Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken Tacos & Pineapple Orange Salsa

I love tacos. My Father in law jokes that he has never met such a white Mexcian because my husband and I LOVE Mexican. It’s our favorite. I decided we could put a spin on our love for Mexican food and branch out and experiment with other flavors. These slow cooker Hawaiian Chicken Tacos are fabulous and the Pineapple Orange Salsa on top just takes the cake!

5 Amazing Benefits Of Orange Juice

I’m always looking for ways we can incorporate extra servings of fruits and vegetables in our diets. We don’t ever seem to eat enough each day and sneaking them into our meals is a great way to add them to our diet. Did you know that 100% Florida Orange Juice has five amazing benefits? There is good reason to start your day AND end your day with a glass of 100% Florida orange juice.


Inside each glass of 100% Florida Orange Juice you will find an “Amazing 5” benefits!

  1. The delicious taste that’s both refreshing and “amazing” is the most obvious! I love starting my day with a glass of 100% Florida orange juice!
  2. 100% Florida orange juice has no added sugar which means I’m not serving up a glass of sugar loaded OJ to my kids each morning.
  3. 8 ounces of 100% Florida Orange Juice is an excellent source of vitamin C which is important in the production of collagen which is a component of bones, gums and cartilage!
  4. It’s a good source of potassium which is important for muscle function, nerve transmission, and helps maintain the body’s fluid, electrolyte and pH balance.
  5. You’ll also get a great source of folate in your 100% Florida orange juice which is a water soluble B vitamin that is essential for cell division and healthy red blood cells.

5 Benefits To Starting Your Day With Florida Orange Juice

These are all great reasons to incorporate 100% Florida orange juice into your day! I love to start my day out with toast, a piece of fruit and a glass of 100% Florida orange juice. My kids love their cereal and by serving it alongside a glass of Florida orange juice I know I am helping them reach their daily servings of fruit. Most families do not get the necessary servings of fruits and vegetables in their diets. Start the New Year off right by serving 100% Florida orange juice and incorporating it into your meals!
