We’ve officially survived another holiday season, which means it’s time to start bracing for the saddest day of the year. “Blue Monday,” which occurs on January 20, is a date widely recognized as the most depressing day of the entire calendar year. If you’re a Torontonian looking for a way to beat those winter blues, then we might have the perfect Toronto restaurants for you.\nOpenTable has released a list of restaurants that are supposed to help residents of the GTA stay in their happy place during these trying times.\nThe online restaurant-reservation service has compiled a list of local eateries that serve delicious and nutritious meals that actually help shake off your seasonal sadness. The best part is all you have to do is eat.\nAccording to OpenTable, around 15% of Canadians are affected by seasonal depression every year, with most being affected during the country’s long and cold winter months.\nHowever, OpenTable states that those Monday blues can be curbed with a little bit of healthy food.\n“There are ways to remedy these symptoms, and a healthy diet is one of them. Research has linked a healthy diet – including a high intake of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish – to a range of health benefits," the company told Narcity.\nView this post on Instagram @freshrestaurants’s #FreshOnFront location has decor that’s almost as elegant as their giant piles of nachos.
