Leading a healthy lifestyle is not just about exercising, it also encompasses proper nutrition. We know the usual guidelines that doctors usually recommend, less salt, less sugar, lower in fat, more fruit and vegetables etc. But making such choices are not easy for most individuals would work the usual 9 to 5 job, especially those with busy schedules. But there are actually food vendors or outlets in our sunny Singapore that actually caters healthy foods.

Subway offers patrons a variety of affordable subs which are relatively healthy. They even have set meals ranging from $5-5.50 for those with a tighter budget. But, before you start ordering anything and everything from Subway, it is important to note that not ALL the items on their menu is actually healthy. For example, Subway offers patrons the option of getting cookies, brownies, chips or even sugary drinks. Individuals looking to order from Subway should stick to their “less than 6g of fat” subs and choose healthier snack options such as apple chips or yogurt.
