My latest advocacy is to make healthy food look cool. In Manila, we don't appreciate healthy restaurants so much because of the perceived bland or mild taste of vegetarian/healthy dishes. There was only one vegetarian hole-in-the-wall restaurant in UP that was full of flavor because the kitchen was run by a Kapampangan but, sadly, it closed down.
Thankfully, we did find another healthy alternative. But before I share about it, let me introduce you first to kefir...
The Kefir Culture"There are two types of kefir: water kefir - small transparent grains that ferment sweetened water; and milk kefir - white or cream coloured grains that look rather like cauliflower florets that ferment milk."
"Kefir is a living culture, a complex symbiosis of more than 30 microflora that form grains or cauliflower-like structures (sometimes called plants) in the milk. As the culture ferments the milk these structures grow, creating new grains in the process. Real kefir from live culture is an endlessly self-propagating process."

The Awesome Philippines campaign aims to promote the Philippines to the youth travelers, defined as young people around the age of 15-25 years old, around the world. The country is already attracting tourists who are 25 years old and above, which is why the campaign aims to address the need to cater to a younger generation of travelers. This includes Fil-Ams and Asian travelers who would like to discover the natural wonders of our country, our heritage, our food and, of course, the different party places. :)
