Philosophiemama's Food Journal

I’ve had several requests for a post sharing what I eat in a day. So, here goes!

Remember that preparation is everything in eating healthy. No excuses! Pick two days a week and prepare by chopping veggies, making smoothies + soups, + going grocery shopping.  Smoothies + Soups will last 2-3 days in a closed container + both can be frozen for 2-3 weeks and then defrosted by placing in fridge the night before.

I start my day {around 6:30am} with a big glass of room temperature alkaline water. After the glass is finished I have a small tea cup filled with warm/hot water with lemon, a pinch of cayenne pepper, 1 t apple cider vinegar, a touch of fresh ginger juice + 1 t green dream or berry bliss manuka honey.

From then, I’ll have breakfast. During that time I’m making food for the kids, and it took a lot of self discipline to learn not to snack on their food mindlessly. I actually did my 14 day cleanse in order to get out of that bad habit that I couldn’t seem to break. After day 7 of the cleanse I didn’t even WANT their food, I couldn’t wait to dive into my own breakfast when I was ready.

 

 

Most days I will have a large breakfast {listed below} but on days when I have a workout planned for early I will either have a piece of fruit or start with a green juice. Something simple.

For most larger breakfast days I will have a huge bowl of superfood egg white oats, chia seed pudding, green eggs with tons of veggies or a gigantic 30oz Superfood smoothie. I always add my super foods to everything above to add nutrients, vitamins + bonus protein. It also gives me more energy to start my day instead of just eating those foods plain. These foods POWER ME UP for the day + activate my brain + focus. 

 

 

On the weekends we will sometimes have brunch with my parents and make superfood gluten-free pancakes.

My husband is Israeli + I will NOT give up an opportunity for shashuka if it presents itself! {a traditional israeli breakfast with over easy eggs, tomato + lots of herbs}

About an hour and a half or 2 hours later I will have a large 160-20oz green veggie juice. This is filled with mostly green leafy veggies {spinach/collard greens/kale/swiss chard etc} cucumber, celery, parsley, dandelion root, apple cider vinegar, ginger, extra liquid chlorophyll + a pear or apple to sweeten it. Most days, a piece of raw chocolate needs to fit into this snack :)

Then I drink alkaline water with peppermint essential oil or lemon until lunch. This is what I sip on most of the day in between meals. I try and wait 15-20 min after the meal so I can properly digest before flooding my system with water. Then after the time has passed, I’ll drink as much as I possibly can before I eat again. 

 

 

 

For lunch I usually always have a superfood smoothie or a large salad. The majority of days I’m on the go at a demo in a store or working with my team at our headquarters so we will just make a large vat of smoothie for all of us to have in between the insanity that ensues. If I’m at home, I almost always have a large salad like the one I shared on New Beauty’s youtube channel.

mid-afternoon, around 3p, I’m back with my kiddos and we all share a snack. Usually this is sipping on fresh juice or a smoothie with something I’ve made like raw cacao magic chocolates, truffles, homemade energy bar or a baked good I created with the superfoods. 

 

 

We are usually outside or at the park so this is the easiest thing to bring 

along. We all share the juice or smoothie so it’s just enough to take the edge off until dinner.

Sometimes we will just bring fresh fruit and raw veggies and they do really well with that because it’s so refreshing while they are playing hard. It’s so hydrating for their widdle bodies :) Then we are all sipping on water while we play + enjoy each other. 

 

 

 

Sometimes I will sneak a little snack for myself like a spoonful of almond or coconut butter to hold me over for dinner. It also helps me not to overeat at night if I eat enough during the day. I hate feeling ravenous at night so I’ve learned over time to pump my body with NUTRIENT DENSE FOODS all day long so I can eat like a normal human when the sun goes down and not like an animal. 

 

While I’m making dinner I’ll listen to beautiful music, my favorite is Krishna Das, + I try to drink water the entire time instead of having wine or something else. This time is sacred for me, it feels like a moving meditation as I chop veggies + prepare food with love for my beautiful family.

 

Gluten-free stuffing recipe:

 

 It’s really important to me to make dinner for the kiddos + that we all have homemade dinners as a family, sharing our day, experiences + lives together. While the kids are waiting + playing I will put out “appetizers” of raw veggies cut up with some sort of dip like hummus or tahini.

For dinner my go-to meals are either a stir fry made with TONS of fresh veggies or a veggie curry with coconut milk + turmeric. 

 

We get all our veggies from the farmers market or from our delivery box LOVE. It’s so fun to get them delivered because then you are forced to go outside your comfort zone + learn about new veggies + fruit instead of getting stuck in a boring routine. 

 

 

Every week it’s slightly different + i feel more connected to nature + the environment because of what’s in season. Oftentimes I’ll just take whatever veggies are left over and bake them so I can keep playing with the kids. I love making gluten-free stuffing. Whatever works, right?

 

 

3-4 days of the week my husband joins us for dinner. On those nights we will sometimes add a protein to dinner, salmon, organic grass-fed meat, organic turkey or chicken. I don’t prepare meat… I’m a raw vegan food chef so all my cooking/training has been in that cuisine. So if Adi is home, we will eat non-vegan food :) 

 

Occasionally when I’m feeling lazy or don’t feel like chopping veggies I will make gluten-free pasta + add Green Dream to the marinara sauce to make it more nutrient dense. I always add fresh herbs to everything I create for extra nutrients. 

 

 

Other times we’ll have a vegan superfood soup which can be made ahead of time and just warmed. The kids love slurping it with a spoon! 

 

Vegan Gluten-free soup - in the Nourish Cookbook

 

The kids have amazing palettes + eat just about every single thing I put 

on their plates. I feel INCREDIBLY grateful for that, as I know it can be really hard for many parents. My best advice is to just keep trying. They will eventually come around if they keep being exposed to it + most importantly see YOU enjoying it regularly. 

 

After the kids are asleep I usually want something else to nosh on so I will either have some sort of vegan ice cream (mint chip is my FAVE), raw or dark chocolate or a glass of wine. If I’m in a non-lazy mood I will make the ice cream myself with frozen bananas and my superfood blends or a chia seed cacao magic pudding.

 

 

 I’d much prefer to waste those calories on dessert… my sweet tooth will just about always win :) I usually always have a tablespoon of nut butter before bed. I’ve read a few studies that say that this will help balance your blood sugar levels while you sleep. I’m all for any excuse to eat nut butter :)

That’s it! Let me know in the comments if you have any specific questions! I tried to share as many deets as I could without getting so lost in them + boring you to death. What are tricks you have to stay energized throughout the day? Do you ever feel like you don’t eat enough + then at night you stuff your face? Let’s work as a team to get through some not so awesome habits! Please let me know if I can share anything else that may help your journey xo

Hi Sophie! Just curious what those little bottles next to the water bottle are? We live in the middle-of-nowhere Oklahoma, so getting my hands on alkaline water isn’t easy! Thanks!

adrienne! on

THANK YOU for sharing!!!! must have taken a lot of work and thought!! i’ll definitely keep this in mind when making lifestyle choices – especially post-cleanse!! :)))

Jana on

Hi Sophie!!

I finally made it off Insta and on to your website! Every time you post something about your Cacao Magic, I start salivating!! As soon as I get back from Canada, I’m going to stock up. In the meanwhile, tell me — what kind of Alkaline water are you drinking? Kangen? Do you have a system in your own home? Or are you getting it from that place on Main St.?

Sophie on

Rachel: the dinner recipes (curry, etc) will be posted this week! thanks for the request! :)

Sophie on

Hey Robyn!

it’s not that I “can’t” snack on the kids breakfast, or that it isn’t healthy, it’s that even the healthiest of foods shouldn’t be eaten ALL DAY LONG. With kiddos (which I’m sure you know) food is always around, and for my JOB I am constantly playing with new recipes + making food for clients so it can be challenging not to eat ALL.DAY. the kids eat earlier than my body is ready (they sleep for 12 hours straight so their bodies are needing nourishment) so I generally drink my liquids while they eat then attempt to SLOWLY eat my own breakfast without having to run around like a maniac like I have to do while they are eating. make sense? thanks for commenting! xoxo

Sophie on

Hey Kristen!

