Most vegans have worked well around their dietary restrictions for a long time, but if you’re not vegan yourself, you might think that vegan food is simply too limited, plain boring or “too healthy” for anyone. But give it a chance and you might just be surprised at the myriad of creative and mind-blowingly tasty dishes that vegan chefs can come up with!

For working adults, it can be especially difficult to find vegan options for your 1 hour lunch break. So, we found a list of the top vegan cafés or dining choices in Singapore for you, specifically near the CBD area or in town.

For vegans who like their tea with a swirl of milk, it can be tough finding a good milk alternative. More and more people are choosing to ditch dairy due to the digestive discomforts caused by cow's milk – from bloating to constipation – but where can we turn for something equally nutritious and delicious?

Fear not, it's possible to make a tea-rrific cuppa even when you go dairy-free. Here are 8 vegan milk alternatives that can add pep to your daily brew.

1. Soy milk

One of the most well-known vegan milks, soy milk is made from ground soybeans boiled with water and filtered. This classic option is sure to be everyone's cup of tea, due to its mildly beany, versatile flavor and impressive health credentials. Soy milk has been found to pack the highest protein punch among most other alternative milks, in addition to containing phytonutrients called isotones, which have cancer-fighting properties.

The refreshing lightness of soy milk is often likened to skimmed milk, and it has a similar penchant for curdling when stirred into green or black tea. To avoid this, add soy milk and hot tea to your cup in alternating dollops to maintain a smooth, whole texture!

2. Oat milk

Another teatime crowd-pleaser, oat milk consists of steel-cut oats or hulled grains, which are blended in water and strained through a cheesecloth or nut milk bag. The result? A smooth, buttery blend reminiscent of the breakfast staple of cereal in milk.

Just one dose of this plant-powered potion will give you 36% of your recommended daily allowance of calcium, higher than that of cow's milk. Not only is it cholesterol-free, oat milk is loaded with vitamin A and lots of other wholesome minerals. Talk about a pick-me-up for your immune system!

 

3. Coconut milk

Coconut milk is made by soaking unsweetened shredded coconut in hot water. This mouthwatering creamy milk makes it an indispensable addition to popular Singaporean desserts like chendol and pulut hitam. With its full-bodied texture and saccharine taste, this alternative is guaranteed to please those who like their tea sweet and milky. Coconut milk is also higher in saturated fat than most other types of vegan milk, so a splash of this in your tea at breakfast will keep you satisfied and energized throughout the morning! It is no wonder big coffee chains like StarBucks are adding coconut milk as an alternative, alongside soy milks.

4. Almond milk

Chances are that you've savored almond milk in a cappucino or latte – but did you know that this rich, nutty milk pairs perfectly with tea as well? Almond milk derives from the blending of unsweetened almonds with water and thus is naturally packed with nutrients like vitamin E. Often added to chai tea, the almond notes produce a creamy texture and a strong flavor that you can sweeten with a zap of honey or maple syrup.

5. Hazelnut milk

Beloved in Nutella and other chocolate-y concoctions, hazelnut in milk might sound nutty but will give your cuppa a unique kick! This unusual vegan milk is made from soaked, blended and strained hazelnuts, producing a warm, aromatic brew. A generous dash of hazelnut milk in your tea will add sweetness and an intriguing roasted flavor. Plus, this teatime decadence is also rich in nutrients that promote heart health and blood formation, like vitamin B1, B2 and magnesium.

6. Rice milk

Rice milk is most often made from healthy brown rice, with the same blend-and-strain process that creates nut milks. Compared to other vegan milks, this subtly sweet option is less thick and has a much milder aftertaste, making it perfect for those who like to savor the taste of their tea strong. If you have a nut allergy or simply want your brew less nutty, you can't go wrong with rice milk.

7. Hemp milk

Hemp is celebrated as one of nature's superfoods – these golden-brown seeds punch way above their weight in their density of omega-3 fatty acids, which help fight cancer and heart disease. Made from ground hemp seeds, hemp milk is also full of proteiny goodness, so stir it into your post-workout brew for an invigorating tonic! This tasty plant blend has a slight maltiness that will pique the palettes of those who enjoy nutty milks.

