Primal in america
I'm currently in Chicago. I was wondering if there are ANY primal foods in the cities or do you always have to drive out of town? I'm only looking for some organic cream or bacon or butter or something like that. So far all I've seen here is a walgreens and a 711 which to me didn't seem like they had anything good.
Look for a Whole Foods [url]http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/stores/list[/url] Probably your best bet in a big city if you don't know the smaller stores and area that well. They seem to have quite a few locations in Chicago.
ETA: [url]http://www.traderjoes.com[/url] is another good one with several locations in your area
I just want to say that if you are in Chicago.... maybe live a little and eat non primal foods too. Like some sausages and deep dish pizza and hit up Chinatown. Or go eat swedish meatballs at Anna Sathers.
You will not find primal foods at 7-11 or Walgreens- those are not grocers. However, you may need to go to more residential areas to find a real grocery store.
But if you get to a Whole Foods, you can indeed eat well and stay Primal.
Hot Doug's is a must if you're in Chicago. [url=http://www.hotdougs.com/menu.htm]Hot Doug's[/url]
Aside from the items listed on the online menu, they have specials--things like antelope and duck sausages. It is freaking amazing. There was a line down the block when we went, but the line moved relatively quickly. It was maybe a 30-45 minute wait but totally worth it. Don't eat the buns, and it's probably pretty primal. In any case, it's worth it as part of your 20%.
Edited to add: I just noticed that the specials are listed online too. Read and drool! [url]http://www.hotdougs.com/specials.htm[/url]
Welcome to the USA.
What are you doing in Chicago? School? Vacation?
@J3nn Thanks, I'm about to go to a whole foods if I can find it.
@mago, Well, obviously I eat primal so can live a lot :D
@diene Seems cool, but we don't have a car and it's a1.5hr walk from where I stay
@Paleobird I'm doing route 66 with my mom. We're going all the way to Santa Monica. I love talking to random people and cute girls here, people are much friendlier and easier to talk to than in the Netherlands. It's sad to see all the homeless people though
Public transportation in Chicago is pretty easy to use.
You will have a great time!

I've been thinking about doing that drive the other direction later this summer when it cools off a bit. Maybe September as soon as the kids are back in school. I live about 2 hours south of Santa Monica.
Yes, homelessness is very sad and I think it is an area where this country is really lagging.
Yes, you can take public transportation there. Use the trip planner: [url=http://www.transitchicago.com/travel_information/trip_planner.aspx]Trip Planners, Transit Directions | CTA[/url]
