My fruit intake went up significantly though - and all that sugar (and alcohol) let me return home significantly 'softer'... It's that awkward feeling when all of your comp clothes are just a bit too tight and you want to wear stretchy pants everywhere... :-/ maybe that's just me...
Anyway I had coconut water almost every morning in Thailand and I happen to love them. I don't drink them because I think its better than water or because it has some magic slimming property(it doesn't) I just like them. So once I'd drank the water I decided I wanted to use the flesh inside instead of just throwing it out. There is probably an awesome way to spilt these... I just threw it against concrete till it cracked and washed it inside... Lucky I don't own a café eh?
PS: these pancakes have a reasonable amount of good fats. I estimate around 38gm... I ate this for a
weekend breakfast and didn't turn into the Michelin man - coconut is majority medium-chain triglycerides. My 'brother-in-law' can explain much more clearly than me why these are good to eat but in lieu of that just google if you are interested!
