    Hi Amber – Thanks for the info on places to eat in Vegas. I live here and didn’t know they existed. I shall try them !!

    Go Raw is nice. You’ll love Rod and his staff. Maybe next time you are in Vegas!

    I’ll take one of everything please! I love Indian. Papadums are so good.

    So sorry the elimination diet didn’t work. I appreciate your addressing the diet on here, although I am sure it’s frustrating. Seems like you are still GF? I am glad to have another GF buddy even though I am sure you miss gluten. I am sorry you didn’t get anything out of the elimination diet, but maybe you have more of an appreciation for what you can eat now? I know I do when I can add something back in, it’s like a huge gift. I am glad you don’t have to get more restrictive. I am all for diet helping health, but I feel sometimes there is a wall you hit and diet isn’t always the only solution to every health problem.

    Never been to Vegas (almost typed an N there at the end too) but you make it look appealing and filled with delicious food. It’s always fun to tag along on those business trips and free or almost free trips are great too. I have been blessed with a few of those lately. Sometimes when you really need something in life it comes to you.

    I was secretly hoping maybe you guys would have a wild bachelor/ette thing there but I guess that one drink was enough wildness for now.

    Las Vegan – love it. Good to know I could eat so well if I ever make it there. Every once in awhile I get an urge to go. Glad you guys got away for a little fun!!!

    I love the Mint Bistro! We ate there last time we were in Vegas. One of the fun parts of being a blogger is that you can look beck at your posts for reminders. We had the vegan sampler and I described it as the kind of delicious that makes you moan in pleasure. And speaking of misplaced ‘n’s, I called my post “Las Vega(n)s Weekend. Your post makes me want to go back!

    Ha ha, Viva Las Vegan! Sounds like a fun trip, even tho you didn’t take me up on my suggestion to elope. πŸ™‚ You two are so adorable!

    This post makes me joyful all through my heart. So proud of you for allowing yourself a break from, well, everything. I’ve been life-overwhelmed myself lately but have been thinking of you muchly. Also, Game of Thrones (books) are awesome. It’s so nice to find fantasy that is actually written well! xoxo

    Love that last shot of you! The Indian food looks so fabulous, and so do the wraps. I hope you’re feeling better and very happy that you enjoyed your trip (and didn’t worry too much about a little alcohol).

  12. Trish @ MyBigFatBundt

    So glad you got to get away! And SOOOO happy you relaxed and took a break from your restrictive diet. Sometimes the ‘diets’ themselves can cause more stress, added cortisol, etc…you get the picture. πŸ˜‰ My point of view is only YOU know what works for you body…and you listened to your body. πŸ™‚ You look very pretty and happy…good sign.

    Wow, what an impressive spread! You deserved to let lose a bit and enjoy yourself on your trip. No guilt allowed!

  14. Tara

    Those lassis look awesome!!! I’d break my diet for those, too! I can’t have alcohol either : ( Actually I can’t have much of anything due to acid reflux– no fun! Your trip looks like a blast. I think that being really happy and relaxed for a few days is the most healing thing you can do for yourself. And you look so stunning!! : )

  15. Hannah (BitterSweet)

    Hugs, big hugs, my dear. I’m so glad you could escape for a little bit and have some fun, in spite of everything.

    Hi Amber,

    I really appreciate your honesty in how the elimination diet did not work for you (Sorry to hear that.). Everything in moderation. Glad you were able to stick to your diet while in LV.

    Thanks for sharing your experience and those pictures.

  17. Heather

    Amber, you guys always go on such fun trips and have the BEST eats! love it!

  18. Richa@HobbyandMore

    sounds like a super awesome trip. i love that indian platter!

  19. sybaritica

    What a gorgeous Thali combo … and lovely photography!

  20. amber

    Oh man that food looks outrageous!

    And you go girl. You have to take advantage of those free trips.

    And you gave that diet a good run. I’m so impressed with your dedication. That was quite restrictive. You are listening to your body. Good for you!

    Thinking of your sweet girl.

    Hugs,
    -Amber

    Hi Amber,
    So glad you enjoyed your trip to Vegas. I’m a local and a relatively new vegan, so I’ve been exploring the options. Red Velvet and Pura Vida are definitely favorites, but I haven’t yet made it to Mint – gotta put that on the top of the list. Go Raw is awesome! Being a local, I was unable to resist a t-shirt I found on Amazon not long ago – that iconic Las Vegas welcome sign printed with Las Vegan.
    I hope that you can find a dietary key to feeling better.

    I’ve never been to Vegas before, but my parents have. Sounds like a blast. You’re looking happy and healthy again in those photos. Hope you are doing well.

  23. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    That Red Velvet CafΓ© place looks amazing!
    I love Vegas – I have only been there once and had a blast! the indian restaurant you went to looks ridiculous! i googled how to make some of this stuff. i’m glad you had fun!!

    Las Vegas really looks like fun. I used to say that I wasn’t interested in going, but the older I get the more inclined I am to take a trip. Maybe I will one of these days. πŸ™‚

    I’ve been to Vegas a number of times but never venture far from the strip, so I haven’t been able to check out Pura Vida or Mint, they both look great! And you look great too!
