1) FOOD VICE: MILK CHOCALATE
SWAP WITH: DARK CHOCOLATE
= dark chocolate is a deep,rich brown due to the high amounts of cocoa,while milk
chocolate is a lighter shade of brown,indicating the added milk. dark chocolate-
eaten in moderation-packs a higher antioxidant punch than its milk counterpart.
2) FOOD VICE: WHITE RICE
SWAP WITH: BROWN RICE
= white rice, asia's favorite food,is low in fat,cholestrol and sodium.but the polishing
process that makes it pearly white also strips it of valueable vitamins and fibre.
brown rice,which is unpolished,has higher content of fibre,vitamin B1 and B3,
magnesium and important energy-giving nutrients.
3) FOOD VICE: ROTI CANAI
SWAP WITH: TOSAI
= roti canai is a reglar feature on our menus,with many heading for a bite a few times
a day. a slice of roti canai contains 300 calories,which is 15 percent of our daily
recommented calorie intake. compare that with a slice of tosai,which only
contains 140 calories and it's easy to see why it's a healthier pick
4) FOOD VICE: SWEET SNACKS
SWAP WITH: DRIED FRUITS AND NUTS
= let's face it: most of us have a sweet stash in our drawers for a quick energy boost
during the day. unfortunately,the sugar only offers a temporary high. opt for dried
fruits which are equally,if not,sweeter than fresh fruits,and last longer. nuts pack
a punch in vitamins and fibre too!
