There’s something about that hint of Spring in the air that just makes you want to be a better person. Now that the snow has melted, and your parka has been packed away until next winter, the opportunities to get outside and explore have arisen. Why not make a healthy living pledge this Spring – there’s really no excuse not to. Especially if you live in the Yonge and Eglinton area. With plenty of juice bars, healthy eats, and places to get active, your new healthy life is just a few steps away.
It seems as though the trend of ‘juicing’ isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Thank goodness – because cold-pressed juice is absolutely delicious. Whether you’re looking to do a cleanse, or just enjoy a refreshing juice mid-afternoon, Yonge and Eglinton has some great juice bars to offer. Greenhouse Juice Co.‘s and The Raw Juice Company’s menues of yummy juices are a veritable rainbow of delight. As well, the juices offered at Fresh are notoriously incredible.
Looking to grab a healthy bite? You’re in luck, as the options for healthy eating nearby Yonge and Eglinton are endless. Salad Spa offers a simple menu of salad, soup, and sandwiches, but the fare is always fresh and delicious. If it’s Mediterranean cuisine you crave, look no further than Tabule who offer lots of healthy Middle Eastern meals. And then there’s Fresh, who cannot be ignored in this category. Their menu is enormous, meaning you’re sure to find something you want to try. With delicious bowls, juices, burgers…the list goes on…Fresh offers a variety of options for those looking to adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Any pledge for healthy living must include some sort of fitness and activity (Sorry, no escaping the truth!). Yonge and Eglinton has lots of places to work out, stretch, and bend yourself into shape. If you’re one of those people who loves the routine of going to the gym check out Ferris360 or Striation 6 for a solid work out. If you’re looking for more of a body-mind connection, then Stott Pilates Studio or Fireflow Yoga are both great choices to add to your active lifestyle. If none of these traditional fitness options appeal to you, perhaps you should give something more unconventional a try, like Surfset Toronto. Here you can workout your entire body with any of the 5 classes Surfset offers.
A big part of healthy living is getting outside! In this sedentary world we live in it’s important to get up and get moving – and to do so in one of the many great outdoor spaces Yonge and Eglinton has to offer is an ideal choice. Whether you’re taking your dog for a walk at Sherwood Park, reading at St. Clements Parkette, or going for a stroll at Eglinton Park, breathing in that fresh air will do you a world of good.
