Silk Soymilk and Startup Life

Huzza! The glory of working at a startup in San Francisco means…free snacks and drinks! ALL DAY, EVERYDAY. Which is a good and bad thing depending on how you look at it. Can you guess how many bags of chips I can eat in one day?! It’s too embarrassing, I’m never telling! One quality I pride myself on is how quickly I can notice when our office kitchen gets restocked. The downside to this is that I find myself eating a lot of unhealthy snacks throughout the day. I’m lucky that our company provides some healthy alternatives though! Or else I probably would have gained 15 pounds by now. Hummus, raw almonds, and Silk Soy Milk are some of the great healthy options in the office kitchen. We are always fully stocked with Silk Soy Milk! Whether my colleagues and I are adding it to our morning cup(s) of coffee, pouring it [Continue Reading…]

Mulled Cider with Fresh Fruit and Spiced Rum

Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? I think my favorite part of Thanksgiving was when I caught my adult cousin literally licking her plate clean :) Trust me, I was thinking of doing the sammme thing…she just beat me to it. Now that Turkey Day over, the Christmas season is starting to set in! Warm fires, snow, hot drinks, fudge, cookies, ugly sweaters, Christmas movies, Christmas SONGS. The list goes on. My favorite drink? This mulled cider!! It’s so warm and tasty. One sip makes me want to curl up under a blanket and watch Christmas movies back-to-back all weekend long (too bad it’s Monday!). And if you’re not a grandma like me who enjoys the occasional spiked drink while watching movies on a Saturday night, I guaranteeeee that this cider would be a hit at any holiday party!! It’s really easy to make and one pot serves a small gathering. [Continue Reading…]

Blueberry Mojitos

Happy Monday! Oh, how I already miss the weekend. So before I go on about this beautiful and delicious drink, I have some news! I am officially starting invisalign! WOAH. I know, random. I’ve been wanting to do it for a while and have finally sucked it up and started the process. The only thing that worries me is that I have to remove the invisalign trays EVERY time I eat and then go brush my teeth. This is going to be an issue because I snack all the time! Like, every hour. So I will be dramatically changing my daily eating habits and will share my journey on invisalign as things start to happen. I got impressions made earlier this week so in about 6-8 weeks, everything will begin! In the meantime, I just going to snack until I drop! Snack, snack, snack…all day long. Oh, and this is [Continue Reading…]

Pumpkin Chai Milkshake

Ah, yes, my love for pumpkin is sneaking up on me again. Remember when I said that I always seem to have some sort of left over pumpkin puree after I make something with it? Well, here is an amazing way to get rid of it. Pumpkin chai milkshakes! This was seriously made in about 5 minutes. If you add in the prep and clean up time, I would say it’s a 15 minute project–AT THE MOST. And I absolutely love chai–to the moon and back–so this recipe is a nice change to my normal chai lattes. Do you guys ever get chai concentrate and make your own lattes? I always do! It’s SOO much cheaper than buying chai in a coffee shop. You just fill your coffee mug with half chai concentrate and half whole milk (or whatever type of milk you prefer but whole milk works best), then [Continue Reading…]
