A refreshing solution - apple cider vinegar and lemon drink

Apple cider vinegar and lemon drink

Raw, unfiltered organic apple cider vinegar - 1 T.
wedge of lemon
glass of water

If you aren't used to eating a plant-based diet, you may have concerns with gas. I'd like to offer a couple suggestions. Your body does adapt, but there are a few things you might also try.

Before breakfast, I have a refreshing glass of water with lemon and about a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. It should be raw, organic, and unfiltered. If it has a blob in it that is good. Just shake it before you use it. It will help your body's enzymes with digestion and also boost your immune system. You can have this a couple times a day about 15 minutes before meals. I just have it before breakfast - an added benefit is that I start my day hydrated. I like the tanginess of the drink, but if it's too sour for you, adding honey is an option.

Another way to combat gas in eating beans is to cook them yourself. The key is rinsing the soaking water before you cook.

Tip: I keep lemon wedges on hand for the week.

Salut!
