I could write you a book about my time in Salt Lake, but I’ll spare you all of the details and give you the highlight reel- with a lot of pictures, not just words.
One of the huge wins:
Waking up to this view every morning
Can it really get much better than this?
I mentioned in my last post that I had been eating fully raw. While my intention was to continue that to the best of my ability while in Salt Lake… it didn’t exactly happen.
I have no regrets though.
My one regret was accidentally going to an all vegan restaurant for dinner the first night we were there. Mind you, I’m the only vegan in the group of my friends that went to Utah. One of my friends googled “Grass-fed burgers in Salt Lake”, and found our dinner option. After we had already ordered drinks, and had begun to order our food, we found out that everything on the menu was vegan. Burgers, wings, sandwiches, cheeses. The whole nine yards.
This was the reaction when we were informed:
Can you blame them?
After this unfortunate experience (and my first with vegan meat and cheese), I have to say that I will never dare try that again. It’s just not for everyone (me). I’m going to stick to fruits, vegetables, and the occasional grain. If I wanted to eat meat and cheese, I would eat the real stuff.
That being said,
I had an AWESOME experience at an all raw-vegan place called Rawtopia (check out their website by clicking). This will definitely be a place that I frequent when in Salt Lake. It was all raw, all vegan, and all delicious. Even my friend (who is NOT a vegan) LOVED it!
These pictures don’t do it justice because we had already begun to dig in before I realized that I wanted to document the moment…and my camera was my iPhone 5C.
Another awesome Raw find was this juicery called Vive. (Again, click)
All fresh, cold pressed juice- and it was delicious! My husband actually took me on a date here.. not your “norm” date, but boy does he know his wife well!
They had green juices (my personal favorite), root juices, fruit juices, and more!
Though we did a lot of eating while there, we also did some exercising, and touring the city of course.
Let me tell you, running hills is a lot more fun with this unbelievable view in front of you the whole time.
If you’ve never been to Salt Lake City, you should go (or move there)! It’s an incredible place!
