Life is busy. Few of us have time to cook (never mind shop for) three nutritious meals a day. This is
where convenience foods can come in very handy. But does this mean you’re trading in flavour and
freshness for the convenience of grabbing a hot meal to go? And do you need to set your healthy
eating habits aside when you sit down at a restaurant table?
At Simply Asia, there are no trade-offs. We offer a refreshing combination of convenience food
that’s loaded with flavour and created from fresh, locally-produced ingredients. Every dish is made
to order using healthy methods. We also have a great selection of vegetarian and vegan options, so
you can maintain your lifestyle and dietary choices on the go!
A closer look at our healthy ingredients.
We understand that you care about what you eat, so we’re unpacking a few of our most popular
dishes and giving you the intel on why their ingredients are so healthy for you.
514 – Roasted Chilli Paste and Cashew Nut Noodles:
This moreish meal is packed with anti-oxidant rich peppers, which are an excellent source of
vitamin B6 and support healthy night vision. It also contains cashew nuts, which boast high
levels of iron, magnesium, zinc, copper, phosphorus and manganese. They’re also a source
of monounsaturated fat – which supports healthy levels of good cholesterol.
505 – Sweet Soya Noodles:
This dish is made with fresh cauliflower, which maintains healthy bones, helps with
detoxifying the body, assists in reducing high blood pressure, supports the immune system
and reduces the risk of cancer. It’s also full of leafy green spinach – a superfood that’s not
only low-kilojoule, but also brimming with nutrients that are important for skin, hair and
bone health; and provide protein, iron, vitamins, and minerals.

The soothing tofu that makes this dish so satisfying is an excellent source of protein and
contains all nine essential amino acids. It is also a valuable plant source of iron and calcium,

That’s a long list! And we haven’t even mentioned the bean sprouts yet, which contain
nutrients that help to reduce stress, support eye health and build strong bones.
309 – Roasted Chilli Paste Stir Fry:
Chilli, a key ingredient in this dish, gives you a real health kick. Just a few of the benefits we
have space to mention here include relieving, inflammation, pain and congestion, while
boosting the immune system. And the sulphur compounds in the garlic included in this dish
also support the immune system, while improving blood pressure and lowering cholesterol
levels (when enjoyed in high doses).

The mushrooms that make this soup sing with flavour are also packed with nutritional value.
They’re low in calories and provide fibre and protein (ideal for plant-based diets). They also
provide many important nutrients including B vitamins, selenium, potassium, copper and
vitamin D (particularly when exposed to the sun). And we mustn’t forget the lemongrass –
which has many potential health benefits including lowering your cholesterol and preventing
cancer. Traditional medicine from around the world has used lemongrass to treat diarrhoea
and relieve fevers.

The spring onions in this dish are not only crunchy and zingy, but also beneficial for
cardiovascular health. Why? Because they lower the oxidation of cholesterol and reduce the

against cold and flu. The lemon juice we squeeze in liberally is high in vitamin C and may also
be useful for heart and digestive health, weight control and preventing kidney stones.
