Where to Shop
The Big Carrot
Practically a healthy store amusement park, The Big Carrot is huge and offers everything your little healthy heart desires. Certainly a must see in Toronto.
The Healthy Butcher
Not only do they have high quality organic meat, but they also have one incredibly knowledgeable staff that is right there to help you.
St. Lawrence Market
Probably one of my favourite places to browse, especially in the warmer months when you have the opportunity to catch some rays as you feast on some seafood goodness. A must-see in Toronto.
Sexy Eat & Drinks
If you’re looking for some very sexy food, definitely check out Cruda Cafe located at the downstairs level of St. Lawrence market. They’re friendly, the food is delicious…especially the desserts!
Live Organic Food Bar
This almost raw restaurant is unbelievable and their adorable patio makes it even lovelier in the summer. Eat and feel nourished and sip on some tasty juice, organic beer or wine.
Nestled in Corktown, this little gem is a favourite of mine. I’ll sit, write, sip on some tea and eat a little goodness with a pickled side to top it off. So yummy, so good.
I love this adorable place. Salmon pink walls, marble tables, soft lighting and excellent wine, this is certainly a favourite of mine to relax with a bunch of girls or on a first date.
Amazing tea selection, plus the best tea pot and cup variety I’ve seen in the city. Favourite teas of mine include: mate chino and black vanilla. Yum!
Funky and very cool, David’s tea redefines how we look at tea. Some of their locations even include an adorable front patio. Favourite teas of mine include: Creme Caramel Rooibos and Chocolate Mint Mate.
A recipe journal by Heidi Swanson who writes about the recipes that intersect her life, travels, and everyday interests. Her food photography is beautiful and her recipes even more so.
One Lucky Duck
Owned by the beautiful Sarma Melngailis, a woman who continually inspires me and never stops. I visited One Lucky Duck in NYC, but also love the strong online presence and the huge array of amazing products to buy.
The man who goes by the name of Avocado as well, I couldn’t resist throwing him in here. His passion for whole food is admirable and certainly worth a read.
The World’s Healthiest Foods
I love this site. It’s an incredible resource for information providing recipes and nutritional info on virtually every food. Amazing.
The Weston A. Price Foundation
Learn some crucial information from an organization that believes in whole foods and getting right down to basics. Weston Price’s work and research on the effects of processed food vs. whole food on the body is phenomenal, so have a look.
