Burger Bar

When in Vegas......

Burger Bar @ Mandalay Bay
Chef Hubert Keller, designed some pretty incredible burgers like the Rossini:
with truffles and grilled onions. Or you can make your own burger:
Buffalo, Turkey, Salmon, even Vegan.
I had the all natural grass fed burger, w skinny fries.
We also ordered The best onion rings ever.

And tons of beer on tap.


Desserts looked pretty spectacular, but we were too full to indulge.

Garbanzo dip

I am allergic to sesame seeds which means no tahini, which means most store bought hummus is out. SO......this recipe is a great alternative, and it could be altered any number of ways add your own touch or substitute the mint with any other green, cilantro, basil

1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed. Set the liquid from can aside for later.
half a lemon squeezed
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 cup chopped mint leaves
4 radishes chopped
pinch sea salt and cracked pepper

mash garbanzos, oil, and S&P until slightly creamy.
add radish,garlic, and mint
add the garbanzo juice slowly by the teaspoon until dip holds together better.
refridgerate for 30 minutes serve w veggies or pita chips

Gluten free/dairy free pizza in NYC

We are traveling to NY in a week and the prospect of not being able to eat my favorite NY slice is making me very sad. Today I have decided I am going to take this opportunity to find the perfect GF/DF slice in NY instead of hanging my head in sorrow. Will be posting my findings soon.
IN the meantime if anyone has any recommendations of great GF/DF food in NY, I would be much obliged.

food allergies

went to allergist yesterday to see if i am in fact allergic to tomatoes after suspecting so from a slice of pizza and lots of salsa prior. I am apparently more allergic to wheat and dairy which would explain why i was all itchy and bumpy and throat closey after the slice. BUMMER!
So prognosis is allergic to: Wheat, rye, barley, oats, dairy, pork, beef, pistachios, sesame seeds, tomato, eggplant, and bell peppers. yeesh...
a 2 month elimination diet commences today, cutting out all of the above.
Dinner tonight, sauteed collard greens..yam..with carrots coconut raisin salad.
I am looking forward to seeing how my skin and overall health reacts to the new diet.
Today the worse part was realizing i can longer even have oatmeal.
