I grew up going to the beach in Ecuador, and coconuts were sold everywhere. I remember they were so fresh and cheap, less than $.50, can you believe it. The sad part is that when I was growing up coconuts were a No-No food. Everyone was worried about its fat content and even though I drank the fresh water, I rarely ate the delicious food/meat inside of it. Today coconuts are a power star and a must in anyone’s diet. Filled with super good-for-you fats, nutrients and vitamins. coconuts have become the new rock-star on the health food store.
The other day i went to visit a friend and realized that they were cutting down all the coconuts of the palm trees of her street, I asked the nice man working there what were they doing with the coconuts once they had cut them down. He gave me a bizarre look, and pointed the truck and said -leave them in the trash. Woo-hoo I stroke gold. I asked him if I could take some, and said yes. so here it is, our little coconut heaven. everyone is enjoying it.
