We Have a Book Cover!

I'm excited to share this with you! The cover is done, the book is written, and it's all been submitted to CreateSpace for approval. I should have a proof copy in a few days, and once I correct anything that needs fixing and give it the final thumbs-up, it will be ready to publish!

Sales outlets will be print-on-demand on Amazon and CreateSpace, and I think I can also make it available on Kindle. The technology is so amazing! It's even better than it was just a few months ago when I did the coloring book coloring book.

So stay tuned, or put your name on my mailing list so you'll be the first to know when Change Your Sauce, Change Your Life is ready to order!

Tsubi Soup Review

I love reviewing new vegan products. The most recent request for my consideration arrived in my mailbox all the way from Japan. Tsubi Soup is a new (to the US) company, offering portable, instant, healthy, delicious miso soup. What a great idea!

Tsubi Soups are all natural, organic, and vegan. They're also free of GMOs, chemicals, gluten, and, since you might be wondering, radiation. According to the website (which is really well done), all the ingredients come from a safe and healthy place in the southern tip of Japan. So there you go. No worries.

The soup comes as small freeze-dried blocks, about an inch and a half square, in little foil packets that keep it all fresh for up to 1 1/2 years. Just drop the soup-cube in a cup, add 2/3 cup of boiling water, and you have soup. It tastes great with no added seasonings or sauces needed, so it's perfect for travel and work days when you want a handy snack in your bag.

I also used it in my morning hot miso-and-greens smoothie when I had run out of actual miso paste at home. It was perfect. Tsubi Soup saved my breakfast and tasted every bit as good as what I normally make.

You can order Tsubi Soup online for now. Tsubi herself is in the process of bringing her soups to US stores, and I look forward to meeting her when she visits Portland in March. Thank you, Tsubi Nishitani - CEO / Founder of Tsubi Soup, for reaching out to me about your wonderful product. I look forward to seeing it on store shelves near me! Come on Whole Foods!
