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.

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.

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.”

What an amazing difference Judith made to her life in just 2 months. The weight loss is irrelevant compared to having more energy, mental clarity, confidence, happiness and to be now fighting disease. Go Primed and make the rest of your life the best of your life.

“Thank you, Chad. I can’t thank you enough for spotting me at the 1st Aspin Race last Oct 10 at Camp Aguinaldo. I am constantly being asked and always eager to share the Primed for your Life nutrition. Those who believe are now enjoying the health benefits as well and they feel great too. All the best to your and your family! See you after Christmas!”

“Loving & enjoying the health benefits of a PRIMED LIFESTYLE!

* Reduced Blood Sugar
* Lower Blood Pressure
* Body inflammation – GONE!
* Normalized my sleeping schedule
* Deep Sleep
* More Energized
* Improved mood / behavior
* No feeling of food deprivation
* No hunger anxiety attacks
* Inch loss & weight loss even without the exercise YET – my favorite part smile emoticon

Thank you, Chad Davis! I could not ask for a better Wellness Coach.”

Even Judith’s beautiful dog Cookie will have more energy and longevity with the Primed Lifestyle. Woof woof Cookie.

Please, do not feed your pets (yourself or your family) “food” they cannot digest properly, or that causes inflammation due to their blood sugar spiking and/or oxidative stress effects (grains, sugar, veg/seed oil. soy, corn and low-fat anything). More and more cats and dogs are becoming diseased with the diabetic condition unfortunately.

“Chad Davis, thank you for being such a wonderful Wellness Coach. My shots of Primed Centrifuged Organic Virgin Coconut Oil paired with cold water and some pistachio nuts surprisingly sustained me all throughout the monstrous 42K stretch and my tummy was not as bloated compared to previous Corregidor races. Thank you for your generosity of sharing your Primed For Your Life Nutrition to me and to our Soleus Family. We had a great time during your talk at the island.”

From Judith

So proud to share my “MY BEFORE & AFTER” photos!!! My priority goal for going PRIMED. I’m on my way to my desired BP.

Coming from Stage 2, working on reducing my DIA digits so I will no longer be Stage 1 Hypertensive. Soon!

Chad Davis, I’m so happy!

I had the best fun sharing my Primed for your Life Lifestyle knowledge with my Soleus Philippines teammates.

Thank you for arranging for my Primed talk Judith. I loved sharing with the team. Please see here 30 benefits you can receive after going Primed.

Soleus seminar

The fact they appreciated it so much fills me with pride. The fact that it will assist them and their families gives me more pleasure than any money could give me. I love my job.

Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee with Coconut Milk

I love a nice Primed Coffee. It is either a double espresso or a Primed Iced Coffee in the Philippines heat.

I even made sure to have a Primed Iced Coffee waiting for me in my fridge after my Malaysian Ironman and Melbourne Ironman. This great drink served a dual purpose as: (a) A drink to look forward to after the race; and (b) To aid my recovery due to the great fats in the coconut milk.

Ingredients 1: Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee

Iced  Cinnamon Coffee ingredients

6 teaspoons of coffee
1/2 glass of home-made coconut milk
2 glasses of water
ground cinnamon spice
ice cubes

We use cinnamon sticks bought from an Indian grocery shop along Jupiter Street and then grind them in our grinder. You can also buy the cinnamon shaker from the spice rack where you normally shop.

It is Very Easy to Make your Own Coconut Milk

See how easy here.

Ingredients 2: Iced Coffee with Coconut Sugar

Iced Coffee ingredients

6 teaspoons of coffee
1/2 glass of coconut milk
2 glasses of water
coconut sugar to taste (or quality honey) – both optional only
ice cubes


Pretty simple of course but I dissolve my coffee in a little hot water, add ice cubes, add coconut milk, add cinnamon (or coconut sugar or both) and add water. Then stir and serve. Easy, yet delicious and nutritious.

It is an excellent accompaniment for a Primed breakfast.

Iced Coffee Breakfast

Eggs and bacon are always a favorite in the morning with my Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

Iced coffee brunch pic

Equally fabulous is chicken thigh topped with tomato and grilled cheese on a bed of chili zucchini “noddles” with my Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee.

The health benefits of Coconut Milk are very long and far reaching.


The health Benefits of Cinnamon are Similarly Extensive


Coconut Oil Rocks Too

I often have a shot of Virgin Coconut Oil before having my Primed Iced Coffee. If I have my coffee hot then I put the shot into my black coffee with a splash of coconut milk.

Friendly advice: Do not add coconut oil to your Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee. It becomes solid and is not easy or pleasant to drink cold. I have made this very mistake before. Twice!

Coconut liquid breakfast

Having a delicious Primed Cinnamon Iced Coffee is very filling and satisfying and can even serve as a meal replacement for breakfast if you wanted to slowly ease yourself into Regular Intelligent Fasting and experience the unique health benefits associated with it.

Some other great reasons to fast include the way it helps regulate your insulin as explained in this fabulous graph provided by Washington Dr. Ted Naiman from Burn Fat Not Sugar.
