Lizzy: Head Baker/Product Development

Bread: Loaf and bagel box. If I was a customer I’d order this, with a sourdough and togarashi bagels. The togarashi is my favorite because it’s spicy and super flavorful, full of beneficial foods (like nori) and we are the only ones who make it! It also is a fusion of cultures, just like us.

Blooms: I like roses (so basic but listen...) because they are the workhorses of the flower industry. Billions of roses are scheduled to bloom to the perfect level of open but not all the way open on one day out of the year. These strong flowers stand up to all of our demands with absolute grace, they smell like heaven and are a symbol of love between people. 

Hae: Operations/Logistics

 

Bread: Our classic sourdough can do no wrong and will always deliver the goods. 
Blooms: Gardenias. I have very fond memories attached to it because my roommate at the time who I adored used to bring them home and place it in a bowl of water in the bathroom or other parts of the house. I also love that the flower forces you to appreciate it as much as possible while it lasts because it bursts with so much fragrance and then it withers away in such a short span of time.

Iylla: Creative Direction

 

Bread: My favorite product is the FIRE CRACKERS. I love to snack alllll day and the crackers are perfectly appropriate for grazing with dips or almond butter.
Blooms: Marigolds forever 🧡🧡🧡 this flower gives me life. It feels like the sun when I have them around me. They smell like summer -- it's my favorite season, and when they are in bloom and popping up at farmers markets it's pure joy. Marigolds are also used to encourage optimism, good luck, and generally happy thoughts. I feel that.

Ana: Ecommerce Advisor 

Breads: Super Seed, I'm obsessed and could literally eat it three times a day.
Blooms: California poppies, blue hydrangeas, and chamomile!

Breads: The Olive Bread is an absolute favorite, my partner and I can't get enough of it! A loaf rarely lasts more than 24 hours in our house. Also, the fire crackers are addicting ~ on their own, or topped with a creamy cheese and a drizzle of local honey.
Blooms: I'm bloom obsessed. Lately I've been loving on protea and nasturtium, but peonies will always be at the top of my list.

Mom's Toasts

Mom's Toasts
Summers in South Louisiana are the kind of hot that requires twice daily showering. My Mom usually kept sliced summer melons in the fridge and in that heat, it's more satisfying than ice cream. For an afternoon snack, Mom would make something I consider to be a classic sweet and savory flavor combination: cheese toast and cantaloupe. I now realize it isn’t considered a classic by anyone but me.  Continue reading

Commitment to Climate Change

Commitment to Climate Change
Here at Super Bloom, we believe it's OUR responsibility as a company to make moves toward sustainability. One step we’ve taken is our packaging! A while ago, we made the switch to compostable cellophane bags for our breads and other products. We wanted to reduce the amount of plastics in our packaging all together, starting with the bread bags. Continue reading

Pumpernickel Pleasure

Pumpernickel Pleasure
Traditional Pumpernickel is made from cracked whole grain rye and was developed by german peasants who needed to make healthful bread but had no access to a grain mill. Often fortified with molasses, cocoa powder or coffee, this dark and bitter bread is packed with nutrients and the Super Bloom version is no different! We start with our 100% naturally fermented sourdough base, adding only coffee and caraway seeds for color and health benefits. Continue reading

Best Bread Friend | Rachel Katz

Best Bread Friend | Rachel Katz

We are super inspired by women who take their biggest personal challenge in life and somehow use it as a springboard for success. One to watch: Rachel Katz.

Who is she? @rachel_katz 

She’s a yoga teacher, Intuitive Nutritional Scientist (B.S.), certified Alternative Nutritionist, and host of, The Full Life Podcast. We like her.

After surviving clinical depression, anxiety, OCD, and an eating disorder that had her weighing as little as 88 lbs, she created a wellness brand centered around thoughtful self care and healing from trauma. We like her approach to nutrition: “No food is bad food.” No one diet or lifestyle will work for everyone, and food shaming is never OK.

Her Instagram feed and podcasts are stocked with simple, reasonable advice for living that we all need to take from time to time. She’s not afraid to get personal. In one episode of her podcast, she discusses toxic positivity in social media with two of her close friends: Julian and Alex. 

Julian says: The “get over it mindset” is harmful and it shows that something you are feeling and expressing is making them uncomfortable.

Alex says: Its, “unrealistic to be happy all the time.” and toxic positivity ignores the need to look at the deeper wounds recent trauma can open back up.

Rachel says: Sometimes being “mentally over it is not enough, your body will react and you have no control over it”

So Rachel takes to the internet posting guided meditations, interviews with doctors and wellness industry pros and even a blog called: “how to stay grounded during uncertain times”

My favorites from that post:

    • "Put your phone on airplane mode before bed & don’t turn it off of airplane mode in the AM until you’ve had a full morning routine."
    • "Take your socks and shoes off and walk around barefoot outside"
    • "Do one self-care activity a day, whether it’s throwing on a face mask, doing your makeup simply to uplift your spirit, baking something yummy, or watching trash reality TV, pick one small self-care activity to do for yourself every day.”
    • Yes, watching trash TV is self care.

Rachel loves our bread and we love collaborating with her!

Here is what she says about us:

“Super Bloom bakery makes the best gluten-free & vegan sourdough EVER and makes me feel less sad about not being able to eat gluten!”

“My favorite way to eat the bread is with some organic butter + raw cheddar or as a sandwich with scrambled eggs, bacon, avo, arugula & rosemary or garlic mayo!”
