Richer, Meatier, Tastier Philippines

Author : Ragie Bacuetes

Food is the strong blessings of Philippines by way each prepare, cook, and eat food. We live in a warm and humid place where the climate, animals, fruits and vegetables were fantastic to live and eat. That every one can plant vegetables and fruits at their backyard, have pond of fish, poultry of chicken and piggery. It's a place where you can come up with different kinds and taste of fruits whether it is sweet, sour salty, bitter fruits all that can meet your taste sensations. Fruit is bountiful with mangoes, papayas, bananas, chicos, lanzones, guavas, rambutans, atis, coconuts, magosteens, pineapples, durians and a lot more. Tropical vegetables which I commonly eat like malunggay, carrots, kalabasa, gabi, kamote, kangkong, okra, pechay, sitaw, ampalaya and more of vegetables that are healthy and can easily plant and hearty one.

Even we have more of fruits and vegetables we Filipinos are also longing for meat. The demand for fresh meat like chicken, pork and meat are also high. I also wanted that my meal will always be pork or chicken dish. Any pork recipe and chicken recipe will do but I'm longing for chicken adobo. As I notice we Filipinos loves oil and fatty foods. During fiesta, birthdays, and all occasions pork are always present to serve. Lechon is serving during fiesta's and family celebrations. Some delicacy like Kare-kare, adobo which closest in our hearts, menudo, sinigang, metchado, kaldereta are all meat that we are craving for. But let's try to moderate what we are eating for a healthy living. More of Filipino today is unhealthy because lots of fats or meat was stored in our stomach that causes illness or even death. So today healthy living is very favored, they become conscious of what they eat, they regularly exercise and they become vegetarian. They all want to be physically fit and try to avoid eating pork and find alternative meat that can also indulge them.

We always want to feed our big appetite that can be seen with our culture because we eat several times at least five meals a day. We also eat lots of carbohydrates from the rice that we eat rice in breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes you can also have it during merienda. As part of food drinks from the Philippines are also in and on type of drink that is highly favored is chilled drink because of the country's geographical location. The traditional tuba is still in the province. Brandy, rhum, gin are the local favorites. Chilled drinks and cocktails of fresh fruits can refresh us during summer and another drink is tea that can be made at home like lemon or ginger. Kamayan is also part of our culture. When we eat using hands it is fun.

That's all we love Filipino food, from vegetables, fruits, meats, to drinks really full my appetite and satisfy my needs. You are not Filipino if you don't know how we eat, and what the food that we mostly like to eat. Come on let's eat and love the richer, meatier, tastier food of Filipino.
