FISH & CO. | PERI PERI PRAWNS| With a little bit of thought and creativity, indulgence can be part of a healthy diet! A popular favourite, Fish & Co’s Peri Peri Prawns consist of fresh, succulent prawns served with spicy sauce and a side of mashed potatoes.

SOUP RESTAURANT | EARTHEN BOWL WITH CHICKEN AND SAMSUI GINGER SAUCE | This bowl of hearty goodness is proof something good for you can taste good, too. Imagine a bite of this plump chicken thigh steamed to perfection and topped with Soup Restaurant's signature Samsui ginger sauce. The healthier option of brown rice fully absorbs the chicken's juicy goodness while enriching the flavour on your palate with its nutty taste. And for a dose of fibre, lightly blanched cai xin (Chinese broccoli) makes your greens.
SWENSEN'S | PESTO SALMON | Salmon is a wonderful source of lean protein and is rich in heart-healthy fish oils.

Grilled to tender perfection and served with special homemade pesto cream sauce, buttery mashed potatoes and vegetables of the day, this is the epitome of a truly indulgent yet deliciously wholesome treat.
DIAN XIAO ER | HERBAL DUCK RICE | Who says you have to sacrifice rich flavours when you opt to eat healthy? This version of sliced roast duck rice offers well-portioned duck meat, the skin grilled to a crisp but still retaining its tenderness and served on a bed of fragrant white rice. This combination is topped with a specially herbal sauce which enhances the flavor of every bite.
LOVING HUT | NONYA LAKSA (Vegan) | You will probably be surprised to see this option on a list of 500 calorie meals. But the ever able Loving Hut did some creative cooking and switched the laksa gravy mix with 50 per cent organic soymilk and 50 per cent coconut milk. The result remains a rich, flavourful, slightly reduced broth that retains the same spicy kick. The dish is garnished with shredded cucumbers and a dash of lime for a refreshing twist to the meal.
MCDONALDS | CHICKEN MCMUFFIN | For an easy way to add more whole grains to your diet, try McDonald’s Chicken McMuffin.

QUIZNOS | TURKEY RANCH & SWISS SUB | This sub made healthy consists of five inches of toasted artisan-baked brown bread, then topped with high quality lean turkey ham, a healthier option compared to using pork ham. Add-ons include Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions for extra protein, vitamins and fibre. Ranch sauce is used as it is a lower calorie (yet still delicious) option as compared to thousand island or mayonnaise. Every bite will satisfy you with a great mix of fresh flavours while remaining pleasingly low in calories.
