Many thanks for the feedback. The thread move had stumped me completely. Ended up having to look for my last post to track down where it was.
I'll be in the Elk Grove Village area. To be honest I'm not sure how likely getting to restaurants will be. My Dad's health has declined considerably this last year, and he hasn't left the house since February. I'm there for a week though, so who knows? I'd definitely expect to need to explore a bit and do some retail therapy, so lunchtime suggestions would be awesome.
My first question is really what decent vegan foods I could swap in for the usual omni fleshfest. Tofurky is one thing I've heard of, but I have no idea if its vegan (I know google could help with that one), or more importantly (which google can't help with) if it, or something else, is worth bothering with.
Would Whole Foods be a reasonable (more for variety of choice), and best, quick stop to pick up some suitable foods? Thinking about fresh fruit and veg, and seasonal meat substitutes (though to be honest I would be as happy with a vegan pizza for Christmas lunch, but I think that more tradition is the best way not to rock the boat too far), or groovy, exotic, never-heard-of-before-but-would-have-to-move-to-Chicago to never be without again type treats?
Fingers crossed the thread doesn't move again.
