What I Ate as a Vegan in Hawaii

In the land of papayas, apple bananas and pineapples, it’s a fruit lover’s paradise. There are so many options when eating vegan in Hawaii and I was lucky enough to eat my way around the Big Island for the past two weeks.

Even beyond fruit, you’re sure to find some of your favorite dishes and discover new ones. I snapped some shots of a few tasty meals to hopefully inspire you to whip up something new in the kitchen.

I know I’m fired up to try making some of these. That chia pudding is the first on my list! I had always been a little wary of it because of the texture but oh-my-gosh that stuff is amazing.


Exploring new recipes will help you discover delicious ingredients you may have been intimidated by in the past.

To help me and other readers find tasty new dishes, share your favorite recipe (or a link to it) in the comments below and let us know what makes it special to you. 

If you’re curious about anything you see below, put your question in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer!

We scored at the Hilo Farmers Market – Papayas, Avocados, Rambutans, Longans, and Apple Bananas!

Special mention for some of our favorite food joints around the Big Island:

Killer Tacos (not pictured – we scarfed down our burritos too fast)
Laulima Food Patch
Under the Bodhi Tree
What’s Shakin’
