Portion is huge with thick cuts of lotus root , pumpkin , okra , eggplant , Enoki & seaweed . Really gd, like I wld choose this over Tenjin good ...

Simple Breakie at @WoodlandsSD with
Hot Chocolate 🍫 (S$6)
Nut πŸ₯œ Butter + Honey 🍯 + Sea 🌊 Salt Toast (S$3.50)
Sage Cream Cheese πŸ§€ + Berry Compote (S$4) ~
The cream cheese gave the crusty chewy toast a savoury taste instead of the sweet and sour taste which I'm expecting from the berry.
The sea salt enhanced the nut butter taste.
Can't help wishing that the hot chocolate could be richer.

OK, I have to be honest. I am not into healthy food especially those that are "hard core" if you know what I mean. But because August was my birthday month, I'd spoiled myself with far too many rich meals. Inevitably, guilt set in. So I wanted to "eat clean" to balance out those indulgences but had trouble locating a place to go. As fate would have it, I was invited by Word Of Mouth P.R. to a tasting at Wholesome Savour - a vegan and gluten-free eatery in Palais Renaissance. It seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something πŸ˜†
Admittedly, I was a tad worried because I generally like my food unhealthily delicious ("more pork lard please"). Hence, my secret fear was their food would bore me. However, the dishes I had, turned out to be actually much tastier than I'd anticipated. What a pleasant shocker!
It helped that while waiting, I learned from the friendly owner Jason Fong, so much about the company's approach and philosophy to food, as well as their on-site high-tech preparation methods.
Only ingredients with the highest amount of nuitrients make the cut and they use alkaline water in everything too. What's more, nothing, and I mean nothing, is "cooked" at temperatures above 46 degrees celsius. So the benefits of everything, from vegetable to nut, and spice to grain, are retained at their maximum.
You would think that prices would be exorbitant with all that effort but nope. The Smoothie Bowls pictured above were listed as $10++ each (I especially loved the one with housemade almond milk, bananas, berries and crunchy "green-ola"), while "The Savour BLT" with avocado, an ingenious "bacon" made from coconut, fresh vegetables and lemon cream sandwiched between onion and sunflower seed "bread", cost only $15++.
The strawberries-covered Hangover "Bread" (also $15++) reminded me of a dense alcohol-free fruitcake. Accompanying it were the most amazing cinnamon coconut almond butter, fermented cashew macadamia yogurt and berry-chia jelly - all made in-house naturally.
I also realised how filling these ultra healthy dishes were as the hungry pangs didn't strike till many hours later.

Haven't had many thunder tea rice(s?) so I'm not the best judge but I think this was balanced both in taste and texture. The small is pretty big already so idk how big the 'normal' ($7) would be πŸ˜‚

A stalwart in the world of healthy eating, Real Food is wholly committed to bringing honest to goodness vegetarian food to the public. It must be on the right track, judging by the constant crowds as well as the restaurant's steady expansion, including to Malaysia. The Orchard Central outlet is one of our favourites, both for convenience as well as the spacious grounds. The food menu has changed little over the years, and includes many options for diners with soy, wheat and gluten restrictions. Most importantly, the food tastes great and prices are fair! Featuring a spice-filled broth made using soymilk, the Curry Soup Noodles ($12.80) are tasty and easy on the waistline. Other classics include the Organic Mushroom Aglio Olio ($10.80), the zingy Fruit Rojak ($7.50) and the hearty vegetable-filled dumplings, which you can enjoy in the Dumpling Soup ($9.50), in the Dumpling Noodles Dry ($10.80) or Fried ($9.80). If pizzas are on the menu, order without hesitation. The housemade pizza base uses wild yeast, and the Mushroom Pizza ($16) is our top pick for its cheesy, garlicky and umami flavours. On your way out, pop by their grocer's corner to stock your pantry with healthy bites ranging from fresh produce to organic snacks.
Avg Price: $25 per person

Avocado and coconut is a pretty ingenious combination. This dessert drink was creamy yet not too rich. However, I'd have liked it to be even less sweet. I asked for reduced sugar however I still felt like it was too much after a while. Definitely opting for the no sugar option next time.

The crumbly choux held the delectably roasty vegetables - including one very deep-breathing, husky-voiced Brussels Sprout - in an unexpectedly poignant embrace. 4/5
