Breakfast in Toronto doesn’t need to be such a gluttonous affair (although we certainly won’t judge if you want to stuff yourself full of pancakes or bacon ‘n eggers in the am.)

For a sweet, but superfood-rich morning meal, try a smoothie bowl! The big bowls of fruit puree dressed up like parfaits can be found on menus across the GTA.
