Lauren Boggi & TSH 3

I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to health and beauty, and I’ve adopted a few habits over the years that have become absolutely essential to my everyday.  Many of you guys tell me that I glow, and I know that these little game-changers have made a massive impact on my health and beauty.

Bone Broth is a miracle food. If you’re looking for a natural tonic for total-body health and beauty, bone broth is it. When I started including bone broth as a regular part of my diet, everything improved – my digestion, my immunity, energy levels, my skin, and my joints. I've even passed the ritual on to my mom who has had 7-level spinal fusion three years ago and she's never felt or looked better. 

I use this mineral-rich liquid gold as a base for soups, sauces, and veggies, and I love sipping it straight every morning – usually with a pinch of Jacobson's sea salt, fresh pepper and a pinch of turmeric or Lithe Spice. 

Alphaeon & Val Daily skin care systems have been total game changers for me. In just three weeks my fine lines disappeared. Alphaeon smoothes, plumps, and hydrates without a needle or a laser. It's the only product proven to enter the dermis without an injection. It's fragrance-free and not tested on animals. Sold exclusively at Dr. Bucky's

Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting has transformed my body. I’m stronger, lean, muscularly balanced, more flexible, and less stressed. Movement is my happy place and I love the intense slow sculpting and the empowering high-energy cardio workouts. There's nothing else like it. 

Mindfulness is so powerful. I make sure to take a time out every day, and I always feel a million times better because of it. I use the Buddhify app. It's so easy. Just grab your phone; you’ll be a better partner/mom/employee/boss or friend because of it. 

Eating Lithe goes far beyond weight loss.  Many issues like bloating, fatigue, stress and depression originate in the gut. Eating whole, healthy foods is a game-changer when it comes to boosting your health. Adding superfoods, smoothies, cold-pressed juice, probiotics, and fermented foods (like kimchi and kombucha) keeps me energized and healthy. 

Foam Rolling is a part of my everyday because stretching is never enough. I want to feel fluid, and rolling improves circulation, which preps my body for my workout and helps it recover afterward. Foam rolling also assists in breaking up trigger points (knots that limit range of motion), resuming normal blood flow and function to the muscle.  Releasing trigger points (knots) helps to reestablish proper movement patterns and pain free movement, and ultimately, enhances performance. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice.  

All Girl Getaways are immensely therapeutic. It's the ultimate re-charge. For me, getting away with girlfriends and hitting the reset button is hands down the best way of getting out of a rut. I return with a renewed sense of energy, purpose and independence. The empowering benefits of a girls getaway is what inspired me to create Lithe Escape. The effects and results are deep-rooted and long-lasting.

ACAI BOWL 18 Feb 2016


Our Lithe Foods Açai Bowl is a superfoods beauty bowl that is high in antioxidants, fiber and heart-healthy fats & thick enough to eat with a spoon.

What is Açai? Açai (ahh-sah-ee) is a berry grown in Central and South America, Brazil and Peru. If you’ve never tasted an açai berry, the flavor is like  a cranberry, raspberry, and raisin mixed together to form a new berry breed. 

Açai is a beauty food - it's low in sugar and rich in antioxidants, minerals, vitamins (Vitamin C for collagen production and free radical damage), and healthy fats (for skin elasticity, moisture retention, and healthy hormone production). Açai berries contain anti-inflammatory benefits, cholesterol lowering benefits, and anti-cancer benefits as with many other fruits and vegetables. 

Ingredients: Organic Açai, Banana, Blueberry, Grain-Free Granola, Maple Syrup. $12



This winter parsnip and apple soup warms our bones, keeps our bellies flat, and burns fat. Bisque is one of those red flag foods that you should stay away from if you're eating Lithe, right? But not all bisques are created equal. Our raw soup is organic, creamy, healthy, less than 100 calories, and 100 percent plant-based. And with 3 grams of soluble fiber per serving, it's rich, filling, gluten and dairy-free, and fantastic hot or cold. The real star is the parsnip, which provides a high level of vitamin C (vitamin C is a must for building and maintaining collagen) and vitamin A (which is also a vital nutrient for healthy skin and hair). 

