My family just returned from a mini-vacation in Chicago. Our hotel was downtown which made it nice being able to walk around and check out the sites. It was honestly a fantastic time! Prior to getting there, I was concerned about finding restaurants where my whole family can find something to eat off the menu. I am following the AIP diet and my 7 yo son has several food sensitivities, including chicken and dairy.
I don’t know why I was worried. Come to find out there are several restaurants in the city that rock the “support local & promote sustainability” way. There tends to be a lot less junk needlessly added in the food at these kind of restaurants. AWESOME!
Wondering where we ate? Here are a couple of the restaurants:
We had dinner at the LYFE Kitchen.
I had their green smoothie, baked sweet potato fries & roasted brussel sprouts and squash.
For breakfast we had a nice breakfast at the Local Root restaurant. I REALLY liked this place and my family had nice full tummies after eating there.
I had a pot of hot green tea, bacon w/ a plate of sautéed zucchini and squash.
So fresh and tasty!
