    I totally agree about coconut water. I gave it a shot the other day after seeing it on Jenna’s blog. I drank about two sips before pouring it (and my $1.50) down the drain. At least we tried! 🙂

    Yea there are definitely some healthy things I wish I liked. Like tea!! Gosh I just don’t like it! I keep trying it though hoping my tastebuds will change.

    I LOVE tempeh! its has such a great texture. and I love that you can break it up so that it almost resembles ground meat.

    great eats today!

    I love finding new things at Whole Foods – but I think I would feel the same way about coconut water. I’m going to steer clear!

    Mm that peanut sauce sounds great! I have a package of tempeh waiting for me when I get back to school – I will definitely have to look for that sauce to go with it 🙂

    Wow, the ice cream with chocolate chips on top is definitely making me drool a lil’ bit!

    About the coconut water…

    You should try a flavored variety. At the Bikram yoga studio I go to (Boston), they sell Zico brand (www.zico.com) – original, passion fruit, and mango flavors. I tried the original first and just like you, I didn’t care for it, but I decided to give Zico another shot by trying the passion fruit & mango varieties… OMG. SO DELICIOUS! They are just flavored with the essence of the fruits (not added sugars) and let me tell you, so yummy and refreshing.

    If you can’t get it down in FL, e-mail me your address and I’ll send you some to try!

    That stir-fry looks awesome. What is the texture of tempeh like? I always just think it’s like tofu, but I guess not.

    I’m somewhat relieved that you didn’t like the coconut water. I’ve seen others drink it and I like coconut, but really it just doesn’t sound good to me. 🙂

    Yummy dinner!

    Aw sorry to hear you didn’t like the cocunut water, I tried it recently and loved it! Must be an acquired taste.

    Glad I’m not the only one who does not enjoy coconut water…at ALL. Weird! and I LOVE coconut!

    Glad you found some goodies at whole foods – that place is amazing and dangerous at the same time!

    Good to know about the coconut water. I’ve been wanting to try it thinking it would be sweet. I’m guessing it’s a no-go.

    I’m not brave enough to try coconut water… I’m going to take your word for it and guess I won’t like it. 🙂

    I don’t like coconut water too much either, although I do enjoy dried coconut at least.

    I do not like coconut at all. I don’t think I could swallow that water.

    I’ve tried coconut water out of real coconuts (with the fancy straw and all) two times, and it hasn’t grown on me yet. I thought maybe because the coconut water was warm it made it taste extra icky?

    I tried the coconut water over the weekend and it was a no go for me too!!

    My daughter tried it and make the funniest face. Needless to say, we wont be buying that again!

    i did consider buying a carton at WF the other day of the coconut water, just because i was amazed they even sold it in the uk – but didn’t. now i’m not quite sure i ever will! i don’t want anything to interfere with my love for coconut!

    that tamari sauce looks amazing, what a great homemade stirfry!

    I’m not a big fan of coconut water either. Too sweet for me. I did like the flavored Passion Fruit one though.

    You guys are all nuts! I LOVE coconut water, but have never had that particular type. Maybe they just dont control the quailty of their coconuts in that product?

    I LOVE tempeh! I’ve been eating that stuff since I was a kid. It’s a big staple back home in Indonesia. We marinade it in garlic sauce though and then fry it, but I also eat it the healthy way.

    You should also be able to get tempeh at a southeast asian market.

    As for the coconut water – what they sell at Whole Foods DOES NOT compare to the real thing. Another thing I love from back home is slicing off the top of a young coconut (the green ones) and then put a straw in it and drink the water. So sweet and yum. Of course the fruit itself is great as well.

    It’s too bad you don’t like the coconut water. I think it’s quite tasty, but I’ve only ever had it once. I’m too cheap to actually buy it!

    The stirfry looks great. I really must try out some tempeh one of these days.
