Hawaii-Sourced Handmade Lunch in Kona

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

As a general rule for a person like me, I do not wholeheartedly endorse gluten-free foods because it annoys me. Sure, some people are most likely gluten intolerant but there are a whole bunch of people who just grab on to that thought to be cool, I dunno. And vendors put gluten-free on their packaging because it makes people buy the product, not because there was any gluten in it to start with. Of course bike tires are gluten free. So is lard.

In addition to that, vegans and vegetarians can be a bit much, too. Picky, picky, picky, is all I've got to say, LOL. Reminds me of a girlfriend who back in the 1970s screamed at me because I grilled a steak in our oven broiler. Said she could not stand the odor of cooked meat and it was disgraceful. Floored me because she grew up eating meat. And you know what? Now that this girlfriend is 66, she eats meat. Has no recollection of that conversation.

However, all of this is not to say that meals geared toward vegans or vegetarians or even those who believe down to the soles of their animal hide-free feet that they can't consume gluten, that meals centered on those ideals are not nutrious or delicious. Because they are. Ya just gotta get over the weirdness of foods you don't recognize or can't pronounce. I had to tell my neighbor yesterday how to pronounce quinoa.

Homemade lunch in Hawaii sounds wonderful to me every day of the year! :) I wish I were there to support it. Haha! I love where I am now, though. :)

As you know, I love to cook.  Now add to that equation that in my family I have two vegetarians, one that is gluten intolerant, and one that is allergic to tree nuts, and you can see why I want to pull out my hair sometimes while cooking Thanksgiving dinner.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, this is a place I would truly enjoy, if I was in the area, would be a regular. I'm not supposed to eat gluten, it's not easy for me at all as I enjoy goods that contain gluten so I give myself permission to consume it, just not all the time.

Elizabeth, we are not vegetarians, nor vegans, but red meat  and pork has not  been on our menu for over 15 years.... or when ever Babe the movie came out, now with that said anyone visiting or coming over for dinner has to answer 20 questions to make sure I cook something they like and are not socially or alergy or dislike wise that they do not like... on a side note is this where Kona Coffee comes from?:)Endre

I like the idea of food being locally sourced, Elizabeth, but have lost all patience with people who glam on to the "latest thing" in food, such as gluten-free. I knew someone who was truly gluten intolerant and it took ages for them to figure out what her problem was while she mightily suffered. All these people who claim gluten intolerance all of a sudden don't have a clue.

Elizabeth, I have a friend that has to go gluten-free, and have buyers right now that are vegans.  They wanted to stop for food, and was interesting to hear where they could eat.

Endre Barath, Jr. I don't eat a lot of red meat, either. And if I really thought about where our meat comes from, I wouldn't eat it at all.

But yes, Kona is where Kona coffee originates! We have the perfect elevation going south of me to grow coffee.

Nina Hollander I think with the gluten-free phase that people think if it needs to be "free" there is something wrong with it so they should avoid it all costs.

Sheila Anderson I wish I could eat whatever I like. Well, I guess I could, nobody is stopping me, but I prefer to not grow into the shape of a cow. Which is what would happen if I ate burgers for lunch every day! YUM.

Joan Cox With vegeterian friends, I don't think you can ever go wrong with Indian food. Is that where they went?

I don't eat gluten, or gluten-free products these days. I've decided grains don't process well for my body, period.  Doubt it has a thing to do with the gluten. I am feeling so much better now - used to get a bunch of stomach aches and discomfort. I do hear you though about the latest food fad trends. It gets tedious.
