EAT LOCAL CHALLENGE IS ON!

I am a day late. The challenge officially began yesterday but I had to fly to Oʻahu and didn't return until 5 pm and then had errands to run. Long story short: don't try to eat local without proper preparation and control. So I am officially starting today, Monday. So far for breakfast: one local banana and 2 cups of 100% Kona coffee. Snacking currently on rambutan.

Lunch today consisted of one whole avocado and one rambutan. Water will be my friend until my evening salad. That and the other 8 rambutans staring at me.
Dinner was a mishmash of local delectables: crispy fried big island bacon (not sure where the pork came from to make it but i plead the don't ask, don't tell), radishes, arugula, baby romaine, spinach, and some homemade pesto dressing.  Topped it all off with a liliko'i sorbet.

  1. Good luck with your new adventure! I need to bone up on using Filipino veggies before I can join you. That's what's at our People's Open Market on most Saturdays.

  2. so...rambutan is considered local because it is GROWN here, right? just wanting to clarify the rules cause with so many imports, the lines often get fuzzy.
