About me

Hi I’m Sheryl

Around a year plus ago, I got introduced to the concept of raw foods. What started out as simple detox became a life changing experience for me. (read more about that here).

Like most raw foodists, I’ve been slowly changing my diet to a vegan one. I started by eliminating meat last year and am trying to reduce my intake of dairy products. Its definately not easy having been a carnivore since young.,..still, slowly but surely=)

I started this blog as an online journal for myself and also to share this journey with others. Vegan food is not common in Singapore and Asia …and Raw cuisine, that’s almost unheard of! I’ve had quite a journey making my transition (still am!)…lots of self-education, recipe experimentations, temptations and of course,weird/puzzling looks from people around haha. I hope that this blog will be helpful to fellow S’poreans or anyone who is considering a change in diet, who want to eat healthier or who simply want to know more about raw foods. Because eating right can be easy and delicious =)

I’ve always avoided the kitchen when I was younger and used to joke that even cooking instant noodles was tough for me. But since I’ve started on this lifestyle, I literally LIVE and BREATHE kitchen! Life is pretty amazing isn’t it? You’re never too old to learn and discover new passions and things about yourself.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and maybe even get inspired along the way =)

Drop me a comment or email me at eatgreencake.sg@gmail.com  if you have any questions, sharings or reviews and I’ll get back to you!

Stay Rawsome

  1. Hey! I noticed that you like raw bars and that sorts, and they’re really hard to find and not to mention expensive in Singapore. /: You can try iherb.com. They’re much cheaper and they ship internationally. (: Hope this helps!

  3. Hi Sheryl! Really great to know that there are raw foodists around in Singapore! It’s really hard to find food places that sells raw food but I’m really glad to know that there are raw food cafes ard in Singapore through through your blog! Btw, where do you usually buy your spinach? and can we actually juice chinese spinach?

    • Hi Deenise, nice to meet another raw foodist from Singapore! So glad this community is growing=)) I normally buy my spinach from the organic sections in the supermarkets… try going to cold storage or fair price finest because the variety is better. YOu can also go to organic food stores like super nature, or higher end super markets like jasons. And yes, You’re basically able to juice most greens, including spinach!

  4. Hi Sheryl,

    Great to find your blog!
    I am also a Singaporean and have been drinking green smoothies for a few months now. Still an amateur but really enjoying it 🙂
    Have you tried blending Kai Lan or WaterCress before?

    Cheers,
    Joy

    • Hi Joy, so nice to meet another green-smoothie fan from Singapore! I’ve tried Kailan before but the vegetable taste is really strong so i either add less greens or up my fruits. I’ve never used water cress though. do let me know if you try watercress and what u think of it!

      • I’m still not that adventurous yet. But I like using Broccoli and Bok Choy… The taste isn’t tat strong… will let you know if I use watercress one day! haha… Thanks! 🙂

  5. Hi Sheryl,

    I’ve just red your blog about 80/10/10 diet, how could you hit your total daily calories intake ?Fruit and Veggies have fewer calories unless your binge for them. If do so, the cost of living might be huge different.

    However, I am proud of you that you did some research for vegan food, please remember to have cheat meal sometimes to replenish other vitamin 🙂

    Your fans,
    Woon

  6. Hey Shery! I just discovered your blog via your Raw Mango Cheesecake. I love your food philosophy and you’ve got some great recipes here! I’ve been vegan for almost two years. I’m not a raw vegan, but I do eat a lot of raw food. I’m so glad I discovered your blog, and like you say, “Stay Rawsome!” Celeste “The Honking Vegan” – honk, honk!

    • Hi Yvette! I fall back here and there too but all that matters is that we keep going=) I follow the 4 blogs you mentioned too and I especially love Angela from Oh she glows!! Good luck on ur vegan journey=)

  7. Hello! 🙂 Greetings from a fellow Singaporean. I’m no vegan, vegetarian or raw foodist but ever since I picked up yoga, I’m trying to lead a healthier lifestyle by incorporating more juices and green smoothies into my life. Have tried making my own green smoothies but they usually taste erm, urgh… mainly because I didn’t really follow any particular recipes. In fact, my family members think I’m weird (but they still love me) at times because of my willingness to drink green smoothies. Nonetheless, I have to say I really enjoy it because it gives me more energy and i can see that my skin looks more radiant now! Also, I would just like to say that I really admire you for taking the step to quit your comfortable and stable job to bring your passion for raw food to a deeper level. 🙂 Good job, girl! 🙂

    • Hello and thank you for your lovely message=) Glad that you’re trying out a healthier lifestyle…good for you! And yep, once you start drinking green smoothies, its really hard to stop. Try freezing your fruits and using really ripe fruits so that ur smoothies turn out cold, sweet and nice. I’ve actually moved back to a corporate job after my 1/2 year stint in the cafe.. hehe just reminded me its time to update my profile page=)
