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!).

GARDEN SAGE SKINNY HEATHEN 30 Jan 2015

Garden Sage

Happy Friday! Next up in our 13-week Skinny Heathen series with Art In The Age is the Garden Sage made with Lithe's The Vert cold-pressed juice and AITA's Sage liquor.

The Vert is a deep, yet light, power-packed raw juice blend made of cold-pressed cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, and ginger. AITA's Sage is a refreshing “garden gin” with an intoxicating aroma and woodsy, herbaceous flavor. Infused with organic thyme, rosemary, lavender, fennel, and sage, it's delicious. The green garden flavor of this drink is smooth, bright, green, and herbal ... sort of like spring in a glass! 


Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

2 oz. Sage liquor

4 oz. The Vert

Ice

Sliced apple for garnish

 

Directions

Fill a Collins glass with ice, pour in The Vert and Sage. Garnish with apple slices.

HEAVEN & EARTHY SKINNY HEATHEN 23 Jan 2015

Heaven

 

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!

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Root liquor
  • 4 oz. Cashew Milk
  • Cinnamon or nutmeg
  • Ice

 

Directions

  • Add ROOT to a large tumbler or hurricane glass filled with ice. Fill almost to the top with Cashew Milk. Top with freshly shaved nutmeg or cinnamon.



Yield: 1 serving

WHAT'S (NEW) IN THE FRIDGE? 16 Jan 2015

 

Matcha

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.

BEND 'N' SNAP! SKINNY HEATHEN 8 Jan 2015

Bendsnap

 

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 one of my favorites: Bend 'n' Snap!, which is made with Lithe's The Vert and AITA's Snap liquor

 

ATIA took a traditional German “lebkuchen” and distilled the ingredients into an organic spirit. What is a lebkuchen? A ginger snap! But not the mass-market, high-fructose type from the supermarket. We’re talking a real Pennsylvania Dutch (which actually means Pennsylvania German) ginger snap made with hearty (unrefined sugar!) blackstrap molasses, and fresh ginger.

 

Lithe's The Vert is a deep, yet light, power-packed raw juice blend that will get you going – and we mean it! Made of cold-pressed cucumber, celery, apple, lemon, and ginger - Bend 'n' Snap! starts out strong (and snappy) with an initial hit of green but mellows out to a lighter, earthy gingery cocktail. 

 

Ingredients

  • 2 oz. Snap liquor
  • 4 oz. The Vert
  • Apple wedge
  • Ice

 

Directions

  • Fill a Collins glass with ice, pour in The Vert and Snap. Garnish with apple wedge.
