The Sassy Water – A Flat Belly Diet Staple

Sassy water

You’ve probably heard that you need about eight glasses of water a day for adequate hydration. Drinking water and even eating “watery” foods like melon, greens, and other fruits and vegetables has enormous health benefits, including warding off fatigue. But perhaps the most important belly benefit of proper hydration is how it helps maintain your body’s proper fluid balance and guard against water retention. It also helps prevent constipation, which can cause bloating.

Eight glasses of water is just a guideline; everyone’s fluid needs vary according to activity level and body. But eight is a good starting point for your anti-belly activity.

The Sassy Water Recipe

  • 2 liters water (about 8 ½ cups)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
  • 12 small spearmint leaves

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and let flavors blend overnight. Drink the entire pitcher by the end of each day.
