We all have daily rituals of activities that we know are good for our overall well-being, right? We floss and brush our teeth, eat a healthy breakfast, make sure we have enough hours of sleep to face the day, eat a balanced healthy diet, exercise, make time for ourselves… wait… you aren’t doing all of those things every single day? Me neither. So why is it so tough to do the things that are so good for us?
My husband is faithful in taking his first-thing-in-the-morning swig of apple cider vinegar. Spend just one minute googling the benefits of ACV and you will quickly be convinced that you need it in your life.
I am hit-and-miss when it comes to taking my morning ACV. Mostly because I am running to get everything else done in time so I can get out the door and to work on time. I mean well and yet.
Are you having trouble getting your daily intake of ACV?
One time that makes a habit work best is preparation. You know how it goes. If we wash and cut up the vegetables ahead of time, we are more likely to consume. If we plan out our weekly meals and have them ready to go in the slow cooker or thawed out when we get home at night, we are more likely to consume.
This easy recipe is perfect for making the evening before and placing in your refrigerator so all you have to do is grab one on your way out the door. It is loaded with DeNigris’s unfiltered and unpasteurized non-GMO organic apple cider vinegar, all-natural cranberry juice, lemon, and stevia to balance it all out into a refreshingly delightful morning drink.
It will be a great start to your day!
