A healthy diet is paramount to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. More often than not, eating healthy equates eating salads and quinoa. But that does not mean that the hawker fare Singaporeans love and know cannot provide us with the necessary nutrients and vitamins that we need too. You see, as long as we are conscious about picking healthier choices, those are baby steps to achieving a healthier lifestyle—slowly but surely.
Hawker food is the epicenter of Singaporean culture. But there is a common notion that hawker foods are not as healthy. As such, those of us in search of healthier options tend to give in to salad and grain bowls—which often take a massive toll on our wallets.
