Ahh the lucky duck!! Hawaii AND fresh coconuts?! That would be amazing - they must have tasted superb and been so nourishing.
I live in Canada (needless to say.. coconuts don't grow here lol), so young coconuts are hard to come by, and to make the worse the one store that sold them (an hour away, I might add) just stopped carrying them. But it's amazing just how good you feel after drinking to coconut water. It was really interesting, I was absolutely dehydrated one day and I could feel my electrolytes were off, and I'd never tried a coconut before, but I looked at it in the store and got a craving for it. So when I got home I cut it open and drank the liquid and felt so much better right away. That blew me away - the body always knows!!
