You should check out the Black Market Kitchen in Oakville

It's very tough to eat healthy, especially when we're surrounded by the easy fast food options like we are in Western Connecticut. As I was going into World Gym at 900 Main Street in Oakville the other week, I saw a really cool looking place had opened up in the building. It's called Black Market Kitchen, and the owner of the business, Shannon Morcey, filled me in on what she's doing there.

Shannon explained that there was a glaring void in healthy eating options in our area, and she's right. You have to go to New Haven, Hartford, Stamford, etc to get into progressive healthy restaurants. She fell into the glut that most of us do, lazily eating the same garbage over and over again, or, fast food. She decided to get up and start cooking, and she's very good at it.

Black Market Kitchen specializes in Paleo, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, and well-balanced meals. You should not stop in if you're looking for a dripping cheeseburger, or Frankie's hot dogs. She does the heavy lifting, all you have to do is stop by and pick up your prepared meals and warm them up at work, home, etc.

It's very reasonably priced for the quality of food that you get, and I'll tell you this, I did feel satisfied and full after eating a couple of her prepared meals. Check Shannon's business out if you're interested in healthier living, you should be!
