sassywater.jpgIt’s actually time for refreshing drinks here in the Northeast. Who knew? Well, I stumbled across this recipe whihc might be just the thing–it sounds delightful and uplifting. From Prevention.com. It’s part of their unfortunately named “Flat Belly Diet” (bellies are not meant to be completely flat! They’re soft–even with a sixpack–and that’s ok!). I found the actual recipe on FoodieMama.com. You can drink it even if you are not aiming to shrink your belly.