8. Pea milk

Yes, peas. Hear us out – not only does it taste better than it sounds, this quirky newcomer to the vegan milk scene is a nutrition powerhouse. Pea milk typically packs more protein, calcium, and vitamin D than dairy milk, keeping your bones and immune system in tip-top shape.

Pea milk is made from split yellow peas which are milled into flour, with the pea protein separated from the fiber and blended with ingredients like sunflower oil. The result is a luscious, creamy milk in a light lemony hue, with none of the funky flavor you might fear. If you're looking to go nut free, soy free, and gluten free, this alternative will add a spice of adventure to your daily cuppa!

Now that there's such an exciting range of vegan milks out there, you'll definitely find one which is your cup of tea.  With a blender and your favorite ingredients, you could even grind your very own mix of milky goodness!

Soy Milk is the Healthiest, Study Says/ TIME

In our modern, diet-obsessed culture amidst an abundance of food, we often have a love-hate relationship with food and feel guilt for our mindless consumption. Our fast-paced lifestyle can leave little time for us to truly tune into our needs, and daily activities, such as eating, lend themselves more to this state of autopilot than others.

We encourage you to cultivate an intuitive and mindful eating practice – to consume food with attention and intention, to be aware of the nourishment available through the process of various food preparation and to appreciate the nutritional qualities of food. Zen your diet and read on for super doable tips on how to become a mindful eater.

1. Know your body’s personal hunger signals

Is your desire to munch on food an environmental trigger, an emotional response or of true physical hunger? Before you reach for those chocolates, pause and tune into your body. Is your stomach growling? Do you feel thirsty or lightheaded? Are you bored at work? Sometimes, we feel hungry simply because of our psychological state of mind, and not truly because our body is hungry for fuel.

Ask why you want to eat and if you really need to eat. Don’t eat just because there is food around, but don’t wait till you’re famished either. Such a pattern will cause you to overeat, lead to guilt and eventual excessive weight gain. You can even help to bolster the habit of excessive eating by drinking beverages such as tea to improve your well-being. Nilufer Tea offers a unique and interesting selection of organic herbal teas that can help to improve your mood and body.

2. Know your food

Mindfulness is really about rekindling a relationship with food and connecting with the stories behind our food. Think about the source of your food item, consider its origins, journey and health value, read the nutritional labels with more intent. What country did this food item start its journey in? How has it been processed, cooked or prepared? As you become more aware, you may even decide to choose to purchase organic, unprocessed and ethical foods and groceries in the future.

3. Adopt an attitude of gratitude

 

Acknowledge the time and effort that has been put into your food. Take some time, perhaps even just a few seconds, to think about the ingredients on your plate, the time needed to prepare the food, and also the intention behind all the effort that entered the plate. Thank your server or the person who prepared the food. A little gratitude promotes satisfaction and mindful habits.

4. Attend to your plate

Multitasking and eating all at once is a recipe for chaos. It distracts and disallows us to listen to our bodies’ needs. Remember how you went to the movies with a tub full of popcorn and before the advertisements were over, you realised your tub was almost finished? To be mindful, we need to be present and we can’t be present when we’re multitasking. It’s akin to meditation; it’s difficult to meditate when our thoughts are drawn elsewhere. In a similar vein, it’s a challenge to notice our bodies’ satiety signals and savour our food if our attention is scattered or plugged to our devices.

With your next meal, try to attend to your plate without your emails, a magazine or the latest episode on Netflix. Be attentive to the aroma, colour, texture of the different foods on your plate and as you chew, try to identify all the ingredients, seasonings and more. And if you are eating with someone, make conversation instead of gluing your eyes on your phones.

5. Eat better, eat clean

Make a conscious choice to eat healthier, wholesome foods or even go vegan! Mindful eating is not a weight loss cure-all, but it can catapult healthful weight loss as it shapes your food philosophies and bodies at the same time.

