Blending Buddy

            Welcome to another edition of "Blending Buddy", where I show you what I've been drinking to help me lead a healthier lifestyle. This month's edition is called the "Kickstart Your Intake". It consists of these ingredients:

  • 1 kale leaf (maybe 2)
  • 1 1/3 inch slice of pomegranate
  • A pinch of tumeric
  • 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar (fill the rest of the container with water)
  • 2 tomato halves
  • 5 slices of cucumber
  • 1 1/3 inch slice of lemon
  • 1 chopped carrot
           This is supposed to be the ultimate health drink (at least I think so, from gathering all the information about these ingredients). Just a bit of background on some of these ingredients: Tomatoes are great for your heart's health, so if you're struggling with heart problems, add some extra to your drink. Pomegranates are also a great help regarding heart health and have many nutrition benefits, including plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, and folic acid. However, they have an overpowering taste (same thing with the apple cider vinegar). So, if you're not a big fan of puckering up after drinking this, put a limited amount in. While apple cider vinegar won't help you instantaneously lose weight, it is a solid support of weight loss and can help relieve acid reflux and lower blood pressure. This is due to its healing compounds, which include magnesium, probiotics, and potassium.
