The DeLish Bite

Lindsay Evans blogs about food, entertaining and her favourite recipes for Green Living.

With endless dinner and lunch options, it takes a good eye to find something a little bit different in a sea of the same. Something which not only offers healthy alternatives, but one that does so with style, ease, and a green focus. Enter Freshii, a Toronto-based eatery, which provides fast, healthy and delicious food, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Freshii, owner Matthew Corrin, has literally put healthy eating into your hands. When you enter these cool and comfortable franchises (located all across the city), your first step is to pick up a clipboard, where you make your selections for a bountiful salad, scrumptious wrap or delectable rice bowl. This system enables you to custom design your own meal. And, to make things even easier, the selections are placed in 3 categories: 24/7 (low fat, high fiber and full of nutrients, balance (carbs, protein and essential fats like omega 3's) and splurge (the goods). Additionally, they also sell the best low fat frozen yogurt with delicious toppings such as mango, strawberries, blueberries, almonds, dried cranberries and granola.

And if that weren't enough, they also offer delivery and catering and are doing their part to ensure that they are a company with a green focus...

Some of the things they are doing to go green: They use recyclable, post-consumer packaging. Their bowls are compostable and biodegradable. They recycle and reuse. They produce very little waste in our kitchen. They use energy efficient light bulbs. They try to buy organic whenever possible. Produce, meat, beverages, snacks and our food-safe cleaning products.
