Once You Read This, You’ll Never Buy Salad Dressing Again

  Once You Read This, You’ll Never Buy Salad Dressing Again When you go to the store to look for salad dressing, you’ve probably taken a quick glance at the back of the label. You’ve seen that the bottles harbor upwards of twenty ingredients each: sugars, spices, oils, emulsifiers, vinegar, food coloring, preservatives, chemicals… You might have seen that and been scared off. Maybe you quit the dressing altogether, or you look for super “clean” brands with products made from only a few natural foods. Those options are undoubtedly better for your health — but not so much for your wallet.Just one of those small bottles can tack on $7 to your grocery bill.

So when I scrolled through Pinterest, I came across a ton of pins that talked about the benefits of taking apple cider vinegar (ACV). I decided to try it out myself and take a shot every morning so you don’t have to.

Apple cider vinegar can be added to all kinds of recipes, but sometimes there just isn’t time to work in your daily dose of it. Instead of trying to fit vinegar into your diet, try taking a shot of it instead! Yep, you read that right.

  • Apple cider vinegar is often touted as something that will make you healthier.
  • People claim it can suppress appetite, help with acid reflux, and help your digestion.
  • I took a shot of it every day for 10 days.
  • I didn't see much of a difference.

I unapologetically love vinegar. My father raised me to believe that french fries should be smothers in malt vinegar, not ketchup. My best friend and I once ate so many salt and vinegar potato chips that it literally burned an indent in her cheek. I have about four different types of vinegar in my cabinet at home. It's an obsession.

Every fall we take at least one trip to an apple orchard near us. They have family-friendly activities, wonderful local canned goods for sale, and of course, apples . How do you use apple cider vinegar ? Will you try your hand at making your own?

Apple cider vinegar has been on the health and wellness radar for quite some time. Sweeten with a bit of honey and keep the Fire Cider to use as salad dressing or to take as a shot when you 're feeling under the weather.

And, given the alleged benefits of apple cider vinegar, I thought it was an obsession that could make me healthier.

Although I primarily use it to make salad dressings and in my face masks, ingesting apple cider vinegar is supposed to help with suppressing appetite, improving digestion, and issues associated with acid reflux, the last of which I have.

I'd done this once or twice before, so I sort of knew what to expect. But ingesting it religiously, I had been assured, would altar my eating habits, clear my skin, make me invincible to bear attacks, and essentially chance my life for the better.

On day one, I eagerly doled out my shot.

According to the internet, you are supposed to drink two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in the morning for maximum results. I, not thinking very clearly at 6 a.m., decided to take each spoonful individually rather than measure both into a shot glass.

This proved to be the wrong move, because I had to let the taste sit for a while before I could take the second spoonful and chase with a glass of cold water. This was absolutely the worst thing I could have done.

Although I can eat pickles and drown salads in red wine vinegar, drinking it solo is a whole other story. It tastes like eating 5,000 savory Sweet Tarts at once, and the only way to get rid of the taste is to drown it out with something else.

In terms of how it made me feel, not a whole lot changed.

I expected this shot to make me feel gassy and awful because of my acid reflux — and it did, but only on the first day. Aside from that, it only made one major difference.

I was starving all of the time.

Now this isn't wholly unusual. I do Weight Watchers, so it's not like I stuff myself on the reg. For some reason, however, I had horrible food cravings during this experiment. I wanted french fries, pita bread, and, for some weird reason, red wine and hot chocolate mixed together. I usually crave healthy foods, but for some reason I just felt the need to pig out.

a woman taking a selfie: IMG_2733 © Provided by Business Insider Inc IMG_2733 I didn't end up eating these things (well, except some sweet potato fries) but I did find myself reaching for snacks a little bit earlier in the day and more often. This is weird, because I had always heard that apple cider vinegar could be used to suppress your appetite.

It turns out, that is only tru to an extent. Experts told CNN, but probably only because vinegar can make people nauseous and not want to eat very much. Looks like I love vinegar so much that it just made me want to eat more. Whoops!

I bring up fermented foods because I have a friend who swears by apple cider vinegar for all of her ailments. As a Registered Dietitian, I like to do my research and try to make sense of why people try things like taking a shot of apple cider vinegar every day .

It didn't end up really helping or hurting my acid reflux. Truth be told, I didn't really notice much of a difference at all when taking these shots, other than a sour taste in the back of my throat for a few hours in the morning.

This got me thinking about how we think about health.

Sure, apple cider vinegar has many uses, and there is some tentative proof that it can be healthy for you, but is it really worth taking a shot of it in the morning? For me, no. Unfortunately, it took me a few days after my experiment to come to that conclusion. In fact, I was only going to do this experiment for a week, but I ended up extending to 10 days just to see if maybe I was doing something wrong.

The thing is, it felt healthy. It felt like I was doing something slightly difficult that would ultimately make me really healthy in the long run. It seemed like a shortcut, like it should work.

If you're a person who's wanted to get fit or watch what you're eating, you'll know that people love to trick you with small things that will get you "healthy" with as little work as possible. They'll swear that if you just eat all the avocados that you'll have glowing skin. Or that if you just invest in some ridiculous health product, you'll be as fit as a weight lifter.

If we're literally just all trying to make ourselves nauseous rather than eating in moderation and moving our bodies as often as we can, is that really health?

Healthy Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar
