Recipe Round-up: 5 Superfood Packed Packable Lunches

The boys are back in school and I’m feeling this major energy shift to get back to hustlin’. This calls for all the potent, nutrient-dense lunches full of all the delicious superfoods I could ever need. Philosophie Babe, Marissa Cohen, scoured our Philosphie recipe database for some of our all-time packable favs.


While we’re still soaking up every last bit of the summer sun, fall is just around the corner. Making the transition back to school, college, and work schedules can be stressful. Packing a nourishing lunch is a great way to fuel your day and give yourself something to look forward to before that mid-afternoon lull. Here are my top 5 packable Philosophie superfood lunches to enjoy all week long.

Monday – Winter Superfood Salad

Start your week off right with this delicious salad. With a hearty mix of veggies, wild rice, eggs, and a delicious Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend infused balsamic dressing, this salad will keep you satisfied through your busiest afternoons.


Gather This:

FOR THE SALAD

2 cups organic mixed greens

Tuesday – Empty the Fridge Curry

Batch cooking is a must for busy weeks. This curry recipe uses whatever you have on hand for a flavorful, wholesome meal. It is perfect lunch as we transition into the cooler autumn months. From an energetic perspective, root vegetables and spices like turmeric and ginger have grounding properties to keep you calm during stressful days at the desk.


Gather This:

4 cans coconut milk

3 sweet potatoes

1 parsnip

2 C carrots

2 C green beans

1 C snap peas

Pinch of garam masala, tumeric + cumin

Bragg's Sea Kelp Seasoning

Curry leaves

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend


Do This:

Add all ingredients (vegetables, milk, then spices) to a crockpot and cook on high for approximately 4 hours. After your curry's cooked, add the Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend, serve up in your favorite bowl, and ENJOY!

Wednesday – Green Dream Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

This one will make your co-workers jealous. Stuffed peppers are simple and delicious. Try making this recipe for dinner one night and bringing the leftovers the next day.


Gather This:

4 bell peppers

4 C quinoa or rice (cooked)

½ C chopped onion

10 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend (divided)

S + P (to taste)

Cheese (optional)


Do This:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit. Sauté garlic and onions in a splash of olive or coconut oil then mix in the quinoa and add the seasonings to taste. Cut off the top of the bell peppers and remove any seeds. Stuff the bell peppers with quinoa mix, cover with foil and bake for 10 mins. Then uncover and bake for 15 more mins. Add cheese when desired, while baking for golden brown, or immediately after pulling out from oven. Finish with a sprinkle with Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend.

Thursday – Zoodle Pesto Pasta

Who doesn’t love pasta? This Zoodle Pesto Pasta is full of fiber, plant based protein, and healthy fats, unlike traditional boxed pasta. Get creative and add toppings like hemp seeds, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and tempeh to suit your liking.


Gather This:

2 zucchinis (one per person for zoodles)

1/4 C olive oil

3/4 C cashews

1/2 C pine nuts

1 C basil

2 T water

1 T nutritional yeast

1 tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

1 clove of garlic

1 tsp garlic powder (optional)

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp Bragg's Organic Sea Kelp Delight (optional)

1 tsp hemp seeds for seasoning

 

Do This:

Cut both ends off of the zucchini. Follow the directions for your spiralizer and transform your zucchini into thin ribbons, placing the final product into two large bowls. Mix all of the pesto ingredients in a high-speed blender. If the mixture isn’t incorporating properly, feel free to add more water and/or olive oil to get things moving. Divide the pesto sauce evenly amongst the “pasta” and stir it all together! Optional (but delicious) toppings include: hemp seeds, herbs, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts, and tempeh!


Friday – Brain Boosting Smoothie

On days when you can’t be bothered to chop or roast veggies (we feel you), depend on your blender. Smoothies are a great meal replacement if they have the right balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats to sustain you. This Brain Boosting Smoothie checks all of the boxes. Chocolate for lunch is perfectly acceptable when it comes from our high-vibe Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend. Make it even more delicious with an extra spoonful of one of the Philosophie coconut butters for extra brain power.


Gather This:

1 C nut milk

1 frozen banana

2-3 T chopped walnuts

1 T Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend

1 T coconut oil

1 T unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tsp Cacao Bee Honey

1 tsp cinnamon

Two handfuls ice

Organic pomegranate seeds, cacao nibs, or chopped walnuts (for toppings)


Do This:

Add all ingredients (except your toppings) to a high-speed blender and blend until creamy and smooth. If it’s too thick, add a bit more nut milk. Pour into your favorite glass, add your toppings, and enjoy!

