Sugar Free Orange Juice
Posted 07 August 2007 - 07:24 PM
I adore orange juice, but have not had any in ages, all seem so high in sugar.
Is there a sugar free or low sugar OJ?? or is such a beast impossible?

You don't need to buy special orange juice. Just buy and dilute your own, adding your own sweetener according to taste.

The no juice thing is the killer for me. I can't enjoy breakfast on weekends without some kind of juice. I might try low sugar cranberry, but I will miss my tropicana so much.
I always offset my juice with a slow acting protein and/or fat.

-toast & OJ == bad
Virginia Woolf: “Consider how common illness is, how tremendous the spiritual change that it brings, how astonishing, when the lights of health go down, the undiscovered countries that are then disclosed, what wastes and deserts of the soul a slight attack of influenza brings to view, what precipices and lawns sprinkled with bright flowers a little rise of temperature reveals, what ancient and obdurate oaks are uprooted in us by the act of sickness, how we go down in the pit of death and feel the waters of annihilation close above our heads and wake thinking to find ourselves in the presence of the angels and the harpers when we have a tooth out and come to the surface in the dentist's arm-chair and confuse his "Rinse the mouth-rinse the mouth" with the greeting of the Deity stooping from the floor of Heaven to welcome us - when we think of this, as we are so frequently forced to think of it, it becomes strange indeed that illness has not taken its place with love and battle and jealousy among the prime themes of literature”
