Hello from Maui! I have a lot of FABULOUS guest posters this weekend. Did you catch Holly‘s post yesterday? I wanted to pop in to say hi for What I Ate Wednesday…on a Tuesday. Just go with it, ok? Thanks as always to Jenn.
I’ve been in Maui for almost 4 days now. It’s not all just beaches and palm trees-there’s lots of goof food too! It’s hard, I know.
I know I already discussed this, but my dad is a big fan of authentic Hawaiian food. He loved kalua pig and lau lau-pig wrapped in ti leaves. Since I’m not a pork eater (those pigs are too darn cute!), I used to always order the Loco Moco, which is a beef burger, rice, a fried egg, and gravy. These days I stay away from red meat, so I ordered the teriyaki chicken.
And of course dessert. I had to try a little of everything.
Since I don’t normally eat out quite this much and restaurant portions are usually large, my mom and I have been making an effort to share meals during this trip. Before going zip lining (!), we stopped in at a local hole in the wall sandwich shop.
Yesterday was a day with a ton of good eats. My sister and her boyfriend are training for a marathon, and yesterday they ran 16 miles. They were kind of ravenous afterwards, so we went somewhere near the run, and appetizers were in order. Nachos with guac? SIgn me up!
Dinner last night was also a highlight-we went to a nice dinner at Tommy Bahama since my sister’s boyfriend has to leave today. I ordered Jerk Chicken with mango salsa, Asian slaw, and almond rice. Everything was delicious.
A few unpictured but other things I’ve enjoyed so far- tropical fruits (mango, papaya, passion fruit) and chocolate covered macadamia nuts. Caramacs=the bomb. They’re caramel, macadamia nut, and chocolate. Yum.
As I’m sure you can tell, a lot of delicious and decadent food was eaten. This morning however, I’m suffering a bit of a sugar hangover and stomachache. I think I need to reign it in a little to survive the rest of this vacation with a smile on my face!
As always, I love talking to you guys! I won’t pop in again for a while, but I have some AWESOME guest posts scheduled so check back in for those!
What do you eat while on vacation? How do you stay healthy?
