Give Mom the Healthy and Delicious Hurom Squeeze This Mother’s Day

Moms have always made sure that their kids are in the pink of health. They have undertaken countless ways, both stealthy and overt, to make sure you eat your vegetables, take your vitamins and consume good nutritive food you may not have always been so inclined to eat. Now that you’re older, you owe your good health to your mother. It’s time to give that gift of health back to her. 
We are all aware that many health campaigns all over the world advice the intake of at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables for better health.  According to a 13-year study by University College London, a daily average of more than seven plates of fruits and vegetable drastically reduces the risk of all-cause mortality. Fruits and vegetables are not only abundant in vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber, but in phytochemicals and enzymes as well. These substances have powerful antioxidant effects such as anti-aging, skin care, promoting immunity, among many others.  

The amount of enzymes in our bodies gradually decreases with age and they do not replace themselves. So, why is this important? Enzymes are essential to creating energy in your body. If you lack enzymes, it is harder for your body to convert food into energy, making you more easily fatigued. They must be supplemented by food, and fruits and vegetables contain the most enzymes. Consuming five to seven plates of fruits and vegetables is easier than done.  An alternative to supplement your required daily intake of fruit and vegetables is to drink it. These liquid vitamins taste better, too:  a refreshing glass of vitamins, minerals and enzymes? No wonder juicing is now at an all time high, a trend that is set to become a fixture in daily life. The popularity of juicing has resulted in a proliferation of juicers, so how do you pick the one that best suits your needs, or better yet, one that keeps your health at the forefront of their research.

Hurom has spent over 40 years perfecting juice. Their patented Slow Squeeze Technology uses an auger to squeeze out juice (similar to how you would hand-squeeze an orange) instead of shredding fruits and vegetables with high-speed blades like other juicers and blenders. This motion minimizes damage to ingredients, keeping natural taste and nutrition intact.  In microscopic close ups of Hurom-made tomato juice, the juice retains its natural color and cellular structure.
 Hurom juicers are also built to last since maximum juicing health ideally means a daily diet of fresh juices. Materials like ultem, tritan, and stainless steel, some of which are used to build spaceships, make up your Hurom juicer. Hurom results in a higher yield of healthy unprocessed juice that will taste great for 72 hours.
Of course you don’t want the same juice every day, so whether you like sweet and sour fruits or leafy greens or nut milk, a Hurom juicer lets you pick from a wide array of fruits & vegetables, nuts and seeds, and herbs & spices. Hurom is more than just a juicer. Depending on the model, there are many preparations you can do with Hurom such as almond milk and even fresh noodles. Certain Hurom models even have an attachment where you can make healthy pure fruit sherbets and ice cream.  

A Hurom juicer is also easy to use & clean. This is something important to the makers because they know if it’s easy to assemble and clean, consumers will use it more. Hurom juicers are 100% BPA free and come without any blades or sharp parts, making it safe for children to use. The narrow hoppers are designed so that even the smallest hands can’t fit inside.
Hurom ambassador Lee Young Ae, better known as Dae Jang Geum, her character in “Jewel in the Palace” is a health conscious mom, “I make fruit and veggie juice with Hurom for myself and my family. My kids don’t like fruits and vegetables,” she admits, which is a common problem all parents share. “But if I make fruit and veggie juice with Hurom, they love it. This is my secret to make them to eat fruit and veggies.” In a commercial that aired on Korean TV, Young Ae is shown juicing apples and carrots on a Hurom juicer for her son, and he drinks it up happily, none the wiser that it’s packed with nutrition. In other ads she is seen holding a juicing party with friends and another one, where she pours her fresh juice in bottles and takes them to work.  “I make different juices every day,” she says referring to Hurom recipe book. “But my mom loves to make soy noodle with the Hurom slow juicer.” As you can see, Hurom is for all generations of women. 
 The result is over a million in more than 70 countries make juice with a Hurom juicer, making Hurom the global leader. Wouldn’t you want to give your mom the best? 

2016 New Hurom H-AA Series Slow Juicers are available in Abenson, Anson Link, Duty Free, Gourdo’s, Rustan’s, Landmark, Royal Duty Free, S&R, SM Appliance, SM Home, True Value, and Western Appliances.

