Say hi to Fit Foodie, a newly-opened stall at Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Makan Place that offers affordable, customisable bowls.
For Herman, 22, the owner, it is all about providing balanced meals to the health-conscious crowd in NP.
The bowls are high in protein and fibre, with ample carbohydrates to even it all out. He said: “I do a lot of sports, and in the past we always had difficulties finding the right food because not all foods are good for bodybuilding.”
Customers fill up an order chit to build their own bowl. Pick from four sizes: Vegan ($3.90), Fit ($4.90), Fitter ($5.90), and Fittest ($6.90). What they lack in the creativity in their names, they make up for in variety of ingredients.
The bases available are from brown rice, sweet potato mash, quinoa, romaine lettuce and whole-grain fusilli. Choices of proteins range from ginger soy tilapia to lemon garlic thyme chicken breast.
There are over 15 supplements and toppings to choose from, including some unique ones like honey glazed tempeh, sautéed asparagus and grated coconut. Lastly, top it all off with one of their in-house sauces for a wholesome meal.
