Here’s What I Learned from Human Nature’s #ReadtheLabel Challenge

Skin care, to me, has always been a vital part of wellness. More than just for vanity, the condition of our skin says so much about the body’s state of health.  After all, the skin is our largest organ. Continue reading Here’s What I Learned from Human Nature’s #ReadtheLabel Challenge

This Krusty Pancake Recipe Will Make You Feel Good at Breakfast

Pancakes are my go-to comfort food at breakfast. The fact that this recipe is choc-ful of fiber makes it even better. Made these during a period of PMS and perfected the recipe on the third try. Now it’s ready to be shared with you. <3

Sidenote: I was also bloated like crazy so I kept my Anti-bloat caps from Fitique Nutrition close to me. And yes I spelled Krusty with a “K”!

Clean and Mean: Green Bar Now Delivers to Your Doorstep

The wait is finally over–for me, at least. Green Bar, a vegan cafe based in Alabang, has set up a kitchen in Makati allowing them to deliver to those who do not frequent the south. While they cannot bring the cafe over to us here for the full dining experience, it’s good enough that they have expanded their services and made their food more accessible especially because I think this is something everyone (non-vegans included) would enjoy.

They stuffed me silly one day and had me try nearly all the items on their menu. While I got to taste everything (yes, I did!), I made sure friends and family got to try too because I didn’t want to miss out on another opportunity to prove that vegan food could be THIS good.

So what was in my package? Here’s a blow-by-blow of each item.

#OneFitYear with The Superfood Grocer – (Giveaway ENDED)

Here’s the second instalment of the One Fit Year giveaway! I’m so excited to tell you guys what the Superfood Grocer is sharing with you.

I’ve discovered the use of Superfoods in my smoothies back in 2012. I’ve been vegetarian for a year back then and didn’t know what I was missing until I found The Superfood Grocer on one of the racks in the yoga studio I practiced in at the time.

The Superfood Grocer offers a wide range of products that give you and your body a BOOST. These are the sort of stuff I douse myself with each time I feel weak or drained of energy. My favourites are Spirulina and Maca which I use for post-workout smoothies. They’re perfect for recovery as they speed up the body’s repair process naturally. Maca helps me sleep better too. Another one is the Vanilla Hemp Rice Protein which is the perfect, plant-based alternative to Whey.

CHECK THIS OUT: The Wholesome Table Raises the Bar for #CleanEats

Saturday mornings have become a favorite ever since I got my girls to practice yoga with me at the Beyond High Street Studio. The early Saturday hang has replaced our nights out and has given us so much more time to bond and well…eat.

Conveniently, The Wholesome Table has opened its doors to the public. It’s a very short walk from the studio and offers healthy, organic dishes, perfect for post-yoga/workout meals. We headed straight for the place right after my morning class without having to think about it.

I loved the quaint and homey interior, the huge windows bursting with natural light and every little detail that made the place very cozy.

Their menu offers a variety of meat and seafood dishes and options for those who are on plant-based diets (vegetarians and vegans) and those with diet restrictions (nut-free, gluten-free, etc.). The great thing about this is that everything is organic. Even their sauces are made from scratch. No shortcuts, just clean food. Unfortunately, all tofu dishes (which was in most veg options) were not available that morning so I ended up ordering a Buddha Bowl. I also shared a delicious Margherita pizza with the girls. Their lemongrass iced tea also tasted great.

Pressed juices and superfood smoothies were also offered. If I’m not mistaken, The Healthy Grocery provides them with superfood to add into the blended beverages.

Check out the photos from my recent trip.

This pizza was gone in minutes. ‘Nuf said.
