My Guilty Pleasure

Okay so for most people, their guilty pleasure could be anything from golfing to working out to eating ice-cream. Well not mine, I have to admit that I didn't have a little guilty pleasure until I married Kyle. My guilty pleasure is called "Liquid Gold." What is "liquid gold" you ask?? It's only the best stuff on earth! It's orange juice, but not just any orange juice. This orange juice came straight from the orange itself. I have always hated orange juice; the pulp, the taste... ugh gross, but until I juiced my own oranges and tried freshly squeezed orange juice I didn't know what I was missing out on.

Normally Kyle and I don't juice "liquid gold" very often because when there are two of us drinking it we usually have to peel about 8 oranges. So when that rare question is asked in the morning, "Should we juice some oranges?" you know it's going to be a great day!! Kyle is really good about savoring every gulp in his glass, me on the other hand I chug the whole glass faster than I thought I could ever chug something. And then I spend the rest of the meal watching Kyle drink his liquid gold hoping that he offers me some of his, which normally doesn't happen but on rare occasions he shares :) which I don't blame him because this stuff is awesome! To make you readers even more jealous that you don't have any "liquid gold" right now, I decided to take some pictures so you could really see what you're missing out on. You're welcome!

So this is "Liquid Gold" in it's solid state... Ok so here's the oranges :)

Orange Peels

This is the thing that makes the magic happen! Best juicer on earth! 

Oranges all ready! Yay! 

Liquid Gold 

The best part of my day! 

My day could be a little better at this point! 

This, by far, is the worst part of my day! 

I never thought that I would ever write a whole blog on orange juice. Kyle and I love drinking this stuff. The best part is, is that by the end of breakfast I usually can say that I had 4-5 oranges and it's only 10 in the morning! This is an awesome way to get fruits and vegetables into your system without feeling like I just had 5 oranges! If you have a juicer and you don't use it much... SHAME ON YOU! just kidding, but seriously. And if you don't have a juicer... well feast your eyes on those pictures above cause you will never taste anything like it until you get a juicer.


  1. Ashley that looks so good! I think I need a juicer!

  2. It's totally worth the money! We got ours at Costco and it was around 100$. We've definitely gotten our money out of it!

  3. Ya...the only way I like orange juice is Orange Julius, and we all know the wonderful ingredients to that! This make me want to get a juicer!
