Thirsty Thursday: Sassy Water

I don't know about you, but for me, it's hard drinking eight glasses of water a day, especially when trying to change your eating/drinking habits. This weeks Thirsty Thursday is a non-alcoholic beverage.

 We don't really drink pop in the house and I rarely buy it, but juice is another thing. We drink juice all the time, which is no better then pop with all the sugar that's in them. So about a month ago I found a recipe for Sassy Water, tried it, loved it. It tastes so good and the best part about it is that it's healthy for you, like, seriously healthy for you.

Sassy Water helps you shed pounds around your midsection by eliminating buildup of contaminants, excess water and fat. The cucumbers is a natural diuretic that helps the body release stored excess water. The ginger boosts your metabolism and helps calm and sooth your GI tract. Perfect for those of us that are trying to loose a bit of weight.

  1. I'm a huge water drinker. Always looking for new ways to spruce up my glasses of water. Usually I just use berries and cucumber. I'll have to try out Sassy Water though. I love the benefits you've listed.

  2. Sounds fantastic! Not sure I can give up my coffee, but this sounds like a great way to drink water :)

  3. Oh wow - that sounds yummy!!! Will haver to try that out. Thanks! I've been drinking hot lemon water. Why do I have to give up my coffee though? I'm with Did You Know Canada on that one - is there a reason???

  4. That sounds awesome & I am one who both needs to drink more water & lose some extra poundage around my belly! I'm bookmarking this one! Is it hard to find fresh mint?

  5. I love love love cucumber in my water... makes the water so refreshing!!!

  6. I love this! This is actually my face mixture! I find I drink much more water if it's flavoured. Totally psychological? LOL I rarely drink water if I don't have lemon or lime in it.

  7. Crap! Darn auto correct! That should have been "fave" and not face!!!

  8. Just about to make this right now! Thanks for sharing because I need to drink more water and this seems a fun way to do it!

  9. Can you reuse the lemon/cukes for another batch?
