Pinakbet One of My Favorite Filipino Dishes

I’m so proud to show you what my mom cooked for me today. It is one of the best Filipino Veggie Dishes which is called Pinakbet.

2016-02-11 08.50.09

This is a viand made from sautéed squash, eggplant, string beans and okra. Shrimp paste, fish sauce or salt then pepper is then added for flavor.

Here’s a simple recipe:
1/4 kilo of lean pork cut into small bits.
1 eggplant or 4 small ones, sliced
1/4 kilo squash, chopped into bite sized cubes
3 pieces tomatoes (the more ripe the better)
1 red onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, crushed
6 to 8 pieces okra
1 bunch string beans, cut into bite sized pieces
3 tbsp shrimp paste
1 cup water
3 tbsp cooking oil (we use canola it’s good for you)
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
Heat the pan and spread the cooking oil.
When oil is hot enough, sauté the garlic, onion, and tomato.
Lower the temperature then cover the pan for about a minute. This should soften the ripe tomatoes.
Crush the tomatoes with a fork to bring out their natural flavor.
Add the pork and cook until color turns light brown.
Put-in the shrimp paste and cook for 2 minutes.
Add water and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes or until pork is tender.
Put-in the squash and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until it becomes soft.
Add the remaining vegetables and mix with the other ingredients.Simmer for 5 minutes or until all the vegetables are cooked. (Do not overcook the vegetables)
Serve hot with rice. Share!!!

If you wouldn’t want to add pork it’s okay. This saves about 30 minutes of preparation time. This is also best eaten with fried fish. Today I enjoyed it with a small bowl of Dulong which is a kind of small fish. Sometimes I see these with Nasi Lemak.

Free Range Eggs and Allergies

Recently I’ve noticed that I get allergies whenever I would eat regular eggs. What regular eggs? The white ones that can be bought from groceries.

The thing is, it doesn’t happen when I eat the brown ones or the free-range eggs. They can easily be spotted because they appear to be brown and some would have spots.

img_20160127_205603.jpg

How they are different is the regular eggs come from farms where the chickens would be given shots, feeds and mostly not permitted outdoors, while their free-range counterparts would be raised without the use of antibiotics, hormones and would mostly eat grass and small insects outdoors.

So earlier my brother showed me where to buy hardboiled free-range eggs. So yes I am very happy because this is a great after gym snack since I didn’t have time to prepare them myself. ^-^

These native chickens would then lay brown eggs that are more nutritious because their moms have more exposure to sunlight which the chicken’s body convert to vitamin D. The best part is since they are hormone and antibiotic free, they tend to be better for people like me!

INNOVATIVE PRODUCTS TO DRIVE EXPANSION IN LOCAL SHORES

Global air conditioning, appliance giant  enters Philippine market. Amidst the phenomenal growth in the Philippines’ retail sector, a brand of a global leader in air conditioning systems and appliances is set to bring to the country its line of innovative products. Tosot, a premium brand of Gree, the biggest manufacturer of air conditioners in the world, was officially launched this October.

Tosot PR

Tosot Philippines also held a grand launch, where dignitaries and executives of Gree came in full force to support the brand expansion in Southeast Asia. Tosot Philippines General Manager Tom Balete said the brand intends to compete in the segment of the market which demand innovative and premium solutions for air conditioners, something Tosot successfully did in three continents worldwide. The move, Balete said, is in response to growing consumer sentiment that prefers quality air conditioner brands, instead of the usual cheap but low quality products that flood appliance centers all over the land. “We have been observing the market for years now. We noticed that in the past couple of years, many families and businesses have started to upgrade their air conditioning systems to something that goes beyond cooling their rooms. They want efficiency and quiet that cheaper products don’t have.” He explained that the penchant of consumers to upgrade their appliances could be a direct result of the growth in the country’s retail sector, marked by the increase in the number of middle class families, which allowed premium brands worldwide to enter the Philippines. In fact, Balete said that in the Southeast Asian region, where the Philippines is a key member, analysts are predicting that the middle class is expected to triple from 525 million in 2009 to 1.74 billion in 2020.

