Why We Picked Philosophie
- Philosophie and founder, Sophie Jaffe, are actually the inspiration for SwitchGrocery! Sophie is a wonderful and inspiring human being, and her passion for her business and healthy living is what breathes life into all her products. (Plus: Sophie is an avid supporter of small businesses like SwitchGrocery and reaches out to them first when considering partnerships!)
- Philosophie protein powders are the only ones I’ve tried that doesn’t cause my tummy to swell. It’s also low in net carbs so it checks all the boxes!
- Canadians deserve amazing products like this as quickly as possible.
I believe that awesome companies should be able to get their products to customers quickly, without waiting years to get on the shelves of traditional retail stores. Plus, the food you eat should make you feel good and help you on your health journey!
Philosophie is all of those things and we are so excited to be able to bring it to you!
Behind the Company
Sophie Jaffe started Philosophie - creating and curating every single one of their blends - right out of her kitchen. Being raised by her mother who is a holistic nurse practitioner, Sophie always had an affinity for healthy eating and wellness! After obtaining a degree in health psychology from UCLA, she began working at an organic raw food juice bar in Hollywood which began her interest in experimenting with creating custom cleanse programs - thus, the seedlings of Philosophie were planted! She found motivation in wanting to change the eating habits of others (even acquiring some high-profile celebrity clients like Gerard Butler and George Clooney), as well as those of herself.
Philosophie’s mission is to help people achieve their most optimal state of health by making it as effortless as possible to get complete nutrition in every meal. In the early days of the business, Sophie would run around all over Los Angeles to collect all of her superfood ingredients. Demand eventually got too large and with her second pregnancy, the work too demanding, so that was when they expanded their operations to a commercial kitchen and streamlined the process by creating a fixed product line. This type of commitment Sophie (an actual superhuman!) has to Philosophie’s mission seeps into her company. She wants people to enhance the love, appreciation, and respect they have for themselves and a huge part of this is being kind to our bodies i.e. eating beautiful, nourishing foods!
What is it?
Superfoods claim their title because of these ingredients’ exceptional nutrient density. Philosophie’s superfood products are unique from other detox programs on the market because they nourish the body with whole, live, healthy and nutrient-rich foods!
Each Philosophie Superfood + Protein Blend is raw, vegan, dairy free, gluten-free, and has no filler s(i.e. no artificial sweeteners and no preservatives). Each of the recipes were created by Sophie right in her kitchen for her own family. The protein powder blends have a hemp or brown rice protein base so it doesn’t hurt the tummy!
Each blend was created with a specific purpose:
Green Dream (Detoxifying) - Created when Sophie was pregnant with her first child and needed more nourishment for her body. Its healthy dose of greens and detoxification properties make it a beautiful blend for cleansing and resetting the system.
Berry Bliss (Beautifying) - Inspired by Sophie’s trip to Thailand with its lush tropical fruits and exotic flavours.
Cacao Magic (Energizing) - Created when Sophie’s mom was battling cancer and Sophie learned about the healing, adaptogenic properties of reishi mushroom and the naturally energizing properties of raw cacao.
Who should use Philosophie?
All of Philosophie's products are satisfying and delicious without compromising your health with artificial sugars or sweeteners! So, we think everyone should use it! We all need some superfoods in our lives!
The best thing about these blends is that they can be added to absolutely any food or drink, making it easy to enrich every meal with the amazing health benefits of the world’s most powerful superfoods. "When the body receives optimal nourishment from these wholesome, plant-based sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals, it more readily releases unneeded material and toxins, leaving you feeling renewed and vibrantly healthy."
Philosophie products are so versatile! The efficacy of Cacao Magic and Green Dream is not impacted by heat so I often add it to baking, mix into yogurt, LOVE adding it into chia puddings, smoothies, and I use it to make my toddler pesto and Green Dream Bars! The blends have helped so many of our Customer Friends fulfill their nutrition needs easily and in the yummiest way!
Love, love, love Cacao Magic! I mainly use it to make chia puddings, but it's also great blended in coffee for a delicious mocha, mixed with almond milk for hot chocolate or chocolate milk, or mixed with nut butters for a tasty treat! It's got great flavour, and it's a fun way to get in some superfoods :)" - Christine
I love this protein powder that I sneak in my daughter’s homemade “chocolate milk”. Toddlers are such picky eaters and she is obsessed with chocolate milk I make at home that’s sugar free. I love that I can sneak in this nutritious protein powder without worries of sugar highs and crash for her. Love the Philosophie products, definitely my favourite line so far in the store. Thanks Switch Grocery for making it available in Canada!" - Eden
