(SPOT.ph) Helping everyone maintain those #healthy2015 goals is Cibbie Gonzales, who began peddling his signature line of affordable and fuss-free salads in a small stall just off Katipunan in 2013. In a little over a year, Go! Salads has opened a second branch in Eastwood, expanding the initial set of four salads to seven, and offering green smoothies.
The Katipunan branch stayed put, though. The small space only allotted for salads and a few extras: hummus and pita, a pair of drinks, and isomalt cupcakes that prove sweet things can come healthy, too.
Just this January 7, Go! Salads has widened its reach, extending its Katipunan outpost to an annex five steps away. This enlarged space offers those delectable green smoothies, and even sandwiches and tomato soup.
Testing out the smoothies...
Of his six smoothies, the Breakfast is a favorite: a concotion of apple, banana, cinnamon, chia seeds, rolled oats, coco sugar, soy milk and greens. The Guzzler is as indulgent as you can get, with its blend pf banana, peanut butter (sugar-free), spirulina, coco sugar, soy milk, and greens.
Cibbie once told us that some customers use the shakes as meal replacements (some contain up to 350 calories), but for something light, the Simple Mapple-mango, apple, coco sugar, and greens-is a mere 150 calories.
A tall glass of green smoothie costs P100.
The sandwiches, which use whole-wheat malunggay ciabatta bread, come in four varieties: Balsamic Mushroom Chickpea, Chicken Chorizo, Eggplant Tuna Curry, and Barbeque Chicken-for P140 each.
Salt Bakery, which provides the scrumptious sugar-free cupcakes, will also open this month in the same space.
