Have You Discovered Sassy Water Yet?
It is summertime here in Texas and it is super hot outside! This means that spending time outside requires that I wear the least amount of clothes possible. Because of this, I always spend a lot of time concentrating on my waist line!
I came across a recipe for Sassy Water through an article I read from Prevention Magazine. Sassy Water happens to be a key component of their Flat Belly Diet.
Though I am not 100% percent committed to the Flat Belly Diet, I am definitely on board with Sassy Water! It is very easy to make and very refreshing. It really encourages me to drink water because it tastes so -- which is great because water is so important for staying hydrated in this heat.
I like to make my Sassy Water in a glass refrigerator pitcher. This pitcher is awesome because it is dishwasher safe, the top makes a very tight seal, and it does not absorb any odors from your refrigerator.
Fork's Sassy Water
8 cups filtered water
1 large cucumber thinly sliced
1 large lemon thinly sliced
4 mint stems, leaves attached (I like to leave my leaves on the stem so that they don't end up in my cup)
Store the container in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before drinking. I find the longer it is in there, the better it gets! You can alter this recipe by including other delicious fruits.
Think watermelon, oranges, and grapefruit!
I think my next batch will be made with grapefruit! Click here to read my blog post about the benefits of grapefruits.
