Calgary’s Top 5 Healthy Restaurants
Blue Star Diner, Calgary.
Since Shayne and Jodi Perrin opened Blue Star Diner in 2011, they have proven that even diner food can be good for you. The couple’s recipes combine local ingredients with classic diner favourites to create dishes that bring long lines to the door. “For us, healthy doesn’t necessarily mean low-fat or low-carb,” says Shayne Perrin. “It means good, honest food. We source our ingredients from local suppliers who value quality.”
You must order: The BSD Veggie Burger ($15) is vegan friendly and gluten-free. People Food supplies the “Know Meat” patties specifically for Blue Star.
Menu price range: $6-$25, with operations starting at 8 a.m. from Wednesday to Sunday (closed Monday and Tuesday).
