I should coco

Dr Martins' Coco DrinkHiding inside every young green coconut is a fantastic resource — coconut water. It is rich in health-giving nutrients and is known as the ‘Fluid of Life’ thanks to its perfect mixture of electrolytes that balance the body’s natural fluid levels.

It can be extremely difficult to find an organic green coconut in the UK and so instead, we have Dr Martin’s Coco Drink. Dr Martin’s Coco Drink contains nothing but pure organic juice from young green coconuts (cocos nucifera) and is the next best thing to drinking fresh juice straight from the coconut.

As well as being incredibly refreshing, Coco Drink is an effective way to replenish fluids and salts lost during sporting activities and is much more effective than any heavily-marketed energy drink. Coconut water is an isotonic beverage and naturally contains potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium, which quickly help to rehydrate your body. This is especially beneficial during and after any physical activity — including performing on stage! One of the UK’s best-loved male bands regularly buys Coco Drink from Detox Your World for use on tour and to maintain their energy levels when performing. We wish we could name names but instead we’ll just take a moment to imagine them all drinking Coco Drink. With no shirts on.

Coco Drink is rich in essential minerals, amino acids and vitamins, especially vitamin C. It is free from cholesterol, lactose, milk-protein, preservatives and colourings. Coco Drink is beneficial for people suffering with lactose intolerance, especially children, as it is a versatile alternative to milk and contains calcium to help strengthen growing bones.

Dr Martins’ Coco Drink is suitable for people of any age group thanks to its organic composition and natural preservation process, ensuring it is free from bacteria. As Coco Drink contains nothing but 100% pure coconut juice, it is free from saturated fats and has a very low calorific value, the lowest of all natural juice drinks. It is also free from refined sugars and is low in carbohydrates. Coconut water contains large quantities of lauric acid, an important fat. The only other substance containing equal levels of lauric acid is breast milk.

The coconut juice found in Dr Martins’ Coco Drink comes from an organically certified plantation in Brazil that grows a specific species of dwarf coconut palm tree especially for Dr Martins’. The coconut trees are grown without synthetic fertilisers or chemical nasties.

The coconut palm, or cocos nucifera, can grow to heights of 100ft and is a common sight on tropical beaches. The plant was named by Spanish explorers, who thought the three indentations on the coconut resembled a monkey — the Spanish word coco means ‘monkey face’. Nucifera means nut-bearing. It is an incredibly versatile plant with the all parts of the coconut as well as the leaves being used in some way. In Sanskrit, the coconut palm is known as kalpa vriksha, which means ‘tree that gives all which is necessary for living’. It is estimated that approximately one third of the world’s population depends on the coconut palm for their food or income.

Coconut juice has been used in traditional medicine for centuries and is reported to have many health benefits. Coconuts also contain anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-fungal properties however the main benefit of coconut water is its natural isotonic properties, quickly and effectively rehydrating the body and rebalancing electrolyte levels. It is naturally sterile and identical to human blood plasma and it is reported that in some parts of the Pacific during World War Two, coconut water was regularly used to give emergency transfusions to wounded soldiers. This is where it gained its named as the Fluid of Life.

As well as our world-famous customers, other celebrities have also discovered coconut water, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Courtney Cox and Demi Moore who are reported to enjoy it as a post-workout drink.

No Bull
To make your own energy drink without gallons of caffeine, sugar and junk, simply mix equal quantities of Dr Martins’ Coco Drink with fresh celery juice. Enjoy before, during and after any physical activity to naturally restore fluids and rebalance your electrolyte levels.

The Jason
For another variation, try mixing Coco Drink with freshly squeezed orange juice. Enjoy with or without your shirt on.

Dip them, spread them, love them

April 25, 2011

Our range of premium seed and nut butters is amongst our best-selling products. The range includes tahini, hempini, white almond butter, whole almond butter and a delicious cacao and almond spread. These versatile additions to your fridge are perfect for dipping, spreading or adding to smoothies, soups and more.

As you would expect from a range of Detox Your World products, all the butters are 100% raw and 100% organic. In keeping with our mission to stock the most ethical and planet-friendly products we can, these butters are all made in the UK. They come in glass jars too, so once you’ve eaten all the butter (and licked the lid to make sure you’ve found every last bit), the jar can be reused or recycled as you wish.

Detox Your World seed and nut butters are packed with healthy fats, such as Omega 3 and 6. These essential fatty acids are vitally important within our diets as they help the body process certain fat-soluble vitamins and are key players in cell membrane maintenance. There are many dietary sources of essential fatty acids; Omega 6 can be found in some fruit, nuts and grains and Omega 3 is abundant in green leafy vegetables, spirulina, flax and pumpkin seeds. Adding a dollop of raw organic nut and seed butter to your morning smoothie or enjoying some as a dip is an easy way to ensure you get enough good fat.

Raw organic white almond butterWhite almond butter
Our white almond butter is made with 98% fresh raw organic almonds, which are skinned using a non-heat method before being blended with raw organic sunflower oil.

Cookery School

…presents a day of…

Decadence & Nutrition

@ Tilton House, Firle, East Sussex BN8 6LL

www.tiltonhouse.co.uk

Saturday 14th August 2010 10.00am – 6.00pm

Welcome to the first of many cookery classes hosted at the beautiful Tilton House, nestled in the heart of the Sussex Downs. The day offers the opportunity to learn over a dozen different vegan dishes, eat a decadent & nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner, take home some of the dishes you prepare, visit the kitchen gardens as they spring into life for the summer ahead and also just relax and enjoy the wonderful surroundings of this gorgeous Georgian Country House.

On the day you will learn a wide range of fantastic plant based dishes, various different kitchen techniques & knife skills, get stuck in with hands on making, share in ideas on menu planning and building different dishes using some of the same ingredients and cooking methods. Not to mention enjoy some wonderful botanical based foods, that are not only bursting with flavour but also loaded with health benefits.

On the day…

First start the day by learning how to make raw nut milk and then enjoy some homemade granola. Then learn how to make the granola and also make your own granola bars to take home.

Raw Pear “Cheesecake”We will then show you how to make a decadent raw and dairy free pear ‘cheesecake’, which we will share for dinner.

Next some Tomato, red lentil and basil soup with lemon cream. Served with an olive and rosemary flatbread that you will make yourself, choosing from a wide variety of flours – to demonstrate how different flours give differing results.

Lunch will be served as soon as we have made some velvety smooth cashew based ice cream to have for dessert.

After lunch you will have a chance to visit the kitchen gardens, that will be brimming with food – some of which we will utilise.

Next we will prepare a red lentil and mushroom lasagne using the base mixture from the soup we already made for lunch, demonstrating how to make very different dishes from exactly the same base ingredients. We will also make a cashew ‘cheese’ sauce – that is an excellent substitute for the typical dairy version.

Everyone will then prepare a stunning canapé I like to call The med-Jewel, using dates, avocado and some other nice things.

Some quick easy salads to serve with dinner and then onto the really fun part – truffles. After a demonstration of truffle making, you will get the opportunity to make your very own vegan chocolate truffles experimenting with different flavours and ingredients as you like – these will then be saved for you take home, assuming they make it that far!!!!!

After all that, dinner will be served with nothing left to do except enjoy the food you helped create and share in the days creativity.

You will also go home with full recipes for everything made, the treats you made yourself and perhaps other goodies?

The day is priced at £100 but as an introductory offer, if booked before August 1st we would like to offer it for only £90. Places are limited but don’t worry if you miss out this time there will be more opportunities to follow, for future dates please contact us.
