Eat clean in 2015
A TASTE OF LIFE - Heny Sison (The Philippine Star) - March 5, 2015 - 12:00am

Choosing a healthy lifestyle begins with choosing the right food to eat; after all, we are what we eat. To make sure that your healthy eating doesn’t become a boring diet where you are bound to taper off and give up after a few weeks, I would suggest that you start your healthy-living lifestyle with the most versatile meat you can eat and spice and flavor up to whatever suits your taste.?Chicken meat is a good source of protein, it’s easy to cook and its texture adapts to flavors and spices very well. You really don’t need to season it too much or cover it with fattening breading to make it palatable. All you need is good chicken meat, a few herbs and spices, and you’re on your way to healthy eating without the bland taste of diet food.?

Since most of the meats sold in supermarkets come from chicken farms, a better alternative has been made available by Magnolia with its Free Range Chicken.?Free range is relatively new when it comes to raising livestock in the Philippines, although recently it has been gaining steady popularity among organically concerned consumers. Free range simply means that instead of the chickens being raised in a closed enclosure such as a coop or barn, they are given ample space to roam free, therefore giving them all the added advantages of growing in such a natural environment.?

The free-range chicken produced by Magnolia is grown in a true free-range environment where they get plenty of sunshine, fresh air and room to exercise, feed on grass, fruits and vegetables. Studies show that free-range poultry produces healthier, meatier birds with more muscle and less fat. The chickens are allowed to grow to their fullest potential so that their meat remains firm and flavorful.?

For me, quality is the key to the best-tasting food; a chef can only make the best dishes superbly if they are provided with superior-quality ingredients.?Since most of us live fast-paced lives, I would not be surprised if some find it hard to prepare their healthy chicken recipes themselves. Thank goodness Purefoods has come up with a genius alternative for people who want to have a clean and healthy diet without having to change their daily routine in order to cook healthy food themselves: Sexy Chix. Even though it’s ready-to-eat canned chicken meat, it has been blended with the right flavors and spices formulated to suit individual tastes, making sure that there is a Sexy Chix can for everyone.?There are four flavors to choose from: Guiltless Broth, perfect for the hardcore protein eaters who want their food as clean as possible; Hainanese-style, which would be perfect with quinoa or other whole-grain starches; Arrabiata, which would complement pasta dishes; and the all-time classic Adobo just to make sure you don’t miss home cooking too much.?

Making sure to eat healthy will always prove to be a challenge but with Free Range Chicken and Sexy Chix on the market, you can be sure that you are not going to run out of alternatives anytime soon.?