Usually when I juice I make a large VAT and store it in mason jars for 2 days. If you aren’t using a pressed juicing machine the nutrients aren’t stored as well as pressed, but it is still amazing for you and full of vitamins. You do lose a percentage of the nutrients though. For me, I’d rather have juice that’s a little less nutrient dense than none at all. We have a local juice bar 2 blocks from my house so I typically just purchase several juices at a time and store them in the fridge. I’ve calculated the difference in energy/time/clean up/cost and it’s about equal (buying organic produce to juice it all at home vs purchasing a $9 juice). It’s a PAIN to have to juice everything at home and if it ends up being the same price, I will oftentimes just purchase them. Hope this helps! sending love.

Heather Williams on

Your diet sounds so much like my own Sophie!:) Thank you for sharing this with me:) My life hasn’t been the same since I added Philosophie Superfoods to my day:) Thank you for sharing them with the world!:) I love, love, love them! Do you accept people to do demos anywhere across the country? I’d love to!:)

Kristen on

Thanks for sharing! I have a question about juicing- do you make the juices for yourself daily? Any tips for making juicing more convienent? I know you said you prep your veggies before hand so that could help. Let me know:) I need to add more green juice to my life!

Robyn Law on

Love this! It’s very similar to what I do with our family, although I will prepare the meat/protein but we try to not eat it that frequently. Sometimes I’ll join in with some salmon but here in Saudi we don’t really have much access to organic, grass fed chicken or free range anything! I am curious though, what do you prepare for the kiddos for breakfast that you cannot snack on? As for the afternoon in the park we have VERY similar snacks. My kids LOVE fruit and veggies and smoothies!! Love love loved this!

Rachel on

Will you share some of your dinner recipes (curry or stir fry)? Sounds delish!!

Wholly Eva on

Such a great post Sophie! XO

How to Block Out the Negative Self Talk

How to Block Out the Negative Self Talk

Here's the deal.

If you don't start speaking to yourself with love, you will never ever see yourself as beautiful, fit, toned, pretty, smart, fast…whatever it is you want to look or feel like.

If you are desiring to change an aspect of yourself, FANTASTIC. We are here to grow, evolve, and change, always. But you will absolutely not truly see yourself as that evolved new person if you are continuing to speak negatively about yourself.

In our modern world of social media and technology, we’re CONSTANTLY feeling defeated, less than, judged. Everything you put on your feed is risked for judgment and negative comments. It almost forces you to create the image you want people to see. Out of fear of being hurt and insulted you want to take 1,000 selfies in order to put up the one that catches the dimples perfectly in your cheeks. I think this is absolutely the wrong way to go.

I encourage everyone to remain authentic. The true you is so beautiful and the world deserves to know it. By opening up and being the REAL YOU, you can inspire others in such a profound way. If I walk away each day inspiring one person to live their truth and walk their own path, I feel aligned with the truest version of ME. And that, feels awesome. 

Drink a large cup of SUNSHINE with our Liquid Chlorophyll Sunshine Drops and block out the hate!

Sunshine Drops Liquid Chlorophyll

Here are some simple steps to help you get away from this negative habit:

BUILD AWARENESS

Begin by jotting down in a notebook or on your phone each time you say something unkind to yourself. No matter what it is, take notes and build awareness for 3 FULL DAYS. Just the annoyance of needing to continuously write it down should help minimize the amount you do!

BELIEVE “THERE IS NO PERFECT”

Give yourself a break! It's enormously freeing and not to mention, a huge stress reducer, to stop holding yourself to insanely high standards. Perfect isn't real. Perfectionism is a dangerous place so when you recognize it in yourself, take action to relax your standards just a little. If you give yourself the same empathy you'd show a friend, it will be so much easier to take on the unkind voice and win.

