Lithe Bone Broth

Lithe Founder, Lauren Boggi has sworn by the total-body benefits of bone broth for years, and now Lithe Foods is making it available to everyone so that they can reap the benefits of health and wellness. 

This simple superfood is basically 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 extra-rich in collagen and nutrients.  Lauren starts each day with a cup of bone broth and she says it has played 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, making bone broth a smart sip for avid Lithers. And, if you're wanting to feel and look your best this fall, bone broth can help you out in the beauty department. Bone broth is rich in collagen, which supports and strengthens the structural matrix of hair, skin, and nails.

Lithe Bone Broth will be sold in 2 sizes: 16 oz ($10) which gives you 2 sip-able servings, OR 32 oz. ($16) which gives you four, 8oz single servings, OR 1 serving if you're opting to cook with it and make a batch of soup. 

Key nutrients in Lithe bone broth and their benefits:

Cartilage: used as a supplement for treating joint pain; improves inflammatory conditions of the gastrointestinal tract.

Bone marrow: helps increase blood cell production; strengthens the immune system.

Amino acids: key in the production of glucose, enhancing gastric secretion of soft tissue and wound healing.

Collagen & gelatin: aids in the formation and repair of cartilage; help in bone healing; 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

LITHED-UP BOWL 29 Sep 2015

Moon Goddess Bowl MGB

We love Ian Brendle (Green Meadow Farm) and Z Food Farm's produce. So crisp, flavorful, and clean. Each week our soups, bowls, and salads change as we bring you seasonal produce straight from the farm. Here's what's available now:

Moon Goddess Bowl
Organic black lentils, grilled organic eggplant, grilled organic zucchini, grilled organic squash with Lithed-up tomato sauce and parsley

This grounding, wheat-free, Italian cuisine-inspired bowl reminds us of the best eggplant parm dishes we've eaten in restaurants and at friend's tables. But the calorie and fat total rings in far lower in this Lithed-Up version. The clean flavors of grilled eggplant and zucchini, along with our tomato sauce are more than satisfying. Black beluga lentils are high in fiber, low in sugar, and rich in protein. This dish is simple, delicious, so good for you, and totally aligned with the harvest moon
Enjoy warm or cold.  
One serving ($12)

Escape Packing-1589

Now that Lithe Escape is upon us, it’s time for a refresher on minimalist packing. As much as we love feeling ready for anything, lugging around an overpacked bag or checking luggage is no fun. Cutting down on what goes inside your weekend bag has everything to do with staying calm, cool, comfortable, and confident.

Wonder what to bring? You won't need much! We'll be in Nicaragua for five days and you'll spend the majority of your time barefoot and in a bathing suit or in exercise gear. We wake, we eat, we Lithe, we chill in the sun, we eat, we chill or walk to town, we Lithe, we eat, and then chill some more (it's heaven).

People are always shocked to learn that Lithe Escape creator Lauren Boggi is a super-light carry-on only packer. She finds it freeing to travel with so little. Here's how she does it: 

  • Think small: Starting with a compact suitcase instantly limits how much I can bring. 
  • Don’t underestimate the power of a packing list: The key word here is basic. Sports bras, swimsuits, cover-ups, underwear, socks, workout shorts, loose pants, a warm layer for evenings, a chic go-with-everything maxi dress, and sneakers. Follow your list without exception. It’ll help you not go overboard. 
  • Be reasonable: Ignore the voice in your head trying to convince you that you absolutely need four pairs of shoes, heels, a hair dryer and 12 tops for a five-day trip. You don't and the practical you knows it!
  • Roll your clothes instead of folding them: It minimizes wrinkles and frees up a ton of space for other traveling necessities.
  • Be basic: Stick to basic, neutral colors and light fabrics.
  • Essentials: Passport, sunscreen, yoga mat, bathing suits that you can lounge, swim and Lithe in, sunglasses, cover-up, sneakers, flip-flops, a good book, and cell phone charger. 
  • Choose your accessories wisely: Pack a scarf, hat, statement necklace, and a classic pair of flat sandals. When in doubt, these things will come in handy.
  • Recycle: Unless you’ve been hiking all day or rolling in the sand, there’s a good chance you can use certain wardrobe pieces more than once. If you wore your maxi dress and cute espadrilles for dinner, turn that sundress into a beach cover-up for another day. My rule is that every article of clothing should work with at least two outfits. I love tunics that work as cover-ups, dresses, tops and nightgowns. My daytime black tunic often works over leggings, and then I can dress it up with jewelry or a scarf at night.

