Ever since I have been diligently eating healthy, I kept saying “why can’t there be healthy fast food restaurants?”
Well, it’s finally here and it’s called “HealthFare“. It seems to be a Canadian franchise and one just opened up in Burnaby, British Columbia at Market Crossing which is on Marine Drive and Byrne Road.
The owner, Jenny Saini, warmly greets you and helps you make a selection. She just opened the restaurant in February 2013.
I had their Chicken, Peanut & Lime rice bowl but substituted the chicken with tofu instead, and also some curry lentil soup and a frozen yogurt – all wonderful, especially the yogurt!
It’s a bit pricey, but I’m OK with that because I applaud the concept. When business owners are passionate and care about their customers I think that provides high value.
I wish Jenny all the best and congratulations on forging the way for healthy fast food options! Hopefully we will see this as a trend across Canada and the U.S.
