Chica impresses!! 

Butter lettuce salad

So the Venetian and the Palazzo hotels in Las Vegas aren’t really known for their vegan options or attention to dietary restrictions (though they can be found!), but I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the vegan options at Chica, a Latin-fusion restaurant that recently replaced DB Brasserie in the Venetian.

Platanos, guacamole, tortilla chips, and arepas!

The servers were incredibly knowledgeable about the menu and knew exactly what to omit or substitute. What they didn’t know for sure (due to changing menu items), they double checked.

Go check out this beautiful restaurant! The food, music, and decor are all a total hit.

Avocado toast is life

Avocado toast is life and I am guilty of eating it way more than I probably should. Don’t judge me.

Today’s avocado toast starts with one of my favorite breads: OneDegree Organic Foods flax and spelt bread:

An original whole grain wheat prized by ancient civilizations, our spelt is wonderfully free of such modern inventions as hybridization. Blended with pure flax seeds and sweetened with California raisins. Sprouted, veganic, delicious. Non-GMO Project Verified.

Heck yes.

I then buttered the bread with Earth Balance buttery original spread, following up with the star of the show, avocado! I topped the toast off with a little salt and cayenne pepper, then stuffed it in my face.

A+++ avocado toast. Make some yourself and let me know how you liked it!
