This small take-out operation serves up a daily variety of healthy and delicious vegan, flextarian and raw meals. This is the perfect address for those who are lactose intolerant or require a gluten-free diet. For organic meats and pulses look no further.
I was surprised to discover just how reasonable the prices were at Saveurs de vivre: detox juices and smoothies (16 oz) $5.95; vegetarian meals from $7.50; organic meat dishes from $9.00, and raw desserts from $4.95. You can order single, double or family-sized orders. They even have a "social" size for when you want to invite friends over and don't have time to cook.

Another little known fact, owners Lucie Boivin and her chef husband Pierre Sanglard offer cooking classes. Under chef Sanglard's direction, you will cook three different dishes and then eat your creations at the end of the afternoon course. I just walked by and the next class, May 19, from noon to 3 pm, is on preparing rabbit ($75 plus tax). La Presse has named Saveurs de vivre one of the five best places in Montreal for cooking classes. The take-out counter is located at 7901 Henri-Julien, corner Gounod, tel. 514-904-0521.
