Cocoparadise was born through a girl’s passion for eating healthy and the love for coconuts and sweet treats. This is a little of how it came about…
I never knew the importance of eating well and being active until the last few years of my university life. I’ve been blessed to be able to indulge in whatever I wanted with eating and drinking during my time away. But during one of my visits back in Hong Kong, I did a check-up and it made me become more aware of my health issues.
The doctors warned me that I had dangerously high body fat percentage, fatty liver and was becoming too overweight for my age and height. This was the wake up call that made me reflect more about my health and my body. I was happy, yet never was I confident or did I love my body. I never really took notice of my habits and how bad my skin and groggy my body was always feeling. I started with simple and small changes, one step at a time. I became more aware of what I was eating, and pushed myself to be more active. I then started learning more about eating cleaner and cooked more with natural and unprocessed ingredients. I slowly fell in love with how good it made me feel.
