Summary: - eat more vegetables, oily fish, nuts and coconut oil, fruits and water!


Did you open the curtains this morning and thought it was evening already? It isn’t that bad, but it is undeniable that the haze has taken over Singapore. What can we do about it? Not much. However, we can make sure that the haze won’t affect us too much. With the right diet you can beat the haze. We put together a list of foods that will help you to cope with the haze in Singapore at the moment. Stay healthy!
haze in singapore.

Oily Fish
Some nutritionists even go as far and call oily fish, such as salmon, mackerel and sardines, a superfood. What’s good in it you ask? Well, there is plenty of vitamin D, some vitamin B and protein – but there is more. Oily fish has omega-3 fatty acids – which is a particular type of fat that is extremely healthy. Hence, the idea of oily fish being a superfood. Besides fighting the haze, oily fish also helps to prevent cardiovascular disease, prostate cancer, age-related vision loss and dementia. It ain’t that bad.

2. Veggies
That oily fish and those tasty cuts in all their honour, but keeping up your veggies should really have priority. It doesn’t mean that they are mutually exclusive. Try to keep the percentage of veggies up at around 70% – there is still room for some meat in your daily diet. If you are really do need a lot of meat, then try at least to buy organic ones. As there is a huge variety of vegetables available, you surely won’t be bored by what is on offer.

3. Nuts and Coconut Oil
Coconut oil has a unique combination of fatty acids that your body doesn’t really get from anywhere else. Try to consume about 1-2 tablespoons every day. It is also no secret that nuts have huge health benefits. Brazil nuts for example range among the healthiest in the world. No matter whether almonds, cashews, pumpkinseeds, sunflower seeds and walnuts. You can go nuts about the haze in Singapore – quite literally.

4. Fruits
This one doesn’t harm anyone. Keeping your vitamin intake high is extremely important, has may benefits and will give you enough strength for your day. No mater whether lemon, watermelon, papaya, pineapple or durian – all of these fruits are available in excess on our normally beautiful island. An alternative might a freshly made juice or smoothy.
Try to avoid the fruit juice from the store though. The pasteurisation process destroys a lot of vitamins and enzymes. Juice is perfect for you, as it delivers vitamins, minerals and enzymes to the blood stream rather fast. Your body can use all of them and so start repairing your cells.

5. Filtered Water
Keep hydrated as much as you can. One really can’t mention this point often enough. Besides keeping your blood circulated, it also keeps your skins healthy. As the skin is constantly exposed to the haze, you have to do your best to keep your skin healthy. It also improves the entire circulation in your body. Keep the water intake high and haze out of your system.

Yes, must take in more fluids to flush out the bad stuff. Also taking in more vit C supplements. Lots of my friends getting sick.  :'(
The name ShuperStar is derived from the words Shoe (“Shu”) and Superstar, because we want everyone who wears our shoes to be the star attraction – a ShuperStar!
