Fresh squeezed orange has all the right ingredients—just orange juice. Store-bought orange juice has unnecessary calories and sugar and is not as rich in vitamins as fresh-squeezed orange juice. One woman who follows me told me she accidentally lost 10 pounds when she stopped drinking orange juice from the carton.
You’ll taste and feel the difference when you trade in the carton of orange juice for fresh squeezed. Use a handheld or stand juicer to produce fresh orange juice for your family in seconds.
Display your oranges on the counter in a basket like this one from the Italian designer Alessi. Filled with fresh oranges, it will brighten up your kitchen decor and remind you to use oranges for an easy dinner idea.
A stand juicer makes juicing a breeze, and cleanup is easy. Children can use this and lend a hand in the kitchen. I love the look and feel of a stand juicer, but you may prefer a smaller electric model that you can tuck away in the cabinet.
Get more out of your oranges by using them to help you figure out what’s for dinner by adding a no-cook dessert course to your family dinner.
Or oranges, raspberries, and chocolate for a fresh and mouthwatering dish.
The addition of a dessert course to your dinner takes minutes to make and helps you conveniently serve enough food to satisfy everyone and delight them.

"Finding you [has] truly inspired me to cook more and focus on quality ingredients. Strengthening my kitchen intuition has been key, it's how I know to roll leftovers into something new or I can see what I bought and come up with creative solutions.
As a family, we always valued sitting down together for dinner but now it's done with so much less stress. I can be done with work and still make easy meals . . . amazing quality meals that are thrown together in a short time and we get to enjoy each other!"
“Your suggestions are so priceless! Thank you for such valuable content. My family is closer than ever, thanks to you!”

"We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
“I don't know if I told you, but I accidentally lost about 8 lbs after cutting out most semi-processed foods!"
