Meehandering the 312: Roanoke

Finding a place to grab brunch in Chicago when friends are in town is always a struggle. Mostly in the summer when everyone is out, it’s not ludicrous for a hot spot to have an hour long wait. If you’re anything like me and a. Hate waiting and b. Have a serious case of ‘hangry,’ it’s a little life hack to try and find the spots with the best food that the rest of the city hasn’t fully been turned…

One of my favorite things to do Saturday mornings after working out is to make a smoothie bowl. These tend to get a bad rap because in reality, you are putting a smoothie in a bowl and eating it with a spoon (it’s ‘hipster nonsense’ as my friend Nick likes to call it). However, I like to think of them more as ‘breakfast soups.’ They’re exactly the light snack I need to still give me enough energy to get the…
