Friends of PurelyB were recently treated to an intimate Christmas lunch and it was a soiree to remember! With the theme “Shhh… Don’t Tell Them It’s Healthy” guests enjoyed a four-course lunch with a healthy yet indulgent menu, complete with recipe demos.
40 guests, which included local health-conscious celebrities and personalities, enjoyed the special lunch menu co-created by PurelyB contributors, founding members and also the folks at The Good Co. – the lovely venue in Bangsar where the soiree was held. Guests included healthy lifestyle-advocating celebrities Sazzy Falak, Marion Caunter, Deborah Henry and more. Even local fitness celebrities Nana Al Haleq, Hansen Lee, Talitha Tan, Angeline Ong & Nicholas Mak, and Wellness TV show hosts Jojo Struys & Kavita Kaur were in attendance. One lucky PurelyB member, Cyiara, was selected to also join in on the soiree fun!
The lunch began with Danielle Graham, model and recently published author of “On The Table At Home” cookbook, demonstrating the creation of her delicious Roast Pumpkin, Bean and Rocket salad which was the first course served, followed by entrees of Eggplant Roulade Stuffed With Baby Spinach, Tomato Roasted Pepper and Basil Soup, Truffle Mushroom Tart and “Daging Tarik” (pulled ‘meat’ made from mushrooms!) in a cone from the folks at The Good Co.
PurelyB's Vegan Carbonara Main Dish
The main dish which was a Vegan Carbonara Angel Hair Pasta by PurelyB’s Fitness and Nutrition Expert Marissa Parry proved to be a hit with the guests as many were amazed that such a creamy dish did not actually contain any cream – a definite treat for those who are lactose-intolerant. Levy Li of The Good Co was also on hand to demonstrate the popular The Good Co’s Acai Bowl, which was served as part of the dessert spread. Other items on the dessert menu included Raw Chocolate Truffles (created by our Co-founder & CEO Jesrina Arshad), Vegan Pear and Cranberry Crumble, Mango Sago and Peanut Butter Slice courtesy of Sweet Benefits; a PurelyB partner and healthy online desserts catering service.

Apart from enjoying the healthy spread, guests also managed to get some of their Christmas shopping done at the specially set-up Christmas Gifts corner. From natural skincare to active lifestyle apparel to healthy snacks, a variety of products promoting healthier lifestyles were up for grabs.
It was a good time had by all filled with good food and mingling, but it didn’t end there. Guests left with their very own Christmas stocking filled with goodies such as ingredients to make their very own version of our vegan pear & cranberry crumble along with a recipe card courtesy of PurelyB, exclusive offerings off PurelyB’s Online Store, complimentary personal training sessions from Be Urban Wellness, relaxation treatment from energy spa and also a boxful of (healthy!) raw chocolate truffles to share with family and friends.

With the aim of promoting healthier options and lifestyles, and demonstrating that healthy can also be as fun and delicious as the sinful variety, PurelyB’s Christmas soiree had guests leaving happy and more aware of the wonderful and healthier lifestyle choices available to them, without having to sacrifice on fun and the pleasures that life has to offer!
From all of us at PurelyB – Merry Christmas & A Very Happy New Year!
