New product discovery: powdered coconut electrolytes

24 Mar

Shortly after I first started getting serious about going paleo, my Better Half asked me “What is it with you people and coconuts?”

That’s a fair question. Look through any paleo or primal cookbook, blog, pinterest board, etc. and you’re going to find a disproportionate number of coconut-based foods. Part of this is that coconuts are FRIGGIN’ AWESOME and part of it is that coconut yields a lot of products that are good substitutes for very non-paleo foods. I eat a lot of “cookies” and “candy” that are just different combinations of coconut meat, coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, and sometimes chocolate.

I like coconut water to when I need electrolytes, like if I’ve been exercising particularly hard. Yesterday at the store Better Half spotted some pineapple-flavored powdered coconut electrolytes, and bought them for me. They’re pretty great! They do have a bit of sugar, so go easy, and they don’t taste as awesome as fresh or really high quality packaged coconut water, but they’re definitely a better option than conventional sports drinks.
