Apple cider vinegar is made by fermenting the sugar from apples. This turns them into acetic acid, which is a main active ingredient in vinegar and may be responsible for its health benefits.                                                                 

The main substance in vinegar — acetic acid — can kill harmful bacteria or prevent them from multiplying. It has a history of use as a disinfectant and natural preservative.                                                                                   

Apple cider vinegar has shown great promise in improving insulin sensitivity and helping lower blood sugar responses after meals.   

Technically a fruit, pecans are rich in protein and healthy fats, including oleic acid. Human and lab studies show they can reduce LDL and total cholesterol and may cut the risk of breast cancer.

Pecans are often associated with sugary foods like pecan pie, sweet potato casserole, or marshmallows. But to get the most health benefits, skip the sugar-laden treats and grab a handful of pecans on their own.

Technically a fruit rather than a nut, pecans are high in protein, at three grams per ounce. They also contain healthy fats.
