If you’re like me, as soon as you get the sniffles you reach for a great big glass of orange juice. And if you’re like me, you’ve been sick enough time that you’re tired of orange juice.

Did you know that most orange juice you buy at the store has TONS of added sugar? Sugar promotes congestion and can supress your immune system, making you feel even worse, longer. Ick!

So you’re sick of orange juice that you know is bad for you anyway, so what do you do? You need that vitamin C!

Eat some strawberries!

Strawberries are high in vitamin C. One serving (about a cup) of strawberries has as much vitamin C as an orange, and boy does it taste good!

So next time you start feeling your throat itch and your nose get stuffy, reach for the strawberries. Or get colorful with your juicer and make some fresh, delicious strawberry-orange juice!
