Morning Sunshine


Hello Friends,

I am here with your “Morning Sunshine”. This is something that most of my mornings these days start with. I am calling it “Morning Sunshine”. It is the simplest juice once can make and it definitely is a great start for your day, not sugary at all.

This juice (it will be a 18-20 oz. depending on how much juice your orange has) has 181 calories in total. Here is the breakup:
9 calories from fat
255 mg sodium
1096 mg of potassium
35 g of carbohydrate
3 g fiber
3.4 g of protein
10% of daily Vitamin A
307% of daily Vitamin C
9% of daily Calcium
7% of daily Iron
20% of daily Thiamin
12% of daily Riboflavin
6% of daily Niacin
9% of daily Vitamin B6
9% of daily Phosphorus
10% of daily Copper
3% of daily Selenium
22% of daily Magnesium
3% of daily Zinc

Whew!!! I am exhausted just writing it all down, but boy what a good list. What do you say? 

Do you agree it is a great start?

So, why delay, here is the simple recipe and pic.

Morning Sunshine


Ingredients
Oranges – 2 medium sized (it comes to about 1 cup of juice)
Fresh Coconut Water – 1.5 cups (you can used can ones too, but make sure the ingredients only say coconut water and no additives)
Preparation
  • Juice Oranges and mix the juice with coconut water. Stir and Enjoy!!!

Serving
Serve it chilled or at room temperature. You can keep it in fridge up-to-a-day, but as always fresh is the best. I usually eat this with my morning Banana and that is a great breakfast to begin your day with. It has Carbohydrate, Protein and Fat, what else do we need, right? :)

This is my contribution to Healthy Me & Healthy US event that I am hosting this month.


That’s all for now. Take care till next post.
