After the past month’s emotional roller coaster—and a roller-coaster sports bar diet of beer, wings, nachos, and assorted fried treats consumed while watching our beloved Cubbies finally bring home the trophy—we could all use a detox. Get back on the right track at these six healthy Chicago hotspots.
Salads get the Chipotle treatment at this airy open-kitchen concept that's new to Chicago, with locally and seasonally sourced ingredients prepared to order. Get your avocado fix with the Guacamole Greens salad or try a taste of the fall menu while it lasts with the Curry Cauliflower, a warm bowl featuring quinoa, roasted chicken, hot chickpeas, and cucumber tahini yogurt dressing. 623 N. State St., 312-374-8173
Skip the morning Starbucks line and head to this juice spot for a boost of energy and an organic kick. For the pick-me-up you need with added health benefits, go for the Kill Shot, a 4-ounce best seller bursting with herbs and spices like echinacea, turmeric, and curcumin. 160 W. Kinzie St., 312-724-8423
“Meat free since ’83” is the slogan at this Boys Town favorite, where the creative, all-vegan menu boasts items like Thai chile “wings,” seitan gyros, and sweet potato-tofu burgers. 3411 N. Halsted St., 773-935-6696
Give Grubhub a break and get a chef-created organic meal delivered to you in 20 minutes or less with this Chicago-based app. Meals are prepared fresh with seasonal and local ingredients, with options like Tuscan black kale salad with smoked cherries and agave nectar, and grass-fed beef shortrib with celery root potato puree and spiced walnuts.
Raise a toast to our World Series champs with the Wrigley Peeled, a nutrition-packed shake with chocolate protein, almond milk, organic peanut butter, banana, and organic agave nectar. Multiple locations
