I’ve been trying for a loooooong time to get healthy, fit, strong….and finally lose the last 10 baby pounds. Yes I’m in decent shape, but I have zero energy. I’m tired all the time (thanks to bed-wetting & teething), can barely keep up with my kids, and just feel blah. I want to just wake up and have energy, so I have enlisted the help of several friends, a nutritionist and my acupuncturist to help heal some of my ongoing issues. Enter apple cider vinegar.
One thing that I’ve learned in my pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, is the importance of hydration. I had low amniotic fluid during both of my pregnancies requiring hospitalization, so you would think I would have learned. But no, I always forget to drink enough water. In order to help me push fluids, lose weight, and optimize my health, here are some of the things I drink literally every day.
Braggs Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
This one I call swampwater, and I gagged the first time I tried it. Not a ringing endorsement I know, but a few days later…I craved them.Dr. Leonor Murciano-Chen, PHD, acupuncturist, and spiritual healer introduced me to supergreens when I was first trying to get pregnant. Suffering from stage 4 endometriosis, my diet changed drastically when I struggled with infertility. Leonor says, “They are great for balancing the PH of the body because we tend to eat more acidic foods. To maintain health we need alkaline foods as well. Supergreens provides that, and all the obvious trace elements naturally found in all green vegetables. It’s a great way to balance our diets without eating green vegetables for every meal!”I use a a 24 oz. cup and started with a 1/4 scoop. Then as you (and your digestive system) adjusts to the supergreens, you can up it to a 1/2 scoop, and then eventually a whole scoop. I drink at least 24 ounces a day, but I used to drink 48 oz. It really does help to keep you full. Oh and if you can’t take the taste at first, try mixing them with emergen-C…my favorite is the Acai Berry! The bonus of this is you are getting the proper amount of hydration throughout the day, and feel full too.
