She’s been keeping a low profile since revealing her secret battle with Lyme disease last month, but Avril Lavigne seems to be well on her way to recovery. Not only has she been busy recording new music in the studio, but it’s rumoured that the Canadian songstress was actually feeling well enough to enjoy one of her favourite foods – sushi – during an outing in Toronto last week.
The 30-year-old singer reportedly dined at Sake Bar Kushi (sometimes known as Kushi Izakaya), located Uptown at Yonge and Eglinton. Afterwards, the popular sushi joint shared a photo of the singer at their restaurant via social media.

Wearing an oversized plaid shirt and a black toque over her long, tousled blond hair, the pretty pop star looked happy and healthy in the snap.
“Thanks for come back!!! Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger” the sake bar captioned the photo on Instagram, leading fans to wonder if the “Hello Kitty” singer’s husband had also joined her for the meal.
Avril retweeted the photo, which seemed to confirm the enjoyable experience she had had there.
Hailing from Napanee, Ont., the pop-punk princess has spent a lot of time in Japan after cultivating a massive Japanese fanbase. She even paid tribute to Japanese culture and its cuisine with her “Hello Kitty” music video, which shows the singer sitting down for a meal of sushi and sake as she claps excitedly.
Though Avril has not confirmed her whereabouts in weeks, it’s thought that she may have returned to Toronto to work on new music.
The singer was forced to step out of the limelight after contracting a severe case of Lyme disease from a tick bite late last year, and after months of speculation and rumours over her health, she finally disclosed her illness to the public in early April.
“I believe that I will come out of this healthier and stronger than I was before,” she said. “I’ve gained a lot of perspective on my life. I’ve never had so much downtime, so it’s been good in that sense and I’m really just choosing to look at the positives.”
