Just wanted to say that we do something that is refreshing and at the same time very healthy. My husband HATES plain water but has quit drinking caffeinated and heavily sweetened drinks. Someone suggested to us drinking vinegar every day as a health benefit. Vinegar is great for balancing the ph of your blood making you less susceptible to virus/bacteria/illness.
We found it’s also very refreshing. Here’s what we do. Every night before I go to bed, I make up a gallon pitcher of this drink:
1/2 Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 Cup of Honey
Mix in enough water to make 1 gallon and put in fridge
This tastes much like lemonade and has many health benefits.
We drink this throughout the day. It also is a great energy boost when working in the heat of summer. Hubby has lost 30 pounds since we started drinking this instead of kool-aid and sodas. It also regulates your appetite so if your body isn’t really hungry you don’t have the cravings and if you have a weak appetite and aren’t getting enough calories, it will increase your appetite.
The health benefits of vinegar are endless, if you’ve ever done any research on this, there are a lot of ways you can take this drink. I even like it without the honey/sweetener.
I hope this will be a helpful and healthful suggestion for some. It works great for us.
