The new juice that everyone is going gaga for is our Charcoal Lemonade! You all went crazy for it after trying it in our four-day Eating Lithe detox, so we'll be keeping it in stock on a semi-regular basis.
Activated charcoal is made by burning a source of carbon (we use coconut shells) at a high temperature, which removes oxygen. Many claim that activated charcoal essentially becomes a natural magnet for toxins (pesticides, dioxins on fish from contaminated waters, and even neurotoxins from mold) in your digestive tract. Activated charcoal is nothing new. Your Brita water is filled with it and hospitals use it for patients who have been exposed to toxins or who have overdosed on drugs.
There's many benefits to consuming it (in moderation, of course). It helps the body detox from processed food and environmental pollution, relieves digestive issues like gas and bloating, and gets rid of bad breath and body odor. Plenty of people also swear that activated charcoal is a hangover cure and love its anti-aging and beautifying effects.
Ingredients: Activated coconut charcoal, lemon, alkaline water, local maple syrup, pink Himalayan sea salt Price: $10
Are you detoxing with us? Have you tried your Lithe Foods Day 1 Rose + Goji Superfood Smoothie? I make this smoothie regularly and I'm so happy that we were able to include it in our detox plan. Rose and goji berries create a powerful balancing elixir for the heart that has the potential to open you to the vibe of happiness and love. Enjoy and read up on the benefits.
Rose is considered a heart tonic in the ancient system of Ayurveda. It soothes the heart and emotions and bestows balance. Rose also has a beautifying effect, soothing inflammation of the skin and increasing its glow. When buying rose water for culinary use, make sure that it's high quality and preferably organic. Most roses are heavily sprayed with pesticides.
Goji berries belong to a class of Chinese herbs that are known as “superior tonics.” This means that they can be taken regularly over long periods of time to preserve health and youthfulness. Goji is known as the “happy berry” and reportedly gives a sense of well-being and calm. Goji’s list of benefits are astounding. Heart health and beautiful, radiant skin are among them. Goji berries are also nutritional power houses that have more iron than spinach, more vitamin C than oranges, and more beta carotene than carrots. They contain a host of trace minerals, B vitamins, and antioxidants. And they are a complete protein (yes!).

1. We're building our Lithe Foods pantry and are excited to offer you some of the more obscure items that I've been using in my smoothies/tea/soups for years now. Ashwagandha is an everyday staple for me. 2. I'm counting the days until Lithe Escape and loving this Harvey Faircloth Irie sweatshirt. 3. Dr-Cow's Aged cashew & blue green algae is my favorite cheese alternative. 4. Drill Design x Mizutori's Geta Sandal in nude (and black!) is supportive and absolutely perfect for spring. 5. Ro's Argan Body Conditioner by Lush is like a super-hydrating shower smoothie for your skin. It saves you time, smells divine, and there's no need for lotion!

So, I just passed the halfway point in my challenge to my 40th birthday. I'm 22 days in. Since January 1st, I have taken 25 classes, taught 25 classes, and trained to teach three more. My body is a bit fatigued, but overall I feel great.
A. RBG Cosmetics blush polish is the best, most perfect nude. B. I'm in love with (and have been living in) Madewell's sweet cropped Je t'aime sweatshirt C. Free People Movement Chasse Bra and Buddhi Short are feminine, supportive, fresh, and perfect together in-studio. D. Maple Water is a nice alternative to coconut water and contains only half the sugar! E. Mizon Returning Starfish eye cream is by far the best I've ever used.

As a working mom, I try to spend as much of my free time as possible with Mars. That means I don’t have as much time for personal maintenance as I used to, even though I need it more than ever now! I am lucky that Mars still occasionally naps during the day on the weekends, so I try to make the most of that time for me time. Give this facial a try this weekend, post-holiday.
Ingredients: This is super-easy! Just mix approx 1 tablespoon pure (preferably raw) honey and 1 tablespoon cold-pressed, unrefined coconut oil.
Do: Draw a warm bath, and apply the mixture to your face. Honey is antiseptic and fights the breakouts you sometimes get when you're tired. Coconut oil is so hydrating (I also use it on Mars's skin). Leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse it off. It leaves my face smooth and glowing.
