Member and Reader Comments

"Healthy Dining Chicago helps keep me focused on my health and provides me with simple changes that I can make. I like the format of the newsletter and there’s some information that I don’t see elsewhere."
~ Jeanine

"Most of the free content out there seems to be either 'junk', nonsense, or a vehicle for advertisement. I think of Healthy Dining Chicago the same way I think of Utne. Totally worth the (very) small price per year."
~ Mary Ann E.

"I believe in only eating healthy whole foods and supporting local producers. Healthy Dining Chicago feels the same way."
~ Kathy C.

"Healthy Dining Chicago gathers information and condenses it into sound bites which saves me time!" :-)

"I hate surfing for information, Healthy Dining Chicago tells me what I need to know. Thanks to Healthy Dining Chicago, I am much more conscious of what I am buying and eating, read labels more carefully, buy more organic."
~ Wendy I.

"Laura, I wanted to let you know how much your newsletters have helped me.  Your Guide (Eat Well for Less) is great, too. Prompted by an earlier issue, I threw out 30 fast-food delivery menus one  day!  It  was exhilarating!" 
Felicia K.

"I go thru the older copies of HDC and there's always something that I'm thinking about right now that you've written about and I'm so glad I have the benefit of your nutritional attention."  

"I enjoy your newsletter. What a great resource - chock full of wonderful info! I completely agree with you regarding your 'dream' of having measuring cups/spoons available in the bulk department [" My Ideal Grocery Store," February 2006]! I cooked at a retreat once and was sent out to a small health food store to get 18 cups of oat flour - only available in bulk. I can eyeball it pretty well, use my hand as a guide...but what a nuisance!"  

"Thanks for the newest HDC newsletter. It is full of great info as always, but I especially liked the material on where to eat, and the reference to the Cancer Project. What a great site!"  

"I am familiar with your publication and find it informative and of great value to those seeking better health through wholesome foods."
~ Rachelle Meade, RD, LDN
