Beat the Bloat with "Sassy Water"!

So today I came across this recipe for a bloat-busting, GI tract soothing, spruced-up water called "Sassy Water".  According to some of my fellow food and fitness lovers, this same recipe has been pinned and re-pinned on Pinterest as well.  I did some quick research and discovered this special "Sassy Water" is an essential part of the Flat Belly Diet plan, endorsed by Prevention Magazine.  I am not a fad dieter and have never been able to stick to the guidelines of any diet plan... however, I do like the idea of "Sassy Water"! The ingredients (cucumber, lemon, ginger, and spearmint) not only add a light and refreshing flavor to the water, they also help calm and soothe your GI tract to relieve bloating.  It's hydration... with additional health benefits!
