Sassy (Anti Bloating) Water

9 Jun

The Sassy Water recipe comes from the Flat Belly Diet. I don’t follow this diet but I do love water, especially naturally flavored water. Sassy Water is flavored with cucumber, lemon, ginger and spearmint leaves. The cumber and lemon are natural diuretics. The ginger and spearmint help relieve bloating. PERFECT!

Ingredients

8 1/2 Cups Water
7  Fresh Ginger Slices, thinly sliced
1 Medium Cucumber, thinly sliced
1 Medium Lemon, thinly sliced
12 – 15 small Spearmint Leaves

Direction

Combine all the ingredients and let it stand in fridge for at least 12 hours.

Sweet Iced Black Tea

Black tea reduces the stress hormone cortisol. If not kept under control it can lead to excess glucose production, which your body then converts into fat. By drinking 4 cups of black tea daily you can stop belly fat before it starts. So drink up!

Sweet Iced Black Tea

4 Black Tea bags
2 Cups Boiled Water
1 Tbsp Honey, Raw
Ice (about 2 cups)
1/2 Lemons, Thick Slices

Directions

In a 32 oz mason jar brew tea for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and add honey and stir. Add ice to fill mason jar, leaving enough room for the  lemon. Add lemon and enjoy!.
