As you may be aware, I’m a health and fitness freak.
Though my FB and Instagram timeline is flooded with images of sinful, delicious food, I actually consume little of those since I make it a point to share the portions when I dine out.
I live by the mantra of “Stop when you are not hungry, not when you are full“.
My daily diet consist mostly of vegetables and meat, is low in sugar and even lower in carbohydrates.
I do however, allow myself fresh fruits for fibres and for vitamins.
Sometimes I beat that craving for something sweet by consuming a fruit instead. Fruits or chocolate? Fruits of course.
Fruits or candy? Fruits again.
Fruits or cake? Ok, that’s a tough one, even for me.
But if you are watching your calories, grab that fruit instead!
It is best to eat whole fruits but drinking your fruits isn’t all that bad if you make smart choices.
Always, always seek the no sugar added variety if you have to buy ready packed juices.
Read the labels. The ingredient list should preferably contain only the juice that you buying that pack for. No sucrose, fructose, corn syrup or anything of that sort.
The latest juice pack I’m eyeing to add to my grocery list is Tropicana 100% Orange Juice.
The package claims each litre of juice is made with 16 freshly picked oranges**. These oranges had soaked up 1,000 hours of sunshine before being picked, and this sunlight has contributed contributing to its natural sweetness.
Gosh, RM6.99 can’t buy you 16 oranges even from the wholesale market at Selayang!
Sounds too good to be true?
Well, stay tuned as I got myself a few packs and I’ll be sharing my thoughts soon about its taste!
Another newly launched item is Tropicana Delight (apple or orange) which is a premium fruit drink containing real fruit juice and no added preservatives. You might want to grab both to decide which is preferred.