Green Gluten-free Pumpkin Waffles

I think we can agree that most mornings we crave carbs and heavy foods, which is why bagels are so popular. We’ve been “fasting” all night so our bodies are craving replenishment. I’m definitely a fan of gluten here and there but if you have it first thing in the morning you’ll more likely to hit a crash much earlier in the day than you would like. I believe that you DON’T have to sacrifice things that look good, taste good and make you feel good just because it's healthy for you. These nutrient-dense green gluten-free pumpkin waffles hit all three!


Pumpkin gets a bad rep during the holidays because of the recipes it’s used in but it’s actually a superfood. The carotenoids that give the squash their bright orange color are converted by the body into vitamin-A, which promotes skin and eye health. One particular carotenoid that can be found in pumpkins, beta-carotene, is an antioxidant that has even been linked to a decreased risk of some cancers. Pumpkins are also full of digestion-friendly, hunger-curbing fiber as well as potassium, a vital mineral that can help balance electrolytes after an intense fitness sesh. 


We’ve also added our Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend which gives you 10g of protein to one tablespoon and our latest babe, Fall Vibes Pumplin Pie Superfood Blend which includes both adaptogens + antioxidant-rich superfoods with the traditional fall spices that make up pumpkin spice. 


This recipe is so fun to make with your kids or the next time you have your friends over for brunch! 

Gather This:

1 can organic pumpkin puree

5 large organic free-range eggs (or chia eggs)

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

1 large handful of spinach

½ cup almond milk

½ cup coconut flour

¾ cup tapioca flour

1 tsp vanilla extract

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp baking powder

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 tsp pink sea salt

1 tsp Fall Vibes Pumpkin Pie Superfood Blend

1 tbsp raw honey or sweetener of choice 

Do This:

Mix all ingredients into a high-speed blender. Add mixture to a pre-heated waffle iron + cook until crispy on the outside (cooking time will vary depending on your iron). Top with your favorite toppings of choice! We used strawberries, bee pollen, pomegranate and walnuts but it would taste amazing with maple syrup or anything else you’d like!

Simple Fall Fennel Salad with Kale + Beets

We’re getting fancy up in here! But not really, because this dish is actually so simple to make and super fall reset-friendly. You can make any dish more health-conscious and nourishing by simplifying the ingredients, cooking with love and really filling your plant with color. This perfect little salad is filled with color and bursting with flavor. You’re basically eating fall on a plate and it’s such a delight to cook and enjoy. 


Fennel is an interesting root veggie with a peak growing season in fall and winter during the cooler months. It’s light licorice flavor and crunchy texture is surprisingly addicting and works beautifully with roasted veggies or other savory dishes. It can also be used in stews and soups or act as a red on your favorite protein dishes. The vitamin and mineral content in fennel helps to build and support bone structure as well as support a strong metabolism. 


Adding roasted beets, spiralized zucchini, kale and a touch of Green Dream Savory Blend makes this late lunch or dinner salad taste as good as it looks. Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Gather This:

1 bulb of fresh fennel

1 head of organic kale

3 large red beets 

⅓ cup walnuts

1 zucchini 

1 tsp Green Dream Savory Blend

1-2 tbsp EVOO

Cut and roast beets for 25 min. at 400℉. While that roasts, chop up your kale and fennel then set aside. Spiralize 1 zucchini and set aside. Saute fennel and kale for 5 min. in a healthy dose of EVOO. Pull beets from oven and combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss with Green Dream Savory Blend, plate and enjoy!

Clean-Eating Pomegranate Coconut Yogurt Bowl

I love fall most of all for all the delicious fruits + veggies that come in season. They’re easily some of my favorite and one of them, pomegranate, is at the top of my list. Pomegranates have symbolized everlasting life and vibrant health across many cultural traditions, from ancient mythologies to cherished religious texts. They are the only food that contains a compound called punicalagin, which has been linked to lower cholesterol levels, healthy blood pressure, and decreases in the atherosclerotic plaque that causes heart blockages. The seed at the center is also incredibly rich in fiber, while the tender flesh around the seed may promote joint health and reduce the risk of depression! So, so good for you and the perfect fruit to enjoy during a reset!


Pomegranate seeds play beautifully in a nourishing + simply coconut yogurt bowl. Pair it with some Green Dream and you have a tasty, yet yummy afternoon lunch!

Gather This:

¾ cup Coconut Cult Yogurt (or any other dairy-free yogurt of your choice)

½ cup pomegranate seeds

½ unsweetened coconut shreds

½ cup walnut

1 tbsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

Optional: drizzle of Green Bee Honey


Do This:

Scoop the Coconut Cult Yogurt into your favorite bowl. Top with pomegranate seeds, walnut, coconut shreds and the Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. If you’d like a touch of added sweetness, drizzle on some Green Bee Honey and enjoy!
