How to incorporate apple cider vinegar into your diet

You’ve probably heard of the numerous health benefits of apple cider vinegar (ACV) from several social media influencers, those that are into natural remedies…and us! But are you left wondering how to incorporate it into your diet? We’re here to help!

We recommend that you take 10 ml of vinegar per day, ideally mixed into 40 ml of water 30 minutes before a meal, for maximum benefit. However, there are more exciting, creative ways you can take this pathogen-inhibiting powerhouse…

Salad dressings

Combine olive oil, ACV (we like Vinegar 2 from Ana’s Farmacy for this!), crushed garlic and a little Dijon mustard to create a quick and delicious salad dressing – great for topping mixed leaves and other cold salads (quinoa, pasta etc.).


Add two TSPs of ACV to a handful of your favourite berries, ice, a little yacon syrup and sparkling water. Muddle and garnish with a sprig of basil or mint. Perfect for Summer!


Pickle cucumbers, cauli, beetroot and/or cabbage in ACV! Simply sprinkle the cut/shredded veggies with salt, leaving for one hour, to prevent liquid from the vegetables diluting your pickle. Rinse, thoroughly dry then add to a jar. Fill the jar with a ACV, hot water, salt and sugar solution (you can find an exact recipe online), seal, shake, allow to cool at room temperature then store. All three vinegars from Ana’s Farmacy would make a tasty base for your pickles!


Are you planning on making a chicken soup with the leftovers from your Sunday roast? Don’t forget to add 1-2 TBSPs of apple cider vinegar! This goes for any soup or broth you’re whipping up, especially Japanese dishes and miso broths – yum!
