The bustle and hype of Singapore’s Central Business District mean your mid-day meal is a maddening rush of fellow office workers who are also trying to satiate their hungry bellies. This flurry of lunch-hour activity doesn’t mean you should fork out to pay for the easiest and quickest meal!

1. Chicken Teriyaki (Subway)
Really on a time crunch? Trust Subway to have plenty of sandwich options that will fit into your busy life. Their Chicken Teriyaki is made with succulent chunks of chicken, doused in tantalising teriyaki sauce and finished with a medley of crunchy greens of your choice!
With six different types of bread to choose from (and even salad and wrap selections), you’re not only spoilt for choice but eating healthier is made so much easier and convenient.
2. Salmon Soba (WHEAT Baumkuchen)
Let’s face it – eating bland food every day just to keep trim isn’t the most easy diet to stick to. WHEAT Baumkuchen does the trick to keep you satiated while bringing great flavours to your next meal.
Their Salmon Soba is a popular pick with its use of green soba, zesty yuzu sauce and perfectly grilled salmon. They also serve brown rice bowls and salads if you wish to switch things up, but whatever your choice, it’s sure to keep you coming back for more!
3. Wholegrain Duck Mee Kia (Yu Kee Duck Rice)
Yu Kee Duck Rice’s success boils down to its robust flavours with the use of over 10 different types of herbs and spices to create one of Singapore’s well-loved duck rice. They have just recently introduced a healthier twist of a classic favourite, by using wholegrain mee kia.
The Wholegrain Duck Mee Kia (from S$3) boasts all the familiar rich flavours of their original Duck Noodle dish, but now with added fibre. Asian food has never been more enticing!
4. Fish Maw Thick Soup With Seafood (Dian Xiao Er)
If you’re seeking a meal that’s nourishing and healthier, look no further than Dian Xiao Er’s Fish Maw Thick Soup With Seafood (S$17.60). It’s chockful of fresh ingredients that’ll satisfy your palate and comfort you like a good home-cooked meal.
The broth is savoury and is sure to warm up any hungry belly instantly! Make your next healthier meal a soupy one!
5. Black Soya Milk (Mr Bean)
Everyone is familiar with Mr Bean’s delightful soy-based treats to help with mid-day munchies! Now, you can get in your daily dose of plant-based protein with their Black Soya Milk (S$2.10).
Black soya beans are naturally higher in anti-oxidants, such as anthocyanin, as compared to regular soya beans. You can also choose the amount of sugar added, so you get to take control of your health. Drink up your nutrients in a tasty way!
6. Wholegrain Bee Hoon (Mr Teh Tarik Express)
When wanting to get your fill of simple local delights, healthier options aren’t typically at the top of one’s list of priorities. Famed as a go-to spot for late night dining, Mr Teh Tarik Express now offers diners the option to switch to Wholegrain Bee Hoon for that added dose of fibre that’ll fill you up.
If there were another reason to enjoy your favourite bee hoon dish, this would be it! Not forgetting to add a compliment of their signature teh/kopi tarik (comes with a no/lower in sugar option) to your bee hoon, too.
