Ahh, Vegas. This was my first time visiting Sin City and I truly had no idea what to expect. Of course, I had seen movies like The Hangover and Ocean's Eleven, but until you step foot onto the Strip, you are still a rookie.
Prior to visiting the man-made city in the desert, I did some research into what I might be able to eat when I got there. The results were grim, especially since I am not only vegan, but gluten-free as well. I purchased and brought quite a few packaged items and fresh fruit with me, but thankfully, I did not starve while there. In fact, for the most part, and with a few modifications, there was something I could eat at every place I found.
Day 1: A friend of mine lives in Vegas, so she took me off the Strip to dinner at Khoury's, a Mediterranean gem. There, I feasted like a queen and left quite stuffed.

|Mmm, butter lettuce with freshly ground pepper, beets, and crisp green apples. Perfection.|
