As a Stay-at-home mom sometimes , I just feel so tired and with my age ( just got 30) , I felt a bit older than that. Moms could agree with me that with the housework and with a heap of things we'd like to do .. time seems to be so short. For an instance I want to take my chance on everything forgetting that I'm only human , I forget to eat  my meals on time, with only a few hours of sleep because of some online tasks I had to do. That was sure to get me drained-out of energy. Good thing Sustagen Premium is here!

SUSTAGEN PREMIUM is a nutritional milk drink specially formulated for adults. 

It has a Multi-Defense System that helps strengthen the body's resistance against common conditions that come as we age. It is also considered a good source of Vit. B6,B12, and Folate ( known to reduce the risk of heart diseases), Potassium and Magnesium ( gives protective effects on blood pressure.) , Calcium and Vit. D (helps maintain Bone Health), Zinc and Vit.A (prmotes normal immune function), Vit. C and EB-Complex, vitamins, Iron,and Iodine (prevents oxidative stress), ( which help fight lethargy and support Physical activity and most of all it has Dietary Fiber  ( as natural fiber /prebiotics) that helps reduce LDL-cholesterol ( ex. bad cholesterol) and support digestive health.

With all that nutritional information that SUSTAGEN PREMIUM can offer,We can now fight Body Aging.

Just last february 23, 2011 , I was invited to attend to it's press launch! It was held at 55 Events Place at Scout Rallos Timog, Q.C . And upon entering I was greeted by this tarpaulin that got me asking the same question to myself.

Here's fellow blogger of Sa Wari Ko.Com
Hey, Flow what's your Body Age? 

Upon signing at the registration for the Bloggers with were ushered to take the BODY AGE CHALLENGE.First you would be ushered to fill up some infos about your lifestyle and and a sensor will be attached to your finger while you exhale and inhale in 1 minute. After taking my turn , i wasn't really feeling afraid of the results...and guess what despite of some vices I have and some unhealthy practices my Calendar Age is 30.1 and my Biological age is 25.5! meaning my body's younger than my calendar age.
 But that's not a reason for me to rejoice. The Dietician told me I still have to practice healthy eating,eat on time , don't skip meals as these will  just keep me from eating unwanted amount of food.

Here are also some tips I would like to share with you on HOW TO FIGHT BODY AGING.
1.) First Buy 1 can of  SUSTAGEN PREMIUM in Vanilla or Chocolate. ( either of the 2 flavors is good!)

    If you are always on the go , you can still manage some quick exercising like running around in your village and breathe some fresh air.

     Quit smoking and drinking too much alcohol , these will only speed up the aging process.

     Always make it a point to have your yearly medical check-up.

   Always have time for self. Allow your self to breathe from the busy lifestyle . Treat yourself to a massage. Or stay indoors and try be "offline" from the online world.. Give yourself at least 8 hours of sleep.

   Eat healthy ! Try to eat foods that can be cooked by broiling instead of frying.. Eat a lot of green and leafy vegetables and fruits.and lots of water!

We Filipinos are fond of eating rice on our breakfast. I am a living testimony of it. I grew from a family that eats rice with a combination usually of our favorite hotdog, Tapa or Bangus. For us it is considered a breakfast if it served with " Fried" rice or "steaming" newly cooked rice.  Even now that I have a family of my own , I make sure that once my kids wakes up in the morning , The breakfast table is already set. Eating Breakfast is a must most specially this is considered our first meal of the day. Nutritionist usually recommends to eat a lot in the morning since it is important that we are properly fed to have the much -needed energy requirement that our daily physical activities requires. But here's my recent gastronomic experience that will be waking you off from you every morning of your life...Been wanting to know where is my latest gastronomic get-away just recently?

Figaro Tomas Morato


           BEEF TAPA SUPREME  P150 
Fried Slices of marinated Beef served also with Toamto-Cucumber salsa , rice with bits of toasted Garlic and egg.

My personal favorite from the All Day Breakfast Menu of Figaro Coffee. 


Another favorite! I recommend this for the people on the watch of their diet. Marinated boneless Bangus with tomato-cucumber salsa rice with bits of toasted garlic. But much better if there's more salsa , right?

This breakfast gourmet meal also comes with brewed coffee. Not bad for the pockets! hahaha!

Figaro Coffee not only has breakfast meals But for those who love Cold Coffee drinks, here's their new line !

Having a shot of my fave BLACK BERRY MOCHA FROST ! I have to slowly sipped it so the taste of it will linger on my taste buds!

It's hard to choose from the two since I both loved the concoctions but in the the end The Black Berry Mocha Frost won my heart. Both Drinks are ice-blended but their difference is that the first one has Black Berry flavor while the other one has White Chocolate and Nutty Macadamia but both with Whipped cream. How about you ? What's your choice?

And for the Pasta Lovers out there..Here's what Figaro Coffee has for you...
Piccanti Gamberetti at P199

This Linguini pasta is  with Shrimp that's why i love it. Having Shrimp on my pasta is a different experience. After having tasted it , Uhmmm, It's yummy! Nowadays it's nice eating taking note of the healthy side. It also has Olive oil, dried chili topped with finely chopped garlic and Parmesan Cheese.

Aglio Olio at P169
Also a Linguini pasta in garlic, Olive oil with the addition of Dried Chili Flakes garnished with finely chopped parsley and Parmesan Cheese and 2 slices also of Garlic Bread.
After the PASTAS here comes another favorite ... Figaro Coffee PERFECTLY PIZZA ...
This is a personalized pizza and I'm loving it because it's topped with "Fresh" ingredients like BASIL and TOMATO and Mozarrella Cheese . It's light on the tummy so no worries for those who don't want that additional "bulge".
SPAGNOLO SARDINE is a personalized pizza too topped with Sardines, Green bell-pepper, Black Olives, fresh Tomatoes and Pizza Cheese and Mozarrella cheese. Oh! I'm  craving again for this pizza while I'm doing this post1 What Do I do !?
Wait here's more ...The CALZONES !!!
CALZONES at P85 each

Figaro Coffee has two Calzones offering to indulge...PEPPERONI CALZONE a turnover made from soft and chewable pizza dough with PEPPERONI, Cheese, and Tomato filling. The 2nd one is SUPREME CALZONE , a turnover also made from soft and chewable pizza dough with ITALIAN SAUSAGE, Cheese and Tomato filling. I both love this two Calzones. I prefer this with PEACH LATTE at P110 a cup . 
 Peach Latte at P110 each
Peach Latte is a burst of sweet and fruity goodness , 100% Premium Arabica Beans and refreshingly Smooth while Chocolate Cookie Latte has Chocolate and freshly-baked cookies with Premium Arabica Beans. Either of the two  is also best served with TIRAMISU ECLAIR.
Tiramisu Eclair at P65 each

This eclair is very different from the other eclairs I have tasted. Before tasting it I said to myself  "another bulk on my tummy" but after having a bite , it feels like as if it's not full of sugar in its content. This eclair is also made from cream-puff pastry dough. It is split length-wise and filled with Tiramisu-flavored cream and finished with a coating and drizzle of White chocolate and Almond nuts.

Figaro Coffee has many and varied offerings this 2011 for us coffee and food enthusiasts. and for these Valentine's Day Figaro Coffee has a "Sweet" Treat to all of us. Read above for more info! 
Trivia: Figaro Coffee is the first "FILIPINO"-owned Coffee Company.The first Figaro branch opened it's first store in Glorietta in November 1993.
After having my coffee experience at Figaro i must say that their coffee and food offerings will surely suit the Filipino tastebud.
