Thanks to Instagram I have connected with amazing people. One of them is Joy Felizardo of Gastronomy By Joy. I reached out to her when we were planning to move to Manila and we kept in touch. As a mother and a lifestyle Blogger I am always looking for other mamas out there with mutual interest.
One month ago she invited me to join Jeunesse Anion Fun, Food, and Fitness Event held at Marriott Hotel Manila. After two months of traveling and moving to another country this was a great opportunity for me to have fun and socialize.
The event brought together a good number of mummy and lifestyle bloggers. Jaime Fournier; vlogger, TV host and Radio DJ was the MC of the day. A calorie bursting zumba session was led by the country’s dance queen, fit and ever fabulous mummy Regine Tolentino and her team. There was also a cooking demo by Mummy and Chef; Len Santos Ding of Feed 5000. Len Ding is a mum of 4 and despite her busy schedule she still finds time at the end of the day to prepare healthy food for her family. Her tip for mothers was; Go simple, choose easy to prepare recipes. I still can’t get over her peanut butter muesli and fruit parfait. I can’t wait to do it myself.
Peanut Butter, Muesli and Fruit Parfait
6 tbsps blueberries
2 tbsps peanut butter
4 tbsps plain yogurt
1 sliced banana
1/2 cup Simply Cereal Apple & Cranberry Muesli
1.Whisk together the peanut butter and yogurt.
2.In an individual serving bowl or water goblet, layer half of the bananas. Top with 3 Tbsps of blueberries. Top with half the yogurt mixture and sprinkle with 3 tbsps of muesli. Repeat to make 2 layers.
3.Keep it chilled until serving time.
I love my pasta as much as I love my vegetables so a recipe that brings these two together is definitely a winner. Here is another recipe by Chef Len Ding.
One-Pot Cheesy Pesto and Vegetable Pasta
2 ½ to 3 cups broth or water
120 g Doña Elena Al Dente Spaghetti, uncooked
1 small onion, julienned
1 cup (60 g) broccoli florets
½ cup (30 g) asparagus, cut into 2 inch pieces
4 cloves of garlic, sliced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
pinch of red pepper flakes
½ tsp sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsps Doña Elena Pure or Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup (80 g) green peas
½ cup Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto Sauce
3 Tbsps grated parmesan cheese
1 cup greens (kale, arugula, malunggay leaves)
Optional: 100 g peeled shrimps
1. In a large pot, add 2 ½ cups broth, spaghetti, onions, broccoli, asparagus, garlic, and cherry tomatoes. Season with red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Drizzle with Dona Elena Olive Oil and set over high heat.
2.Once it starts to boil, set the timer to 7 minutes. Toss once in a while using tongs.
3.After 7 minutes, pasta should be almost cooked. If broth is drying out, add ½ cup more. Add peas and Clara Ole Cheesy Pesto. You may add shrimps at this point if you wish.
4.Once it’s done, adjust seasoning if needed. Toss in greens such as malunggay leaves. Add grated parmesan cheese.
Thanks to this event I also came to learn about Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners. 100% Filipino and the first anion sanitary napkin in the retail market that’s scientifically proven to reduce odor and bacteria.
I have used them for two circles now and I am here to tell you ladies red days have never felt better. They are nothing like the ordinary pads. For the first time in a long time I have slept with a pad feeling confident, no mood swings and no bad odour thanks to the anion chip in each pad that helps Improve oxygenation by releasing negative ions. This is beneficial in all tissues by reducing body stress and enhancing circulation.
Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners is definitely a game changer and from now on I am totally hooked. My three favourite Jeunesse are; Jeunesse Anion Ultra Day Pad, Jeunesse Anion All Night Pad and Jeunesse Anion Panty Liner.
Annie Lennox once said when women get together as a group it’s immensely powerful. I couldn’t agree more. Thank you Jeunesse for helping us women live positively better.
