*The* Sassy Water Recipe

     This is from the Flat Belly Diet and it is delicious!! The cucumber and lemon are natural diurectics. The ginger and spearmint help relieve bloating. Regardless, a delicious and refreshing way to enjoy your 8 glasses a day … especially if drinking that much water doesn’t appeal to you.  Make the night before and fill up your water bottle for the day.  Or, you can do what I do and fill a mason jar with ice, “sassy water”, and garnish with a lemon – there’s something about drinking fresh water out of a mason jar that brings images of a summer country vacation.  🙂


8 1/2 cups water
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 medium cucumbers, sliced thin
1 medium lemons, sliced thin
12 leaves spearmint


Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher.
Refrigerate overnight.
Strain water.
