Sustainable eating and the Bisaya Vegetarian
What do we Cebuanos like to snack on?
Fish balls, peanuts, ngohiong,
bananacue, white bread, spaghetti,
cakes, junk food, crackers, chocolate,
the list of unhealthy snack food goes on...
I admit, I am guilt of this crime,
A form of masochistic eating...
We all know it is harmful to our bodies,
yet, we do it anyway...
Recently at Ananda Marga Wellness Center,
I learned how to snack on vegetable juice...
Yup, a vegetable juice...
to my surprise,
it is actually tasty...
What did I snack on?
Sayote, or chayote,
also called vegetable pear,
merliton, chouchoute, christophine, choko
is a Mexican vegetable
that has adopted quite well to Philippine soil,
that one would think of it as a Philippine veggie.
It is a member of the squash family.
At Ananda Marga Wellness Center,
they serve Sayote or Choko juice,
to lower high blood pressure.
No harm in trying...
from now on and onwards!!!
