Coconut Water

Part of the detox included drinking coconut water in the morning, between breakfast and lunch. After drinking it for a few days I've come to enjoy it – despite the funky smell. I did some quick research to see why I was drinking it and I discovered that it might be the magic cure for a hang-over. It's full of electrotlyes (potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorous) that can quickly re-hydrate your poor shriveled brain. I haven't had a chance to test my theory, and I'm not planning any benders, so I'll have to follow up on this one later.

Did you know that coconut water can be used in place of saline? Amazing.

I like the mason jar you brought and drank the coconut water out of! And hang on- saline? So if you don't have saline to wash your contact lens with, replace with coconut water??

Saline, as in intravenous. I'm not sure you'd want to use it as eye drops.

Bring the coconut water to Vegas...we'll test it there.
