I do not want to jinx it, but I feel like things are finally getting back to some sense of normalcy around here. Life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately with the wedding, the holidays, and then of course my round with basal cell carcinoma. Today my first day off of antibiotics since the surgery and I am looking forward to getting back to my keto lifestyle and routine. One of my ways I kinda hit the reset button is with an Apple Cider Vinegar Detox Drink.
There are tons of benefits to drinking Apple Cider Vinegar – everything from weight loss to lowering cholesterol. Since drinking apple cider vinegar also helps lower and regulate blood sugar, it is also a great choice for when you are on the ketogenic diet. The problem is that the flavor of apple cider vinegar… well, it leaves a bit to be desired.
I have the perfect apple cider vinegar drink recipe that I drink morning and night to help curb my appetite and boost my metabolism – plus it tastes great! I use Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar for mine because of the additional benefits of “The Mother.” The “mother” is beneficial bacteria that helps turn apple cider into vinegar. It has been said that the “mother” can help with digestion, immune support and even healthy skin and hair.
One thing that I do recommend about this Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar Drink is that you drink it through a straw. The acidity of the vinegar and the fresh lemon juice can be damaging to tooth enamel over time. I drink 1-2 of these every day and have had great results in how I look and feel.
- 8 oz warm water
- 1 Tbsp Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar with The Mother
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- sweetener of choice to taste
Mix all ingredients together and drink while still warm, stirring as needed.
Note: Best served warm.
