There are some who start their day, week in and week out, with apple cider vinegar and hot water to aid digestion…do you?
Perhaps you opt for something a little more palatable, like mixing a little vinegar with apple juice, beetroot juice or grapefruit juice. Why have generations used it? Vinegars have, in the past, been linked to having an effect on the rate at which carbohydrates are digested and, though acidic, apple cider vinegar is reported to have an alkalising effect on the body which may prevent disease.
It’s also a very versatile ingredient. It can be used in the following ways:
Mix it with olive oil to make a vinaigrette for your summer salads
Use it, on its own, as a light dressing for wrap fillings
Sprinkle some over kale before baking in the oven to make kale chips
Add a teaspoon to a smoothie
If you’re a fan of tea infusions such as lemongrass, add a little apple cider vinegar to the mix
It’s great in a smoothie like the Cayenne Cleanse superfood smoothie you’ll find on the new and improved KAUAI menu. It’s made with a delicious mix of pineapple, lemon, ginger, freshly squeezed apple juice, honey, cayenne pepper and apple cider vinegar. Take a look at the menu here.
