I hope it's fresh squeezed OJ. Store bought in cartons/bottles is pasteurized and have too much sugar, almost at the level of a soda because much of the skin (not peel) has been removed and it breaks down as simple sugar fructose.

Make sure it's fresh squeeze only, but whole oranges are better with satiation. I would also recommend a blender over a juicer because the skin is not removed with a blender.

Definitely no sodas of any kind and only fresh squeezed OJ, and no more than a glass a day. There's a reason they say "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", because too many spike your glycemic levels. Same with oranges or any other "sugary" fruit.

Sodas are some of the worst things you can put in your body, period.

100% agree with this.
All store bought juices are the devils drink as well.
I do buy a ‘green juice’ which is a blend of freshly squeezed celery, mint, spinach, OJ. Once a week or so.
Otherwise it’s no bother to hand squeeze a couple of oranges which is about 200ml of juice. More than enough.

I also have a juicer which we use to make fresh juice for the family using mixes of carrots, apples, oranges, celery, pineapple and anything else that’s at hand.

Don't forget I was born in Greece and in our house no process food has place of any kind. Yes I do have all the necessary tools for fresh food and OJ etc.......

Thanks for all the advice

Here in the UK, where most fruits and other items are imported, people don't really know that all of them are refrigerated during transportation and the taste is not the same as in the hot Med countries. Today my wife and I had a long discussion.... about it! and we both agreed that the taste is not the same as in Spain and Greece.

Not a lot we can do and when air travel starts.... I am going to book a holiday to Greece......

I like juicing my own oranges too. Moulinex do a very simple but rather good electric juicer.



You dont see them so much in the UK. I got mine in France for maybe 20 Euros.
