还记得数月前大人秘访的这一篇：“果”腹又满足：无负担美食新体验 吗？可别以为大人吃吃写写分享了文章后就此罢休，对于新山所有努力认真想推广好事物兼且秉着事必躬亲态度的店家，大人我当然得身体力行二话不说支持啊！于是乎大笔一挥就当了会员也签了 Friends & Fig 的《30天冷压蔬果汁优惠配套》，这确实是自费自动自发想要让身体更健康而签下的配套，比起日常的吃喝玩乐，性价比高多了。或许看官们会觉得果汁其实能自己在家鲜榨，为什么需要这么大费周章签配套呢？除了因为人类天生就有些惰性之外，一台性能好的冷压果汁机动辄马币数千元，外加如果家中人数不多，一次过要采购多种蔬菜水果做出营养丰富的冷压果汁一点都不简单啊！
看了大人叨叨絮絮写了这么多，若看官们尚未到过 Friends & Fig，且让大人为你点亮通往健康道路的明灯吧！刚度过一周岁的店家就位于新柔长堤高架桥下的老店区，身处精品酒店隔邻的 Friends & Fig，正是一家以 “JUICE . RAW . CLEANSE” 为饮食走向的健康餐厅。
The days of being served up uninspiring greens and a glass of squeezed juice when we request for something healthy are long gone, and good riddance too. Now there’s no need to compromise on the quality or flavour of our food when it comes to treating our body well, and no excuse not to eat, drink and be healthy!
Everything at Friends & Fig is done the healthy way. Spotting a raw, utilitarian appeal that is in line with their “JUICE . RAW . CLEANSE” approach towards wellness, this cosy cafe promises to reinvent raw food to bring you quality juices through their cold-pressed technology that produces no heat and minimises oxidation, giving us only pure unadulterated juices that will leave us feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and energised with the highest level of concentrated nutrients provided naturally. With a simple aim of offering natural foods to its consumers, Friends & Fig makes a good starting point for diners looking to switch to a healthier lifestyle, while also offering detox programmes, health consultation services, as well as organic foods and supplements.
之所以会选择 Friends & Fig 的冷压蔬果汁全因大人觉得她们家的配搭真的很有份量，加上是由全亚洲首位华人果汁营养师专为店家而设计的口味，因此能确认自己喝下肚的果汁确实乃身体所需要的营养 (大人并非独沽一味，店家会根据个人身体状况而建议，每一种口味的口感层次皆非常丰富，毫无稀释或不新鲜的异味，一喝就知与众不同)。在为期30天的排毒期内，每两三天就得到店领取最新鲜的冷压蔬果汁，对于所摄取的每日营养更是步步为营，天天有不同新鲜果菜汁的滋润果然不同凡响，肠道消化能力也比之前更顺畅，真可谓「体内环保，排空烦恼」。 30天的配套完成后，如果仍旧有心有力为自己的健康好好规划，也可尝试更深度的《3天蔬果汁排毒断食 3 Days Detox & Juice Fast Plan》及《5天蔬果汁深层排肝胆石 Gall Bladder & Liver Cleanse》，毕竟大人真的担忧「书到用时方恨少，病了才知健康好啊！」
Since health is wealth, it’s natural that we decided to invest in our own well-being having been deprived of rest, exercise and proper diets. Fortunately, not all healthy foods are green, mean and downright tasteless, so there’s no need to compromise on the quality or flavour of our food. Hence we decided to “secretly” take up the “Thirsty for 30” challenge for our time-starved, nutrient-deprived lives.
Thanks to the cold pressed juices formulated by the nutritionist from Friends & Fig, these tasteful blends did more than just cleanse and detox, but also successfully helped reduce our appetite and food cravings to keep our excess in check. With sheer grit and determination, the regular routine to pick up our juices every 2-3 days, coupled with the discipline to avoid caffeine, alcohol, sugary drinks and anything processed during the process certainly looks like paying off. After all, a detox should feel like an indulgence, not hard work, isn’t it? LOL!
If you want to fast track your health, give your body a break from the usual sinful indulgence and stock up on fresh organic produce and a few of these vegan and gluten-free snacks instead. If you’re new to detox, a 3-day cleanse program can provide a physical and psychological jump start while for the regulars, the 5-day regimen once a month is ideal to help you build on these healthful habits that your gall bladder and liver will feel eternally grateful.
