If I’m Going to Give My Daughter Juice It Would From Apple & Eve

Apple and Eve JuicesBefore you have kids, you think that you will never be that parent (helicopter, nutrition obsessed…feel free to fill in the blank). But when you do become one, all those things you thought you weren’t going to do go completely out the window.

Me? I’m a stickler for schedules, if it’s not Disney Junior my daughter is NOT watching it and I am very aware of what she eats and drinks. My husband and I joke all the time that she is the healthiest person in this house and the funny thing is it’s true! I made her baby food from scratch and I even bought those sectioned plates to help me with portion control and make sure she had at least three of the major food groups. As for juice – it wasn’t until very recently that we started buying it and I have strict rules for that too. It has to be 100% fruit juice, no added sugars and no more than a cup a day (seriously!).

Enter Apple & Eve’s Organic Juices.

The Natural Style Apple Juice is made with 100% juice blend of real tarte and sweet apples. In each glass you’ll get two full servings of fruit without the added sugars and when you taste it, you can totally tell. It tastes smooth and fresh like the apples were picked right from the orchard. There’s also no crazy sweet after-taste that makes you want to drink a glass of water afterwards. Since my daughter is like me and doesn’t like super sweet things either, this juice is perfect for her.

The Quenchers are the juice box version of Apple & Eve’s organic goodness, with flavors like Razzberry Apple Splash, Berry Lemonade and Organic Fruit Punch. Like the apple juice, it’s flavored with real fruit and 50% less sugar than the regular fruit drinks. Before my daughter had a chance to inhale them all, I tried the Berry Lemonade. More lemonade then berry, it tastes crisp and refreshing without being crazy sweet.

Bottom Line: If I’m going to give my daughter juice, it’s going to be the healthiest one I can give her. These options from Apple & Eve definitely fit the bill. I would feel good giving my daughter these with her after-school snack.

How about you? Have you tried these juices from Apple & Eve.

And Then There Were Three….

Baby Bump

OMG, there's a munchkin in there!

 I’m pregnant! 

Yeah, I sometimes cannot believe I’m going to be a mom either!  These past three months have been absolutely crazy and this was the reason I’ve been kinda MIA in blog land.  The first trimester is no joke and morning sickness isn’t even the half.  Between the crazy waves of fatigue,the hormonal emotional roller coaster, and my body expanding in ways I didn’t think were humanly possible, keeping up with the blog has been a bit of a challenge.  No matter how much reading you do, there isn’t anything that can prepare you for all the physical and mental changes this exciting time in your life.  There were times where I didn’t feel like blogging, every word looking like poo poo on the screen.  When I wanted to do a beauty post, my face would conveniently break out, taking weeks to clear up.  Then I thought, “How in the world can I achieve the goals that I set for this blog while working full time and being a mom?”  Sure there are plenty of mommy bloggers who have awesome blogs and do a great job everyday but the question was: Could I do it? Those were just some of things I wrestled with and in the end I’ve come to the conclusion that I just don’t know and I’m not going to stress about it.  Three years ago I didn’t think I could even send a tweet let alone blog but when I took it day by day, I learned so much and accomplished more than I hoped for.  So with juggling motherhood and blogging, I’m going to take it day by day and it will work itself out!

As for the blog now, I don’t plan on turning this into a mommy blog though my outfit posts will be affected (for obvious reasons!).  Slowly but surely I’m trying to get my head back into the blogging game because I still love it and miss you guys terribly!  I also need it more than ever to distract me from the constant worrying I’ve been doing lately.  I will say though that from now until the munchkin comes (and probably after!)  I am completely open to having guest bloggers come on over and share their beauty and fashion with you guys.  So if you’re a blogger and want to be a guest, please feel free to email me  at Margaret (at) getfiercestyle (dot) com.  I welcome with you with open arms ( and a growing belly!)
