Walk, Shop, Snack

Hi everyone! It’s meeeee again:) I have a lot of pictures to post and didn’t want to overload ya’ll in the morning, so here’s some more Vegas fun from today 😀

shopping Goofer 🙂

We had breakfast at an AWESOME restaurant in the Paris resort, called Mon Ami Gabi.

Everything on the menu looked pretty face-rocking.

We each had some fresh orange juice:


I chose the egg white omelet, with no sauce and no cheese (so it was basically a giant egg puff), with fruit and gluten-free bread… which ended up being MILLET BREAD. I could have kissed the server 😉


With buttah and preserves:


Check out the GIANT hunk of coffee cake that the pilot ordered.

This piece was seriously massive… here’s his hand in the pic for reference

Um, yeah. To make it even more amazing, the coffee cake was fresh out of the oven. The top was crispy and inside was soft and gooey. I had a few bites and tried to keep my moaning at an indoor-moaning level 😉 Foodgasm.

The pilot’s eggs benedict:


After brunch, we walked and walked….

and shopped 😀


and before we knew it, it was lunchtime.

I really wanted to show the pilot the glory of the Canyon Ranch grill at the Venetian (where Ashley and I ate on Friday) so we grabbed lunch from there.

A carrot, apple, beet, ginger juice


Quinoa Salad


Greek chopped salad with no cheese


And the pilot’s BBQ salmon and veggies


‘Twas legendary 😀


We’re just resting our feeties at the hotel for a sec before getting ready for dinner and I might do a yoga podcast to stretch. After Mesa Grill, we’ll probably walk around and then watch the fountains at the Bellagio again before we come back to pack.

See ya bright and early from the airport 🙂

    That place looks gorgeous! And the salmon and the veggies sound especially yummy.

    Sure that’s not an entire cake rather than just one slice? 😉

      seriously, huh?? it was huge!!

  2. Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) on April 25, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    I love Canyon Ranch! I stay at The Venetian everytime we go to Vegas (well lately anyway) and I always hit up their gym and juice!

    Mon Ami Gabi is a favorite as well. Good choices Gina!

  3. Alicia on April 25, 2010 at 9:03 pm

    The salmon at Mesa is face rockin’. And, please, do not leave without trying a Cactus Pear margarita! Let the Bobby Flay foodgasms commence, Gina!

  4. Allison @ Food For Healing on April 25, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    man you are slim!

  5. Anne @ Your Kind of Salad on April 25, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    Girl, Mon Ami Gabi is one of my FAVORITE restaurants in Vegas – SO SO good; when I was there last summer, we went twice. Delish! We also adore Postrio at the Venetian (AMAZING vegetarian side dishes – which are perfect as a meal) – Enjoy Vegas, I’m going in June and can’t wait 🙂

  6. Lauren @ BIOCHEMISTA on April 25, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    The quinoa salad looks great! I had quinoa tabouleh the other night and it was AWESOME. I’m gonna have to recreate that! I wonder if you could make quinoa “burgers” like the brown rice ones you made the other night….? Hmmm 🙂

  7. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on April 25, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    I can’t wait to hear about Mesa Grill! Have a blast!

  9. Vivian on April 25, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Mm, all the food looks delicious. Do you find it difficult to make healthy eating choices when you’re traveling so much?

  10. kate on April 25, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    Love Vegas! Not into gambling (because I’m terrible and I’d rather shop with my money than hand it over to a dealer), but there is so much more to do there. The eats look great!

  14. Lauren @ eater not a runner on April 25, 2010 at 9:38 pm

    Aww i had a blast when I was in vegas last time…but it was the middle of July so it was blazing hot. That coffee cake looks ridiculously amazing. I feel an empty void now…

  24. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on April 25, 2010 at 10:16 pm

  28. carrie on April 25, 2010 at 10:31 pm

  29. Edith on April 25, 2010 at 10:41 pm

  30. Melissa @ For the Love of Health on April 25, 2010 at 10:44 pm

    that piece of cake was visually satisfying! 🙂

  31. Chloe (Naturally Frugal) on April 25, 2010 at 10:58 pm

    It’s great to see that even in Vegas you can find food that meets your dietary requirements. Looks like a lot of fun!

  32. kelsey@snackingsquirrel.com on April 25, 2010 at 11:39 pm

  34. Allie (Live Laugh Eat) on April 26, 2010 at 1:10 am

    There’s a Mon Ami Gabi literally 2 blocks from my parents’ place and my mom is OBSESSED with it. I’ve been once and it was nothing short of fab. Enjoy the last hours of your vacay!

  35. Lauren on April 26, 2010 at 7:05 am

  38. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman on April 26, 2010 at 8:16 am

    Everything looks so good (OK, minus the kinda boring egg white puff) and now I’m craving that salmon bigtime!

    • Fitnessista on April 26, 2010 at 8:43 am

      you’re right.. it was kinda boring

  39. Katie on April 26, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Love the dress/skirt! 🙂 Cute!

  40. Kate on April 26, 2010 at 11:07 am

    OMG, the coffee cake looks amazing!!

  41. Nidia on April 26, 2010 at 11:43 am

    I’m so jealous! You guys look like your having a great time. I’m originally from Las Vegas and am now living in Virgina with my hubby (he’s stationed here).

    Your making me homesick! lol

  42. Nidia on April 26, 2010 at 11:50 am

    I forgot to add…you should try China Grill at the Mandalay Bay. Other then having fun bathrooms (their design), they have the best crispy spinach side dish.

    • Fitnessista on April 26, 2010 at 7:40 pm

      ahhh! next time….

  43. Carolyn @ lovinlosing on April 26, 2010 at 11:56 am

    That eggs benedict looks amazing!!

  44. Rebecca @ How the Cookies Crumble on April 26, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    Mon Ami Gabi! Another one of my favorite places here in Vegas! I found this place several years ago before I had moved here and it’s always a MUST when friends come to visit!

    • Rebecca @ How the Cookies Crumble on April 26, 2010 at 2:14 pm

      I also found out it’s a chain so you can hit it up in other great cities like DC, but no where else can you sit on the patio and eat AND enjoy the fountains at Bellagio!

  45. Salah@myhealthiestlifestyle on April 27, 2010 at 8:52 pm

    looks amazing!!!!
