Growing up I always remember coming down for breakfast in the morning to the sight of an empty glass of my Mom’s Apple Cider Vinegar.
At the time I couldn’t get within a couple of feet from that abandoned glass without gagging, as the strong smell of vinegar was overpowering for my young senses J

Fast forward 15 years and here I am regularly drinking ACV, and actually enjoying it. The key is to add about a tablespoon to a cup of water and dilute it so that your tastebuds have some time to adapt. I like to keep a bottle at work and pour a glass after lunch to sip on throughout the afternoon. At home I have just started using it in salad dressing (in place of balsamic vinegar)... and am really not noticing much of a difference tastewise.

Here are the Top 20 Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar:
- Wards of flu
- Dissolves kidney stones
- Detoxifies the body
- Regulates pH in the body
- Aids with nausea
- Relieves heartburn

- Get rid of buildup on scalp
