Quaker Oats has been there for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the most recognizable brands in the world and greatly recommended by doctors. When one thinks of a superfood, oatmeal comes to mind as the most easily accessible and affordable. Of greatest value are the numerous health benefits we can derive from it and here are some of them:
FIBER – Quaker Oats is packed with natural fiber that can help with one’s digestion and make you lose weight.
PROTEIN – Did you know that one packet of instant oatmeal contains three grams of protein? We can increase the protein composition for better health by adding milk and fruits to the equation. It’s a no-brainer way to have a balanced-diet. And of course, if we have sufficient protein, we will have enough energy to go through our numerous activities for the day
BETA-GLUCAN – this soluble fiber has been shown to lower cholesterol and blood sugar while helping the growth of good bacteria in the gut. What’s not to love?
For its latest campaign with the hashtag #QuakerDeliciousMornings, Quaker Oats Philippines tapped top artist and vlogger Alex Gonzaga to do a live Breakfast Show at the BGC Arts Center with her special guest, fellow celebrity Luis Manzano. It was a hugely entertaining show since Alex G did a production number of her hot song ‘Tipints’ and a lively exchange with Luis. It was more of a sparring session actually but it ended up funny because of the two stars’ chemistry.
Nothing could be perfect than these two celebs to imbibe the gospel of health to young people.
Luis admitted that he is a morning person and spending time at the gym is his first activity for the day. He used to not eat before lifting weights but soon found out that “fasting” did not give him the needed strength so now he makes it a point to eat something healthy like a bowl of Quaker Oats original flavor.
Alex revealed that she’s the opposite of Luis since she’s a night owl. She’s able to sleep as late as 3am and settles for a relaxing massage if she wants to call it a night earlier than that. She said she wakes up because she needs to go to work and that’s why she’s rushing most of the time. This is the reason why she needs to eat breakfast while on the road. Quaker Cups On-The-Go or those small packets in different flavors are very handy for Alex.
Quaker Oats come in delicious flavors such as Chocolate, Chocolate with Milk, Banana and Honey, and Original with Milk. The small packets available in convenience stores are priced as low as ten pesos.
