I created this blog to help and inspire people take better care of themselves and the planet so we could all have healthier, happier lives. I believe that eating all natural whole foods will result in great health, long life, inner peace and overall wellbeing. Also, adapting an eco-friendly lifestyle gives a sense of contribution that will benefit many generations to come. Here you'll learn how to easily prepare delicious and nutritious plant-based food and make eco-friendly lifestyle decisions everyday. I am looking forward to help enrich lives and demonstrate how everyone can implement small changes to make choices that benefit not only ourselves but also everyone sharing this planet.

While researching about vegan sweeteners I stumbled upon this native sweetener, it's called tinaklob, inuyat or matamis na bao. It's made by melting raw sugar (muscovado) in coconut milk and then letting it cool in coconut shells hence the shape. It is really inexpensive at 17Php a pair, you just chop it in chunks and keep the rest in airtight containers. You can melt it by adding water to the consistency of your liking, use it to sweeten your drinks and desserts it's nutty taste lends a tropical flavor to sauces or dressings. and best of all it's VEGAN!
