One of my premiere Fat Flush secrets is this: when you crave something sweet, satisfy that craving with something sour. And what better than these oh-so-easy homemade pickles. These are a great snack between meals, and they can be used sliced in salads and for burgers. SERVES 4
• 8 cucumbers, cut into spears
• 1 cup apple cider vinegar
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 2 teaspoons fresh dill
• Dash of turmeric
1. In a medium bowl, blend the cucumbers, vinegar, garlic, dill, and turmeric.
2. Cover, refrigerate for at least 6 hours, and enjoy.
