TrueBlue Blueberry Juice

There used to be a program on TV in the 1950s called Tightrope. Sometimes I feel that dealing with my diet and health is like walking on a tightrope. I drink a little wine, take a little fish oil, have a cup of green tea. I try to maintain a healthy weight, so I don’t have too many calories, but all the while I want to have stuff that I like, not torture myself with stuff I don’t like.

Recently I came across a great new drink called TrueBlue Blueberry Juice.

If anyone knows me they know I am really big into taking antioxidants, watching calories, avoiding stuff like high fructose corn syrup, etc. TrueBlue Blueberry Juice addresses all of those concerns: blueberry juices are full of antioxidants. They are very healthy, especially when compared to soft drinks and most other juice products. I know I sound like a commercial here, but it’s all true. TrueBlue only has about 110 calories per serving, it contains none of that corn syrup, and is FULL of stuff that is good for you.

Recently I have occasionally tried to add juices to my daily diet. For awhile there I was drinking pomegranate juice. The only problem with that was that it was so sweet that I stopped drinking it, even though it was supposed to be good for me. I found that TrueBlue blueberry juice was not all that sweet, which is a good thing because it made it easier to drink. I personally don’t want a really, really sweet drink.

So, where can I get TrueBlue? Well, I found it at my local grocery store, Kroger. There it was, up there with all the other fruit juices, but of course totally unlike all the other fruit juices. And it was only $3.99 for a half gallon, compared to my pomegranate juice which was six or seven dollars a quart. So TrueBlue is a really great value, with a lot of health benefits concentrated in one glass of juice, and for a very reasonable price. When you visit the TrueBlue website they have a link where you print off free coupons, as well as a link where you can find stores that carry the product. Also there is a wealth of information, including the fact that blueberry juice is supposed to help lower cholesterol and protect against heart disease, which I did not know. That is really cool. You all know how concerned I am about heart disease.

So, I plan to continue drinking TrueBlue for quite awhile. Not only is it good but it’s good for me.
