Review & Recipe…..
Finally, the review that you have been waiting all week for. I couldn’t write my review until I had tried every product that was sent to me. And of course, I felt compelled to create a recipe to go with this amazing product. Two words, Vermont Village. A company name you need to know and a company name that you need to remember. Not only are their products high quality, organic, and non-GMO, they taste beyond incredible. Get ready to have your mind blown. You will never look at raw apple cider vinegar the same again!
For years I have been taking a shot of raw apple cider vinegar every morning for its health benefits. (Aids in weight loss, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, good for skin, destroys cancer cells, aids in digestion; just to name a few.) While I have studied fitness, food, and health benefits; as well as educated others based on scientific studies, I am not a doctor. Read my words as informative, not a medical prescription. (But if I could give it as a prescription I absolutely would!) Drinking raw ACV was never an enjoyable experience for me, it was literally taking medicine for health benefits. That is until I was introduced to Vermont Village Sipping Vinegar and Vinegar shots.
Lets start with their sipping vinegars. These yummy vinegars make your daily ACV enjoyable! There is a flavor that everyone can enjoy.
Organic Blueberry and Honey – This is my absolute personal favorite. I pour it in a shot glass with just a tiny bit of water and drink it straight. The honey does wonders for the flavor
Organic Cranberries and Honey – This one tastes good, but it isn’t on the top of my list. It does still make taking your daily shot easier.
Organic Turmeric and Honey – I am not a huge turmeric fan, but it helps to reduce inflammation, and with the honey it makes it really easy to drink.
Organic Ginger and Honey – This is my second favorite. I love the fact that you have double digestive aids in this mix.
Now on to their super convenient, portable vinegar shots. I can’t lie, I became addicted to these in just two days. I could never imagine just adding apple cider vinegar to my water, but after some disturbing findings about drinking sparkling water, I was having trouble getting my daily water intake. So, I decided to give it a try and squirt one of the vinegar shots in my bottle of water. I don’t think I can live without it now. I am drinking one in the morning, one in the evening, and plain water the rest of the day. The vinegar shot flavors are
Organic Blueberry and Honey
Organic Cranberries and Honey
Organic Turmeric and Honey
Organic Ginger and Honey
Organic ACV Double Shot
Before I give you my really simple recipe, I have to give a shout out to the Vermont Village team. They are so nice, and helpful. And one more thing I love about this company is that their products are super high quality, but still affordable! That means the world to me. Thanks for the big box of love! As far as the recipe, so simple. When I did my 1 year plant based experiment I got pretty turned off of mayo and started eating a lot of Dijon mustard. Today’s recipe is for a mayo free fruity chicken salad, but you can skip the chicken and stir this dressing, and the fruit, into rice, quinoa, or just about anything your heart desires. You just need to sit back, relax, and enjoy!
