Planning a Continental Breakfast Menu is quite easier than planning a conventional breakfast; for one thing, continental breakfast narrows down the choices that you have to choose from.

While conventional breakfast usually includes rice or bread and salad and finger food, a continental breakfast consists of either coffee or tea and a baked pastry.

So when you are planning a continental breakfast menu, you have a limit to what kinds of food you are allowed to serve for it to still be called continental. First you have to choose your beverage; you can serve both coffee and tea if you like.

Next, you have to choose a main dish, which is usually a bake pastry or bread. You can try serving one baked pastry and one toasted or fresh bread.

Continental Breakfast Origin

The term Continental originated when the hotels that are serving breakfast needed to let the potential guests that they are serving breakfast, and in order to send a message to the guests that they won’t be serving heavy breakfast.

Continental Breakfast was used to differentiate from American Breakfast, since European people tend to eat less than the American ones. Continental breakfast menu usually serve juices, tea or coffee with bread based main food, in contrast with the American which is served with bread, pancakes, meat products, and also rice.

Continental Breakfast Suggestions

If you are planning to come up with a continental breakfast menu, there are three important things that you have to consider, these are: starches, beverage, and others.

First thing you have to consider is your main food; starches are the key element of a continental breakfast. Starches can be in the form of breads, muffins, scones, bagels, croissants along with jams or spreads or cheese.

Second is the beverage that you are going to serve. Most continental breakfasts serve juices and coffee, but you can also serve tea with those said beverages. Hot beverages are often served in continental beverages with the exemption of the fruit juices that can also be served.

Last thing to consider is your miscellaneous menu, some continental breakfast also serve fruit slices and pieces, but you have to make sure to keep the fruits in a frozen or iced container to avoid spoiling. Sometimes, single serve cereal boxes are also included in the menu for continental breakfast.

Difference of American Breakfast Menu from Continental Breakfast Menufresh-apple-juice-with-apple-slices-and-cinnamon-stick-for-winter

There is a huge difference between serving American style breakfast compared to Continental style breakfast, first and most apparent difference is the amount of food available, continental breakfast only serve pastry based food as the main entree, while in American breakfast, you will have an overwhelming choice on rice, bread, pancakes, French toasts, meat products, fruits and salad.

The second difference is the way American breakfast serves any kind of beverages from cold juices, to hot tea and coffee, in contrast to the way only hot drinks and beverages are usually served in a Continental Breakfast Menu, only some cold juices are served sometimes.

They say that Paleo Breakfast Recipes, or simply the Paleo Diet in general is an effective way of eating healthy and losing weight. Before giving stereotype comments like “Oh, diet recipes are hard to follow” or “Diet recipes tell you what you want to hear but they don’t do their part in doing what they said they would”, let us first find out what Paleo Diet really is.

Paleo is derived from the word Paleolithic, yes that’s right the Stone Age about 2.6 million years ago where our cavemen ancestors are believed to have lived. During that time, according to studies, our ancestors only ate plants that they have scavenged and wild animals that they have caught.

In other words, they did not have rice or bread. So that basically is the origin of the Paleo Diet that we know today, to take away the “grains” or the rice and bread of every meal, and concentrate instead with making the green vegetable your carbs.

Scientist believed that because the digestive patterns of the body of the cavemen and our digestive patterns of our body today surely haven’t changed. What changed drastically through time instead is our way of eating and our eating habits, which have deteriorated. So, Paleo Diet aims to remove the bad eating habits that we have eventually developed through time, and replace it with the healthy way of eating that our cavemen ancestors had.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so therefore when on a diet, it is important to include the diet in your first meal of the day. That’s where Paleo Breakfast Recipes comes in, to help you prepare your breakfast in a healthy way.

I had often upper respiratory infections, and they slowly healed when on the Paleo and they never came back. Previously I used to have a cold every few months, and now this has improved so much that I only got a cold once in two years, and it disappeared in several days (before it took me over 3 weeks) on the Paleo and adding high doses of vitamin D3.”—Ben

Most cuisines, even those at hawker centers offer healthy choices and it is up to you to request for less salt or pick the healthier dishes and eat the more unhealthy choices in moderation.

Besides shopping, eating is one of Singaporean’s favourite pastimes. Singaporeans just love to look for new places and new cuisines to try. Besides cuisines from the four major racial groups, you can find various international cuisines including those from Mexico, Mongolia, Russia and many other countries. However, nothing beats the hawker centers if you want to try some of your favourite local dishes. Although many hawker fares are not considered healthy as many of them are deep fried or use MSG, salt and tons of oil, there are some hawker food you can choose in your neighborhood hawker centre that can give you the nutrients your body needs to stay healthy.

