Probably The Most Healthy Restaurants In Toronto

Toronto makes healthy food yummy.

Eating right can be difficult. Especially when you're forcing yourself to eat that homemade caesar salad while your friends devour McDonalds. Lucky for us, Toronto provides us with many healthy options to choose from, so you don't have to compromise your healthy diet and give into temptation. You work hard at the gym, so you might as well eat food that tastes great and shows your gains.

1. Rawlicious

Rawlicious focuses on simple dishes that are prepared with fresh, organic ingredients. The restaurant is located in The Junction, and has a relaxed, 'zen' vibe. The restaurant is adorned with super-comfy seating, great artwork, and a lovely backyard patio. The Nori Rolls are made using alfalfa sprouts instead of rice, and is stocked full of fresh veggies, avocado and marinated mushrooms.

3. Guu Izakaya

You can never go wrong with Japanese food. The Kinka family currently owns a whopping 7 restaurants (including Guu Izakaya) in Toronto, so you could say they know what they're doing when it comes to food. With the use of fresh ingredients and some of the most beautiful plating styles in the city, Guu is clearly a place of unique interest.

4. Hibiscus

Hibiscus has a small, all-vegan menu consisting of soups, salads, and savoury/sweet crepes. If you enjoy variety then this is the place to be; Hibiscus updates their menu daily to keep up with the refined palettes of their customers. It's also worth mentioning that they have delicious vegan ice creams with gluten-free cones.

5. Annapurna

Indian food may be one of the first things that comes to mind when you think of healthy eating. Annapurna embraces the authentic vegetarian side of South Indian cuisine. Not only is the food delicious and healthy, but the restaurant offers an immensely peaceful environment to eat in. They have a no-cellphone policy, and calming sitar music to help you unplug, relax, and enjoy some grub. I highly suggest the masala dosa and idli.

6. Cultures

Though Cultures is a food chain, they still serve wholesome and delicious food to health-conscious customers. Their use of familiar ingredients makes it easy for you to skip the burger and eat a chicken wrap instead.
