Eating healthy and eating out don’t always go hand in hand. That’s especially true for take-out! Plus, when you are able to find something healthy to order, more than half the time, you don’t really get the flavor and fun you’re looking for when you think “stay in and eat up.” But every once and a while, you come upon delivery you can really sink your teeth into, and not even feel guilty! That’s how we felt when we learned that one of our favorite fast casual spots in Chicago, honeygrow, is now delivering!
The honeygrow stir fry is the perfect weeknight dinner, and their salads are our office favorite! There are so many topping and sauce options, but the Roasted Garlic Stir Fry is our current winter favorite. If you’re more of a salad gal (we will always love pasta, sorryboutit) they have classics like the Cobb, and also a Winter Kale Salad with pomegranate vinaigrette, kale, mushrooms, pears, roasted brussels sprouts, blue cheese, and pecans. Can you say, “Yum!”?
You can also get green juices, health-focused desserts like their Honeybar, and more. They have multiple locations downtown, and are opening one in suburbs soon, too. Whether you want to go in and see all your array of options, or prefer to hide from the cold and just order in, getting access to these tasty treats is easy peasy. Check out the full menu HERE
Plus, we love the honeygrow story, which began when founder Justin Rosenberg converted to a plant-based diet and got tired of the mediocrity in the fast food options that lay before him. So, in 2012, he quit his day-job, trained in a fine-dining kitchen, and pursued a life that spoke to his passion. What’s more inspiring than that?
Now, they’re a whole team of creatives, all of whom get seriously excited about gorgeous food and happy guests. Nothing is frozen. Lots of it is purchased locally. And all of it is colorfully delicious! They “couldn’t care less what the other fast-casual guys and gals do,” they’re in it for the love of great food. And that’s a concept we can get behind for sure.
