Since Funfare published the story about Cheloy Ignacio’s raw-food diet several issues ago, readers have been inquiring how they could get in touch with Cheloy. For their and your information, you can call landlines 687-1121 and 409-3529, or cellphone numbers 0915-2959582 and 0923-5330941, or e-mail at rawfood_phils [at] yahoo [dot] com.
With the increasing demands for her raw-food diet, Cheloy has decided to conduct a lecture series and food demonstrations to share whatever knowledge she learned in the US, right at the penthouse of Parc Royale Condominium (along Julia Vargas Ave., Ortigas Center). Each class is limited to 50 students, first-come-first-served basis. (Note: Call any of the numbers listed above for the entrance fee.)
A certified raw-food chef (she took up a course under a famous raw-food specialist in the US), Cheloy has prepared two sets of programs. One is a lecture that includes relevant topics for the complete understanding of the raw-food diet and the actual preparation of various recipes. “This will make students realize that raw-food diet is a healthy alternative and easy to prepare,” said Cheloy.
The second is the detoxification program which includes topics with the complete understanding of the raw-food diet and how to detoxify the body. It’s a combination of lectures and recipe preparation that allows students to know the needed results of the cleansing process. “This program is designed for certain health situations where instant change in lifestyle is required,” said Cheloy.
Incidentally, Cheloy used to be the Ensaymada Queen who invented the yummy Supermelt (she sold the rights to it after she decided to do away with sugar, salt and oil in her diet). Now, she’s starting to be known as the Queen of Green.
