Going into the weekend, I wanted to give you a head’s up on some trends I’m trying. For you, really, to tell you if they work (at least for me) and give you my opinion on these health crazes.
Two trends I’m currently trying are:
1) Drinking 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar every morning in 8 oz of water as a morning snack. ACV is supposedly helpful in suppressing your appetite, as well as lowering cholesterol, help with heart burn (which I have), and help clear up allergies (which I also have.) I’m on Day 2, so we’ll let you know how it goes.
2) Putting 2 tbsp of ground flax seed on my morning yogurt/oatmeal combo. Flax seed contain omega-3s, help with inflammation, improve blood sugar, keep your heart healthy, and are full of fiber (read: appetite control, do we sense a theme?) I’ve been doing this on and off this week, but I’ll be more diligent and report back next week!
One trend I am going to try very soon?
Gluten free flour from Trader Joe’s. I saw this last night for the first time, and am excited to pick some up and see how it compares to others I have used. Corelyn and I were at TJ’s last night, and I tried desperately to explain to another man there what this meant for us (cheap gluten free flour! no more speciality stores! freedom!) and he started talking about the 60’s and how grains are bad for us, and I was said something about corn, and he was like, “We’ll be here all night,” and I was like, “Don’t even get me started about corn.” Basically what I mean is: TJ’s people are good people. They are MY people.
Any trends you’ve been into lately? Let us know in the comments! Happy Friday.
