Join me for a morning cocktail?
Get a tablespoon.
Get a cup. It helps if you use an old plastic santa cup that you bought circa 1999 while living in your first post-college apartment at an after Christmas sale. (Set of 6 for 50 cents!)
Get some green powder. I like the stuff from Swanson’s Vitamins. It’s good quality and it’s affordable!
Get some apple cider vinegar. Not the cheapo regular grocery store kind, you want a good organic one that has “the mother” – aka naturally occurring enzymes that haven’t been destroyed by pasteurization. These help with pH balance, aids digestion, provides potassium, helps relieve muscle pain, improves immunity, etc.
Put one tablespoon green powder in the cup.
Measure out one tablespoon of vinegar. Make sure to shake up the bottle first to get “the mother” distributed throughout.
Dump the vinegar on top of the green powder.
Add water, about 6-8 ounces of water should do the trick.
Stir it up, make sure to scrape the bottom so you don’t end up with thick green sludge left.
Chug your concoction. No… it doesn’t taste good. The first few times are the hardest, it does get easier over time.
I found that the apple cider vinegar and green powder helped a lot with heartburn during pregnancy. And there’s something about this that just feels very cleansing and virtuous about drinking this. In fact, I believe in the importance of this enough to even make my first ever guide on SnapGuide about the subject! Cause I’m a dork like that!
