This is a result of the widespread conversion of bedrooms into temporary workplaces in the present work-from-home (WFH) environment.

Find the Best Fit for Your Family’s Summer Sun Protection at The Goodwill Market


The sun’s out, and the party has begun! It's summer, and the weather is ideal for enjoying outdoor activities like going to the beach or pool to cool down, or taking a nature walk after spending too much time at home.

Four exciting, yummy, nutritious and easy-to-cook recipes for your next summer outing salu-salo

Summer is arguably the favorite season for many. It’s the time of the year when Filipinos enjoy trips to the beach, long vacations with friends and family, or simply more time relaxing at home. All of these could only mean one thing—summer is the season for eating. Yum! 

What’s a summer outing without equally exciting food? After all, a huge part of bonding during summer activities is the salu-salo. While grilled fish and hotdogs are staple favorites during summer outings, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation has curated recipes that you can try on your next trip to make your salu-salo experience more fun and memorable.

 

These four recipes are not only delicious and easy to prepare, they are less in sodium too, so it’s good for you and the family.  

        Simple Lemon Herb Chicken

Rich in protein and great for quick cooking, this recipe is perfect especially when you’ve got kids (you can’t go wrong with chicken when youngsters are around). Quick and easy, you’ll be done in less than 30 minutes with a savory dish made yummy with AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning.  Check out the full recipe here : Simple Lemon Herb Chicken Recipe

        Thai Pork Barbecue 

A must-try recipe to level up your barbecue experience. Not only is it easy to prepare, BBQs are ideal for outdoor cooking and get-togethers because they aren’t messy to eat and people can just grab a stick or two before diving back into the water again. Full recipe here: Thai Pork Barbecue Recipe



        Kalabasang Okoy na may Hipon

If you’re into seafood, here’s a recipe that should excite you. The regular okoy already tastes great, but adding this twist should bring the dish to another level. With the kalabasa providing a layer of crunchiness and sweetness, this simple dish should be a nice addition to your summer-ific menu. Kalabasa which contains Vitamin A and beta-carotene not only helps maintain healthy eyesight but also helps strengthen immunity.All you need to do is mix AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning to the batter, stir in beaten eggs, kalabasa, bean sprouts and shrimps. Mix well, and fry. Voila! You’re done. Learn the full recipe: Kalabasang Okoy na may Hipon Recipe

        Lumpiang Baboy at Carrots

Amongst all Lumpia variants, Lumpiang Baboy at Carrots, or what we commonly known as Lumpiang Shanghai, will always be a crowd favorite. In fact, this dish is almost always present during birthdays, fiestas, or even during summer outings. They’re easy to make, carry around, and don’t spoil easily. You can pre-make the lumpia at home (or even cook it there). Try this less sodium version with AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning, which helps turn this rather ordinary food item into a bestseller on your summer outings. Click here for the full recipe: Lumpiang Baboy at Carrots Recipe

 

In its pursuit of helping Filipinos achieve a healthier lifestyle without sacrificing their hearty diet, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation (APC) Group recently launched its BawAsin® or Bawasan ang Asin campaign, an effort that encourages consumers to reduce their sodium intake without sacrificing the deliciousness of their meals. Ajinomoto has created a BawAsin® section in its official website. It provides information that reducing sodium in a diet is not difficult or will result in bland food. The site features 100 less sodium creative recipes that help individuals enjoy meals that contain less sodium yet enjoy the same deliciousness. According to the World Health Organization, a “reduced salt intake can blunt the rise in blood pressure that occurs with age and reduce the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease events and congestive heart failure.”

 

The BawAsin® or Bawasan ang Asin campaign is a reflection of the brand’s “Eat Well, Live Well” promise, which aims to help families improve their health by providing ways on how to prepare healthy and delicious meals.
