Here comes another personal fact, wow, this post is loaded with them! I have Poly-cystic Ovarian Syndrome- a really not fun endocrine problem that messes with a lot of things. I know I'm not alone, about 1 in 10 women have it, and so I know many of you know my pain! One of the worst parts for me is my blood-sugar. I have a lot of symptoms of both diabetes and hypoglycemia, so I really have to watch what I eat and when I eat, particularly when I'm having cyst problems. I've found a strict diabetic diet for about month usually solves the problem and then I can go back to some sugar and carbs until the next round of problems crops up. Sadly, this month is one of those times. If I had my way we'd go eat Creme Brulee for dinner at Ruth's Chris, but I'm pretty committed to feeling great again so I had to choose a completely carb-free, sugar-free meal. Don't worry, I had a place in mind pretty quickly!
Shout-out to my coworker and blogging friend Katie who came to work one day and said "You HAVE to go on a date to this place I tried last night." She proceeded to tell me about a new restaurant in the heart of Downtown Scottsdale called Nourish.
The whole premise is the idea that they cater to allergies and dietary restrictions while still tasting amazing.
They are in one of the urban Frank Loyd Wright inspired communities with all kinds of hipster shops, restaurants, and luxury condos. Not to mention the amazing gardens. But really, let's get to the main attraction: THE FOOD!
We really enjoyed the cool atmosphere of the restaurant, but couldn't resist a walk through the structure with 90 degree temp (unseasonably cool after a rainstorm that day) and some amazing architecture. Not to mention this is something always fun to do on a date and totally FREE! You can check out our view much better on their website.
