My son will be upset when he finds out I ruined another one of his pocket knives trying to cut up some of this net. Thinking it won’t be as bad as time I used one of his new pocket knives to pick opihi. (Hey, in my own defense I wasn’t planning to pick opihi so it’s all I had! Lol.) On a serious note, these nets aren’t funny...they damage our eco systems, sea life gets entangled in them and it’s difficult to remove. Today, my morning mission was a selfie and clean up what I could drag or carry. Got a good hunk of net, summoned my inner tita and I dragged a chunk all the way to trash can. If can, can. If no can, call for back up...🙌🏻 . . . . . . . . . . #nature #naturelovers #outdoors #instadaily beachlife #islandlife #oceanlover #oceanadvocate #saveouroceans #protectouroceans #protectourplanet #ghostnets #oceantrash #instamood #cleanourbeaches #bethechange #malama #malamakauai #malamaaina #malamakekai #malamahonua #livepono #3forthesea #itstartswithme #livealoha #alohaeveryday #onelove
Subscribe to my #youtube https://m.youtube.com/c/alexlandrythemoringaman for this @hawaiifarmersunionunited Kaua’i chapter educational video. I filmed it last Sunday. I made another one last year at a monthly meeting where we took a deep dive into #vermacomposting #101 #permaculture #koreannaturalfarming #farmersmarket #malamakauai #taroburger #tumeric #honey #kava #contentcreator #youtubers
If this photo takes your breath away like it does mine, and you care about the future of Kaua’i please read the following: The current approximate population of Kaua’i is 72,159. Total registered voters is currently 43,520 and only 18,818 or 43.2% of those registered actually voted in the primary election. I’m sure if you’re a resident of Kaua’i you’ve complained about our traffic situation at least once😆 I know I have! Well that is just one issue that the various mayor and county council members have very different solutions on how they will address the issue, which will tremendously impact our community for years to come. Every election is important to vote but this is a big year for the future of our island. Please register and please execute your right to vote if you are able. Despite what you may think, every single vote does count. . . . #Kuleana #Vote #malamaKauai #DontJustBeHereBeInvolved

Our Annual Niumalu Canoe Club, Unalau cleanup day! It was looking better than usual, since last years cleanup with a hundred plus volunteers. We still walked out with 6 burlap bags of plastic, floats, and trash. We also left a big pile of baskets and heavier items that may need to be hauled out by boat or helicpter. #plasticbeach #malamakauai #niumalunation #sustainablecoastlineshawaii
#TBT A couple times last school year lunch was themed. The idea was to eat fruits and vegetables that were a color of the rainbow. It was enjoyed and many people tried new fruits and vegetables for the first time. 🌈La Anuenue (Rainbow Day)🌈 Salad bar stocked with an assortment of fun and interesting fruits and vegetables to choose from. Mahalo Kumu Josh for the Demonstration with the veggies from your local garden. Mahalo @malama_kauai for hosting the fun and success lunch!

Dear Pineapple, we’re breaking up. Don’t worry, it’s me, not you. You didn’t ask to be exported to Hawai’i. You didn’t ask for the tumultuous cultivation of your crop by the Hawaiian people who were suffering a cultural genocide. You didn’t ask to become the official mascot of the Hawaiian islands because colonizers dictated so. You didn’t ask to be exploited by some farmers who charge upwards of $40 per pineapple. However, I am unable to use you when creating recipes from Hawai’i without feeling guilty of cultural insensitivity. You are delicious, beautiful and loved by many, but you are not representative of native foods to Hawai’i, and for that, we must break up. Not that we won’t see each other, or that I won’t sometimes indulge in you, but when it comes to Hawai’i...I’m just not that into you.
SoHa Koloa beach clean up day was a success!!! 🤙🏼💕 I have SO much love for our team and each of these pretty babes! -missing some- 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ Happy Saturday! ☀️🌊🐚🐠🐬🐳 #happyheart #malamakauai #beachcleanup #teambonding #sunshine #&girlchats

Just a few pics of the things my kiddos & I found during our evening beach walk. This eastside beach is a popular, local fishing spot. Lately, fishing has been good. I know this by the plastic trash, metal fish hooks, etc. left on the sand, in the foliage, on the trees. Our beautiful beaches and ocean won’t be beautiful for long if we don’t take care... . . . . . #beach #beachwalk #beachlife #malama #malamaaina #malamahonua #malamakauai #pickupyourtrash #pickupyouropala #pickupafteryourself #leavenotrace #leavenomark #motherearth #respecttheaina #islandlove #pickup3 #saveouroceans #saveourplanet #sharethelove #bethechange

Like many of you, we've been keeping a close eye on our family, friends and colleagues whose lives have been affected by the recent natural disasters in the state of Hawaii. Our hearts break for those that have lost so much, yet we see how hope can be renewed when a community bands together. We want to show our aloha to those in need, starting with our neighbors in Kauai who are still recovering from the devastating floods in April. 🌺 ALOHA BOX With the help of some of our friends, we've created an "Aloha Box" filled with locally made treats. Each box sells for $55.00 and 45% of the profits will be donated to @malama_kauai , a non-profit organization that has been serving the Kauai community for over a decade.

