2015 New Year’s Resolution – All about food!

For 2015, I’m taking a different spin on the New Year’s resolution.  Instead of trying to lose 20 pounds, drink more water, work out more, etc, etc.  My resolution for 2015 is to try one new restaurant each week.  This doesn’t mean that any healthy intentions are thrown out the window, but why should the clock for those goals start on January 1?  Chicago has so many great restaurants, it’s a shame not to be out there sampling them!  Rather than spending $8 three times a week at Chipotle/Jimmy John’s/etc, why not spend that money on one good meal per week? This may actually be a healthy resolution as I try to reduce my eating and spending at fast food places, and focus on bringing my lunch to work more often.  We’ll see!

As soon as I landed, I headed to Puesto for fish tacos and cerveza!

So, here goes nothing….any recommendations are welcome….fancy to divey, anything goes!  Well…maybe not too fancy, as I also resolve to spend more money on travel this year.
