A bakery outlet for Canada Bread Company Limited, McGavin's offers rows of loaves at wholesale prices. Fill bare cupboards or secret floorboard compartments with discount bread facing a dwindling shelf life, surplus bread from overzealous production lines, and fresh bread from local bakeries. McGavin's white or 100 per cent whole-wheat loaves (five loaves for $10.49) prove eminently slatherable. Other yeasty feasts include Dempster's Bagel six packs (three packs for $8.99), english muffin six packs (three packages for $6.99), and tortillas (three packages for $8.25). The popular discount special section, meanwhile, invites gluten gourmands to mix and match an ever-changing cast of short-dated dough bookends: every product, regardless of size, grain, or resemblance to Winston Churchill costs $1.39, and shoppers can mix and match an assortment of ten loaves for $12. Discount selections change daily and vary by location.

Stuart Gross’ passion for holistic healthcare stems from personal experience. After his young son spent many months enduring eczema that had not responded to conventional treatment, Gross took him to a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine who was able to clear the symptoms almost overnight. Gross had also been affected by the passing of his father, who died of preventable diabetes and heart disease at the age of 54, as well as the death of his father-in-law, which was a result of the side effects of the drugs he was taking for rheumatoid arthritis. Gross decided to give up his career as an auto mechanic and explore ways in which alternative therapies can heal people. He took a course in nutrition and started working in a health store. Using skills developed during his car-repair days, Gross then trained in various holistic assessment tools and equipment.

Today, Gross uses his knowledge and experience at Yaletown Holistics, where he offers services including oxygen therapy and a variety of homeopathic and nutritional supplements. Gross is also an advanced practitioner in electro-acupuncture according to Voll (EAV), a German-made diagnostic device designed to reveal bodily imbalances and conditions such as food sensitivities and heavy-metal toxicity. Guests also target impurities in a cozy, private infrared sauna, which can be used in conjunction with an iPod or personal yodeler to provide relaxing music.

One million probiotic cultures per gram sounds like a lot. That's the amount of the healthful stuff you'll ingest when eating frozen yogurt made from powdered mix. But when eating fro-yo made from fresh yogurt, as it's made at Qoola Frozen Yogurt Bar, you'll be consuming as many as 700 million probiotic cultures per gram. It's an astonishing increase, one that's complemented by other conscientious methods: Most of Qoola's products are fat-free, gluten-free, and certified kosher.

Qoola's low-calorie concoctions helps patrons feel better about indulging a bit at the toppings bar, where they can opt for lighter scoops of fresh fruit and flax seeds, or go all-out with crumbled candy bars and chocolate sauce. As committed to the health of the planet as it is to the health of its customers, Qoola uses biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable containers and utensils, and keeps its facility bright and sparkling with energy-efficient lighting and natural cleaning supplies. Qoola also proudly gives back to the community by supporting a number of charitable organizations.
