Sassy water uses lemon, cucumber, ginger, and mint to soothe your intestinal tract.

Sassy Water

There is really nothing I hate more than being nauseated – which makes sense, as there’s not really anything I love more than eating. Those two are a bit at odds. Luckily for me, I don’t experience nausea* very frequently.

*Quick sidenote: Some of you may or may not know this, but I’m kind of into grammar. I wouldn’t say I’m a stickler, because I like having friends, but I wanted to make a note on how to properly say you are experiencing nausea:

  • If we’re getting technical, saying “I feel nauseous” is incorrect. ” The definition of nauseous is “causing nausea or disgust.” A good way to think of the word “nauseous” is replacing it with the word “nauseating.” If you’re meaning to say “I feel nauseating,” then go ahead and say it.
  • If you’re trying to say you feel sick to your stomach, the correct way to say it would be “I feel nauseated.”
  • Never say nauseousness. It’s not a word.
  • If this all confuses you, maybe you should stick with “I feel sick” (but don’t say badly… that’s another discussion for another time). OR maybe you should just keep on being you because only like 0.01% of the population is ever going to care if you use nauseous or nauseated.

Now that I’ve gone off on that needless rant, let’s get back to sassy water and the point of this post. I learned about sassy water back in my fad diet stage of life. The specific fad diet will remain nameless here, as I have strong opinions on fad diets and can’t justify advocating them for them on my blog, but I will say this drink stuck with me as a very effective way to calm your stomach, reduce bloating, and overall feel more refreshed.

With my recent bout of nausea (which lasted about 2 weeks… ugh…), sassy water was a lifesaver. I wasn’t keeping anything down, and this was about the only thing that made me feel better.

So, whether you’re feeling nauseated (ahem), bloated, or just want to be fancy and class up your water game, sassy water is here for you. It’s recommended to make it and let it sit overnight to let the flavors really infuse in the water, but I’ve often taken a swig right after making it cause I’m just too excited. The reason this recipe works:

  • Ginger is a time-tested relief for nausea and general gastrointestinal problems.
  • Cucumbers & lemons provide a refreshing taste without extra added calories, as well as antioxidants and Vitamin C.
  • Fresh mint aids in digestion and can soothe the stomach in the case of indigestion or inflammation.

Convinced yet? Let’s do this.
