It's Friday! After a long week of work, you're probably ready to curl up on the couch with a big box of doughnuts.

12 Awesome Reasons To Add Apple Cider Vinegar To Your Diet | Nutrition Best Practices | Scoop.it

"Apple cider vinegar doesn't sound like much, and it doesn't look like much either. Vinegar is vinegar, right? In this case, wrong."
