When people talk about healthy eating, they associate it with low-fat diet recipes that take time and effort to prepare. What they do not realise is that it is easy to eat healthy, even when eating out, so long as you make conscious calorie-friendly choices! Recognising Singaporeans’ busy lifestyles, the Health Promotion Board launched its Healthy Dining Programme and partnered with a number of food establishments to serve up healthier, lower calorie meals that complement typical eating patterns. Here are our recommended dishes from participating food providers in the Healthier Dining Programme:
SOUP RESTAURANT | BRAISED GOLDEN MUSHROOM WITH CONPOY BABY CABBAGE | Inspired by the tradition of reunion dinners and dinner meals for Samsui women of the past, Soup Restaurant offers a menu of comforting dishes that hark back to old Chinatown. More than taste, food to the Chinese is about nourishment. So try this braised golden mushrooms braised with soft baby cabbage infused with the flavourful stock of conpoy and wolfberries. Soup Restaurant also uses healthier oil in the preparation of all their food.
