Fall is here and it is one of my favorite times

The weather has cooled down -- maybe just a little bit here -- and the holidays are just around the corner. I love making my own crafts for the holidays and putting them all around the house. You can get super creative and crafty with just a couple things.

Here are a few fun crafts you can do with your keiki:

The More I Learn About Noni, the More I Love It!

Aloha Kakou. What a beautiful summer we are having in Hawaii Nei. Even with it being a little warmer than usual this summer, there’s no place I’d rather be.

I am so excited to share my newest obsession of this summer. Now, if you live in Hawaii you’re probably well aware of this amazing fruit. But in the 12 years that I have lived in Hawaii, I have never really delved into it, until now. It’s absolutely a miracle food to me and I can’t get enough. Ok, have I piqued your interest? Well this incredible fruit is… noni!

Do we really have to choose between health and a healthy economy?

You may have noticed an article floating around the web recently with the provocative headline “Eat a Carrot, Hurt the Economy?

Prepare for Summer Sun

When I was young, I remember tracing a scar on my mom’s leg that extended a hand's length across her upper thigh, like a gouge in clay. She had skin cancer, and the scar was from a tumor she had removed in her thirties, around the time I was born. As I grew up, I remember her always checking the moles on her arms and back, worried if they were black or irregularly shaped.

The Real Culprit Behind High Cholesterol, Dismantling Dr. Atkins and Fruit Appreciation 101

High cholesterol is a rising concern in the United States. Once thought to be a condition of middle and old age, it was recently found that approximately 1 in 5 teens has cholesterol levels that raise the risk for heart disease. Dr. Campbell, in his book documenting his authoritative 27 year nutritional study dubbed the China Study, explains how the primary culprit behind high cholesterol is not what we’ve been led to believe.
