Typically once summer comes around, and clothing becomes a bit more revealing some of us tend to start watching our diets. If you have been working hard the past few months creating your best version of yourself, you deserve a break from kale!
Once and a while it is important to treat yourself, and sometimes a bit of junk food will satisfy the cravings your green smoothies never could.
Celebrate cheat day by hitting up one of these mouthwatering locations!
Treat yo'self Toronto!
