Hey guys! I realized this week that I haven’t posted a regular vlog almost all month long…And also, it’s incredibly hot in my office right now so the idea of sitting under hot lights in a sensible sweeter is literally melting my brain right now. Next week we’ll talk about Fury Born, but this week I just needed a day to laze around the house. I hope you enjoy this video, Please ‘Like’ and SUBSCRIBE. And as always, thank you so much for watching!
P.S. Hope you enjoyed that Easter egg 😉

Let’s talk for real for just a sec. Like most of you out there, I didn’t grow up on a vegan diet. In fact, I’m pretty sure my mother is still confused about what tofu really is. So when I became ‘hella-woke’ and started to make more ethical food choices, I’m sorry to admit, there were a lot of meat and poultry products that I really missed.
Fortunately, I started to venture out and discovered that Vegas has so much to offer the common vegetarian or vegan. I decided to share some of my favorite veggie eateries for those of us Las Vegans that are just starting out in the veg-game. All of the places I’ve listed below are great in their own way, but the common thread between them is that they don’t sacrifice great flavor in order to be vegan.
When I first decided to start eating more ethically, VegeNation was the first place, other than my own house, that I ate at. Located in the heart of old Vegas on Carson Ave, you couldn’t ask for a better spot to grab some great vegan foods. If you’re ever in the neighborhood during breakfast hours, be sure to try one of their tofu scramble bowls. They’re Lit!
Violett’s Vegan Organic Cafe And Juice Bar
Before you were vegan or vegetarian did you enjoy a BLT every once in a while? Or a soul-warming bowl of chili? I know I did. Cut to Violett’s Vegan Cafe. Along with a great selection of freshly blended juices, this cafe also makes some of the best cafe classics, vegan style. Located off West Desert Inn Road, some great vegan food is just a hop onto the DI away!
VegeWay appeals to my very lazy, sloth-like temperament. Anytime I can get a vegan meal without having to get out of my car, I’m Down! Their burgers are comparable to that of IN-N-OUT, and their zucchini fries are bangin’! Do yourself a flavor and get to a VegeWay drive-thru ASAP! They currently have two locations. One on South Jones Blvd and another on North Durango Drive.
Panchos Vegan Tacos
The one thing that I missed more than anything when I stopped eating red meat was tacos, carne asada, el pastor, etc. . . So I thank the powers that be, Panchos brought all those and so much more back into my life, and my stomach. If you’re looking for great Mexican food period, vegan or otherwise, I highly recommend you head over to South Pecos Road and see what they got going on at Panchos Vegan Tacos.
Recently, my boyfriend and I took a small trip to San Diego for my birthday. We had a great time at the zoo, and an even better time at the bar. . . Duh. On our way back to Vegas we decided to bypass the crazy stand-still traffic of the I-15 and go on a little adventure. We took the scenic route through the Mojave desert. Just before we entered the Joshua Tree National Park, we came across this guy! We quickly decided to pull over for a photo opt. As we got closer to the lion dude, we realized we had found our very first Geocache! It was such an amazing experience reading all the previous travelers notes of well-wishes and mirrored excitement from finding this not-so-little-gem in the desert.
