I decided to share a WFMW tip that follows along with my previous healthier-living posts. Probably nothing new to most of you budget-minded moms!
Because I am purchasing as much organic products as possible for our budget, I have to think of ways to make those food products last as long as possible. Plus, until recently, my children have only known juice (and most other drinks other than milk!) in their watered-down version. It was just "normal" to them.
Once a month, I usually purchase 2 types of juice. Typically, I choose an orange, apple, or grape juice; each coming in about a 1 quart container. Once home, I pour the juice into a 4 quart pitcher and fill the container with water. I have a pitcher with a sifter-type handle which mixes the juice if it settles. Then, I will refill the smaller container for everyday use; refilling as needed until we have used all the "juice" in the larger pitcher.
To an adult, it does taste diluted. To a kid, just right!
And just think of all the calories and sugar grams you will be saving with each serving!!
