Healthee-Go Green Go Healthy! #1

The day I visited Healthee was a sunny saturday, so EU and I decided to go to Kerrisdale to enjoy the welcome of spring ;)

Speaking of Kerrisdale, EU is definitely more familiar than I do because she passes by every day on her way to and from school. My impression to Kerrisdale? It is such a lovely place! I always enjoy spending time there.

Ok, let's move back to the food!

The interior is simple, designed with mainly green and white colours. Despite its small location, you will sure feel comfortable having a simple and delicious brunch/lunch/snack here.

I normally order their custom chopped salad/wrap. You first choose a bowl/whole wheat wrap, then choose the greens (spinach/romaine/mixed greens) you want. After that, you can choose 4 regular toppings (0.75 per additional toppings). Healthee has a large variety of toppings: veggies, fruits, nuts, proteins (e.g. beans, eggs). If you want to add some cheese for extra flavour, you can +$1 for each cheese topping.
Too much veggie? You can add a premium protein topping; the price depends on which topping you want. Last but not least, to give your salad a moist flavour, you need to pick a Healthee-Made dressing from their menu.

Too complicated? You can opt for thier feature salads and wraps.

Custom Made Wrap-n/a
  • I don't really remember the price but I think it's about $7
  • romaine, beets, black beans, tomatoes, red peppers with raspberry vinaigrette
  • sorry for the blurry photo, I hope you can see how the wrap looks inside
  • I can't rate this wrap because I didn't try it
  • it was not wrapped tightly, so EU had a hard time eating it
  • since it wasn't wrapped well, the dressing kept dripping from the wrap
  • each wrap comes with two slices of apples

Custom Made Wrap-6/6
  • same as the above wrap, it is about $7
  • spinach, beets, craisins, edamame, banana peppers with yoghurt & dill dressing
  • luckily, mine was wrapped tightly so I enjoyed it a lot!
  • every ingredient is fresh and they gave me an equal amount of everything
  • this was my first time trying craisins. The texture is like dry cranberries+dry raisins. But it's a bit hard for me, not really chewy.
  • yoghurt & dill dressing is not really strong
  • I like how Healthee serves the wrap to us with two slices of apples on the tray. Neat!
