Fruit Forever!

This post is solely devoted to the gluttony of the scrumptious, never ending fruit of the Big Island of Hawaii.  The bounty is unreal in a true, living paradise.  I ate and ate and ate on papaya, coconut, cocao, soursop, jackfruit, mango, lilikoi, guava, pineapple, avocado, banana, rambutan, lychee, the amazing noni……..the list goes ON AND ON!  I am one happy, healthy vegan, and I owe it’s roots to living here.

All of my thanks and honor to Pele, the Lava Goddess of the Island, for continuing to bless this place with beauty and amazing energy!
