I love coming out to Wheaton Marianos Market to visit Chef Tong. Today he made me a Special Yellowtail and Veggie Maki. (It had cucumber, jalapeno, and avocado with Yellowtail and Lime on top.)
I love Japanese food but have to careful because of my allergies to soy, Thats why I enjoy eating here so often.

What a great turnout for the Gluten Free and Allergy Free Expo in Schaumburg today! I would have to say 90% of the people took advantage of the great deal on Groupon for $15 for 2 people for the entire weekend. I know I did! #gfafexpo
So here’s just a few of the vendors I sampled and enjoyed. I will post more tomorrow on day #2.
I love visiting farmers markets and picking up fresh fruits but when I can’t, I still like to be creative with my food.
My twist on dessert.
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
Right in the heart of the quaint little downtown area of Glen Ellyn, Il. this cute little Breakfast spot is the perfect destination for a healthy bowl of steel cut oats with Black Berries and Walnuts. For only $3.50 this is a great alternative to fast food. Only downfall was it was a 20 minute wait with only a handful of customers seated and 7 employees behind the counter.
Definitely would still recommend this spot because of the many food and drink options and very affordable prices.
Paneer Tikka, basmati rice and falafel for a late lunch. Reminds me of the texture of French toast😀
Nice staff. Not sure if they’d ever dealt with someone with allergies before but they accomidated nicely. I wanted spicy pili pili but it had soy. So we opted for just spicy sauce instead. I was happy with it.
$9 Sunday meal
(enough for 2 meals for me)
They also had a fresh smoothie bar with a lot of fun healthy options.something to check out next time.
Went outside my Sunday Norm (eggs benedict) and ordered a big juicy skirt, steak 4 eggs, veggies, and gluten free pancakes. I could only eat a third of this. Lol
Service was Great. Even on a Sunday at 8am. I sat down right away and food was prompt. Thank you Amy for explaining great gluten free low carb options. $9.86 before tip (with my $15 Groupon)
