Sheraton Hotel's S-Kitchen is all too aware of the stigma against healthy food that it's neither affordable nor delicious. That's why they've made it their mission to change your mind. While launching their 300-square meter Sheraton Farm, partnering with Nurture Farmacy, and supporting their local farmers in Amadeo, Tagaytay, they're launching favorite comfort food dishes with a twist. All their nostalgic new dishes use plant-based meat!

A big reason why Sheraton decided to go for this holistic approach is to spread awareness about the environmental impact of industrial animal farming which is exacerbating global warming. Industrial animal farming has a big carbon footprint and often contributes to deforestation.

Even the cocktails served at the bar are "green." To go zero-waste, they use fruit skins to infuse flavor into their alcohol.

In their own way, S-Kitchen wants to give its customers another option. They're promoting the return to vegetable farming by way of serving up delicious dishes that fill you with the hope that it won't be so hard to reduce your meat consumption.

"We want to eliminate the stigma that healthy eating, or vegetables, are dull. So we go back to basics, switching meat on well-loved foods to plant-based but still with the same enticing flavors," says Executive Chef Kiko Santiago.

Their plant-based meat alternative is sourced from Nurture Farmacy. It's cholesterol-free, low-fat, highly nutritious soy protein. If you're doubting how much it can mimic meat, you need to try it first! They use it in mainstream comfort food recipes that can really change your mind.
