LITHE SPRING CLEAN WEEK 3! 28 Mar 2015

Spring

You're halfway there! Week three is another detox week, but it's not as spartan as week one. You'll notice that your menu is filled with smoothies, green veggies, and muscle-building lean protein. If you're hungry during the day, add in more protein and increase your portion sizes. Good luck!

CHARCOAL LEMONADE! 21 Mar 2015

Charcoal Lemonade

The new juice that everyone is going gaga for is our Charcoal Lemonade! You all went crazy for it after trying it in our four-day Eating Lithe detox, so we'll be keeping it in stock on a semi-regular basis. 

Activated charcoal is made by burning a source of carbon (we use coconut shells) at a high temperature, which removes oxygen. Many claim that activated charcoal essentially becomes a natural magnet for toxins (pesticides, dioxins on fish from contaminated waters, and even neurotoxins from mold) in your digestive tract. Activated charcoal is nothing new. Your Brita water is filled with it and hospitals use it for patients who have been exposed to toxins or who have overdosed on drugs.

There's many benefits to consuming it (in moderation, of course). It helps the body detox from processed food and environmental pollution, relieves digestive issues like gas and bloating, and gets rid of bad breath and body odor. Plenty of people also swear that activated charcoal is a hangover cure and love its anti-aging and beautifying effects. 

Ingredients: Activated coconut charcoal, lemon, alkaline water, local maple syrup, pink Himalayan sea salt  Price: $10

DAILY DETOX SUPERFOOD SMOOTHIE {DAY 1} 17 Mar 2015

Goji+Rose

Are you detoxing with us? Have you tried your Lithe Foods Day 1 Rose + Goji Superfood Smoothie? I make this smoothie regularly and I'm so happy that we were able to include it in our detox plan. Rose and goji berries create a powerful balancing elixir for the heart that has the potential to open you to the vibe of happiness and love. Enjoy and read up on the benefits.

Rose is considered a heart tonic in the ancient system of Ayurveda. It soothes the heart and emotions and bestows balance. Rose also has a beautifying effect, soothing inflammation of the skin and increasing its glow. When buying rose water for culinary use, make sure that it's high quality and preferably organic. Most roses are heavily sprayed with pesticides. 

Goji berries belong to a class of Chinese herbs that are known as “superior tonics.” This means that they can be taken regularly over long periods of time to preserve health and youthfulness. Goji is known as the “happy berry” and reportedly gives a sense of well-being and calm. Goji’s list of benefits are astounding. Heart health and beautiful, radiant skin are among them. Goji berries are also nutritional power houses that have more iron than spinach, more vitamin C than oranges, and more beta carotene than carrots. They contain a host of trace minerals, B vitamins, and antioxidants. And they are a complete protein (yes!).

LITHE SPRING CLEAN #LITHERESULTS! 16 Mar 2015

Lauren Boggi Lithe Spring Clean

Happy spring, everyone!  Our Lithe Spring Clean challenge is my absolute favorite one. It kicks my health, metabolism, weight loss, and practice into high gear. I always say that diet is 85 percent. Eating Lithe (eating clean) is truly a challenge for most of us and incorporating the food part of the equation is what makes this month-long process really effective. 

I always find it interesting that not as many people sign up (there are only 104 of you!) because there is no "prize," yet it's the most critical of the three EIW challenges for achieving the results that everyone works SO hard for. This challenge is for you and you should do it for your health (that's the prize!). Anyone can take 20 classes in 25 days, but nobody can out-Lithe a poor diet. 

I'm in on this one too and I'll post my #LitheResults and how I'm #EatingLithe on my (now public) personal Instagram feed. Join me! 

RIGHT NOW... 11 Mar 2015

RIght Now

1. We're building our Lithe Foods pantry and are excited to offer you some of the more obscure items that I've been using in my smoothies/tea/soups for years now. Ashwagandha is an everyday staple for me.  2. I'm counting the days until Lithe Escape and loving this Harvey Faircloth Irie sweatshirt.  3. Dr-Cow's Aged cashew & blue green algae is my favorite cheese alternative.  4. Drill Design x Mizutori's Geta Sandal in nude (and black!) is supportive and absolutely perfect for spring.  5. Ro's Argan Body Conditioner by Lush is like a super-hydrating shower smoothie for your skin. It saves you time, smells divine, and there's no need for lotion!
