Feel Good Guru Toronto, Ontario
We picked a great day to visit Feel Good Guru in Toronto Ontario! It was warm and sunny and when we arrived the raw food cafe was buzzing with good energy and several customers.
We introduced ourselves to one of the lovely staff members and she quickly left to find Moira Nordholt, the owner of Feel Good Guru.
Moira explained a little bit about the concept of Feel Good Guru which is clear to see hanging on the inside wall from floor to ceiling.
Raw, Organic, Vegan, Gluten Free. What’s not to love?
We love finding places like Feel Good Guru. Happy people serving delicious, and nourishing kind food.
So what did we have for lunch you ask?
I had the 1/2 Avo Sandwich and Tokyo Toss Noodles and the Energizer
Avocado, cashew cheese, cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, market greens, house mustard, sea salt, pepper, and house grown sunflower sprouts, all lovingly wrapped in a live yam and sundried tomato bread.
Buckwheat noodles, spicy market greens, bok choy, marinated tempeh, red peppers, black sesame seeds, and maple shitake mushrooms in a sesame ginger dressing.
Fresh carrot, apple, and ginger juice
Everything was perfect. I loved the live yam and sundried tomato flat bread stuffed with so many fresh vegetables. And the noodles were light, and had a delicious sesame flavor. The Energizer was sweet and packed with ginger. Loved it! We really enjoy eating good nutritious food that satisfies our hunger but doesn’t leave us feeling full and unhealthy.
Cody thoroughly enjoyed the Feel Good Falafal and the Antioxidant I.V.
Sprouted chickpea and quinoa falafal balls in a live yam and red pepper wrap, stuffed with house made pickles, dill pickles, parsley, mixed greens, and micro greens, cukes, and tomatoes, drizzled in tahini garlic sauce.
Fresh grapefruit, apple, and pineapple juice
“This is one of the best falafals I have ever tasted, and I have had a lot of falafals”
The Antioxidant I.V. was full of grapefruit goodness! A fruit we haven’t had in over 17 months!
We couldn’t turn down dessert, so we sampled the Raw Gurumisu
Raw cacao nibs, and almonds, cocoa “cream” with raw cacao, coffee cream with a tiny hit of coffee from their friends next door at The White Squirrel, and whipped coconut cream. All lightly sweetened with maple syrup.
WOW. They were right. It blew our minds. Rich, and indulgent, with no guilt. We like that.
Moira was nice enough to send us home with a few more raw desserts to sample.
A raw vegan cinnamon bun made with walnuts, dates, cinnamon & coconut maple icing.
Feel Good Guru has an organic garden on the premises and a larger garden across the street. They even offer blankets so you can have a picnic across the street at Trinity Bellwoods Park and people watch. How cool is that?
Huge thanks to Feel Good Guru for one our first experiences with raw food. All of your food is beautiful and made with love and care.
“Our work is not work when we do what we love and love what we do. We believe in bowing deeply to the Feel Good Guru in you.
