Best Restaurants for Healthy Eating in Toronto

Many of us start the new year off with resolutions, one of which often includes “eat healthier.” What this means is different for everyone, but this list covers the basics. Check out how easy - and satisfying - it can be, and take that first step to reaching your goal.

Eggspectation Restaurant

1
200-483 Bay St, Toronto, ON M5G 2N7

Many studies show that having a nutritious breakfast is the best way to reduce overeating throughout the rest of the day, and often is a big part of weight loss plans. Eggs are packed with protein, so they keep you feeling full longer. Get the Three omega-3 enriched eggs mixed with mushrooms, onions, green and red peppers, bacon, sausage, ham and cheddar cheese, served and lyonnaise-style potatoes. To make it even healthier, substitute lyonnaise-style potatoes with fresh fruit for an extra $2.25, or a healthy mix of quinoa, flax and wheat bran sprinkled with cinnamon for $1.55.

Camrose Organic Eatery

Toronto, ON M4Y 2P2

If your concern is to pack in healthier ingredients into your day, Camros is the place to do it. With dishes that are 100% organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and freshly hand-made, 0% processed, 0% fried, and contain no preservatives, trans-fat, canned ingredients, white sugar, white salt and white flour, you can be secure in the knowledge that you're eating for your health.

iQ Food Co

2
100 Wellington St W, Toronto, ON M5K 1J3

Many lunch places claim to be healthy, but IQ Food Co. truly is. And not in that boring-I-want-to-rebel-with-a-donut kind of way. Their Smoothies alone are so jam-packed with good-for-you ingredients yet flavourful that you’ll finally see why people can have a smoothie and not be reaching for a chocolate bar five minutes later. Oozing with fresh flavours, you’ll be completely satisfied after finishing your Lima (oven roasted chicken, spicy corn, black beans, grape tomatoes, avocado, aged white cheddar, jalapeños, pickled cabbage, cilantro, lime juice, hot sauce on brown rice or quinoa).

Ouzeri Restaurant

3
500A Danforth Ave, Toronto, ON M4K 1P6

The Mediterranean Diet is in fact a way of life for many folks, with lots of seafood, whole grains, vegetables, olive oil and even a glass of red wine added in every once in a while. And the added bonus is that this way of eating reduces the risk of heart disease. So head to Ouzeri and eat to your heart’s content with fantastic fare such as: Melitzanosalata ($6.95) Roasted eggplant pureed with green herbs and spices, and Horta ($7.95) Steamed greens topped with extra virgin olive oil and lemon.
