My Love Affair With Pure Cranberry Juice

cranberry_lime_sparkle_blog

I am a water drinker…no pop, juice and for right now have abstained Spirits (ya I know boring but don’t worry it will creep back into my life)….soooooo with the advice from someone über smart (Darlene from http://www.naturalflowtohealth.ca/en/) she gave me an awesome idea of a drink that looks like a “party drink”, tastes light & refreshing and aids your “Junk” health.     If you are going for a healthy drink you need to use pure cranberry, the best brand is Lakewood. It is costly at 10.00 a bottle (Superstore Health section) but I cut it with Natural Lime Flavored Perrier Sparkling water which makes it tastes yummo & makes the bottle last a lot longer. Lakewood Cranberry is  75 cal for 8 oz, I use half of that & top up with Perrier. Healthy, yummy & hardly any calories….yes maam! These are some of the benefits of drinking PURE cranberry juice:

Essential Micro-Nutrients
– Support Urinary Tract Health
· Valuable Polyphenols and Anthocyanins(Polyphenols and a subcategory called anthocyanins are phytonutrients that have been studied for their potential health effects, including antioxidant, anticancer and antinflammatory benefits)
· Excellent Source of Vitamins K and Natural Anti-Oxidant Vitamins C & E
· Natural Source Minerals Help Replace Vital Body Electrolytes and Support Metabolism
· Help Maintain Normal Cholesterol Levels and Support the Immune System

    You can also use Pure Pineapple juice (great for digestion), or for other flavors pure Pear juice, Pomegranate, Blueberry etc. The Juice Companies are R.W. Knudsens or Lakewood, the are “Pure” Organic juices. Yum!!
