EATING LITHE L.A. 29 Oct 2014

LA-1

Whenever I go to the West Coast, I tend to eat my way through the day. There are so many fresh, healthy options! Some of my favorites: Malibu Seafood's fresh fish, Lemonade Venice's casual fast food, L&E's oysters, Moon Juice's cold-pressed juice and nut milk, Alimento's Cali-Italian, Gjelina, anything from True Food Kitchen (the crudites are to die for), and Sugarfish's sushi. 

Do any of you have L.A. favorites? Please share!

YELLOW CAKE 26 Oct 2014

Yellow cake

This really isn't a recipe, but I had to share this incredibly easy-to-make super-decadent, yet healthy dessert/snack. If you're wondering just how yummy this is, my 3-year-old with a sweet tooth calls it "cake" (it's the yogurt). It's simple to throw together and satisfies a sweet tooth in a healthy way.  

Ingredients:  Noosa coconut yoghurt and fresh pineapple

Directions: Cut pineapple and top each piece with a dollop of yogurt.

BECAUSE I'M PERFECT. 16 Oct 2014

Lauren & Mars

Today I'm rapping about body love and words of wisdom from a toddler...

I think my three year old son Mars is soo cute. Like, I could just eat him up. When I ask him why he's so cute, he responds, "Because I'm perfect!" (!!!!?????!!). Now, I've never told him that he's perfect, but he truly believes that he is. And, as his mom, I really feel like I'm doing something right, which is not always the case. You can imagine my reaction when I heard that for the first time. I mean, how fantastic is that? And, he inspires me – my little boy has not one ounce of negativity in his head.  He really loves himself and thinks he's just perfect. We all should have that high level of self-love, right?

Many of us are finishing up our Fall Transformation (myself included), and some of us are just getting back into the studio, post-summer. Recently, there's been a lot of talk about our Stop Bitch moments, body image, what other Lithers do, do too much of, or don't do enough of, and what it means to be healthy and empowered. But behind all of this talk about being Lithe lies the heart of what it means to be healthy: Loving the skin you’re in, treating yourself right, and feeling empowered to question, challenge, and redefine your own self-view of beauty and wellness.  Loving the body you have, and working to improve your health and head is so important. In fact, many of you are already super-confident and intuitive. Here are a few emails that I've received over the past few weeks: 


Being healthy shouldn’t be about appearance, it should be about health.  

I'm all about improving myself and becoming healthy and fit.  Almost everyone I know should spend more time working out, and making lifestyle changes.  It's everything! 

Once I let go of trying to be thin and focused on the idea of loving my body, I became healthier.

This Fall Transformation has taught me so much about myself and my level of commitment.  I've never felt so great about myself.  I feel like me again.  I'm unstoppable!

Here’s what I think about loving your body. As women, we all struggle with self-confidence. There are always those little things we wish we could change about our bodies. Whether it’s wishing we had a six-pack, more defined arms,  or thinner thighs.  My approach has always been accept it, or act to change it. Because of this, I have always used my "imperfections" as motivation to work harder. Over the years I've learned to love and respect my body for what it is because it has been so good to me. It's gotten me through almost ten injury-free years of Lithe and allows me to burn the candle at both ends and work hard when I need to. It has given me my Mars, it takes me on walks every day, helps me sail a 50-foot catamaran every summer, and feels so strong invincible when I Lithe. 

And, in exchange, I treat my body the very best that I can. I live a healthy, balanced lifestyle by staying active and eating well. I let it rest at night, take Epsom baths and stretch to keep it flexible. On the weekends I have fun, give in to my cravings and just let go. 

So, this fall, as you're working towards your best you, remember that it does not mean that you're working to fit into a particular mold. Not a certain weight, size, or shape: YOU are perfect. Make that your mantra! You're working towards building that confidence muscle – which is the best possible way to learn to love the skin you’re in.

LITHE SPICED SHRIMP 7 Oct 2014

Shrimp

Spiced Shrimp

I love Spiced Shrimp – it's a simple, healthy, and quick dinner that everyone loves and can be paired with any side or tossed into a salad.  Shrimp is a great Eating Lithe option: four ounces of shrimp have approximately 24 grams of protein and only 112 calories. Shrimp also provides selenium, B12 and D vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids, so eat up!

Lithe Spice No.1 (available in-studio on Thursday!) is the secret to this simple dish.  Since the shrimp only cooks for three minutes on the grill,  I plan ahead by prepping my shrimp in the morning. 

Spiced Shrimp:
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Lithe Spice No.1
1 garlic clove, minced
Cooking spray of your choice
 
Preparation
To prepare shrimp, combine 1 teaspoon EVOO, garlic, Lithe Spice No.1, and shrimp in a large bowl; toss well.  Thread about 4-5 shrimp onto each of 6 (8-inch) skewers.  Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes or until done.  Don't have a grill?  Sautee shrimp in a pan for 5 to 7 minutes, until they turn pink

THE GREEN FRESHIE! 29 Sep 2014

Freshie

It's not a smoothie and not a juice – it's a Freshie!  I've been searching for a truly natural sweetener for years and I feel like I struck gold on Friday when the Microgreen Queen introduced me to popcorn shoots. Popcorn shoots are microgreens (some are sprouted) that are sweet like sugar cane nectar.

Whip this one up in your high speed blender. Things are about to get really fresh...

Ingredients: Ice, 1 cup coconut water, 1 handful of spinach, 1 Asian pear, 4-6 popcorn shoots (to taste)

Instructions: Blend in your high speed blender until smooth.

RIGHT NOW... 26 Sep 2014

Rightnow-5

 1. Ban.do canvas totes are bright and durable.  2. New Balance 711 Mesh Trainer is so comfortable and great for Lithe with its super flexible forefoot. 3. RMS beauty oil keeps my skin glowy and protected as the weather turns cooler.  4. Lithe's kale & cashew wholefoods Lithe Bar is perfect post-workout (coming soon from Napa, CA). The Beacon by Beacon & Lively is awesome - Pink means that my sitter is texting. Love being smart without being a smart-phone zombie.
