What's the best source to get the highest benefits from Coconut Water?
I'm not an expert, but I can tell you my opinion... The processed Coconut water in the store does not taste like the fresh coconut we get from the trees on our farm. In fact, I can barely stomach the flavor from the processed coconut water. If it were up to me, I would prefer to get the coconut water straight from the coconut instead of buying the processed product.
The health benefits from fresh versus processed?
I am going to agree with the opinion of Hippocrates - 'Let food be thy medicine'.
Therefore, if I have the option, then I'm going to drink it straight from the coconut
, What are the best Coconuts for getting the most nutrients?
What I have been told by my family of medical experts, is that the 'Young Coconuts' (aka green coconuts ~ as seen in the photo above) are the best source of vital nutrients: the water and the white coconut meat.
Don't confuse the brown coconuts that you might see in the grocery stores with these Young coconuts. The brown coconuts are considered the 'Old' coconuts (see below). Their primary purpose is for baking/cooking and for making coconut oil.
Where is the best place to get high quality organic coconuts?

They Philippines is known for:
Over the past three days we’ve been enjoying the effects of Typhoon Nona. I mean who doesn’t like 80 mile per hour gusts of wind along with bouts of heavy rain and of course… power outages.
So how do we prepare for Typhoon Nona? We go to the beach at sunset to Casa de Schaefer to enjoy his typhoon themed dinner party.
Malcolm and I are good friends and we are also international cargo pilots. Lately we have been assisting Santa Claus by moving various Christmas supplies and gifts around the globe. I think we are part of his Christmas Season staff. I like to think we are deputized elves.
Malcolm recently had the construction completed on palatial ‘Casa de Schaefer’ - his beautiful beach house. It is extremely beautiful plus it comes with an executive chef - Sir Harold. Harold was enticed to leave the #1 restaurant in Pueta Galera to be the personal chef and property manager of Casa de Schaefer. Harold, along with his lovely wife Bing and their 2 children can be seen daily on the island - I think they are searching for secret ingredients for the delicious meals he prepares. But tonight the preparations are complete, and Malcolm has invited us to be his inaugural guests for his first Typhoon Party.
As the sun is setting and the torches are lit, we approach his home at the last slice of sunset.
‘Hey Amigo, Welcome!’
Malcolm welcomes us to his estate with tropical beverages. ‘Sunsets are best when shared with friends with cocktails.’ All of us agree with a toast to the sunset.
Conversations lead to a tour of his estate and eventually to the dining area. Chef Harold greats us in uniform and serves us our first course ~ pan seared veal with an artistic Asian sauce. Everyone agrees it is delicious.
As the plates are cleared and the intensity of the wind increases, we are told of the next course. Lasagna with hand made pasta noodles served with an organic Asian salad and fresh garlic bread.
… and the lights go out and the sky unloads it’s wrath.
‘Not to worry,’ Harold assures us, ‘I will start the generator.’ And minutes later, Casa de Schaefer is back online and the delicious dinner is served.
Clinking glasses, laughter and good conversation are all part of the evening.
‘We are going to have to do this again,’ Malcolm teases us, ‘But the next one will be Bigger! Mark your calendar ~ January 16th, 2016. Live Music, 3 roasted pigs, pina coladas and much more. Can you be here? Everyone is invited.’
‘We’ll be here!’
‘Like I said, everyone is invited ~ preferably girls... but I want this beach party packed and rocking.’
‘I think we can help get the word out. Don’t be surprised if you see over a thousand guests.’
With that we all exchange hugs and… Fzzzz! Pop!
‘Sir Malcolm, I think the generator is out. Maybe we can get a spare generator so this doesn’t happen at the party.’
‘Excellent idea! Nothing like a well stocked fridge, a generator, and some good help can't overcome!'
As you can see, surviving a typhoon in paradise is Like Winning the Lottery

As you know, we live on an undiscovered tropical island in the center of a South Pacific archipelago knows as The Philippines Islands. Not only do we just live here, but we also have an organic farm where we grow fruit, vegetables and nuts in the rich volcanic soil. Tonight we are expecting the full force of a typhoon, and apparently this typhoon comes with the excitement of a thunderstorm.
Click! Clack! BANG!!! ….Wheeeee!
‘Did you hear that Greg?’
