Shaving Coconuts

Buko 101! I have long wanted to learn how to trim coconuts properly. Looks like an amused Mang Jun, the coconut vendor in Quezon City is pleased to train his apprentice. PS. The lesson wasn’t easy. Coconuts can be your lifesaver. Whether you are thirsty or hungry it’s the healthiest food you can eat. It keeps you hydrated and energized for hours. #gethealthy #coconuts


There’s something about Manila Bay sunsets. Immediately you are magnetized by its splendor. It’s the perfect time to reflect on and give thanks for another day well-lived. Seize the moment to give thanks for yet another day of life. Plus, the promise of a sunrise tomorrow. Did you catch the sunset today? #iamcoryquirino #sunsets

Eat healthy

It’s not just the taste buds we are after. It’s also the healthy goodness of what we eat. Thai cuisine is loaded with spices like star anise, cinnamon, cloves, chillies, coconut milk, kafir lime , coriander seed and nutmeg among others. Their combined benefits include: improves circulation ( thus, the libido)  provides upper respiratory relief, controls blood sugar, speeds up metabolism, boosts weight loss, improves digestive problems. Go Thai today. You will see that I am carrying a plate of papaya salad and fish cakes, just some of my favorites. Go Thai. Get healthy. #iamcoryquirino #thaifood #spices #gethealthy


Chilling is the art of just simply sitting back. When you are on chill-mode, there is no hurry to beat deadlines, rush papers or catch up on matters of urgency. Because we are used to being too busy, our high levels of adrenaline may become the new normal. Not good. So, if you value your life, then you will learn the art of doing nothing- even for just a while.  @coryquirino #serenitynow #sitting

There are days that are so toxic

There are days that are so toxic , you don’t seem to have time to catch your breath. But you should make time. Today, despite my busy schedule, I made sure to eat super healthy with Indian cuisine. All that turmeric in curry fights inflammation. This means a stronger you. Can you see? The golden elephant agrees. #iamcoryquirino #turmeric #gethealthy

Put on a happy face.

Put on a happy face. When you think happy, you project happiness. Choose a rainbow-inspired mood for everyday. That’s what Summer is all about- to celebrate life as best as we can. #iamcoryquirino #happy

Looking for that sugar rush?

Looking for that sugar rush? So shall we make it sugar-free or not? If you are a dessert person, try something made with natural sugar substitutes like coconut sugar or stevia. No worries about having a high-blood sugar condition or even diabetes. Both are low on the glycemic index. This means that your blood sugar will not spike. And the other good thing is that you still have the same sweet, satisfying sensation that sugar cane gives you.
So take the safer sugar from now on. #iamcoryquirino #sugar

Don’t underestimate that big, old shady tree.

Don’t underestimate that big, old shady tree. It can block damaging UVB rays which cause skin cancer. A friendly Safe-Summer reminder: when outdoors always trust a tree to give you shade from the sun’s intense rays. Remember, a little cover is better than nothing. Be guided and take care. #iamcoryquirino #trees

Yes, salad is diet food.

Yes, salad is diet food. But the creamy dressing is not! So go easy on that yummy dressing. Practice moderation, ok? Look, even the cooks seem to agree. #iamcoryquirino #get healthy #salad
