Nutrilite: The Latest Product From Amway

I've known Amway for many years. A couple of friends of mine are also connected to Amway. Although multilevel marketing gets a negative image due to some pyramidal schemes, Amway as well as other legitimate multi-level companies are still around.

I was able to attend the launch of their new product, Nutrilite. It was like attending one of their product briefings that they usually do for recruiting. Dr. Micheline Vergara, one of their motivational speakers, oriented us with the product.

Dr. Vargas with Ms. Leny Olmedi, Country Manager for Amway Phils.
Nutrilite is rich in protein which is very critical nutrient for our well being. Here's some facts about protein f you can't recall its benefits in our health. Protein repairs our tissues which is why athletes needs lots of protein.
In this digital age, we don't get the right nutrients for our bodies since we are used at fast foods and instant or processed foods. Nutrilite can help give those nutrients especially protein in our system. Nutrilite is plant-based and it reduces cholesterol we get from processed foods. The ingredients are non-genetically modified so we are assured from food chemicals.
The target consumers are the adults but it is not for those who have gout or high in uric acid. So it is still best to consult your physician before your physician. Nutrilite has a neutral taste so it can be used in our dishes. I tried it during the launch in Amway\s chocolate drink and the flavor is not affected.

Nutrilite is now available at the Amway centers. If you are interested to join the Amway business, you may contact any Amway agent or go to their nearest Amway center. Follow W.H.A.T. Food blogs using your Google or Twitter accounts for more foodie adventures.

Goldilocks Ube Halaya

There are numerous tastes that every Filipino can connect to their youth, though nothing does the trick quite like sweets:  polvoron crumbling in your mouth, the soft and buttery texture of a freshly baked mamon, the cheesy goodness of an ensaymada, and of course, the richness of ube halaya – the perfect combination of soft, sweet and chewy.

Goldilocks, the country’s number one bakeshop, brings a whole new level of delight through its ube halaya dessert. The Goldilocks Ube Halaya comes at a sizeable 300 grams, which means more servings for everyone to enjoy. Given the varied array of sweets and confectionary available today, it’s good to go back to basics sometimes, and enjoy a uniquely Filipino treat. 

Stop into your local Goldilocks today, take home some Ube Halaya.

Flavors of Araneta

Photos by Jeremy Decamora
Lifestyles evolved in this digital world we are living. Not to mention how the people work. Everything is now 24/7. Since there are people working on shifts even at night, not all food establishments are available except for convenience stores and selected fast food chains but it is not enough to accommodate the growing work force in hospitals and the expanding call center industry.
Flavors of Araneta

This is why Araneta Center launched the Flavors. Located along the Gateway Park area where it usually have the yearly Christmas tree lighting, Flavors aims to accommodate those gastronomic needs during the late night hours of work.

This way, it will help customer service representatives or CSRs during their breaks or just simply chill out. The launch last May 31 was hosted by Bb. Pilipinas title holders with performances from Urbandub and more. Choices of food varies like street foods isaw and chicken skin, and heavier snacks like shwarma, pizzas, buffalo wings and more.

Live performances
With performances to live up the vibes. Flavors opens every Fridays to Sundays from 5PM to 3AM. For more foodie adventures follow the W.H.A.T. food blog or visit and like the L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