One serving ($8)

Parsnip Facts & Benefits:

  • Eating parsnips regularly can treat a variety of health problems and conditions such as asthma, arthritis, pneumonia, ulcers, hay fever, and kidney damage
  • It is recommended that you eat parsnips if you are on a weight loss program or want to reduce cellulite. Parsnips are an amazing fat burning food
  • Parsnips can boost immunity and aid healing and recovery during the convalescence period after an illness
  • Eating parsnips can stimulate growth in children
  • The soluble fiber in parsnips is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels and lowering cholesterol
  • Pregnant women are encouraged to eat parsnips due to their high folate content
  • The anti-inflammatory properties of parsnips improve respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma
  • Just a cup of parsnips every day meets 14 percent of your daily recommended intake of potassium. Potassium is essential for preventing stiff joints and swollen muscles as well as boosting energy levels
  • The niacin and vitamin C in parsnips help to improve the digestive and nervous system
  • The antioxidant properties of parsnips can fight cancers by reducing the number of harmful free radicals in the body


There’s a certain sense of accomplishment that comes with Lithing and getting in two servings of fruit and vegetables before 10AM. Our superfood Green Detox Bowl is a nutritional powerhouse. With a combination of fresh spinach, bananas, local honey, hemp seeds, goji berries, and coconut, this smoothie bowl is packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It's fresh and creamy and perfect for breakfast or lunch. 


Having such a nutrient packed meal so early on in the day, honestly sets you up for the best day possible. For those of you who are new to these delicious breakfast bowls, what they are is a condensed smoothie; Basically you use less liquid to blend the smoothie, making it far thicker and creamier blending it into almost a yoghurt consistency. This makes for a really hearty breakfast, that’s bursting with nutrients, and gives you the most amazing amount of energy. - See more at: http://www.naturallysassy.co.uk/recipes/green-smoothie-bowl#sthash.aFedNoEM.dpuf

BONE BROTH 5 Nov 2015

Screen Shot 2015-11-04 at 1.49.00 PM
Bone Broth


A fresh batch of bone broth has arrived.  We will only keep 2 quarts at each studio, and the rest will be kept in deep freeze.  Our broth sells out quickly, so please speak to our front desk staff or call 215-545-5144 if you'd like some set aside for you.

With 69 calories, 4g fat, 6g protein, and 0 carbs per cup, this simple superfood is the equivalent of liquid gold. Lithe's bone broth is made from organic grass-fed beef marrow bones, chicken feet, and mirepoix so that it's packed with nutrients. Lauren starts each day with a cup of bone broth and says it plays a major role in keeping her and her family healthy. The amino acids and other healing compounds released in the simmering process also promote joint health, which makes bone broth a smart sip for Lithers. And if you want to feel and look your best this fall, bone broth also helps out in the beauty department. It's rich in collagen, which supports and strengthens the structural matrix of hair, skin, and nails.

32 oz. has four 8 oz. servings or enough to make one large batch of soup ($16). We recommend keeping your bone broth frozen!  Divide batch into 4 servings, and freeze, or freeze 2 and keep 1 or 2 servings in the fridge. Bone broth has a fridge life of 4-5 days but will keep indefinitely in the freezer.  

Key nutrients in Lithe bone broth and their benefits:

Cartilage: Used as a supplement for treating joint pain and eases inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract.

Bone marrow: Helps increase blood cell production and strengthens the immune system.

Amino acid:  Key in the production of glucose and enhances gastric secretion of soft tissue and wound healing.

Collagen and gelatin:  Aid in the formation and repair of cartilage, help bone healing, and facilitate digestion and assimilation of proteins. 

Calcium, phosphorus and magnesium: Help sustain healthy bones and muscles; facilitate proper nerve transmission and gland function; generate energy in the body.
