Convenient Store is not a new thing in our country especially in the Metro. They are everywhere, in the right spot, just where we need them to be. Most of us depend on them especially for those busy working peeps or students. In the morning, when you’re on the rush to go to work or school and have no time to prepare breakfast, in the evening when you go home and just too tired to prepare your dinner, or just anytime you feel like eating and your fridge is out of stock. Because of that, we ignore the fact that those convenient meals are far from being healthy. But then again, we just don’t give full attention because we are focus on one thing… Convenience!
With the Filipino urbanites’ fast-paced lifestyle, eating healthy meals has been the easy thing to sacrifice due to its inconvenience. Time-consuming, unappealing, and bland – this is the usual connotation behind hearty and nutritious meals. But what if healthy meals can now be accessible, scrumptious, and affordable?
This year, the spotlight gets brighter on health as Philippine FamilyMart CVS, Inc. launches its Health and Wellness line. Eating healthy has never been this convenient – no need to spare hours to prepare when it’s now just a few minutes away with exceptional ready-meals available straight from any Philippine FamilyMart store nationwide.
“We, at Philippine FamilyMart, ultimately want to make healthy quality food accessible to every Filipino,” shares Ed Paredes, Jr., General Manager for FamilyMart. “We hear the cry of our busy and on-the-go consumers for a one-stop place where they could get tasty and nourishing food that’s fresh, quick, and available.”
Beginning March 2015, FamilyMart beefs up its food selections with the introduction of its health and wellness line featuring ten dishes – ranging from rice meals, to pasta, and even classic snacks Filipinos will surely love. The new line boasts of the following dishes: Breakfast Chicken Rice, Breakfast Beef Rice, Smoked Fish Rice, Healthy Hainanese Chicken, Kimchi Beef Rice, Chicken Pomodoro, Spanish Sardine Arabiatta, Veggie Sticks with Hummus dip, classic taho, and mango taho – all packed with essential vitamins such as vitamins A, C, E, and other minerals.
“With our new Fresh n’ Lite product line, we hope to make it easier for Filipinos to create promising and feasible healthy lifestyles beginning with the food they eat without having to sacrifice great flavor,” adds Paredes. As FamilyMart offers fresh food choices to Filipinos, the opportunity to nourish oneself in a positive way has become more attainable. “Now, it’s just a matter of making a decision.”
With the growing demand for food options supporting heathy eating habits, that choice has become very simple,” concluded Paredes.
The FamilyMart Fresh n’ Lite line will be available starting March 25, 2015 at all Family Mart branches nationwide. For more information, please visit www.familymart.ph.
