Autumn heralds a plentiful harvest and a slight turn inward. When in seasonal balance we may reflect in autumn on the excitement of summer and reap the gifts of self-reflection. It is a time when the body wants to stock up on nutrients and vitamins to prepare for the winter ahead. A bit of apple cider vinegar will keep all the cells of the body from becoming sluggish as we slow down a bit.
