Coconut Water to Beat the Heat
Many people are falling ill under this torturous weather. I boil barley frequently for the family as they (especially Ethan) are getting really heaty from being out in this scorching heat. Ayden and I are quite okay as we spend most of our time in the comfort of our home but Ethan and the father are always out and it is important to keep them well hydrated. Ethan’s nose bleed episodes are getting more frequent and even Ayden got it once the other day.
Try as I might, Ethan has finally succumbed and got under the weather today. I noticed he was emitting heat when he was seated next to me during dinner. Touched him and true enough, he was feverish.
Being well hydrated is really important especially when you are having fever. To be well hydrated, our body requires electrolytes, which balance out our blood chemistry. Coconut water is a good source of electrolytes. I ordered a coconut drink for him but as usual, this boy of mine doesn’t like to drink coconut water or any fruit juices. I forced him to take at least 3 sips to replenish his electrolyte reserves as he attended Physical Education earlier today despite being unwell.
From young, Ethan won’t touch coconut. Even during holidays, he’ll just leave the coconut there untouched.
Ayden on the other hand, enjoys every sip of the fragrant coconut water which is a good thing as coconut water has essential vitamins and minerals.
It is definitely better to beat the heat with coconut water as it is sweet with fewer calories compared to Ais Kacang or Ice Cream lah.
