Best Food in Las Vegas

Even though we didn’t crawl into bed until 3-ish last night I woke up at 6:30am?! I hate myself a little for that. I made myself stay in bed until 8-ish. Then, I contemplated going to the gym. But we had to get going soon so Ben went to get food and I got ready.

This is what he brought back for breakfast: gatorade, iced coffee, pizza and a chocolate almond bear claw. Breakfast of champions people who enjoy tight pants.IMG 2907 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

In a weak attempt to pretend that this trip is healthy on some level I busted out my yogurt and cereal.IMG 2912 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas But, I realized I was in Vegas and threw this ish out for some bear claw. I love the taste of bear in the morning wlEmoticon winkingsmile1 Best Food in Las VegasIMG 2910 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Then, we packed it up and went in search of my Refuel with Chocolate Milk meeting.

I did some silly things for the cause, but it’s nothing I haven’t done before…IMG 2922 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

By this time it was after 1pm and Ben and I were HUNGRY. We wanted A LOT of good food and headed to Hash House a Go-Go

Ben spotted this B.L.T. Mary and had to try itIMG 2925 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

I’m not a bloody mary fan, but I tried it. It was good – super flavorful, but not too spicy.IMG 2933 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Since we’re out of town and can’t keep leftovers we decided to share the fried chicken and bacon waffles.IMG 2935 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

There were full on slices of bacon right in the middle of the waffle. It was definitely ridiculous. IMG 2937 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Adam from Man V. Food was here and I totally remember the episode. (Yes, I just realized I watch way too much food TV.) Here is a clip of the Hash House a Go Go episode.image thumb2 Best Food in Las Vegas

We were even harassed by a few new friends at the bar about our huge clean plate. Hopefully, they’ll write an email to Adam nominating me to be his next co-host.IMG 2944 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

After this feast we headed to Ghiradelli for a meet up. IMG 2951 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las VegasMy little peeps – Janae and SkinnyRunner IMG 2948 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Oh, I almost forgot I was here for a race and realized I needed to get my bib.IMG 2988 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

The Rock N’ Roll series is doing international races now! Running in Madrid?! Where do I sign?!IMG 2962 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

I ate a granola bar. This isn’t news. But it is carb loading.IMG 2964 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

On the way back I heard “free sample” from 72 yards away from Godiva…IMG 2971 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

The sales girl said this tasted like Christmas because it’s peppermint and white chocolate. But, I thought Christmas tasted like tamales and egg nog?!IMG 2970 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Finally we tried to find out way back to our hotel. IMG 2972 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

We caught a bit of the Stiletto Dash! IMG 2976 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

After a pit stop in the room we went to dinner at Chin Chin. Carb loading time!IMG 2986 600x800 thumb Best Food in Las VegasIMG 2978 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is called sin city because you can enjoy all your vices. My number one vice is fro-yo and now they have that too.IMG 2989 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las VegasIMG 2990 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

Want to bet I can eat more frozen yogurt than Adam Richman? It’s a bet you won’t lose!IMG 2992 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

All this fried chicken and fro-yo is really not helping me lose weight…IMG 2968 800x600 thumb Best Food in Las Vegas

    I wish we had that frozen yogurt around here, it looks fantastic!

    So was Ben trying to “help” on the breakfast front? It looks like he wasn’t sure what would make you feel better.

    Sometimes I can’t believe the things you eat! You must have a good stomach – some of those combos make me feel sick just looking at them (: After a case of food poisoning, I’ve been extra careful when eating – especially out-of-town!

    2 questions:
    1 – you were going to work out the same day as a race?? (or are you not racing tonight? i’m so confused!)
    2 – when did Hash House open a location in Vegas? i *heart* Hash House in San Diego! YUM!

    Have fun in Sin City! :)

    I’ve always wondered why are there so few women professional eaters….I think you and I could probably do a Fro-yo showdown with Adam Richman!

    By the way – I like your hair…nice little curl/flip at the ends! :)
