I’ve enjoyed this ritual for months now, partly based on a recommendation from a Parisian nutritionalist, and I have never felt better in the morning hours.  It seemed right to share this formula since it has brought so much health and vitality to my life.

LESS THAN A MINUTE’S TIME REQUIRED

Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

There must be something miraculous about ingesting apple cider vinegar, since historical records suggest that even the father of medicine, Hippocrates, used it around 400 BC as a primary health remedy. A simple online search on the benefits of apple cider vinegar will yield a plethora of information.

1. Take a shot glass. Fill it with half water and half Bragg’s apple cider vinegar and drink it down in one gulp with your favorite supplement (my choice: kyolic garlic for disease fighting and anti-inflammatory effects).

Two tablespoons of almond butter has around 202 calories, 18 grams of mostly unsaturated fat, and 4 grams of protein. It’s an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium and manganese. It also provides fiber, calcium, iron, a few B-vitamins, potassium, and zinc.The flavor of almond butter is comparable to peanut butter only nuttier and slightly richer. It’s a tasty alternative for those with peanut-only allergies.  A recent ABC News article also reported that two-time American Olympic medalist and beach volleyball player Kerry Walsh eats almond butter and honey sandwiches, especially before she competes.” blog.foodnetwork.com

2. Take about two tablespoons of almond butter and a tablespoon of raw pumpkin seeds.  A burst of energy will soon be heading in your direction.

"Brace yourselves - pumpkin seeds contain a long list of anti-ageing ingredients, including (deep breath) zinc, magnesium, iron, copper, vitamin A, B, K, manganese, protein, niacin, thiamine and omega 3 fatty acids, the combined power of which is pretty unbeatable when it comes to slowing down collagen breakdown. Take that, wrinkles!" www.easyliving.com.uk

The beautiful thing about this quick breakfast is that I’m not hungry at all for several hours and not tempted to overeat at lunch; and, of course, the health benefits of balancing blood sugar levels, combatting aging and losing weight are nothing to complain about.

  1. When purchasing an apple cider vinegar, you’ll want to avoid the perfectly clear, “sparkling clean” varieties you commonly see on grocery store shelves. Instead, you want organic, unfiltered, unprocessed apple cider vinegar, which is murky and brown.

  2. Pumpkin seeds. My pet hamster in this here profile picture of mine is utterly infatuated with the things. She can’t speak (too young or stupid, I guess) but it’s almost as if her every move mutters “pumpkin seeds!” or summit. Innit.

    • I’ve grown to rely on the filling taste of the almond butter and pumpkin seeds which to me are delicious.

      It’s true that the shot glass of apple cider vinegar with a supplement is very strong in taste–for about a second in time–but the benefits are so great (especially in helping to make the body more alkaline) that I can handle a micromoment of discomfort. Thanks for the question. ~S

  3. Apple Cider vinegar…not a problem. I used to stir in a little honey to make drinking vinegar a little easier. Almond butter will be a bit tricky. How much weight did you lose?
