The Naked Radish Recommendation:  Pyrex Measuring Cups

My grandmother, was a natural, organic, and stupendous Italian cook in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn. She lived to cook, love, and support her family.  As a teenager I would watch her prep and cook and while she was whisking around the kitchen, she would often take a water break and drink from the measuring cup.  As a kid, my eyes went wide with wonder while thinking, “You can’t drink out of a measuring cup because, because, because …. it’s a measuring cup.” When I questioned her, her answer was always the same, “It all goes down the same way.”

Fast forward to today, my measuring cup has been a staple of my health journey and my water drinking program.  With a measuring cup, you will know how much you are drinking as opposed to drinking out of glass and you can ensure you are getting your daily fill of that liquid gold!  

Get yourself a measuring cup to love and hydrate you!

As mundane as measuring cups seem to you, they’re a basic of any cook’s kitchen – and they have more uses than you think (and certainly more than your Home Economics teacher in high school ever taught you).

Take a lesson from our grandmother. She was a natural, organic Italian chef in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn who lived to cook, love, and support her family.  As teenagers, we would watch her prep and cook while she whisked around the kitchen like a pro. When she needed a quick water break, she’d grab a measuring cup and drink straight from it.  Our eyes would grow with shock while thinking, “You can’t drink out of a measuring cup because, because, because …. it’s a measuring cup.” When we finally opened our mouths to ask what why she was drinking out of a measuring cup while there were plenty of glasses available, her answer was always the same, “It all goes down the same way”.

Fast forward to today; our measuring cups are a staple of our health journeys and water drinking programs.  It makes perfect sense – drinking from a measuring cup allows you to know exactly how much water you are drinking and ensures you are getting your daily fill of that liquid gold (can you tell we absolutely love water over here)!

There are also lots of ways these measuring cups can help make your juicing process even easier:

- You can use them to hold your juice while prepping

- You can use them to pour juice into your canning jars

- You can use them to hold produce

- You can use them as a container to catch juice while juicing

They are also great to hold your milk while straining homemade nut milk or any liquid you’re handling.

So get some measuring cups to help you prep and cook in the kitchen, but also get measuring cups to keep you adequately hydrated (thanks for the tip, grandma). It’s simply the best way to drink water!  Fill, drink, repeat.

Cheers to measuring!
