When you’re thirsty, a refreshing, fruity beverage often hits the spot. Drink 100 percent juice for the greatest nutritional benefit.

Good examples include pink grapefruit juice and orange juice. Choosing juice for nutrition means reading the label. Check to be sure that the product is 100 percent juice. Read the ingredient list carefully to make sure that juice is one of the first ingredients.

As with most fruits and vegetables, the more colorful the juice, the more nutrients it contains, that may help protect against some cancers, heart disease and other chronic health conditions.
As more and more juices are fortified with calcium, you can double your benefit. But, since juices lack fiber, try to keep your intake to one serving daily.

Please let me know what your favorite juice is. I love carrot juice….yum!

Have a healthy and fit day!
