The Saturday Sip: A New Year's Cleanse

It seems like everybody is doing a cleanse these days.  I've read about juice cleanse after juice cleanse, and then I read (in several places) about adding a little apple cider vinegar to the daily diet, and all of the differences it can make (appetite suppression, speedy digestion, clearer skin, decreased inflammation, and the list goes on . . .).  So I thought I'd give it a shot.

Here's what you need, peeps:  A (approximately 15 oz.) bottle or glass (I use the same bottle everyday), raw, organic apple cider vinegar (it is EXTREMELY important that it not be pasteurized.  Raw all the way), lemon juice (the bottled variety works particularly well for this), and honey.  Combine 2 tablespoons of vinegar with a splash of lemon juice and a little bit of honey, then add 12 ounces of water.  You can either drink the concoction prior to a meal, or sip it slowly throughout the day.  I drink mine mid-morning, which has worked particularly well with my schedule.  The taste is different, but I was quick to get used to it.  I definitely recommend it if you're looking for something cleansing, but don't want to commit to 5 days of nothing but juice!

There are other things, however, that I am currently committing too (besides the aforementioned cleansing beverage) that will be shared with you in very short order.  Suffice it to say, my wardrobe is going to need some updating, and I feel that an updated in the hand/professional bag department may also be in order.

Not that this particular update will be possible, given the price tag, but my GOD that's a gorgeous bag.
