Carbs often get a negative reputation, especially by the weight conscious due to the notion that overstuffing on carbs often lead to an unwanted belly. True as it may be, consuming the right types of carbs can actually reverse the effect and help you lose weight as well as maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The bad ones, better known as refined carbohydrates, are most commonly found in white bread, white rice, sugary cereals and in many of our favourite local hawker dishes. Besides being bad for your weight, consuming too much of these adulterated ingredients can also raise your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
The good news is that working the ‘right’ carbs into your diet can help prevent these health problems. They come in more natural forms such as whole grain wheat bread, fruits and vegetables. And with many healthier options readily available to us, you can even find healthier, wholegrain substitutes for cookies, wraps, and even pasta.
Sure, it ain’t easy; but baby steps. We substitute our carbs slowly but surely. Here are 4 easy recipes that incorporate wholegrain carbs into our everyday home-cooked dishes. We’ve tried them and hey, they actually taste pretty good!

An omakase course is a Japanese dining tradition where diners entrust their dining experience entirely to the chef who will showcase his culinary skills and creativity throughout the meal. To the Japanese, an omakase course is not to be taken lightly—only chefs with many years of culinary experience are able to dazzle you with the season’s best ingredients and exotic delicacies.
Since omakase is serious business, those who are looking for an authentic experience that is similar to what you will find in Japan have to know about Sushi Jiro at Marina Mandarin Singapore. The reputable Japanese restaurant serves fresh fish and seafood that are air-flown from Tsukiji Market in Tokyo four times a week.
Just when we thought that we had tried the best at Sushi Jiro during our last trip, Chef Kenji Nakagawa took our taste buds on another gastronomic journey with their 8-course and 10-course omakase dinners—comprising fresh sashimi, decadent Japanese wagyu beef and top-grade nigiri sushi.
Just for our followers, you can now get a free upgrade of your omakase when you quote ‘ladyironchef’ upon making reservation—the price of a 6-course dinner (S$180) will grant you an 8-course menu with better items; the price of an 8-course dinner (S$220) means an upgrade to the best 10-course dinner!
