To highlight the importance of good health and wellbeing, Mango Tree restaurant recently conducted a talk about healthy mindful eating in cooperation with the expertise of personal growth and integrative health consultant, Ms. Lia Sevilla-Bernardo.
The insightful workshop, which was attended by media, digital influencers and food industry personalities, tackled how to incorporate local super foods into one’s diet so that eating healthy does not have to be challenging and expensive. It also covered the advantages of using certain vegetables, fruits and herbs for one’s healing and total wellness; how to shop for healthy food; and prepare body-loving dishes at home.
Ms. Bernardo likewise explained how unhealthy food currently makes up for 50-70% of the average person’s diet and that with proper discipline and intake, one would never have to go on fad diets trends again.
The event was supplemented with an explanation of the healing effects and medicinal benefits of select herbs and popular recipe ingredients, and a well thought of menu by Mango Tree. The said menu consisted of colorful and appetizing dishes such as Som Tum Thai, spicy fresh green papaya salad with cherry tomatoes, snake beans, peanuts and dried shrimps; the Yum Ma Khua Phao Song Goong, grilled eggplant salad with shrimp; Phad Pak Bung Fai Daeng or stir-fried morning glory with garlic, fresh chilies and oy bean sauce; and the Kai Jiew Hom or Thai omelette, among others.
