As soon as the weather turns cold I make breakfast quinoa. Not only is it healthy and full of protein and super-foods, it really hits the spot post-Lithe. I prepare my quinoa ahead of time on Sunday and store it in the fridge. It's great not having to worry about cooking healthy on Monday and Tuesday mornings.
This recipe is anti-aging and anti-inflammatory. Cacao, mesquite, and maca support recovery and the immune system and provide an energizing, caffeine-free boost. This recipe is especially delicious – coconut and banana meet cacao, cinnamon, and spice. Seriously, it's everything nice.
Lithe Spiced Breakfast Quinoa
1 cup coconut milk (I prefer Thai Kitchen. If you don't have it on hand, any milk will do)
1/2 cup quinoa (I use regular)
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Pinch of cinnamon (I love La Boite's Smoked Cinnamon N.18)
Pinch of Lithe Spice No.1
1-2 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
2-3 dates, sliced
1 banana, sliced
1/2 teaspoon each of cacao powder, mesquite, and maca (optional)
The secret to this super-fast and delish morning breakfast is to cook the quinoa ahead of time. To do this, simply take 1 cup of uncooked quinoa, rinse it, and then place it in a sauce pan with 2 cups of water (maintain that 1:2 ratio of quinoa to water). Bring it to a boil, cover and let simmer for about 10-15 minutes or until the quinoa has turned into spirals and becomes a bit translucent (don't let it get mushy). You can store cooked quinoa in the fridge for about 4 days.
1. Place sliced dates and bananas into a medium sauce pan and pour in coconut milk.
2. Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered.
3. Once the bananas and dates have softened (approximately 5-10 minutes), stir in cooked quinoa, cinnamon, Lithe Spice No.1, cacao, mesquite, maca, and shredded coconut.
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.
This soup is everything. The combination of miso*, roasted mushrooms, and bone broth is savory, earthy, rich and soul-soothing. Mushrooms are fantastic immune boosters, help prevent cancer, promote weight loss, and lower cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. Bone broth is liquid gold and adding medicinal mushrooms to it kicks it into high gear and gives you an extra boost of immunity during cold season.
*Miso and roasted mushrooms have a strong, savory flavor. You may want to shake your soup and add a little bit of water to mellow the flavor.

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)
