Dr. Tim Says....
Next week is Labor Day. I love summer but it's about over and time to celebrate. Holidays are certainly a good time to splurge a bit and maybe eat too much. Not a big deal -- that's one of the most important parts of eating healthy. It's really important to give yourself permission to cut loose now and then.
That said, you can still eat food that's great for you even if you're eating a bit too much. I’ve put together some ideas for you. Labor Day

Ask Dr. Gourmet
Dr. Gourmet, I have a friend who is taking Coumadin and also is drinking diluted, apple cider vinegar as a daily health option. Could it have an effect on her Coumadin? Her physician can't seem to get her blood to thin out.
Dr. Gourmet Says....
I cannot imagine why anyone would want to drink apple cider vinegar but I do have a friend who enjoys chewing on lemons. Some people do like sour flavors.
There's no medical reason to drink apple cider vinegar but people have been for centuries. It doesn't appear to harm anything. There is no Vitamin K in cider vinegars and I have not been able to find any reports of an interaction with Coumadin® (warfarin). One way to see is to stop drinking the vinegar to see if the INR levels even out.
Featured Ingredient: Vinegars
For the most part I have specified what type of vinegar to use in a specific recipe.
Vinegar is almost always made from wine (or any alcoholic beverage) by fermenting the alcohol with acid, thereby producing bacteria. So, apple cider vinegar comes from just that and white vinegar comes from clear grain alcohol. Vinegars
