Oi, Oishi!

Thank you Oishi

For somebody who’s vegetarian and trying to burn the unwanted bulges, snacks and any kind of junk food are prohibited but one fine day, an Oishi truck parked in front of my garage. I thought it was another newsletter but much to my surprise, it was a box load and a huge paper bag of goodies from Liwayway Corporation.

24 bottles of Smart C+, two of each Oishi products such as Marty’s, Bread pans, Baconette strips, Ridges; a huge family pack of Pillow and two boxes of new products – Wafu, a long rolled wafer in cheese and leche flan flavor. You couldn’t imagine the delight as I brought the items inside the house, I felt as if I placed a podium finish receiving a bunch load of goodies!

While the brother owned the Baconette Strips and Ridges potato chips, I’ve already marked all the Marty’s Crackin’ Vegetarian Chicharon (Plain Salted and Salt & Vinegar variants.) and Bread pan for my consumption. Albeit Wafu turned out to be the favorite – you couldn’t imagine how 2o rolled wafers (specifically the leche flan flavor) were consumed in less than 3 days, I even had to safe keep at least one for me and one for my boyfriend to taste!

The Bread pan snacks has been reserved and added on my salad cravings (the aha! moment for savory croutons substitute), the family packed  ziplocked chocolate-filled enriched with Vitamin-A Pillows snack has been frugally eaten one at a time as my rewarding dessert or for a taste to satisfy my sugar cravings.

Pair any of those flavorful Smart C+ with any of the Marty’s snack, you’re already set for a great merienda treat!

Thank you Oishi for such pleasant surprise! Maybe one day, someday again… next time?

 

 

 

I’m Vegetarian. What’s your problem?

I don’t know with other vegetarians out there but I get annoyed and irritated at times when people wonder how I’ve turned vegetarian, why I turned vegetarian or How come I don’t look like I’m vegetarian (What do vegetarians looks like anyway?). It makes me want to break their bones and make them realize that being vegetarian doesn’t mean you’ll be stick thin or make you lose weight drastically. The sole reason I opted to exclude certain meats in my diet is because of the hormonal imbalance that I have to fix in my system since I ballooned when I was induced with steroids 2 years ago. When I got back to yoga, thanks to the influence of Divine Wellness, I felt better.

I no longer drink hormonal imbalance medicines anymore such as birth control pills to keep my ovulation up-to-date, I wake up lighter and definitely have a lot of changes in my body system including bowel movement. I may have lost few weight with the help of the lifestyle change but it certainly isn’t purely because of the choice I’ve made in my food restriction but it was also because of the mileage I have to endure. People forget that being a vegetarian means you’ll have more carbohydrates in your diet even if it’s filled with fiber and nutrients.

I declared myself as flexitarian back in 2008 hence the name of my blog The Flexitarian Runaholic Diaries. Late last year slowly with the help of Divine Wellness, I gradually became  Pollotarian until I have finally made amendment to let go of poultry into a Pescetarian (Pesco-lacto-ovo Vegetarian) but then again, only a percentage of people knows what each means.

What’s the easiest way to describe your choice of menu? simply say you’re vegetarian, they’ll instantly understand from the first few letters of the word: VEGET (for Vegetables) regardless on what type of vegetarian you are but when you’re together with a purist, don’t mistake on saying you’re vegetarian without being specific  but then again, purists or vegans would call themselves as purists or vegan rather than vegetarian.

If you say “I’m Semi-Vegetarian”, there are a lot of questions asked after. Ah, I’d rather stick to the easiest way to describe my food preference; what about you?

For everyone’s knowledge, there are different types of vegatarians:

  • The Purist exculdes all types of animals, and dairy
  • Raw Vegan  incudes only fresh fruits, uncooked fruits, nuts, seeds and vegetables
  • Macrobiotic Vegetarianism consists mostly beans, seeds and whole grain
  • Fruitarianism includes only fruits, nuts and seeds and other foods that doesn’t harm another plant.
  • Buddhist Vegetarianism  excludes all animal products as well as vegetables in the allium family (which have the characteristic aroma of onion and garlic): onion, garlic, scallions, leeks, or shallots.
  • Pesco Vegetarian   includes fish
  • Ovo Vegetarianism includes eggs but not dairy products
  • Lacto Vegetrianism includes dairy products but not eggs
  • Ovo-Lacto Vegetarianism includes both eggs and dairy/animal products/products

Aside from these, there are other types of vegetarianism which evolved

  • Flexitarians is what they infamously known as “a vegetarian who occasionally eats meat”
  • Pollotarians eat chicken or other poultry, but not red meat.
  • Pescetarians eat fish or other seafood, but not red meat or poultry.

Intiendes?! I no longer want to explain myself nor ever find the need to explain myself about this ever again. I don’t question your preference, don’t question mines. It is the choice I made, not yours. Don’t look at me from head to toe for not being Olive oil (Popeye) or for being a Chunky Vegetarian. Again, let me reiterate: Vegetables are Carbohydrates, being a vegetarian won’t make you as thin as paper – It’s not a diet, it’s a lifestyle change. Please, stop associating being a Vegetarian as deprivation.

Instead, why don’t you try being vegan or vegetarian yourself? Guaranteed, your body will thank you for it.

Shabu Yaki : Enjoy your Vegetables

Between the two of us, I’m the only pesco-lacto-ovo vegetarian albeit he’s trying not to have meat every now and then especially when we’re eating out, I appreciate the effort and the willingness of him sharing my plate and not indulging on a carnivorous treat.

Tonight although he was turning out to be a little monster who was giving me an attitude already for not having to decide on what to eat for dinner, we had to transfer from one restaurant to another, in order for me to win not to go for pasta, chicken and fried foods – the treat was on me.

 

But look who enjoyed the food most?

I can live with other uncomfortable things such as riding the bus, walking the distance or a little bit of sun, but never will I compromise on food.

 

Our first Shabu Shabu dinner

For a gastronomic healthy dinner of Php 499 at Shabu Yaki located at Aguirre Ave. Bf Homes Paraque. Chicken Broth and Seafood Shabu Shabu, we were already set for a healthy meal. The mood changed soon as he took a sip of the soup, a taste of the clams and the shrimps.

Had Calamansi Juice to cleanse our palate for Php 50.

 

ShabuYaki

Surely enjoyed our fresh vegetables! The attendants were friendly enough to take our orders, and requests. They accept credit card payments, too!

Because I was not much of a eater, we even managed to take home few greens, dimsum and warm broth home for my boys. Are we going to go back and visit? Yes, why not. I’m all for the vegetarian meal – No rice, too!

The shabu shabu choices can feed 3-4 people.
