Looking for a way to jazz up water? My friend Betsy prepared this ‘Sassy Water’ which comes from the Flat Belly Diet. It has a nice tang and is said to help with digestion!
2 liters water (about 8 and 1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
12 small spearmint leaves.
Directions Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. Drink the entire pitcher by the end of each day.
Note: The ingredients in Sassy water aren’t just for flavor: the ginger helps calm and soothe your GI tract.
