WIAW: Eating Through Green Bay and Chicago

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

I’m so excited to finally share our eats with you!  Sorry to drag out our little getaway weekend into 3 posts.  I hope you all aren’t sick of it yet.  😉

To me, looking for new foodie places is the best part of travel… other than seeing great friends of course!

After traveling either before of after every meal, it was great to freshen up and go out.  This was as good as it was getting…

Yes.. I’m brushing my teeth.  :)

Lets start with dinner and go backwards… saving my favorite meal for last!


Friday night we had dinner at Lambeau Field with a friend.  We ate at Curly’s Pub.

I got grilled Walleye and veggies.  They were so nice to make sure it was allergy and gluten free!  I had also never had Walleye before, but it was very mild and delicious.

Saturday night we ate at the Glenn in a suburb of Chicago.  This was so I could reminisce about my college roommate.  :)

We ended up eating at Jameson’s Charhouse, because I was craving a good piece of salmon.  They gave us a TON of food.  In fact, for the first time ever, Luvy didn’t clean his plate.  I even ate some of his!

My main dish was a salmon salad with fruit.  It was cooked perfectly.

Sorry it is so dark.  They had the mood lighting on.  😉


These were more on the go type places, and I kept forgetting to take pictures!  However, I did manage a picture of Saturday’s lunch.

It was at The Urban Frog in downtown Green Bay.

I got a big salad massaged with avocado and topped with artichoke hearts, black beans, craisins, and chia seeds.  Delicious!

However, I must say.  They lacked in customer service.  I quickly realized that I was away from the Southern hospitality I was used to!


Snacks were packed and eaten in the car.  They included fruits, celery sticks with peanut butter, dry goji berries, and Love Grown Granola.

Friday and Saturday, breakfasts were packed from home since we were in a hotel and we had places to be.

I took things like fruit, protein powder to shake up, lots of peanut butter, and Love Grown Granola.

For Friday, we had a refrigerator so I took a protein pancake all scrambled up.  It was perfect for my peanut butter!

I know it doesn’t look to pretty..  lol!

Especially when you compare it to the gormet breakfast we had on Sunday with Katie.

After Lauren had recommended Prasino for breakfast so highly, Katie and I decided that is where we would meet up for breakfast.  Neither of us were dissatisfied!

They really cater to gluten free, vegans, and people with allergies!

I ended up getting the Garden Skillet.

And I cleaned my skillet.  To. Die. For.

I also ate some of Luvy’s gluten free and vegan pancakes.  Those were really good too!

I can’t wait to go back!  This was seriously the best meal of the trip.  Hands down.

So there are our eats!

Doesn’t that breakfast make you drool??

What’s your favorite city to eat in? Mine would be Seattle!

What’s the best meal you have had recently?

    YES! That breakfast totally DID make me drool, but that salmon did, too 😉 I am so happy it was cooked to perfection for you! I HATE getting dried out salmon! YUCK! Well, not yuck, salmon is always good, but getting just barely raw salmon is THE BEST and I cannot help but drool when thinking of it 😀

    When I was in Boston, I loved every single meal I ate there! Would love to do more traveling, though, so I could eat more tasty food!

    Love you sis

    Yummy eats!
    Mmmm…look at that peanut butter! So tasty.
    Haha, scrambled protein pancakes are hard to photograph, but what they lack in looks they make up for in taste!
    That’s so great they were so catering towards food allergies and intolerances! I love when places are like that.

  3. says

    It’s a good thing I just finished eating not too long ago or I’d be experiencing some serious breakfast envy! Heck… I still am 😛 And I love it when places are considerate of allergies and intolerances. It makes eating so much more enjoyable when you don’t have to worry about it making you sick later on!

  4. says

    Oh wow, that breakfast IS droolworthy! Hard to beat a good bowl of scrambled eggs and crispy potatoes…especially when it comes with a few bites of pancakes on the side! 😉 I rarely ever order pancakes when I go out because I’m always disappointed…ugh, the cross I bare being a self-proclaimed pancake queen! Lol

    Best city to dine in…ATLANTA!! I’ve been twice and (thanks to Laura) have YET to be disappointed! 😀
