Two New Totally gluten-free Restaurants In Chicago
0

4 posts in this topic

Just wanted to mention a couple of new places in Chicago that are totally gluten free:

Filo: This place opened last spring, I think. It's kind of a hole-in-the-wall and has a small menu, but it is totally gluten free, tasty, and pretty cheap. Dinner runs about $10-$15 a person, including soup & dessert - it's also BYOB. They're also open for brunch on the weekends and prices are in the $7-$10 range. The place lacks a bit on atmosphere and I'm pretty sure the chef has enlisted his friends as wait staff, but it's worth checking out if you live in/near Chicago. It's at the corner of Augusta & Western. No website, but they're on Facebook.

Senza: I don't think this place is actually open yet, but it should be very soon. It's totally gluten free and looks to be more fine-dining, as it's run by the people who do Schwa and Green Zebra and both of those are on the pricey side. It'll be open for breakfast/brunch as well as dinner. Website is www.senzachicago.com, and the place is on Broadway in the Lakeview neighborhood. When (not if!) I eat there, I'll post up something about the food. Very excited to try their brunch options!

I just wanted to revive this thread to inquire if anyone has been able to visit Senza yet. I'd love to hear your experiences. According to Yelp, many people, even non-gluten-intolerant or celiac folks are loving this place! They now offer baked goods from 9-noon T-F as well so I plan to stop by there for a few items once my schedule frees up during the day. Also, I'm a vegetarian and I checked with them regarding veggie options, and they said they'd be happy to provide a vegetarian option for each course and can even do a 9-course vegetarian tasting menu with 24 hours notice. That's probably a little fancy for me but it's good that they offer it. 

 

I'm planning to head there next month for my birthday. It will most likely be my first meal out since I've gone gluten free. I'll definitely update once I check them out!

      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread 
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for replying, I have not yet tried Cbt, I did meet with a psychologist for 2 months when I was really in the deepest depths of depression but it didn't really help, I couldn't concentrate at all during our sessions my anxiety and negative self talk was trough the roof at the time, and after loosing my job I could no longer afford the $150 sessions, I don't have medical insurance as I am currently waiting on my permanent residence visa to come tru ( originally from Northern Ireland) I might look into some Cbt sessions to see if they help, I'm willing to try anything

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
