It’s week 2 of our Healthy Eating challenge and we’re not giving up just yet!
This week we’re partnering with foodmatters.me for some wholesome, clean-eating experience. Follow our Lifestyle Writer, Pamela Victor, and the rest of the MC team on their healthy-eating experience. Be sure to follow us on Facebook & Instagram to check it out!
Tom Yam Pasta with Tempeh
“One of the best vegetarian pastas I’ve ever tried. It was full of flavour and the mushrooms complemented the taste of the Tom Yam and would make you think you were having actual tomyam. The tempeh was a good source of protein – and was quite filling. Overall, a good substitute for your usual pasta dishes, minus the fat and oils. Definitely the dish when you’re craving some carb in your diet.”
Mushroom and Spinach Crustless Quiche with Salad
“One of those just-nice meals that doesn’t fill you up too much and leaves you uncomfortable. The crustless-ness kept the quiche light at texture. The spinach and the mushroom combined gave out a full flavour despite not having meat in it. The salad with a hint of dressing perfectly balanced up the meal.”
“The wrap contained tender chunks of chicken breast and was seasoned well with not too much tandoori flavour. Inside the wrap was also a yogurt salad that acted as dressing which was perfect otherwise it would have been too dry to be eaten on its own (although be sure to eat it right away or it may turn one part of your wrap soggy). I’ve always been a fan of wraps for lunch and this was definitely a much healthier (and better) option to my usual. Thanks Food Matters!”
Falafels served in a Pita with Garlic Mint Yogurt
“The garlic mint yogurt complemented the falafel but did not overpower the flavour altogether, instead it gave a refreshing aftertaste. The entire meal was a combination of textures and flavours, it’s hard to believe it is only made out of 5.8g of fat. It was definitely filling as the pitas were of sizeable portions.”
“My initial reaction- How can Nasi Lemak be possibly healthy? But I must give it to Food Matters for doing a job well done. All the essential components of Nasi Lemak was present including anchovies and peanuts (minus the oil and salt, of course). The santan-cooked rice was substituted with lighter brown rice (for obvious reasons) but the sambal and the chicken rendang was flavourful enough to make me think that I was eating a regular nasi lemak. For only 398 calories, this gluten-free Nasi Lemak will satisfy your Malaysian palate without putting you in a post-lunch food coma.”
Vietnamese Rice Noodle
“This rice noodle meal comes as close as the real deal. Served with rice noodles, loads of veges, grilled chicken pieces, chilli padi and sauce, the entire meal was more than fulfilling. I personally, would have preferred more sauce but everything else was in perfect portioning to keep me filled throughout the afternoon. Recommended for spicy-food lovers”
For an extensive range of healthy food, from rice to wraps, Food Matters would be a great option. I also particularly like that each meal came with information regarding the amount of calories, carbs and fat I’m consuming!
