Being good to your heart requires not just exercise but a good diet. Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil and the Philippine Heart Center (PHC) partnered, once again, to spread the gospel of delicious, heart-healthy food.

Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil brand ambassador, chef Donita Rose, and chef DJ Santos showed over a hundred guests in a recent Philippine Health Center seminar how to make ube champorado with fried danggit and rib-eye tapa dishes more heart-friendly using Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil.

“I believe we can enjoy good food while being healthy, specifically heart-healthy,” Donita told the staff and patients of PHC. “We just need to be mindful of the ingredients we use to make the food that we love.”

ACTRESS and chef Donita Rose and chef DJ Santos showed guests how to prepare heart-healthy dishes.

An ideal kitchen staple that possesses chock-full of benefits such as vitamin A for good eyesight and high amounts of Omega 3 and 6 that are good for the heart, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil is also the lowest in saturated or bad fat among vegetable oils and also has one of the highest heat points that makes it ideal for frying and especially for deep-frying.

During the event, a lecture was also given on how people can better manage their weight to maintain good health. Practical tips as well as uncommon ways to boost weight loss were also discussed.

“We are very happy to have advocates like chef Donita, chef DJ and, of course, the Philippine Heart Center as our partners in making the country a heart-healthy nation,” said Fly Ace Corp. Group Category manager for Oils Zen Prudentino. “We hope that our efforts will help Filipinos be more mindful of what they cook their food in, and that they are making better choices in the ingredients they buy, especially with their cooking oil.”

As a service to Philippine Heart Center patients, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil also gave free Nutrition Counselling from 9 to 13 July and provided Karada Scan Body Fat scales for use of the Nutrition Department to help the nutritionists give accurate information about an individual’s body weight, BMI Index, fat percentage and muscle composition, helping patients know their health status.
