Butternut Squash + Brussels Sprouts GF StuffingGather:
- 1 pound butternut squash, cubed
- 1 pound brussels sprouts, halved
- 1 medium gala apple, cut into a 1/2 inch dice
- 2 shallots, thinly sliced
- 3 T olive oil, divided into 2 T + 1 T
- 1 C onion, diced
- 1 C celery, diced
- 10 slices bread of choice: crusty sourdough, dry cornbread, whole grain, or, if you are gluten free, millet bread from Food For Life will work nicely. Prior to preparing the recipe, leave bread out for a day to become slightly dry, then cut into cubes.
- 1 1/2 C low sodium vegetable broth (plus extra as needed)
- 2 t fresh rosemary, chopped
- t fresh thyme
- t chopped fresh sage
- 1/3 C dried cranberries or dried goji berries
- 1/3 C pecans or walnuts
- Sea salt + pepper to tasteDO THIS:
- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Toss the squash, brussels sprouts, apples, + shallots in 2 T oil, season well with salt + pepper. Roast till vegetables are very tender (I actually like my sprouts a bit singed) and remove from oven. Reduce oven heat to 350.
- Heat other tbsp oil in a large pot. Sautee the onion + celery till translucent (about 5-8 min). Add the bread cubes and allow them to get golden brown with the veggies in the oil. Add a dash of salt and pepper.
- Add the roasted vegetables, vegetable broth, cranberries (or goji berries), pecans, + seasonings. Stir the mix till the broth has almost entirely absorbed in the toasted bread. Transfer to a baking sheet + bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Serve hot.

Let’s call it a steak night! Well, kind of. This scrumptious, roasted cauliflower dressed in a zesty Green Dream tomato sauce will totally hit the spot.
Cauliflower is an excellent blank canvas. You can steam or blanch it to keep its essential flavors intact, but by roasting or sautéing it, you can bring out its sweetness. Cauliflower will absorb the oil and seasoning, soaking up flavors much the way eggplant does. But it remains firmer. We’ve added Green Dream to a yummy marinara sauce for a little boost of plant-based protein, antioxidants, and of course, energizing superfood greens!
This is a super simple dish to prepare, and the sauce is a pure knockout. Trust me! This is the perfect family dish for all your backyard cookouts and gatherings.
1 head of cauliflower
1 jar of favorite marinara
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tbsp harissa
1 tsp Green Dream
Salt + pepper to taste
Slice the head of Cauliflower vertically, like you are slicing bread. Place on a baking sheet in a preheated oven, 400 degrees. Drizzle EVOO, salt and pepper and roast for 15 or so minutes, each side. While your cauli steaks cook, combine marinara, harissa, and Green Dream in a pot on the stovetop and warm up. Place warmed sauce on a plate, add roasted cauli steaks, sprinkle Nutritional Yeast and more Green Dream or salt + pepper if you prefer!
Breakfast just got even better with this colorful superfood layered yogurt parfait! So simple and so clean, it’s a perfect morning treat when you’re craving something a little more than avocado toast. Food isn’t just nourishment, but can also be art and this recipe is the best of both.
Creamy layers of yogurt, flavored with our nourishing Green Dream, energizing Cacao Magic and immune-boosting Berry Bliss plus layered with granola and a pitaya puree, this is the recipe of our superfood dreams!
For each layer, all you need is a nourishing yogurt of your choice, plus Philosophie Superfoods for added nutrients and a healthy serving of plant-based protein. A few spoonfuls of raw granola provide extra fiber and will also keep you full in between the layers of yogurt–a tasty trio of Green Dream, Berry Bliss, and Cacao Magic.
3 cups of yogurt of your choice
1 tsp Green Bee Honey or sweetener of choice
1 tsp Berry Bee Honey or sweetener of choice
1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey or sweetener of choice

What flavors remind you of summer? The refreshing flavor of lemon is one of our favorites and we’ve created the perfect little toast to celebrate summer!
For this toast creation we’ve taken our Cacao Magic Superfood Blend which has tons of vitamin and antioxidant powers, our Berry Bee Honey for extra vitamin C and healing properties, and Coconut Magic Coconut Butter, making this a perfect mid-day boost.
We love drizzling on our supercharged raw honey due to its antibiotic properties, energy-lifting powers, and plant-based protein from brown rice. This natural sweetener includes pomegranate, acai, goji, and camu-camu (ALL organic!), which are incredibly high in antioxidants.
We topped these little beauties with bee pollen and dried lemon slices which you can buy or make on your own by slicing and baking in the oven at its lowest temperature for 4-5 hours.

It may sound crazy but the combination of chocolate and avocado create a rich, smooth and decadent texture without any hint of avocado. Avocado offers healthy fats, fiber and makes any smoothie or treat you’re making - in this case, batter - super thick and creamy!
Using avocado in your baked good recipes is a perfect healthy substitute for butters or oils and the Cacao Magic gives these cookies a rich, chocolate flavor with extra nutrients!
This recipe was created by Kelly and originally adapted from a recipe by Blair of @balancewithb.
1 ripe avocado
½ cup coconut sugar
1 cage-free egg
1 tbsp water
Dash of vanilla extract
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ cup Cacao Magic
¼ cup cacao powder
Large handful of chocolate chips
Sprinkle of sea salt
Mash avocado and mix well with coconut sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy and smooth.
Add in baking powder, Cacao Magic and cacao powder, scraping sides of bowl until well incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Top with a few more chocolate chips for good measure & a touch of sea salt, then bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 12 minutes. These will be super fudgy, but firm up as they cool! Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
Hydration doesn’t have to be boring! Besides our daily dose of sunshine water with liquid chlorophyll there are so many fun ways to get creative with your water. Making a mocktail with a herbal infusion and superfoods adds nutrients to amp up your system and makes it tastier and more vibrant.
A herbal infusion can look like flowers, herbs, spices and fruit to everyday beverages like water, sparkling water or kombucha. These herbal elements have a deliciously subtle taste, don't add extra sugar and add their own set of health benefits depending on the herbs you use.
Goji berries protect the eyes, support your immune system, and promote healthy skin. Rose provides a bit of magic and a boost of antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids, and essential A, C, D, E, and B3 vitamins. We’ve also added our Berry Bliss which is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C.
Make sure to top it off with berries and ice for a beautiful spring refresher!
1 cup hot water
4 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp dried rose petals
UPON SERVING -
Kombucha or sparkling water
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp Berry Bliss
Optional: fresh mint, maple syrup or honey to sweeten
Steep the goji berries and rose petals in hot water for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight) or until the goji berries are soft and the water turns slightly pink and infused with the flavors of the goji berry and rose.
Strain the goji berries and rose from the water and then add kombucha or sparkling water, Berry Bliss, lemon juice and mixed berries. You can add ice for an extra cool beverage.
