Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who Brunch

Towards the end of summer, I was whisked away by Mothers Who Brunch to the Healthy Mommas Retreat at Cintai Corito’s Garden. Mothers Who Brunch is a community established by mommy bloggers Michelle Aventajado ( and Sabrina Cristobal-Go ( Mothers Who Brunch brings together fellow moms to share, inspire, and feast.

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchFirst thing on the agenda was Kombucha. Prior to this retreat, I’ve never heard of Kombucha. Kombucha is actually fermented tea.

Kombucha has several health benefits which include boosting your metabolism, energy level, and immune system. It’s also a natural detoxifier.

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchHonestly, I never thought I would crave for hummus!

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchSuperfoods like spirulina, malunggay, cacao nibs, etc. used in the recipes were provided by The Superfood Grocer.

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchI made my own veggie wraps with hummus and a mix of all the yummy dressings. I can munch on these all day.

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchBecause mommies need to be pretty too, our Healthy Mommas Retreat had a beauty portion by Up & Up, a distributor of Korean beauty products.

Healthy Mommas Retreat by Mothers Who BrunchWe all got a box of beauty goodies from, featuring their star products Up & Up Skin Refining & Priming Serum and Spider Puff Cleanser. The serum INSTANTLY lifts sagging skin. You can apply it to the undereye area, cheeks, or even the neck. You can see the improvement in minutes. The Spider Puff Cleanser is supposedly an all-in-one product that cleanses, tones, and moisturizes the face. I’ll post reviews in the coming days.

alt="HealthyTwin sisters Stacy and Danah Gutierrez of talked about maintaining a positive body image. It was very empowering and uplifting because really, women have so much more to offer other than their physical appearance!

We all had a sumptuous lunch and soothing foot massages after the activities. Thank you so much Mothers Who Brunch — Mish and Sabrina — for having me!

    Cintai Coritos is so picturesque. I want to bring my family there soon. I like hummus too, it was only last month when I first tasted it and I liked it. Na curious ako dyan sa Kombucha, where to buy?
