Bite Me: Coconut Crazy

THE-FASHION-BITE-KATIE-ROOF-BITE-ME-COCONUT-CHIPS-DANG

News flash: I have a new obsession, or rather an old obsession coming to me in a new form…

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE coconut. Anything coconut. Everything coconut. Coconut milk, coconut water, coconut flakes, shredded coconut, coconut butter, coconut oil (I literally bathe in it), coconut palm sugar, plain old coconut. Basically, if you’re a coconut in any form… you are totally welcome into my life.

So, what’s this new obsession? Dang Coconut Chips. Yep, toasted, crunchy, crispy, salty, sweet coconut chips. I’ve tried other coconut chips… but these ones undoubtedly take the cake. They have the perfect taste and the perfect, crunchy consistency. I picked up a bag of these bad boys at Whole Foods the other day and it was love at first site bite. I literally died. Maybe not literally, but pretty freaking close. These are hands down the best things I have ever tasted. Yes, you can incorporate these into your favorite recipes or use them as garnishes but I’m perfectly content eating them straight from the bag.

Furthermore, coconut is totally AMAZING for you. They are rich in healthy fat and lauric acid. Coconut boosts energy, increases immunity, regulates blood sugar, nourishes the thyroid, and can help cut down on belly fat. ALl of that and they are freaking delish. These coconut chips are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, all natural, non GMO, and all of that other good stuff!! Oh ya, and they contain only three ingredients… no preservatives or nasty chemicals. Woo-hoo!

I seriously dare you to try these and not fall head over heals! & while you’re at it… spill… what’s your favorite healthy snack?

Chocolate Coconut Water… aka Your New Best Friend

zico chocolate coconut water

K… so I’m kind of obsessed with coconut. Coconut oil, coconut body butter, coconut perfume, coconut milk, even straight up coconut. Despite all of these amazing coconut-y products, I gotta say that for me coconut water takes the cake. It is my absolute favorite bevie and I always have it on me. I pretty much thought that coconut water was the most amazing thing in the whole wide world… until today. Apparently those coconuts have really upped their game and I was completely blown away when I tasted Zico’s chocolate coconut water for the first time today!! OHMYGOSH! It seriously tastes like chocolate milk only way better, lighter, more refreshing, and loaded with all sorts of good for you stuff  [[like electrolytes and potassium]]. Coconut water contains antiviral, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It also serves as a cure all for pretty much whatever ails you… dehydration, sluggishness, intestinal problems, skin issues, the list goes on. It wasn’t until today that I discovered it’s also a cure for a chocolate craving. Yup! One cup contains only 70 calories and is super low in sugar, making it a great choice to satisfy that sweet tooth and gain some much needed nutrition while you’re at it. So go ahead… give it a try. I promise it won’t disappoint!