“Tosot’s entry to the Philippines couldn’t come at a better time. We want to be that alternative premium brand of air conditioners and we will compete in terms of providing really technologically advanced products that will set the bar for air conditioners, especially in terms of energy consumption and area acoustics,” he said. Tosot Philippines will also place priority on products that are ecologically friendly. “Our work primarily focuses on making lives more comfortable at no expense to nature. For every product we create, we think about how it will impact the environment.” Tosot prides itself of using R-32 & R-410A in its air-conditioning units. These special refrigerants do not contribute to ozone depletion, and allow for lower power consumption and less impact on global warming. Tosot also uses the inverter air-conditioning system that consumes less electricity compared to conventional air-conditioning units. This means less energy, reduced production costs, and an environment-friendly business. As a premium brand, Tosot’s product lines are made using the best technology available today.

The company strives to create a sophisticated and comfortable lifestyle where its clients are. “The people behind Tosot have worked hard-in-hand over a decade to bring the most innovative appliances possible in order to foster a lifestyle that not only sees to you and your family’s comfort and convenience but also the health and well-being of the environment.

Apart from the Philippines, Tosot is distributed globally in Italy, Canada, Hongkong, Iraq, Russia, Ukraine, and China. Partners in comfort and well-being Tosot has also partnered with various institutions to effectively improve the quality of life that includes comfort and well-being, and to bring not only comfort but a great deal of satisfaction. This includes Don Bosco Technical Institute where Tosot Philippines gets student-trainees for a five-month training program. In turn, Tosot Philippines provides scholarships to these trainees as part of their corporate social responsibility. Tosot Philippines also works with TUV Rheiland Philippines in ensuring that all Tosot products comply with the Philippine National Standard. Apart from its showroom, Tosot Philippines has also partnered with and Lazada.com.ph in promoting and selling of Tosot products online.

PhilCare upholds importance of preventive health, launches Unlimited Medical & Dental Consultation cards

Manila, Philippines/ 24 November 2015 – Filipinos tend to think only about their health when they are sick and more often than not, have a strong tendency to self-medicate during times of illness. These and other surprising health truths were uncovered in 2014 when PhilCare commissioned the PhilCare Wellness Index where more than 1,200 Filipinos nationwide were asked about their views on health and their well-being.

The first of its kind in the Philippines, the study provided PhilCare with an in-depth look on how Filipinos approach health and wellness. In spite the fact that 59% of Filipinos have access to doctors, majority – or 74 percent—still choose to self medicate than consult a doctor. What makes this alarming is that Filipinos view on health is often on the “curative” and not preventive. Meaning, they will only consult or see a doctor when they are already sick. For others, it’s the high cost of consultation that prevents them from seeing a doctor upon on-set of illness. PhilCare is addressing this situation with the introduction of its Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards which allows its holder to avail of consultation services for 12 months from its nationwide network of PhilCare-designated affiliated doctors.

Philcare

“PhilCare believes that prevention is always better than cure. Other than leading a healthy lifestyle, Filipinos should also be able to have immediate access to their doctors during onset of any illness or even just to check the progress of their health. Our new Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation cards will address this need,” shares Noemi G. Azura, president & CEO of PhilCare.

Understanding that each age range has specific health concerns, PhilCare developed three variants of the Unlimited Medical and Dental Consultation Cards, according to the age of its user. Medical and Dental Consultation for Kids – for kids aged 1 to 17 years old. Philcare offers unlimited medical consultations to more than 5,500 PhilCare-affiliated pediatrician and one year unlimited consultation with Dental Network dentists. Medical and Dental Consultation Cards for Adults – for adults aged 18 to 64 years old. Card offers unlimited medical consultations to more than 9,600 PhilCare-affiliated family medicine specialists, internal medicine specialists, cardiologists, endocrinologists, nephrologists, pulmonologists and gastroenterologists nationwide. One year access to Dental Network dentists.Medical and Dental Consultation Cards for 65+ – Ideal for adults aged 65 and above.

Patty P. Henson, SVP and Chief Marketing Officer for PhilCare shares, “The unlimited consult cards makes consultations easy, affordable and available for everyone – especially for senior citizens. No long paper work to register, activation of the card is done by text and can be used three days immediately after activation. We always said that PhilCare Makes Health Happen – this is a testament to that commitment.” PhilCare has also made it easy for everyone to purchase the unlimited consultation cards, courtesy of its efficient online shopping system.
