Get your Sassy Water ingredients
Are you ready for the Sassy Water recipe? I thought so. Don’t let the “mint leaves” part scare you off. You don’t have to start growing plants; you can get them at any regular grocery store, and they are very inexpensive.
• 2 Quarts of water
• 12 Mint leaves
• 1 Cucumber peeled and sliced thin
• 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
• 1 Lemon sliced thin
1. Fill up a container with 2 quarts of water.
2. Break off 12 mint leaves and place into the water.
3. Thoroughly wash the lemon rind. Slice very thin and add to water.
4. Peel the cucumber, slice really thin, and add it to the water.
5. Grate the ginger root on the fine section of your grater. Add to the water.
6. Put the water in the refrigerator and let it get cold. Overnight is recommended.
One batch of sassy water should last you all day, so fill up your water bottle, thermos or whatever container you can take with you and you can have this tasty, healthy beverage with you all the time.
What makes sassy water sassy?
Sassy water was named in honor of its concoctor, Cynthia Sass. She is the nutrition director at Prevention. The magazine also says it is so named because “it’s a heck of a lot perkier than plain old water.”
Other web sites say Sassy Water has an energizing effect somewhat similar to caffeine. The ginger is the key; it has natural energy enhancers.
Prevention Magazine includes sassy water as part of its popular “Flat Belly Diet.” Prevention recommends using this drink as a four-day “jump start.” It is almost free of calories, plus it keeps you well hydrated.
And, though you could spring for the “Flat Belly Diet” book, you could save yourself some cash by just switching from soda to sassy water and incorporating common sense into your diet.

You could also incorporate these 10 foods, also recommended by Prevention, into your diet:
3. Dark or Semi-Sweet Chocolate
4. Flaxseed Oil
5. Macadamia Nuts
6. Natural Peanut Butter
7. Olive Oil
9. Sunflower Seeds
Of course, these foods are meant to be eaten in moderation. Most of them are meant to take the place of something else — dark chocolate instead of regular chocolate, olive oil instead of butter or regular cooking oil, you get the idea – the same way Sassy Water takes the place of soda. Basically, these foods are sources of good fat rather than bad fat, and Sassy Water is a source of natural, low-calorie energy.
