iVillage.com: Foods That Are Healthier Than You Think

Vinegar

Did you know that vinegar can help you manage your blood sugar and even speed up weight loss? “Research from Lund University found that supplementing high glycemic index meals with vinegar reduced participants’ blood sugar responses, resulting in increased feelings of satiety,” Batayneh says. Avoiding a blood sugar crash (and the resulting hunger that follows it) means you may be better able to fight off cravings and stick with your healthy diet. And the good news is you don’t have to start trying to gulp down shots of the stuff to reap its healthy benefits either – a single tablespoon is enough. Batayneh recommends adding a tablespoon (or two) of balsamic or red wine vinegar to pasta and potato salads to help maintain steady blood sugar levels when eating starchy meals. Only have plain white distilled vinegar on hand? Use it! It still offers the same benefits and has a clean, crisp flavor that is ideal for marinades, she says.
