You may walk by this Gold Coast gem hidden next to Ace Hardware several times before you actually see it, but if you're searching for healthy options, Chicago Health Foods is worth a look. As the name suggests, the shop specializes in, of course, health foods, but you'll also find tons of specialty supplements and vitamins. Plus, there's a cafe in the back that serves up tasty dishes like black bean burgers (some of the best around), wraps, fresh squeezed juices and even vegan soft-serve ice cream.

Do you want a delicious smoothie? Head on over to Chicago Health Foods on Maple Street. This store has everything you could ask for in a health food store: Vitamins, prepared foods, cosmetics, incense, yogurt, cold press coffee, organic cookies and chocolate - and so much more. Plus, a lovely little cafe serving yummy sandwiches and also makes smoothies to order - my particular favorite is the mango, strawberry, banana, yogurt blend. Delicious. I also love their room and body sprays, particularly the Rosemary/Mint by Zum. There are also cafe tables outside so you can sit in the fresh air and sunshine and get some natural Vitamin D while sipping a smoothie and spritzing yourself with Rosemary/Mint.  Just writing this made me feel good! The staff is great, head on over for a little bit of calm and some delicious and healthy treats.
