Eating healthy food is an important part of living a healthy life. Ensuring that you don’t consume too much sugar and are aware of the dangers and impact of it are also really important. As such picking food that is low in sugar and other unhealthy ingredients can be a challenge. However, if you are a fan of Chinese food, then there are plenty of delicious healthy options and you can order. Deliveroo brings Chinese from some of the best restaurants around Singapore directly to your doorstep.

Steamed Veggie Dumplings

Steamed Veggie Dumplings are really tasty and come in at around 40 calories each. You can vary the vegetables in the dumplings and this changes up the taste so that it never gets boring. Steaming vegetables is a great healthy, yet delicious way to cook vegetables. It is also easy and can be prepared at home without a great deal of preparation. A lot of Chinese food is so yummy because they steam a lot of their food and the same is true for these dumplings, just don’t eat too many of them.

Steamed Shrimp or Chicken and Vegetables

Both shrimp and chicken are lean meat. This means that they don’t have a lot of unhealthy fan on them. Combined with the vegetables and you have a healthy, low sugar, low calorie meal. This meal also includes protein which will keep you fuller for longer and promotes muscle growth and maintenance, too. By steaming instead of frying the chicken or shrimp you save on calories, but don’t lose any of the flavour either.

Moo Goo Gai Pan

This delicious course is wonderfully healthy and packed with flavour. It is made from sauted vegetables, mushrooms, spices and sliced chicken. The special Chinese spices ensure that this meal doesn’t disappoint while also letting it remain super healthy. A meal like this can come in as low as 275 calories and doesn’t need any added sugar. Sometimes the chicken can be cubed, but it depends of who is making the dish and won’t affect how good the dish is or how healthy either.

Veggie Spring Rolls

Spring rolls are amazing. The meat ones can be a little calorific depending on how they are made, but the vegetable ones are generally low in both sugar and calories. These rolls of delicious delights can contain as little as 80 calories each, but are just packed with flavour. If you are already having a low sugar and calorie main course, then feel free to treat yourself to one or two of these awesome starters.