Ready, get set, cleanse…
3天蔬果汁排毒断食计划 / 5天蔬果汁深层排肝胆石计划
3-Day Detox & Juice Fast Plan & 5-Day Gall Bladder & Liver Cleanse
除了《30天冷压蔬果汁优惠配套》，Friends & Fig 与其他冷压果汁店最大的分别即是这两项由全亚洲首位华人果汁营养师所设计的断食排毒疗程 –《3天蔬果汁排毒断食计划》& 《5天蔬果汁深层排肝胆石计划》。看官们若有意进行断食，需在三天前后各别减少固体食物的进食量，让身体逐渐适应断食以免不胜负荷。
比起只能以清水或特定水果进行的断食疗法，Friends & Fig 的《3天蔬果汁排毒断食计划》是以每日6瓶的各式蔬果汁 (根据健康状况配给，3天共18瓶) 再搭配营养师的指定营养品而成，身体不仅可摄取各类维生素与营养，对于初次尝试断食者而言，不论是在心理或是生理上更加容易适应。此外，看官们也可携带体检报告予店家的专属营养师后再作适当的饮食调理。
《5天蔬果汁深层排肝胆石计划》同样也以每日6瓶的各式蔬果汁 (根据健康状况配给，5天共30瓶) 再搭配营养师的指定营养品而成，除了排毒日数增加至5天外，也需额外摄取冷压特级初榨橄榄油 (Extra Virgin Organic Cold Pressed Olive Oil)。长年累月堆积在身体里的毒素秽物若能以健康的方式大量排出体外，重启肝胆净化运作提高免疫力、代谢率与自愈力，大人真想立即喊喊口号「肝胆相照，健康长存！」。欲想了解详情，今日就亲临 Friends & Fig 让亲切的负责人 Christine 为您分析讲解 (也可携带体检报告)。
Besides our earlier “Thirsty for 30” challenge, the 3-Day Detox & Juice Fast Plan is the ideal way to experience a raw juice cleanse for the first time. Embark on a journey to a healthier and happier you, with 6 bottles of juices to replace a day’s diet for the next 3 days, it’s really that simple! Taking significant consideration in deciding what goes into each juice bottle, every ingredient at Friends & Fig has been carefully selected for their nutritious offerings, vitamins and taste and specially formulated by working with a qualified independent natural juice therapist (CMA) UK will provide you with a gentle and nurturing, yet highly effective cleanse and leave you feeling awesome!
Advanced cleansers can also reap optimal benefits with the 5-consecutive-day program formulated for those in search of a deeper and more comprehensive cleanse. Challenging but rewarding, the 5-Day Gall Bladder & Liver Cleanse is your super ticket to instil discipline to keep your gut clean and health in check. Enjoy five fantastic days of rich, refreshing detoxification and immunity building power as you sip at deliciously cold-pressed juices and relish in improved metabolism, natural weight loss benefits and fresh, delicious flavour your body has been craving for so long! Coupled with the additional intake of Extra Virgin Organic Cold Pressed Olive Oil, you are well on your way to rediscovering a powerful, healthy and vibrant new you.
The old adage, “Good things come to those who wait,” is absolutely true when it comes to 100% pure cold-pressed juice and can retain their nutritional potency for up to 72 hours, so
鹰嘴豆蔬菜汤 Chickpeas Vege Soup
这道鹰嘴豆蔬菜汤 (Chickpeas Vege Soup, RM12) 浅尝一口后就立即打翻了蔬菜汤不如肉汤美味的既定印象。外观酷似咖啡拉花的蔬菜汤，是将鹰嘴豆、洋葱、韭葱、马铃薯、萝卜等稍微拌炒后再制成浓汤，「这是店家每周特备的新食谱，非常惊艳好喝的一道蔬菜汤！口味类似常吃的薯泥棕酱，配上烤得香脆的全麦面包与奇亞籽，丰富营养不在话下，口感浓郁不显厚重。鹰嘴豆向有“豆中之王”之美称，膳食纤维含量非常高，属低糖食物，在中东地区、印度、非洲等区域多作开胃菜之用。」
We almost mistaken our appetiser for a vegan coffee with latte art served in a bowl but the Chickpeas Vege Soup was really warming, tasty and doesn’t ‘feel vegetarian’, probably because of the hearty ingredients of chickpeas, onion, leek, potato and carrot, as well as the wholemeal bread with whole chia seeds added for extra nutrients and flavours. This intensely vegan soup, which is hugely popular in the Middle East and India, tastes so much more decadent than it actually is, that between the flavourful but light broth and the abundance of greens, this soup certainly warms us up without weighing us down.
健康沙拉 Salad Bowl & Wich Box
想要尝试《3天蔬果汁排毒断食计划》& 《5天蔬果汁深层排肝胆石计划》的看官们，还记得大人刚刚的善意提点吗？若要进行断食需在三天前后个别减少固体食物的进食量，让身体逐渐适应以免不胜负荷。这署名 W3 (RM15) 就是店家推出的五种健康沙拉之一。W1 – W5 的沙拉由营养师细心搭配计算，道道各有乾坤 （配料有熏鸭、三文鱼、鸡胸或全蔬菜类），一系列的沙拉都标上了所含卡路里，非常适合轻食一族。「这一份以三文鱼及鳄梨为主，卡路里含量仅为297 kcal，若不想日日在外进食煎炸油炒的午餐，或许可考虑与同事们一起向店家预订一周五天的各式沙拉，互相激励彼此迈向健康生活😊 。」
Looking for something more healthy to go along with your detox plan without losing the plot (and your appetite)? Perhaps you could go with their Salad Bowl and Wich Box. With one of the widest selections of ingredients and homemade dressings to choose from, W1-W5 provides an array of great variety (smoked duck, smoked salmon, chicken breast or mixed greens) to be spoilt for choice. Our personal pick comes with generous portions of smoked salmon, black olive, red radish, Roma tomato, Japanese cucumber, chia seed, avocado and other mixed greens, topped off with their homemade trio citrus dressing for a refreshing blend. Fulfilling and tasty without any feelings of guilt of loading additional calories (297 kcal), this is a hearty meal by itself, keeping us feeling full and satiated throughout the day.
