Food fads are really visible nowadays with the use of social media. With this trend around, another innovative healthy indulgence that I bumped thru Instagram lately is the Healthy Monsters that offers Salad in a Jar.
Healthy Monsters gained strong following online nowadays that spread the buzz of freshly made products. Since I am in the process of eating healthy, giving time to read those sharing, I am convince to ring those order.
I have tried their four salads namely :
- Asian Salad – got cabbage, carrots, corn and roasted sesame dressing
- Fiesta Salad – have unique “quinoa” in it, a replacement for rice.
- Walnut Salad – almonds, walnuts, Parmesan cheese, tomato, spinach, romaine and strawberry vinaigrette.
- Chia Salad – romaine, cheese, cucumber , singkamas, tomato, arugula and chia dressing.
For chia and walnut salad, the dressings are separated to keep it fresh and crispy preventing to make those veggies saggy.
I love how they packed their salad in a jar which not only made it healthy to eat but pleasing to the eyes that is so colorful to look as possible it could be.
Here is the idea which I personally get this write-ups to Ms. Nikki herself of Healthy Monsters:
The basic idea when packing salads in jars is to start with the heaviest and most non-absorbent ingredients while the dressing on the bottom of the jar. This would work up through the lighter ingredients until end up with the salad greens themselves. With this method, the delicate greens will be well-protected from the dressing until one is ready to eat it.
Innovative di bah?
Anyway, I got to taste them all especially in the morning storing it in our fridge. Actually, I forgot the other one because it was covered up infront by water container – the Fiesta Salad. Surprisingly after 4 days, still the veggies were crispy.
Ever since, I heart salad and overall, I enjoyed feasting it every morning especially breakfast as I found their salad not that ordinary especially the dressings. To tell you honestly, I am bit tired of Italian, Caesar or Ranch varieties.
This is my desk as I growled for salad in my workplace not the usual peanuts and chips scattered around for munching. It satisfies my appetite for hours as I feed myself with nutrients.
Their salad is not also boring meaning not using the same ingredients over and over again. LOL! Why? They play around with different content to make it extra-ordinary to eat. There are also no brown edges on the lettuce and no wilted leaves.
Is P 190.00 soo much for the price?
I computed it if I will be buying the same thing. Romania and cherry tomatoes which they use for their salad is the most costly one. The dressings also if bought in bottles will also cost between P 200 – 300. For me, its affordable.
Usually, if I will reward myself for a meal outside, it would cost me P 200 to P 300 if ever I don’t have time to cook for my packed meal.
Again, I am not in a diet. I am in the process of living to be strong, vibrant and healthy at the same time. If the fresh leafy greens blended together as going back to the plants can give those rigorous lifestyle I want, I am in.
Hopefully, Healthy Monsters would continue sharing those quality products promoting also quality lifestyle.
Again the price is 190php for a 720ml jar. A minimum order of 6 jars is required for delivery which last for 5 days.
Delivery places: San Juan, Pasig, Ortigas, Mandaluyong, Makati, Fort.
