WHY IS IT THAT HEALTH CLUBS ARE PACKED IN JANUARY AND BY MARCH ARE BACK TO NORMAL? How about this: why are churches filled to capacity at Christmas, but there’s lots of seats by February? At the start of the year fresh fruit and veggies fill grocery carts only to be replaced by junk food and empty calories as the year wears on. Despite the best of intentions, it boils down to this: change is hard. Keeping a new year’s resolution is hard. SW Lake Lifestyle wants to help you find a new you in the New Year. As 2018 unfolds you’ll see some changes here with more pages, new advertisers, brighter layouts and punchier writing. All stories must hew to three simple criteria: be helpful, useful and informative. Unlike what is found in other

And get your varicose veins treated by an expert in the field. There’s a misconception out there that vein disease is a cosmetic problem not requiring proper medical attention... Vein disease, however, is first and foremost a circulatory disease and frequently the result of genetics. If left untreated, varicose veins could lead to serious side effects, like deep vein thrombosis, venous ulcerations, restless legs and more. Like any other form of disease, experience and specialized training are key to a successful diagnosis and treatment plan. You wouldn’t seek plastic surgery from a dermatologist you would go to a board certified plastic surgeon. At Illinois Vein Specialists, we are very good at what we do, because it has been our only focus since 2007. The care we provide begins with kindness and ends with a joyous experience - which is why we have been blessed to treat more than 10,000 patients since opening. That’s years of practice and expertise and evidence of competence you can trust.

Farm to Table in Style

HOUSEMADE CHORIZO

THINKING FRESH, SMALL & LOCAL IS HITTING IT BIG AT LAKE ZURICH'S ZIN GASTROPUB

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY STEPHEN NEILSON

OPENING A WINE BAR HAD BEEN BOB KRYSCHA’S DREAM FOR YEARS. While buying some fresh fish from Franco’s Pescheria less than a year ago, he learned that Franco’s was planning to relocate. After quickly discussing with family, Kryscha seized

CHEESE

the opportunity and launched into transforming the space into a sophisticated-yetcomfortable, intimate wining and dining spot, bringing inspiration from several of his favorite downtown gastropubs to influence the new design. The result: Zin Gastropub, a stylish new suburban eatery with an urban feel, featuring eclectic from-scratch food and carefully curated beer and wine selections.   The upscale bar is warmly lit by an eclectic collection of oversized Edison-style bulbs in a range of shapes.  The brick was reclaimed from a century-old building in Chicago; the bar is topped by an elegant, locally-obtained black marble slab. True to their Farm-to-Table mantra, they support local farms, distillers and beer makers, sourcing locally whenever practical to do so, and preferring smaller family-owned providers. As their website notes, close to 80% of their food is locally sourced and brought in fresh on a

EMPANADA DOUGH

consistent basis. Their food is fresh and prepared from scratch, ranging from small plates to gourmet burgers and unique daily specials, and includes many gluten free and vegan options. Their Chorizo Empanada ($14) features housemade chorizo served in a warm, golden-browned crust with just enough give and just enough crunch. A key ingredient: a separately prepared veal reduction sauce that’s cooked down over the course of three days, intensifying the flavors and adding a moderating counterpoint to the chorizo, appropriately tuning the level of spice to midwestern palates and leaving a smooth, creamy finish. Rather than the typical wedge of iceberg lettuce, Zin GastroPub serves up their Baby Wedge Salad ($10) with a crisp heart of romaine on a bed of fresh sliced beets, ringed with yellow carrots and sprinkled with gorgonzola cheese and pecans, dressed lightly with a housemade vinaigrette. (See the deconstructed details for both dishes on the following pages.)

CILANTRO

Wine and spirit selections follow the same script as the food, with the well-stocked bar avoiding bulk brands in favor of unique smaller producers. A favorite from the very ample wine list: the “Wild Thing” Old Vine Zinfandel ($14/$44) by award-winning California winemaker Carol Shelton, a rich and highly extracted zin with bramble berry notes lingering deliciously on the finish. Bob Kryscha and the Zin GastroPub team have hit their stride quickly in bringing a quality new dining option to SW Lake with a distinctly local flair.

FINAL COMMENTS: Craft breweries are popping up all the time, but I’ve taken a different approach and created a destination brewery where you can relax and enjoy great handcrafted beer. While many microbreweries are located in warehouse districts and corporate parks, Buffalo Creek Brewery has transformed the former Art Studio of Long Grove into a production brewery with Bavarian themed taproom, event space for weddings and private parties, and a one-of-a-kind Biergarten. The taproom is distinctive with its cedar walls, bar made of hand hammered copper and our seating consists of a mixture of communal tables and whiskey barrel high tops. Since our grand opening, we have been a venue of choice for bridal showers, birthdays, rehearsal dinners, weddings, corporate events and holiday parties.

