I am drinking a new healthy drink and, strangely, enjoying every sip. A friend recommended it to me as the cure for practically everything from bad skin to osteoarthritis, not to mention that if you give it to your horses, it keeps the flies and mosquitoes away. I have to admit, I feel better since I started my sipping.
To make it, mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and honey to taste (or blackstrap molasses or pure maple syrup) in 8 ounces of distilled or purified water. Drink 3 glasses per day, the first on getting up in the morning, and the others an hour before lunch and dinner.
Of course, if I could do all that, I'd lead a much more balanced life. As it is, the recipe has become a squish of honey, a splash of vinegar, and fill up the rest of the glass with water from the Brita pitcher. Drink this whenever I feel like it, starting in the morning (right after my tea).
Even with this loose approximation of the correct method, I do feel more energetic and less creaky. Placebo effect, anyone?
Now, if I could just get a beermosa to go with, now and again. Then I would really feel better.
