Water Is So Boring.

But it doesn't have to be.

We all know water is good for us.  It stokes your metabolism so you burn more calories all day. It helps you stay energized, keeps you regular, and can improve your skin. 

Add one of the following to a glass a water for a tasty change to that boring water:

Cucumber
Lime
Lemon
Orange
Ginger
Mint Leaves
Lemongrass
Lavender
Rose Hips
Cherries
Mango
Pineapple
Watermelon

My mother swears by this - Sassy Water - you make it yourself using these ingredients:
As part of the best-selling Flat Belly Diet, dieters stay hydrated with this stomach-soothing recipe for Sassy Water. It combines fresh ginger, cucumber, lemon, and spearmint for a belly-pleasing (and slimming) cocktail.

  1. Thanks so much for passing the word around on this. We all balk at drinking water and yet it can be one of the most satisfying and refreshing drinks. I love to add a bit of fresh orange and a couple of mint leaves...or cucumber slices and rosemary....Makes the best tesanes...or Sassy Water :-) Love that title!
