apple cider vinegar (ACV) brightens your summer


By: Candice Kumai

Apple cider vinegar is a simple and fresh wellness ingredient catching a lot of attention right now. In my research as a wellness writer and professional chef in addition to my own use, I find that ACV is rich in natural enzymes, is naturally detoxifying (hello Monday morning!), helps balance pH levels, aids in digestion and helps to boost immunity, naturally.

That’s why I’m so excited to partner with Nature’s Intent® Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, which is raw, unfiltered and made with the mother. 

This superfood can be consumed daily either mixed with water in or even better, incorporated in fresh, seasonal summer-body-ready recipes! Think salad dressings, marinades, soups, and even smoothies!

But Nature’s Intent Organic Apple Cider Vinegar goes far beyond vinaigrettes and classic dressings. It’s a fab way to brighten and awaken the flavors of recipes by enhancing the ingredients.

I’ll be sharing my favorite ACV recipes here on my blog all summer long + more recipes from my new book, Kintsugi Wellness

Today, I’ll be sharing a delicious Peach Smoothie recipe along with a Carrot Beauty Noodle recipe that are brought to life with the help of Nature’s Intent Organic Apple Cider Vinegar.
