Fit for Life coming to the Danforth

  1. I don't know if it's part of the same chain, but there are Fit for Life's in Commerce Court and BCE. They are a good option for a quick, healthy lunch in a food court - falafel, vegetarian supreme, chicken kabob in a pita, type of sandwich.

    1. Mediocre food court fare. Yes, you can eat healthy, but by the end of it you may want to kill yourself.

        lol, I agree it's mediocre and I doubt I would go out of my way for it on the Danforth, but I've never wanted to kill myself after eating a Vegetarian Supreme pita.

        Re the lentil soup that Millygirl mentions below, I've heard it's pretty good too, but I've never tried it.

        Basically, it's all good food court fair, when you want something simple and fairly healthy (I mean not THAT healthy, because the falafel is fried and the chicken kabobs sit in oil) and I add lots of hot sauce and I like the tabbouli salad that comes with most sandwiches.
        While I'm eating it, I don't even think of comparing it to good middle eastern food I can get at Sababa, Me Va Meh or Tov Li (the original at Bathurst and Steeles, not the one near Wilson).

      2. Agree with pescatarian, good for the food court, I am always happy when I see one. But not sure the quality and freshness of their kebabs can stand up to the Danforth. I mean I realise they're not Greek, but they're not really authentic or great Middle Eastern either.

          Apparently they are known for their lentil soup....

          1. re: millygirl

            I've always found the lentil soup too salty and leaves an aftertaste - it may just be the one I go to

            It's just ok for falafel

            The one at Cumberland Terrace is now offering tandoori chicken as well.

          3. I have only two words to offer about this new arrival: big deal.

            1. Any chance it was a JUICE for life instead? That would be more exciting!

                Unfortunately not. I'm pretty sure it said Fit for Life. In fact at first I thought it was another gym opening up. Speaking of juice, has anybody tried that little juice place on the side street across from Carrot Common, just up from Second Cup. Any good?

                Geez, too bad about Fit for Life. We need something new and exciting on the Danforth. I'm not sure what, but something. A Yogen Fruz would be nice, especially today. Actually I haven't had one of them in years but I've been thinking about them lately.

                  The little juice place is a bit cramped and dingy, but the juice is good.
