Sassy Water - My First Change

I don't drink. Never have. And I'm not talking about just alcohol (although I've never drank that either). I'm referring to water. I drink tea, coffee, and Diet Coke. I can go days without ever having a full glass of water. Since the body is mostly water, I'm thinking I need to drink.

So my first step on the Road to Health is going to be to drink water. I've realized in the past that if I drink a glass first thing in the morning, before coffee, then I'm more thirsty the rest of the day. It's like I have an inner thirst button that gets activated.

My first change will be to make Sassy Water - a step between my flavored teas and plain water. Sounds wonderfully refreshing and is supposed to calm your GI tract.


• 2 litres/3½ pints water
• 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
• 1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
• 1 medium lemon, thinly sliced
• 12 mint leaves

Combine all ingredients in a large jug, chill in the refrigerator and let the flavors blend overnight. Drink it all in one day for at least four days, making a fresh batch each day.

Here's to good health! (glug, glug, glug...)


  1. Drinking water definitely helps me, but I tend to get out of the routine, too, if I'm not careful.

  2. This morning, I filled up a thermos first thing. I have yet to finish it and it's 7 PM. I will though, I promise!

    Thanks for stopping by, Hope.
