After a busy holiday season packed with late-night parties, Christmas cocktails, and family feasts, it’s no surprise that losing weight and eating healthier are among the top 5 resolutions made each year. So if you happen to be one of the millions of Americans vowing to steer clear from junk food and eat more vegetables but don’t have a lot of time to prepare meals at home, our team is recommending a few great restaurants where you can dine out without the guilt. The best part? They’re all just a short trip from The Hudson Chicago.
A three-minute jaunt on the Brown Line, Hi-Vibe is an organic superfood juicery who has designed their menu to make their customers look and feel their best. Whether it’s organic cold-pressed juices or fibre-filled acai bowls, Hi-Vibe is the perfect spot to stop by before work and grab a nourishing start to your day. We highly recommend any of their smoothie bowls!
Address: 160 West Kinzie St.
Forget your average salad bar. A ten minute walk from The Hudson Chicago, 3 Greens Market serves a cold salad bar from 7am to 8pm, and hot bar from 11am to 3pm. From Thai Tofu Curry to Lemon Thyme Chicken, pile your plate with all of your (healthy) favourites.
Address: 354 West Hubbard Street
When hunger calls and you have just 30 minutes till your next meeting, finding food that’s both quick, good, and good for you can seem like a real challenge. That’s why it’s best to have a plan of action. Hop in the car or on the Brown Line, as both are a six minute commute to the Merchandise Mart, where you’ll find Protein Bar and Kitchen located on the second floor. If you love the taste of chocolate, Wrigley Peeled and Millennium Perk are a couple healthy smoothies you won’t want to pass on (and not just because we love their names!). In the mood for something heartier? Try any of their Bowls and Bar-Ritos for a filling meal that you can take to go.
Address: 222 Merchandise Mart Plaza, 2nd Floor
