Young people today will never appreciate just how hard it was to be a vegan or vegetarian prior to the 2000’s. Dedicated restaurants were few and far between and stores offered precious little in the way of vegetarian groceries, gluten-free foods, or anything that would benefit a healthy diet.

It’s gotten so much easier to live healthy, whether you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or neither. Even the food itself has gotten much better with the advent of things like the impossible burger.

Mississauga is a food city; it’s something we’re pretty darn proud of. And you couldn’t boast that moniker if you didn’t offer food for everyone. That’s why today we want to spotlight some places in the city where you can buy healthy foods. And we’re not talking restaurants like Raw Aura or Nourish Moi, today we’re talking grocery stores and food markets. So let’s not waste any more time, let’s just get to it.
