They say whatever you do in the morning sets the tone for the rest of your day. If you’re trying to be a little healthier, this means the first thing you ingest has to be good for you and your body.

Enter The Morning Elixir, beloved by Solenn Heussaff (she says so right here!), among other wellness nuts. This blend of gut-loving probiotics, fiber, and antioxidants kickstarts your metabolism straight out of bed.
Here’s how its three main ingredients shake out:
1) Apple cider vinegar contains enzymes that stimulate digestion, helping your gut process food better and banish bloating; 2) Chia seeds contain fiber that fills you up real fast, while a chunk of its nutritional value comes from its energizing powers; 3) Lemon is high in antioxidants that help flush out toxins from your system, plus vitamin C to keep you sniffle-free during flu season.
What a way to make your mornings better, huh? For ingredient measurements and the quickest how-to ever, scroll!
THE MORNING ELIXIR
- 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1 tsp. Manuka honey (optional)
- Warm water
STEP 1: Mix ACV, chia seeds, and lemon juice into warm water until well combined. If desired, add Manuka honey for sweetness. STEP 2: Drink up! It’s best to have this in the morning to aid in digestion throughout the day. But feel free to sip on a glassful whenever you need the healthy energy surge!
