Aloha! Merry Xmas!! And Happy New Year! ….. in May~  We thought this vid might put a big smile on your face…We went camping on one of our favorite secret beaches for Xmas as well as New Years this last year. Since then I have had major computer issues on and off and have never gotten to putting this up. It made us realize how fast the year is going. We hope the first half of this year has been fabulous for you and that all of your wishes are coming true!

Delicious Durian Tasting January 2, 2011

Aloha! We had to share yet another amazing Maui tropical fruit VIDEO with you – This one here is known as the “King of Fruits” …. Its big and reptilian looking with a bunch of thorny spines and it stinks like no other, but apparently offers us much in regards to health and nutrition.

This should be on your “foods I gotta try bucket list” …  Check it out~

It happens to be made up of  high levels of tryptophan (the feel good amino acid) which raises serotonin levels and helps to lift the spirit!! MMmmm. Euphoric… And said to increase libido… hmmm….

It is also known for its beautifying effects on your skin. Which I love to hear… It has high concentration of raw oleic fats (good fat) (and vitamin E), sulphur compounds, and soft proteins which all aid to our skins health. Not to mention anti inflammatory, anti-oxidant, energizing, blood cleansing, the list goes on.

This is a truly magical food! I am so grateful to have access to this beautiful thornball of nutrition!! LOL! I love it!!!

We love you!!!

Best Way to Start the Day…. Magical Fruit Bowl September 6, 2010

Holy Panini Dragon Fruit!!!! Way to start the day! It was such a beautiful Maui morning here and we have our friend Michelle visiting from San Diego… so we are immersing her into Mother Maui. We started early with a green smoothie and a beach walk on Baldwin Beach, took a nice dunk in the salt water then enjoyed some powerful Power Yoga outside on our lanai, followed by this delectable tropical treat!!!! It was an amazing morning. She absolutely loved it! And Im still freeking over this magical fruit bowl.

This is by far the BEST tropical fruit bowl I have ever tasted! Chris made it for us with LOTS o’ LOVE as you can tell . This tropical treat had SO much succulent yumminess, I couldn’t resist a photo and a post! Isn’t it just GORGEOUS!!!!! I am sooo thankful and grateful. I will list the recipe for you it is worth tracking down the ingredients. Even if you have to come and get them. 🙂

We have been aiming to eat mostly local foods and we did pretty good on this dish. Its harder than you realize but we are pretty lucky living here on this bountiful tropical island. A lot came from our property or from our friends properties.

This particular bowl included ~

  • Panini lime lilikoi base (blended and strained)
  • banana
  • papaya
  • a crazy Maui apple/pear thingy??? dont know name?
  • dragon fruit (the hot pink stuff)
  • fresh sliced coconut and fresh mint!!!!

It was THE perfect sweet hydration after that power yoga.

Here is Michelle and me at the beach~

Heres wishing you a beauteous day, too.

Lots of love,

Chris & Sara & Michelle

Aloha-
We had a BEAUTIFUL Rain Forest adventure the other day in the magical Iao Valley, which in Hawaiian translates to “Cloud Supreme”….  This gorgeous stream cut valley gets over 360 inches of rain per year!! It is so green and lush and WET!!! 🙂  We love it! There is great hiking and swimming and we ended up heading upstream without a paddle… LOL.
We even had a nap on a rock!! The best nap I’ve had in 10 years!!! Seriously. Hope this vid gives you a little taste of the serenity…
The stream and all the trees and even surprise freaky fancy flowers!!! It is purely heaven here!
Lots of love to you~

Grow Your Own Food August 24, 2010

Aloha! Having fun in the garden again…

We just planted a ton O’ seeds the other day. I love growing our own food. Not only is it so freeeekin tasty, Whoa! It is just sooo awesome to watch as you place a tiny little miniscule seed into dirt, add water and some sunshine (and love) and it transforms before your very eyes into a large beauteous LIVING nutrition providing plant!!!! I am just astounded! 🙂

We planted lettuce, purple cabbage, kale, 3 different chards, tomato, broccoli, collards, cilantro, chiles, and even a few different flowers. We also transplanted lilikoi, mint, papayas, night blooming jasmine and lavender. It is amazing how easy it really is. We filled some containers with dirt, poked a few holes into it and filled em with seeds! Within a week we will see sprouts on some of them. I can’t believe how fast they grow – and soon we get enjoy the yumminess and make some amazing food with our bounty!

We made a little video to share as we planted and transplanted~ hope you enjoy~

Lots of love ~ Chris & Sara
