Juice-licious

One of the few good things about living in the tropics is you're blessed with a lot of different varieties of fresh fruits. You can find banana's in all kinds of shapes and sized which are consumed in different ways: raw, deep fried, baked in pastry, etc. And then there are other local specialties such as mangosteen, rambutans, passion fruits, snake fruits, papaya, mangoes, star fruits and guavas just to mention a few. If you're like me, you'll eat most of them within a few days of your purchase, no matter how many you've bought. I could eat a lot of fruits every day - apples, strawberries, pineapples, water melon, mangoes. I have always been very health conscious and was lucky I live in a place where fresh produce is always available. Breakfast is always started with a glass of fresh vegetable / fruit juice which I normally prepared the night before that. And because of my endo problem, I was also advised to add more beans on my daily intake and my favorite is steamed edamame beans.

elyani, do you drink these on the daily basis? do you juice them yourself?

i am currently drinking green juice that is nutritionally densed everyday. i don't mind adding to my diet orange drink of yours.

Yes, Belle...I drink them everyday. I always make them from scratch using ripe, in-season fruit so you don't have to add sugar.
