blackberry and sage water life is Messy Kitchen

Today's recipe is very especial, because it's from the new book of my dear Mayi Carles, Life is Messy Kitchen, the book came out this November 18th and I'm crasy waiting for my copy signed by Mayi, it is a super cute book with 115 recipes, they invite healthy food, being happy and reconnect with food, the  sence of humor and the adventure.

I love Mayi's book concept, she says "Happiness can’t be about deprivation, revealed only to the worthy who manage to strictly follow the Grapefruit Diet" and I completely agree, good eating is not about depriving yourself of tasty things, everithing is about balance, I can make 50 desserts a day for my business, but that doesn't mean that i'm going to eat them all, I could want to eat something sweet, but that doesn't mean I'm going to eat the whole nutella bottle, in this book she and her super team of magic fairies gives us super recipes to eat better.

This super recipe of blackberries and sage is super recipe, it's a great way to add flavor to your water and if you are anything like me, you won't be bored of drinking water, it would'nt have occurred to me to mix blackberry with sage, but it's great, so It is  highly recommended. Since I never stay still and I can never leave a recipe as it is, I added some blueberries that I had on the fridge and they added another layer, I loved how it turned out, so I'm sharing the recipe with you, hopping Mayi likes the mod I made of her recipe too.
