PBJ's never tasted better!

Lemon-Lime "soda"

This what "Sprite" ought to be!

Squeeze 1/2 lemon and 1/2 lime and 1 pk of stevia into a tall glass.
Fill with chilled Sparkling water (Acqua di Nepi or Pellegrino,etc.)
Add ice and enjoy refreshing "Sprite"

Berry ACV Energy Drink

The benefits of apple cider vinegar are amazing!
Discovered  around 5000 BC, it has been used as a food preservative and soon found its way for 
medicinal purposes.  Hippocrates used it to manage wounds and since the 1700's has been used for
everything from skin issues, stomach ailments and even diabetes treatment. (Note: last week while at work, I was stung by ground hornets at least 10 times, I applied ACV to the stings. The itch and pain wasn't as intense!) Check out: Apple Cider Vinegar Benefits.  Here's a easy morning drink recipe to start your day.

In a tall glass;
1 heaping spoonful of fresh or frozen berries.
"Muddle" the fruit with the back of a spoon.
Add 1/2 to 1 tbs of organic apple cider vinegar.
Stir and fill with chilled filtered water.
You can add Stevia or honey to taste.

Thanks for reading!
Have a great week and be kind.
