Love Food, Don’t Waste

Post Content

Foodless Plate CampaignStudies show that we waste over 2,000 tons of food every single day in Metro Manila. And this is such a heart-breaking fact esp if we are aware that there are thousands, if not millions of people who don’t eat a decent meal at least three times a day. Thus, Healthy Options came up with an idea on how to solve the food wastage problem. And I am totally on-board in joining this campaign to fight food wastage!

Too much food gets thrown out. It’s time to take a stand against food wastage! Join the Love Food, Don’t Waste campaign now.

Here’s how:

  1. After eating, post a photo of your empty plate on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.
  2. Include a caption and don’t forget the #foodlessplate hash tag.
  3. Share your #foodlessplate photo on your other social media accounts.
  4. Tag the Healthy Options Facebook page (fb.com/HealthyOptionsPhilippines), Twitter (@_HealthyOptions), and Instagram (@HealthyOptionsPH) accounts.
  5. A donation will be made to Hands On Manila Foundation, Inc.’s EAT TO FEED program once we reach 500 entries. So invite other friends to join the cause!

You can submit one photo per day. Your #foodlessplate photos need to be set to public in order for them to count.

We can all help stop Food Wastage. Remember, every single plate matters. Love Food, Don’t Waste.

Upload a photo of your #foodlessplate to feed someone in need.


Bacon Margherita Pizza

Post Content

After a long, productive and fulfilling day running around doing wedding errands, we decided to dine out as a simple treat.

There’s a new Pizza Hut branch at Farmer’s Cubao and there are quite a number of interesting new dishes added to their menu — we’re here to try them out!

Bacon Margherita Pizza. Seems this pizza has three kinds of cheese, huge tomato slices, basil and tasty BACON STRIPS!!! This was the highlight of my night!

Although I only ate a slice. I am not forgetting that I am getting married in a few weeks time so I still need to watch my diet to fit into my gown! Haha!

This is the look of a tired but happy couple.

I thought Pizza Hut offered the same old pizza and pasta menu they had for years but I was wrong, they have a lot of new dishes that are both delicious and affordable. If you’re stuck eating the same old lunch or dinner, do yourself a favor and head over to Pizza Hut’s branch near you!

SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party!!!

{ SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party }

Three weeks well into our wedding, my lovely maid of honor — Jaja, planned and organized this surprise bridal shower via a spa party at Bejewelled Spa with my friends. Weeks before this date, I was bugging my B asking why I don’t feel like Jaja was planning something for me and even thought of her as “heartless” LOL.

Maybe not all girls would admit that if you are a soon-to-be-bride, there is this urge that you want to be pampered by your friends and feel extra special by having a party in your honor and showering you with those tiny, sexy gifts — but I shamelessly admitted it to my B. He did his part on this surprise by keeping his mouth shut, pretending not to know anything and by agreeing to throw me a one-on-one cupcake party at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery and a shopping spree at a lingerie shop! Good thing we didn’t have to do that alone because little did I know — I was in for a lovely treat!

{ With the whole awesome friends who threw this SURPRISE Bridal Spa Party!!! }

I have been to this hidden gem, that is Bejewelled Spa a couple of times before. About last month I treated Jaja here for a full body massage. That was a good decision because since I introduced this to her, she now knew a place where she can execute her surprise bridal shower for me. Win – win!!
