When I was first introduced to Pooja at The Nutrition Clinic, my gut had become compromised. I felt it because even though I was eating a healthy diet, I wasn’t feeling my best. There was a lot of grumbling after eating, I felt tired and my skin looked stressed. When your digestion is not optimal, you’re not absorbing the nutrients that your body needs in order to thrive. You might see dull skin, hair breakage – it’s really common and some simple changes can make a big difference.
I did a food reset which really helped, and now I focus on healing my gut, rebuilding with probiotics and lots of bone broth. Pooja shared this recipe with me, it’s part of her reset program and I think you’ll love it too! Together, we’re building up a series of recipes, #RESETEATCLEAN created by a nutritionist to nourish your body, with simple and delicious food.
This gingery apple-cider drink is for your gut health.
It’s great for the morning to give your system a good boost, or you can drink it before a meal. With better digestion, you’ll feel the difference and it shows from the inside out!
Unprocessed apple cider vinegar (ACV), with the mother, is full of healthy probiotics that support a healthy gut and system.
Ginger, cinnamon and cayenne are spices that load your body with antioxidants and give your system a kickstart.
The combination tastes like Fall, warm and spicy – it’s not overpowering at all. I think it’s delicious! I’d love for you to try it too, hopefully it helps you if you happen to have a gut disorder, but remmeber that you can also visit the IBS Clinic for more tips regarding this health condition!

Can i use fresh ginger and the other spices instead of the ground.
Hi Susan, yes that would be lovely! You’ll want the ginger and spices to infuse into the drink, I’d grate the ginger or thinly slice it and leave it over night to enjoy in the morning.
Or, you can boil the ginger and spices in water for 1 hour and drink it as a tea, adding the apple cider vinegar after it infuses.
let us know what you come up with and how it works out! 🙂
This looks great. Is it safe to do while I’m pregnant then also after when I breast feed?
Hi Vanessa! I’d check with your doctor first before you start 🙂
Hi Militza, how much cayenne pepper do you use in this drink?
Hi Juliana – it’s a small pinch – less than 1/8 teaspoon. You feel a little kick, but not enough to burn! 🙂
