5 Things Apple Cider Vinegar Could Help With

Apple Cider Vinegar

5 Things Apple Cider Vinegar Could Help With

If it’s not there already, apple cider vinegar deserves a home in your kitchen cupboard. It’s rich in vitamins E, A, and P and magnesium, iron, calcium — the list goes on and on. If the vitamins and minerals alone are not enough reason to have you hooked, here are five reasons you should always have apple cider vinegar on hand.

1. Support weight loss: If you’re looking to shed a few pounds, it’s time to start using apple cider vinegar. Studies have shown that vinegar may help keep you from feeling hungry by slowing stomach emptying; it also lowers the glycemic index of high-carb foods like pasta, meaning it can help you feel fuller longer by slowing the release of glucose into your bloodstream.

2. Improve digestion: The pectin in apple cider vinegar has been known to move things along when bellies get backed up. Up your fiber intake with a green salad with plenty of roughage topped off with this honey apple cider vinaigrette to improve your digestion situation.

3. Zap warts: This may come as a surprise, but soaking a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and securing it on a pesky wart with medical tape can get rid of it quickly and naturally. Keep this in mind before you immediately call your dermatologist next time!

4. Add a pep to your step: Apple cider vinegar is also credited with improving energy levels. If you’re cutting out caffeine at work, just a few tablespoons of ACV mixed with a full glass of water can keep you from feeling cloudy and get you back to work.

5. Boost immunity: When you’re adding that many healthy vitamins and minerals to your system, it’s going to help your immune system ward off illness. If you’re already sick and in need of a little help, drink hot apple cider vinegar brew that combines cayenne, lemon, and honey, which will help open up your sinuses and replenish your body with the minerals it needs to recoup.

Servings: 3 • Size: 1/3 cup • Old Points: 2 pts • Weight Watcher Points+: 3 pt
Calories: 144 • Fat: 1 g • Carb: 26 g • Fiber: 6 g • Protein: 8 g • Sugar: 1 g

Ingredients:

15 oz can chickpeas, drained
olive oil spray
1/8 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp chili pepper powder
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°F. Drain chickpeas in a colander and let them dry completely. Pat dry with a paper towel if needed. Leave them on the counter an hour to make sure they are very dry.
Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for about 35 to 45 minutes, shaking the pan every ten minutes. All ovens are different so make sure they don’t burn. They will be golden brown and crunchy on the inside when done, not moist.
In a medium bowl, combine all the spices. Remove chickpeas from oven when done and spray with olive oil. Immediately toss with spices while hot. Eat at room temperature.
Get creative and use any spice you like. They would also be good tossed in some ranch seasoning mix.
