    Quite a few Chipotle restaurants, but there just isn't much else unless you're willing to pay a bit more for the good stuff. If you're not worried about crap oils, it's a lot easier to find something that will work. Everyone else cooks with soybean oil, almost without exception.

    On the bright side, more and more "egg" restaurants (Egg & I, Cracked Egg...) are popping up here and there, but they usually close around 3pm. You've got a pretty good shot at finding something that's at least gluten free there.

    And many of the bars/pubs serve either their breakfast menu or their full menu 24/7, so you could get an omelette.

    I just drove through Las Vegas. If the billboards can be believed, cheap steak dinners are available if you stay at some hotels.

    Sadly, the days of $3 buffets are long gone. Well, maybe not entirely, but you don't want to eat at the ones that have them. Scary.

    True about the steak deals in some of the casino cafes. Not great stuff, but it would work.

    I live in Vegas and while you may not find grass fed/organic at the restaurants, eating out can be done with minimal damage if you plan ahead. Most buffets offer a few different protein only options (think prime rib or shrimp cocktail - minus the sugary cocktail sauce) and a nice salad made to your liking, as well as seasonal fruit.

    If I'm eating at a non-buffet restaurant, I always look it up on line in advance and see what menu options will work for me.

    If you're eating on the run, I would look for a Subway type place. I always get a salad (spinach only for the greens) and lots of vegies with a little meat and some cheese for protein. I bring my own dressing, but if it's not an option, I ask for some of the ranch dressing from the squeeze bottle or a little oil/vinegar rather than their nasty low-cal dressing packets.

    We also have a few Whole Foods locations here which have lots of great hot and cold take and go options. They are kind of spendy, but propbably cheaper than your final bill at a sit down restaurant. If you are staying on the strip, there's one relatively close at Town Square which is always a nice place to hang out and browse for shopping as well a the recent addition of the farmer's market on Fri.

    you won't have any problems. las vegas is overly accommodating with food menus (assuming you eat at good places). just tell them how you want it cooked, what ingredients you don't want, and they'll do it.

    On my drive from So Cal to Wyoming I brought a cooler of lettuce wrap ingredients, fruit and other easy to eat things. I stopped at a Whole Foods in Utah on the way home and got more lettuce wrap stuff, gourmet cheese included. I ate a whole package of smoked salmon, too. I also brought a can opener with me so I could eat canned salmon. I only went out to eat twice, both times for egg breakfasts. Maybe not practical if you are staying in a hotel for several days, but if they have a small fridge, it might be very practical.

    Apart from the beer I drink when I'm there, I don't have too much problem staying quasi-primal.

    I usually hit a buffet for late breakfast and get an omelet, bacon and other protein and fat, along with some fruit. Then, I skip lunch and have a big steak or prime rib for dinner with tons of vegetables and a salad.

    I don't worry about the O6-O3 or weight issues for the few days I'm there. There are a lot of food options... It's a vacation, enjoy yourself and get back with the program when you get home.
