I can drink a fabulous cup of bold roast with the best of them: Jones Coffee’s Madison Blend or a French Press of Peet’s Finest.  But geez not this fall.  Two bouts of a messed up PH in my intestinal lining forced Finch to take drastic measures!

Enter a return to the morning elixir.  Each morning I start my day with a cup of warm water, 1t of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar, some Trader Joe’s Cranberry Juice, Lemon Juice and Liquid Stevia.

This recipe does the following:

1. Helps keep the acid in the intestinal lining in check

2. Reduces my cravings for coffee and sugar

3. Kick-starts my morning metabolism

Mine does.  I get by with a little help from my friends mainly Apple Cider Vinegar these days.

Here’s a dandy recipe utilizing Bragg’s ACV as well.  Give it a whirl.  How do you start your morning
