Orange juice is the most popular fruit juice worldwide and is a known breakfast staple.
Did you know there is approximately 110 calories and 25g of sugar in a 250ml glass of pure orange juice and less than a gram of fibre! Whereas one medium Orange fruit contains just half the calories of that at 60 calories and around 14g of sugar and around 3-4g fibre!
Opt to have the whole fruit rather than the juice, it is more filling than the juice and lower in calorie and contains more fibre.
Juices can easily contribute to excess calorie intake if not careful. One to be aware for the children too!
🤔Πότε είναι η ιδανική ώρα για να πιεις ένα φρέσκο χυμό πορτοκάλι; Σύμφωνα με νέα μελέτη οι ειδικοί τονίζουν ότι το πρωί είναι η καλύτερη ώρα γιατί ένα ποτήρι χυμό από πορτοκάλι ξυπνάει το μυαλό αυξάνοντας την πνευματική εγρήγορση και την ικανότητα συγκέντρωσης και της προσοχής. Φυσικά μην ξεχνάμε ότι προμηθεύει τον οργανισμό μας με σχεδόν το 100% της συνιστώμενης ημερήσιας πρόσληψης σε βιταμίνη C! .
Monica is in the local convenience shop. She seeks a palatable beverage. She spots an assortment of bottled drinks and gravitates towards them in the hope of finding something ‘healthy’ for her fat loss goal. Her eyes intensely scroll through the bottles. 7 up - no. Mountain Dew - no. Coca-Cola - fuck no. Innocent orange - n...wait... 100% orange juice that’s innocent? Monica purchases the 500ml bottle and consumes it swiftly. She feels good about herself and begins walking north on the Main Street.
800 yards north in an unpopulated dustbin alley, Peter has just purchased 6 oranges. He looks shifty. He’s wearing a cap. He has a rucksack. He looks over his shoulder and produces a sharp knife. He aggressively removes the oranges from his rucksack and begins mercilessly slicing into them. With juice cascading down his trembling hands he begins emphatically consuming the oranges with tremendous might. -
Ten minutes later, Monica spots an industrial sized bin near an alley. As she lifts the lid on the bin she sees what she described later that day to her friends as; “an orange mouthed man sitting in a beanbag of orange peel”... “Who the fuck eats that many oranges... in an alley” is the judgmental punchline of her tale of visual lunacy.
Yet despite the consummate normality of Monica’s consumption and ridiculous absurdity of Peter’s, they both replicated eachother’s nutrition during those 10 minutes. In fact, Peter consumed more fibre. -
A 500ml bottle of innocent orange juice contains 190 calories, 39g of sugar and is easy to consume in a short time. Six oranges are nutritionally identical. Yet one is normal and the other is a ridiculous proposition that nobody (except hypothetical Peter) dreams of. -
Of course, consumption of the innocent juice or the oranges may fit one’s nutritional goal. But despite appealing labels, clever marketing and my tale above; the message here is to simply be aware of what you are about to consume 🙂. -
Best OJ is Here!! -🍊Harvest right on its peek from my cousin’s garden.
California is called the land of orange.
The balance of the sweetness and sourness is on point, truly the taste of sunshine.
Existing in this world has given us the opportunity to appreciate how amazing the nature is. #respectlife#californiaorange#orangejuice#homegrown#organic#nopesticides
