Though we have to focus on eating well and keeping in shape these days, it’s a little challenging to go out and do some exercise. Of course, some people might enjoy eating their usual diet and make up for it by exercising at home, but one can consume healthier, more organic foods.
Here’s a list of local organic foodstuffs to purchase online!
Chia seeds are a great source of manganese, phosphorus, and vitamins B1, B2, and B3. But be warned: chia seeds act like sponges and enlarge when they meet water, and of course, your body is 70% water; take care when eating them! The recommended dosage of chia seeds is 20 grams or about 1.5 tablespoons, twice a day. They’re also available at Lazada in the same 250g, 500g, and 1kg packs. They’re available at Shopee as well, in the said amounts.
Don’t laugh at these little beans! It turns out that they have lots of minerals and protein — twice as much protein as rice!

The Superfood Grocer’s Shopee store has white and tricolor quinoa available in 250g, 500g, and 1kg bags.
Mmm berries! Goji berries’ main benefits are that they help with eyesight and protect you from cancer. Anyone can eat them, but goji berries might interfere with medications for blood pressure, diabetes, and others, so you’ll need to speak to your doctor before consuming them. You can pick from Food Stock’s Shopee or Lazada stores.
Dried dates are perfect if you want a healthy snack rich in nutrients, fiber, and antioxidants. But, don’t eat too many, as they contain a lot of sugar. Well, at least they’re great for a sugar substitute if processed according to the appropriate recipes. Get yours in 250g, 500g, or 1kg bags at Shopee!
These dried fruits are popular as a snack, but did you know that they can reduce heart disease risk? Regular consumption of raisins can also help your bowels flush toxins out of your body. Careful not to overeat, though! Raisins still have as many calories as their non-dried counterparts. Food Stock’s Raisins are available at Lazada in 250g, 500g, and 1kg packs. Shopee also has them in the same packs.

Raw Pistachio Kernels
Pistachios have fiber, minerals, anti-inflammatory properties and contain antioxidants. They can also reduce hunger, making you feel like you don’t need another serving of food!

Pecan nuts have minerals that help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Instant Matcha Powder
Matcha has lots of antioxidants and can help prevent cancer. In addition, green tea helps one lose weight, so this can help you out if you’re on a diet!
