I would imagine that should a young raw coconut ever get cast in a movie it would get a starring role as the sheriff.
Why the sheriff you ask?
(In fact you may even be wondering why a tropical fruit would get cast in an action movie at all)
Allow me to explain…
It seems to me in old westerns that the sheriffs role involves showing up unexpectedly to ‘clean up’ a town that has been overrun with rouge outlaws. (gasp!) He then heroically drives out the ‘bad guys’, restores order and of course wins the young maidens heart.
I would say that is fairly consistent with what I know about coconuts. The young coconut came into my life unexpected, cleaned out the renegade bacteria in my digestive tract, restored balance in my body, and helped me lose a few extra pounds. Of course all of that chivalry led to us falling in love and living happily ever after!(The End.)
The only thing is,….. I am not sure how a coconut would look in chaps,… however that is just a minor detail…
Showing up unexpectedly: Coconuts are a natural sports drink without all the artificial colours and sugar (or even worse artificial sweeteners, hello Diet Red Bull…ick!) most people are unaware of how awesome coconuts are,….yet! (insert music from The Good, The Bad and The Ugly here)
Driving out the bad guys & Restoring Order:Coconut oil is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and has one of the highest natural sources of electrolytes in nature. Electrolytes are ionized salts in our cells, that transport energy throughout the body.
The molecular structure of coconut water is identical to human blood plasma, which means that it is immediately recognized by the body and put to good use. Drinking the juice from a young coconut is like giving your body an instant blood transfusion. In fact this was common practice during World War II in the Pacific, where both sides in the conflict regularly used coconut water, siphoned directly from the coconut, to give emergency transfusions to wounded soldiers.
Winning the young maidens heart: Proven to aid in weightloss simply by eating them. (Medium chain fatty acids are sent to your liver to be converted to energy instead of being stored as fat and also boost your metabolism) Eat to lose? Oh, I am so in! (insert clip of me and the coconut riding off into the sunset here!)
(*Please note however you do not have to be young or a ‘maiden’ to enjoy a loving relationship with young coconuts!)
