Today I wanted to share a list of Toronto bakeries, that offer options for those with intolerances and allergies. As a Nutritionist, I work with clients who have food allergies and intolerances, and part of my job is to help them enjoy a balanced diet without feeling deprived.
A huge part my philosophy and professional approach to nutrition is to focus on abundance, and NOT restriction. I believe it is important to indulge, and enjoy the foods you love- cake and pastries included! I personally LOVE baked goods ( A LOT), and love indulging.
I believe that no matter what your dietary preferences or ‘restrictions’ are, it is important to find foods that you can eat- that make you feel good on all the levels.
With that said, it may be difficult to indulge in the average bakery when you have food allergies or intolerances. The great news is that Toronto has some amazing bakeries with healthier choices, especially for those with allergies, intolerances and specific dietary preferences.
Below, I compiled a list of 5 bakeries in Toronto, which offer a variety of options for those with allergies and intolerances.
