Health Benefits of Florida Orange Juice
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Florida Orange Juice for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you a morning person? Do you eat breakfast everyday? I noticed when I stopped skipping breakfast, and made it my most important meal of the day, I became more of a "morning person". Florida Orange Juice in the morning can energize and prepare you for a busy day. Don't get me wrong, I still want my 1 cup of coffee in the morning with breakfast, but I am going to start drinking more orange juice in the morning. I challenge those folks who claim they are not "morning people" to start drinking orange juice at the start of every day, to see if it improves your morning routine.
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.