Dr. Delphine Deignan and Dr. Nick Deignan.

Good Health is a Family

Affair in Barrington ARTICLE DR. DELPHINE DEIGNAN DOCTORING IS THE FAMILY BUSINESS FOR NICK AND DELPHINE DEIGNAN. But their pathways to this family line of work took notably different courses until they found themselves training together in college in Georgia. Dr. Nicholas Deignan went to Illinois State University for his undergraduate degree. He continued his education at Life University in Marietta, GA where he also played rugby on a scholarship. After graduating in 2010, Nick received advanced training in spinal correction, toxicity, exercise and nutrition from some of the largest clinics in the world. He regularly taps into the latest scientifically based research and protocols in health and healing today to continue cutting-edge care for patients at their clinic near Citizens Park in Barrington. Dr. Delphine Deignan discovered the benefits of chiropractic as a young gymnast competing at an international level in France. After an injury left her unable to compete, she began running track and field and continued running through college at the national level on a full ride scholarship.

SW Lake Lifestyle | January 2018

Dr. Deignan has a passion for adjusting babies and expectant mothers, and using the Webster technique.


“We have a health emergency because people are being reactive to health problems instead of being more proactive and responsible for their own health.”

Exceeding Expectations Since 1950

Some years later she suffered another injury, this time to her back. Thanks to chiropractic treatments, Delphine healed from her injury and learned how chiropractic care includes utilizing the body’s natural processes to heal. These experiences led her to an interest in preventative medicine. To continue her studies she moved to the U.S. to enroll in Life University. In 2007 she graduated Cum Laude with a special Clinic Excellence Award. “I think it is important to realize what is going on in our country right now,” Delphine says. “We have a health emergency because people are being reactive to health problems instead of being more proactive and responsible for their own health.” She cites statistics to make her case: + 2/3 adults overweight or obese + 1/3 kids overweight or obese + 258% increase in childhood obesity since 1974 + $147 billion = estimated medical costs of obesity

NEW YEAR, NEW STYLE, NEW YOU!

“It’s not that we’re not trying,” Delphine says. “We have more health food stores, gyms, supplement shops and juice bars than any other country. Why isn’t it working? Because it takes commitment and people are confused.” Along with Nick, she has received advanced training in spinal correction, toxicity, exercise and nutrition from some of the largest health clinics in the world. She has access to the latest scientifically based research and protocols in health and healing today. How does chiropractic care factor into a healthier lifestyle in 2018? “Good health is more complicated than just feeling good,” Delphine says. “Your immune system,

much more than treating back or neck pain.” The Deignans are proud parents of three daughters (all born at home). As parents they understand the rewards – and challenges – of raising healthy children. “Take some time this month to think about your goals for this year,” Delphine says. “Then tell your family, spouse and kids. When you speak it out loud it will manifest… and your chances of actually achieving your goals goes up exponentially.”

SW Lake Lifestyle | January 2018


THINK DIFFERENTLY. ACT DIFFERENTLY. COMMIT TO BECOMING THE BEST VERSION OF YOU. 2018 IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING. It’s time to kick the fad diet and workout programs to the curb. They are short-term solutions to longterm health and fitness problems. Let me put it to you like this: Nobody wants to lose 10 pounds only to gain 15 pounds back. But that’s what most people do every year, right? Not you. Not this year; I challenge you to do things differently. Think differently. Act differently. Commit to becoming the best version of you. Here are five sure-fire ways to change your body (and life):

/// CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER DIALOGUE The first step to making any change (that sticks) is developing awareness around your current state of mind, and how it's impacting you. Succeeding in life is less about what sits in our outside world, and more about the stories we tell ourselves. We all have patterns of behavior (habits). Some serve us well. Others, not so much. The way you perceive the world and yourself is not absolute. It’s a choice, and you can make a different one.

/// RETHINK YOUR GOALS Losing weight is not a goal. It's a result. Your goals (no more than 2 or 3) should be small daily actions that are done consistently over time. Daily actions build habits that lead to sustainable results.

/// FOCUS ON WHAT’S ATTAINABLE Identify what’s attainable for you. Start with small steps and build off of them. Being healthy is a lifestyle. There is no start, or end date.

/// DUMP THE “FOODS ARE GOOD OR BAD” MENTALITY Society tells us to feel either proud or guilty about every food choice we make. You shouldn't feel guilty about wanting the occasional cookie. Give yourself permission to have a glass of wine or a piece of chocolate cake. Don't box yourself in; t’s a recipe for disaster. All foods can fit into a healthy lifestyle.

/// IMMERSE YOURSELF IN POSITIVITY Surround yourself with positive like-minded people. Doing so provides encouragement, emotional support, and a healthy environment that will give you the strength to overcome your darkest day. It's the most courageous thing you could do for yourself this year.
