Top 23 Vegetarian Restaurants in Singapore (you won’t realize there is no meat!)

Because of my mum’s cancer journey, I have learnt to become very picky about her food if she wanted to eat out. It is pretty hard to find fully organic restaurants in Singapore, but here are some of our top picks that try to be as clean and healthy as possible while retaining the yummy taste! 1) Afterglow Afterglow – Probably the one and only organic cafe focused on RAW food. Food is exquisitely made with intricate flavours. Good as a treat but the prices are too steep for everyday dining. We pay for effort as it does take a lot of effort to take raw food, let alone yummy raw food. My favourites – Deconstructed Sushi Bowl, Raw Lasagna and Pink Soy Latte Address: 24 Keong Saik Rd, Singapore 089131 Phone: 6224 8921 2) Real Food One of the original pioneers of real, organic, no MSG, vegan food in Singapore, Real Food is doing well with 3 outlets in Novena, Orchard Central (previously Killiney), South Beach and Central. They also 2 outlets in Malaysia! 3) Elemen One of …

Adam Taste @ Thomson V Two

After a great tipoff from the Vegetarian Society folks, we managed to find Adam Taste at Thomson V Two and it was a great find! Newly opened on 20th Sep too! It is a very spacious, comfortable cafe.. I guess it is a tradeoff – you can have a much bigger area in a place with relatively low footfall. Still relatively uncrowded since it is only been opened for 2 weeks now. The servers all seem to be kids of the couple who owned the place; they all seem a little stressed out by the kitchen’s operations but helpful nonetheless! The menu is also relatively limited at the moment – only hotpot, wanton noodles, nasi lemak, spaghetti, baked rice with drinks and fresh juices (not cold-pressed in case you are wondering). The food is pretty good quality though. We shared the Hot Pot and Nasi Lemak.  The Hot Pot‘s Tom Yum paste tasted pretty authentic. Serving size was pretty decent too for $12.90. I tried the vegetarian Nasi Lemak. I enjoyed the curry a lot, though …

If you or your loved ones have a Mercury Dental filling, read this!

I have always viewed mercury dental fillings as a norm of life. I don’t have them because I was vain and opted for composite fillings because they were prettier, but everyone else in my family have mercury dental fillings. However, when I brought my mum to the integrated oncology clinic, the first question the doctors asked her was whether she had mercury fillings and she was to remove them immediately! The episode made me think – if they deliver new mercury to dentists in a “bio-hazard” box to make fillings, and they also transport mercury away from the dentists after removal in a “bio-hazard” box to ensure no poisoning, WHY is the only safe place for mercury in our mouths? Video: This dramatic video of mercury vapor leaking gas from a “silver amalgam” dental filling has outraged the world since it was first demonstrated at an International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) meeting in 1995. Mercury may be odorless, colorless, tasteless and toxic, but mercury vapor casts a shadow in black light! Mercury is not …

Mum’s Stage 4 Colon Cancer Recovery Journey – Part 6

Now that mum’s Stage 4 Colon Cancer is in remission with her PET-CT scan showing resolved metabolic activity and her CEA markers consistently in normal range, there are days even I tend to forget the details of this blessed journey we have been on this year. It has really been a very epic year from being told my mum had stage 4 cancer in February when all she had was irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms, to being told in March she only had 6 months to live if she didn’t do chemotherapy, to her being in remission by Jun and now even healthier than before, without having to take her high blood pressure medication she was taking for 20 years before this. ALL in the same year! Hence, I decided I will be slowly write on our journey to capture God’s blessings every step of the way, to remind us to be thankful for everyday and also to let all of you out there who might be going through similar struggles to know that you …

Getting rid of Chlorine exposure in your showers!

Following my research on the potential ills of over-chlorination in our drinking water, I became very curious about how much chlorine we absorb during our showers. Apparently, we absorb more chlorine during a 10-minute shower than by drinking 8 glasses of tap water. (1) Most substances applied on skins can be absorbed into our blood streams via our porous skin within minutes, not to mention our skin is our largest organ and is fully soaking in chlorinated water! This video shows the speed at which chlorine can be absorbed into our blood stream: Video: See how quickly chlorine is absorbed into our bodies through the skin. The focus on chlorinating water has been to eliminate pathogens, and with good reason. According to a study conducted by the Natural Resources Defense Council, more than 120 million people (about 50% of the population) may get unsafe water  for consumption. Hence, chlorination of drinking water significantly reduced mortality rates associated with waterborne pathogen. However, research is starting to reveal the risks of over-chlorination. For example, some have claimed that a substantial …

Top Places to Buy Organic Produce in Singapore

Both my mum’s and my health recovery involved living on a raw, organic, vegan diet. And since Singapore is so short of land, the frequent question I get is – where do you get do organic food shops good, fresh yet affordable organic produce in Singapore? Hence, I am featuring my top picks of organic food shops based on: 1) Convenience – 1 stop for large selection 2) Affordability 3) Quality of Produce — 1) Zen Xin Agri-Organic Food Zenxin Agri-Organic Food (Zenxin) is Malaysia’s leading producer, distributor and retailer of organic produce, since its 2001 setup. As in the farms are relatively near Singapore, we can trust in the produce’s freshness. Zenxin has a wide selection in their shop at Pasir Panjang – the tropical crops are grown in Malaysia and Thailand while seasonal temperate crops are imported from around the world. The prices are kept affordable by farming in Malaysia (where land is more abundant than Singapore), and then shipping them over the short distance over the causeway. They have a membership program that …
