Best Places to Eat out in Chicago (When you want to be healthier)
Diets come and go, but wanting to eat out will last forever. I do not know about you guys, but I am always so excited and eager come Monday to stay on track with my healthy eating. Yet, Wednesday comes, and the girls want to go to happy hour, or Friday comes and everyone is headed out to dinner and drinks. It makes it feel like all your hard work is just going to go out the window with booz and a not so healthy meal out.
It does not have to be this way though! There are some great restaurants in Chicago that let you have a healthy meal out, without any worries the next day. Plus these are not just any old restaurant, these are all fun to grab your girls and have a great meal before a great a great night out!
Ema - Can never go wrong with a mediterranean restaurant, with their clean style of cooking include mostly olive oil, vegetables, and protein legumes. Plus it is in River North, so you can head right out to the bars!
