Another part of being healthy is getting fit by means of exercise and one of the sponsors Fitness First was able to provide few information that will benefit most of us who doesn't really know that much. It is said that fit and healthy always come together. You can be fit but your not healthy or you can be healthy but not fit. So it's like Batman and Robin it should always be in motion together.
Aside from the healthy foods that they've introduced, the event was also the venue for awarding the winners of their contest "Soyami: Snacking Without the Guilt". The event was hosted by none other than their Health Ambassador Mark Nelsen, unfortunately Rovilson Fernandez couldn't make it that time but anyway Mark Nelsen alone did make our night not only healthy but as well as lively.
And the winners of the "Soyami: Snaking Without the Guilt" are 3rd Prize - Richard Mamuyac, 2nd Prize - Melanie Abuel and the 1st Prize - Paige San Juan. Well, for me better try next time! If SOYAMI will have another contest like this. Hehehe! At the end of the evening everyone did get a bag of goodies from their sponsors Q-Life: FaceOne, Suncoast: Lightwater and Vitamin Boost, Fruit Magic, Fernbelly - Treehugger, Haribon Foundation, Rudy Project, Tourne and Fitness First
Anyway, if you're wondering how was the Soyami Soya Chips Food Snack came about well it was the idea of Ms. Apple Morales (she looks like Jessa Zaragosa), President and Owner of AM Global Works Marketing Corp. According to her "Although our children have prepared snacks and food during their recess or lunch breaks, we cannot guarantee they won't buy or share with their classmates' bag of junk food" she continues "So instead of reprimanding them for eating the crunch-and-munch food they love, why not give them the same snack feel that is low in calorie count and sugar and is an excellent source of protein and fiber?"
Why soya? According to factoids.com, the yield of protein from soybeans is about twice that of meat, 12 times that of milk and four times that of eggs.
In addition, soy is also crucial for healthy brain cells. The brain which is formed by 20 percent phospholipids or more specifically lecithin is one of the substances found in soy. Therefore, including soy in kids’ diet generally contributes to better learning capabilities, brain performance and vitality while enhancing brain memory. Since soy has the most abundant properties of calcium and iron compared with other legumes, it can contribute in building healthy bones while producing hemoglobin or red blood cells needed for transporting oxygen in the body, a benefit that befits active and growing children.
On the other hand, for children who are computer and television addicts, Soyami Soya Chips may be an option to replace potato chips. Soy prevents child obesity because it is low in carbohydrates and it makes one feel fuller for a longer period of time.
Furthermore, with the isoflavone compounds it possesses called Genistein, it aids the body to stay lean and produce fewer and smaller fat cells.
Thus, Soyami Soya Chips, made of non-genetically modified organism (GMO) soya imported from Canada, will not cause food allergies, obesity, diabetes and some food-related diseases in any way, contrary to food with little or no nutritional value that contain high levels of flavor enhancers, saturated fats, salt, and sugar minus the required dietary fiber intake. It may also be enjoyed and cooked in other ways, as replacement for crunchy croutons used in salads and soups or as breadcrumbs for pork, chicken and fish fillets when crushed.
And being Halal-certified food, the manufacture of Soyami Soya Chips also took into consideration the dietary requirements of our health-conscious Muslim brothers.
Morales further enthused, “Soyami Soya Chips proves that not all food coming out from inviting snack packaging are junk but rather can be another good source of guilt-free snacking that promotes healthy eating habits as well.”
Soyami Soya Chips, those healthy-goodness snacks that appear like nacho chips come in Original, White Cheddar and Pizza flavors, are now available in leading supermarkets and groceries and in convenience stores throughout Metro Manila, Cebu and Davao.