Chanel Olive Thomas: Jake Cuenca's ex-gf is now Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017

L-R: Bb. Pilipinas International 2017 Mariel de Leon, Bb. Pilipinas Universe 2017 Rachel Peters and Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017 Chanel Olive Thomas 

The newly-crowned Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017 is a Fil-Australian beauty, Chanel Olive Thomas. She was raised in Australia with a Filipina mother who hails from San Antonio, Nueva Ecija. She fell in love with the Philippines when she visited last 2014 and never came back to Australia since she had modelling job offers here while she had no commitments back in Australia. 

Her romantic ties with Kapamilya actor Jake Cuenca began sometime in April 2014 but didn't last for a year even if they tried to reconcile. Oh well, when it was time for Chanel to move on and start anew with her career, she has engaged herself into something she has never done before. 

She has joined a beauty pageant for the first time in May 2015, at the Miss Philippines Earth. It was the time when I met her personally during the delegates' welcome luncheon hosted by Yoshinoya Phils. SM Megamall branch. She has a ready-smile for everyone and very friendly too. Fortunate enough, she was crowned Miss Philippines Air 2015 while Angelia Ong got the main title, Miss Philippines Earth 2015. 

This is me with the newly-crowned Bb. Pilipinas Supranational 2017 Chanel Olive Thomas during their Yoshinoya luncheon

If I will be given a chance again, I'd love to see her again and have a one-on-one interview with her. Would like to congratulate her personally and learn more of her success journey as a beauty queen. 

Congratulations Chanel and good luck on the coming international competition!!!

Ms. Gloria Romero in GMA's Sunday Grande via "Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko"

Ms. Gloria Romero with the kids of "Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko,"  David Remo, Chlaui Malayao, Jillian Ward and Julius Miguel.

Ms. Gloria Romero, tagged as the "Millennial Lola," for her funny and cool role in "Meant To Be," has another project in GMA Network. She'll be playing as Lola Goreng, a fairy grandmother of  Alice and Elvis portrayed by Jillian Ward and David Remo, respectively via the new kid-friendly, family oriented tv show "Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko." 

Ms. Gloria Romero as Lola Goreng 

This new Kapuso tv show caters to the kids, kids at heart and adults since it delivers good family values, and lessons depicted in a playful manner that everyone would surely love. The magical adventures of Lola Goreng together with Alice, Elvis, Moira (Chlaui Maglayao), the girl who they found on the streets and to add more magic in the story, there's Jomel (Julius Miguel) will definitely make all your Sunday afternoons grand! 

Ms. Gloria Romero, has nothing but all praises to all the kids in the cast. She said that she finds them commendable because they must've really love their craft. She said, "Sa totoo lang, itong mga batang kasama ko dito ang gagaling, I can see their passion in acting. Minsan nahihiya nga ako kasi ako 'yung madalas magkamali. Sila, they van deliver their dialogues right away. Alam nila agad 'yung lines nila. They come to the set prepared. So ako, nahihiya ako whenever nagkakamali ako." 

The wholle cast of "Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko" with direk Rico Gutierrez 

During the presscon, Ms. Gloria aka Lola Goreng even told the press that, "Actually, I am so blessed talaga noh, sa edad kong ito, nabibigyan pa ako ng isang role na ganito, sa edad kong 83 years old, di ko na kailangang mag-prosthetics pa para maging lola haha. This particular one, talagang matagal kong inintay ang role na 'to, nakakabata talaga, kay gagaling na mga artista at kay direk, direk thank you for your patience and I'm sure this is going to be a wonderful project for all of us." 

Ms. Gloria Romero was once local showbiz's Queen of Philippines movies during her era. I remember my mom and my grandma how they recall Ms. Gloria's angelic and perfect face like no other. She was the real epitome of a queen. I feel so happy for her that until now, she still can act and she's A-ok healthy with a sharp memory. Good thing that GMA Network is so trustful to her and still believe in her capabilities as an actress. 

"Daig Kayo ng Lola" ko premieres this April 30 on Sunday Grande over Kapuso network with the Queen of Primetime, Marian Rivera-Dantes as their celebrity guest for their pilot episode. 

As for me, I also feel fortunate and privileged to finally see and meet her. Close enough to have her picture taken with me.
