Healthy Singapore: Project Paleo

After my morning yoga class at HOM Yoga, I stumbled across a relatively new stall in one of the local markets around the corner from Market Street!

With a fruit juice stand and local Singaporean food stalls as its neighbours, Project Paleo is a newish stall that serves paleo meals (aka. caveman diet food). The place was opened in July 2014 by a young Singaporean lady whom I met today. She said she had been paleo since about a year and prior to that, she only ate salads…

So what exactly is paleo? Basically: eating unprocessed foods that are mostly protein (meat) and greens. It also bans dairy, legumes, grains, oils, sugars, salt, alcohol and coffee. Crossfitters often stick to a paleo diet, which certainly helps them get ripped.

Breakfast is just S$4 and includes salad, nuts, two eggs and a protein of your choice: avocado, shrimp or pork. Lunch is S$8 and includes a main and two sides, and you can always add on more eggs, macadamia nuts, almonds or avocado if you need more substance. Check out the menu here.

A paleo brekkie

I ordered the breakfast with shrimp and it took about 10 minutes to prepare. The shrimp was very tasty (full of cajun bbq flavour), the eggs perfectly cooked with a gooey yolk, and the lettuce was dressed in a tangy vinaigrette. I paired this with an A B C (apple, beetroot, carrot) juice in the stall across from them and was pretty full. Highly recommended!
