LITHED-UP SALAD (& SOUP)! 31 Aug 2015

Lithed-Up Salad

We love Ian Brendle (Green Meadow Farm) and Z Food Farm's produce. So crisp, flavorful, and clean. Each week, these soups and salads change as we bring you summer greens straight from the farm. Here's what's available now:

Lithe Borscht Soup
Organic beets, organic tomato, onion, garlic, caraway, red wine vinegar, and honey

This sweet, rosy, and creamy (dairy-free) chilled superfood soup is your body’s BFF. Remember all those legendary Russian centenarians? Beets, frequently consumed in the traditional Russian soup borscht, may be one reason behind their long and healthy lives. Packed with antioxidants, it will have you energized and glowing in no time. Beets are loaded with anthocyanins, which are powerful antioxidants that reduce oxidative stress by neutralizing free radicals that can lead to aging, illness, and memory loss. Enjoy it cold.  
One serving ($8)  
Available today

Grilled Summer Bowl
Organic quinoa, brown rice, organic eggplant, organic heirloom tomato, shishito peppers, sherry vinaigrette and EVOO

This is the perfect post-Lithe meal. Like your favorite stir-fry, our grilled eggplant and shishito peppers are simple and completely addictive, and paired with protein-packed quinoa and rice (13 grams!). Shishito peppers are slender, finger-length green pods with thin skins and a delicious sweet flavor. 
Enjoy it cold.  
One serving ($10)  
Available today  

Grilled Peaches & Squash Salad
Grilled organic squash, grilled organic peaches, parsley, white wine vinegar & EVOO
This beautiful salad captures the flavor of late August. Yellow-fleshed Jersey peaches nestle among lightly charred summer squash and fronds of parsley. The generous drizzle of white wine vinegar and EVOO bring the flavors together. Enjoy it cold.
One serving ($10)

HEIRLOOM 76 6 Aug 2015

Heirloom 76

Heirloom 76 is our limited edition, organic, cold-pressed taste of summer. It's alive, fruity, savory, garden-fresh, and celebrates the freedom of the season. This blend is low-cal, cooling, hydrating, and mood-boosting. Plus, it lowers blood pressure, fights free radicals, and gives your Lithed-Up hot bod a shot of potassium and lycopene. Potassium acts as an electrolyte along with sodium and conducts electricity through the body. Lypocene, a pigment in tomatoes, acts as an antioxidant and protects against damage from the free radicals formed when cells burn oxygen for energy. Pour up (drank).

HEIRLOOM VEGGIES 4 Aug 2015

Carrots

Don't you love looking at all the crazy, beautiful "ugly" heirloom veggies at the farmers' market? The range of colors and imperfect shapes is fascinating. Generally, an heirloom vegetable is a variety that is at least 50 years old and grown from seeds passed down through several generations of farmers. Open-pollination (the seeds produce their own offspring plants) is the trademark of most heirlooms, unlike hybrid veggies and fruits, which are born out of a marriage of two different species like the tangelo which was created when a tangerine was mixed with a grapefruit.

In response to consumer demand, many types of heirloom veggies such as tomatoes, carrots, pumpkins, squash and beets have popped up at farmers’ markets, restaurants, and our Lithe Foods fridge. Here’s why you should embrace the imperfect shapes and colors of juicy, sun-kissed heirloom veggies, which are now in peak season and included in most of our Lithe Foods offerings. 

Awesome Taste 
As a farmer's daughter, I know all about the beauty and great flavor of what farmers call "seconds." Most o
f the "perfect" looking produce that you see in the supermarket is chosen based on its resistance to disease, easy transport, and appearance rather than taste. Commercially grown produce is usually picked in its under-ripe state, and then artificially ripened, leaving it with a bland taste (think of your typical supermarket tomato). Most locally grown heirloom veggies are harvested when ripe, and then sold shortly afterward. This gives them a true summer flavor that's worth the yearlong wait. And in the case of the heirloom tomato, the uglier it is, the tastier it tends to be!

Amazing Nutrition 
While research comparing nutrient levels of heirlooms to garden-variety vegetables is unknown, many nutritionists believe in the power of vegetables that are allowed to ripen naturally, as opposed to being picked while still unripe and boxed for transport. Plus, selecting more ripe produce at the market increases the diversity of your diet, which exposes you to a greater number of disease-fighting compounds.

Support Local Farmers 
Since heirlooms are more likely to be grown and sold by small-scale farmers, filling your salad with Sungold tomatoes and heirloom squash is a great way to support local growers and economy. Also, better-tasting food doesn’t require a ton of petroleum to get to your dining table from Argentina. However, keep in mind that heirloom and organic are not always synonymous. If you’re trying to remove all types of pesticides from your meal plan, you’ll need to ask farmers about their growing practices. 

Crop Diversity 
Think lean, local and seasonalUnfortunately America is chock full of
monocrop farms producing soy, genetically modified corn and wheat, which is mostly used to fatten up cows (and us!) in the form of high-fructose corn syrup. By making it a point to put aside a little more of your grocery budget for heirlooms and less expensive "seconds" from your local farmer that are not suited for your chain supermarkets, you’ll do your body good, help keep old veggie varieties around and experience the true taste of summer. And remember to think beyond the tomato! The heirloom world also includes carrots, hot peppers, eggplant, corn, beets, and leafy greens.

AGUA DE MELON! 15 Jul 2015

Agua de Melon 1
Agua de Melon

Man, is it hot (and wet) inside and outside the studios. Agua fresca (which means fresh water in Spanish) is a great way to cool down. Agua de melon is my absolute favorite fresca (I like it better than watermelon!). There’s so much to love about cold-pressed cantaloupe. It's gorgeously hued and mildly flavored and doesn't have any of the syrupy sweetness of bottled fruit juices. A great agua fresca tastes like you liquefied a piece of melon without altering it one bit. It also makes you forget exactly how hot you are post-Lithe. 

Cantaloupes are considered the most nutritious fruit. One average-sized cantaloupe has approximately 100 calories (there's one cantaloupe in each bottle of agua de melon) and is dense in nutrients and beta-carotene. Cantaloupe is packed with vitamins A and C and is great for your skin. Per pound, this fruit has 15,000 I.U. of vitamin A and three times the vitamin C content of apples. And it's also a good source of potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B3 (niacin), folate, and fiber when eaten. Our local organic melon is my current favorite and the pretty color and mellow, musky flavor is incredible. It couldn’t be more perfect for a day like today when it feels too hot to eat anything that must be lifted with a fork.
