It’s almost the end of the first month of the year but it’s never too late to start your diet and live a healthier lifestyle. Gone are the days when diet dish options were very limited, props to savvy entrepreneurs who are reinventing healthy dishes and making them more appetizing, while promising to help you achieve your healthy-eating and fitness goals.
Couple Chingkay Alix Omega-Floro and Mark Wayne Noel Floro continue to reach their goal of empowering everyone to live a healthy lifestyle, one counted-calorie meal at a time by expanding Lowcal Salad + Wraps, and opening a one-stop destination to eat, chill and shop for guiltless food and drink items.
“It is our aim for Lowcal to become a daily healthy habit of every Cebuano and soon of every Filipino,” Chingkay shared.
Lowcal Market, nestled at the Century Plaza Hotel on Juana Osmeña St., Cebu City, widens its menu and now offers expertly prepared, restaurant quality, and of course, calorie-counted dishes that are less than 400 calories which include beef salpicao with mushroom, pan-grilled pork chops (called Godfather Chops), honey garlic chicken, and chicken callos—all served with choice of side dish: brown rice, mix veggies, sweet mashed potato, soft tortilla or wheat baguette, wheat crust pizza and pasta.
Beside its front door are well-curated healthy groceries like pasta, chips, sauces, milk and coffee, to name a few.
It also offers a wine and cheese combo, if you want to unwind and pour yourself a glass of wine.
“While we would have wanted to feel the growth of a business under better circumstances and not during a pandemic, the past few months was an opportunity for us to expand because there was a surge of people wanting to eat healthier. Sometimes though, healthy food can be expensive. But we believe this is why we’ve felt the strong support because we offer delicious, affordable, healthy food,” said Chingkay.
The spacious cafe and deli can accommodate only 15 guests at a time for now as part of its safety precautions. Its woody interior with tropical-inspired murals will give you that beach-vibe, putting you in that relaxed and calm state.
Lowcal Market is open every day from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
