A few weeks ago we dined with both sets of grandparents at Bleuroot restaurant in downtown Dundee, IL.
I have been so delighted to have Bleuroot as part of our local restaurant scene because Bleuroot’s mission is “To provide our community with a unique locally sourced farm-to-table dining experience where there food is always fresh and you leave feeling like family.”
Not only did we feel welcomed and comfortable dining near the flowing Fox River, but all of our dietary needs (vegetarian, egg free, gluten free, dairy free, and paleo) had fresh, delicious, and locally sourced meal options to choose from.
We left satisfied on ALL of the levels. Eating well is an important way we connect to nature and the Earth. If we are mindful of where our food comes from, how it is grown, how it is lovingly prepared, how we consciously choose to consume it, and with whom we dine with, we can do a great deal to change our bodily health, our community’s health, and our environmental health. Turns out, that eating lunch is no small affair. Thanks to Bleuroot for providing delicious and sustainable options.
