We have finally reached the entry way to the weekend, ladies and gents. Because of that it’s time to celebrate with—what else—good food! This weekend, we dare you to drop the ‘cheat day’ mantra and adopt the ‘healthy living’ mindset. And we at Breakfast are happy to help you do so. We took it upon ourselves to go on a hunt around Makati for healthy eats with our friends from Food Panda, and found some great spots to get your wholesome eating habit on.

1JUJU EATS

The homey casual interiors complement their movement for democratizing wellness

Wellness is not just for a select few and this is exactly what Juju Eats stands for. Here, you’ll find addictive veggie-heavy proportioned dishes. Then, there’s the Juju Cleanse drinks that started it all. Fresh, fast, healthy, and happy eats all under one roof? Now, that’s seriously some good juju!

2DOWN TO EARTH

The farm-to-table vibe is strong with this one

This mom and pop restaurant-shop along San Antonio Village pays homage to the farm-to-table movement. They pride themselves of 100 percent organic produce and products from their homebase farm in Bukidnon–yes, we’re talking everything from their meats to their veggies to their bottled goods, and everything else in between. Thus, their philosophy: Real Food, Real Farmers.

3JUICESABEL

You’ll find this dainty all-vegan café amidst the grunge of B-Side

Going vegan can just be as delectable—or even better—and  such is the case with JuiceSabel’s ‘no dairy, everything plantbased’ food fares. Their menu consists of a variety of comfort food faves and staple Pinoy grub, but with healthier alternatives like tofu and chicpeas, among many others. They also specialize in a bevy of cold-pressed juices, which beats the summer heat, minus the guilt.
