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.

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.

THE SWEET STUFF 3 Jan 2015

Summer Fruit

Here at Lithe, we don’t believe in demonizing foods, as we're all about eating all foods sensibly. We prefer to swap highly processed and refined foods with their whole food counterparts whevever possible. For some of you, the Lithe Inside Challenge may mean cutting out all refined sugar, carbs, and processed foods from your diet during the work week and relaxing on the weekends. Others may want to take it a step further and reduce their consumption of sugar from ALL areas. It's totally up to you...

If you know me well, you know that I'm a true chocohololic. There aren't too many days that I haven't had a square of dark chocolate. In my opinion, there is nothing wrong with enjoying a sweet treat every now and again (I'm certainly guilty). But many of us with a sweet tooth often overdo it, and rely on sugary food to kill a craving, boost our energy, or even to improve our mood. We indulge, then soon those cravings return, accompanied by lethargy, moodiness, and to top it off, you're back to where you started – wanting more sugar.

Now, don’t get me wrong, not all sugars are ‘bad’, in fact, sugar is critical for adequate metabolic function, to prevent stress on the body, and to avoid the depletion of critical cellular components. But as you are probably aware, sugar comes in a wide variety of foods – from natural plant based foods such as fruits, grains and starchy vegetables, to animal foods such as cheese and milk, as well as processed and refined foods such as crackers, chips, cake, and chocolate. It is the processed and refined sources that we should be avoiding. You know, the stuff that we've been indulging in for the past few weeks!

So, why should we avoid refined sugar?  Any sugar that is unrecognizable from its natural form should be avoided. Conventional sugar is generally processed through extreme heat treatments, chemical purification, and bleaching. Even brown sugar should be avoided, as it is generally white, refined sugar that has either had molasses added back into it to make it brown (or it's artificially colored). The end product of this sugar is therefore nutrient-empty, calorie dense and chemical laden.

Refined sugars are easily digested and absorbed straight into our blood stream, causing elevated blood glucose levels. High blood glucose levels put a massive strain on our organs and body’s systems, causing wear and tear, aging, and decreasing its functional ability. Excess sugar consumption has also been associated with tooth decay, contributing to weight gain, compromising immunity, and many other consequences.

The amount of sugar in our food is downright shocking. If your food is packaged, it probably contains added sugar. This includes ready-made sauce and salad dressing, bread, breakfast cereal, potato chips ... And the list goes on. When you sit back and think about what you eat on a typical day, you may be surprised at how much sugar you are actually consuming. You can see how easy it is to consume a ton of sugar and just how quickly it adds up.

Want to learn more? Stay tuned on how you can eliminate refined sugar and what you can do with it (on Monday) in lieu of throwing it away!
