Eco Farm Batangas


I think it was 5 years ago when we went to Eco Farm in Sto. Tomas, Batangas for an overnight Lent retreat. Not that I observe Lent, but in my post about the trip in one of my blogs, I said, "Lent should be a time for fun and celebration because when Jesus died, it was access for us to heaven for eternity!" or something to that effect. So, we had so much fun that time.

Eco Farm is a real farm where fruit trees and other plants abound. We didn't have time to explore the whole place but what we saw was impressive enough, especially the rambutan trees. There were also 3 small mansions (two of which have bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bathrooms), which were our accommodations actually, the kiddy and adult pools, the orchard, sprawling lawns where I conducted a treasure hunt, picnic area, a common dining on the ground floor, a video room near the pool, and the native huts.

Eco Farm is ideal for family, church or company outing. It is both far enough from town to enjoy peace and quiet and near enough to access commercial establishments easily for anything you need to buy. From Makati it's probably just 45 minutes. I hope we go back there one vacation time.

In the morning, the cool quiet surroundings were perfect (cool even in April!) for Word meditation and a round of martial arts workout. It was fun just staying by the picnic sheds near the pool all morning and afternoon, munching on food and chatting about life, reminiscing the past, having lots of laughter, and watching the kids play. Everything was like a poem and a song.

If you want to make inquiries or book the place, just Google it by typing Eco Farm Batangas. You'd see a mobile phone contact number. Last time I Googled it, this was the result:

Santa Maria, Santo Tomas, Lalawigan ng Batangas

Double check just in case.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits?

Up to now, I see lots of folks who do not know the right way of eating fruits. I hate to see good, fresh fruits all go to waste and worse, actually harm the body.

Sometimes, I even see supposedly health buffs eat fruits the wrong way. And I'm shocked. I'd like to share with them the right way to eat fruits but I dread offending them---they're supposed to be experts.

Fresh fruits are good, to be sure. But if eaten wrongly they can rot in the intestine and actually produce deadly toxins there, ruining your health instead of helping it. Imagine buying costly fresh fruits only to poison your body with it.

Always remember this---eat fresh fruits first. Always. Before you put anything in your tummy, put fresh fruits first. And then eat your veggies. And then your fish and meat. A lot of people treat fruits as dessert---which is dead wrong.

Why?

If you eat fish and meat first (and fruits later), these things take 72 hours (3 days) to digest. So, if fruits wait last in line, they…
