10 Healthy Restaurants That Won't Break Your New Year's Resolutions

There are many reasons to hibernate come January but eating healthy is 100% not one of them. Toronto is bursting with amazing healthy eateries so delicious you won’t believe they’re compliant with your new year's goals. 

No sad salads found here! These restaurants know how to pack a nutrient-dense punch using quality ingredients while making things taste insanely good. Healthy eating doesn’t need to mean bland uninspired dishes. These places do not skimp on flavour.

Some of the spots are vegan, some gluten-free, others are organic and some use only local ingredients -- but regardless of the labels we put on them, we know you’ll leave any one of these places feeling energized and awesome. 

Here are 10 of our favourite healthy eateries in the city.

3401 Dufferin St unit 601 b

by CHLOE

Toronto’s newest spot for plant-based eats. This popular New York eatery has finally made its way to Toronto. The vegan fast-casual spot serves up delicious guac burgers with fiery chipotle aioli, avocado pasta salad and get this -- their fries are air-baked!

367 King St W

Calii Love

Calii Love

Our favourite place to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown and grab a smoothie. Calii love really knows how to bring the sunshine into dreary Toronto winters. Grab a superfood packed smoothie bowl or build your own nutrient-dense salad.

573 King St E

Impact Kitchen

Impact Kitchen

Your go-to for takeout when you want to prioritize convenience without sacrificing health. With 3 locations in Toronto, this gluten-free joint with many paleo and vegan options serves up delicious bowls, MCT oil blended coffees and refined-sugar-free treats. We love their crispy almond-flour crusted chicken tenders and their hero power bowl.

550 Bayview Ave

Cafe Belong

Cafe Belong

With a menu that changes seasonally to utilize local vendors, there is no end to the creativity that Cafe Belong pulls off with sustainable and organic food. Currently, their menu features lots of buttery roasted root vegetables, coconut yogurt parfaits and an amazing (certified Ocean Wise) smoked trout salad.

97 Harbord St

Flock Rotisserie + Greens

Flock Rotisserie + Greens

In the mood for something other than bland chicken and steamed greens? Flock has got you covered. Serving up juicy rotisserie chicken and creative sides, the notion you're eating healthy will slip your mind. Try the harvest flock salad packed with roasted veggies in a pumpkin-sage vinaigrette or the seasonal roasted veggies in a nutty chimichurri sauce.

303 King St W

District Eatery

District Eatery

The perfect spot for a night out with friends: Clean eating and craft cocktails (plus their house wine is $1 per ounce). You’ll find things on the menu like zucchini noodles, truffled brussels sprouts and superfood fish and chips, comprised of coconut-crusted haddock with a side of root vegetables.

793 Bathurst St

Mugi

Mugi

Easy Thai takeout but made vegan. This casual spot serves up delicious plant-based Thai classics. Their use of traditional spice blends elevates the flavour in every dish to something special. Try their jackfruit curry with ginger and crispy shallots.

2968 Dundas St W

The Beet Organic Kitchen

The Beet Organic Kitchen

Our favourite go-to spot in the Junction for organic food, sustainable packaging and decor made entirely of reclaimed items. All of their eggs, meat, cheese and produce are certified organic and they make sure to support local farmers whenever possible. We love anything on their brunch menu but specifically their avocado tartine: two eggs on black sourdough with creamy avocado, vegan aioli, crispy pickled onions and sprouts.

1122 Queen St W

Hello 123

Hello 123

Making eating your vegetables fun since 2018. Try their loaded sweet potato (make sure you add smashed avocado) or the probiotic-loaded kimchi burger. Even their sautéed veggies are made appealing with the addition of ginger-soy marinade, lots of lemon and caesar dip.

1221 Bay St

Planta

Planta

The ultimate plant-based spot for health-conscious Torontonians. We're talking crispy “crab" cakes made out of hearts of palm, coconut ceviche with creamy avocado, crispy kelp caesar salad and pizzas topped with various aged cashew cheeses. Our mouths are watering!
