I think it’s safe to say that throughout my entire week in Vegas last week, I probably consumed less than 4 servings of vegetables. As much as I enjoyed all of the delicious food that I ate, I was definitely missing all those extra nutrients! Enter: A Big ‘Ol Grilled Chicken Salad I took care […]

We have arrived!!   After a much smoother, yet long day of traveling, we finally arrived in Vegas. WOOO HOOO! Our flight went very smoothly (thank goodness) and our hotel was a super quick drive away from the airport, so we were able to get settled right away. Here’s the view from our room: After […]
