Hello there! I am sincerely sorry for the lack of posts on this blog! I have missed blogging so much.
What’s new? I am happy to say that I have a job working as a relationship specialist for Hampton Creek Foods!
Hampton Creek is all about connecting people with healthier choices that are far kinder to the planet and the animals. This is something I care about deeply! It’s part of who I am. I have decided I am putting grad school on hold, because I love being on Hampton Creek’s team so much. 🙂 If you haven’t tried their AMAZING cholesterol-free mayo yet, here’s how you can find it! We beat Hellmann’s in a blind taste test–just try it! 😉
Sustainable + Affordable + Delicious. Just the best!
This company is changing the world. I see the changes every day while on the job, and I’m incredibly grateful that I can be a part of it. Working for Hampton Creek is an opportunity for me to use my passion for something bigger than myself. My heart sings when I work for them. That’s beautiful to me. I truly love going to work!
For personal reasons, I haven’t been feeling like myself for a few months. When I wasn’t working, I was feeling uncharacteristically uninspired and unmotivated in pursing my hobbies, like my beloved blog. I had been struggling to find smiling myself again, but I’ve been doing so much better and taking care of myself. When I focus on helping others, I feel like I am doing something right.
Feeling down is normal, and in life there is no pause button. But sometimes you need a little break for yourself. And sometimes you may need a little pick-me-up. Refresh yourself!
I hope you are all doing well. Whether you’re feeling down or need something to refresh yourself after a long day, this ginger tea will serve as a burst of bright, sweet and spicy sunshine that will warm and soothe your insides.
Refreshing Ginger Tisane (Tea)
(makes one steamy cup of comfort)
Total time: 10 minutes or less
- 1 cup of boiling water
- 1 heaping teaspoon of freshly grated ginger (try to get organic if you can)
- 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup (or to your taste)
- a dash of fresh lemon juice (to your taste)
- Pour about 1 cup of boiling water into a glass mug, or if you’re like my mom, use a small rice bowl. ^.^
- Add the grated ginger to the hot water and let it steep for 2-5 minutes.
- Stir in the maple syrup and squeeze some lemon juice into the tea.
- Enjoy while it’s still warm.
The ginger in this tea makes it a natural remedy for indigestion.
Both invigorating and comforting, it can also help clear your head when you have a headache.
Hope you enjoy, and please let me know how it goes if you try it!
I will post some recipes soon in a week or so, but now I’m off to a work trip in Colorado! So exciting! I’ll try to post all my adventures on Instagram.
My first flight by myself! ^.^
Warm wishes–I hope you are taking care of yourself in the best way possible. Do some meditation, go for a run, or make yourself a cup of tea. You deserve it!

This is the first recipe of yours that I tried. I never liked ginger but this is refreshing! Thanks again for helping me out at the store and best of luck with Hampton Creek I saw you guys landed new funding last week!
So great to hear from you! 🙂
I’m glad you liked the tea! I’m about to go make some; it’s perfect for this cold weather! I’m working on some soup recipes soon!
And thanks so much for the well wishes about Hampton Creek! 🙂 Much appreciated!!
Could I use clove honey? I don’t have maple at home. Unless you mean maple syrup for pancakes lol
Btw so glad you’re enjoying your job. I’ve been wanting to try justmayo, where can we find it?
Hehe, thanks for the follow!
And you could probably use any sweetener you like! I used the same pure maple syrup I use for my pancakes ^.^
And thanks, I love my job!! 🙂 Just Mayo is at Whole Foods, Walmart, Target, Kroger and Safeway stores! At Whole Foods it will be in the refrigerated section, whereas in other stores, it will be on the regular shelf. Hope you get to try it soon!
