We should keep the percentage of our veggie consumption up at around seventy percent. The rest will be allocated to meats. If we consider meats, we should at least purchase organic ones.
  • Oily fish: Experts say that oily fishes can make a difference at the end of the day. Oily fishes like mackerel, salmon and sardines contain vitamin D, vitamin B and protein. It does not end there because oily fishes also contain omega-3 fatty acids which are enormously healthy.


  • Fruits: Fruits should never be forgotten. Eating fruits will not harm us. In fact, fruits will give us enough strength to last our day especially when there is haze. No matter what we consider, there are aplenty here in Singapore. We can also consider fresh juices but never the processed ones.
