Healthy Juice with Tropicana Essentials
I have long been a lover of juice. Juices are such a convenient and yummy way of getting in our daily requirement of fruits and vegetables. My love affair with juice started when I decided to get ‘healthy’ by replacing cola with juice, I did miss the fizz but I made it work.
However, the more I delved deeper into the topic of health I realised that packaged fruit juices were loaded with added sugar and they were not much healthier than the colas I loved.
So I was back to square one, I needed a replacement for the sugar rich fruit juices, a replacement that would be actually healthy. In came vegetable juices with just a dash of fruits to make them delicious without compromising on the ‘healthy’ tag. Vegetable juices have now become an essential part of my breakfast, I try and never miss it. Here is a recipe I shared earlier.
However, it isn’t always convenient and practical for me to juice my veggies – at times I barely have a chance to put on my shoes while running out the door and at times I am missing a fridge full of veggies. On days like these I have no choice but to reach out for unhealthier options and that is when I feel low, tired and lacklustre – all signs of deficiencies when we do not get our daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables.
Experts recommend 5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily and research shows that on an average we consume 3.5 servings, leaving a deficiency of 1.5 servings of fruits and vegetables.
Tropicana Essentials Juice Range
Clearly there was a gap, a nutritional gap that needed to be filled – note the operative word here is ‘WAS’, because Tropicana has just launched their essentials series with 2 variants – the fruits and veggies variant and the iron variant.
I personally have only tried the fruits and veggies one and have absolutely loved it. One pack of juice takes care of 1 serving each of fruits and vegetables, it is fortified with vitamins A and C, because it is tetra packed I can carry it in my bag without having to carry a fridge along and best of all it has NO ADDED SUGAR, the sugar in it comes from fruit.
Thank God for a more convenient and healthier option to deal with the sweltering tropical heat. Here is where you can get your hands on the new Tropicana Essentials Range.
