Studies have proven that carbonated drinks are bad for us, but why do we still drink them? Are the availability and the lay out of supermarkets and gas stations to blame? Or, is it the advertisements that pour down the need to have one?
After being introduced to this new recipe by a friend and learning more about its health benefits, this Apple-cider vinegar and honey water recipe needs to be shared.
The best thing about this recipe is that you can make it yourself, meaning you know exactly what the ingredients are and where they came from. Do you know what the ingredients sucrose, dextrose, and monopotassium phosphate found in Gatorade are, or what they do to your body?
According to “The Healing Powers of Vinegar” by Cal Orey, “… apple cider vinegar aids digestion, helps maintain weight, maintains healthy skin, and keeps blood pressure down.” Honey is a natural sweetener; the original sweetener before high-fructose corn syrup invaded shelves.
Exact measurements vary according to one’s tastes, but for measurement sake:
¼ c. Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ c. Honey
8 c. Distilled water
Now you may ask “Where do you get this?” Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar can be found in the health foods section in Coborns or at the Good Earth Food Co-op on Veterans Dr. Honey can be found in any grocery store. And for a better taste use purified water, but it is not necessary. The price is under $10 for all of the ingredients, which can last well over a month.
Now go and try this new recipe and share this healthy alternative with your friends and family.
