“It’s good to know that I can indulge in something I love to eat without feeling any guilt,” one of my friends said before finally bringing the fork of pasta into her mouth after few seconds of staring at it in the air.
Across the table, her face distorted in delight as she started to chew. Her lips were shiny. I pointed to the residues of tiny green leaves at the corner of her mouth, but she restrained herself from smiling so as not to reveal her teeth, which I was certain were dotted with green flakes.
On her plate was a unique pasta made healthful by organic malunggay (moringa) leaves, parmesan cheese, and other spices blended in generous amount of extra virgin olive oil.
Malunggay is one of the vegetables that you can find, along with other organically grown herbs and medicinal plants, in the garden where this small cafe’ is situated.
Since 2009, Good Earth Farms and Foods has been serving health-conscious and adventurous foodies with quality foods that are not only palatable to the taste, but also nutritious.
If subscribing to a good diet forms part of your New Year’s resolution to maintain a healthy body and build a strong resistance, then Good Earth Farms and Foods will definitely be a worthwhile destination.
Aside from Malunggay Pasta, here are other appetizing foods available on the menu.
These healthy cuisines were made even more special with a glass of cold and refreshing yogurt-based Pineapple Lemon Grass and Malunggay smoothie. This unforgettable combination gives you an initial taste of malunggay and an after-taste of lemon. The distinct flavors blended deliciously! Other must-try smoothies include Pineapple Basil and Tanglad (Lemon Grass) Lemonade.
Coffee was not part of their menu, but you can try their caffeine-free tea instead.
We were the only diners during that afternoon. All of us were so impressed and satisfied with the quality and quantity of the foods that we left all our plates clean. The time at which the orders were served was also commendable, not to mention that the prices were budget-friendly.
