Most refreshing drink

When days get warmer or when I need a nice refreshing drink during a long walk, I bring not water but a home made mix of distilled water, Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar, a bit of ginger powder and some green juice. (For easy access I use Knudsen Green juice) The sugar I consume from the ready made juice is minimal but the taste in the drink is so improved. 

I make a little more then a 1 quart.

3 - 4 cups of distilled water
1 - 2 cups of Knudsen's Mega Green
1/8 - 1/4 cup  of Bragg's apple cider vinegar , read more about the benefits here.
2 pinch of ginger powder (one can use fresh one as well, try out amounts, but ginger is rather powerful as powder, I guess you can use a little more of the grated one.

Make it to taste. Add a little more green juice to make it less spicy. Or add more water.

Of course, now I will begin to experiment more: with fresh juiced vegetables, added Chlorella powder or spirulina....think about the possibilities.

Sunday morning sweetness

Our Sunday mornings are usually slow. The one day we love to sleep in, hang out in PJ's, chat on the phone with family and are generally late.
But we get up to create a light breakfast, served at bedside and enjoyed by all. My husband gets up to make a cup of coffee for each of us and I whip up a quick smoothie for all.
Today it was sweet, but light and fully nutritious.

1 English cucumber
1lb  carrots
3 celery stalks
3 apples
4 handfuls of red grapes
2 tbsp Udi's 3-6-9 omega oil

Enough for 4! But 2 can drink it all as well.... ; )))

Happy Sunday!
