Now that I’m this jet setting ninja, I come across lots of interesting people, who have even more interesting habits.
Here’s how I got caught up in the Apple Cider Vinegar saga.
We’re in Tampa and my co-worker tells me that we’re going to take a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar in the morning. I don’t even eat salt and vinegar chips so I already KNOW there will be no shots for me, unless I’m off the clock and Hennessy is involved. My first response, which is also my first thought, is “No, we’re not going to do anything together but our job.” Of course she laughs and I’m standing there with a straight face.
I didn’t think about it for the rest of the day, or that evening. So you can imagine my surprise the next morning when she pulls out a bottle of ACV and takes out two cups.
Sweet baby Jesus, that stuff stunk so bad. She poured two shots and two glasses of orange juice. After toasting to a healthy lifestyle and fulfilling 2017, we took the shot and chased it down with the juice.
Truth is, it wasn’t that bad! I didn’t enjoy it, but I felt like I could do it again!
I felt really good the entire day. I’m usually tired between flights because of jet lag and I wasn’t tired after a 14 hour day. It took a few hours for me to realize it, but I felt really leveled. Not like I was going to crash and burn later, like I sometimes do when I end a three day trip.
I think it tastes best if you add a shot of ACV to orange juice, pineapple juice, any hot tea, or very cold welch’s juice. Some won’t agree, because of the acid, but I’m still alive and well.
Some amazing benefits have happened since I began drinking ACV. The first thing I noticed was a boost in my energy, which I already told you about. Second was my teeth; they were a lot whiter than normal. I also don’t have a dry mouth at the end of a long day. My arthritis pain in my wrist stopped, and I haven’t had any more aches either.
But the BEST benefit was the swelling in my tonsils subsided. I’ve had trouble with my tonsils for years. I’ve been delaying getting them removed, because if they don’t bother me I don’t want to bother them. I’m okay with them being back there (even if it looks like two big knots sitting in the back of my throat). My ENT told me my swelling comes from allergies. One thing I’m allergic to is dust, and there is a lot of dust on planes. From my understanding of one way ACV works is that it clears out your gut. So when we breathe in different allergens, they settle in our throat and stomach. ACV cleans all of that out. My throat burned for about a week, but I noticed that the size of my tonsils were going down drastically, so I continued to take my shot of ACV. Now, my tonsils don’t burn, and my tonsils look normal.
I’m encouraging everyone I know to take a shot of ACV at least once a day. I don’t usually get on the bandwagon about a lot of things, but ACV is something I truly believe in. So tomorrow morning add a shot of Apple Cider Vinegar to your glass of tea, or water, or be daring and take a shot like me and chase it with a glass of orange juice!
