For the healthy foodies out there, make the trip to Pemberton to eat at Solfeggio – lunch or dinner. This place is the real deal when it come to whole foods.
2016 update > In Dec 2015, a fire in the building that housed Solfeggio closed Solfeggio restaurant temporarily (they hope to open in the spring) but you can find food from Solfeggio at Olives Community Market, the Naked Sprout and the cafe at Scandinave Spa in Whistler (you can go to the cafe without paying to go into the spa – but I do highly recommend the spa too!)
Have you had a chance to try out the little Cafe in The Lost Lake PassivHaus yet? A nice addition to the Whistler healthy eating scene. They offer local and organic products and have gluten free options. they have grilled paninis and wraps as well as in shop made salsa and hummus for snack plates. Their food is nitrate and preservative free.
OK, this is a little out of scope for this blog, but Veg News recently published some great vegan food choices in Vancouver. Some if them aren’t the healthiest (donuts!), but some are for sure, And it’s nice to see East is East on the list – definitely one of my favourite Vancouver restaurants for healthy food.
