Delicious and versatile BRAGG Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Hey everyone it’s Shanon G. I wanted to tell everyone about a yummy and versatile product- Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar! It is made from delicious, healthy, organically grown apples. Processed and bottled in accordance with USDA guidelines, it is Certified Organic by Organic Certifiers and Oregon Tilth; and is Kosher Certified. Bragg Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar is full of zesty natural goodness. It’s a wholesome way to add delicious flavor to salads, veggies, most foods, and even sprinkle over popcorn. Apple Cider Vinegar has been highly regarded throughout history. In 400 B.C. the great Hippocrates, Father of Medicine, used it for its amazing health qualities.

Internal Benefits: Rich in enzymes & potassium, Support a healthy immune system, Helps control weight, Promotes digestion & ph Balance, Helps soothe dry throats, Helps remove body sludge toxins
External Benefits: Helps maintain healthy skin, Helps promote youthful, healthy bodies, Soothes irritated skin, Relieves muscle pain from exercise

It has many other uses besides as a food, here are some other ways to use it-
Deodorizer
Use apple cider vinegar in place of white vinegar to get rid of drain smells. Pour one cup down the drain, let it sit for 30 minutes and rinse. Or place one cup of apple cider vinegar in a glass and leave it in the refrigerator for two days to deodorize the fridge.
Fruit Fly Trap
Pour 1/2 cup Bragg apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup water and 10 drops of dish soap into a bowl or cup. You can make it harder for the fruit flies to escape by taping a paper funnel into a cup. Clean up any produce that is attracting fruit flies to minimize recurrences of the problem.
Gold Jewelry Cleaner
You can soak gold jewelry in one cup of apple cider vinegar for 15 minutes to clean it. Remove it and wipe it clean with a cloth.

Now run out and get yourself a bottle 🙂

Love them like family, feed them like family

I don’t have any kids, but I do have a baby. His name is Ozzy and he’s 6 pounds of pure energy! A Valentine gift from my husband at 10 weeks and less than a pound.

Having had dogs in the past that suffered from ear and skin allergies, (and my hundreds of wasted dollars in vet bills and steroid shots), I wanted to be extra careful what I fed this little guy. Also, I didn’t want to poke him with needles of unnessary vacciations.

I searched in my area for a holistic vet. Yes, they do exisist! And also at my local pet store for something better. Right there on the shelf in front of my face I see, wheat, soy, and corn free. Just like me!

Buffalo Blue, food for all stages of life and ymmy treats too. He loves it and I feel good about giving him something that’s not full of preservatives, and junk by-products. With the philosophy that “we don’t own our pets, they are family members and companions…” They love their pets as much as we love ours.

Yummy juice/smoothie snack

Here is a yummy “juicie” (smoothie/juice combined!) that I created, it’s great for pregnant women because it’s got a great fiber content- a whopping 7 grams!

1 green apple, juiced

1/2 grapefruit

1/2 cup pineapple chunks

1/2 cup prune juice

1/2 cup water

ice cubes if desired

here is how I made mine:

Cut the green apple in 1/2 and put it thru the juicer, then add the juice to the blender

Cut the grapefruit in 1/2 and use a very sharp knife to scoop out the “meat”, add to blender

Add the pineapple chunks to the blender

Lastly add the prune juice, water (filtered!), and ice cubes to the blender and blend for around a minute or until it’s smooth

ALL “HAIL MERRY!”

About a year ago while making my weekly shopping trip to Whole Foods I happened upon a small refrigerator in one of the aisles. I saw packages thru the glass that said “raw, vegan, gluten-free”, well you know I just had to take a look, because there was what appeared to be DESSERT in there!! Upon closer inspection I found out I was right! Not only were there desserts but also granola too! I was so excited to try my new find that I popped open one of the tarts in the car on my drive home, and it was the most delicious lemon tart I had ever had, nevermind that is was raw, vegan, and gluten-free. When I got home and had time that night I researched the company who makes the delicious treats, a company called “Hail Merry”. The company was started by a woman who lives in Dallas, named Susan O’Brien who has a passion for yoga which led her to create the brand. In a note from Susan on the website she says: “The essence of the brand was formulated over thousands of hours spent on a yoga mat in moving meditation. A spiritual awakening transpired over how food can heal our bodies so that we may feel more connected to our natural surroundings and appreciative of the foods given to us by Mother Nature.” I thought that was so inspiring, and also inspiring is the fact that now three women (she has since added two partners to her growing business) run the company. I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in raw, vegan, gluten-free treats to check out Hail Merry, and even if you’re not, the lemon tart is heavenly!

Namaste’
