Thanks, everyone! I love sharing pics of him. @Natalee, I wouldn't advise using powdered sugar if you're doing the Lithe Spring Clean, but I'm not judging you :) @Samantha, you can, but your mousse will be crunchy. Like, you'll be chewing on sugar crystals. With this recipe, you are literally pouring a can of coconut milk into a bowl, then adding all powdered ingredients and then stirring them together. Crystals won't melt/dissolve, and adding liquid sweeteners, or making a simple syrup out of the sugar will make it way too soupy and it won't set. Good luck!

A, this is from a "HE" : ) I meant like, total out of the bottle sweet n sour "Margaritaville" mix. This recipe is super delish, even with the triple and the Rose's, but it's not a "skinny" Margarita. It's def a man's recipe that everyone will love. Aly, you can absolutely sub the triple sec. Check this article out. It's great! http://www.americanmixologist.net/pages/amo/vlm22/22-02a11.htm

@Meredith @Samantha - Thanks for chiming in! I/Lithe has never encouraged people to take back-to-back classes. If you search this blog you'll see posts talking about how Lithe was created for efficiency and that doubling up is something that I/we don't recommend doing on a regular basis unless you're combining workouts properly. That is not the intention of this post. The Earned In Winter Series highlights the many different types of people (and bodies) that workout within our walls, and how different we all are. It's about their stories, and what motivates them. Regarding Lithers taking multiple classes a day, people should keep in mind that we've been doing this for almost 10 years. We keep a watchful eye, speak to people and we even remove people from classes and request doctors notes when we see an unhealthy "habit" occurring. The reality is, many people DO double up. Especially during our challenges. It's not a terrible thing if it's not abused. I chose to highlight Betsy b/c so many people (myself included) are quick to judge those who push themselves to the max. There are people who can relate to her and her struggles, and how she has/is overcome/overcoming them. Betsy, thanks for being brave and so willing to be featured. I'm happy to have had the opportunity to work with you for a week on Lithe Escape.
Hey Rebecca, please don't use corn starch. The agar is the star of the recipe. It's a thickener made from seaweed with major nutritional benefits. All seaweeds are known to be high in vitamins and minerals, and they are especially high in iodine, calcium, and iron. Sea veggies help to lower cholesterol, are beneficial to the thyroid, and they help to detoxify the body. Agar is tasteless, odorless, and invisible when cooked, so you won't taste any seaweed or sea flavor! My favorite feature of agar is that it helps to promotes digestion and weight loss. Do you live close to Essene? They carry it. If you don't want to buy anything for this dessert, I suggest using regular gelatin or skipping the binder and making a dessert smoothie to satisfy your sweet craving : )

Hi Toni, I've been using Bragg's for years. I love it b/c it's a healthier alternative to soy sauce. I use Bragg's because it tastes great and b/c of the non-GMO soy factor, which does matter to me, although I'm not phobic about it. Its perfect for stir-fry, sauteed greens, veggies, eggs, salad - even popcorn. I add it to Miso and Green Soup. I'll share some great salad dressing recipes in week 3 of the Lithe Spring Clean challenge! They'll send you free samples (left side of website) Check this out: http://bragg.com/products/laFAQ.html
