The average age of the current population are either into super-active or semi-active workout ranging from weekly, bi-weekly or daily routines with single aim in sight… to stay physically fit and healthy in whatever way they can to stay sharp and fierce as they want. While most of them are doing it or into it to shave excess fats and lower their cholesterol level others do it to maintain agility even past the age of 70’s.

After a thorough and heart pounding activities most of us turn to what we call the post-workout-meal to support the loss energy and inner strength of our muscles which differentiate everyone from each in terms of food types, intake and volume.

Re-hydration is another key factor if you are into training or workout s the amount of sweat you’ve produced defines the amount of energy loss or used during the deal. How do you re-hydrate, what kind of liquid you need? Does a low-calorie packed drinks can serve your needed liquid, perhaps some smoothies will seal enough your needs immediately after. See, it doesn’t define at all to drink this drink that low-cal bottles but it depends on your genetic framework. While some consume a 500 ml bottle of hydrated salt before start training or workout, some do it afterwards but with the same aim in view which is to stay or keep hydrated.

Will several fruits crushed into smoothies can served the post-workout need as a meal? How about couple of wheat breads with a glass of milk or apple juice? Others eat their pre-freeze avocado smoothies combined with aqua mineral to stay full but oil-free after workout. So what are the best combination for a post-workout-meal? Yogurt, boiled eggs waiting inside your fridge?

Here is my two-cent word for this, better consult the expert advice of a registered Nutritionist and Dietitian  to determine your proper choice of foods to take after every intense workout. The right amount and timing are some of the greatest factors every active individual should learn. Consult those who are strict with their food intake and be aware of signals or key points they’ll share as those might not be fittingly the same for your own needs due to genetics difference and body types. And this might be the best time to see your personal physician in order for you to determine your current health alert status prior to indulging to any active cross training suitable for your age.

How about you, what is your preferred post-workout-meal? Share it and let’ the world known the positive effects it have for the next generation to come.

How Do Sauces are Affecting Your Mood? Foods taste “yuck” without it!

We’ve been hitting fancy restaurants, fast food chains, buffet and ala carte and even pasta ristorante in almost our entire life and may i ask you, what do you think these all have in common? Yes, you got it and they all tastes good which is the reason you keep on coming back and continue reliving the great tasting food a resto has been offering. But what is behind the taste? Sometimes were thinking what the hell they call it and it’s so addicting that gave us the fulfillment of what satisfaction means to us. It must be the preparation I think? Or the secret process those Chefs have in their imaginative talent and high standards of palatable contentment. Perhaps the sauce they’ve used that simply put and add extra ordinary authentic taste to any type of food. Sauce can be derived from Soya, Fish, Meat and Vegetables and even Fruits of rare kind if done thru a great process produced a multitude of variety once it penetrates the food served. What about the condiments, those are used to suit one’s preference for a certain type food on the table.

As advertised and promoted, food taste enhancers are plenty and it started way back the ancient time during which it is even used to pay or trade for a thing or supplies every man’s need for his and family consumption. In today’s modern times scientific process of extraction of its juices, drying process to preserved and maintain its true taste and provide the necessary or expected tasting effects it’ could create in bringing out the best and limiting the natural odor a meat of any type and experience the aromatic and tender loving food taste of either sweet, bitter, sour and a mix of it cultivating your inner senses and put you into a reset mode and a fresh start of your brain cells accordingly. Does eating the food you’ve been craving for put you into a new dimension of how you think? Will it ignite the creativity in one’s self,  perhaps contentment it is. Sauce makers have these in mind and kept on perfecting their sauce produce trying to find the best ever that could reset the minds of the pressured, stressed and busy people of the corporate world and make them always at their brightest and roundest manner all the time.

In our country alone there are a thousand sauce producers and repacking company providing our needs and the world has a lot to offer that makes them unique and different from others. Raw tuna is tasteless without the refined wasabi+lemon+Sauce isn’t it? Pasta would taste like cooked grains without the tomato sauces+parmesan+a pinch of pepper. Even our favorite potato chips are enhanced with those variety of dips we crave for and sauces of sour, cheesy, process onion and others makes it a good snack while watching your favorite tv show. Jalapenos and chilli sauces are made to bring out the fiercest and war ready in us, better have these before seeing your boss for that company presentation you got, but if you’re not that choosy try having a packet of two of food chain ketchup to reset your mood.

A drop or two amplifies your mood, control your emotions as tiny as a drop of any sauce.-Paquito

More to come Mayet + Max’s Birthday Song to Remember

They said that absence makes your heart grow fonder, yes it is! After more than a decade of “ex-communicado” our senior high batch once more gathered for the celebration of our dear classmate forty-third birth anniversary in the presence of the class advisers and close friends and her daughter who is also celebrating her birthday in the month of August. Catch-up stories and recollections were shared by the small group of 10 who are now all married of their humble achievements and life changing challenges. A mature audience joyfully listened to everyone’s storied past and experiences.

A sumptuous lunch were hosted for none other than the celebrator herself Ms. Marietta Supnet-Villajin a registered nurse and present during the event were Ms Winnie Cabral, class adviser; Mr. Louie Victorino, Mr John Mariano, SPO2 Fernando E. Santiago, Ms Jennifer Molina now a successful high school teacher, Ms Odessa Cave, Ms. Marife Banaga, Ms Janet Foster and the youngest attendee the cute little girl named Venice.

Though the event was quite short and “bitin”, food were served hot and professionally managed thoroughly by the Max’s Megamall branch dining assistant’s seamless leadership of Mr. Rey Tolentino, waiters Cedrick, Grace, Mary, lanie, Jamie, Hector, Chris, Jonnel, Geronna and Marc whose maximum talent in singing were shared in expressing their greetings thru a unique version of a happy birthday song.

That “bitin” factor will surely go down the drain as the group pledged to meet up occasionally at any Max’s Restaurant not just to enjoy its authentic original “sarap to the bones fried chicken but to keep updated with everybody in am more intimate brotherly bonding for the next 43 years.

Age is just a number, presence is to be remember without any ember. – Paquito
