21 Recipes That Will Boost Your Apple Cider Vinegar Intake

From cleaning your sink to ridding your face of acne, apple cider vinegar can get the job done.

The list of ways to use this pantry staple seems endless, but I’m most excited about the health benefits your body can reap from apple cider vinegar (ACV).

Although its has a long history as a folk remedy, there are now scientific studies that back up the incredible health claims behind this humble liquid.

In recent studies, apple cider vinegar has been shown to stablilize blood sugar levels in people with diabetes (12), lower cholesterol (3), and help with weight loss (4).

Pretty amazing!

But, as much as I love the idea of getting in some daily apple cider vinegar, the thought of chugging it straight just isn’t appealing.

I’ve found that by incorporating ACV into recipes throughout my day, I get serious eating-for-energy benefits without any of the face-puckering side effects.

I’m sharing 21 recipes below that will boost your apple cider vinegar intake and give you a tasty way to get more ACV in your life.
