I always love when a natural market opens in Chicago! While
Chicago is known for loving steak, the cows will be happy that this
city is becoming more health conscious.
Mrs. Green's has two prime locations. It just opened at 555 W.
Webster in Lincoln Park across from Oz Park and DQ and offers
one-hour indoor parking (very important for this Arctic winter).
Its second location is opening in the former Fox & Obel space
in Chicago's River North neighborhood.
Mrs. Green's is kid friendly. It offers mini shopping carts and
all produce is organic so when my daughter grabs an apple and
starts eating it on the spot, I don't have to freak out looking for
wipes. They have a smoothie station, a dessert counter carrying
local bakers' treats, and if you are hungry while shopping, they
have made to order hamburgers and pizzas.
The best part of this new natural market is they offer free
nutrition consultations. All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and
they will set up an appointment and send you a form to fill out
specifying your nutritional goals ranging from gluten free and
shedding pounds to cooking kid-friendly meals.
I sat down with both nutritionists to discuss my favorite topic,
healthy family meals. Not only did we discuss healthy swaps, but
also they personally walked me through the aisles showing me
products based upon our consultation. You are not obligated to buy
anything. As a result of my complimentary consultation, I am now
baking with coconut oil, red lentil pasta, all natural food
coloring from plants, and coconut sugar.
Thank you Mrs. Green's for teaching me new healthy cooking tips
that I can't wait to share!
