Last Thursday I headed to Las Vegas to spend the weekend with my FIL and his fiance and help out with a pregnancy related project for their raw food company (I will get more into that later). My husband flew in on Friday evening so we got to have a nice little weekend getaway!
Here is a little recap of our weekend:
First of all...let's talk about these views from my FIL's condo:
This is the view of the Red Rocks from the back side of the condo and our room...
And this is the view of the strip from the front side and living room area....
Pretty awesome huh?
They live about 15 minutes from the strip.
So, here is a little bit more about this new project I get to be involved in...
My FIL's fiance, Meka, is the CEO of Raw Fusion Foods which she founded in 2010. Her, her Mom and the rest of their team provide catering for events, create new recipes, have published books, produce instructional videos on their recipes and raw food techniques and much, much more.
One of their next big projects is to write a book on pregnancy nutrition and a book on baby food. And that is where I come in, since I am preggo! I am kind of like a research project ( or my official title- Media Consultant ). I spent all day Thursday and Friday trying raw food recipes, learning about the best nutrition for pregnant women and reading pregnancy books and raw food cookbooks. I learned SO much!
Then on Saturday, I spent the day with Meka and a video camera and recorded a series of videos about my diet, my pregnancy so far and raw food in general.
Here are just a few of the recipes I tried:
Raw dips, crackers and chips ( the dehydrated beet chips are AAAMAZING )

Sunday morning it was time to head back home to Texas! We wanted to stop by the famous Vegas sign on the way to the airport so I could take some pictures:
