Cuties, good juice that is good for you

All juice together text edited

I tweeted that I could not get enough of Cuties Juice. Did you even know they made juice? I didn’t until recently! Yes, Cuties Juice is brought to you by the same family farmers that bring you the goodness of Cuties tangerines. All of their Clementines, Mandarins, and Oranges are grown in the California sunshine, picked squeezed and bottled in the eco-friendly juice plant, fresh for you! I was surprised and grateful when the company sent me some coupons to try more Cuties Juice for myself – since the juice is squeezed fresh, I had to go directly to the store to get it. Below is my review of Cuties, good juice that is good for you.

I found Cuties in my area at Target and not the regular grocery store. Cuties has a store locator on their website, so I recommend you check it out so you can find out where to get Cuties near you! With my coupons, I got several kinds of Cuties, including juice and smoothies. I love that Cuties has such a wide variety of juices and smoothies to choose from and the 8 oz sizes are perfect for on-the-go snacking or to pack for lunch. Of the juice, my favorite is the Tangerine-Orange-Mango blend – it is slightly, but not overpoweringly sweet, and tastes like a tropical vacation in a bottle. If you don’t know where to start, try the 100% Tangerine juice. It is only 100 calories for an 8 oz serving and contains no additives or artificial ingredients.

I did not like the smoothies as much as the juice, but I am particular about smoothies. They have to be ice cold and I prefer them directly out of the blender, however, the smoothies would be great in the morning with breakfast because they pack a nutritional punch that is hard to find in such a small package. My favorite was the Tangerine and Blueberry Smoothie. In just one 8 oz bottle are 2 1/2 Cuties, 15 blueberries and 1/2 a peach. I actually do not like to eat blueberries because I don’t like the texture, but I know they have health benefits, including vital antioxidants, that you can’t find in many other foods. I like the taste of this smoothie a lot!

Cuties 100% Tangerine Juice is always squeezed from FRESH Clementine and Mandarin fruit, never from concentrate. The only sugar in Cuties Juice comes from the fruit itself, unlike some other brands of juice, which is why I really try to limit the amount of juice I drink. With Cuties Juice there is no added sugar, no refined sugar and no artificial sweeteners. It’s all real and all natural and that’s good for you! All of the juices and smoothies have 150 % Daily Value of Vitamin C per 8 oz serving, which offers a quick boost to the immune system. They provide 1 or 2 grams of protein per serving and are packed full of antioxidants.

In addition, the GoGoGreen Tangerine and Kiwi Smoothie contains pirulina and Golden Chlorella—two plant (algae) superfoods that provide highly bio-available all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phytonutrients such as the antioxidant beta-carotene, and the important essential fatty acid Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). They are also rich in iron, magnesium, and calcium. As you know, omega fatty acids are important because they regulate cell function, genetic function and have been shown to be beneficial to heart health. You can find out more nutritional information this Smoothie here. While the color may make you hesitate, I found this smoothie to be second in taste to the blueberry. I would purchase it in the larger quantity to get the health benefits as well.

Last, but certainly not least, Cuties Juices are squeezed and bottled in a plant that strives to be energy efficient sustainable and currently Cuties is striving for all of their bottles to be made of 100% Post Consumer recycled material. All of the bottles are and will always be BPA Free.

Be sure to connect with Cuties Juice on Twitter and Facebook and be the first to hear of special offers and promotions. The Twitter feed is a lot of fun!

And, of course, anything Cuties related would not be complete without the Cuties stickers, which they also sent to me. (They played a vital role in my notes of this review).

Thank you to Cuties Juice for supplying me with a generous amount of coupons to purchase Cuties Juice for review on my blog. And, thank you to my sister and her dog, Maddie for helping with the photographs.

What about you? Did you know there was such a thing as Cuties Juice? Have you tried Cuties Juice? If so, which one is your favorite?

Until the next mile marker,


Please note: I was sent several coupons for free 8 oz bottles of juice for this review of Cuties Juice. I was not compensated in any way and was not asked to write a positive review. I simply love juice that tastes good and is good for me, and the opinions expressed in this post are solely my own. 

CeliAct: The #1 Nutritional Supplement Just for People with Celiac Disease

Although millions of dollars are being spent on celiac disease research, the list of sufferers continues to grow and remains only one cure – the gluten-free diet. While I haven’t been officially diagnosed with celiac disease, my doctor has determined that I definitely have intolerance to it. I have been reading a lot about gluten sensitivity and other health concerns that come along with it (systemic inflammation, lactose intolerance, food allergies, etc.) and would not be surprised if the way I have been eating (mainly processed foods, whole grains, sugars, dairy) have impacted my health – or lack thereof recently. I believe most of the food we ingest is poisoning in one way or another and I no longer want to do that to my body. Since September, I have been trying to greatly decrease, if not eliminate these things from my diet:

  • Gluten and it’s relatives (wheat, barley, rye, spelt, quiona, soy, sorghum, brown rice, oats, corn and teff)
  • Poultry (yes, poultry, because chickens ingest massive amounts of corn and are exposed to latex and ingest too many plant oils)
  • Avocados, Bananas, Celery, Figs and Kiwi (all contain a latex-like protein that can aggravate the immune system)
  • Seeds, nuts, chips, flax, soy, chickpeas and humus

But, is gluten-free really enough? Our bodies are also lacking many essential nutrients such as omega 3 (fish oil), calcium, magnesium and vitamins D and B, among others.

Since September, I have been taking so many vitamins it’s upset my stomach, caused unnecessary anxiety (when, where, how much) and become disruptive at times. This isn’t even all I was taking in one day (and it made me crazy, very crazy)-


Needless to say, I was eager and relieved to discover CeliAct from my friend Elle over at Eat Run Sail. CeliAct is a supplement to the gluten-free diet that provides a complete nutritional solution for people with celiac disease. It provides your body with nutrients and compounds you need to stay healthy.

CeliAct bottle

According to a number of recent studies if you have celiac disease and follow a gluten free diet, your need for vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients are significantly higher.

CeliAct provides everything you need in five compnents, including:

  • Digestive Enzyme Support – Assists your intestine by breaking  down food and releasing more vitamins and minerals to reduce the risk of  nutrient deficiencies.
  • Multivitamin / Multiminieral Complex – The intestine of someone with celiac disease doesn’t absorb nutrients as well as a healthy person so it needs things such as Vitamins A, E and K (for immunity, blood clotting and vision); Vitamin C; B-Complex Vitamins; and Folic Acid and B12 (to reduce anemia).
  • Intestinal Healing Blend – With nutrients such as Zinc, which helps your body to patch up holes and gaps in your intestinal linin
  • Probiotic Defense Complex- Helps to toss out bad bacteria, assist in digestion, and lend a much-needed hand to your body’s intestinal healing cells.
  • Bone-Building Formula- People with celiac disease are also at a higher risk for diseases like osteoporosis. This componont strenghtens your bones with nutrients like Calcium, Vitamin D and Magnesium.

For a complete list of nutrients included in this product and all of their benefits, visit here.

And while all of these nutrients are essential, did you know the most common nutrient that people with celiac disease don’t get enough of isn’t iron, calcium, or zinc? It’s fat.

Stop being afraid of fat. You need it. Fat helps to produce new cells, build strong joints, and keep the immune system healthy. Without enough fat you may become underweight, deficient in fat-soluble vitamins, and develop brittle nails and hair.

To make sure you get enough, you can also take CeliAct Fish Oil. It gives you the extra fat that your body needs and is rich in essential Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies show that fish oil accelerates the healing process of the intestine by providing the critical nutrients for intestinal healing. The damage that gluten unleashes on your body results in severe inflammation of the intestines. Unfortunately, inflammation can exist even after you’ve made dietry changes to elminate gluten, which is why you need fish oil.


These two products combined together provide all the multi-vitamins and nutrients you need to not only recover from, but remain healthy after eliminating gluten from your life.

They are slightly expensive, but totally worth it in my opinion (I was spending almost double this on all the pills I was taking before) – and if you think of the health benefits, I would rather pay for wellness than to be sick all the time. I’ve traded in all of my other vitamins for this package. This is for a month supply-


Since I have been taking vitamins I feel healthier, more energized and sleep better at night. And, best of all, I am relieved to be taking this, instead of what I was taking before:

Celiact pills

I believe we must make sure our bodies are getting all of the nutrients we need (even if we must take a pill), but I have said goodbye to the days of owning my own pharmacy!

no more pharmacy

CeliAct is a nutritional supplement specifically for people with celiac disease. Read more at the CeliAct Blog and connect with CeliAct on Facebook and Twitter. They have a fantastic website with a lot of information for people with celiac diseae. I found it very informative and plan to go back to it as a resource from now on.

Until the next mile marker,
