Love your Heart, Start your day with GV Michel – Oatmeal of Australia!

Saturday, August 08, 2015


Living a healthy lifestyle connotes proper eating and right exercise that should be done solemnly and religiously. Yeah, albeit, I am one of those people who loves to be healthy and yet not being consistent on achieving it. Junk foods, street foods, and soft drinks are some of my food and drink intake which, of course, not healthy! I’m glad that there are agencies and products that seriously spread awareness of healthy living my giving them options and what to dos so one’s meal may not sound boring or dull. Well, something healthy and still can boost your appetite.

With that said, GV Michel brings the goodness of Australian oats to Philippines to promote “Wellness of Filipino” families.

Who eats breakfast? Hmmm… I did when I was in morning shift which as early as 5am-2pm. Me and my colleagues had this routine to eat breakfast at around 7 or 8am and talked anything under the sun from work-related issue to love life to family to business to future and even on.. hmmm…never mind. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why? It is the first meal we partake to break the fast from last night’s meal, which may last anywhere from eight to 10 hours. It is also important because it prepares us for the demands of work, the body needs food that is packed with lots of energy and nutrients to get us going for the day ahead. And make us even more productive.

And did you know that in many countries around the world, cereal is an important part of breakfast, be it in the form of cornflakes, sugary treats or oatmeal. However, this is not so in Asian countries, like the Philippines, where rice is a daily staple. Well, I can’t live without rice and a meal wouldn’t complete for me without rice – from breakfast to lunch to dinner. On which, too much of it could lead us to serious ailments and diseases. Ouch! Well, to give you a hint, say hello to diabetes and hypertension and obesity.

Meanwhile, nutrition experts have been promoting the benefits of cereal, particularly oatmeal. A staple in Western countries, oatmeal provides energy, supports healthy digestion, and may help lower blood cholesterol. It is also a good source of protein and is a significant source of fiber. All these benefits have led many to include it in their meals as part of a healthy diet. There are a number of oatmeal brands in the market today, but one brand has in mind the health and wellness of Filipino families – GV Michel Oatmeal of Australia.

GV Michel Oatmeal of Australia is a premium Australian brand that uses high-quality oats from Australia in all its products, such as organic instant oats, rolled oats, quick cooking and instant oats. It is distributed in the Philippines by Dong-A Pharma Phils., Inc. (DPPI), which also distributes Bacchus energy drink and Queen Bakery products.
