For those who think that organic equals boring, a visit to the Cebu Food Fun Festival last weekend would have completely changed your mind!
The event featured all the incredible flavors and tastes of the products of different beautiful farmer markets. Various booths were set up and filled with people to whom business echoes health and passion. One of their many discussions was the many benefits of wheatgrass; did you know that it’s not only a potent detoxifier, but also a complete protein that helps with weight loss? It also slows down the aging process and clears the skin effectively. For only 100 pesos, you can buy a wheatgrass growing set to make your very own wheatgrass juice at home.
Kids who attended the event were absolutely hypnotized by the bees and how they were making honey. They also loved tasting all the delicious foods offered by the passionate farmers, from pesto to fruits. There were vegetable juices, bread, cookies, and power bars as well. Many people also checked out the bio beauty products stands, which featured a night cream that has a texture as perfect as a mousse!
Finally, there were activities for the kids, such as arts and craft, stories and music. The Cebu Food Fun Festival indeed had enough activities and stands to please the whole family! Here’s a summary of how the fruitful event went:
- DAY_1: Rondalla music for Festival Opening, detox juicing, farming business, smokeless-costless stove, sustainable architectural designs
