Partied Like A Rockstar....

We have all had those fun nights out, where we promise ourselves we will be responsible and drink like a lady(AKA...no shots), and yet somehow, we get caught up in the moment (I mean when Lil Jon is demanding that we take shots, shots, shots..who am I to turn him down?)...

and as easily as they go down and seem like a good idea at the time, inevitably you end up feeling and looking like this this next day...

(different morning after, but you get the idea...)

As I continue to get older, my hangovers continue to get more and more brutal. Which is why I am so glad that a nice demo lady at Whole Foods introduced me to Coconut Water. Full of vitamins and potassium, these puppies not only hydrate but help to get your moving when that is about the last thing you want to do. I have tried a variety of flavors but have concluded that the coconut water with pineapple is my favorite.

The Vita Coco is my favorite brand, and usually on the cheaper side. I picked up two bottles for $3 the other day. Well worth it!

My 2nd go to brand is ONE Coconut Water. It is pretty close in price to the Vita Coco but the flavor isn't as good to me.


Zico is my choice if I can't find either of the two above. I have tried the mango and the passion fruit and will advise the passion is pretty tasty. Zico is the most expensive I have found of all three, so unless it is on sale I don't ever really buy it. However, it will still get the job done.

So if Gatorade is just too sweet, or you prefer to put just natural goods in your body, give the coconut water a shot. I am telling you, your head and body will thank you.

(and remember to ignore lil jon no matter how persistent he is next time)

Hysterical! I love the after pic. I tried Coconut water once and didn't love the taste. But it was plain. I should give a flavored version a try.

OK, where was this my first mom's weekend at WSU when I was trying not to puke at the beautiful mother's breakfast? Don't do flip cup with vodka, stick to beer.

Thanks for the rec! Although I still crave Cougar Country after a rough night! :)

Michelle said...

Omg hahaha! I love your after pic! Hopefully we don't look like that after our Solvang wine weekend in Dec, eeek!

Michelle~ I will be bringing us some coconut water for sure, just in case!

Coug Gal~ Cougar Country sounds divine! With fry sauce - Yum!


Holly ~ A mimosa would have prolly put me over the edge, this was one of those days where not even the hair of the dog would have helped!

Blyth~ The banana was easily digested and helped with my upset stomach, usually I am all about the grease! Miami = trouble!!

Jamie~ I really prefer the flavored ones to the plain. I just tried the O.N.E. with a splash of pink guava and it was INCREDIBLE!!

Sweet Nothings~ I was guilty of Papa Johns pizza at 3 AM after every drunken evening out. Oh college weight!
