Sassy Water ***

I was pretty skeptical about this one, since I'm definitely not a fan of cucumbers.  I actually really like it, though.  The water tastes so refreshing, and the mint covers up some of the cucumber taste.  I can't say how it works as far as weight loss, but for taste and meeting your daily water requirements, it's definitely a winner.

8 ½ cups water
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 medium cucumber, sliced thin
1 large lemon, sliced thin
12 mint leaves

Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher and refrigerate overnight.
The next morning, strain and drink all 8 ½ cups throughout the day.
Repeat for 4 days in a row...trying your best avoid any other beverages (coffee, soda, alcohol, etc.)
