tiring work

Simple Soothing Miso Soup

Some nights, you just don't feel like making much of anything. Or doing much of anything. But somewhere, deep down, you know you need to eat. And pizza won't really cut it.

I had a night like this last week. Long days of long hours filled with gratifying but tiring work--sound like your life? Well, it's mine and I am grateful for it, and sometimes tuckered out by it.

I came home and made this simple soothing miso soup and ate the whole damn pot spread out over an hour, doing an eating meditation along with it. It was a really great decision and reset my whole clock, and my mental health.





2 Tbsp miso paste (like the one shown above)

1-2 large organic carrots, shredded

1 Tbsp seaweed of your choice (nori, wakame, dulse), minced

4 large leaves of green or red kale, finely chopped


1) In 2-quart saucepan or pot, bring 2 cups water to a boil, reduce to simmer, add miso paste, seaweed and veggies. Simmer until kale and carrots are soft. 2) Drink in the wonder...sip slowly, chewing each mouthful 15 times before swallowing.
