We Have Removed the Smart Meter

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Aloha Everyone, here is a message from Healthy Hut Market & Cafe concerning the recent customer concern and removal of the smart meter:

A few months ago Healthy Hut opened up its store on Hookui Road and a smart meter was installed by Kaua‘i Island Utility Co-op. Some customers and employees had been asking questions about the safety of the smart meter and wondered whether there was a real and significant health risk to people at Healthy Hut. We too have heard a lot of conflicting information about smart meters and we decided to look over the available information with an open and unbiased mind. (more…)

Flourless Nut Pancakes for Breakfast or Anytime

Saturday, April 13th, 2013














Aloha All, here is the recipe for my latest and best version of flourless pancakes (some may remember my first version with almonds and bananas). The shaved coconut in this version holds the batter together much better than my last version, which only used almonds.

Portland Trade Show: Fun … and Exhausting

Friday, June 8th, 2012

The Portland Convention Center with its distinct glass towers

Navigating the 100’s of booths at the recent UNFI Tabletop Trade Show a little overwhelming to say the least. There was so much to see, so many people to talk to and so little time. Thanks to Monique, though, I had a list of orders for The Healthy Hut to guide me through.

One of the 'Clean-Air' zone parks in Portland

On my way to and around Portland, there were some nice things I noticed that made me smile, such as the recycling bins in the airport (strangely missing in Hawaii) and in the hotel rooms. There are “clean-air” zones scattered about Portland—little micro parks that are designated non-smoking and offer a lovely place to sit, rest and have a moment of peace. I enjoyed one of these parks on my walk to and from the trade show.

Back to the show: Held in the Portland Convention Center, with its uniquely-designed glass towers, the trade show was held for two days from Wednesday to Thursday. There were many familiar vendors there such as Bucha Kombucha company, Coco-Roons, Seasnacks and

Himala Salt company. There were also some exciting new companies such as Way Better chip company, who makes gluten-free, non-gmo sprouted grain chips in assorted flavors. Medicine Mama’s was another company who’s product I really liked. She makes Bee Magic Wand, a propolis and honey all-in-one lip and face balm that goes on so smooth and is a wonderful treat for chapped skin. Soothing Touch, was another great company based in The recycling bins at the Portland Convention Center, celebrating 20 years of sustainability.Santa Fe, who makes lip balms, massage oils and sore muscle treatments using ayurveda remedies as inspiration.

Well that is all for now. I will be exploring Portland until I return on the 13th. I will hit up some of the local health food stores, farmers markets and restaurant so check back.

Perks of the job: the many samples and treats I got at the show took two bags to fill!
