I’m usually not. I’ve never done a real diet, and I’ve got a bad sweet tooth.
But, I can get down with healthy drinks and eats that are accessible and cheap.
I’m also a big fan of vinegar-based things. From vinaigrettes to kombucha to shrubs, I love tastes with a little twang.
If you’re like me, then you might be interested in this (new to me) practice of drinking Bragg apple cider vinegar. This post is not sponsored by Bragg’s, but I recently bought some and then heard from my mother-in-law about how she drinks a teaspoon or so in a glass of water in the morning.
So, I’ve been giving it a shot this week, and I’m really enjoying a tsp. of Bragg’s in my morning water with some fresh mint.
Here’s what I’ve found:
- The taste isn’t too bad, kind of just like intense lemon water.
- It seems to help me stay full longer between breakfast and lunch. I don’t have as many 10:30 or 11 a.m. cravings.
- It seems to help me stay alert and awake. I think I feel more refreshed because of it.
- It’s effects are similar to kombucha, but it’s much cheaper.
It hasn’t been a scientific experiment, but I do think I will keep exploring the benefits of this daily practice. I’ll keep you updated!
