Healthy groceries at Jasons Deli
For 2020, many of us would have made new health or fitness-related goals. But with the festive season passing us by, it’s no surprise that we’ve already started to fall back on old habits. After all, one simply cannot turn away that jar of pineapple tarts.
But before you begin fretting over all the treats you’ve feasted on, here’s some good news. Jasons Deli has opened at ION Orchard with a selection of fresh and healthy ready-to-eat meals and snacks that you can pick up on your next grocery run.
Here are some food options you can expect:
Fresh ready-to-eat meals for convenience
Dashing for meetings, completing documents, and hitting deadlines – these are all situations an office worker would be familiar with.
But with the new Jasons Deli outlet being located in the middle of town, you can conveniently pop by during your lunch break to pick up your meal. All meals are ready-made with fresh ingredients, so you won’t have to worry about ingredients of poor quality in them.
Another option you can consider is the Power Bowl ($7.50) – a nutritious ready-to-eat vegan meal with side ingredients packed with protein, fibre and vitamins. Options you can consider include the Avocado Soy Rice, Beetroot Gnocchi, and Quinoa Falafel.
Poke and protein bowls are the quintessential healthy meal – and here, you can get one like the Smoked Salmon Poke Bowl for just $14.90 (U.P. $15.90). Alternatively, those of you who need to cleanse your palate after your meal can pick up one of these fruit cups from just $2.80.
Wide range of nuts and chips for office snacks
Things like biscuits and chocolates become especially enticing when we’re fighting to stay focused at work. Here, however, they have healthier alternatives to swap out your usual junk food with, such that you can snack away with free reign.
Instead of your favourite bag of chips, check out their range of fruit and veggie chips (from $3.50) instead. Flavours range from mango to kimchi – and the great thing is, they’re made without any oil or frying, so you don’t have to worry about saturated fats in it.
If you want a little more variety, come snag a bag of assorted healthy snacks at Alison’s Pantry, which hails all the way from New Zealand. You can take your pick from unsalted nuts, trail mixes, and various dried fruits. Prices will vary depending on the snack you choose – it starts from $1.99/100g for a bag of banana chips.
Apart from choosing and weighing your own snacks, you can also purchase pre-weighed snacks by the container.
Refreshing drinks to replace your BBTs
Mid-afternoon bubble teas are hard to resist, but if you’re worried over the impact of that little guilty pleasure, you might want to consider a healthier alternative instead.
Heavy lunches can take a toll on your stomach, so if you want to balance it out, try drinking up some kombucha instead. It comes loaded with probiotics to help with digestion, and you can snag a bottle from $5.65.
Other drinks you can snap up are the dairy-fermented kefir (from $9.95), as well as organic nut milk drinks (from $4.80) for the lactose-intolerant.
Choices of nut milk include oat, soy, and almond.