See beyond the rim of your plate, see the dangerous toll that some processed meats and dairy products can take on your bodies, and the destruction that meat production and dairy farming has on the environment. Consume foods that are all-natural, unrefined and minimally handled, foods which are closest to their natural form as possible. But of course, do note that eating clean does not give you free reign to eat endless quantities. Think about portion size control and only eat till you’re full.

Eating clean and mindfully is a continuous process which requires diligence but once you begin to get into the swing of things, it’s almost effortless! Mindful eating may be integrated into any routine overtime so embrace this new approach to mealtimes and you might find that it offers a renewed sense of enjoyment, inner peace and health. It’s not just what you eat, but how you eat that matters.

You would think that making instagram-worthy healthy dishes are difficult and very time-consuming, but in truth, that doesn't have to be the case. There are so many simple recipes online that consist of ingredients that are bright and colour, giving the dish itself a vibrant colour that increases your appetite and even make you fall in love with healthy food.
Eating healthy and yet be able to instagram your food doesn't have to be difficult. Rosie Hatch, a renowed author with her own cookbook, Rosie's Rustic Kitchen, has shared with us 3 simple recipes that uses many fruits and vegetables that give the dishes a sprig of colour but a whole lot of health benefits. They are not difficult to make and the ingredients are relatively easy to find.
While these recipes are centered around the theme of pink, you can always add customisations that suit your palette and even add a myriad of colours to your dish. So without further ado, read on for these fantastic recipes that will probably turn you after a health nut after the whole process.

Watermelon Salad

Who knew watermelon makes a great salad topper? Perfect for Spring or Summer, this vibrant dish is a hostess’ dream. Simply add your ingredients to the platter then drizzle with your favorite vinaigrette dressing. Serve alongside your favorite entrée, or keep it as a meal in itself. Watermelons are refreshing by themselves, so imagine adding them to your salads, and you will get a whole lot of yum!

INGREDIENTS
½ watermelon or personal size watermelon
2 cups spinach
1 cucumber
Blueberries
Fresh mint
Goat cheese
Dressing of choice

INSTRUCTIONS

On a platter or in a bowl add fresh spinach. With a spiralizer, make noodles using a cucumber and add to the top. Slice watermelon in to cubes and add to salad along with blueberries and crumbled goat cheese. Top with mint for garnish and your favorite dressing. Enjoy!

You can even customise it with other bright fruits such as strawberries for that rich red-pink, or even rockmelons for their cheerful yellow.

Beet Pasta

Making pasta pink is easier than you think! Just cook your normal pasta al dente (works with spaghetti, penne, or even shells!) then toss in a beet paste for a few minutes. Beet contains juices that have a natural vibrant and bright red-pink colour, making it a common ingredient for colouring foods. Merging the beet paste with the pasta will allow the pasta to absorb the pink color, as well as give it a hint of exotic flavoring. Serve with parmesan and your favorite sauce!

INGREDIENTS
½ lb farfalle pasta
2 roasted beets
½ cup almond slices
Parmesan cheese
2 garlic cloves
Olive oil
Salt
Pasta sauce of choice
INSTRUCTIONS

Cook pasta until al dente, and set it aside. In a food processor, add beets, almonds, chopped garlic, a dash of olive oil and salt and pulse until it resembles a pesto. Toss the pasta in the sauce until thoroughly covered. Serve as is or rise off to just get pink pasta then serve with grated parmesan and your favorite pasta sauce.

 

Beet Hummus

Beets can be used in just about anything, and here’s proof. In this recipe, you upgrade your usual hummus into something prettier and also healthier, simply from adding beets. With great nutrition value and a ton of health benefits, your already-great hummus will get an even greater boost. This zesty hummus has all the makings of the perfect dip for your vegetables because it has the familiar flavor of classic hummus but with an earthier flair due to the beets. Try it with crackers, cucumbers or even carrots. Nothing can go wrong with hummus!

INGREDIENTS
1-15oz can garbanzo beans (chickpeas), drained and cooked
3-4 roasted beets, precooked
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp tahini
1 tsp salt
1 garic clove chopped
Olive oil
INSTRUCTIONS

In a food processor add all ingredients except for olive oil. With the processor running slowly pour in olive oil a little at a time until you get a hummus-like consistency. Serve with vibrant veggies!

