Healthy in Vegas?
Las Vegas is designed to cater to your every indulgence. But what if you want to see the other side, the healthier activities and cuisine?
I’ve been to Vegas on a strict diet exactly once. So strict that I made all my own food at home, froze much of it and carried it with me in coolers until the mini-fridge was delivered to my room. Luckily, I was booked solid at the host hotel all week and didn’t have much time to be tempted by all The Strip and it’s esteemed kitchens have to offer.
Like most people, my normal trip to Vegas is a “vacation” which – in my world – means healthy eating is out the window. In fact, it’s almost a race to see how many amazing restaurants and storied treats I can taste before boarding the plane back home. (I mean that literally…..it usually entails driving through In-N-Out Burger on the way to the airport.)
But recently Food & Wine Magazine set out to do Las Vegas the healthy way, both in eating and experiences. Check out this article to see how it’s done.
Great to know I can go healthy at one of my favorite spots – Jose Andres’ China Poblano. But please, don’t avoid it if you’re out there for the over-the-top amazing food cause it’s fantastic for feasting. And with all the luxurious food at the Wynn, who woulda thought it was a haven for vegans and vegetarians.
I guess there is hope for vacationing in Sin City without gluttony being on the top of my list. Just not sure if I’ll try it….yet.