🌈💦KAUA’I, Hawai’i “The Garden Isle” is the latest in my Botanical Island Series! 🌿Kaua’i is known for its rainbows, waterfalls and lush rainforests! Kaua’i’s official plant is the mokihana, shown at the bottom of my painting. Its chartreuse and blush berries are prized in lei! Kaua’i has some of the best produce in the world (stop by @fehringfarmkauai !) and some of the best kalo is grown in Hanalei! 🌱 #wander #travel #botanicalgardens #luckywelivehawaii #kauailove #kauaiadventures #mokihana #kauairoadtrip #kauaimemories #botanical #floral #alohakauai #malamakauai #hawaiiart #hawaiiartist #hawaiiproduce #hawaiian #travelhawaii #explore #strawberryguava #pineapple #kalo #taro #plumeria #coconut #hawaiieats #treefern #maile #mailelei #mango
Fantastic symposium on why the mainland is so intrigued by Hawaiian cuisine. Thank you to all the panelists for an engaging and thought provoking discussion. @chefsamchoy you are the king! Thank you for paving the way for the rest of us. @marthacheng so excited for your new book! @jkeao of @ainarestaurant Keep fighting the good fight and inspiring a new wave of chefs to honor our ‘aina and hoilina mau (perpetuate legacy). Your restaurant is the perfect representation of honoring our heritage. Thank you to the teams with @dkiinstitute and Zocalo for curating a diverse panel and providing a space for community discourse. I cannot wait to work with you all in the future!

This is real poke. Locally caught fish, inamona, kukui nut oil, onions, and real Hawaiian salt. Many of you know my disdain for mainland poke. Poke is political for me. The representation is inaccurate; disrespectful. Poke ingredients have historical reverence. The mainland treats poke as the latest and greatest food trend. The capitalistic cultural appropriation is ruining the authenticity of cuisine that is significant to the Hawaiian culture. Poke is a celebration of local Hawaiian flavors. Covering poke with coconut, mango, kale and edamame and serving it over rice is as far and away from traditional poke as possible. Mainland "poke" shops have conditioned people to believe they are eating real poke, so when they come to Hawaii they don't understand why they’re unable to customize their “bowl” and why they can't have rice and “toppings.” (cringe) I hate seeing mainland “poke” as a “healthy” food trend. Poke is the wheel that didn’t need to be reinvented. Traditional poke is delicious, but mainland poke shops owners made a choice to cover it up with additives like fruit, kale, sweet sauce and rice. I value tradition and my culture, and it saddens me to know people on the mainland may never really enjoy real poke when they’ve been taught to believe the cartoon caricature they’ve been eating is poke. If you’re in Oahu tomorrow, @chefsamchoy and @jkeao are hosting a symposium on why the mainland is fascinated by Hawaiian food in Kaka’ako. I’m looking forward to a great discussion.
Stephanotis, or the official scent of Kauai (to me). Similar to a tuberose in fragrance, these vine like flowers permeate the air on the west side of Kauai. We use them in leis, mostly for weddings, but since it’s June you can see people picking them for graduation. Whenever I come home to Kauai, it’s the first scent that welcomes me from the plane and makes for a warm homecoming. . . . . . . #livemoremagic #stephanotis #flowers #fragrance #leis #luckywelivehawaii #creativebusiness #communityovercompetition #seekinspirecreate #creativelifehappylife #inspire #livetocreate #cultureclub #chef #foodsofinstagram #instafood #recipedeveloper #cuisine #farmtotable #organic #riseup #malamaaina #kauai #smallbusiness #malamakauai #hawaii #foodislife #holinamau #perpetuatelegacy

Hi 👋🏼 there! I thought I should introduce myself, ie. humanize this account, so hey, I’m Larissa! I’m from the west side of Kauai and this lovely lady with me is my late Grandma Hatsumi. She was the love of my life and the inspiration behind my love for all things gastronomy. Like my sweet little blueberry, I am a chef. My Grandma was the driving force of my culinary love affair and she taught me that creating delicious, thoughtful food would bring people joy and nourish their souls. Food was a vehicle for love. And she put all of her love in her food. • I have a background in marketing, social media and journalism. I have a love/hate relationship with the tedious algorithms of certain platforms, but I’m well versed in working my way around them. I love helping small businesses and established businesses reach their media goals. I LOVE creating meaningful and authentic content for passionate business owners. Social media can be overwhelming for new businesses, so my job is to take the stress out of the who, what, where, when, and why of branding content. • I am also a recipe developer and food stylist. I’ve worked in kitchens all over Los Angeles. I’ve worked for celebrity caterers, Top Chefs, celebrities, nutritionists, private chefs, resorts etc. My father is also a chef from France and my uncle owns many popular, award-winning restaurants in Los Angeles. Passion for food is in my blood. I believe having a strong culinary background helps with communicating the needs of my gastronomic clients. • Let me know how I can help you build your media! My website is coming soon as well as a proper email. Feel free to DM me for a chat! Until then, aloha plenty! _________________________________________________ . . . . . . #livemoremagic #thisismywhy #livepassionately #authenticityalways #kokua #foodstyling #creativebusiness #communityovercompetition #seekinspirecreate #creativelifehappylife #inspire #livetocreate #cultureclub #chef #foodsofinstagram #instafood #recipedeveloper #cuisine #farmtotable #organic #riseup #malamaaina #kauai #smallbusiness #malamakauai #hawaii #foodislife #holinamau #perpetuatelegacy
