LITHE LATTE! 22 Apr 2015

Lithe Latte

I am definitely a latte lover, but what I don't love about my daily coffee order is the lack of nutrition, chemical sweeteners, and non-organic milk (hormones) filling up my cup. Rival Bros. espresso does the trick for that quick energy boost, but the side effects from those other not so healthy ingredients leave me feeling less than Lithe.  

So, we created a skinny latte that's better than what you can buy down the street. After weeks of taste tests and tweaking, I am super-excited to debut our Lithe Latte: a healthy, 100% vegan, lactose-free latte alternative that's chock-full of protein. 

Ingredients: Rival Brothers Whistle & Cuss espresso, cold-pressed cashew milk, and Green Meadow Farm local raw honey.   

Price: $10

10 TIPS FOR LONG-LASTING LITHE SUCCESS 9 Apr 2015

  Stretch

You're not alone. We all find excuses to not exercise. Life gets in everyone's way, but you CAN reach your goals and achieve the results you want. Here are 10 tips for when you just can't seem to get your rear in gear, get out of your own head, or stay motivated. 

1. Prioritize. No time because you spend hours on your smart phone? Turn that time into active time. In the long run, you'll be glad that you put your health first. Your body will thank you, too. 

2. Make a date with YOU. Schedule your workout just like you schedule doctor's appointments and dinner with friends and honor that commitment. It's just as important. 

3. Write it down. Tracking your progress and setbacks is eye-opening and effective. Record how long you worked out, what class you took, how you felt after. I always remind myself that I'm only one hour away from a good mood and that always motivates me to just do it on days when I need a boost. 

4. Stay positive. Your body hears everything your mind thinks!

5. Imagine it. Visualize your results!  Think about how you will look and feel after one month, six weeks, three months, six months, and one year. Results are the best motivational tool, so be sure to keep up with your own measurements and photos. 

6. Make yourself accountable. Going public with your story keeps you committed. 

7. Don't get discouraged. It's important to make a long-term commitment, even if it means going without noticable results for a week. Remember that you can't go wrong by Eating Lithe and working out regularly (especially when it's fun!). 

8. Find a few besties. Spend time with friends who also value a healthy lifestyle. You will benefit from sharing your stories about how fantastic you look, how strong you're becoming, how great you feel, and funny things that happen in the studio.

9. Reward yourself! I'm not talking about junk food. Each week that you accomplish your goals (maybe it's a going to a certain number of classes, taking a particular class with an instructor that you used to avoid like the plague, or becoming a consistent 6AMer or 5:30PMer.

Treat yourself to something that inspires you to stick with it, like a new pair of workout pants or a piece of jewelry. I recommend creating a point system. When you meet your goals, give yourself a point and record it. When you hit a certain amount of points, treat yourself to an activity that makes you feel great, such as a mani/pedi with friends or a massage.   

10. Travel Lithe. If you've Escaped with us, you know that Lithe travels really well! Get outside, have fun, and utilize your surroundings. Just make sure to send a Lithe on Location shot to us!

Spring has (finally) sprung! Spring is the season of new beginnings when nature awakens and the world comes alive. It’s also the time when our bodies come back to life after months of hibernation and heavy eating.

Changes in the weather effect our moods, our bodies, skin, hair, and the clothes we wear. I know that I feel different than I did just one week ago. Being that the pattern of weather really effects us, tapping into its rhythm can guide us towards better living.

Spring is the perfect time to be reborn physically (you're probably moving more these days) and to establish a self-care routine. Self-care doesn’t have to mean a luxurious day at the spa or come with a heavy price tag. It can be very simple. For example, I've been enjoying this Matcha Beauty Tonic every day with my phone and computer turned off.

I love matcha. It provides a delicious nutrient-rich energy boost before and after Lithe. And it has so many amazing benefits. It gives you the zip of coffee without raising your heart rate.  It also keeps you satiated and works as a fat blocker by blocking the ability of digestive enzymes to break down fat, a step necessary for fat to enter our cells. So instead of absorbing and storing the fat, it gets passed through the body. Matcha is also rich in chlorophyll, which alkalizes and detoxifes the blood. By increasing its pH, the body has a better chance of getting more oxygen and nutrients to cells for healing. I notice that my skin looks more radiant and I feel revitalized when I drink it.  

Spring Matcha Beauty Tonic

Ingredients
1/2 tsp. matcha
Coconut milk to taste
1 tsp. coconut oil
1/4 tsp. ashwagandha (adaptogen/stres relief)
1/4 tsp. reishi (superfood/immune booster)
1/4 tsp. mesquite (superfood/blood sugar stabilizer and protein)

Directions
Scoop matcha powder (start at 1/4 tsp. then adjust according to your taste), ashwagandha, reishi, and mesquite into a cup. Fill cup with hot water, and then whisk in the coconut oil and milk until it starts to froth. Cup the bowl in your hands before bringing to your mouth to sip and enjoy!

DIJON CAULIFLOWER 2 Apr 2015

Dijon
 
A few months ago Jordan surprised me by making this incredible roasted cauliflower recipe that he found it on Pinterest it has quickly become one of our favorite meals. Made with only a handful of ingredients, this super-filling, fiber-rich "side dish" is as striking to look at as it is easy to prepare. I've Lithed it up a by adding Lithe Spice No. 1 and reducing the cheese. It's so easy!  Just brush the cauliflower with mustard, then roast the cauliflower until it’s tender and finish with a topping of nutty parmesan and fresh herbs.
 
Ingredients
1 large head of cauliflower
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard (I prefer Maille)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 - 1 teaspoon of Lithe Spice No. 1
Handful of fresh parsley & rosemary, roughly chopped
1/4 (or less) cup grated parmesan

Directions
Position an oven rack in the bottom of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.  Then remove the leaves from the cauliflower, then trim the bottom of the head so the cauliflower sits flat on the baking sheet. Next, whisk together the oil, 2 tablespoons mustard, Lithe Spice, salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl.

Place the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and brush the entire outside and inside with the mustard-spice-oil mixture. Roast the cauliflower until nicely charred and tender (a long skewer inserted in the center of the cauliflower should pass through easily), 45 minutes to 1 hour. Let rest for a few minutes.  Meanwhile, combine the parsley + rosemary and parmesan in a small bowl. Brush the roasted cauliflower head all over the outside with the remaining 1 tablespoon mustard and sprinkle with the parmesan-herb mixture.  Cut the cauliflower and serve with a sprinkle of salt and any extra parmesan-herb mixture. Enjoy!
