Ride Out the Flu With Coconut Water and Coconut Milk

Sick as a dog with the flu

According to the CDC, flu reports are widespread throughout the United States, as of January 4, 2014.  If you have the misfortune of contracting a case of influenza,  coconut water and coconut milk can provide you with a basic level of dietary nourishment during your illness.

Stay Hydrated With Coconut Water

Coconut water contains vital electrolytes, like potassium, sodium and magnesium, which can prevent dehydration.  Plus, coconut water contains small amounts of B and C vitamins and minerals like zinc.
Drinking coconut water is an excellent way to keep your caloric intake up when you're down with a cold or the flu.

Put Something On Your Stomach: Coconut Milk

Coconut milk contains all 3 main dietary nutrients: Fats, protein and carbohydrates.  A 1/4 cup of  High-fat canned coconut milk (22% fat), sweetened a little more with  juice can really be filling when you don’t feel like eating heavier foods.

Flu Shots and Home Remedies

Flu shots are the only clinically proven and accepted medical treatment that lessens the symptoms of influenza. Get a flu shot before it’s too late!

Then add coconut water and coconut milk to the list of your essential home remedies like chicken noodle soup  for colds and flu.

Get Answers About Coconut For The Daniel Fast

My research reveals that some but not all coconut products may be eaten on the Daniel Fast. The 10 day Daniel Fast is described in the Bible's Book of Daniel, chapters 1 and 10.

Coconut Goes with All Fruits
I learned that Fruits are permitted and coconut is a fruit.   Also "Quality" Oils are permitted… coconut oil is a quality oil just like olive oil.

But I’m on the fence about coconut water and coconut milk. Both are “pleasant” and sweet.  They are also highly nutritious.

Coconut water is just the pure juice from within the coconut seed pod.    There are many  shipwreck survivors' stories and patients' medical accounts of  living only on coconut meat and water for days  and weeks.

It seems that coconut sugar would be completely off-limits.

I’ve read biblical references, but I’m still not sure if some coconut products are OK to eat on the Daniel Fast.   I am not a biblical scholar.

So I will be conferring with my church officials and pastor about eating any of the many different versions of coconut when I do the Daniel Fast.   And I've got to fast, because Jesus says "And when you fast... "  in Matthew 6:16.
