The Pitcher of Perfect Health! Get sloshed on my daily drink concoction called “Janet’s Anti-Bloatation Creation.” Beat the bloat, burn some fat, detoxify and energize…feel great and look great! Here’s what you need: One jug of pure, filtered water, sliced cucumber, about 10-15 mint leaves (or parsley), slices of lemon & orange, a small cube of sliced, fresh ginger root and a couple of pinches of cayenne pepper to rev your body’s fat-burning engine! This combo makes your water taste deelish and contains ingredients that are diuretic and that help flush toxins and fat from the body. I keep the jug covered in the fridge and drink throughout the day. Water you waiting for?

    Just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying your show, “Eat, Shrink and Be Merry”. I cycle on my stationary bike to each episode.

    I cook and bake most of my own food for myself, my husband and my senior mom, and try to keep us all healthy. Lots of your suggestions are things I do on a regular basis. I do love your ideas and recipes!

    Would love if you’d check out my blog, “Dig in, Flynn!” where you’ll find some of MY creations.

    All the best!

    Hi Janet
    I was going to make a pitcher of this and keep it overnight, then straining and transferring it to a 2L bottle to take to work the next day. Would that do? By the way, I have made numerous recipes in your Collection cookbook and love everyone of them.

    • Janet | May 13, 2013 at 2:32 pm

      Yes, Pat, you can easily keep it overnight and then transfer to another take-away container. I’m sure you tried that already!

    Hi Ladies:
    Long time fan!!!
    I love this water recipe – my rings fit again!!! I have half the people at work drinking this – I even have a pitcher on my desk (I don’t like cold water).
    Thanks for all your healthy tips.

    I love looking at your recipes. My problem is onions ,unless I kill them with cooking I react to them and I absolutly do not like any peppers, red , green or other wise. Do you have any alternatives to these in a recipe. Thanks.

    i love ur cookbooks just wondering when there will be another one for us to buy?!

  7. Danielle | June 9, 2013 at 10:48 pm

    Hello Janet and Greta,

    I have watched your show for many years on Food Network Canada and love it!

    I received your “Looneyspoons Collection” cookbook as a birthday gift. So far, I have tried eight recipes and all of them were great!

    I like how for your chicken recipes you do not just use chicken breast. I love dark meat. The balsamic chicken and honey mustard drumsticks are fantastic. I am cooking my way through your cookbook.

    I am a WW member. Thank you for putting the full nuturtion info so I can calculate the points. I have been eating your recipes these last two weeks and have been losing between 1-3 pounds each week. I am eating great food and losing weight. Now that is what I call a win-win!

    Thank you for these great recipes!

    Kind Regards,

      Congratulations on your weight loss! So glad you’re enjoying our recipes.

    I wanted to like this but I cannot stand the taste of cucumber, any suggestions?

    • Christel | September 11, 2013 at 3:14 pm


      I find you don’t taste the cucumber, you taste the lemon and cayenne more, but not too much.


  9. Colleen | June 13, 2013 at 8:02 pm

    Would love to Pin this recipe to Pinterest. Don’t see a spot to show that it can be pinned??

  10. Tendai | September 6, 2013 at 2:16 am

    I wanted to thank you. Thanks to this water, i no longer have swelling hands and feet after walking. I also feel warmth in my body I used to be so cold natured. I am such a fan and excited for my changes for the healthier. I am eating, shrinking and merry

  11. Annie | September 10, 2013 at 8:38 pm

    Hello Janet, I just wanted to know if there is an ingredient missing? In the recipe you mention slices of lemon & orange, a small cube of sliced,…
    A small cube of “What: sliced?



    • Janet | September 11, 2013 at 5:54 pm

      Hi Annie,

      I’m not sure why the ingredient list is cut off on your display. It’s not on mine. Weird! Anyway, it’s a small cube of sliced, fresh ginger root and then a pinch of cayenne pepper. First ingredients were lemon, orange slices, mint leaves and slices of cucumber. Enjoy!

  12. Tandi | September 11, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    Do you think a pregnant woman is safe to drink this?
    Thank you :)

    • Janet | September 11, 2013 at 5:51 pm

      Hi Tandi,

      I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to drink this unless your doctor has specifically told you not to consume citrus, mint, cucumber or ginger. Ginger might actually help with morning sickness!

    Hi Janet,

    Just wanted to tell you that I finally got a new fridge and then found the perfect leak-proof, BPA-free jug to make your spa water in. I have been drinking it for about 4 days now (before every meal and at bedtime) and have lost about 3 pounds and definitely feel less bloated. My sandals feel much looser this morning! I have also taken it to work in a re-usable, insulated container and that worked out well. I love drinking water again! Of course, I’ve been peeing like a pregnant mare, but I guess that’s a good thing. :)

    Question: How many times, or for how many days, can one refill the jug and keep using the same lemons and cucumber?

    • Janet | September 11, 2013 at 5:49 pm

      Christel, so happy you’re liking the Anti-Bloat water. Tasty, huh? I would definitely change the ingredients after a couple of fill-ups. Most of the nutrients will have leached out by then, and you don’t want things to become rancid. Fresh is best! -Janet

      • Christel | September 20, 2013 at 1:17 pm

        Thanks for the answer Janet. And the water is very tasty, even with the cayenne. It’s almost addictive. I have told 2 friends at work and 5 other friends and sent them the link to this site. I’m sure they are all enjoying your water too! :)

  14. Jennifer | October 21, 2013 at 7:46 pm


    I love this recipe but I don’t love cayenne so I alternate using it with turmeric. It works well for me and it’s one way to squeeze in another healthy spice.

    Thanks for all the great tips!

  15. Sue Demczyna | November 20, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    What size jug do you use and what brand of water? Could you use tap water? We have a well and our water tastes great.

    • Greta Podleski | November 28, 2013 at 1:43 pm

      I’m sure your well water would be fine. We don’t use bottled water, we use filtered water from a home filtration system :) My jug holds about 10 cups of water.

  16. Lauri | December 26, 2013 at 1:59 pm

    Would clementines or other citrus
    work in this recipe or does it have to be oranges?

    • Janet | February 7, 2014 at 3:55 pm

      Lauri, any citrus fruit you like would be good in this recipe. I find grapefruit is really good! -Janet

  17. mary | March 25, 2014 at 4:55 pm

    is there an exact recipe for this

  18. Alicia | May 21, 2014 at 10:08 pm

    I miss your show on Food Network. Tried a few of the recipes and use then today and I am going to try this one now :)

  19. nadine | April 6, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    HI. Is there a substitution for the cucumber? I HATE cucumber but would love to try this.

  20. Christine | June 26, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    How many cups of this would you drink in a day.

    • Janet | June 27, 2015 at 2:28 pm

      Christine, you can drink as many cups as you like! Most people don’t drink enough water, and this is a tasty way to get them to hydrate. Don’t keep the same water in the jug for more than two days. Enjoy!
