Krazy For Kramer

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on August 17, 2010

Good morning!

This morning I had some breakfast before we headed out. Whenever I travel I always make sure I have some healthy foods on hand for quick and easy snacks and breakfasts. It saves money and always assures me that I have options on hand. When I go to Paris next month, I am going to bring lots of Glo Bars (as per OSGMOM’s request!) and Amazing Grass. Once I arrive at the destination, I try to pick up fruit to keep in the room too.

Split the mango slices with Eric…

We’ve gone through an entire bag already. I am thinking another trip to TJ’s might be necessary!! They are pure bliss.

I had an apple and then split the Glo Bar with Eric:

Yum!

We walked around for a bit and took more pictures of the city!

Today was the first cloudy day we have had since we’ve been here.

I don’t mind the clouds one bit because it is so much cooler outside for walking. Always a good thing when you are lugging around a SLR and a purse full of foodie purchases. ;)

Eric said I ‘blended’ with the flowers today. :)

Then we were off to Kramer’s Health Food Center. Thanks to @BDskinnyjeans and @cakesnale for the Kramer’s tip. ;)

Kramer’s has a huge health food store and a vegetarian cafe upstairs:

Upstairs…

We were very impressed…lots of fun options!

Eric got a delicious bruschetta sandwich for his breakfast (I had a couple bites and it was lovely!)

Sprouts, onions, tomato, lettuce, and bruschetta spread.

I was quite full from my previous eats so I got a large beet, carrot, and ginger juice. It was awesome and just what I was craving. I also grabbed a banana to throw in my purse.

I drank this juice SO fast and concluded again that I am not hydrating enough on this trip! I think we are walking so much (in the heat too) that I am underestimating how much I need.

A happy glow ensued.

I also bought some all-natural/vegan mints:

Very good! Minty but not overpowering.

More exploring ensued! Eric had yet to go South on Lakeshore so I took him there to show him the great views (I ran that way on Sunday!).

I had the banana for a snack around noon:

It was a fun morning!

I am about to do a shot of Amazing Grass Wheatgrass power right now. :)

Don’t forget if you want to take advantage of the coupon code for Amazing Grass products use the code HLS10 in the checkout for 25% off your order. :) My Glo Bar coupon code will be coming next week so keep your eyes peeled!

After I hit publish on this post we are heading out for lunch and then to the Signature Lounge. Apparently the 96th floor in the WOMEN’s BATHROOM of the Hancock tower has the best view of the city. I will see you later tonight with the recap. :) Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Kramers looks like a great place to shop and eat. I think you did blend in with the pretty flowers. I will definitley be visiting Chicago again and staying longer.

It was so beautiful outside today! I took the clouds and loved them. It made for such a pleasant day.

Your dress is absolutely stunning – I love it!

Your trip to Chicago looks amazing – totally want to go now.

Just to say about taking the Glo Bars to Paris…. can you do that? I know that countries are funny about taking food abroad – maybe look into before you go? I’d hate to have to see you throw out tonnes of Glo Bars.

Ooh also thanks for the Amazing foods coupon – want to get the Chocolate Superfood you put in your VOO so that will be a big help!

Kramer’s looks awesome! I bet you went crazy over that tea aisle. ;) I think I need to jot down all these places in Chicago so that I know where to go if I ever take a trip there.

I love that you stayed in Chicago after the HLS, thanks for the tour of the Windy City! Your dress is adorable in this post!

I can’t believe they don’t have Trader Joe’s in Canada. It’s my absolute FAVORITE grocery store. (I’m actually planning a a trip for my lunch break today.) I love picking up new things in addition to my staples (Veggie hummus wrap, corn salsa, snappea crisps [a must try], and sundried tomatoes). Stock up!
