I have added a Tbsp of Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) to my morning nutrition. Just add a Tbsp to your juice, stir and brace yourself. The pungent cider is a little difficult to navigate around, but just gulp it down. After work I will take about 1/3 pint of juice and top it off with club soda with a Tbsp of ACV, this is much easier to negotiate through your palate. They also have one with a honey blend added if your taste buds are still not convinced. ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor a way.’
Come on guys we all love bacon, but the sodium nitrates go right through me, so I tried some bacon without sodium nitrates. Look for sea salt as a substitute instead. I tried several different brands, but for me Hormel’s Natural Choice (Original Uncured Bacon) had the best flavor and on sale at Kroger/Fry’s it is only $4.99, it costs a buck or two more than sodium nitrate, but it’s better for you. Bacon that is good for you, well almost.

I will have this snack for my breakfast and for dessert after lunch or dinner. Take a bowl and add sliced bananas and add a heaping tablespoon of natural peanut butter, a heaping tablespoon of raw/unfiltered honey and other fruits or flax seed. Mix and enjoy. This is a healthy snack that will please your sweet tooth and fill you up. Kroger sells a creamy natural for around $2 bucks.
*Healthy tip- open and stir the peanut butter and separated oil together, firmly fasten the lid and then store upside down in the fridge – you can thank me later.
