Catching up and Crappy Pictures!

Breakfast Burrito at Pura Vida in Las Vegas, NV.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been away for a bit! I have been traveling for some work, so that I can get some extra money and sadly, I haven’t had time to seriously blog. One interesting thing that I’ve been experiencing more and more is eating vegan around the country, when you don’t have a kitchen and are at the mercy of restaurants to essentially “survive”. Because of this, I’ve found some restaurants that I wouldn’t have necessarily looked for before, and have found vegan options at establishments that were surprising.

Chocolate Waffle with Bananas, Maple Syrup and Chocolate Drizzle at Pura Vida in Las Vegas, NV.

When I was in Las Vegas, I used my handy-dandy Happy Cow App to locate some vegan goodies, and was not let down by Pura Vida Bakery & Bystro, a wholly vegan restaurant just north of the strip. I went there for breakfast both days that I was in town, and was not let down either time. Chef Mayra was so kind, and genuinely interested in how much I enjoyed the food and making sure everything was great. The restaurant itself is totally unassuming, in the industrial/strip clubby part of town it’s a diamond in the rough. It’s cute interior was comforting in the was that it reminded me of a family kitchen, and the servers were very nice as well.

The first morning my boyfriend and I got the Latin-tude burritos, which had all sorts of fillings and had a side of flaxseed tortilla chips and fresh bean salsa served with it. It was extremely filling and we saved our other halves to eat throughout the day, who am I kidding, I ate both of the other halves! The second morning I wanted something sweet and ordered the Dark Choco-Waffle, it was super decadent and totally worth the sugar coma afterward. I had it topped with some banana to fool myself into thinking it was healthier, ;). I highly recommend going there and I’d definitely go back if I was in Vegas.

Citrus-y Stir Fry in Bullhead City, AZ.

After Vegas, I headed to Bullhead City, AZ. to visit my grandmother and make her dinner. She had a lot of veggies leftover from Thanksgiving dishes, so with the addition of  bean sprouts, water chestnuts and orange stir fry sauce; I pulled together a delicious stir fry that both her and my aunt enjoyed. I was offered a position as a live-in personal chef, but I had to turn it down. 😉

King Noodle Soup at Loving Hut in Orange, CA.

Now, I’m back home and finally got a haircut (which I love!) and it just so happens that Loving Hut is down the street from my salon, so of course I had to go and get my soup on! I got the King Noodle soup for the first time, and as usual, it was totally yummy and satisfying. There’s a bit of what I’ve been eating/doing the past week or so, can’t wait to post some holiday recipes for you all!