‘What do you think that was?’
‘Lighting and thunder.’
‘But what about that other sound? I think it was one of our pigs. I hope she wasn't struck by lightning! I’m going to check on her. Will you come with me?’
With the curiosity of tasting my first bite of lightning fried pork, I reluctantly follow Rose out into the rain.
The sight of seeing my wife running barefoot into a thunderstorm in only a black mini-dress to rescue a pig seems like inappropriate farm rescue attire… but this is the Philippines, and it’s More Fun in The Philippines.
Down the hill we run to where we heard the thunder and the crying pig. As we approach I can definitely smell something burning, but I’m not sure what it is.
Getting their ahead of me, Rose cries out, ’Greg, this is awful. You’re not going to like this.’
And I’m thinking, ‘Who doesn’t like fried pork. Especially lighting fried pork.’
As I get there I see why Rose is distraught… and I am too. Debris is everywhere. It looks like a small explosion took place… and I’m not talking about lightning exploded fried pork. Instead, it appears to be lightning induced pig fear… and our pigs are free from their pen.
‘Rose, I guess we are going to have some good old fashion mud wrestling.’
Rose looks down at her black mini dress she is wearing. Then she looks at me. ‘Let’s Get it On!’
… and she dives in.
I don’t know how it happened, but in less than 1 hour, our pigs where happily enjoying playing in their mud, Rose was happily ‘enjoying’ seeing me covered in pig scented mud, and I am amazed. ‘Why am I covered in mud but you are completely mud free?’
‘Stop complaining dirty boy, and let’s get back to the house. I’m going to scrub you outside like a dog.’
‘I like that idea!’
‘I knew you would. Not let’s get moving, we need to be at Casa de Shaeffer for the Typhoon party’
It’s More Fun in the Philippines and it’s Like Winning the Lottery.
In the 21st century, I believe that Robert Kiyosaki is right. I believe that you need to have multiple streams of income if you want to earn the income you need to have the life you want to live. And one of my sources of income is flying night freight around the globe. This month, being December, I think I am working or Santa Claus.
I have a break in my flying schedule for several days so it is time to head home to ‘Paradise’ - our life on an undiscovered tropical island in the South Pacific.
How will I get home? I wish Santa Claus could do some magic, but it looks like I will be doing it by planes, buses, boats and more.
What is my route? I will be flying from Chicago to Louisville to Anchorage, to Incheon, South Korea, to Kalibo, Aklan Island. From there, I will ride a bus to Catalan and hire a motorcycle with a side care to take me to a boarding house for the night. The next morning I will catch the first boat out from Caticlan to Looc, Tablas Island - Home.
Chicago to Louisville was a pleasant ride on SouthWest airlines to where I would catch cargo flights to Incheon. Thirty-two hours later, I arrive in Incheon in a sleep deprived daze. I’m processed through immigration and security at the cargo terminal before I transition to the Incheon passenger terminal to ride on AirAsia airlines. Four hours later I board Asia in seat 1C and I’m greeted by the flight attendants, ‘I know you. You live in the Philippines. We are from the Philippines too! We read your book. Let us know if we can do anything for you during your flight to Kalibo.’ During the flight, I slept the entire 4 hours. So I never got to talk to take them up on their hospitable offer.
‘Welcome back to The Philippines, sir Pasden. How can we help you this evening?’ I was kindly processed through immigration, customs and put on a comfortable air conditioned bus just before it began to rain. The ride on the curving 2 lane mountainous road was nerve wracking, but our driver expertly negotiated all the hazards with experienced ease.
‘Sir Pasden, can I hail you a trike to take you to the boarding house after we unload the passengers going to Boracay?’ I drowsily nod and smile.
Thirty pesos later I’m welcomed into Em Dukes boarding house. ‘May I carry your bags to your room sir Pasden?’ I am the only guest. With a smile they tell me breakfast will be served at 630am.
I don’t know how many hours it has been since I had last taken a shower, but my body told me it was over due.
I walk out my room clad in a towel and enter the shower. I know I can take a hot shower, but I choose not to. Not because I want to take a cold shower, but because I don’t like the idea of using what I call the ‘suicide shower’. The locals find it normal to attach 220 volt electrical wires to the plumbing pipes. Me… I want to make it home unfazed. So I opt for the ‘refreshing shower’ (Rose calls a cold shower ‘refreshing’. Me, it’s only 1 step above better than the ‘suicide shower’).
