The Beets are Back!

This is really a post aimed for N. I went to Costco in Iwilei yesterday and saw the beets back in stock! Not sure if they’re in stock at the Waipio one, but it’s for sure at the Iwilei one. They stock it in the same area as the deli meats/hummus/etc. section. I hope you find them!


150207-01Now onto random updates for this nice Saturday. I woke up with a bit of a runny nose and the feeling of a possible sore throat. I will be drinking some Airborne today.

150207-03Watermelon Juice at Shaka Shaka Tea Express. Remember when I talked about the watermelon juice at Little Sheep Hot Pot and how much I loved it? Well now I found a place that makes it better without having to sit through an expensive hot pot meal. Shaka Shaka prides themselves on making drinks from natural ingredients. This drink is great, so refreshing and tastes like I am drinking fresh watermelon. Forreal. Give them a try! They also offer it with boba, but I like this drink plain.

150207-04I went to Palama Supermarket last week and saw this in their hot foods section! I can’t resist Korean style snack food. Fried squid bar sounds weird but it tasted good! And I was happy to see they have a spicy version too. It was good! I would get it again!


Healthy Dinner = Healthy Wallet

My friend and I were cruising around for some dinner the other night and since we couldn’t head to the place we wanted, we decided to check out Down to Earth. We both love their tofu nori rolls so we decided to make a salad at the salad bar. A scoop here, a scoop there and before I knew it…I was paying $16 bucks for a container of salad. Salad. Gosh, it costs so much to eat healthy. The salad wasn’t great, I got a bunch of beets for my salad and it was the worst part! They had shredded the beets and they were so dry, it was hard to eat. Do I think the salad was good? Not at all. I saw another guy really packing his salad plate FULL – I’m scared to imagine what he paid.


140618-02I was really excited about the watercress tofu salad but it was SO bitter. I was so unhappy.

140618-03Brownie! I forgot the exact name of this but I’m sure it was healthy in some way but it tastes like it looks…delicious! Doesn’t this look so moist? It was so good. It was nice to get the taste of the salad out of my mouth…hehe

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

Those who get the title of my post, A+ for you. 🙂 I have shared my affinity for beets in the past. So guess what? Costco is selling fresh beets in their refrigerated section. They are fully cooked and peeled…ready to eat! I was so happy when I found them. I have straight-up been eating them at work as part of my lunch for the past few days. No salad, just beets. I’m insane. I know.

Anyway, hope you all are doing well. Today was Monday and it just felt like…it was dragging. I’m starting a new thing that I might regret. I don’t feel tired in the morning so I started drinking coffee right after lunch. It helps to keep me alert in the afternoon but it’s like 10 pm now and I still feel alert. This may need some tweaking but I do like that I felt alert all day today. Crazy yah. Anyway, I took some pictures of the beets!  I think a container comes with about 12-16 beets and it costs $6.29 – I think that’s a great deal! We all know what a pain it can be to prepare beets – I’ll pay for it this way anytime! Oh by the way, they have a pretty long shelf-life since each package is vacuum sealed!
