Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

Apple Cider Vinegar Drink

Just about every morning I start the day with a huge glass mug of my Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Drink. It may just be because I am dehydrated or maybe my body is in need of the boost from the “mother” the Turmeric or the Ginger. Whatever the case, I feel sooooooooooo much better after […]

Edamame Israeli Salad

That being said it is TOTALLY fine to […]

Chicken Shawarma

Chicken Shwarma
