Sassy Water from My Baking Heart

Refreshing, bright and pure. This water is a component to Prevention Magazine’s Flat Belly Diet. And while I don’t follow this plan, anything that tastes great and is good for me, too… I’m all for.

The instructions call for you to drink the entire two liters throughout the course of the day, thus fulfilling your suggested amount of daily water intake. It helps maintain your body’s proper fluid balance, guards against water retention & bloat and it’s perfect for a Summer cool-down. So, pull up a chair and have a sip!

My son is getting married in 3 weeks–I could use some belly help! Maybe if I drink gallons of it????
What have I got to lose right?

Are spearment different than mint? Can’t say I’ve ever seen spearment. Thanks for sharing.

I already place cucumbers in my water. All the extras sound yummy and refreshing!
