One Hundred. Coconut Water.
July 2, 2011 § 4 Comments
Well this is embarrassing. At the time I thought Day One Hundred was actually Day Ninety-Nine. So on Day One-Oh-One I chose an activity to commemorate lasting so long with the blog, thinking it was the centennial activity. Only days later did I realize that I apparently can’t count. So on Day
Ninety-Nine One Hundred, I tried coconut water.
I had first heard about the beverage while researching the raw food diet and what particular foods I would be able to consume (and more importantly, what I couldn’t). Coconut water is indeed “raw.”
I picked up a cardboard bottle of the drink on my way home from work and peeled back the foil covering the little hole in the top. The package told me drinking it was like sticking a straw in a coconut, but I didn’t have a straw. I felt like it should have come with a straw, reminiscent of the old Hi-C juice boxes from childhood. But it was pretty drinkable without the aid of a plastic tube. It didn’t really taste like coconut, more like tropical flavored water. It was pretty tasty, and I wished I had saved some of the juice when I hacked open a coconut on Day Sixty-Eight. It’s funny, though, because I always thought the liquid inside of the fruit was called milk. Shows what I know.
