How often do we lament the need the shed a few pounds in hopes of fitting into that perfect body-con dress or skinny jeans? It’s easy to give in to sinful treats after a long work week but being healthy doesn’t have to be boring.

The king of all meals, sometimes it’s easy to disregard and skip breakfast altogether when we’re in a rush in the morning. If you have a tendency to hit the snooze button one too many times, then overnight oats make for a brilliant breakfast solution. Not only is it nutritional, you can also customize it by adding your favorite fruits and nuts for more flavor. Check out these foolproof recipes by Quaker Oats to get started.

They carry an array of refreshing fun concoctions in Instagram-worthy bottles that will keep you coming back for more.

Last but not least, if you’re on the lookout for novel breakfast spreads to accompany your confectionery every morning, look no further than GSH Conserves. Despite its clinical sounding name (reminds of us of a certain local hospital), their products couldn’t be further than that. A Singapore-based company, Spread by GSH Conserves is a line of jams and condiments that celebrates the greatness of seasonal produce that we can find in our region. Stocked at some of the most popular establishments (think Naiise and Jones the Grocer), they aim to reduce wastage and “food miles”, aka the distance our food travels before it reaches our dinner plates. If the whole notion of healthy living overwhelms you, purchasing one of their spreads is an economical and fuss-free way to buy into that lifestyle.
