Feeling Good With Florida Orange Juice
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Florida Orange Juice for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
My mornings are hectic, oh who am I kidding, my entire day is hectic. Sometimes it's hard to find time to eat right. That's why I love Florida Orange Juice. It only takes a few seconds to pour a delicious glass of juice. One 8 ounce glass is half of my daily fruit requirement! I have been diligent about having a healthy breakfast, one that includes a glass of Florida Orange Juice, for about two weeks now. It's amazing the difference a great healthy breakfast can make. Not only do I have more energy, but I feel empowered to make other healthy choices throughout my day, as I move to lunch, and dinner. Not to share to much information, but lets just say my digestive track is thankful I am drinking more orange juice too.
Now don't take my word for it, there are experts out there that have the facts behind why 100% Florida
Orange Juice is the perfect start to every day. Nationally recognized nutrition expert, Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, supports drinking Florida Orange Juice everyday and here is why:
One 8-ounce serving of 100% Florida Orange Juice is a good source of potassium, folate, and vitamin C. Nutrients that studies show are under consumed in the United States.
100% Florida Orange Juice is more nutrient dense then other 100% juice drinks on the market. It contains no added sugar or artificial sweeteners, like many fruit juice cocktails, soft drinks, and sports drinks do.
One 8-ounce serving of 100% Florida Orange Juice provides half of your daily recommendation for fruit, based on the USDA's recommendations for adults on a 2,000-calorie diet.
Kathleen M. Zelman MPH, RD has some healthy tips for us all. She suggests we all have a nutritious breakfast that includes fruit, protein, and good nutrient dense carbs. She suggests for a quick smoothie blend your favorite fresh fruit, yogurt, and 100% Florida Orange Juice together. She even suggests substituting 100% Florida Orange Juice for the water in your pancakes. When traveling, or on the go, she suggests the individual servings of 100% Florida Orange Juice as a healthy snack. She suggests for dinner, choose leaner cuts of beef, pork, or poultry to grill, and marinade in 100% Florida Orange Juice for great flavor with out any guilt.
