Filipino foods are rich, flavorful and savory dishes that satisfy everyone’s palate. The smell indicates comfort synonymous to home. The texture is bursting with different contradictions enough to excite the tongue. And the combination of the three speaks perfection that can keep everyone locked to their seats at the dining table.
All of these make the cuisine unforgettable yet calorie-rich. That’s when it becomes a little problematic for people who watch their diet. Filipino dishes suddenly appear like irresistible minions from hell. And on days when the craving for these dishes creep in, the thought of getting fat always gets in the way.
For those who miss the Filipino flavor but are afraid of consuming more calories, APU has made a way to make it a lot healthier and forgiving for those who are on a diet. Meet APU’s salad entries, broken down to each calorie count.
