I hope I can update the blog at least a few times a week despite the busy sched ahead! I'll be sharing about my trip to Puerto Princesa, Palawan, soon, but for now, here are some of my favorite crunchy munchies that are as healthy as they are delightful.
Thai Crunch Salad
California Pizza Kitchen, TriNoma (see the list of other branches here)
Underneath those crispy rice sticks are shredded Napa cabbage, slices of chilled-grilled chicken breast, julienne cucumbers, edamame, and crispy wontons, all tossed in lime-cilantro and Thai peanut dressing which make everything even tastier. I loved the texture of all the ingredients combined and the extra crunch from the rice sticks. The serving isn't big enough to be eaten as a meal, but it's filling enough as a snack.
Oriental Chicken Salad
Don Henrico's, West Avenue (see the list of other branches here)
The fried noodles, crisp lettuce, carrots, peanuts, almonds, and sesame seeds mixed with the dressing make this salad a very crunchy concoction! The chicken is already quite piquant, so it's better to go easy on the dressing.
The SultaNut Muesli
The Muesli-Granola Kitchen and Bakeshop, Mercato Centrale
The SultaNut is a muesli mix that's great with plain yogurt, oatmeal, or alone as a healthy midday snack. Got it from The Muesli-Granola Kitchen and Bakeshop stall at Mercato Centrale. Be sure to try their yummy granola bars as well!
