Veggie Festival 2019 Hosted By Maxicare

“Healthy living” to most people means both physical and mental health are in balance or functioning well together in a person. In many instances, physical and mental health are closely linked, so that a change (good or bad) in one directly affects the other.

“Eating shouldn’t be merely about satisfying your hunger because the diet you choose affects every aspect of your health, including the environment. It’s about time to eat healthy, live healthy, and take control of your health.

As obesity and unhealthy lifestyles continue to grow into a global problem, Maxicare Healthcare Corporation, the country’s leading healthcare provider, arranged its first-ever outdoor festival – Maxicare Veggie Fest 2019, a project in support of the company’s Chairman of the Board Mr. Roberto “Bobby” Macasaet Jr’s personal advocacy for healthier lifestyles.

“One of the easiest ways to start your journey to living a healthy life is by eating a plant-based diet, which is why we are proud ti be holding the Maxicare Veggie Fest. Today we invite everyone to live their best by boosting not only their physical health, but also their mental. It’s like eating your favorites, but without the guilt”. said Macasaet whose main objective is to improve health and wellness, focusing on plant-based nutrition.

Maxicare encourages members and non-members alike to incorporate a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and starches, good fats, and lean proteins into their diet so they can live longer and feel stronger by inspiring others to fight disease and eat healthy.
