So windy today!!! So much for surfing.....oh well, at least I was able to get some much needed errands done on the other side of the island :-)
First things first...
Carrot Beet Juice
3 large organic carrots
2 local oranges
1.5" local fresh ginger
1 small local organic beet
Then I was off to Paia....
Coconut Palms, outside of Baldwin Beach taken from the Hana Highway ( I was stuck in traffic....nice )
Flatbread Pizza in Paia ( This place rocks! )
Baldwin Ave in Paia, this little northshore town always makes me happy...
( except parking is a bitch )
This was my destination this afternoon...
Good 'ol no frills "Mana Foods" on Baldwin Ave. Paia Town.
I LOVE this place....I seriously could spend hours in here just checking everything out.....too much fun stuff for the health conscious foodie!
Raw Vegan Deli....everything looked fantastic.
Check out the young coconuts lining the floor:-)
Beautiful but $$$.....
I actually went to Manas to grab some staple dry goods and condiments but as you can see it's easy to get distracted:-) I practiced a lot of self control today.....( look at those heirlooms! )
4 boxes of organic almond milk
2 boxes Ak-Mak crackers
pitted kalamata olives
organic sunflower oil
Forbidden rice ( black rice )
Total Damage: $57.79 ouch....
After that, I drove up the highway a bit to check out Ho'okipa Beach Park. I over heard some people talking about how messy the waves were and how nobody was surfing OR even kiting...That's rare for the famous Ho'okipa breaks ( fyi....Ho'okipa scares the crap out of me....I'll only surf it on a dying swell. I've seen wayyyyy too many rogue waves here....I'm too old for that these days. )
pretty color water though.....
Okay, hungry now....next stop, "Alive and Well Natural Foods" for veggie sushi :-)
Perfect, exactly what I wanted...nummy!
Paia is over an hour from my home so I didn't get home until late afternoon. Traffic was really bad coming into Lahaina Town ( west Maui ) because they are in the middle of widening the road ( long over due! ) So, by the time I got home my gym plans flew out the window....oh well, no biggie.... I got a pretty good workout yesterday surfing and playing frisbee golf I think :-)
Pre Dinner Snack

Annie's Goddess dressing
1 Fabulous Flats whole wheat naan