Sophie Jaffe + Noa Jaffe

DEFY SHAME

My hubby speaks to shame a lot.When you feel silly or dumb or like you said something ridiculous, instead of beating yourself up over it, call a friend and tell them how you're feeling. "Hey, I feel so silly, but I'm stuck in a downward spiral and it's only getting worse. Here's what happened..." By saying it out loud, you realize how SMALL of an issue it is and your friend will be there to support you. Shame only works if we keep it a secret! Be vulnerable and see what happens.

REPLACE NEGATIVITY WITH POSITIVITY

In place of negative thoughts and habits, cultivate healthy positive habits:

  • Start a gratitude journal.
  • Create an at-home yoga retreat for yourself where you can relax + zen out.
  • Sign yourself up for a new fitness class or a half-marathon.
  • Put on a cute outfit even if you have no intention of leaving the house.
  • Pick up a positive affirmation card each morning.
  • Take notes to witness your growth in any area of your life + build self-love!
Yoga Poses

At this point, the only challenge you’re left to face is blocking out negative talk and surrounding yourself with support and love. This took years of practice but what we can tell you is to remind yourself of all the love you're worth.

Repeat this mantra: I am SO worthy of love.

Turn to self-care and know when to step away from a situation or maybe, when you may even need to let go of a relationship. Develop healthy boundaries with people and environments. Be careful about the circles you enter and what you follow on social media. If you’re in need of a little body positivity then follow a boss lady who’s all about it. For myself, I’m a new mama again and my feed is covered with other conscious moms practicing what I preach every day. We lift each other up constantly.

Accessing your vulnerability is a challenge but once you do, it can be so liberating. The world will open up and you’ll find an inner strength you never knew you had.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”" —Marianne Williamson, Founder of The Peace Alliance

The Magic of Superfoods: Camu Camu

Berry Bliss Superfoods

As a small business, we often get asked how Philosophie was created. The idea actually came to our founder, Sophie Jaffe right in her kitchen. As a working mama wearing many hats, she realized how wonderful it would be to have a product that would make her life and many others’ lives easier. She decided to have ALL of her beautiful superfoods rolled into one simple package.


Philosophie blends were born and each are incredibly versatile and only enhance a dish, never overpowering it! A trip to Thailand inspired the creation of Berry Bliss.


Berry Bliss is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C. No fillers means you only need a small amount of this perfect mix to feel a shift in your energy! Plus we've added the highest quality, sprouted, raw brown rice protein powder to this incredible blend, which adds a creamy light flavor and a nourishing boost of gamma-aminobutyric acid.


Not only is Berry Bliss great for your health, but it is delicious too—all without any added sugar! In this post, we’re exploring more about camu camu and its vast health benefits.

Camu Camu

CAMU CAMU

Acai, Goji berry and Camu Camu are all exotic, enchanting fruits that are extremely high in vitamin C and A, giving them lots of antioxidant superpowers. Antioxidants help prevent aging and disease by combating the effects of oxidation in our body tissues. Camu Camu is a small red berry that grows in the Peruvian jungle, and has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit on the entire planet – over 20 times the C found in two pounds of oranges!  You’ll find that these superfoods come in many forms including powders, pills and frozen. All can be added to juices, smoothies, or even added to oats or greek yogurt.

Our blend, Berry Bliss, is SUPER high in antioxidants, vitamin A, and protein, and also contains camu camu—one of the most abundant sources for vitamin C in the world!


A fruit that’s native to the Peruvian Amazon, Camu Camu is a potent source of vitamin C (one serving contains 1100 percent of your daily required dose, which is more than nine times the amount found in a medium orange) and may be able to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the body. Mix it into smoothies, oatmeal or yogurt or even add it to your tea (so long as the water isn’t boiling hot).

Berry Bee Honey

How To Use Camu Camu

Camu camu powder has the highest food-based form of vitamin C of any food known on this planet. Camu camu is also high in antioxidants, which can fight off free radicals that can lead to inflammation and disease. Enjoy in your morning yogurt or smoothie with fruits & honey to balance the tart flavor.


Because it’s a whole food, you’re getting phytonutrients, antioxidants, and co-enzymes, which makes it really nutritious for the body.


