What I Eat in a Day

I love to start my day drinking a BIG GLASS of water to get my system going and wake myself up! I try to get alkaline water, which has a PH of about 9.5 ph.

Once the kids are at school, I have more time to move and eat mindfully so I’ll brew a really nice superfood coffee. I use a French press and then add in one of our coconut butters (full of healthy fats!), almond milk creamer, and a bit of stevia.

Once I’ve made my coffee, I check in with my emails, my texting, and my social media and start to connect with my community, with my tribe, and with all of YOU! Looking at the cool posts you’ve created and tagged us in always makes me smile. And with that inspiration, I’ll start creating my own social posts for the day.

On days that I can’t get to the gym, I still try to move my body. I’ll usually go outside and unroll my yoga mat to inspire me to move + flow.

Then I make my favorite lemon cayenne ginger concoction. Luckily, we have a lemon tree so it’s really fun to pick the lemons, take them into the kitchen, and squeeze up own healthy version of lemonade. This particular lemon drink has cayenne pepper, lemon juice, ginger juice, and alkaline water—it helps move things along digestion-wise + is super alkalizing.

As you all know, I’m a smoothie-obsessed person. I love making smoothie bowls and adding my own nutrient-dense toppings! I usually take it over to the table and dig in there, while writing blog posts.

Just like smoothies in the morning, it’s really easy to create a mason jar salad for a grab and go lunch. I love Barlean’s Fish Oil, which is my favorite type of dressing (I really like the peach mango flavor!), or I’ll use a homemade Green Dream pesto.

Since we live in LA and are on the go all the time, we spend a lot of time in the car. But luckily, our Coconut Butter serves up an instant, nutrient-dense remedy for hangriness! Whenever we’re starving and sitting on the freeway in traffic, we pop open a jar and pass it around.

At the end of a day filled with running around with the kids and going to meetings, I love to ground down and having something warm for the night. I’ll make something simple like a pre-made soup from the freezer or quinoa + veggies (Costco has an organic quinoa and kale packet that I like!).

And if you know me, you know I LOVE sweets, so I’ll always top off my dinner with a vegan + dairy-free ice cream. I’ve happily accepted it as my jam and my indulgence + always enjoy it sans guilt!

Hi Norma,

I like Trader Joe’s vegan ice cream, as well as Steve’s Ice Cream (it was my Heart of the Week recently—http://www.thephilosophie.com/blogs/philosophie-blog/88713412-heart-of-the-week-steves-ice-cream).

Let me know if there are any you like as well that I should try!

xoxo,
Sophie

Sophie, what ice cream do you indulge in? I can’t seem to find one worth the treat :)

Cassie, I love yams too—they’re such a good, filling snack! Thanks for sharing, beauty!

Hey Chasity,

LOVE hearing that others wake up with water, lemon, and apple cider vinegar too—it really does do the trick! Alkaline water is great because many of the foods we eat are on the acidic side (like meats, pastas, and breads) so this water helps keep our pH levels in balance.

xoxo,
Sophie

i start my day with water, lemon and acv… that really helps push everything thru! :) however, i’m curious to learn more about the alkaline water… i’ve never heard of it before.

Something that I try to have every single day is sweet potato or yam! It tastes so good, digests in my stomach really well, and is so high in fiber, vitamins and minerals! I love the smoothie bowl presentation—so beautiful!

Heart of the Week: 5 Day Reset Cleanse

The holidays can be grueling on the body. Between all the sweets, stress and exhaustion it’s a wonder you manage to pull it off by the time the new year comes around. We celebrate Hanukkah but also participate in the fun + magic of Christmas traditions like putting up a tree.


To say our home is a bit crazy right now is an understatement and I’m FEELING it. That’s why it’s SO important to kick my health into high gear and fuel my body with all the nutrients + sustenance it needs. You may not think to take the time during the holidays to participate in a 5 day or 10 day cleanse is worth it, but that is absolutely not true. I especially love the magic of the 5 Day Reset Cleanse to help keep me on track during the holiday season.


This holistic, revitalizing cleanse will not only support you in detoxing from the taxing energies of the holidays, but will also make you feel rejuvenated, refreshed, lighter, and truly ready to celebrate all that’s to come.

Benefits of the 5 Day Reset Cleanse

This type of cleansing is unique in that it doesn’t promote deprivation, but rather focuses on giving your digestive system a well-deserved break.

