When life gets busy, eating well becomes one of those things that tends to takes a backseat, for most people. They start to give priority to convenience foods and move away from healthier food options. But luckily, I recently discovered the perfect, and healthy fast food restaurant that manages to make healthful eating convenient AND super easy! Meet Fresh Addicts. One of the latest Milton-based restaurants that caters to hungry mouths looking for better, healthier eating options.
Opened in 2014, Fresh Addicts is run by the husband and wife restauranteur duo, Anhtuan and Sokie. Their goal was to create a restaurant where people can have deliciously fresh and health-conscious meal without having to lift a finger in the kitchen.
The duo decided to open in Milton because there are so many busy families and couples in this town that could benefit from a healthy restaurant.
The menu at Fresh Addicts has everything you can imagine. From wraps, salads, grain bowls to fresh cold pressed juices. The cool thing is that the menu is very customizable to suit any dietary restrictions. Many of the menu items are gluten-free (and if they aren’t, they can be altered to be gluten-free) and accompanied by tonnes of vegan options. They even source organic produce from local Canadian farms. And the opportunistic omnivores and carnivores are just as welcome to anyone else, with salmon and chicken having their spot on the Fresh Addicts menu.
When they say Fresh, they mean fresh- almost all the menu items are made from scratch including soups, salad dressings, nut milks, almond butter, and their delicious coconut cream.
One of the most popular dish at Fresh Addicts is their famous Acai Bowls. Acai hails from South America, it is a berry that comes from the acai palm tree. Acai has been very popular in the last few years, gaining ground as one of the latest “super food” options given its antioxidant-rich properties. At Fresh Addicts, you can try two different acai bowls with fruits and granola. This is truly the perfect breakfast or snack.
Your imagination can go wild with how flexible the menu can be when you create your salads, wraps, grain bowls, and smoothies from the endless ingredients available- you can never get bored eating at Fresh Addicts.
Fresh Addicts also have an extensive line of cold-pressed juices that are made in-house daily with only the freshest ingredients. They even offer a one-day juice cleanse program.
This is a great place to go when you need a healthy kick after junk filled weekend or after an intense day at the gym. I love how Fresh Addicts have made eating healthy so easy for all the Milton folks! Go check it out. You will instantly feel healthier after one meal here. I sure as heck did.
Fresh Addicts is located at 71 Regional Rd 4 in Milton (Hwy 401 and James Snow Parkway).
