9.) RESHARE: Pick up a bunch of red or green seedless grapes at the grocery. Wash them in a bath of apple cider vinegar and water, then rinse well. (Fill a large bowl with cool water and add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.) Place them on a clean dish towel to dry. Put them in a resealable bag or container, and place them in the freezer. Pop these frozen grapes in your mouth whenever you need a little pick-me-up. They are delicious!

10.) Wishing everyone a lovely rest of the week!
