Transitioning into Fall with Miso Eudemonia

 

Eudemonia.


The spirit of goodness. Contentment. The perfect way to describe the feeling of re-emerging into fall. 


Chilled winds and cold, sunny skies are back to remind us of the warmth of the hearth, home, and loved ones. For us at Purpose & Hope, it means settling in to enjoy our soups made with seasonal ingredients.


This month, our taste buds are loving our Miso Eudemonia blend created with our lovely community partners from Strong Arm Farms in Sonoma County. Their hand harvested seaweed is what makes this blend so special - paired with a powerful miso, this soup is a gentle balm for the soul. 


Seaweed contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including iodine, iron, and calcium. Some types can even contain high amounts of vitamin B12. Moreover, it’s a good source of omega-3 fats. With the depletion of soil quality, we found it essential to incorporate seaweed into our soups to replenish the sources of nutrients that we are gravely lacking in our diets.

This desire led us to Strong Arm Farms. The owner, Heidi, sustainably hand harvests her seaweed off of the coast of Sonoma two months out of the year with a small team of volunteers each summer.

We are incredibly proud to use her carefully curated products into our soups. We truly hope that when you are enjoying a bowl of our soups that contain seaweed, that you will be able to taste and feel the difference!

 

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in loving consideration of the dedicated staff at the Charlotte Maxwell Clinic, I encourage you to get involved with their organization to support the community. 


I have been a volunteer at the clinic for the past three years and have learned about the importance of integrative care and the support needed to help individuals move through the challenges that come along with treatment. I love this organization and find such importance in the work that they do. Please consider making a donation so that they can continue their incredible work.
