A Healthy Side That Helps With Weight Loss: Quick Pickle Recipe

Pickled vegetables are an excellent way to add flavour to your meals, especially if you're looking to lose weight. Not only are pickles low in calories, but studies have also shown that adding vinegar to your diet can help keep you feeling fuller and more satisfied for longer. And it's not just about weight loss: other studies have shown that vinegar can lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels as well as blood pressure; the pectin in apple cider vinegar can also help with constipation. I used cucumbers, onions, and red jalapeños in this recipe, but feel free to experiment with other produce to see what kind of pickles you like best. You can serve these pickles after a few hours in the fridge, but they taste best after a few days. Read on for the recipe.
