Grub worthy Maui: Kihei Caffe


  
  
We checked out the Kihei Caffe while in Maui. It’s a busy spot – so get there early! Any later than 9:15am, expect to wait in line. This joint is cafeteria style – you wait in line to order, grab a table, then they serve your grub to you. My husband ordered the Mac Nut and Banana pancakes and I had to try out their loco moco. Let me start by saying these portions are HUGE! The loco moco was delicious for the fact that I got it with fried rice instead of white rice, and that the gravy was DEEEELISH! You could tell it was homemade gravy.   The pancakes were filling and amazing and of course we had to have it with the coconut syrup!
Check this place out if you get a chance!

Simply Delicious Breakfast!


Sometimes the best things in life are the most simple! I love this combo: one slice of toasted multigrain bread, a tablespoon of natural peanut butter, 5-6 slices of banana and a drizzle of honey! I can never get enough!

Total carbohydrates: 35.5 grams

Here is the breakdown:

1/2 underripe banana: 11-12 grams
Multigrain bread: 17 grams
1 T of natural peanut butter: 1.5 grams
1/2 t natural honey: 6 grams

Good Morning! A simple and delicious breakfast of champs!


20140328-071450.jpg

Coffee with Almond/Coconut milk (of course).

Steel cut oats (1/2 cup) with a sliced banana, blueberries and strawberries. Drizzle a tiny bit of honey if you have a sweet tooth!

Note: I use bananas that are not as ripe because very ripe bananas have a higher sugar content as well as a higher glycemic index!
