Six Healthy Ways to Kick-Start Your Day In Toronto
One of the essential elements in keeping a healthy lifestyle is to kick-start the day with a well-balanced and nutritious breakfast. The most important meal of the day should never be overlooked (or skipped for that matter). To help you keep your good health goals on track, here are six healthy spots in Toronto you should check out.
367 King Street West, caliilove.com
If you’re looking for a healthy spot to please more than just your taste buds, then Calii Love is your place. From the healthy and well-balanced menu options to the bright and clean tropical-themed décor, this coffee and food bar will have you feeling inspired and energized.
The positive vibes extend to their menu where dishes and drinks have been named after favourable emotions. If you’re feeling “Loved,” you’ll find the combination of acaí, mango, blueberry, banana, strawberry, granola and coconut plain delightful.
Despite its rich blue hue, the “Dreamy” smoothie bowl will leave you anything but! The avocado, blue majik, banana and pineapple-based smoothie is mouthwatering.
FUEL + VILLAGE: 471 Church St.; FUEL + CANARY: 469 Front St. E,. fuelplus.ca
Don’t be fooled by the size of this health-conscious spot; what it lacks in space it makes up for in flavour. Serving local organic coffee (including the trendy butter coffee), healthy shakes, wraps and salads, Fuel + has a broad selection of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options for everyone.
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, you’ll find the chocolate breakfast bowl and peanut butter energy bites incredibly satisfying and almost guilt-free.
1240 Yonge St., nutbar.co
This quiet and serene corner in the heart of Summerhill serves nutrient-rich snacks, smoothies, toasts and bowls, making it the perfect place to drop in for a quick healthy bite. Pair a nutbar with a smoothie or juice and you have a well-rounded brekkie for the day!
Bolt Fresh Bar
1170 Queen St. W., boltfreshbar.com
If there’s one thing that sets Bolt apart from the rest of the acaí smoothie crowd, it’s that they top their parfaits with rich, silky and decadent in-house-made whipped coconut cream. Trust us when we say the extra $2.25 is worth the splurge.
222 Ossington Ave., thegrowop.ca
This vegetarian eatery and juice bar offers a wide range of options including grab-and-go cold pressed juices (made in-house!), all-natural truffles (the perfect pick-me-up) and mouthwatering acaí smoothie bowls.
The Good Press
87 Yorkville Ave., thegoodpress.ca
If you’re in the Yorkville area and looking for a quick healthy start to the day, then this is your place. With so many options available, don’t be surprised if you have trouble choosing what to order; everything is organic, raw and fresh.
Satisfy your acaí bowl cravings with one of five options; we recommend The Classic. Or try one of their delicious juices. Go for the Emerald City, for a healthy dose of greens, or indulge in Cashew Crave or Chocolate Milk.
