I’ll be teaching a green juice and smoothie workshop at Yoga Camp, a wellness weekend being held at Cintai Corito’s Garden in Balete, Batangas on May 25 to 26. You’ll discover how fruit and vegetables in liquid form can alkalize, detoxify, and heal the body. We’ll tackle superfoods too, thanks to friends at Superfood Grocer. Hope to see you there!

I’m super excited for this!! Come and fill up the last remaining seats for this benefit dinner, demo and lecture. Denise Celdran and I will talk about the superpowers of herbs and spices, treating cancer treatment side effects with food, how to make the food you eat more cancer fighting. Mushroom man Marco Lobregat will share how mushrooms can be super beneficial for your health and for cancer treatment. By the way, this is informative for anyone interested in health and good food.
Other topics for tomorrow’s Anti-Cancer Cooking Workshop:
- How to cook for a cancer patient (dealing with taste changes throughout treatment)
- How to make immuni-tea
- How and what to juice
Plus you get to eat the dishes (5 types) and take home the recipes!

Well hello there. I’d like you to meet a super awesome lady named Christine Lasala.
Christine is a vegetarian mom on a mission: to feed her kids fresh, nutrient dense, and as-minimally-processed-as-possible plant-based food (with the occasional dessert here and there). She’s been to quite a number of cooking classes to help her along the way.
Meet Pancho. He got his first taste of green juice two weeks ago purely by happenstance: he passed by my house just as I was about to do my round of juicing for the day and I saw the opportunity to show him how it’s done. He was game enough to try it and whaddaya know, he ain’t grimacing from the greens.
What’s in the juice? Taiwan pechay, pechay wombok, cucumber, apple, lime.
To the mamas out there, I realize that getting kids to eat their vegetables can be a daunting task. While we can be role models of eating, often times kids would rather reach for the spaghetti than for spinach. Try something different for a change: get them in the kitchen with you. Have them help you out. Pancho here was fascinated with the juicer — it was fun to push fruit and greens down the chute and watch the pulp and juice come out. And while he was doing it, I explained how the pechay had chlorophyll for our blood (and to fight cancer), cucumber kept us hydrated, and apple and lime were good for the sniffles.
Guess what, he downed 2 glasses!
Makati, get over to the dark leafy green side through this juice and smoothie workshop on February the 19th
You clamored, I heard. I’m bringing the green juice and smoothie bandwagon Makati-side on the 3rd Sunday in February – check it out! Why juice, why smoothie? What’s in it for you?
Well, one of the easiest ways to eat more veggies without really thinking about it is to drink them. In this workshop, learn how juices and smoothies made from fresh fruit and vegetables can help you feel and look amazing!
Discover how to concoct cocktails to increase energy, cleanse the liver, boost immunity, pump up the iron reserves in the body, and fight the onset of flu and colds. You’ll also learn how to make yummy green smoothies (!!) that are good for you and are seriously addicting.
Your kidney, liver, colon, immune system, and blood will thank you. I said it before, I’ll say it again - the solution to life’s problems, tears, sicknesses, and hangovers is green juice and smoothies.
Come to the workshop and find out more. I promise, it’ll be worth your while. 19th of February, a Sunday afternoon – put down that deadly ensaymada and spend your merienda time with greens + me!
RSVP is required. Workshop fee is discounted if you pay in advance and / or you bring a friend. Check out the poster for more details. You may make advanced payments via deposit at BPI Savings savings account # 3529-0762-65 (under the name MARIE THERESA I. GONZALEZ).
One of my hopes for 2012 is
for vegetable world domination / the vegetable apocalypse that the Philippines gets healthy, one meat-free meal and one green juice at a time. I’ve been doing my part so far through my Manila-based cooking and juice classes and workshops, as well as the occasional out-of-town trip (I know I’m overdue for a blog post on the Negros Organic Farmers Festival!).
I am pleased to announce that on the 21st of January, I will be heading Cebu-side and conducting a cooking workshop in the morning and juice and smoothie workshop in the afternoon in Amuma Spa, Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort. Catch morning yoga by Robert Vecchioni and a mindful eating workshop by Dr. Bill Ramos in the afternoon.
I haven’t visited Cebu since I was a young girl. I am particularly eager to check the beach out. I mean, I am practically quivering in excitement:
What have you done for your mom lately? My mom is my #1 fan (and ditto on my end, too) and she’s been patiently tolerating my addiction to sampaloc chopping boards and ginormous jars for my various fermentation projects. I once gave her a heart attack when I got my 7th ear piercing back in college (for the record, I’m back to 2. What was I thinking?!) and a second heart attack when we went from a zero-cat to 3-cat household.
In 2008 she was instrumental in getting my butt out of the kitchen – frosting cupcakes at 2am while waking up at 6am for my corporate day job – and into culinary school. She continues to inspire me to be a hard worker and my version of a strong, independent woman. She has bore 8 children and raised us to be pretty decent human beings. She wakes up at 5:30am everyday, can drive a bus-size van, never buys anything for herself (except for her signature lipstick and the occasional pedicure), and looks pretty amazing at her age. Where my family is composed of 70% men, I’m proud to say our household is quite matriarchal. Yes, my mother is the boss of us.
While we may not necessarily see eye-to-eye on certain issues – skirt lengths, vegetarianism, the edibility of durian – we both agree wholeheartedly that eyeliner is a girl’s best friend, education can’t be beat, and we need to eat (and drink!) our vegetables. Thanks to my vegetable geekery and jedi skills, my mother is more flexitarian, less omnivore, AND drinks green smoothies everyday. In fact, I have to admit my smoothies are pretty lame compared to hers – she goes whole hog with the malunggay, it’s no wonder she’s got the immune system of steel.
My mom, an active member of FAMCOHSEF, and I, headmistress of Kitchen Revolution, are holding a green juice and smoothie workshop on the 16th, Wednesday in Alabang. If you didn’t get to catch the green juice and smoothie workshop I held in St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City last month, come to this one! Check out the poster at the end of this blog post.
The workshop is sponsored by FAMCOHSEF, Inc. (Family Cooperation for Health Services Foundation) and proceeds from the fee (P1,000 per person) will go to funding this non-profit organization’s health training programs in Muntinlupa City. Find out more about the organization in the poster.
Sign up and learn how to love to drink your veggies! Send me an email or text – but do RSVP through Ladybird, contact details below.
OMG I know I am super backlogged with my Vegan MoFo posts but I did not expect last week to get quite hectic. Never fear, I’m going to catch up (if it’s the last thing I do), but…
I wanted to share that I will be conducting a green juice and smoothie workshop this Saturday morning (the 15th) at St Luke’s Medical Center, Quezon City. Check out the poster at the end of this post for more details. Ooh, did I mention that it’s F-R-E-E?
I held a workshop similar to this last June in Alabang and it went really well. Researching for the class has convinced me more than ever that the solution to life’s problems, tears, sicknesses, and hangovers is green juice and smoothies. True story, yo.
This workshop is sponsored by Corridor of Hope, the cancer support group of St Luke’s Cancer Institute (Multiply page here, Facebook page here) and headed by Ryan Fernandez, a friend of mine who’s as smashing a food photographer and writer as he is CoH’s president. Ryan himself is a survivor of Hodgkin’s lymphoma – which he was diagnosed with at 22 (!!) – and supplemented his cancer treatment with the love of green juice. I hear he still drinks a glass of green juice daily which, quite frankly, floors me.
Anyway, sign up and learn how to love to drink your veggies!
Edited to add: while the event is free, do RSVP through St Luke’s Cancer Institute / Joselyn at 723-0101 ext. 5247