CHARCOAL + CASHEW = <3 22 Sep 2015

Black N White

Seriously, this must be what heaven tastes like, right? This week, these two cult favorites are in studios and online, and are perfect for your Pope-cation. Lithe's organic cashew milk helps boost metabolism, supports energy production, is naturally low in carbohydrates, high in healthy fats, rich in protein and fiber, and is cholesterol-free. We love it in our latte and granola and it's great for crushing those late night cravings. Lithe's raw, organic cold-pressed charcoal lemonade is mouthwatering, a bit grainy, good for digestion and assists in detoxification (aka the hangover helper).

8 WAYS TO FALL {REPOST} 15 Sep 2015



Fall is my favorite season and we as humans are just like the seasons. I look at fall as a time for personal harvest. September and October are similar to the new year. It’s also just like heading back to school. Like the ebb and flow of nature's seasonal changes, fall is a time to reflect on our lives and examine where we are with personal accomplishments (bucket list, anyone?). 

Come September, I often ask myself what I need, what’s missing, or what needs to change. With all this change and incentive to push the restart button, it’s a great time to get back on the horse with your Lithe/fitness routine, and create healthy seasonal habits for the holiday season and upcoming winter months. 

Here are eight ways to make the most of the season. And who knows? This year, you might be your Lithest before the holidays roll around.

1.  Earlier to bed, later to rise
There never seem to be enough hours in the day, but if you add 30 minutes to your usual wakeup time and crash 30 minutes earlier each evening, the extra hour of rest goes a long way in helping you adjust to shorter, darker days and the drastic decrease in temps here in the Northeast.

2. Nutrients in, garbage out
Break a sweat every day, cut out processed food, drink those Greenies, bust out the neti pot, use essential oils, brush your skin, and drink more water.

3. Fall back a bit (but not a ton)
We take care of matching Lithe schedules to the seasons, but it’s your job to slightly reduce the intensity and frequency of your schedule. If you’ve been Lithing two times a day AND running or if you’ve been in the studio seven days a week, give your muscles an extra day of rest this season.

4. Breathe, sweat, shake, and wrap it up.
The Lithe breath is the foundation of your practice. It not only works the core, but releases excess toxins. Looking for other ways to release toxins? Wrap yourself up and sweat it out by wearing our calorie trashers during sculpting classes.

5. Enjoy (and winterize) your diet
Eat foods that are local and in season. Enjoy your local farmers' market, cook more, and grab Lithe Foods. Go apple, pear or pumpkin-picking with friends and family. Put these fruits and veggies on your grocery list: arugula, artichoke, broccoli, endive, beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, chard, chicory, cranberries, eggplant, fennel, garlic, kale, leeks, okra, pears, peppers, grapes, pomegranates, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, sweet potatoes, turnips, squash, zucchini.

6. Build your practice
Fall is the ideal time to build (or re-build) the foundation of your Lithe practice. Did you fall off the wagon this summer? Are you feeling less than motivated? Try your own nine-day challenge to focus on healthy eating, get back into the Lithe habit, and see serious results. Can't manage a challenge? Sign up for three classes a week, three weeks in advance, and try not to cancel under any circumstances. 

8. Give thanks
We have to keep in mind that very little is accomplished by ourselves. Be grateful for all of the people who support, guide, and challenge us. Remember that the grass isn’t always greener and that there are people in the world that would give anything to be in your shoes right now.

Start off 2016 right by joining Lithe for a long weekend with Lauren Boggi that's designed to inspire confidence, reset eating habits, and transform your body (we're talking visible results). During Lithe WKND at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach, Lauren shares her whole life whole body approach to wellness with a multifaceted program complete with sweat, sunshine, and sustenance.


Lithe Method is Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting® (CCS). CCS is our proprietary blend of cardiovascular, cheer-based conditioning and resistance training created by former USC cheerleader and Lithe’s Creator Lauren Boggi. Named one of the nation’s “top core toning workouts” by Self and a “top party-ready workout for dance lovers” by Glamour, Lithe utilizes cheer-based conditioning to sculpt muscles, produce a high cardio burn, and reduce fat zones in 60 minutes.


Our WKND experience incorporates not only your cardio burn and strength training, but also your balanced mindset and lean, seasonal nutrition. In the morning our workout will be grounded with a focus on sculpting your muscular foundation. Our afternoon classes will be high energy and produce a cardio burn. Each WKND workout is 75 minutes and you’ll find the schedule below. We can’t wait to spend Lithe WKND with you in Miami!
