Sugarleaf… foods that nourish debuts in Greenhills, San Juan
After a couple months of soft-opening, Sugarleaf, a healthy-eats resto-store recently opened its first branch along Wilson Street with a ribbon-cutting & blessing ceremony marking its foray in the restaurant scene in Greenhills, San Juan.
Celebrity couple & healthy living advocates Ronnie & Mariz Rickets & Greenhills barangay chairman Lorenzo Tañada Yam cut the ceremonial ribbon followed by a simple blessing, healthy cocktails & raffle.
“We aim to make organic produce available on a regular basis rather than its current availably limited to weekend markets. More importantly, we aim to serve up yummy food appealing to all ages. One can prepare the healthiest dishes but if it’s not palatable especially to the young ones, it goes contrary to our mission.
We want to start kids eating healthy rather than have to struggle with them later on in life – when they already have health issues. The food we take in is something we have complete control of while external factors such as pollution, stress are oftentimes inevitable”.
“In the course of operations, we’ve realized that a big part of what we do is educating people about the variety of healthier lifestyle & food options available. Aside from our operations, we have gotten a strong following for our health & wellness talks & seminars which cover a variety of topics from super & living foods, all-natural sweeteners, alternative healing, detoxification & a lot more. In fact, we’ve pretty much lined up our calendar with events up until December 2011”.
“We also welcome Goody Kefir into Sugarleaf’s line of healthy eats with its complete line of food & beverages that contain probiotics & an abundance of nutrients. Jeren Cabral-Lorenzo, a talented & dedicated food technologist, really made an effort to turn a usually sour beverage into kid-friendly preparations such as fruit smoothies, sandwich wraps & pasta sauces – a hit at the cocktails served during our event”.
Aside from healthy-eat salads, soups, sandwiches & guilt-free desserts, Sugarleaf also serves breakfast, snacks & a line of healthy beverages such as kombucha, organic herb tisanes, artisan roasted coffee & more.
The event was supported by Sugarleaf’s partners in good health: Suchero, Roaster Juan, Planet Health, McRaf, Uniwide, Geofarm, Bikram Yoga Greenhills & Alabang.
Representatives of the EVA Charity Foundation & the Circle of Friends Foundation, Inc. were also present as the restaurant supports them by displaying their beautiful hand-made products at the store. EVACF benefits indigenous peoples in Region 3 while COFFI helps people with disabilities.
Our Baby Shower Celebration, its a shower of blessing! and we are getting ready for the birth of our baby girl – Beatriz Nancy Lorenzo anytime this month. Thanks to family and friends who attended our store blessings and give their utmost support to our new exciting mini grocery- cafe!
Thank you everyone for coming! See you again at Sugarleaf!
