Don’t just drink your fruit, eat it

It’s tempting to think we’re being healthy by drinking our oranges and sipping our apples, but the truth is – most fruit juice is full of sugar.

Today is your chance to challenge yourself to replace juice with the real thing.

Whether it’s running down to the store and grabbing a real orange instead of orange juice or mapping out tomorrow’s breakfast tonight, do one thing today that can start the habit of chewing – not sipping – your fruits and vegetables.

Keep in mind: fruit juice contains little fiber, one of the most important benefits of real fruit and the thing that can reduce risk of heart disease, diabetes, and even constipation.
