LITHED-UP SALAD (& SOUP)! 28 Jul 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. This week...

1. Eggplant Caponata: Organic eggplant, organic squash, garlic, celery, tropea onion, organic brown rice, raisins, organic tomato, local honey, pinenuts with red wine vinaigrette  There’s so much to love about this dish, and tt's just as good as Nonna's without all the oil.  We always look for interesting ways to enjoy brown rice and this recipe makes it even more appealing and worthy of main dish status. Next, it's the spices that tantalize the tastebuds. We also love how the eggplant's texture plays against the rice. The purple veggie is quite nutritious. It lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol with its chlorogenic compound and prevents colon cancer. It's anti-carcinogenic due to its antioxidant nasunin content and is a great source of folate, fiber, and vitamins A, B, and C.  1 serving. Enjoy hot or cold. $12  Available Today. 

2. Summer & Spice Soup: Organic Squash, Cashews & Curry (Tumeric) Move over lunchtime smoothie.  This soup does the body really good. It's is loaded with flavor, fiber and protein, and nobody ever guesses that we've swapped out the heavy cream for healthy, raw cashews. Cashews are filled with healthy fats - 75% are unsaturated fatty acids and 75% of that unsaturated fatty acid content is oleic acid.  Studies show that oleic acid reduces high triglyceride levels, keeping that awesome heart of yours happy and healthy.  On top of all that goodness, squash is a nutritional powerhouse, and is low cal (about 36 calories, 7g of carbohydrates, less than 1g of fat and 1g of protein) and rich in maganese, which helps the body process fats, carbohydrates and glucose.  It is also cholesterol-free, naturally gluten and dairy-free.  2 Servings.  $12  Enjoy it hot or cold.  Available Today.

3. Smart Carb Salad: Organic Cabbage, Scallions & Peanut Sauce  We're loving this light n' crunchy protein-packed summer salad.  Shredded cabbage (AKA the smart carb) is all dressed up in our Lithed Up peanut sauce for a perfectly simple and balanced salad that will fill you up (not out).   1 serving.  Enjoy it cold.  $10  Available Today.

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.

AGUA FRESCA (#DRUNKINLOVE) 11 Jun 2015

AF1

Our Watermelon and Lime Agua Fresca cold-pressed juice is made from lime and the flesh and rind of watermelon. There's no water or sugar added. Each serving has twice the potassium of a single banana and is a good source of magnesium, lypocene, and vitamin A and C. Plus, there's only 60 calories per serving. It’s also rich in the amino acid citrulene, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels and increases your libido (which may explain why Beyonce is drinking watermelon).

  Lithe-Foods-

We're so excited to announce that Lithe Foods will soon be available via Caviar, even if you're not in the studio! As a valuable service for busy families and professionals with little time to shop for food and cook meals, Caviar brings delicious food into homes or businesses that you can enjoy every day. Caviar is the only service of its kind to feature all of the following:

  • Only top local restaurants offering the best-tasting, highest quality food

  • Fastest delivery: real-time GPS delivery tracking using its own drivers
  • No minimum order requirements
  • Customized orders with a one-hour delivery window.

How it works – fast and easy

Unlike other services, Caviar customers first select the time period when they’d like a delivery – whether it’s an hour away or a week ahead. Customers can then browse Caviar’s curated list of restaurants. You can also order as a group by sharing your shopping cart with friends, family, and co-workers. This is especially valuable for companies that use Caviar for catering or corporate meal programs.

Unlike other delivery options, Caviar offers great restaurant choices and a high-touch experience to consumers and corporations alike. Each restaurant’s available delivery times are listed on the Caviar's restaurant pages. This saves valuable time, since you don't have to sift through restaurants that aren't available during your desired delivery window.
