Guilt-free indulgences that go beyond just eating meat-free
You’d be surprised how hard it is to find a vegetarian or vegan restaurant that’s actually healthy. Many people have chosen to go meat-free for health reasons, but find that a lot of the vegetarian options in Singapore are not necessarily very healthy.
To appeal to the meat-lovers, most vegan and vegetarian restaurants have included mock meat in their menu, and these meat alternatives tend to be highly processed and made of gluten and soy protein. Add the refined grains, the excess oil to enhance the flavors, sauces and desserts laden with sugar, and your meal is not very far from junk food.
We don’t think you should give up on vegetarian and vegan restaurants, though. A clean food revolution is taking over existing and new restaurants in Singapore. Whether you’re a vegetarian/vegan or you’re looking to eat healthier, here are seven restaurants to try that don’t skimp out on taste for wholesome nutrition:

7. Create Healthy Lifestyle
Fortune Center is home to a variety of vegetarian eateries, and one of the healthiest options is Create Healthy Lifestyle. They not only keep mock meat, salt and oil to a minimum, but also use a lot of organic vegetables and noodles. What’s more, you can enjoy the dishes at amazing value for all their high-quality ingredients. If you’re looking for a lighter remix of your Asian favourites, you can’t go wrong with the Organic Vegetable Sushi Rolls ($5), the Organic Soba Cold Noodles ($6), or the Thunder Tea Rice ($6.50), all topped with generous amounts of greens. To mix and match from their daily offerings of vegetables, opt for the Organic Brown Rice Set with soup and three dishes ($6). Can’t get enough of the food? There’s even a store within the restaurant where you can purchase some of the organic produce you’ve enjoyed.
