Blogapalooza | Healthy First Carrot Juice

Even before the Blogapalooza, I already know about the Healthy First Carrot Juice because I always see their booth whenever I visit the Sidcor Weekend Market. I see them as a very enthusiastic company - offering free taste of their carrot juice to everyone who passes by the aisle where their booth is located. Back when the weekend market was located at the grounds of Lung Center of the Philippines, I always eat my meal at Tita Norm's, which was right next to their booth. Needless to say, I would often buy their juice to go with my meal. :)

Healthy First started in 2007. Reading their history from their Facebook Page, it was so interesting how blessings came to them - from a vegetable juicer, to helping an apostolic work for the Baguio farmers. They then started producing homemade carrot juice, which they offered to weekend market shoppers as their way of promoting a healthier way of drinking juice.

Healthy First carrot juice is available in 500ml. bottles for 45 pesos each. Their juice has no preservatives, and that they use only purified and energized alkaline water.

Flavors available include:
  • Carrot - Mango - Melon
  • Carrot - Mango
  • Carrot - Strawberry
  • Carrot - Pineapple - Lychee
  • Carrot - Four Seasons (carrot, apple, mango, melon)
  • Carrot - Mango - Lychee
  • Carrot - Melon

Like I said, I have been one of their patrons since then, but I always go for the four seasons because it had more fruit flavors, haha. At the Blogapalooza, though, I chose the Carrot - Strawberry, and it was refreshingly good. It also had bits of strawberries inside, something that made my drink worth its price. Imagine how much strawberries cost these days...

We all know that carrots are rich in Vitamin A and Beta-Carotene - it can help with our eyesight... but it also protects our heart, it prevents constipation, it combats cancer and it promotes weight loss.

Jenn, the Foodie

I come from a family who loves cooking and eating. I never had any formal training in cooking and that I taught myself how to cook based on the handed down recipes, but I could say that I can cook good food. In 2008, I started documenting my food trips for my travel blog, and since I have quite enough to start a food blog, might as well put all those food trips in one location. Thus, a food blog is born - thanks to the new Friendster Blogs. However, due to several problems, I was left with no choice but to pack bags again and move here instead. Here's the permanent address, promise! Enough talk, let the food trippin' begin! {Know More About Me}
