Before this “quarantine life,” we loved sitting down for a lunch at Healthy Rabbit with friends and family, and soaking up the warm sun on one of their two patios. During this quarantine life, Healthy Rabbit on your front porch on a sunny day is a pretty amazing runner-up option. If you’re looking for gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, egg-free, cruelty-free, raw, vegetarian, vegan, or keto – or you just love fresh, healthy food regardless of the diet – then this is the spot for you.
Opened in fall 2015, Healthy Rabbit (105 Brant Ave.) is located in the heart of Brantford’s heritage district, and offers wholesome, nourishing, plant-based meals. Their dishes are full of fresh vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, and include the cleanest and greenest ingredients they can find to lessen their ecological footprint. This business strives to honour the earth, our farmers, and ourselves, and ensures that all of their products and practices are eco-friendly.
They are best known for their delicious bowls that come a la carte, or you can even create your own. Some of our favourites include the Chipotle Bowl, which is piled high with smoked coconut bacon, black beans, red cabbage, cucumber, avocado, pico de gallo, alfalfa sprouts, and a mild chipotle dressing, all on a bed of turmeric rice or quinoa and greens. We also love the Dojo Bowl, which includes delicious marinated shitake mushrooms, probiotic kimchi, nori, cucumber, avocado, carrots, and a creamy lime peanut dressing. Wash your delicious bowl down with their homemade kombucha, add a Wellness Shot, or enjoy a Latte Tonic, tea or coffee.
Need a faster meal option for your on-the-go lifestyle? Try one of their amazingly creative and wholesome Superfood Smoothies, such as their Sea Salt Caramel (dates, banana, orchid vanilla, wood vinegar, maple syrup, homemade coconut milk) or Hibiscus Raspberry (raspberries, hibiscus, mint, chlorophyll, bananas, dates).
Don’t forget to round your meal out with a house-made dessert free from refined-sugar. We can’t say enough about their almond or peanut butter cups, raw Nanaimo Bars, and Vanilla Chai Blondies.
