Do you get enough vitamin C in your diet? A terrific way to get more vitamin C is to add more citrus fruits into your diet and what’s more citrus-y than Florida Orange Juice?
I’m a big proponent of a morning routine–mine consists of exercise, prayer time, breakfast, starting a load of laundry and doing a little dinner prep. Doing the same things in the same order every morning helps me to stay on track.
You can add orange juice to your morning routine by making a delicious smoothie like the Mango Orange Smoothie (from my new e-book Summer Sanity: A Mom’s Guide To A Great Summer), or you can simply drink a glass with some scrambled eggs.
We don’t buy a lot of juice at our house, but if there’s a great sale I sometimes buy a carton to make homemade popsicles for the kids–yum! Frozen juice pops make a cool treat on a hot summer day, and a much healthier alternative to those artificially colored freezer pops that come in a pack of 50!
Did you know that 100% Florida Orange Juice not only has lots of vitamin C, but potassium and folate as well? Folate is especially necessary for pregant women. An 8 ounce glass of orange is more nutrient dense than most other fruit juices and that same 8 ounce glass contains half of your recommended fruit intake according to the USDA.
Orange juice is also a great pick me up during the day. Drink a glass and munch on a handful of nuts for a nutritious and healthy snack.
