Apple Cider Vinegar Remedy for Cholesterol: Panacea for Many Ills


acv remedy for cholesterol
High cholesterol rings danger bells for most of us. Yes, it is a sign of imminent danger - signs that aren't good for your heart. It's important to keep a check on your daily intake and follow a strict exercise regimen to keep your cholesterol levels in check. Here, I have come up with an Apple Cider Vinegar remedy, which reportedly helps manage cholesterol levels. We prepare this recipe at home and have been using it for over 3 months. Here's the detailed recipe.


ACV is highly beneficial to health. Besides other health benefits, it is known to be highly effective in fighting high cholesterol levels. We prepare a home remedy with ACV for cholesterol. The recipe was shared by my mom, who had read it elsewhere and prepared the remedy.

My brother had high total cholesterol. After he started taking this ACV cholesterol remedy, his cholesterol has improved significantly. However, I must admit that he started a strict exercise regimen simultaneously. He goes for a long, brisk walk in the morning.

I am not sure whether we can attribute the drop in his cholesterol to ACV remedy or his long walks, but something has really worked well. So he continues to stick to both.

You need ginger, garlic, lemon, honey, and ACV for that remedy. 



Recipe:
  • Take equal amount of garlic and ginger separately. 
  • Grind garlic and strain it. We need garlic water. You may either use a cloth or strainer (it will help to add little garlic foliage as well, so better use a thick strainer that will allow little bit of roughage to pass through).
  • Similarly, grind ginger and strain its water. Follow the same process as garlic. Keep both separate. Measure the quantity of each. They should measure the same. For e.g. if garlic water is 1 cup, ginger water should also be 1 cup. Keep aside.
  • Soak lemons in warm water. It will make it easier to squeeze them. My mom says by doing so, you can get maximum out of lemon. :) Again, we need equal amount of lime juice as ginger and garlic water. (for e.g. 1 cup garlic water, 1 cup ginger water, 1 cup lime juice).
  • Once done, take a deep steep vessel. Add ginger juice, garlic juice, and lime juice to it.
  • We need equal amount of ACV. (1 cup here)
  • Mix ginger, garlic, lime juices and ACV.
  • Keep this on a low flame for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, it will be almost half of its original quantity (more or less).
  • Let it cool down completely.
  • Upon cooling, measure the amount of this mixture. For example, it is 2 cups.
  • We need equal amount of honey (2 cups here).
  • Pour this mixture in a bottle (glass or food-grade plastic).
  • Add honey.
  • Shake it very well.
  • Your ACV cholesterol remedy is ready :)
Mix 1 tsp with 1/4 cup of water and take it on an empty stomach, to begin with. Do not forget to shake it well before use

Tips


  1. What I do is grind garlic first and strain it, which gives me an idea as to how much amount of ginger I should take. Rest everything falls into place. Always make in small batches and refrigerate.
  2. Take 250 gram garlic and an equal quantity of ginger. First, grind & squeeze garlic. Put it into a measuring jar. Keep aside. Then squeeze ginger (ginger tends to be more juicy, so you may get more juice from 250 grams - you may take less - 200 grams) Then measure it . In my case, garlic measured lesser than ginger. I had to grind more garlic to ensure both are equal in quantity. 
  3. I use the foliage in recipes (why discard) !!
  4. I add little amount of water in garlic while grinding to speed up the process. This will help you squeeze it properly

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…

Instant Aam Papad (Sada) With Jaggery: Sweet & Tangy Mango Slices

Aam papad has been a hot favorite since childhood. I do not remember how many times I have enjoyed these sweet & tangy mango sheets, though no one from my mom's side ever tried making them at home. After marriage, my mother in law, who is an awesome cook, made these savory & sweet mango pulp slices for me. I must tell that she makes the best mango pickle in the world - which is both sweet & sour. She made two buckets full for me after she found that I love aam achaar.

Who does not like sweet and tangy mango leather? Our generation has grown up relishing aam papad- wonder what all the present generation is missing out on! So this instant aam sada or papad recipe was born after my dear friend Poonam Bachhav had shared her aam papad post. Her post was the ultimate trigger for me to come up with my own instant Odia version. Poonam is the real Annapurna. I love the way she picks healthy ingredients to cook up deliciousness in the kitchen. Poonam blogs at Poonam Bachaav dot…
