sassy water

Caramel apples! Hot cocoa! Whipped cream!  Pumpkin bars! Cream cheese frosting!  Yeah, I could keep going but I better stop; I’m getting hungry.  Fall and winter bring us so many delicious things to eat that it can be hard to stay disciplined about health.

But there’s one healthy, sugar-free drink I actually enjoy.  The recipe, called “Sassy Water,” comes from the Flat Belly Diet Family Cookbook.  I checked out the cookbook to get the Mediterranean Chopped Salad recipe, but I’ve made this recipe even more than that one.

I throw cucumber and lemon slices, grated ginger root, and a few mint leaves in water and leave it in the fridge overnight.  In the morning I strain it and then–wahoo!–drinking water isn’t boring.
