Traveling always provides the perfect opportunity to eat wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar. But, in a place like Las Vegas (where anything and everything you can ever imagine is available) maintaining a healthy diet can be difficult. Fortunately, I’m vain and didn’t want to be bloated in my bikini, making me extra motivated to eat right. 🙂
Here are some tips for eating wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar while vacationing in Vegas:
-Asian food is a perfect option for travel eating. I got to dine, not once, but twice at my favorite Asian restaurant, Chin-Chin Cafe inside New York New York. I noshed on eggplant with tofu — one of my absolute fave dishes and chicken lettuce cups. Yum!
-Salads, baby. Add some protein and your golden.
-For breakfast, an egg white veggie frittata with hashbrowns is a delish choice.
-When on Vegas time, there are typically only two meals a day (due to rising around 11am!), so a a Luna or Cliff bar with a piece of fruit will always suffice.
-For drinks, stay away from juices (packed with refined sugars) and keep it simple. For me that means, sipping on a glass of Chardonney or my new drink–coconut rum and club soda (see photo). It’s refreshing and simple. FYI – Rum does not contain wheat, but is made from molasses.
-Ask about the ingredients of food – you may be surprised. In the picture above, I was enjoying a pecan bar made with almond flour. Hooray!
-Mexican food can be another great option–always be sure to ask that corn tortillas are used. We got our fill at Diablo’s Cantina.
-Sugar-free chocolates are a great treat and were readily available at a casino cafe.
-Bring bars, nuts and dried fruit for easy airplane travel.
Eating wheat-free, dairy-free and low sugar while traveling isn’t as tough as one would expect. Even in Vegas!
