Live a Plant-based lifestyle with The First-Ever Maxicare Veggie Fest 2019

In its mission to improve others’ quality of life, Maxicare encourages members and non-members alike to incorporate a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and starches, good fats, and lean proteins into their diet so they can live longer and feel stronger by inspiring others to fight disease and eat healthily.

The veggie fest was packed with plant-based advocates that offered handpicked products for health-conscious consumers. Held at the Legaspi Active Park in Makati City.

It's my passion also to live a healthy lifestyle although exercise lacks in me, yet I love eating fruits and vegetables. In this event, I found some new dishes made from plant-based and the taste was so good and you don't even notice it came from a vegetable. I bought my lunch with a cup of brown rice and for my viand 3 slices of embutido made with plant-based ingredients, and for my side dish chop cucumber and scramble egg with tomatoes. For my drink, I bought 500 ml of fresh coconut juice. Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of my food because of my hunger and hot weather condition. I indulge myself eating a healthy meal that day and enjoy the fest by looking around the booths and taste some few samples they offer. Hopefully, this is not the last that Maxicare hosted this kind event and looking forward to more healthy living advocacies.

The activities included a film showing on plant-based lifestyle and a talk on “Holistic Healing for Wholesome Living” presented by Yoga instructor Donna Francisco, “Guilt Free and Gluten Free Dessert” by Jertie Abergas of Jerties Kitchen, “Skin Food –Understanding the Right Food for Beautiful Skin by Dr. Kathy Amurao-Herrera, “Aging Gracefully” by May Manahan  Lagdameo and Dr. Willie Lagdameo of Health & Wellness Coaches Philippines, Inc., “Lifestyle Medicine” by Dr. Johann Manez, and a “Local Native Plant-Based Eating with Mesa ni Misis” by Juana Manahan- Yupangco.