After are few minutes of a teeth chattering shower, I go back to my room and quickly fall asleep on the bed.
What seems like minutes later…
‘Sir Greg. I hope I’m not disturbing you, but your breakfast is ready. You need to eat before you go home to your family.’
Eggs, pancakes, bacon and black coffee wake me up and I realize that I’m almost home. Enjoying my big breakfast in the tropical bird garden makes me smile as I realize the serenity of these tropical island surroundings. I really enjoy it’s beauty and simplicity.
I pay my bill, and I ride a trike over to the pier to where my next mode of transportation awaits. It’s what is locally known as a ‘pump boat’. What is a ‘pump boat’? The best way for me to describe a pump boat is a large hand made wooden outrigger. But instead of using men with oars to get us across the water, the boat builders kindly installed a diesel engine. This means that we traveling at a blinding speed of 3 miles per hour across the water :-)
This means that my 8 mile boat ride will take me 3 hours. At least it will be an adventure.
Fortunately the seas are nearly calm and our ride is uneventful as we pass the islands of Boracay and Carabao before entering the bay of Looc (pronounced Low-oak).
After traveling 59 1/2 hours, porters help carry my luggage off the boat and into another trike.
‘Welcome to paradise sir Pasden. To your home?’
‘You are lucky to be home today. Did you hear a typhoon is coming soon?’
I smile… because even with the longest commute I have ever done (59 1/2 hours) It’s more fun in the Philippines.

Do you remember waking up early as a child on Christmas morning to try to get a peak of Santa putting gifts by the tree? This is what I did. Well today I am in Cologne, Germany and it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the plazas.
Why do I say it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas?
Because of the German Christkindlmarkt. These are temporary markets built to replicate the quaint, German, cottages/shops ~ they even include the traditional German costumes ~ it's very festive! Generally they are located in the town plaza and adjacent pedestrian zones. And the shops are filled with crafted ornaments, small gifts, holiday food and 'gluvine' (a Dutch-German hot spiced wine sold in Christmas themed coffee mugs - very cute & collectible). In many towns of Germany and Austria, the season of Advent is ushered in with the opening of the Christmas Market or "Weihnachtsmarkt". In southern Germany and Austria it is sometimes called a "Christkindlmarkt" (literally meaning "Christ child market"). On opening nights onlookers welcome the "Christkind" acted out by a local child.
Aside from the Christmas craft shops - Popular attractions at the markets include the Nativity Scene, Nussknacker (carved Nutcrackers), caroling, Giant Gnome Carving demonstrations (with chainsaws), ice skating and mutual celebration of the season.
What do I like? The traditional German food ~ Gebrannte Mandeln (candied, toasted almonds), traditional Christmas cookies such as Lebkuchen and Magenbrot (soft gingerbread), Bratwurst, aromatic cheese, potato pancakes, and for many visitors one of the highlights of the market is the Gluvine ~ a hot spiced wine (with or without a shot of rum or brandy). I highly suggest a mug (or two) to keep your body warm and your spirits festive - especially when the cold winter air dips below freezing. (NOTE: You can keep the festive gluvine Christmas mug or you can return it for US$3). Enough of the gluvine... I need to enjoy shopping in the markets for toys, Christmas tree decorations and other hand made crafts.
I don't want to give away any secrets, but I believe Santa will have a few extra stocking stuffers this year.
As Pat Smith, Eddie Reed and I explored the market, we discovered that that each plaza had a different style of Gluvine mug. Needless to say, after a couple of these mugs, we were definitely in the Holiday Spirit and ready to eat.
After Potato Cakes, Salmon from the Fish King, Bratwurst and Donner Kebabs, we decided to call it a day. So with our bellies stuffed like Santa and our Sacks packed by local elves, we sloshed through the rain filled puddles to our hotel for a long winter's nap.
FYI - Nearly 4 million tourists come to Cologne, Germany in this 4 week period just to experience this festive Christmas Market. I have to admit, the experience definitely puts you in the Christmas spirit. More so than any other place I've visited. I don't know about you, but I really feel like we won the lottery today.
Enjoy the Hilarious Adventures of my Move to the Philippines
