Cuisine & Conversation: Steaz Connects Women During LA Brunch

What better way to unite and encourage women than by inviting them to retreat to a gourmet restaurant for brunch?! That was the case for a group of women and bloggers who attended a Steaz brunch in LA earlier this month with our company co-founder, Eric, and several members of the newly formed Steaz Women's Wellness Committee.


Steaz SEED Breakfast


The restaurant, Akasha, specializes in food made with organic, natural ingredients from sustainable sources, and of course, the ladies could graciously imbibe chilled Steaz Teas to compliment their cuisine and conversation. The event was another effort to support Steaz's recently introduced social change program: SEED, Social Environmental & Educational Discovery. The initiative supports causes important to women through the provision of annual grants to inspirational individuals and organizations who are actively building a healthier world. You can learn more about SEED in our previous post, Planting a SEED for Women's Wellness.

The SEED program is guided by the Women's Wellness Committee. Several members were in attendance at the brunch including Chef Akasha Richmond - celebrity chef, organic food activist, author, and restaurant owner; Jean Weidemann, PhD - founder and president of the Weidemann Foundation and global pioneer of women's development issues; Patty DeDominic - founder of theInternational Women's Festivals and successful entrepreneur and Kathryn Schuett- Editor ofOrganic Processing Magazine, holistic living expert, and industry champion.

The goal behind the event and the SEED program according to Eric is "to inspire and encourage women to dream, achieve and create change in areas that are most important to them." He also spoke during the event about Steaz and the driving principles behind the company. Several of the ladies at the brunch posted a Whrrl story about their mid-day adventure and attendee, Kim Tracey Prince shares her post-event contemplations at House of Prince.

Whether it's big or small, it all makes a difference. So tell us, are there things you've done or ideas you're entertaining to help build a healthier world?


Peace, Love & Steaz ;)