Top 4 Healthy Food in Singapore

Yong Tau Foo

yong-tau-fuThis hawker fare offers you many healthy choices because you can pick you own healthy ingredients such as tofu, green leafy vegetables, broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables and fish paste. Try to avoid choosing ingredients that are deep fried as they may contain high calories. Choose the clear soup version rather than the laksa or curry soup base. A bowl of Yong Tau Foo with good mix of fresh vegetables and tofu makes a nutritious and filling meal. Total energy intake is about 165 calories per bowl.

Fishball Kway Teow Noodle

noodle-tomyum-soupFishball kway teow noodle, fishball mee noodle or fishball bee hoon (vermicelli) has about 3g of fat per serving as compared to 12g of fat for minced meat noodles. That’s 4 times less fat and therefore fishball noodle makes a healthy choice. Bee Hoon also has low Glycemic Index (GI) which means you will not feel hungry for longer period. Remember to always ask for no pork, no lard and less oils when making your order. Total energy intake per bowl is about 370 calories.

Sliced Fish Soup

sliced-fish-soupThere are basically 2 variety of fish soups – fresh fish slices and fried fish – choose the former as it is healthier. A typical bowl of fish soup usually comes with serving of tomatoes, tofu cubes and seaweed in clear broth. This makes fish soup a good healthy food choice that is high in proteins and low in fats. Remember to ask that no milk be added to the soup. You can order a bowl of sliced fish soup with or without noodles or rice. Take without noodle if you want lower calories. Sliced fish soup is a healthier option than seafood soup as the latter has higher calories. Total energy intake without noodles or rice is about 180 calories per bowl.

Herbal Soup

herbal-soupThere are quite a few variety of nutritious herbal soups you can choose from, ranging from herbal chicken soup, herbal ginseng, watercress with pork rib and lotus root. You may want to order some side dishes to complement your soup such as vegetables or brown rice.

Here are some basic guidelines when choosing and eating healthy food in Singapore:

  1. Go for soupy version and avoid the deep fried version.
  2. Ask for no pork, no lard, less salt and less oil.
  3. Ask for more vegetables to be used or added.
  4. Go for steamed and boiled version.

Be it Asian or international cuisine, each has their fair share of healthy fare and unhealthy stuff. Having said that, the Asian cuisine you get in Singapore are probably more authentic, with more variety of delicious dishes cooked in healthier ways compared to the greasy version in other countries. The next time you dine out, besides ordering healthier food version, ask about what ingredients are being used to cook your meals and request for lighter, healthier version.

What other healthy food in Singapore did you order when you eat out recently?

Do you find it tough to eat healthy food in Singapore nowadays? If you are, you are not alone. Many people find it easier to execute a fitness plan than a diet plan. They have no problem following a fitness regimen which may include going to the gym 5 times a week, doing cardiovascular and resistance training or taking Yoga or Pilates lessons every week. But there is just one thing that they find it hard to follow through and that to eat healthy in Singapore where there is a wide variety of tasty but not-so-healthy cuisines.

Each of us have our own weakness for food and obstacles to overcome when it comes to healthy eating. We know we should be eating healthy everyday but somehow we find it a challenge to resist the temptations to eat those tantalizing but not so healthy food we encounter in hawker centers and eating places all over Singapore. So what to do? Here are the real reasons, or should I say excuses, why people are not eating healthy and how to deal with it the Singapore way.

Excuse #1 – Eating healthy food in Singapore is expensive

groceries-shopping-bag

Being on budget is a very common reason and a perceived barrier to eating healthy. Going to the fast food chains for dinner often seems more cost effective and more convenient than going to the supermarket to buy grocery for you and your family. Although the price of organic healthy food may indeed be higher than other foods, the truth is that if you can shop smart and buy healthy, you can still enjoy a full healthy meal with your family within budget.

What to do about it? First plan your grocery list and decide what to buy before you go grocery shopping. Keep a lookout for good offer and promotion. Major supermarkets like NTUC Fairprice, Sheng Siong, Shop N Save and Giant advertised their items on discount on the newspapers almost daily. If you shop regularly at NTUC Fairprice, you may want to consider signing up for the Fairprice Plus card (for non-NTUC union members) where you can enjoy up to 8% discounts for Fairprice house brands and you can get Linkpoints to redeem items on your next purchase.

