Running for Jamba Juice

Saturday, 12 November 2011  |  Healthy Food + Recipes

Jamba Juice is in Manila! This is great news for us Pinoys as we become more health conscious. But, it’s even better news for us runners since fruit shakes and juices are great ways for us to nourish our bodies.


The kiddos and I dropped by for the VIP opening of Jamba Juice last Thursday at the new area of Bonifacio High Street (across the street from R.O.X.) Met my sister, Janice, and her kids there, too.

– with my sister and our kids –

We spotted celebrities like Isabel Oli and Raya Mananquil. But, it was more interesting to bump into even more athletes like Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan and daughters Ella and baby Solana, Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Leah Caringal, Itong Torres, Gene Tamesis, Nich Bautista, and, of course, owners Jim and Mavis Fuentebella.

– Isabel Oli looked stunning –

I had a tough time choosing my order from all the fruit drinks, but finally decided on Fruit Frenzy as my shake for that night. I hoped the nutrient infusion into my system wouldn’t just make me run faster at this Sunday’s race but fend off jetlag, too!

– Jamba Juice staff worked fast to fill the long list of orders –

I seriously believe that Jamba Juice and I are a match made in heaven. My close friends know that I have a deep obsession with peanut butter and oatmeal. So, it’s my goal for the next few weeks to try these aside from the shakes:

1) Steel Cut Oatmeal – topped with sugar crumble?! How good can this be? Drool!


2) Peanut Butter Moo’d – Awesome way to get our protein requirements for the day eh? (Oh I hope this is good because I’ve been dreaming about it already)


Hope to see you guys there.  Looks like the kids and I will be there often!
