Sassy Water Recipe: Perk up your water and Shape up your body

I want to share this great recipe for Sassy Water, originally from Prevention magazine’s Flat Belly Diet.

This is perfect if you aren’t fond of drinking plain water – which many people aren’t. You’ll love this when you try some water with pizazz!

Here’s the recipe for Sassy Water:

  • 2 liters water (about 8 1/2 cupss)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced (you can use limes… that is what I prefer)
  • 12 mint leaves

 

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, chill in the refrigerator overnight so the flavors will blend, and enjoy the whole thing the next day.

Spread it out evenly over the the whole day.

Not only will this help you drink water you know you need but often neglect, it has other benefits.

Probably the most noticeable will be the effects of the ginger and mint as they help clam and soothe your GI tract.

You should try this!!
