I want to share with you a neat little recipe that really helped me shed some weight.
This terrific find is called "Sassy Water" - it is really easy to make, it is tasty and it has numerous benefits.
So, how to make this Sassy water?
You will need:
- One large cucumber
- Around 12 leaves of peppermint (or spearmint)
- One lemon
- One ginger root
- A pitcher or pot full of water (around 2 liters)
Cut the lemons and cucumbers in slices. Wash the spearmint and remove the leaves from the stem. Grind a bit of ginger root. Place all the ingredients into pot or pitcher. Leave in fridge overnight, filter the water in the morning and drink the entire pot/pitcher throughout the day. Sassy wanted should be taken with exclusion of all other drinks (coffee and tea included).
