Last updated: October 17, 2019 at 4:06 pm. Posted by in Las Vegas Restaurants. 1 Comment on Vegas Celebrates National Vegetarian Month.

As the vegan foodie / writer here at Total Vegas Blog, you know I had to represent for my fellow veggie heads. We’re about halfway through National Vegetarian Month in Las Vegas, but we’re out here celebrating year round. Also, World Vegan Month is November so you have more of a reason to love your veggies.

Savor these vegetarian dishes in Vegas and if you’re strictly vegan, we have those options in Vegas too. Even if you’re just trying to eat healthy, you’ll appreciate National Vegetarian Month in Vegas:

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
