HEALTHY OPTIONS: Now offers Organic Food

HEALTHY OPTIONS: Now offers Organic Food 

My aspiration for 2013 is to eat and live healthy. I badly needed to improve my well being and do some lifestyle changes for 2013. I am aware that I need to eat fresh and eat quality food. I should listen more to my body and give it what it needs. Balance.  Super foods. Time with nature. Nourishing my body. Nurturing my soul. Healthy, nutrient dense meals and snacks. Nourishing food. Organic. I should love myself more and know what is good for me. I am eager to find out where I could source organic food. That’s why when I got an invitation from Healthy options with the theme: Organika: Celebrating Life in the Farm, I readily agreed. 

The night started with cocktails of healthy foods at Shangri-la E-Bar. I got so giddy when I saw Healthy Options very unique centerpiece ideas. Some “wagi” centerpiece they have that night are:
  • organic corn
  • organic Camote
  • organic eggs

While eating we were serenaded with classic music by these musicians. Oh la la! How I wish I could play the Violin! #wish

Afterwards, we were asked to go to the tent outside. Look at all these cool nature-themed decors. 
 Inside the tent, Healthy Options announced about their organic products. The amazing Amanda Griffin hosted the event.
Yes! Healthy Options announcement is very timely. This is really a very good news to us my fellow Filipinos! Healthy Options, the country’s leading natural products store chain, proudly introduces organic produce and meat farmed locally, in keeping with its mission to provide the most nutritious, best-tasting, and top-quality products to health-conscious Filipinos.

‘Good food grown the good way’ hits Healthy Options stores this 2013 as the leading natural products brand will now offer organic vegetables, herbs, pork, chicken, and eggs sourced from local farmers. 

“By launching these products from our very own farm, we renew our commitment to giving our customers better choices for a better life. It is also a show of support to small organic farmers, and to healthy, humane, and sustainable farming,” says Healthy Options managing director Romy Sia. 
Nestled at the foot of the scenic Mt. Banahaw and near the two-storey high Majayjay Falls, the five-hectare organic farm is a promising local source of nutritious, flavorful, and top-quality products the store has been known for. 


Healthy Options shelves will now carry organic vegetables and herbs that are planted and harvested by hand. Nurtured only by sunlight, pure spring water, and organic compost, this fresh, tasty produce contains optimum nutrients. These gorgeous models walk the runway carrying various organic farm products of Healthy Options.

Healthy Options also showcases livestock-raising in an environment that cultivates their natural behavior and provides a better quality of life. As Mr. Sia proudly claims, “Our animals live in five-star conditions!” 

I got excited when I learned that the Healthy Option’s free range chickens can run around and forage for food, and are feed with wholesome grains, organic vegetable trimmings, and wild bugs and insects. Meanwhile, the pigs eat an all-natural diet of rice bran, duck weed, copra meal, fruits, and vegetables, and are raised in odor-free pens, with soft beddings made of soil, sawdust and carbonized rice hull. The stress-free environment allows natural instincts like foraging and scratching. How I wish I could visit their farm!

Healthy Options organic pigs live comfortably, in a stress-free environment that lets them exhibit natural instincts like rooting or scratching. They are raised without antibiotics or growth hormones.

Options organic chickens are allowed to roam free, and are fed on an
all-natural diet of wholesome grains, grass, and organic vegetables. Truly, the animals lead a happy and healthy life, and are treated with care and respect. They are then grown to an optimum weight at their own natural pace before they are slaughtered humanely, and are not subjected to any form of mutilation or cruelty. These practices greatly differ from those of industrial farms, which commonly use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on crops, and steroids, growth hormones, sub-therapeutic doses of antibiotics, and synthetic trace supplements on animals. 

Most commercial farms also practice mono-cropping which leads to higher pest attacks, use additives to hasten production, and cram poultry and livestock in very tight, unsanitary spaces that expose them to stress and diseases. 

Healthy Options organic eggs are freshly laid every day and are big in size, nutrition and flavor.

Healthy Options organic vegetables and herbs are naturally grown, freshly hand-picked, and are free from chemical fertilizers or pesticides.

Aside from offering superior meat and vegetable produce, Healthy Options is also proud to advocate farming that does not produce excessive waste or pollution, and results in a healthier ecosystem. 

“We will deliver products that have the Healthy Options guarantee of freshness and quality, just as we have been doing for more than a decade,” promises Mr. Sia. 

Let’s eat healthy!
