Bright and beautifully colored smoothie bowls, jam-packed with organic superfoods are now available at BRIGHT BOWLS in Highland Park. Growing up in Highland Park circa 1990, founder Lindsay Meltzer struggled to find healthy food options as a vegetarian. From her struggle grew a great love for food science and creating clean, healthy recipes. After living in California throughout her twenties Meltzer returned to Chicago and eventually moved her family back to Highland Park. In an effort to encourage her three children and husband to eat healthy, Meltzer created bright colored smoothie bowls out of organic, gluten-free, and dairy-free ingredients. As its following rapidly grows, Bright Bowls is evidence that nourishment can be delicious and beautiful. Bright Bowls offers a variety of smoothie bowls and chia puddings to please your palate and your eyes. Bright Bowls is located at 777 Central Avenue in Highland Park, brightbowls.com.
TO A TEA
The mission of philanthroTEA is simple; they fill your cup so that you can help to fill the cups of others. They have carefully curated a group of Chicago area organizations that are passionate about giving back. Twenty percent of profits from the sale of each blend is donated to organizations that are dedicated to making our world a better place for generations to come. Their blends are certified Kosher, non-GMO, and USDA organic, which results in a pure cup of tea that is consistently worth bragging about. PhilanthroTEA is a sister-owned company that stemmed from a sincere desire to give back. The sisters grew up in a home that was built on love, hard work, and respect. When they began sketching the framework of philanthroTEA both knew that the foundation of the business had to embody these principles in order to pay tribute to their roots.
