For the health conscious or those who simply want to lose weight, buffet eating has always received some bad reputation. Fatty, oily, tasteless, bad cholesterol, even too pricey—these are just a few of the reasons why Filipinos tend to have a love-hate relationship with buffets.
The impression that buffets are only for super-eaters who induce themselves to food coma is about to change with a restaurant’s newly launched Healthy Buffet concept. For only Php499++, diners will mindfully enjoy healthy dishes to suit their particular dietary requirements whether it’s Keto, vegan, or high protein, to name a few. The meal includes coolers made from fresh fruits, salads, appetizers, entrées, a hot drink like coffee or turmeric tea, and sugar-free or keto desserts. This month, Healthy Meals PH is offering a 3 + 1 promotion, wherein the forth diner for a company of four may enjoy the buffet for free.
At Healthy Meals PH, a charming and cozy restaurant in Quezon City, all dishes for its unique healthy buffet concept are cooked using healthy cooking techniques with no added additives or preservatives. All dishes are made flavorful with natural herbs and spices
Rad Pelayo, a lifestyle coach, weight management consultant, and owner of Healthy Meals PH, encourages diners to savor the buffet and think of it as a celebration, “You celebrate without the guilt. It’s a treat, not a ‘cheat.’ Because you’ve been taking care of yourself by working out regularly and eating well. Others may try out the buffet to jumpstart their own fitness journey and discover which diets would suit their taste and lifestyle. Diet foods don’t have to be bland or unexciting.”
Among the offerings of the buffer are Ketogenic dishes like Chicken Crusted Pizza, Beef Kaldereta, and Pata Tim; high-protein dishes like Baked Hardinera; and vegan items like vegan wraps, Kare-Kare, and Pasta with Tomato or Pesto Sauces. Sugar-free desserts include the Stevia Cacao Cupcakes and Oatmeal Cookies.
Healthy Meals PH started out as a take-out and delivery meal business, providing diet-specific meals to customers in gyms, condo buildings, corporate centers, and medical hospitals, to name a few. The restaurant was born from the business’ take-out store wherein Rad’s clients would also meet up, bond, and just chill out.
That take-out store has been converted and launched into Healthy Meals PH. The 30-seat dining area has a relaxing ambiance enhanced by a tropical-themed interiors and calming music. The soothing atmosphere complements the spa right beside Healthy Meals PH.
