TGIF! This week's giveaway is a $50 gift card and Beets Don't Kale My Vibe tote from Sweetgreen

Founded in 2007, Sweetgreen is a destination for delicious food that’s both healthy for you and aligned with your values. Its offerings are wholesome (salads, wraps and yogurt made with fresh, organic and often local ingredients) and the business aims to have as small an ecological footprint as possible. Like Lithe Foods, they source local, organic ingredients from farmers they know and  trust.

For a chance to win, please leave a comment below telling us if you prefer a salad or wrap at lunchtime. One winner will be chosen at random on Monday, so you have three days to enter. One entry per person. Thank you and good luck!

Next week, Sweetgreen opens at 18th and Chestnut Streets and will be our Rittenhouse studio's new neighbor. Come try samples of its menu at our Center City studio on Monday, Oct. 12, starting at 6PM.



One week will make one strong. Measurements are never the only measure of success on our Escapes, but they sure are telling. More details to come on our Lithe Escape food and fitness philosophy.




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:

Bombshell Bowl
Organic quinoa, organic shaved radish, organic shaved turnip, baby red Russian kale with honey mustard vinaigrette

Radishes are at their peak in the spring, but often reappear at farmers' markets in the fall. With tangy-sweet honey mustard dressing, crunchy turnips, and fluffy quinoa, this bowl is refreshing, protein-packed, and totally aligned with your nutrition goals. Enjoy cold.  

One serving ($10)  
Available today  


Bone Broth

Lithe Bone Broth

Lithe Founder Lauren Boggi has sworn by bone broth for years. Now Lithe Foods makes it available to everyone so that they can reap its health benefits. 

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.

Available in two sizes:

The 16 oz. has two sippable servings ($10).

The 32 oz. has four 8 oz. servings or enough to make one large batch of soup ($16). 

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.



We're excited to announce that Lithe Method's Lauren Boggi is the official fitness expert and partner of Breast Health powered by breastcancer.org

Our goal is to inform, empower, and inspire women and girls to protect the health of their breasts. Join the movement on Instagram @gobreasthealthy and watch for our informative blog posts. Founder Marisa Weiss, MD kicks off breast cancer awareness month on the Today show. Tune in and ‪#‎gobreasthealthy‬!

CHARCOAL + CASHEW = <3 22 Sep 2015

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.
