Angie’s Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Angie's Orange Juice

What I feel most proud of this fresh juice, is that I can save a lot of money by buying 5 oranges for $1.00 at the Fresh Market. Of course, I buy about 20 oranges for $4 bucks and it last’s me one whole week! I used to be discouraged by the price of a 6 oz. cup of Orange Juice at any deli or juice bar. Now, with less than $1.00 (4 Oranges) and half of a large grapefruit I can make myself close to 12 oz. of fresh squeezed Orange Juice. As with grapefruits, oranges are loaded with antioxidants and it is the hesperidin flavonoid that stands out for its strong anti-inflammatory properties. One orange contains 62 calories and it contains large amounts of vitamin A, B, C, Folate and potassium. It is also beneficial to hydrate and cleanse the body. I like to share with people how I love to juice oranges every morning and sometimes at night when I get the craving for it, and some of them look at me like I’m crazy, then their response may be “Oh, I’m just so lazy and it takes too much time”. It is then that I look at them like they’re crazy because they have no idea what “the hard work” will do to their health. I mean, does anyone out there enjoy doing good things for themselves?? Or am I the only human kind that enjoys being good to my body? I wonder sometimes, because I find so many people around me who suffer from health issues such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, fatigue, stress and so forth, but when I look in the mirror or visit the doctor I see a perfectly healthy young woman who lives a happy, healthy and fulfilling life. I enjoy sharing things that make me healthy with the hopes to be of a healthy role model to my clients, friends and family so that they too can see a reflection of their true beauty.

Enjoy what you do and live healthy.
