The LOVE-nder cleanse

As you know by now, we are back to our humble abode after a few weeks of traipsing in Mindanao. During our vacation, we ate some junk foods here and there as well as sodas. Grabe, I made a vow not to eat them but I am only human. LOL :) I need to detox!!! Now naaa.

Without any further ado, I am attending this workshop this coming weekend. Actually, I have some other workshops lined up to attend this month of September but this is the first one so far. I will post the rest of the events that I will join so if you are interested, you can try them too. Sounds good?!? :)

Anyways, I’ve wanted to try the RAW diet pero ang hirap, hahaha! Imagine, NOT-COOKING-YOUR-FOOD to get the nutrients first hand. I know it’s very matipid but thats a different story.  This weekend, is like the starter course of getting into the RAW diet. Now, I am not only attending to cleanse out from the junk that we’ve digested in the past weeks, months,etc but also for my hubby. He’s got Hepa B and it is important for us to make sure that his liver is protected amidst that disease. Buti nalang, he is slowly shifting to the vegetarian diet  way way back even before he got that disease (blame it on the turo-turo food).

Here is the poster from Dahon Kusina. I think they are the pioneer in introducing this workshop and they are very well-known in the RAW community here in the Philippines.

THE LOVE-NDER CLEANSE POSTER

So this workshop aims to help us in cleansing and detoxing. We’ve tried DIY detox before but we are giving a formal method of leaning it a try :), though we just have to spend a few pesos for that.

Let me share some excerpts from their site about this upcoming workshop.

Cleansing and detox is a crucial step in clearing our body of both physical and emotional toxins that have accumulated over the years.

In this workshop, learn some protocols that you can choose from (from mild to heavy), learn all about the importance and functions of the liver in the detoxification process – all while learning some easy-to-prepare recipes that aim to support your cleanse.

THE LOVE-NDER CLEANSE
SEPTEMBER 22, 2012, 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
To register, you may email leaf.kitchen@yahoo.com or send us a PM.
They have a limit of 12 participants only, so be sure to book in advance.

Resto Reviews

Allow me to introduce the other part of my blog which I call the RR segment or Resto Review/s. In the future, you will definitely see more reviews coming (if our budget permits) while we keep a low profile. We want to really see what each resto has to offer in their usual state and not because a writer/blogger is there to write about them. Since we are vegetarians, we will only feature vegetarian, vegan and veg*n friendly places. Maybe some health stores as well. No place for cruelty here, entiendes?!?

Each review is based only on our personal experience, how the food tasted, the place and some other stuff. Also, we pay for our own food. How I wish it will be free BUT we are veggie undercover agents so no act of enticement or bribery of free veggie food will alter us. hahaha :)

Fast forward now. How we review? I made up a factor system below to help out other veg out there or my readers (if any :0 ) to decide whether to go there or not. I based them on the our five senses. A good way to make those senses active. Hope this can help.

Sight – how we perceive the place. The physical attribute of the resto and then some.  Proper lighting? Beautiful landscapes? Squeaky Clean? Hygienic? Eccentric tables and chairs? I will also add on this part at least the “how to get to the resto” kind of stuff since we don’t have a car.

Smell – the mood and character of the place. Relaxing? feels like you’re on a different place? Hippie type? Did it smell of spices?

Taste – this is where our taste buds is tested. we will always keep an open mind and empty stomach :) in each place.

Touch – not the touch that you are thinking. I decided to tweak this factor since touch is somewhat synonymous feelings. This is for the relationship of the staffs to their customers. Are they friendly? Masungit or ill-tempered? Accommodating? Always with a smile?

Hear – this is for you to my beloved readers. I want to hear what you have to say. Have you been to this place? I will try to insert some sites from other people who’ve been to this place.

Rating – scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the highest.

I hope that our review system will work to help out other veggie loving peeps out there. Packed with a camera, notebook and an empty stomach, we are ready to rumble.

hello

This is our veggie blog.  It’s plant-based so it is either raw, vegan, lacto-vegetarian (i don’t eat eggs) or the other varieties of vegetarianism.

I’ve tried to create blogs from the past but I guess this is what I am at least knowledgeable enough to keep up. I will create budget-friendly recipes, review products that we use or even review some of our favorite restaurants around the metro or if lucky, even overseas.

I will try to categorize my recipes based on the varieties that I am using and make it economical, sustainable and non-karmic. To inspire me, I created a slogan for this blog:

If it is sustainable then it is economical. If it is economical then it is good for the environment. If it is good for the environment then it is good for our planet. If it is good for our planet then it is good for our body. If we have a good and healthy body, we can use this in service to the Supreme.

L and M.

P.S

GULAY is vegetable in our native language.
