I’ve tried almost everything when it comes to health and beauty, and I’ve adopted a few habits over the years that have become absolutely essential to my everyday. Many of you guys tell me that I glow, and I know that these little game-changers have made a massive impact on my health and beauty.
Bone Broth is a miracle food. If you’re looking for a natural tonic for total-body health and beauty, bone broth is it. When I started including bone broth as a regular part of my diet, everything improved – my digestion, my immunity, energy levels, my skin, and my joints. I've even passed the ritual on to my mom who has had 7-level spinal fusion three years ago and she's never felt or looked better.
I use this mineral-rich liquid gold as a base for soups, sauces, and veggies, and I love sipping it straight every morning – usually with a pinch of Jacobson's sea salt, fresh pepper and a pinch of turmeric or Lithe Spice.
Alphaeon & Val Daily skin care systems have been total game changers for me. In just three weeks my fine lines disappeared. Alphaeon smoothes, plumps, and hydrates without a needle or a laser. It's the only product proven to enter the dermis without an injection. It's fragrance-free and not tested on animals. Sold exclusively at Dr. Bucky's.
Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting has transformed my body. I’m stronger, lean, muscularly balanced, more flexible, and less stressed. Movement is my happy place and I love the intense slow sculpting and the empowering high-energy cardio workouts. There's nothing else like it.
Mindfulness is so powerful. I make sure to take a time out every day, and I always feel a million times better because of it. I use the Buddhify app. It's so easy. Just grab your phone; you’ll be a better partner/mom/employee/boss or friend because of it.
Eating Lithe goes far beyond weight loss. Many issues like bloating, fatigue, stress and depression originate in the gut. Eating whole, healthy foods is a game-changer when it comes to boosting your health. Adding superfoods, smoothies, cold-pressed juice, probiotics, and fermented foods (like kimchi and kombucha) keeps me energized and healthy.
Foam Rolling is a part of my everyday because stretching is never enough. I want to feel fluid, and rolling improves circulation, which preps my body for my workout and helps it recover afterward. Foam rolling also assists in breaking up trigger points (knots that limit range of motion), resuming normal blood flow and function to the muscle. Releasing trigger points (knots) helps to reestablish proper movement patterns and pain free movement, and ultimately, enhances performance. By applying pressure to specific points on your body you are able to aid in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function. Normal function means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice.
All Girl Getaways are immensely therapeutic. It's the ultimate re-charge. For me, getting away with girlfriends and hitting the reset button is hands down the best way of getting out of a rut. I return with a renewed sense of energy, purpose and independence. The empowering benefits of a girls getaway is what inspired me to create Lithe Escape. The effects and results are deep-rooted and long-lasting.

TGIF! This week we're giving away one spot in the May Cora Program ($325 value). For a chance to win, please leave a comment below telling us why you'd love to take our Cora classes.

Here's our fourth and final week of #LitheSpringClean, which is also the last week of the second phase of our Earned in Winter Challenge! Good luck everyone, and if you fell off the wagon last week, it's the perfect time to get back in the game! We can't wait to see your #LitheResults!
You've been working hard, so stay fluid and give your joints some love. Our Lithe Foods local and organic bone broth is on sale this week for $12.60 per quart. Find it in our fridges and on Caviar.
With 69 calories, 4g fat, 6g protein, and 0 carbs per cup, 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, 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.
The 32 oz. container ($16) has four 8 oz. servings, which is enough to make one large batch of soup. We recommend dividing it into four servings and storing them in the freezer or freezing two servings and keeping the other two in the fridge. Bone broth has a fridge life of 4-5 days, but keeps indefinitely in the freezer.
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.
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!
This is my second love letter to you. I've wanted to write this for a while but finding the time – well you know what that is like.
I signed up for the Lithe Escape in Nicaragua last summer to focus on lithing, clean eating, and getting daily doses of vitamin D. It was an amazing experience. The setting was serene and my fellow Lithers were inspiring. And my results blew me away. So all in all one would say it was a successful Escape experience. What I did not expect was how the osteoarthritis in my knee would react to the level of activity. I found myself modifying every activity and not looking forward to the next Lithe session. I was in pain (yes, actual pain) but I found a way to fight through.
When we got back from Nicaragua, I thought it was the level of activity that led to the discomfort. Unfortunately that was not the case. I was uncomfortable, unable to sleep properly, and sore all the time. I needed to hold the railings going up and down stairs. I thought I could manage with pain medication and my brace, but that didn't ease my symptoms. Even doubling up my mats in the studio didn't help. I dreaded going to Lithe because I felt like I was at a status quo and that this where I had topped out in terms of my physical health. I was going to be like this for the rest of my life. (I paid a lot of money in late cancels last year.)
I finally made an appointment with my orthopedist. He told me I was looking at possible knee replacement surgery. What? No way! I wasn’t ready for that. I asked him what my other options were. He said I needed to wear sneakers during workouts, which I tried and hated. He decided my last and only option was to fit me for a brace and throw away my generic drugstore brand one.
I received my new knee brace at the end of January. I wore it hoping it would decrease my pain, but I was not so lucky. I still experienced pain and new pain that I definitely did not expect. I used this recovery time to concentrate on form, as I couldn't do reps at the pace that was typical of a class, and to get through the transitions.
I hadn't completed a challenge in two years. Now I am happy to say that I completed the Earned in Winter challenge earlier this month. I took eight classes in the last five days, even three doubles in a row. I feel stronger than I have in a long time. I am more confident and happy. I don’t always get through 30 reps, but I know that my form is in good shape. Now I can even get through 15-20 plyos before I have to modify. I am hoping that by the end of the summer challenges I will be able to complete 30 plyos.
I am grateful beyond words. Lithe is again my happy place.
