Positively Better with Jeunesse

A lot of women are not really excited to have their monthly period because of the discomfort it brings, the mood swings, weird cravings and worst, the painful dysmenorrhea.  I have a regular menstruation so that means every month I get to experience all of these (thank God I only suffer from minor menstrual cramps). I guess I have tried most of the sanitary napkins and panty liners available in the local market.  I can say that a good cotton pad should give the best comfort and protection to you.  And I found it in Jeunesse Anion napkins and liners.

I have heard of the benefits of Anion before but I didn’t pay much attention to it until recently.  Just a couple of months back I suffered from heavy bleeding after I had my miscarriage.  I told my self to be cautious with the pads that I will be using (as women we need to value our health and hygiene).  When I first tried the Jeunesse products I was really impressed.  I tell you I’m in love with their panty liners.  At the end of the day, the liner is still intact and what I really liked is that there is no smell at all. That is the power of Anion because it eliminates unwanted odor.  I learned that each Jeunesse napkin has a special anion chip that helps prevent bacteria during menstruation, helps reduce feminine discomfort, and helps fight against vaginal irritations and infections.  Isn’t it amazing?  No wonder majority of the users of Jeunesse products rated the napkins and liners as excellent and highly satisfying.

Another thing that I like about Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners is that each pad is individually wrapped and sealed all over to ensure that the napkin or liner never gets in contact with dirt and bacteria. The pad may appear thin in size but the absorbency power is really good.  It has quick-absorbing properties that sip away moisture and wetness in an instant, leaving you feeling fresh and dry all the time.

With Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners, I can say that red days are now stress free and positively better.

P.S. You can buy Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins and Liners at Watsons or you can order online at Lazada.  A pack of eight costs Php40.00 to Php80.00.

Chef Donita Rose’s Ginataang Tuna with Luyang Dilaw

General Santos City, the country’s Tuna Capital, just celebrated the much-anticipated 19th Tuna Festival (September 1-5, 2017).  It is an annual celebration that features different events and activities focusing on the tuna industry of the city as well as the promotion of peace in Mindanao.  One of the highlights of the festival is the different tuna dishes being prepared for everyone to enjoy.  Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil ambassador celebrity chef Donita Rose shared a heart-healthy recipe to the Generals last September 2 at KCC Mall Convention Center.

Chef Donita Rose’s Ginataang Tuna with Luyang Dilaw (servings: 6)

2 tbsp. salt in 2 cups of water

2 tbsp. Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil

1/2 kg Tuna Fillet, boneless

4 bay leaves

2 medium white onion, chopped

4 medium shallots, chopped

2 tbsp. garlic, minced

4 tbsp. ginger, grated

4 tbsp. turmeric, grated

2 cups unsweetened coconut milk

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, divided

4 tablespoons honey, divided in two portions

6 Green Chili Fingers, whole

Leeks, long strips for serving (soak in ice water to make it curl)

Cilantro for serving

Salt and Pepper to taste

Cooked rice for serving


  1. Soak the tuna fillet in the brine solution for 10 minutes then drain on paper towels.
  2. Season tuna with a little salt and pepper then in a grill pan over high heat.
  3. Add 1 tbsp. Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil. Make sure to cook the fillet to medium rare only or until the center is still red. Set aside.
  4. In another large pan over medium heat, add another tbsp. of Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil.
  5. Sauté onions, shallots, garlic and ginger and cook. Stir often until golden brown and very fragrant.
  6. Add the turmeric and vinegar before throwing in the chili fingers and the bay leaves.
  7. Bring to a boil and cook until liquid is reduced by about one-third.
  8. Add the coconut milk and stir a little before adding the tuna to the sauce. Reduce the sauce again to a thick consistency.
  9. Mix in 2 tbsp. of honey to balance acidity and more salt and pepper as needed. Transfer onto a serving plate then drizzle with the remaining honey.
  10. Top with a lot of leeks and cilantro bunched together and serve with hot rice! Adobo can be made 3 days ahead and can also be put in the freezer.
Everyone loved the delicious tuna dish that Chef Donita prepared and what I really liked is that it is a healthy meal.  She used Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil which contains Vitamin A and is packed with good fats like Omega 3 and 6 (I learned that compared to other brands, the Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil has the lowest amount of saturated fats). It is an oil that is highly versatile and imparts a neutral taste to almost all types of dishes.  Aside from being heart-healthy, Jolly Heart Mate Canola Oil is also budget-friendly (perfect for moms like me). You can purchase it at a very affordable price and is available at different supermarkets.
Chef Donita will be touring around the country to promote more heart-healthy cooking ideas. Her next stop this October will be in Vigan for the Raniag Festival.  Watch out for her!
