WESTERN SUBURBS – This July, we are focusing on the wellness of our bodies and are lucky to have some great restaurants and eateries in the west suburbs supporting healthy living without sacrificing your favorites like pasta, meat, and ice cream!
Start the day out right with baked from scratch homemade goods from Two Wild Seeds Baking Company in St. Charles, a dedicated gluten-free/wheat-free facility with menu items free of fillers, preservatives and/or artificial flavors.
Enjoy lunch or dinner, in either Geneva or Wheaton, at Gia Mia’s chef-driven, farm-to-fork food concepts such as Neapolitan style wood-fired pizzas, creative small plates, fresh homemade pasta, antipasto, and hand-made mozzarella, as well as gluten free options.
If you are more of a meat kind of person, St. Charles and Glen Ellyn are home to Muscle Maker Grill for fitness enthusiasts and people trying to eat better while on-the-go. Providing “Great Food with Your Health in Mind,”™ Muscle Maker Grill’s menu features items with grass-fed steak and all-natural chicken, as well as options that satisfy an array dietary preferences from vegetarians to the low-carb consumer and guests following a gluten-free diet.
Hot on the allergy conscious dessert list is vegan ice cream at Batavia Creamery in Batavia. Known for their variety of flavors and a caring staff that will check ingredients for dairy and other allergens, they are open year-round and have scoops, sundaes, shakes, malts, sodas, smoothies and custom made cakes and pies too! -Kristen Kucharski
