Lately, there has been a conscious effort to start living a healthy lifestyle. I am sure that you have friends that have started a particular diet or workout. A healthy lifestyle revolves around food and being physically active.

In our family, we try as much as we could to follow a healthy lifestyle. And I tell you... it is not easy. The fruits, vegetables, pork, beef and chicken that you find in the grocery and the public market, are not always 100% healthy. With the news of the African swine flu reaching our country, I admit, we have not eaten any pork dish in record breaking 3 full weeks. Better be safe than sorry.

Same with the fruits and veggies. My husband and I are big fans of salad. But again, we are not sure if the supply that we get are truly 100% organic. That we always end up washing them thoroughly just to be safe.

As a WiseMom, I am always on the lookout for safe sources of 100% organic and natural ingredient. That is why, weekends are always reserved for Sunday Market hoarding. Hoarding because we need to buy our week's supply.  

But what if there is a place where you can buy fresh, organic and natural ingredients for your home cooked meals + cafe for you to just relax and enjoy healthy meals prepared by experts - then we don't have to wait for Sunday markets!


I first heard of this store back in 2017. I visited their store in Wilson and I have seen a large supply of fresh, organic produce. They also have natural home and body products. 

Its owner Mr. Rman Lorezo, turns out is my kababayan from Malabon. I have been living in Quezon City for ten years now, but I still get excited when I meet people from my beloved hometown.

But I have not met Rman in person. We are facebook friends, but I have seen his health transformation through the years. He regularly posts photos of how he lost weight - because of his discipline in following a healthy lifestyle.

So when I finally met him in person at the opening of the EarthOrigins Marketplace + Cafe in Mother Ignacia Quezon City - I knew that this person knows what his business is all about. I consider him an expert as far as healthy eating is concerned. When you want to lose weight (safe way), know more about organic produce, juicing, healthy meals -- Rman is definitely the person you should talk to! 

EarthOrigins Marketplace+Cafe Mother Ignacia QC

After the first branch in Wilson, Earth Origins opened in Westgate Alabang. Southern peeps get to enjoy the cafe as well as the marketplace. But as I have always told Rman "papano naman ang mga taga North"?  Good thing, Earth Origins Marketplace + Cafe is now here in Quezon City... in Mother Ignacia to be exact!


The Quezon City branch (just like the Westgate Alabang branch) is a one stop organic retail shop for fresh produce, organic meats, pantry essentials and other grocery items. And there is a cafe where you can enjoy your healthy organic food.

Some of the bestsellers are: 

Korean Style Fried Cauliflower (or KFC)

Black Bun Grass-fed Classic Beef Slider 

Chicken fingers (pinacolada dip for added twist)

Rman shared, that all of their vegetables and produce are fresh and sourced out daily in organic farms. All of their meats (pork, chicken and beef) are 100% organically grown and free from hormones and antibiotics, and it is free range. Their pork comes from Mindanao, in Gensan and South Cotabato and before they are butchered, there is a detox process for 2 weeks, to get rid of anything bad they have eaten since they are roam around freely.

They use activated charcoal bun, that helps your body to detoxify. They use unbleached flour, that they can only store for 3 months, because it has no preservatives. 


Earth Origins is introducing new dishes - and I am so lucky to be among the first ones to have a taste.

Whole Fried Chicken with their own sauce (yes they make their own sauces)  
Bellychon with Thyme Dip
Pico de Gallo with Chimichurri Sauce
Seafood Paella with sprouted brown rice, wild caught shrimp,
mussels, clams, squid, 
annatto oil, quail egg,
homemade organic vegetable broth, 
sea salt, organic herbs and spices
Mushroom Paella with sprouted brown rice, three kinds of mushroom,
chichasroom, annatto oil, quail egg, homemade organic vegetable broth,
sea salt, organic herbs and spices

What a healthy, yummy spread for your Noche Buena right?

there is a cafe, a market, and this cozy nook - will definitely
come back to Earth Origins Mother Ignacia :)
