Today we have a guest post from Jessica of Natural Health and Prevention on the wonders of apple cider vinegar. ACV is a remedy I rely on regularly and I’m thrilled for Cooking Traditional Foods to have a post on the subject. Here’s Jessica!
One of my favorite uses for raw apple cider vinegar is in salad dressings, like my Cultured Honey Mustard Dressing, and another is using it to heal or prevent a sore throat in my Sore Throat Gargle. But recently, I have been using it as a drink before meals to help with digestion, as my digestive system was recently altered due to some antibiotics I was given during my D&C. The raw apple cider vinegar has helped me considerably and I wanted to pass along some healing benefits of raw apple cider vinegar. Read More→
I had a tough weekend. I only wound up eating one meal both days this weekend, as I got hit with a virus in the middle of the night on Friday night. I don’t believe it was detox, since I had been eating similarly for a while, just not formally tracking it. And I didn’t have a lot of my normal detox symptoms, either.
So on Saturday I had a turkey burger patty with a big green salad at dinner, and on Sunday I had my veggie-heavy sloppy joes for lunch. Both days, I met my goal even though I didn’t take in near enough food overall. I was able to drink, so I continued with my nettle and RRL tea.
Today is day one of the challenge. The good news is that I ate plenty of veggies with pate today. The bad news is that It’s got me so full of energy that I might scrub kitchen cabinets and mop floors until midnight. Maybe that’s good news after all. 😉 Liver always gives me a big energy boost.
I made a double batch and froze plenty, to give us more for later. My little boy (who calls pate ‘bacon dip’) asked if I could serve it again tomorrow with cheese sauce and corn chips. lol! Yes to the cheese, no to the corn chips!
Breakfast: Smoothie with raw egg from my own chickens, a ripe banana, three big handfulls of baby lettuce and homemade almond milk made out of crispy almonds. I put in a scoop of peanut butter as my insurance to see that the kids drink it without argument. They also had some waffles, I just drank extra smoothie.
