I have two questions-I tried to look on line and did not have much luck-
question 1) is corn good or bad for you (raw of course)
2) just wondering what is the nutrional vaule of young coconuts and their juice inside?
That is all-two things I have been wondering about-I love young coconuts :)

I love corn, sadly just read an article stating that in the State of CA at least it is genetically modified. Corn is the one vegetable I will only buy organic.

Great questions ;) ,
In general, corn that is not certified organic has probably been genetically modified (meaning it does more harm than good). If you google GMO or genetically modified corn you will have more information than you may want :o . Corn (not GMO) is a starch that is wonderful for energy and nutrients (too much may promote weight gain).
I found this link about coconuts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coconut) that sums everything up very well including the nutrient values. They are wonderful for you and very tasty. So many raw desserts call for them especially those that need to taste like dairy. YUMMY plain and whipped up into smoothies or desserts.
I love them most for their antibacterial and fungal properties (they help fight sickness) and the fact that the fat from a coconut is used immediately for energy..never stored in my hips :D . If you mix them with Alissa's green food powder (or leafy greens) with fruit in a smoothie the greens are assimilated better and their vitamins and minerals are transferred more effectively to the cells because of the natural fats from the coconut. It is also like getting a blood infusion because the coconut water is very similar to blood plasma. Pretty cool :) .
Hope the link answers some questions.

Thanks for the responses. Raw Monkey thanks for the information about the coconuts. I always use them for smoothies, but mainly I just add fruit to them and now I will add greens. I am a green smoothie fan-I try to comsume one each day. I also had a feeling regarding the corn.
