Sugarleaf Makati Launch!










Super excited ko nung 11.11.11, for one thing, ang daaaaming ganap! Started my day with a lunch in the all-new Sugarleaf health shop in Makati (MEDICard Lifestyle Center corner Paseo de Roxas and Gil Puyat Streets). Went there with fellow blogger Kaye Awatin--since I know vegetarian din si gurl and she'll totally love the place also!




Sugarleafers Rman Lorenzo, Gina Salting Yambot, Jeren Cabral Lorenzo, and Angelo Narciso Sonco




“At Sugarleaf, as our restaurant and store offerings are as organic and natural as possible, food is naturally weight-reducing, detoxifying, anti-oxidising (make you look and feel young) and energy boosting.  We ensure that food choices taste great so it appeals to all people dispelling the misconception that healthy organic food is bland, tasteless and boring.”





Co-owner, marketing and business development head Angelo Narciso Songco shares “Though health is a major factor when it comes to food choices, we realise that vanity is a more active influence.  People always focus on their appearance before anything else.”





Checkout the different "health stuff" in the store:


Interesting:



Another products that caught my fantasy: Vegan Ice Cream! :D





















Kaye bought packs of these nachos!


















They also have organic beauty stuff like soaps...




...And massage oil (hay, parang gusto ko bigla magpamasahe, hehehe :P)


Sugarleaf pertains to stevia, a plant whose leaves possess an intense sweetening capability.  Though somewhat controversial in its earlier years, stevia is totally safe and is highly regarded because it has anti-oxidant properties, has zero calories, and doesn’t affect blood sugar levels.
Sugarleaf imbibes sweetness, happy thoughts and feelings linked with healthy living and organic lifestyle.


I was a bit late and missed the ribbon-cutting, which they timed ng 11am! ;) 
But naabutan ko the blessing of the place:


Pretty Ms. Angel Jacob:






The most interesting ceiling. :D Gusto ko nito sa room ko, hehehe.



Then.... Eating time! :D (YEY! Hahaha...Favorite part ko forever hehe)
















YUMMY! Mango shakes:


I love the mango dressing..

Syempre, hindi namin pinalagpas ni Kaye ang photobooth! ;) Hehe!

Had a great time with Kaye! She's super easy to talk with kaya chill lang kami the whole time! :) It's cool also to have someone na karelate lang when it comes to our vegetarianism. :) More bonding times soon Kaye! Bitin!



Healthy meals, snacks and beverages will also be available for both dine in and take away fully utilising the fresh produce available.  Both restaurants have a cozy dining area of up to 30 persons is available for intimate events such as reunions, etc.

Workshops on organic farming, healthy cooking and other wellness workshops will be offered in the coming months.


What an exciting health hub! A must-visit for all the health-conscious and health-buffs! ;)