Pesto Zoodle Noodle (Gluten-free)
若您身边有患上乳糜泻、小麦过敏或非乳糜泻麸质不耐症的朋友，这道无麸质的蔬菜面还真是肠胃对麦醇溶蛋白过敏者们的一大佳音！「Friends & Fig 的无麸质面条真正做到了零麸质！因为她们家采用了意大利青瓜 (Zucchini) 切丝作为面条，搭以真空低温烹调的鸡胸、菌菇、小番茄等，再拌以意大利青蒜酱，单看所有食材就知这是道热量低、口味清爽宜人的轻食啦！每尝一口面条相等于吃进了足量的食蔬，毫无过多的精致调味料，完全健康无负担。大人需先声明，这道意大利青蒜酱蔬菜面口味较一般意式酱面清淡许多，若觉平日饮食过为油腻而有心调整自身口味的看官们，不妨一试让身体得以暂时缓解调理。」
Now zoodles seem to have crazily taken off recently, and the best part? They are gluten-free too! For those of you not clued in, zoodles are noodles made out of zucchini and various veggies instead of the heavy and carb loaded traditional paste, brilliant right? The zucchini noodles and pesto were well-mixed until combined and topped with some protein-rich, low-fat chicken breast, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms. Simple does it!
海鲜意式面食 Seafood Aglio Olio
强调饮食均衡的 Friends & Fig，当然也有大人逢到必点的海鲜意式面食 (Seafood Aglio Olio, RM22) ，总是铺满了硕大的海鲜，每一回皆不曾让大人失望！「这里的 Seafood Aglio Olio 并没有一般的厚重蒜米味，不油不腻之余反而多了些微辣的口感，层次有力。看来 Friends & Fig 的美食宗旨果然就是要让饕客吃完后完全没有罪恶感啊！」
The Seafood Aglio Olio has been a must order in all of our visits. The texture of the spaghetti was al dente; firm to the bite with just about the right amount of garlic and olive oil that still packs a punch of oceanic flavours, and served with squids and a generous serving of prawns that somehow taste great and guilt-free!
帕尼尼意大利鸡肉三文治 Chicken Panini
以 Farmer Bread 搭配真空低温烹调的鸡胸肉，这道帕尼尼意大利鸡肉三文治 (Chicken Panini) 端上桌后份量还真是惊人！「与一般三文治相较，Friends & Fig 将酱汁的使用量大幅降低，因此饕客们更能尝出面包里的麦香与鸡胸肉的原汁原味！常常需奔波在外的工作人士或许可考虑带上一份充当午餐，既健康又饱足。」
After a full day of sitting behind your computer screen, not many people have the appetite to eat a heavy meal. Friends & Fig provides a viable option for those who would prefer a light meal which would keep them going for the remaining working hours. With a fresh selection of sandwiches such as their delicious and wholesome Chicken Panini to pile on daily, Friends & Fig offers a hearty one-dish meal packed full of essential nutrients at affordable prices.
自从数月前与之相逢后，大人对于Friends & Fig 的存在总带有既欣慰又珍惜的情感，毕竟推行健康餐饮概念的难度比起推荐一般美食飨宴高出数倍，没有一丝耐心与坚持都办不到。衷心希望 Friends & Fig 能像店名中的无花果般，拥有坚强的生命力而又生机无限😊 。
【大人小分享】店家为了能让更多人接触健康餐点的观念，因此店内的所有饮料与食物皆有外送服务 (最低消费为RM30，服务运费视地区各异，一天前拨电预定最佳，Catering 服务请洽店家查询) 。
After all the travel and food reviews to bring you some of the what’s hot and what’s not in town, our bodies are screaming for a detox routine and return to normality just to be home for a while (though our minds has a different plan and are already planning the next “find dining” trip…arghhh). To be completely honest, blogging after the latest craze over real healthy taste or generally picking popularity over simplicity is always an easier route, but considering a vast majority of Malaysians don’t come close to consuming their daily recommended servings of fruits and greens, the cold-pressed juice is not a bad option!
PS: To bring forth the Friends & Fig’s culture to JB and beyond, external catering and home delivery options are also available, with a minimum spend of RM30. With this easy, natural cleanse and detox programs now readily accessible, our body will be ready for spring in no time at all.
