Paleo Eats: 6/14/11 (Third Day In Kauai)

Pin It

Another fun and relaxing day in Kauai…

We woke up this morning at the crack of dawn since the kiddies don’t know you’re supposed to sleep in past 5:00 a.m. when you’re on vacation. Since everyone was awake, my sis and I cooked breakfast together. She threw together a purple sweet potato and onion hash…

image

…and I made a frittata with leftover Kalua pig, sautéed local Alii mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and onions.

Another tasty Paleo breakfast brought to you by Costco…

image

We spent the morning swimming in the pool and I grazed on nibbles at every turn. I snacked on a Paleo Kit, homemade smoked wild salmon (courtesy of my absent brother-in-law), leftover roasted broccoli…

image

…and spicy poke from Fish Express.

image

I gotta admit that the spicy poke was not my favorite even though I tried to salvage it with some extra seasoning, avocado, and chopped mac nuts.

For lunch, I chowed on leftovers: Kalua pig, braised cabbage, green beans, and sliced tomatoes.

image

I was excited to check out the Waipa farmer’s market in the afternoon but even though there was a large sweaty crowd waiting to stream in exactly at 2:00 p.m….

image

…the pickings were slim and the prices were astronomical. I bought myself a fresh coconut because it was so flipping hot — but it cost me $6!

image

I was really disappointed with the market and probably won’t be checking out any more this week.

Afterwards, we headed to Banana Joe’s

image

…where we ate some frosties (frozen banana, pineapple, or both pushed through a juicer)…

image

image

…and we checked out their goodies.

This small shack is chock full of Paleo goodies: pastured eggs, organic produce, assorted macadamia nut oils, spice blends, and roasted macadamia nut butter. Love this place!

Then, we stopped by Kilauea Fish Market where we picked up some fresh raw prawns.

image

At dinnertime, my sis and I divided cooking duties again. I was in charge of the proteins so I sautéed prawns and onions seasoned with Aloha Spice Company’s organic aloha seafood seasoning…

image

image

…and nuked the remaining lau lau.

My sis prepared a green salad tossed with a yummy, perfectly-balanced vinaigrette…

image

…and a zesty tomato and green bean salad.

image

Here’s my dinner plate:

Eek! Our vacation is half over!
