Well, we’re on a working vacation, wanting to keep this year’s time share points from expiring without use. It’s A-OK with me though, as I don’t mind working and it’s such a treat anytime I get to come to the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. 🙂

Take a tour with me before the rain starts as I show you the flowers and natural beauty of the west side of the island.

And hauʻoli lā hānau to thtis week’s birthday girls, Carlie and Connie!

Beach Walk 113 OTR – Treat Your Taste Buds

I’m in Santa Fe, New Mexico this week, walking in the arroyo today talking about Ayurvedic eating.

h3. About Today’s Show

There’s a new restaurant in town, Annapurna, “the place for healing cuisine.” Santa Fe is packed full of healers and those wanting to be healed – you can find virtually any type of practitioner imaginable from the common to the most esoteric.

I have found the practice of Ayurveda very helpful in my life. It began in India thousands of years ago, and is increasingly popular and relevant today. Today I talked about the six tastes, and how feeding each of them regularly helps to manage weight and food cravings. Like most things, I use what I like and leave the rest alone.

Beach Walk 77 – ʻOno Kine Grinds

Hey, let’s go to the Farmer’s Market and check out the ‘ono kine grinds (the yummy food) and flowers!

h3. About Today’s Show

A little change of pace today to share some of the good eats we have here in Hawai’i. For me, there is something special about eating the food that’s grown right nearby, as compared to being shipped in from a far off place. Mind you, living here on the island we depend on stuff shipped in from far off places, but nonetheless I think the home grown goodies taste ever so special.