Camu camu powder is POWERFUL for colds and overall wellness

Of course, most agree that vitamin C is great for immunity, and since camu camu has a TON of vitamin C, it makes sense that it could help with sickness & colds.

5 Winter Self-Care Tips to THRIVE During the Cold

For many of us, winter brings increased stress, dry skin, and a general impulse to count down the days until things get a bit more sunny and warm. But since we can’t wish away the chilly months every year, we’ve got to find ways to THRIVE through the season.

 

It’s time to implement some winter self-care rituals into your routine. And now is as good a time as any to start giving yourself some TLC. Following these self-care tips can help you keep your body, mind, and soul in tip-top shape this cold season.

 

ENJOY WARM DRINKS

It’s winter, so it is cold out. A hot beverage like coffee has plenty of benefits. Coffee is proven to lower rates of certain illnesses and inspire alertness! That means that not only does it improve physical health, but mental clarity and calm. Especially when the cold makes our bodies tense, the hot beverage instantly allows us to unwind. If you’re not a coffee drinker, tea or hot cocoa are great alternatives to keep you toasty.

 

 

CARVE SOME TIME OUT OF EACH DAY FOR PAMPERING

Even if it’s just five minutes, finding some time in your day for some winter pampering will do wonders for your mood and self-image. Winter is notorious for stripping skin of moisture, and the decreased hours we spend soaking up the sun’s glorious rays don’t improve matters either (hello, paleness!).

 

Using a deep-moisturizing mask or nourishing face oil are great ways to rectify scaly, sullen skin – and who doesn’t love slathering deliciously-scented products on their faces in the evening?  Many skincare enthusiasts also recommend dry body brushing in the winter, to exfoliate the skin and to increase circulation.

 

GET ENOUGH SHUT-EYE

In winter, the days become shorter, and our bodies begin to crave a little more rest and relaxation (it’s one of those annoying evolutionary tendencies). To avoid midwinter exhaustion, ensure you’re getting a good 7-9 hours of sleep per night.

 

 

TRY SOME BAKING

Baking is not always easy; however, the oven can keep you warm, even if the recipe doesn’t go well. Baking is a great way to practice following directions and build self-esteem. When a recipe is baked perfectly, you have achieved a great goal for your mental health. The best part is you get to enjoy the delicious warm food.

 

MOVE YOUR BODY

Winter tends to bring out the worst in the couch potatoes among us: as soon as the weather drops, we’re in front of the TV refusing to budge. Unfortunately, that’s possibly the worst thing we could do for our bodies and minds in the winter.

 

Since we need endorphins all year round, we’ve got to keep up our exercise in the colder months. Whether it’s a crisp winter walk or a group yoga class done in the comfort of a studio (or even at home), getting your body moving is vital.

 

 

FIND THE THING THAT RELAXES YOU

It’s so important to keep sight of the strategies and habits which curb our stress levels in the winter. For you, stress release might mean writing in your journal, or listening to music, or taking a long stroll on the beach – whatever it takes to get your mind off everyday stresses.

 

EAT MINDFULLY

Just because it’s not summer anymore doesn’t mean you should let go of your balanced diet. In fact, it’s perhaps even more critical in the winter to eat healthy and mindfully. To ward off all of those unwanted colds and flu, choose hearty, tummy-warming foods such as vegetable stew which will keep you satisfied and energized through lethargic winter days.


Remember to stay hydrated, too – all those cold winds can really whip the moisture out of us! To support your immune system further, you might also want to supplement your diet with a multivitamin, if you’re not taking one already.

 

What are your some of your favorite self-care tips in winter? Share yours with me in the comments below!

Why Antioxidants Matter

So what’s the secret to longevity, vitality and radiance? Simple, eat more antioxidants. 


Antioxidants are molecules that fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are compounds that can cause harm if their levels become too high in your body and are produced naturally within the body in response to environmental toxins like cigarette smoke, sunlight, chemicals, radiation, exercise and inflammation.Free radicals are linked to multiple illnesses, including diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.


