3 good reasons why you should cook with apple cider vinegar

1. It keeps you satisfied

If you’re finishing a meal and then heading back to the kitchen for a snack, that means you are not feeling completely satisfied. Adding apple cider vinegar to your meal can help.

Avoid overeating during your meal and snacking afterwards to help keep your calories in check for the day.

Try this: Pumpkin and Apple Cider Soup (recipe available to members of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge).

2. It keeps blood sugar stable

Adding apple cider vinegar to your recipes can help to combat the blood sugar spikes that can come from a meal high in sugar or carbohydrates.

This, in turn, will help alleviate the inevitable blood sugar crash afterwards, meaning you’ll be less likely to reach for the biscuit tin at 3pm.

Keeping your blood sugar stable is a key part of weight loss, so this is why we recommend three meals and snacks per day as part of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Try this: Sweet and Sour Chicken Meatballs

3. It has probiotic benefits

The health of our gut affects our whole body, so it pays to look after the good bacteria in there.

Improve your gut health by adding apple cider vinegar to your diet, and you can also expect to reduce stomach fat at the same time.

Try this: Apple Cheese and Walnut Salad (recipe available to members of the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge).
