Lunch I made the other day – which was fairly simple to make.
Just steam the broccoli in the rice cooker while cooking the pasta. Drain the pasta once it’s cooked and heat up the saucepan with some extra virgin olive oil. Sauté the pasta and then sprinkle the ‘Herb & Garlic’ seasoning with it. Serve on a plate with the smoked salmon on top and steamed broccoli on the side.
I’ve been drinking 2 glasses of warm lemon water every morning for over a week and it’s doing wonders to my digestive system, skin and appetite! If you drink coffee every morning, try giving warm lemon water a try this week – it makes a good form of laxative too 😉
Stumbled upon Real Food Café while I was on my way to a meeting with Nuffnang back in Singapore. So I managed to convince Huiwen and Amanda to have lunch and our meeting there 😛
To be honest, we only realized that it was a vegan restaurant upon reading everything on the menu. There were no fish, chicken or meat in any of the dishes!
The dish could use a little bit more flavor – perhaps some garlic would do the trick. I sprinkled a little too much seasoning on it (I think it was paprika powder…) which made it tastier but my stomach was burning by the time I finished everything on the plate. I should really take my doctor’s advice and lay off the spicy food until my acid reflux has gone down. But man, I just can’t live without spice.
The Wheatgrass Apple juice was recommended by the waitress and I liked it. It tasted more like apple juice than wheatgrass but was certainly refreshing.
Thoughts: While the food is reasonably priced, the dishes are fairly easy to prepare for yourself at home. Everything on the menu is so healthy that they don’t even do fries! It’s nice to see that there’s finally an organic vegan restaurant in town, perhaps they’ll bring Whole Foods to Singapore too? Although, I highly doubt it as the prices will be insane.
Speaking of which, would I be vegan if I wanted to? The answer is yes. But I don’t think I’m ready to commit on giving up fish and chicken. I could maybe try it out for a week though. We’ll see about that.
KL, when are you going to catch up and start opening up more healthy restaurant/cafe spots?
Real Foods is located at Central (Clarke Quay) at#B1-52/53.
I was in Singapore the other day and attended the NIKE Spring 2011 Launch at Naumi Hotel Suite.
One of his memorable quotes: “My momma always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where the go, where they’ve been. I’ve worn lots of shoes, I bet if I think about it real hard I can remember my first pair of shoes.”
Some behind-the-scenes photos from the covershoot for CLIVE Magazine (Feb 2011 issue)! I had so much fun at this shoot. They used a projector to project images against the white wall to create different backgrounds and feel.
The wardrobe was also very unique and I especially liked this one:
Editor of CLIVE magazine, Robert Chan.
With the CLIVE crew.
With my make-up artist, Ming.
Thanks for having me on the cover, CLIVE!
“There’s nothing wrong with having a strong habit of exercise but when it becomes destructive to your mental well being and the rest of your life, you really have a sense check your priorities. I proudly pig out on Nando’s (with extra fries) once a week because you know what, it makes me a little happy! Extra hot sauce people, it’s to die for.”
“Anything can be addictive if that’s all you live for. If you live for someone, you’ll feel ‘addicted’ and end up being too ‘clingy’ which is bad for a relationship. Same with chocolate, you can be addicted to it and crave for it everyday to the detriment of your health, but the difference is, chocolates are good with relationships.”

How funny is this? My boyfriend and I are both on the cover of 2 different magazines for the month of February! This is my first magazine cover in Malaysia, exactly a year after my first cover for STUFF magazine in Singapore last year. As for Charles, it’s his first magazine cover ever, congrats baby!
