Trying to “SQUEEZE” More O.J. Into My Day!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Florida Orange Juice. All opinions are 100% mine.
Personally I don’t know many people that have to be ENCOURAGED to drink Orange Juice (no one in OUR family at least!) But I admit, I am guilty of reaching for soda more than I should, especially when things get busy and hectic around here!

So these little tidbits from Florida Orange Juice were a nice little reminder for me to reach more often for that jug of O.J. instead of that can of Diet Coke. :-)

Did you know potassium and folate and vitamin C are three nutrients that we regularly don’t consume enough of in the U.S.? (Shame on us!)
One 8‐ounce serving of 100% OJ is a good source of all three!

How about this….did you know one 8-ounce glass of 100% OJ provides HALF of the USDA-recommended daily fruit intake for most adults??? And here I am always feeling SO guilty about not getting enough fruit in my diet.  Two glasses a day and I’m good to go! :-)

Kathleen Zelman, MPH, RD, LD, is a nutritionist, dietitian, and writer who currently serves as director of nutrition for WebMD. She has a few really good tips, not only for getting more OJ into our diets….but how to eat healthier in general.

To get a JUMPSTART on your morning…make sure your breakfast includes protein, fruit and nutrient-dense carbs.

  • An easy way to do this is to blend your favorite fruit (I prefer mine frozen, of course) with 100% Florida OJ and low-fat yogurt!
  • Or…I love this idea!…..jazz up your pancakes by substituting 100% Florida OJ for water in your batter! I have actually tried this with a little cinnamon and it’s really delicious! Gives ordinary pancakes a little zing. :-)

Oh wow….now I’m hungry for pancakes!  Is 11:36am on a weekday morning too late to make pancakes????

      nope, no ads here. If you don’t have malwarebytes I highly recommend it – I got it because Blizzard recommended it when my kids were using my computer for games before they moved out. It’s a free program but very good at finding and removing malware.
