Mikael Daez takes his food game to the next level


As a true blue gamer who used to go on 10-hour marathon computer sessions, playing DOTA 1 and going for “BEYOND GODLIKE!” killstreaks with his friends during his teenage years, Mikael Daez knows that gaming and food go hand-in-hand.

The model-turned-actor relates to how gamers often have to decide between food and play when one’s real-life energy bar runs low. By choosing to defeat other players, upgrade items, or clear quests to advance in the storyline, Daez admits to making poor food choices in the past, such as going for instant noodles or canned goods and rice.

A Gastronomical Feast in the comforts of your homes with Yin & Yum Fusion Cuisine

During these quarantine times, as much as we would love to go out to enjoy some great food in our favorite restaurants, would you feel safe and confident to dine out?  I for one, with my 5 year old son and my senior mother staying with us, is definitely not an option for us to dine out still.  

And with that we settle for our own cooked food, but there are days we just get tired of cooking and order for delivery.  But even with the many choices there is in the take out or delivery market, we hardly get to enjoy a great cooked delivery meal, which my mom would love to enjoy somehow.  Luckily my friend introduced me to Yin & Yum Fusion Cuisine.

Try these easy sandwich recipes to refuel you after working out

Baker John Carrot Pandesal 

Exercising at home has become part of our new normal and it’s probably one of the best things individuals can do for themselves. But after a hard session with one’s favorite fitness vlogger or virtual trainer, workout enthusiasts will definitely work up an appetite. Contrary to what people may think, it’s not always a bad idea to have a snack after working out. The key is having the right one.

Building muscle and replenishing energy usually depends more on one’s post-workout meal than their pre-workout one. What people eat for about an hour after their workout affects the results they get in the long run. A proper amount of carbs and protein are also essential for post-workout recovery. This can assist in rebuilding muscle and providing energy for more training sessions to come.
