Fresh fruit to make juices | IG @sejuicedvancouver
Vancouver’s very own Sejuiced is a one of Vancouver’s oldest juice bars! This cozy café is located in Kitsilano and has a delicious array of healthy grain and nut bars and baked sweets to get you up and about in the morning. Enjoy creating your personal mix of vibrant veg and fresh fruits to blend up and take-away. We love the Zinger, made with fresh ginger to get revved up.
Acai Bowl | IG @taoorganics
In 2003, Tao Organics was born through the realization that certain foods were just not cutting it for our bodies. Agathe, the creator of Tao, decided to change her diet with raw vegan cuisine. From the switch, she noticeably saw the change in her body: more energy and overall health. She then decided to share with Vancouver the power of fueling your body with proper ingredients. She opened a café to serve a menu that better serves everyone who walks through her door. Patrons can also participate in creative cooking lessons – find more details on their website.
