13 GTA Restaurants For Healthy Moms To Visit
Are the holidays over yet? If you’re anything like me (and I hope you are), there’s been a bit of overindulging happening in the past week or two. You may also have had it up to here with cooking for large gatherings, so now is the perfect time to kill two birds with one stone: go out to eat something healthy! The Healthy Moms card has you covered in that department.
As promised, it’s time to share the places you can visit to get a delicious meal – whether you’re planning on eating out or taking out:
Fresh – This place has been a veggie favourite for nearly 20 years now, and with four locations to choose from, you can get some delicious takeout almost anywhere in the city. Find them in the Annex, Yonge & Eglinton, Queen & Spadina, and west Queen West.
Live – If you’ve tried and haven’t enjoyed eating raw food, then you haven’t experienced the amazing food that Live has to offer. This place made eating raw seem cool before everyone else caught on. For those not into the raw scene, you can find yummy cooked food on their menu as well! Find them in Liberty Village and Dupont & Spadina.
B. Good – When you’re looking for food with traceability, this restaurant has got you covered. On top of that, the meat is hormone-, antibiotic-, and preservative-free, and they’re great with dietary restrictions. Check out one of their five GTA locations: Yonge & Eglinton, Front Street, King Street, Oakville, and Queen West.
The Simple Kitchen – Craving a paleo meal, or just wanting to eat some quality gluten-free cuisine? This Roncevalles restaurant can help. Breakfast, lunch, and even some dinner options are available.
Thrive Organic Cafe – When your meals are certified by a holistic health coach, you’re allowed to brag a little. This café, with 2 locations in the GTA (Etobicoke and College & Bathurst), serves up healthy and delicious vegetarian, vegan, and raw food.
Doug's Public Kitchen – Eat-in, takeout, and drive-thru? Get some delicious vegan food at this incredibly convenient restaurant at Glencairn and the Allen!
Lazy Daisy's Cafe – If you’re in Little India, you need to check out this café’s award-winning breakfast sandwiches. This is a family-friendly joint, too, so bring the kids and let them play at the Thomas the Tank Engine table!
