While we must try to adopt a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis, many people pay extra attention to their diet before their wedding. You will see brides indulging in healthy smoothies, having coconut water every day, and making sure they have enough antioxidant-rich foods.
You not only want a glow-from-within look but also want to feel more energetic on the wedding day and during the run-up to it. Which is why, it is advisable to start including coconut water in your pre-wedding diet. It detoxifies your body, improves your skin, cools you down, keeps you hydrated, and improves digestion.
Here are some ways you can include coconut water in your pre-wedding diet.
Drink it on its own
Enjoy coconut water straight from the bottle or fresh coconut as a hydrating and nutritious beverage.
Smoothies and shakes
Add coconut water as a base liquid in your smoothies or protein shakes. It will add a tropical flavour and boost hydration.
Post-workout recovery drink
Coconut water is a natural source of electrolytes, making it an excellent choice for rehydrating after exercise or a hectic day. Drink it after a workout to replenish your body's fluids and minerals.
Use coconut water instead of regular water as a base for fruit-infused water. Add berries, citrus fruits or cucumber to infuse it with additional flavours.
Chia seed pudding
Make a delicious chia seed pudding by combining coconut water with chia seeds. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight until the seeds absorb the liquid, creating a pudding-like texture. Top it with fruits or nuts for added flavour and texture.
Soups and stews
Use coconut water as a liquid base in soups and stews, especially in recipes with a tropical or Asian influence. It can add a subtle sweetness and depth of flavour to the dish.
Marinades and dressings
Incorporate coconut water into marinades or dressings for a hint of tropical flavour. It pairs well with ingredients like lime, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce.
Freeze into ice cubes
Pour coconut water into ice cube trays and freeze them. Use these coconut water ice cubes to add a refreshing twist to your favourite beverages without diluting them.
Mix coconut water with fresh fruit juices or purees, pour them into popsicle moulds, and freeze for a hydrating and delicious frozen treat.
Redefining 'happily ever after'.
It allows you unwind after the wedding and enjoy a better and longer trip later!
