Coconuts are one of the greatest gifts on this planet. No matter where you are, what you have done, how much you have mistreated your body, fresh young coconut flesh, coconut water, coconut cream, and/or coconut oil can save your life.
The coconut is a natural water filter that takes almost nine months to filter each liter (quart) of water in the shell. This clear coconut water is one of the highest sources of electrolytes found in nature.
Young coconut water is nearly identical to human blood plasma, making it a universal donor. During the Pacific battles of World War ll, between 1941 and 1945, both sides in the conflict used coconut water siphoned directly from the coconut to give emergency plasma transfusions to wounded soldiers. Plasma makes up 55 percent of the human blood. The remaining 45 percent of our blood consists of hemoglobin-which is essentially transformed plant blood (chlorophyll).
When we consume a drink consisting of 55 percent fresh coconut water and 45 percent fresh green-leaf juice (or wheatgrass juice) we give ourselves an instant blood transfusion.

    Kimberly Snyder's How to Enjoy a Thanksgiving Dinner without Gaining Weight →

    While not completely raw, these recipes look really yummy and there’s some great tips here on how to not completely wreak havoc on your digestive system during the holidays.  Plus, the stuff here looks traditional enough to not scare off my carnivorous family.

    Last meal at Bonobo’s - a bunch of their sides with a flax cracker on a massive plate.  They sadly are closing their doors this Sunday, November 20th.  They were by far my favorite lunch break spot. RIP.

    "In two weeks, these moron frozen food companies - pizza industry, french fry industry — have basically bought, bribed, bullied Congress, who have completely let everyone down, into basically making it okay to feed them french fries every day."
