Top 5 Healthy Toronto Eats

After living in Sydney for a while, I've noticed just how lacking Toronto is for healthy restaurants..but there are a few gems when you look! I spent the majority of life in the TDot and lived in Toronto for just over 20 years. I feel like I know the city inside out. Being such a food lover I've put together with my top 5 healthy restaurants


Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner | GF, DF, V options | Dine In, Takeout | Casual

The Beet strives to be an eco-friendly and support local farmers by providing fresh, local organic produce, whenever possible. Menu items are super healthy and whether you’re a vegetarian, vegan or omnivore, you’ll get your needs met. Check out their daily specials to try something new

Favourite Item: Warm BBQ Chicken Wrap on a gluten-free wrap

2. Fresh Restaurant

Lunch & Dinner, Weekend Brunch | GF, DF, V options | Dine In, Takeout | Casual

Fresh is one of Toronto’s main places for vegan and vegetarian "fast food". They offer eat-in and takeout and prove that a plant based diet is anything but bland. Be sure to try their weekend brunch, but the regular menu also has so many tasty options. Lineups are common, but if you are in a rush their takeout is speedy and perfectly packed so no soggy vegetables. 

Tip: Note that some meals are large portions and can be very heavy on beans, nuts or sauces. You may want to share and just be aware of food quantities.
