Egg is considered as one of the Filipino’s breakfast staples. This largely versatile food can be fried, poached or boiled. It is also an essential ingredient in most baked products. 

Whether you like it scrambled or sunny side up, eating egg is important for it is a good source of protein, choline and essential vitamins necessary for the body. Thus, Philippine Egg Board Association, together with The Good Egg by Sarimanok, emphasizes the importance of one egg a day to families.

According to Philippine Egg Board Association, having an egg a day is vital to one’s health as it manages weight, provides muscle strength and prevents muscle-loss, leads to better brain function and maintains eyes health. For women, it is good to include egg in your meal for it contributes to healthy pregnancy.

To further promote this advocacy and celebrate the upcoming World Egg Day on October, Guerilla Race and the aforementioned institutions have teamed up and designed an exciting adventure for families dubbed as “Eggciting Adventure Day #itloglusogeveryday.” This first ever event made for Filipino families aims to raise awareness as well as include egg in a day’s meal.

The Dependable and Functional Simple Touch Cordless Kettle

Hot water is a necessity in our family. We often use it in preparing hot drinks, cooking soups and viands, bathing, and crafting (For example, heating prepared resin or melting dry poster paints).  To boil water easily and quickly, we use a cordless kettle. It only takes three minutes or less to heat 1.6 liter of water. We are using this for years and we consider this as one of the widely used kitchen tools here at home.

Aside from a staple kitchen tool, our family doesn’t forget to bring a cordless kettle whenever we travel, stay overnight in a relatives' house, or when a family member gets hospitalized. It is very helpful especially when we need to heat our food or drink something hot. Guaranteed that it's very useful in cases of emergency.

When SIMPLE TOUCH sent me a cordless kettle, I felt so ecstatic and excited to use it immediately. It was coincidental that it arrived on a rainy day, perfect for preparing and sipping a hot cup of coffee!

On first use, I fell in love with it. It was easy to operate. No manual was needed for me to figure out how it would function. 

These are the reasons why I love Simple Touch Cordless Kettle:

Simple Touch Cordless Kettle is sleek and has modern design. It definitely adds a touch of elegance in our kitchen.

I can always use it towards any available electric outlet due to its 360 degree connector on the power base.

It’s body is made of high grade stainless steel and added concealing heating element, dry boil protection, to keep me at peace that it is safe and can last longer.

It has single water gauge to indicate the water level. I also like that it has 1.7 liter capacity, bigger than the one that I am currently using.

I can open and close it using the button open lid. The filter can be detached easily.

The switch button can be tapped gently and lights up (turns from transparent to orange) while in use. The light turns off automatically which means that the kettle is already turned off and water is hot and ready to use.

I also don’t need a transformer because it is AC 220-230V, 60 HZ, 2200 Watts.

It can  plug it on three-hole or two-hole female socket. For the latter, I just need an adapter.

I can guarantee that it is functional at its best! Boiling water is easy using Simple Touch! I really, really love it! It's classy, dependable, and most important of all, very functional! If you are looking for an affordable high quality cordless kettle, I recommend Simple Touch Cordless Kettle. It's available in S&R Stores for only Php999.95.

GLAD Kitchen Philippines Helps Hawkers Face Foodie Rush at World Street Food Congress 2016

During the recently-concluded World Street Food Congress held at the Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City, thousands of diners started overwhelming the street food hawkers who participated and they never failed to give their best in facing the foodie rush because a leading brand of kitchen aids provided "extra pairs of hands".

GLAD, the homemakers' partner in food protection and kitchen management provided participants with plastic food storage prior to the event. The food containers also had tight sealing lids, allowing them to prevent leaks and keep the food's freshness last longer. 

Isabel Sanchez-Huerta, who manned the US booth that served mexican dessert Churros Locos said that Glad plastic containers were very reliable. GladWare Entree Containers enabled her to score a sellout for her Churros Locos- a fried dough pastry with vanilla ice cream, chocolate, strawberry, and caramel sauce topped with nuts and sprinkles. "Just knowing it was easy to open and close so you don't make up a mess helped us with the process. It also enabled us to lessen the number of clean ups, which sure helped us in not breaking up or clogging up the whole line of production," she added.

GLAD Storage Zipper Bag, Freezer Zipper Bag, ClingWrap, Press N' Seal and GladWare containers were provided to the Mindanao street food booth, one of the five Philippine booths that participated in the event. "Being transparent, you can see the contents right away even while they are still inside the freezer," said Chef Clinton Gregorio, head of Mindanao booth that offered the southern delicacies Durian-Biagsong Pannacota and Sinuglaw.

Both the Mindanao and US booths were able to serve endless orders efficiently from customers who mobbed them during the five-day event. Aside from serving good food, they also offered free cooking demonstrations and live band entertainment.

Malaysia's Donald and Lily, another booth who participated, also used GladWare containers in selling their Mee Siam. This dish is a bowl of thin rice noodles served with a tangy sweet and spicy gravy embellished with sambal and topped with seafood, egg, and fish cakes.

Paolo Lao, Sales and Marketing Director of Glad Kitchen Philippines, said that their sponsorship and participation in the event forms part of their desire to teach more Filipinos the importance of proper food storage and protection. He said that aside from the practical uses of GLAD products like GladWare which was made more evident during the World Street Food Congress, Glad would want Filipinos to know that proper food handling is very vital in keeping food safer and fresher longer.

GladWare is also ideal for storing leftover  food in the refrigerator, for packing school lunches or transporting picnic food like sandwiches. The lids that seal tightly also prevent leaks and are interlocking to prevent from getting misplaced. The containers are sturdy, reusable and safe to use in microwave, freezer, and dishwasher.

One of the objectives of the congress, according to Javier Hernandez, Assistant Vice President of Ayala Land Inc., was to inspire Filipinos to start a small food business, just like this year's participants who started as street food hawkers then later on became restaurant operators. "Starting a food business does not necessarily mean putting up a restaurant right away. You can start with a dish that your lola told you, or a specialty of your family. You can start with one or two products and sell them in a little weekend market, in a cart or in a kiosk," he ends with a smile.

This year's event also featured food preparation demonstrations from world renowned chefs like Malcolm Lee of Candlenut restaurant in Singapore, Peter Lloyd of Spice Market London, William Wongso of Indonesia, Claude Tayag of Bale Datung, JP Anglo of Sarsa Restaurant and French-trained Filipino chef Sau Del Rosario, aside from bringing and introducing popular foreign street foods to the country.
