As a mom, I tend to get stuck in certain ruts and I am always looking for new ideas to make meals more appetizing, fun, and nutritious. While visiting Hawaii and Disney’s Aulani resort, I was inspired by all the delicious food I tried. The fruits and vegetables were so fresh that I ate healthier while I was there. My trip also inspired me to try new things, such as macadamia-encrusted Mahi Mahi, which is crunchy and so tasty. Pineapples, papaya, tomatoes, shaved coconut, and brightly colored peppers all gave each dish a unique flavor that you can bring home. That way you can say Aloha (goodbye) to boring dinners!
If you’d rather drink your fruit , try mixing up passion fruit, orange, and guava for your own POG juice. I couldn’t get enough of this juice cocktail while I was at Aulani.
Here are a few easy ways your can give a Hawaiian touch to your everyday meals without having to hop on a plane.
