Add a little sassy into your day!

5 Sep

Summer is unofficially over but that doesn’t mean we should give up on looking summer stunning!  In my constant battle to stay healthy and fit I have found that I honestly don’t drink enough water.  To me, its boring and blah and I would much rather drink coconut water with a splash of pineapple.  Unfortunately, it is $2.99 each and it would cost me a fortune to stay as hydrated as I need to stay healthy.  So instead I found an alternative.  It does entail buying a few ingredients but it will last all week and it is SO worth it.  This water is appropriately named “Sassy Water”.  Why?  Because it is sassy.  It tastes delicious and makes my mouth water just thinking about it.  Sassy water is a combination of fresh cucumber, ginger, mint leaves and lemon.  The cucumber gives it a cool crisp taste and the ginger, mint and lemon all aid in proper digestion.  You will love the taste and that my friends, is a win win situation.

Staying hydrated keeps you on track mentally and physically to staying fit.  Your body won’t want all those nasty (but sometimes yummy) carbs when your body is full of what it needs most.  Water.  Make a batch and enjoy ice cold!
