Eating well is a great way to get more done in the busy life we live. If you are already eating well, there are some new foods and places you can explore that will make your day better in some way. If you are not eating well, here are some ways to help improve your health and wellbeing.
By shopping in supermarkets that have healthy options, or finding alternatives at nearby shops and markets, you will discover new foods that are good for you. Many of these stores offer great discounts so it is worth checking them out.
At food-related events such as hawker feasts and cook-off competitions, you can find new things to try. These events are a great way to learn about what tastes best to YOU!
There are many ways to eat if you are not satisfied with your normal lifestyle choices.
Buy fresh produce
While shopping for groceries, you should try to stick to local fruits and vegetables. Most supermarkets in Singapore are located nearby so you do not have to go too far.
Most large supermarkets have a produce department where you can find fresh vegetables and fruits. In fact, some do not even called produce departments!
These are very useful as they can be stored for a few days before using so you can save some money by not buying them packaged. In addition, many of them are delivered monthly via Fresh Direct, which is a great way to save money.
Local fruits and vegetables are usually cheaper than their imported counterparts. This is due to the fact that companies do not have to pay high import taxes on them, which result in lower prices for the consumer. The quality of the fruit or vegetable also stays better when it is imported instead of locally grown.
Shop at different locations for groceries
For groceries, you have two options. You can either go to one of the major supermarkets, namely Asia Market, Sunwayvale Hypermarket, Thomson Reuters Groceries or One Stop Shop located at every neighbourhood.
Or you can visit one of the many single-storey grocery shops like Apartment Quest Singapore. Most of them offer free delivery!
The second option is to go to one of the many farmer’s markets held throughout the city almost every other week. Many are free and held at a central location so there is no need to search for a market spot.
Either way, going to both supermarkets and farmer’s markets will cost you less than buying your groceries in one shot than from just two sources.
Create your own salad bowl
Having a salad can be a little bit of a hassle in Singapore. There are so many salads to choose from and you have to dilemma between freshness and convenience.
Luckily, Eat Healthy Singapore has created several salad bowls that are different every time. All of these are based on quality ingredients and put together beautifully!
Some of these include the Thai basil chicken bowl, the crispy pork belly bowl, the roasted seaweed bowl, and the black pepper potatoes. Each one is unique in taste and texture, making them very interesting to explore.
These salad bowls make choosing what you want for lunch or dinner easy.
Make smoothie bowls for breakfast
If you are looking for a quick and refreshing breakfast, you can make a smoothie bowl. A smoothie bowl can be made with many ingredients, so there is no limitation to what you can choose to eat.
Mostly, they have few ingredients that are required for making a healthy smoothie bowl: rice cereal, dried fruit, vegetables, and sauce. You can make your own or buy from the market.
Many recipes call for this as their first meal of the day. Most people start eating it around 7 or 8am and keep eating until noon or noonish when the appetite finally stopscoming in. You can have it any time of the day as long as you have enough food to feed yourself and your hungry side!
Make sure to use fresh ingredients as well as you do not want your smoothie bowl to taste dry or sour.
Make pasta salads
If you are looking for a new salad recipe to try, make a batch of pasta salad. It is an easy-to-make food that you will love.
Whip up some homemade mayonnaise and add some shredded carrots, celery, and/or cucumber. Then top it with some grilled chicken or pork chop andOperation[|endoftext|]delicious!
Make the dressing from scratch and pour it onto the lettuce leaves. If you are not sure how to make it look perfect, try using a handheld mirror to do so.
Add some chopped tomatoes and French beans if wanted. Make sure to cook them thoroughly so they are soft enough to mix with the salad ingredients.
Let your finished salad sit at least half an hour before eating to let the flavours develop and enjoy the crispness of the vegetables and chicken.
Bring a salad bowl for lunch
If you are attending an event or live in a city with a big commercial market, it’s time to bring a lunch box. There are many Singaporean food options that are healthy, and they have a variety of restaurants that offer their dishes in the lunch box.
Many of these restaurants offer free or reduced-price meals on weekdays from 12-2PM and 5-8PM. If you want to order your food before 12:30PM, you can schedule your lunch time at the restaurant.
Most of these restaurants do not open until 1 or 2 PM so plan your event timing accordingly. Early bird specials often run off by 1 PM so be aware of that.
Be prepared to explain what kind of bowl you want and whether or not you want vegetables included! Many offer greens like lettuce, carrots, chicken breast, and pasta so those who do not eat meat can take advantage of these.
Share your food with friends
If you want to share your food with your friends, you can do so in several ways. You can make a supermarket or restaurant list together, you can search up eateries in Google, or you can go to farmers’ markets together.
In most cases, supermarkets and restaurants offer their foods to customers without any problem. However, if a farmer offers their product to the public, then you may have a chance to learn more about it and meet them if they are selling out of the product.
Put food aside for later
At some point during your bulking phase, it’s recommended to eat a small meal or two to replenish your energy and help you sleep better at night. This is due to the long hours you can spend in the gym and in the kitchen during the week!
The majority of people don’t have much time to prepare their meals while at the gym, so having a little food eaten later in the day is highly appreciated. It also helps to give your body a bit of rest as you sleep better due to the quality of the food you got your body.
Many foods have unique benefits that can be consumed while dieting. Some examples are wild plants and vegetables, fats and fats with protein, and products that contain aromas or flavors. It’s best to get into a routine of eating foods with unique properties so you do not miss any of these.
Note: The term ‘dieting’ has come under debate as many find it restrictive.
