Vancouver Restaurants Offer Healthy Eating Options

salad-1812349_1280A strong advocate for healthy living, Dr. Ali Ghahary, often recommends patients introduce low-carb diets into their lifestyles. As a result, patients may sometimes find it challenging to order from restaurant menus.

If you’re trying to lose weight or are on a low-carb, low-calorie diet, finding healthy meal options at restaurants can be difficult. However, many fine-dining restaurants around Vancouver have made modifications their menus in recent years in effort to cater to individuals who have restricted diets, and even those who may have severe allergies.

Cactus Club Cafe, a popular restaurant in Vancouver and across various parts of Canada, offers diversified alternatives to help patrons make appropriate meal choices that are within their limitations. A common alternative that many restaurants offer are sweet potato fries which serve as a substitute to the normal french fry. Sweet potatoes carry fewer grams of fat and carbohydrates than regular potatoes, making sweet potato fries a popular appetizer choice when dining out.

Other great, healthy menu options at Cactus Club Cafe include the Tuna Tataki, Butternut Squash Soup and Edamame Beans.
