J.J. Smith's Apple Walnut Spinach Salad

Sometimes apple cider vinegar can be difficult to swallow — so combine it with other delicious flavors and watch it transform both your average salad and your weight loss! The combination of protein, fat, and fiber slows digestion and the absorption of sugar, so you won't crave unhealthy foods after eating it. A dressing of apple cider vinegar is the easiest way to incorporate it into your diet for a detox. Get more apple cider vinegar recipes in nutritionist J.J.
