Feed Your Soul and Nourish Your Body: Healthy Menus in Vancouver

Vancouver is a health nut's dream! A nourishing meal is never far, no matter what time of day it is and the type of cuisine you're craving. From fast food to leisurely fining dining experiences, there's something for everyone.

In the mood for Japanese? Shizen Ya makes brown rice sushi with organic and OceanWise ingredients. You won't find rolls made with a lot of mayo or dripping in sauces, the fresh flavors speak for themselves. Don't want rice? Order the greens roll that's packed with veggies. The miso soup is loaded with seaweed, cabbage and carrots so you can be sure you're getting your fill of veggies here.

Tractor Foods in Kitsilano makes fresh salads daily that won't give you the I-could-make-this-at-home guilt. The salads are full of flavor and mostly vegetarian, but you can add on grilled chicken, wild salmon, albacore tuna, avocado or tofu. The portions here are deceptively filling.

When we're celebrating something, it usually involves an indulgent meal and a special venue, but something healthy can be equally satisfying. YEW seafood + bar makes celebrating with a healthy meal a fine dining experience with their vegan lunch and dinner menu. Known for their impeccable service, it's very likely they can accommodate most dietary needs. Just ask!
