Remember a few weeks ago when I wrote about how much I used lavender and enjoyed it? Well, I’m still on that kick, but lately I’ve found my new obsession to be apple cider vinegar. First off, it’s super cheap (as in under 10 bucks), and secondly, the benefits are stellar.

ACV is having a moment and you’ve probably seen it pop up in wellness-type articles and sites lately. Or, your grandma has been using it for decades. Either way, I’m all about this little wellness miracle right now, and urge you to start using it. Make SURE it’s unfiltered, unpasteurized, and 100% natural, though, or else you might be dealing with preservatives. This is my usual purchase.

Challenge: Incorporate apple cider vinegar into your routine

Personally, I like to take a swig first thing in the morning, or I’ll add it to hot lemon water. It can act as a detoxifier and helps to clear your kidneys. It’s also said to curb hunger or snack urges, but mainly it makes me feel cleared out to start my day.

Adding a shot to sparkling lime water with fresh lemon is a nice alternative for the afternoon. This recipe has a kombucha taste and it’s crazy refreshing. You can add honey or agave if you want to sweeten it up, but I personally like it sour. Either way, I drink it about 20 minutes before eating.

On top of being helpful to cleanse, it’s supposedly good for energy—another wonderful reason to have it in the morning or during your afternoon slump. The potassium and enzymes can help to fend off drowsiness. It’s been the perfect addition to counteract the regular holiday food (aka cookies) and energy dips.

Gargling with ACV can also get rid of bad breath, especially if you don’t like the chemicals in a lot of mouthwashes.

I have read that ACV can upset your stomach and even mess with your teeth’s enamel, so definitely ask your doctor or dentist before trying! Straws can help with the enamel problem. Personally, I don’t find any issues with a small shot 3-4x a week.

Cheers!
