In Singapore this year, we've seen loads of infographics telling us how much we'd need to exercise in order to burn off calories.
However, exercising is just one part of the equation. In fact, fitness experts often say – abs are made in the kitchen!
Food intake is extremely important in helping us get back on track to eating healthy as well. Instead of eating home-packed salads every day, we have shortlisted the 10 Best Places To Eat Healthy Food in Singapore where you can go indulge in lunch or dinner without feeling guilty!
1. Toss And Turn By Cedele

I've always loved Cedele for their high quality fresh food and when I first saw their salad bars, I knew it was going to be a hit.
They've opened a shop called Toss & Turn, an eatery specialising in salad and soup which serves similar healthy fare. Its design-your-own salads come in huge portions and often leave me feeling like I've eaten much more than just a salad.

Even their salads-to-order are making waves with funky names like Go Geisha, Oh Crab Lah! and Inhale Ex-Kale.
You can even order online now and pick it up at the nearest outlet to you an hour later – saves you time from queuing!

Offering healthy wraps filled to the brim with veggies, Simply Wrapps hits the right spot at catering for those who just want greens and those who need a little more carbs.
Have you seen their wraps? They are so huge and filled with goodness you'd never think that eating salads could be so “sinful”.

If you are working in the CBD and are surrounded by health-conscious colleagues, you'd know The Salad Corner even if you aren't a salad-muncher.

Over at The Lawn, grilled meats and seafood take the centre-stage rather than the salads. Diners get to customise their own salads with yummy grills.
There are even grilled veggies for the vegetarians! The Lawn provides a healthy serve of olive rice too if vegetables are too light for you.

6. Soup Spoon

Soup lovers cannot dispute that Soup Spoon remains one of the favourite soup bars in Singapore. In fact, they are quite the pioneer! Having been around since 2002, the successful brand has some 23 outlets in Singapore and has even expanded to include other food brands serving yummilicious food.
Soup Spoon takes pride in serving less processed food with zero preservatives and has even introduced a “Souper Diet” which has showed results of an average 4.3 kg loss on a 28-day soup diet.
Even if you aren't keen to go on such an extreme diet, incorporating lunches at Soup Spoon will probably do great to help you start eating clean.
What's more, the caloric content that's displayed will greatly aid those tracking their calorie intake as well.
It's also nice that the kitchen reinvents itself by bringing in seasonal soups, providing more variety from their menu staples.

Soup Stock Tokyo has been around since 1999 but it's relatively new in Singapore. Seasonal ingredients are sourced from Japanese farms and the soup chain similarly embraces the no additives, no-MSG principle.
The menu consists of some exclusive Japanese favourites such as Hokkaido pumpkin potage, Tokyo borsch and Hokkaido crab bisque.

The Daily Cut sees long queues during lunch and dinner hours at their flagship store at 1 Raffles Place.
They serve protein bowls packed with grilled meats such as Sirloin steaks, chicken thighs and salmon fillets.
If bulking is your aim, you can always choose from the largest of the 3 portions – the “Beast” option and top it up with extra complex carbs of sweet potatoes, brown rice or whole grain pasta.
The Daily Cut offers healthy food that beats the stereotype that you gotta be a rabbit in order to eat healthy!

9. Caveman Food

Have you already heard of the Paleo diet? The Paleo diet focuses on eating how cavemen used to eat. The diet consists largely of fresh proteins like meat and fish and it also includes vegetables. It excludes dairy, grains and processed food.
While the principle looks simple, it's actually pretty hard to stick to given that so much of what we consume everyday is somewhat processed or drenched in heavy gravy made with cream or flour.
Caveman Food serves its staple of proteins that are cooked simply with spices, being careful not to use any artificial flavouring, MSG or sugar.
A set meal comes with your choice of protein, and 2 side dishes that include complex carbs, baked eggs or greens.
Caveman Dine In 1 Vista Exchange Green The Star Vista #02-27C Singapore 138617
Caveman Take-Away Kiosk 10 Sinaran Road #B1-130 Square 2 Basement Singapore 307506
Shinkansen offers Japanese-styled protein bowls, platters and sets for those who want to eat clean, strong and zen.
You get to choose from two sizes of bowls, with the bigger “Station” portion giving you 2 servings of protein.
You can go light by having vegetables as your base or go for a more filling mixed grain sushi rice with assorted greens or the buckwheat soba noodles.
The protein portions are greatly Japanese-inspired – yakiniku steak, miso braised pork, tuna sashimi and yuzu honey roast chicken – you get the drift. Definitely the place for Japanese food lovers to eat clean!
