Last Friday, I stopped at the Shangrila Plaza, just to spend a few hours away from traffic and see what's new in the shops. While I had plans to check out the sales for a new pair of pants, I ended up beguiled by the new set up of Healthy Options in the mall. They've added freezer space and expanded their selection of frozen vegetables and microwaveable meals. It didn't take me too long to choose what I wanted, EDAMAME! I love them, like green peanuts, and so healthy (a half cup has 4 grams of fiber, high in protein, and low in calories). The store has several options: half a kilo of shelled soy beans, half a kilo of unshelled soy beans, and several varieties mixed with vegetables. I took a bag of the shelled and unshelled. The bags cost P212 each, a little more than what you'd pay in Japanese groceries where a half kilo of edamame costs P160.
Along with the soy beans, I picked up a bag of ground flax seed, tahini, and a bar of Dagoba organic dark chocolate. The store is still under renovation, so expect a larger stage for healthy food products soon.