Gone are the days when people give you weird stares for mentioning that you are vegetarian or vegan. For many people the choice to be vegetarian or vegan is based on a myriad of different reasons such as religion, health or the environment. Singapore lives up to its name of being a food haven and there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian friendly options in various different cuisines. However, not everyone is willing to jump on the vegan/vegetarian bandwagon. These restaurants can help you when you want to introduce a curious friend or a hesitant family member into the goodness of this diet.

1. Zen Herbivore Japanese Vegetarian Restaurant

Kick starting my day with an oat bowl which turned out to be perfect because it is raining heavily right now ⛈ Cooked my oats with chia seeds and rice mylk and poured it into my @coconarts bowl (mine’s the giant classic coconut bowl). Topped it off with @zesprikiwifruit gold kiwi, pomegranate, blueberries, @navitasorganics hemp seeds, @naturespathorganic granola, and lastly, “berries & hibiscus” chocolate squares from @pana_chocolate x @t2tea. Wow that was a handful 🤣 Finished every bit of it and loved how the chocolate squares melted over my piping hot oats 😋 #jaslyngohdishes #panachocolate #t2tea #coconarts #oatmealbowl #oatbowl

A post shared by Jaslyn Goh (@jaslyngoh) on

As one of the familiar faces in the Singapore vegan community, Jaslyn truly embodies the passion and love for real food. Apart from posting her delectable creations and meals on her Instagram page, Jaslyn is also the brainchild of @souleygreen, Singapore's first online vegan mart.

She shares on her blog about her motivation behind this venture - when she first started out as a vegan in 2014, it was difficult for her to get cruelty-free and plant-based products at one place. Often, Jaslyn had to hop between various stores to purchase her necessities, and shop online for certain products that Singapore did not carry at that time. Thus, to bridge the gap between brands and consumers and make the vegan lifestyle more accessible, Jaslyn opened Souley Green.

Although her Instagram feed isn't dominated by vegan food, her spirit and passion for veganism still shines through, and will definitely inspire you to eat healthy, if not try veganism out!

A post shared by nicole 🦋 (@_findingnicole) on

With Nicole's bright and colourful Instagram feed, your eyes will be in for a treat as you spend the next hour scrolling through the page, wondering how vegan food can look so delicious. Her unique creations of 'unicorn' tofu mousse and immaculate pancake stacks will definitely leave you drooling. Behind her bright and eye-catching photos, however, lies a touching and inspiring story of how she became vegan.

2 years ago, Nicole was struggling with an eating disorder, depriving herself of nutrition and happiness as she convinced herself that she was still 'too big'. Upon discovering veganism, she decided to pull herself out of the void of eating disorders. She realised that her body was a vessel that kept her alive, and the food she consumed gave her fuel to live. Thus, she filled herself with plant-based food that keeps her full and healthy, and encourages her followers switch to a plant-based diet as well.

Vegan peanut butter, chocolate chip and double chocolate cookies made with @mayversfood (the general concept is that the more cookies you consume, the higher the chances of becoming a smart cookie, since you are what you eat, yes science doesn’t work that way but we can all dream). Hello friends, hope all of you had merry celebrations and overate ridiculously but in a good way! Had a break to scrape my mind together which meant a lot of ugly oatmeal bowls and watching too many films per day on the couch and reading. It’s been nice to let my kitchen faculties get back into order. With so little of the year left, seize the day and eat as many cookies as you like to redeem 2017! Sending you love ❤️ (PS - thank you guys for being so supportive. can’t wait to share with you video projects, recipes, more photos and everything under the sun. thank you for giving me this space to make ☺️)

A post shared by Lin (@tumblinbumblincrumblincookie) on

Lin's vegan creations are simply out of this world - simply take a look at her vegan spiced pumpkin cinnamon rolls and vegan peppermint dark chocolate tart - who knew such decadent desserts could be vegan? The best part is that she shares the recipes for all these goodness on her blog, accompanied with her stellar writing which she uses to dish out her thoughts and feelings about her daily life, which is so relatable.
