Daily Rituals That Bring My Family Together

Getting ready for school and work is a fast paced and loud activity in my house filled with sounds like stomping feet, groans, and shouts for lost shoes, backpacks, and breakfast. 

As we are all scattered in different directions around the house, the one thing that brings us all together is breakfast.  I can’t say that we are always sitting at the table, but we are at least all gathered in the kitchen eating and sharing about the hopes for the day. 

Everyone has a job to do.   One child is in charge of getting the yogurts out of the refrigerator, the other is in charge of choosing the breakfast for the day, while my husband and I put it all together. 

Knowing that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we like to make healthy and delicious breakfast choices to start our day.  (Emphasis on delicious!)  Some of our favorites include pancakes, waffles, muffins, cereals, yogurts, milk and orange juice

Living in South Florida, we are a bit snobby about our choice in orange juice.  When we can’t squeeze the oranges ourselves, we head to the grocery store.  
Did you know that Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% Pure Florida Orange JuiceTropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year, mainly from central and southern Florida.  When we think oranges, we think of Florida.  So what better brand to purchase than one that uses PURE Florida orange juice

An orange grove in Florida that provides delicious oranges to Tropicana.
Tropicana is committed to using the best fruit to give you the great tasting juice you love and the nutrition your body needs. Each 59oz container of Tropicana Pure Premium® has 16 fresh-picked Florida oranges squeezed into it and an 8oz glass gives you 100% vitamin C to help you maintain a healthy immune system.  It’s the first thing I grab when I feel a little under the weather.
