....Or encourages the sugar blues. One way or another, I can't get around how absolutely delicious this juice is. I bought it willy-nilly the other day when I was thirsty, over-heated and dealing with a very pesty sweet tooth at the grocery store. I know many of you wouldn't dream of drinking juice (what with those extra calories, high glycemic index, spikes in blood sugar, etc.) but I figure since I am not eating donuts or Ben & Jerry's or candy bars, juice once in a while can't be the end of the world.
I happened to pause longer than usual at the refrigerated juice section of the grocery store and found myself salivating at the pictures of tropical fruits and orange juice. I'm not a huge juice fan. I love a good grape juice and once in a while an ice cold apple juice, but I do not keep juice on hand at home. It's more like a treat. I admit, a very sugary, high calorie treat, but for someone steering clear of white refined sugar and corn syrups, this can be extremely satisfying!
I had a nip tonight with dinner, and in this heat it was incredibly refreshing. I highly recommend (for taste, texture and overall satiating factor) Dole Pineapple and Orange juice.
I realize this isn't the healthiest recommendation, but it's what's going on right now in my life. Juice. Amazing.
(Unfortunately, after testing a theory of mine tonight, I learned that nothing really covers up raw garlic breath...)
