MAXLIVING Indy Restaurant Guide

The key to picking a restaurant in order to minimize toxicity is to only eat places that talk about the source of their meat, even better if they talk about the source of their produce, and even best if they are a restaurant that tries to use organic ingredients.  Even when eating at a restaurant, you need to choose carefully. Just because you’re at a “good” restaurant does not mean that you can choose the shrimp or the pork on the menu. It also doesn’t mean that you can load up on grains. Restaurants that tout “real ingredients” are a lot less likely to use preservatives, high fructose corn syrup or food dyes.  These are the non-negotiables for my family.

To find these restaurants in other cities, I search “farm to table [city],” or “organic restaurant [city]”.  If I am looking for affordable and fast, then I go to First Watch, Chipotle or Panera.  Those are found in most cities and they each talk about “free range eggs” or “no hormones or antibiotics” in their chicken or “no additives or artificial colors.” If you have a restaurant that you feel should be included, please comment below for consideration. Please hold your negative comments such as “____ restaurant offers cinnamon rolls! It’s not a healthy option.” If you are looking for only perfect places, home cooked meals are going to be your best option.
