Make Every Food a Superfood
The Paleo movement borrows aspects from many other diets. There is some overlap with the vegan community, and plenty to be learned from the local food movement. The raw food framework has even contributed to the blossoming of Paleo – who hasn’t tried coconut milk chia pudding by now? Taking a cue from all three is Philosophie, a company committed to the power of raw superfoods.
Created by Sophie Jaffe, a certified Raw Food Nutritionist and Raw Food Chef, personal trainer and accomplished yoga teacher living in Los Angeles, Philosophie aims to provide “easy, delicious and inspired” tools for healthy eating. Sophie believes, given the right building blocks, the body is fully capable of restoring itself to full health and boundless energy.
Philosophie’s superfood powders are naturally rich in vitamins and minerals to help the body repair and glow on a cellular level. The potent ingredients within – from fruit extracts and raw cacao powder, to ancient reishi mushrooms – combine synergistically to support body processes. You’d never know you were eating your medicine from how good these superfoods taste.
Created to support the body’s detoxification processes, Green Dream combines spirulina, maca, mesquite, hemp powder, chia seeds, rice bran and vanilla in a deep, lustrous green powder. Try a scoop blended in with coconut water, avocado and fresh pineapple for a creamy caffeine-free source of energy.
Cacao Magic was developed as an anti-aging, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory supplement, with powerful superfoods like cacao powder, cacao nibs, reishi, mesquite, maca, chia seeds, rice bran and vanilla to support healing. A little goes a long way, especially in a hot cup of Bulletproof Coffee or in any number of chocolate Paleo treats.
The Berry Bliss powder is made of antioxidant- and Vitamin C-rich extracts from acai and goji berries, pomegranate, camu camu and mangosteen. This beautifying, stress-fighting, mood-enhancing superfood blend is bright pink in color, and helps provide a glow from the inside out. Blend Berry Bliss into a chilled, fruity gazpacho, or stir some into homemade lemonade to pack a nutritional punch.
All Philosophie products are organic, raw and gluten free. Toss a spoonful into puddings, blend some into a sorbet or hide a pinch here and there in soups and sauces. The smooth, fine powders blend easily into any liquid medium, while chia seeds or cacao nibs provide a fun crunch.
Available in small packages or bulk orders, Philosophie products are available for purchase online. In addition to superfood powders, Philosophie also offers cleanses and body care items, along with superfood-infused Manuka honey produced in Malibu.