Since we all get busy and don’t always have time to shop for and prepare healthy, wholesome foods, we’ll often turn to picking up fast food or ordering a pizza (guilty!). The issue with this is that we’ll be filling ourselves with foods that are much more likely higher in trans fats and high-glycemic sugar, possibly sprayed with pesticides, and lower in nutrients.

A food-based cleanse like this 5 Day Reset Cleanse provides just the opposite and consists of protein-rich smoothies, nutrient-dense salads, whole food snacks, superfood energy bars, fresh juices and fiber-filled soups—all of which are gluten-free, vegan, low in sugar and high in plant-based proteins.


Let your intuition guide you and take this time to fully explore your needs – think of yourself as part scientist, part researcher, and part healer as you do a deep dive into what is working for your body and what isn’t. Remember, it's a journey that requires patience.

Crush-Your-Cravings Classic Cacao Magic Fudge Recipe

Anyone else have a sweet tooth during the holidays? Between all the hot coco and sugar cookies, my craving for sweets + chocolate is on some other level! Philosophie Babe, Marissa Cohen, whipped up an AMAZING Cacao Magic Fudge recipe to help satisfy all the cravings with a healthy, good-for-you twist.


A fudge recipe that requires one bowl, is ready in thirty minutes, and is superfood spiked? Yes, please. The other day I came home with a deep craving for a piece of creamy, decadent fudge. In order to satisfy my sweet tooth, I whipped up this recipe using Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend and a few other simple ingredients in no time.

Unlike other treats that may leave you with a bit of a sugar hangover, this fudge will make you feel amazing. The Cacao Magic provides the rich, chocolatey flavor with healing adaptogens and energizing nutrients. I sweetened it with the Green Bee Honey for a hit of antioxidants and cleansing powers of spirulina, and the Coconut Magic makes it oh-so creamy.

Feel free to get creative and add fun toppings such as goji berries, bee pollen, coconut flakes, extra cacao nibs, and chopped nuts or seeds to your liking. Enjoy this fudge at the end of your meal with a warm cup of tea or mid-afternoon for a quick boost!

Gather This:
1 tbsp of melted coconut oil
½ cup melted Coconut Magic Coconut Butter 
½ cup creamy cashew butter (can sub with any other nut or seed butter of choice)
¼ cup Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend
2 tbsp Green Bee Honey
pinch of sea salt

Do This:
Melt the coconut butter and coconut oil on medium-low heat. Add the cashew butter until it is incorporated. Remove from the heat and stir in the Cacao Magic, Green Bee Honey, and sea salt. Pour mixture into square pan (I recommend using a glass pan that has been sprayed with a coconut oil spray or rubbed with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil) and sprinkle on any toppings your heart desires. Chill in the freezer for 20-30 minutes, cut, and serve!

Note: This recipe can keep in the fridge for up to two weeks in an air-tight container (not that it will last you that long).

A Note on the Final New Moon of 2018

Happy first week of December loves! I’m loving the cold, rainy weather here in LA. All I want to do is stay home, snuggled up with my family. Did you all know that Noa is now 6 months?! Time is flying by! Feeling it ALL.


This week we are greeted by an ever-expansive and mind-opening New Moon in Sagittarius in the early morning on December 7th. This moon is energizing and fueled with a spirit that challenges your expansion and growth, perfect for switching your intentions and manifestations to 2019.


New Moons are a beautiful time for new beginnings and new cycles. It’s a time to turn inward and set intentions whether emotional, physically or spiritually on the cycle ahead. This moon is challenging you to dream. Dream bigger than you’ve had all year.

New Moon in Sagittarius

The Sagittarius New Moon challenges us to seek optimism and expand your mind outward. You may feel a new sense of hope and uplifting. The eternal wanderer and traveler that is Sagittarius, offers us with mystical New Moon energy to expand our horizons and experience new experiences and new truths.


This is the time to allow yourself to leave the painful parts of your past behind and take hold of the inner work you did during Scorpio season and branch out, visualizing a brighter and more fulfilling path ahead. If you find yourself suffering in emotional, physical, or mental ways brought on by the struggles of the year - this New Moon offers hope and small joys in the magical little wonders of life. Instead of seeing a situation as it is, you will be able to imagine what your situation could be.


Full of adventurous and impulsive energy, this Sagittarius New Moon could give you that final push to move ahead on a big decision you’ve been troubled over or book that trip you’ve been longing for.


