An Embarrassment of Coconuts- Coco Vita is tired, Costa Rican au natural is wired. Loved by health nuts and Hollywood royalty, coconut water is the "new" health drink. It's almost as good as a blood transfusion, It slows down ageing, smooths your skin; regulates blood pressur, blood sugar and cholesterol; and it's good for digestive health. Every port of call, I make a habit of drinking some. I'm up to 12 today. That;s right- T-W-E-L_V-E! It helps to speak Spanglish-- only $1 a piece instead of $5. (I'm on a liver/gallbladder detox)
Coconut water is the purest liquid on earth, second only to H20. It's anti-viral, anti-fungal and anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory. This is one of those rare super foods. I am taking The Cure.

In 2009, I blogged:
Sailing Into St Thomas USVI
After five days of Pasta and Pizza on MSC (The Godfather Cruise line) crossing the Atlantic for this re positioning cruise, I feel like a carbo-loading marathoner. The favorite food around here is "Seconds".
Eddie Spaghetti----This "strategy" used when I was an endurance athlete to maximize the storage of glycogen (or energy) in my muscles, doesn't do that much good stuck on The Godfather ship. Definitely has some effects on the metabolism.
So I had to de-sludge with some coconut magic water . Now I am rebooted and suited... later...Generation RX---The Doctor delivers some more coconut magic water: I 've had 4 of them so far today.
