Hai Chix & Steaks is a Cool Restaurant with Excellent Food, Service and Ambiance. Live Music on Wednesdays Night rocks.

My cool Primed friend Ferdie Agustin is the owner, chef and entertainer at Hai Chix & Steaks in Ortigas.

Ferdie went Primed in December last year and has since lost 20 pounds and GAINED a lot of energy.

“Hi mate!
The challenge right now is what to do with the extra energy… so much to do with more energy but with very limited time.” 😊

Mariano Home-cooked Specialties in Iligan – a fabulous restaurant by a Cool Primed Family

This is easily my favorite restaurant in Iligan City. Actually, my favorite in the whole of Mindanao.

The Ambiance

Love the full glass windows, mirrors and square tables where all people can talk easily to each other.

There is even a beautiful outdoor dining area. this is where the doctors were for a meeting and then my Primed Seminar which they enjoyed. They also loved the Primed Mariano Spaghetti Squash.

This restaurant is cozy and relaxing.

The Food

When you have fabulous chef owners in Doi Mariano and Avril Mariano you cannot go wrong. Four years in business is testimony to their quality.

Here’s the delicious 4-Course Primed menu they created.

I proudly (and nervously) was in charge of dessert. I told Dr. Victor and his doctor friends that if it is good then I made it. However, if they didn’t like it then Avril prepared it. Haha. They loved it. You beauty.

Mariano Mango Mousse3

The Primed Mango Mousse was a winner. Especially when Avril’s chef added grated dark chocolate on top.

The Service

Avril Mariano is a charismatic and wonderful host. With an in-depth background in hospitality at places such as Makati Shangri-La I was not surprised that Avril’s staff were well-trained, profession and super friendly.

What I also loved is that their service crew are so sharp that they too have already started their Primed journey. That rocks and shows excellent intelligence.

The Guests

The people of Iligan City are very friendly. They are going Primed too and will be healtheir and happier. They will live longer, better lives.

Iligan top docs

The picture above is of some of the best pediatricians in the City. They are great docs with open-minds and were extremely receptive to the Primed lifestyle and protocols. They “got it” and are even applying the principles in their practices already.

Children cooking

The best thing we can do for our children is help them to maintain a stable blood glucose level within a normal range. Good health then follows. Baby steps to a healthier family/self include getting rid of fast food, avoiding teeth ruining soft drinks/juices/sports drinks, ditching cheap carbs (bread, pasta & noodles) in favor of nutrient dense vegetables and healthy fats and engaging a wellness coach to guide you. #Eatrealfood#HelpYourChildren #LowerCarbHigherHealthyFats#primedforyourlife

Primed food is real food to optimally nourish your brain and body. Grains, sugar, soy, veg oil and other highly processed stuff hurts you and your family. Nourish them with love and real food. #breadisdead#grainsequalsugar #sugarequalsinflammation#inflammationleadstodisease#100stafflost500kilosin80days #primedforyourlife#teachyourchildren #justeatrealfood #iligancity#marianoshomecookedspecialties

The Final Words from Juliet the morning after our Primed Mariano 4-course Dinner

“I woke up with so much energy today. I went walking, got some sunshine and started eating real food this morning. My 3 children are also very receptive to the change.”

Avril said: “Chad, you indeed helped another family to be healthy today. Thank you.”
