Healthy eating is a good idea during the festive season. Fortunately, it is not too difficult to find healthy eats in restaurants and cafes in Singapore. We went for lunch recently at Cedele Bakery Kitchen in Raffles City and had an affordable and tasty yet healthy meal. The Cedele Wellness Menu offers wholesome dishes that look good and taste good too.Continue reading →
Real Food Orchard Central is a cafe set up by the people of the organic grocery shop Real Food Grocer. The vegetarian cafe serves food with “No processed ingredients, No Artificial Preservatives and No Trans-fat”. We had visited their outlet at South Beach Singapore and thought that it was quite a nice place (read about our visit here). We recently stopped by at the Orchard Road outlet and it looks even better!
The famous South Beach Diet focuses on good carbohydrates, healthy fats and plenty of lean protein as a way to lose weight and improve health. We don’t have the willpower to follow a strict diet plan even though we could do with some weight loss. The closest thing to the South Beach Diet for us is to head to Real Food at South Beach. In this restaurant run by people who believe in serving good, ethical and healthy food, we can get a variety of meat-free dishes prepared with ingredients devoid of preservatives and other questionable additives.
An eye catching SCMP headline may have announced that “Beer is good for your health” but a meat free meal is still the more conventional component of a healthy eating plan. 蔬品轩 D’life Signature is a new vegetarian restaurant in Parkway Parade which should appeal to the health-conscious food lovers. It is established by the owners of D’Life Bistro that is known for their reasonably priced meat-free menu.
Tiann’s Bakery and Cafe is a modern cafe situated along Seng Poh Road in Tiong Bahru, one of the best food enclaves in Singapore. Tiann’s is a place for healthy eating. Gluten free, no additives, no added refined sugar, no wheat, no trans fat etc. They also have no wifi, so that diners can “enjoy your 100% real good company or say hi to the good looking stranger”. Across the road from Tiann’s Bakery is the famous Tiong Bahru market which boasts a food centre with many food stalls which produce good food but with less emphasis on healthy eating. We thought that we should eat on the healthy side for a change.
