Eating my veggies

Decided to stop in my Favorite Marianos in Wheaton on this beautiful Saturday afternoon for a quick bite and to say hello to a few of my favorite employees. 

I’ve known Sean Hartman for awhile and by far he is one of the best managers I’ve ever met. Although we’ll miss him at Bloomingdale, it’s nice to have him back in Wheaton. 

As I was leaving I stopped over to try out this coconut water and I have to say that the Regular and Cherry coconut were absolutely amazing. Since I don’t drink pop or carbonated drinks and prefer natural ingredients this is the idea electrolyte water at only around $1.79 price point. Definitely recommend it for everyone, especially your kids!

I love the Olive Muffaletta and hot giardiniera from The Pickle guy😎 

And I couldn’t resist stopping by the  Cocoa Bean Fine Desserts and Bakery booth for a few treats.

Oh sooo  delicious!

*A few Gluten Free options also available.

Babcock’s Grove House

Mom and I found this cute place when we were walking through downtown Lombard,Il. We had a delicious Hot Carrot Soup, A Cold Cucumber dill soup, and 3 Mini Sliders.

 
Their soups and salads are under $10 and this is definitely a great place for a Saturday lunch date or a great meal with the family. Counter service till 4 then relaxed full service at night.

I love the fact that everything is made fresh, nothing was frozen (except the ice cream) and the menu changes with the seasons.

* Gluten Free options available.

Great food🍽 Great Staff and Great location!

Monthly Food Subscription Boxes

Most ladies have heard of Ipsy, Birchbox and Smashbox but I’ve just discovered a Foodies dream come true… Monthly Food Subscription boxes. Hallelujah!


First up “Love with Food”

Here’s their 3 plans. I went with the 1st one for now but I might switch it later. I’m excited that there is a gluten free option!

And they donate one meal for every subscription is pretty cool too. 

Has anyone ever tried this company? Do you know of any others that are legit? Please leave a comment below! Thanks