Excuse #2 – Social settings does not allow me to take healthy food

couple-having-lunch-at-rustic-gourmet-restaurant

There are times our family and friends gather together to dine in, dine out and be merry. You may also need to attend company events. In such occasions, the healthy eating habits that you have been cultivating are often thrown away. The social pressure to follow the crowd and eat whatever is being offered on the menu can easily overcome any strong will and its sometimes futile to resist the temptations.  But you should know that the main purpose of taking time out with your friends and family is simply to be together. There are always ways to stick to your healthy food diet plan even when the social setting makes it challenging.

What to do about it? If you are going to dine out, check out the menu before the order and select healthier dishes. If you are eating in, you may want to bring a healthy dish like salads to be shared among your friends and family. You may still enjoy those not so healthy foods that you loved but take smaller portion of each. If you need to take beverages, choose a glass or red wine or a light beer with a handful of peanuts for healthy snack.

Excuse #3 – Difficult to find healthy food option when eating out

Although many foods offer in hawker centers and eating places are not considered healthy as many of them are deep fried, has too much sodium and use excessive amount of oils, Singapore has probably more authentic Asian cuisines that are prepared in healthier ways compared to the greasy version in other countries. It is also up to you to request for and choose healthier dishes and eat those less healthy dishes in moderation.

What to do about it? Now more hawker fares and restaurants are providing more options to eat in a healthy way.The next time you eat out, choose the soupy version instead of deep fried version. Also ask for more vegetables and less salt and sugar.  Many restaurants now offer healthier, lighter options. Check out the menu and nutrition facts whenever possible and request for modifications of your food option to reduce calorie.

Can you think of other reasons or excuses people give to avoid eating healthy food in Singapore?

In the previous article Eating Healthy Food Singapore Way (Part 1), we look at the three reasons or excuses why many folks in Singapore are not eating healthy and provide some ideas to deal with them. Here are more reasons or excuses people give for not eating healthy and what to do about it.

Excuse #4 – Don’t have time to prepare healthy food

family-preparing-mea-mealtime-together

Due to the hectic lifestyle in Singapore, it is understandable that people find it difficult to prepare their own healthy meals. However, like many things in life, planning is the key. With proper planning, it will be easier to achieve many tasks at hand and healthful eating and nutrition is no exception.

What to do about it? Plan ahead for the week. Use some free time you may have on weekends to prepare for the coming week. For example, you can chop or pre-cut vegetables or fruits, prepare salad and portion healthy snacks in small bags to freeze. These may help you save some time to prepare the food during your hectic weekdays. On days you really don’t have the time to cook, you may grab some prepared salad or chicken breast sandwich at the corner shop for lunch or takeaway.

Excuse #5 – My family prefers less healthy food

healthy-diet

When it comes to changing eating habits from an unhealthy to healthy one, it takes time. Therefore, your family will be no exception. The important thing is to start taking small steps. For example, start to introduce a vegetable dish for dinner whereas in the past your family may be eating mainly fried stuff for dinner. The key is to start small and work slowly and progressively towards your family goal of better healthy eating and living.

What to do about it? Get your family members involved in taking small steps and change to their eating habits for the better. Make it fun for everyone. If your family members find healthy food too bland, find new and fun ways to prepare healthy meals. You can find many informative healthy cooking tips and recipes available on the internet.

Excuse #6 – Unhealthy eating habits are hard to change

a-beautiful-girl-eating-healthy-food

Old habits are indeed hard to change. If habits are that easy to change, everyone will be working out and eating healthily with no worries. But that is not the case for many people. That is why you need to start with a clear goal and getting yourself motivated. Is it to be healthier, for weight loss, to look better or other reasons? It takes about a month to get used to a new habit. But it is totally up to you to start eating healthy food as a way of life or continue with your unhealthy eating habit.

What to do about it? Again, do it one step at a time. Do you have a craving for ice cream everyday? How about taking a low fat ice cream treat once every 2 days for a start? Do you take carbonated drinks everyday? How about replacing carbonated drinks with non-carbonated ones? Before you know it, you won’t even be craving for that can of Coke or Pepsi anymore.

Excuse #7 – Healthy food does not fill my appetite

It is a myth to say healthy food does not make you full. In fact, eating foods with with lots of fibre and low glycemic index (GI) will make you feel full for a longer period. Conversely, processed and junk foods usually have high GI and will burn so quickly that you will feel hungry for another serving of poor nutrition food before you know it.

What to do about it? Take food with high amount of fibers and lean proteins as they will fill your appetite easily and keeping you energized for hours.