While your body has its own antioxidant defenses to help keep free radicals under control you can also find antioxidants in fruits, veggies and SUPERFOODS



What are superfoods?

Superfood is a term sometimes used to describe food with high phytonutrient content that may provide health benefits as a result. For example, blueberries are often considered a superfood (or superfruit) because they contain significant amounts of ANTIOXIDANTS, vitamin C, manganese, and dietary fiber. You don't need specific foods for specific ailments. A healthy diet incorporating a variety of the following superfoods will help you maintain your weight, fight disease, and live longer. 


Here are a few of our favorite superfoods that you can easily work into your daily diet without breaking a sweat. 


Acai, Goji berry and Camu Camu

These are all exotic, enchanting fruits that are extremely high in vitamin C and A, giving them lots of antioxidant superpowers. Antioxidants help prevent aging and disease by combating the effects of oxidation in our body tissues. Camu Camu is a small red berry that grows in the Peruvian jungle, and has the highest vitamin C content of any fruit on the entire planet – over 20 times the C found in two pounds of oranges (wow)!  You’ll find that these superfoods come in many forms including powders, pills and frozen. All can be added to juices, smoothies, or even added to oats or greek yogurt. You can also get all three of these superfoods in a powder blend, like our Berry Bliss Superfood Blend.



Blueberries

If you’re adding superfoods to your overnight oats or yogurt, go ahead and sprinkle some blueberries on them! When it comes to fresh fruit, blueberries win the prize for the highest antioxidant content of them all! It also helps boost your immune system which prevents you from getting sick. Blueberries are excellent for the brain, memory, and vision!  And they are becoming known for a wealth of anti-aging benefits, too. Who knew the fountain of youth would taste so delicious!


Raw Cacao

One of the most abundant sources of antioxidants in the world (far more than blueberries and red wine) and will give you amazing energy and mental clarity. It also has a great amount of Magnesium in it, which most people are deficient in and don’t even know it. Cacao has natural mood-boosting compounds, which help restore natural energy and ease mood imbalances. I love using cacao in my morning coffee and in my favorite sweets and baked goods. 


Raw cacao is a star ingredient to our Cacao Magic blend, which provides the blend’s chocolate flavor. It tastes AMAZING and also provides an energizing, caffeine-free power boost. Just add a spoonful of Cacao Magic to get your protein, calcium, and yummy chocolate fix! 

The Beauty-Boosting Benefits of Collagen

Philosophie Cosmic Elixir

Collagen. A beauty myth or fact? A superfood blend infused with collagen like our Cosmic Elixir is an easy way to help promote vibrant skin, as well as balance and support your mood in your everyday life. Collagen is the most abundant source of protein in your body. It’s a major building block of bones, skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments and helps keep skin glowing and smooth. 


Why do you need Collagen?

The body naturally produces collagen on its own but over time it slowly loses the ability to synthesize enough of it on its own. In supplementing your diet with an adaptogenic and collagen blend you’re supporting your body’s natural ability to produce collagen and keep you feeling blissful longer!


Truthfully: Our body doesn’t need collagen since our body produces an abundance of it when we’re young but by our early twenties the body’s collagen production starts to slow down. And when you factor in environmental and lifestyle factors like sun exposure, air pollution, diet, stress, water intake, and sleep can lead to skin issues, hair health damage and more. With the support of Collagen you can stay feeling confident, glowing and beautiful.

Collagen Beauty Benefits

The Beauty Benefits of Collagen

Skin health is the most well-known benefit of taking collagen. Collagen strengthens, hydrates and supports the elasticity of skin, keeping your complexion looking youthful and glowing. Collagen also supports stronger hair and nails and helps maintain bone and joint health.


Easy Ways to Use a Collagen Superfood Blend

We are so excited by this adaptogen, collagen blend because not only does it taste amazing but it makes it so easy to incorporate extra nutrients into your daily routine. Here are some easy ways to incorporate it into your routine plus two of our new favorite recipes!


✔ Make a grounding morning or evening latte by blending with your favorite nut mylk
