Weight Loss Tonic

I am not trying to lose weight right now, but it never hurts to drop a few pounds here and there.  I have been reading about the benefits of regular apple cider consumption all over the place, but can never motivate myself to take shots of the stuff.  Instead the bottle of Braggs just sits in a forlorn corner of my fridge, never to be consumed.
 Until now.  I was running through Earthfare the other day and saw an apple cider vinegar drink over by the Kombucha.  It was delicious!  And expensive.  So I decided to make my own.

  • 5 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (with the "mother")
  • 4  Tablespoon Apple Juice (look for organic, straight non-sweetened juice, since we are trying to be healthful here)
  • 6 cups Water
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 4 packets Truvia
Mix it all together and chill in the fridge.  If it is still too sour, add more apple juice or sweetener.  You can use honey if you like.

This makes a big pitcherful, one which I am trying to consume everyday.
We shall see if the purported weight loss benefits are a myth or not, but at least I will be getting more water in.  Cheers!


  1. this is interesting, i was just reading that drinking 1 TB of apple cidar mixed in one cup of water before meals helps your body better digest and break down the protien and calcium in your food, but i hadnt heard about the weight loss piece

  2. Mmm ACV! I drink a big glass (in a tumbler like yours) every morning before breakfast. After a while you get used to it - I drink it plain - just water and vinegar.
