A Joyful Welcome!

Welcome to my blog!  I am Jyoti, a certified health counselor, and I am really excited about sharing some quick tips that have made a difference in my health and will hopefully do the same for you!

Since this is my first blog, I would like to start by talking about coconuts, which are very auspicious and used in opening ceremonies, weddings and other religious services.

  • Coconut water is extremely nourishing.   It is a natural isotonic beverage and has very little sugar (natural).  After exercising at the gym or a tennis game, reach out for a packet of coconut water to replenish your body fluids; after all, it has more potassium than most sports drinks! Whenever I feel dehydrated or sick, I quickly get some coconut water from a nearby health food store. It's great for the immune system.  There are many brands, my favorite is Zico!  Click here for more information.

I always have a tough time when I visit Chinatown – whether to have that delicious, soothing coconut water from a fresh young coconut or my fav bubble tea!  ??  The healthy side wins!

Will continue more on my next …..


  1. I love coconut water too. Tell us how coconuts are used in wedding ceremonies though - I didn't know that!

  2. My toddler and I drink coconut water every day. I love using it in smoothies as a base instead of milks (cow's, soy, oat, almond, etc.) or yogurt. :)

  3. Hi Lisa, I am going to try it in my next smoothie. I've tried the light coconut milk and that's delish! I found a recipe for almond milk with pineapples. Have you tried coconut water with pineapple?
