Hello everyone, this is Michelle Phelan, Nutritionist at Blossom Bariatrics and today I’m going to talk about some of my very favorite protein snacks and supplements.

This is coconut water. Coconut water is full of electrolytes, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids. It is nature’s Pedialyte or nature’s Gatorade.

What I have here is pure, unsweetened, unflavored coconut water and it’s not from concentrate. This is one of the many brands that are out there.

I always recommend a pure unsweetened coconut water because again, bariatric patients are at risk to becoming dehydrated and this is again, nature’s Gatorade.
