Ways You Can Bring The Farm To Your Table

 Providing your family with farm fresh food options is a great way to eat healthy together and enjoy a good meal around the table!  When you think of farm fresh foods, which foods in particular come to mind?  When I think farm fresh I think fruit juices, fresh eggs (cage free are my favorite!), and an abundance of options that include fresh vegetables and fruits. 

Tropicana helps take care of the juice portion of your farm fresh options with their 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice.  Each bottle of Tropicana 100% Pure Florida Orange Juice is handled with care, starting from the grove.  Why are Florida oranges the preferred oranges for Tropicana premium juices?  The answer is because the different soil and microclimates in Florida help the fruit reach it's maturity peak at different times, allowing ripe fruit to harvest throughout the entire growing season!

Fun Fact:  Oranges have been grown in Florida since the 1560's. That's approximately 147 years before any  other state! 

 Of course our family's favorite time to enjoy a nice cold class of Tropicana orange juice is at breakfast!  It's a great way to start the day and a good dose of Vitamin C to boost your immune system.  Why not try incorporating Tropicana orange juice into a fun and healthy recipe like the one below for the whole family?
