EasyGrocery: A novel and trouble-free way to grocery shopping

FB_IMG_1507864313926.jpg

Are you sick and tired of falling in line for hours at the supermarket cashier line and dealing with the traffic and jam-packed parking lot?.. Or having a hard time squeezing your grocery time in your super busy schedule?

Worry no more! You can now do your groceries online in the comfort of your home, while bonding with your family, while having fun with your friends, or while finishing your deadline at work.
This is made possible by EasyGrocery, the latest mobile app which allows consumers to purchase their grocery items from the app and have them delivered to their preferred address within 60 minutes committed time.

EasyGrocery aims to cater to the average Filipinos who find grocery shopping a daunting but necessary task.
“We currently live in a fast-paced lifestyle where convenience and time-savings are the public’s
priority requirement in their day-to-day activities. It is from this reality that the idea by which
EasyGrocery was conceptualized.”, said EasyGrocery’s President & CEO Eugene Leoncio.

I have tried using it and I love it.  I was bonding then with my friends but need to do grocery errands. So I just open the app and create my list. I chose my city and preferred supermarket.  You can also opt to either by delivery or by pick up at your chosen supermarket and I opted for delivery.  It caters 2 types of payment system – COD and credit card.  You can see at the bottom of the screen how much your items worth so you can still watch your budget – that’s if you have good control… hahaha.  Upon submitting your list, you will receive a message that your orders are in the process.  You can also monitor each one of the product you chose if it is already in the basket. Your runner will contact you if your picked product is not available. In my case, I ordered frozen salmon belly strip but it’s out of stock at that time. My runner called me to tell me that it’s not available so I told her to get smoked bangus instead. She asked me what brand and I told her to get me what is better and it turns out she gave me a delicious smoked bangus! She has a good taste huh.

The app will also notify you if your grocery items are ready for pick up or already in transit.  The EasyGrocery app is like Grab or Uber app equiped with GPS mobile tracker that you can monitor your rider’s location.  Their riders carries insulated container that keeps your items intact and fresh.

EasyGrocery only charges a flat rate of 100 pesos for the service fee per order and
another 100 pesos for the delivery fee. See, it’s still more affordable compared to commuting and dealing with the unnecessary expenses of grocery shopping!
EasyGrocery is now available in its three pilot areas of Makati, Parañaque and Taguig, and hopes to add more cities in the coming months.

The app works for both iOS and Android phones and is now available for download from the App Store and Google Play.

Old Orchard Cranberry’s Tips on How to Take Care of your Kidneys

logo

Old Orchard Cranberry Healthy Balance

Kidneys are two bean-shaped multi-functional powerhouse organs of the urinary system. They expel waste from the body, balance body fluids, release hormones that regulate blood pressure, and control the production of red blood cells.

With all those jobs to be done, our kidneys deserve attention and care. The National Kidney and Transplant Institute has reported that Kidney Failure is the 7th leading cause of death among Filipinos and close to an estimate of 30,000-40,000 patients yearly undergo dialysis. Kidney disease often cannot be cured, but fortunately, it can be prevented early by taking care of our urinary tract. With the aid of Old Orchard’s resident US nutritionist, Amy Bragagnini, MS, RD, CSO, here are some tips that can help you prevent urinary tract and kidney infections.

  1. Eating Healthy and Exercising Regularly.

                Diabetes and high blood pressure cause most of the kidney problems. When blood pressure is high, blood vessels stretch to allow blood to flow more easily. The stretching eventually injures and weakens the blood vessels, impairing their ability to clean blood properly, including those in the kidneys. That’s why it is always best to follow healthy eating habits such as limiting intake of sodium (2,500 mg) and sugar, and controlling weight and blood pressure through exercise. Watchful eaters should also consider the addition of calcium-filled food (milk, yogurt, calcium fortified cereals, etc.) to their diet. However, Bragagnini notes that one must not mistake calcium supplements as an alternative to the natural food sources, as it could result to kidney stone formation when taken in excess.

  1. Giving up on Smoking.

If you’re smoking, you should quit now as smoking slows the flow of blood to the kidneys. This results to an impairment to function properly which increases risks of kidney cancer by 50%.

  1. Following Directions for Over-the-Counter Medications.

                Your kidneys can only take so much. Overdoing your medications create high toxins level in the body, posing great burden on the kidneys. So as much as possible, limit yourself from too much chemical exposure. If you really need medications, consult with your physician and follow the instructions well.

  1. Having them Screened Regularly.

                If diabetes or high blood pressure is in the genes, it is always ideal for you to have your kidneys tested regularly as part of your routine check-up. A creatinine level higher than 1.2 for women and 1.4 for men is a sure sign of a kidney problem.

  1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

“Fluid intake is another important step to help lower risk of kidney stone formation and urinary tract infection”, stresses Bragagini. Healthy individuals who aren’t suffering present kidney diseases should consume enough water and other fluids of at least 2 liters of fluid per day. Consuming enough fluid helps dilute the urine and helps flush toxins. Bragagini prescribes that pairing a meal with Cranberry juice in moderation is a great way to reduce instances  of irritation in the urinary tract. In fact, Cranberries are power packed fruits that are rich in Vitamin C and a source of Flavonoid and Phytonutrient contents called Hippuric Acid and Proanthocyanidin. These power duo components prevent UTI-causing bacteria from sticking into the wall of the bladder and urinary tract preventing further damage to the kidneys.

Bragagini closes by saying that the most important thing you can do to keep your kidneys safe is to take care of your overall body to reduce your chances of developing diseases that put a strain on your kidneys. Coupled by prevention, it is also aided by continuously doing consultation with your physician or dietitian.

Old Orchard can be enjoyed in three flavors: Cranberry, Apple Cranberry, and Cranberry Raspberry. There are also diabetic-friendly variants that contain 75 percent less sugar and only has 20 calories: Healthy Balance Cranberry and Healthy Balance Apple Cranberry.
