So, I just passed the halfway point in my challenge to my 40th birthday. I'm 22 days in. Since January 1st, I have taken 25 classes, taught 25 classes, and trained to teach three more. My body is a bit fatigued, but overall I feel great.
Snow day fun day? Order our cold-pressed juice ahead of time and beat the rush! We're banding together with a group Liquid Lithe with two pick-up options: Order by Tuesday, 1/27 @12PM for Thursday, 1.29 pickup, or order by Saturday, 1.31 @12PM for Tuesday, 2.3 pickup.
This is a re-post from 2012, but it's a great Lithe Inside staple. Right now I love it with roasted veggies.
My sister-in-law, Laurie G is the queen of quinoa. She inspired me to make this lean, local and seasonal dish above. It's my latest, "Make a big batch recipe on a Sunday and it lasts until Wednesday" dish. Mars loves it too.
Cook and cool your quinoa and chicken. Then, mix in whatever you have in your CSA that particular week or what you can find in-season at your local farmers market. Right now I'm loving (above): quinoa, boiled chicken (I boil mine in low sodium, organic chicken broth), tomato, artichoke, avocado and cilantro. Top with a little salt, pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Satisfying, filling, lean and so good!

TGIF! At Lithe, we're all about making healthy choices without sacrificing any of the fun. Next up in our Lithe Foods Skinny Heathen collaboration with Art In The Age spirits is the super decadent Heaven & Earthy, which is made with Lithe's Cashew Milk and AITA's Root Liquor.
ATIA has recreated a organic, pre-temperance, alcoholic Root Tea. An herbal remedy made with sassafras, sarsaparilla, birch bark and other wild roots and herbs. It's interesting and earthy, but it's not Root Beer flavored vodka or a sickly sweet liqueur.
Lithe's Cashew milk is our delicious, high in protein & healthy fat, low-glycemic nut milk packed with soluble dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and numerous health-promoting phyto-chemicals. With the perfect amount of sweetness and spice from cinnamon, vanilla, himalayan sea salt and coconut nectar, it pairs perfectly with Root! I like to think of it as a healthy, low sugar, protein-packed White Russian!

Ready to power your practice? We're thrilled to introduce our matcha latte! It's so good, and so green. Unlike steeped tea, matcha is made by grinding the entire tea leaf into a powder. Because you consume the whole leaf, it has approximately 10x more nutrients than regular green tea and a high concentration antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber.We, of course, love it because it's so delicious (and filling) blended with cashew milk and chlorophyll.
I've been traveling a lot, so my challenge has become how to create a super-healthy breakfast that can be easily packed into a carry-on and eaten on the road (in the car, on a plane, in the airport, or even in a hotel room) that is both delicious and nutrient-packed, so that I feel energized for the long day ahead.
You guys already know how to make the original, so give this decadent superfoods recipe a shot. It contains a ton of nutrients and fits perfectly in a Ziploc bag or your travel cooler bag. And, now that you're comfortable making almond milk, you can easily learn how to make goji berry milk!
Goji Berry Milk Ingredients
Goji berries (lycium barbarum) are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth. They are a member of the nightshade family (solonaceae), which contains many other common vegetables such as potato, tomato, eggplant, and pepper. Native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, the goji berry is now grown in many other countries as well. Although they have only been introduced in Western countries in recent years, gojis have been used for thousands of years both as a culinary ingredient and medicinally.
Unique among fruits because they contain all essential amino acids, goji berries also have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit. They are also loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, have twenty-one trace minerals, and are high in fiber. Boasting 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach, as well as calcium, zinc, selenium and many other important trace minerals, there is no doubt that the goji is a nutritional powerhouse.
This amazing little superfruit also contains natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal compounds. Its powerful antioxidant properties and polysaccharides boost the immune system. It’s no wonder then, that in traditional Chinese medicine they are renowned for increasing strength and longevity.

Lithe inside? Here's a perfect weekend breakfast recipe! This is a warm, filling, wholesome breakfast featuring maple syrup, banana, and cinnamon. It’s easy to make ahead of time and reheat on busy mornings. I know some of you are thinking ... rolled oats!? Sure, you can always soak and make the healthier steel cut variety, but for those of you who are looking for an "instant" healthy (and minimally processed) breakfast, it doesn't get any easier than this and it only takes 5 minutes.
