Aloha, acai, and hanging loose

by - Friday, April 23, 2010

Aloha! I hope that you're having a healthy, happy week! I just got home after spending a week in Hawaii and, since I'm still on Hawaiian time, I thought I'd post a quick hello.

I adore Hawaii- the water, the weather, the beaches, the tropical fruit, and "hanging loose". Despite the abundance of wonderful fruits, though, Waikiki is not the most vegetarian/vegan-friendly place that I've ever visited. It sometimes takes a bit of creativity (and accommodating restaurant employees) to build a vegetarian meal. Amazingly, though, our hotel was right across the street from a great little place called Ruffage Natural Foods. About 90% of their menu is vegetarian (much of it vegan) and I was very happy to be so close.

Also, I discovered the complete and total yumminess that is the acai bowl while I was in Hawaii! I am so looking forward to recreating that at home and I will share the recipe for my version soon!

Vacation always reminds me to slow down and have more fun. I usually come home with renewed focus on being gentle with myself and enjoying my family and friends in an unhurried way. It is almost the weekend; I hope you will take some time to nurture yourself, enjoy your connections, and just hang loose!

    I'm in the midst of the move ramp around here. May 21 is the departure day. I think I'll be in need of a vaca after this!