The Sagittarius New Moon this week encourages us to celebrate all that we have done and all that we have achieved over the year. It asks us to recognize the inner growth we have completed and to celebrate where we stand today. I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the final month of 2018.

New Moon Ritual

This ritual is to help you step into a more relaxed and positive state of mind for the final month of the year. It is going to use the energy of the New Moon to help you celebrate where you are, and all the hard work you have achieved throughout the year.

Inner growth was a huge part of 2018, so even if you feel like you haven’t done much, know on the inside you have been transforming + growing.


Tools

Palo Santo

Candles

Crystals (choose one that calls out to you for the upcoming cycle)


Begin by cleansing yourself and your space with your Palo Santo. Light your candle and place it directly in front of you. Take your crystal, hold it in both your hands and press it against your heart center. Take 10 deep breaths here. Take in the energy pulsing around you and the energy of the crystal. Imagine yourself inhaling and exhaling with this vibrant energy.


Recite a mantra or affirmation while you’re doing this, such as -


I open myself so I may see the path to my highest destiny. With my gift of openness, I offer joy. I will fill my life with joy, love, and laughter.


I will turn big ideas into action.


Allow yourself during this New Moon to find happiness and give yourself love. Do something that brings you joy and fills you up. There are no limits and it can absolutely be something simple. Make yourself a healing + nourishing superfood smoothie like the Cacao Magic “JOY” Smoothie or baking warm chocolate chip cookies. Maybe it’s dancing around the living room with your littles or quieting your mind in a healing detox bath. Whatever it may be, allow your heart to completely fill up.

Sophie's Thoughts on Navigating the Societal Landscape

This past week has been an absolutely magical one. My family and I spent the holiday weekend with my love, Eva Shipp and all her kiddos. Experiencing all the kid’s love + joy for each other and watching the magic of life through their eyes is such a blessing. It has such an impact on our family to be able to escape for the weekend, reconnect, and experience the magic of play + imagination.


Coming back home I’ve been reflecting on all we’ve gone through as a society especially us here in Southern California. In one week, there was a shooting in Thousand Oaks and then devasting wildfires near Malibu. These were so close to home. I’m sincerely grateful every day that our home is okay and my family is safe + comfortable.


When tragedies like these hit so close to home they have an effect on your mental wellbeing and her kids’ emotional + mental health. My boys are at an age now where they know the seriousness of these events. There are elementary schools practicing active shooter drills. My boys wake up in the middle of the night from a nightmare about a fire or a shooting. This is our reality.


I’ve always loved the holiday season because of it’s magical quality to transcend reality and create a bubble of comfort, joy and love. You're able to spend time together as a family, curl up with a movie, and enjoy a delicious hot chocolate or yummy chocolate chip cookies. But as a mom, I know that tragedies are just that because of there nature to happen unexpectedly with serious effects. How do we navigate it? How do we stay prepared + responsible, but still remain optimistic + elevated for our kids?

Here are some ways we’ve made changes in our home to help navigate the societal landscape.


Create a code word with your kids.

As an entrepreneur and a mama with a little babe, I’m perfectly comfortable asking for help with my boys’ schedules. Whether they have a casting call, yoga class or want to go play at the park, they may be accompanied by Adi or I or any of my the beautiful souls in my support system. When I need to use a babysitter or carpool service like Kango (use my code “Sophie20” for $20 off a ride!), the kids and I created a code word that means this person is safe and you can trust them. It gives us all comfort.

In times of tragedy, heal yourself first.

It’s so important to take the time and process whatever happened in your own way. Maybe that looks like a really intense workout class, a long soak in a bath, or a night out with your girlfriends. Connect with your community, escape for a bit, let out your emotions so you can come back to your kids and approach them in a more grounded, level manner.


Digest the scary topics at their level.

Take the time to talk with your kids and explain what happened in a way they can digest. Talking to them about it early on allows them to process it in there way, ask questions and allow the space to heal as a family. This way they don’t learn about these events in the media or at school where it can be misconstrued.


Above all, show up to the world the way you want to. I show up with love - love for everything and anything. When I show up with love, my kids see it and hold on to it. They, too, know how to give and receive love.


Hold your families close this holiday season. It’s truly a magical time and a wonderful time to teach and connect with your kids.


How do you stay present + grounded as a mama? I’d love to know! Share in the comments below or connect with me on Facebook using #PhilosophieLove.
