Coconut water...really??

Reboot Newbies

Posted by Jennifer on 4 years ago

I just got my juicer today and I'm very excited to start my reboot. This weekend I'm going grocery shopping for all the fruit and veggies I need. I read somewhere that you have to drink coconut water, is this true? I can't stand it. If I need it maybe I can add it to my juice?

    you can get by without it. not all coconut water is created equal though ... this first one i bought was awful, even though it was flavoured with pineapple. the 2nd one, "refresh" brand, was much better.

    To mask the musky nasty coconut water taste :-), you can add it to juice or infuse it with fruits. I don't always drink the coconut water, but I've moved o to juice + eating. If you have muscle cramps then definitely add it in.

    I found raw coconut water in the refrigerated section at Sprouts Farmers Market. It is pink, clear looking and the best I've had. I read in one of the nutritionists posts that you can use maple water too. Their important because they replace the lost electrolytes from juicing. Good luck!

    I hear ya Jennifer, OMG I had it for the first time yesterday and it was nasty! My husband agreed, but I do understand it's importance for electrolytes. I found some juices in the list that say's it's got some. :) I did buy one with the pineapple and have yet to try it, but i'm glad to see that you can mix with the juice. I'm just thinking about after workouts and bad times in the washroom. :( Great post!

    I have tried some pretty bad coconut water, so I hear what you are saying. The one I have found that I like best is VitaCoco. I was drinking it even before this juice fast.

    Personally, the only type of tasty coconut water is chopped straight off the coconut tree and served to me on a white sandy beach by a handsome and naturally athletic stranger in a sarong wrap. I should know since I was born on an island in the South Pacific. So, I'd say ditch the grocery store boxed coconut water! Consume what you like. Electrolytes from coconut liquids can also be found in most plant based foods (and fruits). So, spinach, chard, kale, beets, and things like oranges, bananas and so forth. It may not contain the "coconut water" health ratio in just one serving but with the amount of juicing we do on reboot, you just may get enough to keep your body healthy and happy. And, toss a fresh ginger in a few juices. It may increase good circulation, spike up your happiness level and make you forget that store boxed coconut experience. For the record, I have friends who love coconut water. So, the moral of this experience? To each his own. Cheers!

    Smokeless Joe is right! The first two coconut water brands I tried tasted like water that had been used to boil an old sweatsock. Seriously, they tasted like dirty socks smell. Finally I found a brand called 'One' and tastes pretty good. Just keep searching and you'll find one that you can tolerate.

    There are things about the reboot that I'm not crazy about but I've decided to just bite the bullet and follow it to the letter. I know myself and if I start cutting corners or doing it "my way" I won't stick to it the way I should. But that's just me :)

    Here's a link to the non-revolting coconut water I found.

    I juice a watermelon then freeze it. I add the cubes to my coconut water. So good. Try it! Coconut water is good for the electrolytes.

    The thing about the coconut water is that it is high in potassium and balances your electrolytes especially with all of the juices we are drinking that cause us to excrete water. If your sodium gets to low you can get confused and lightheaded, and this can happen quite suddenly. Sodium and potassium are what helps your heart to pump. If your potassium is too low you feel very weak. So my opinion is to drink the coconut water, find a brand you can tolerate. Some people mix a little in with their sweeter juices in the morning and afternoon snack.
