High5Life: Health Promotion for a Happy Philippines

When we started Pipino in 2010, it was our goal for meat-lovers to appreciate eating vegetables more. Adding more veggies into your diet (and occasionally replacing meat with it) is beneficial for one's health, and also greatly reduces one's carbon footprint.

Here are some of my current favorite (high protein) dishes at Pipino.
Kare-kareng gulay with vegan bagoong rice
Chickpea burger with vegan mayo. We whip our own mayo now! I'm so excited to experiment with new recipes using this.
And recently, I experimented with a batch of Flourless Almond Cookies. They're gluten-free, and will be available at Pipino soon.

Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against carnivores. My advocacy has always been to promote healthy and balanced nutrition, which means adding more vegetables into the diet of meat-centric Manila. Which is why it's an honor to be part of Health Justice's High5Life Campaign for a healthier and happier Philippines. Check out the video below featuring all the High5Life Ambassadors!

We hope to see you all at the Fair and Fun Ride on March 30 at Mercato! :)
And remember:
