It takes a lot to get a spot on our menu. That’s why every new wrap, bowl, pot and smoothie you’ll meet at Kauai this Summer was picked, planned and perfected from the ground up to be nutritious, delicious, and as healthy for the planet as it is for you.
We lost sleep and drank lots of coffee rejecting recipes, then lost more sleep (was it the coffee?) and drank even more coffee (it’s organic!) until we found new ways to keep all the ingredients seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced.
All wrapped up: Cajun free-range chicken, roasted sweet potato, red cabbage, rosa tomatoes, carrot, red pepper, baby spinach, rocket, spring onion, creamy herb dressing
Ever Put A Mardi Gras In Your Mouth? We’re bringing a fiesta of flavours all the way from the melting pot of New Orleans. At the heart of the city’s Cajun cuisine, you’ll find roughly diced bell pepper, onion, and celery. Known by the locals as the “Holy Trinity” of the culinary culture, these abundant veggies are prepared using salt blended into a mix of spices – usually garlic and cayenne pepper – but as any Louisiana local will tell you, the secret’s in the seasoning.
Bowled or wrapped, our new Cajun spiced free-range chicken adds a tasty touch a Southern heat to a mix of crisp veggies, roasted sweet potato and a splash of creamy herb dressing.
Sun Salutation with Spice: Say hi this Summer with “Laissez les bon temp rouler!” (“lay-ZEH leh BAWN taw ROO-leh!”) – it’s Cajun for “Let the good times roll!”
What’s inside: Mango, strawberries, Dragon Fruit, orange juice, pressed apple juice, coconut Chia pudding
Dynamite comes in small packages – just ask the Chia seed. Calorie for calorie, this tiny wonder is one of nature’s best sources of nutrients. Besides zinc, vitamin B3 (niacin), potassium, vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin B2, just 28 grams of it is packed with:
Just when you thought a food couldn’t get more super, chia seeds are also a non-GMO whole-grain, free of gluten, rich in antioxidants and usually grown organically. Not bad for something that could get stuck in your teeth.
Thought for Food: Chia is the ancient Mayan word for “Strength”
Not all bread is created equal: Every Schoon loaf is hand-shaped & baked the traditional way
After years of bad press, bread is baking a comeback. According to their website, “Manufactory (derived from ‘manual factory’) is a term coined by the great Parisian baker, Lionel Poilâne, when he expanded his small, woodfired oven bakery into a larger artisan production space. The SCHOON Manufactory at The Bird Precinct in Stellenbosch includes a small café, experimental kitchen, bakery and patisserie.”
That’s where the team brainstorms and creates, and where they’re re-inspiring the sourdough loaf. An ancient form of grain fermentation, this forgotten favourite is recently on the rise. SCHOON makes it so well, it’s made its way onto our menu. Sustainably farmed, stone-milled and made the traditional way using locally sourced grains and wheat, there’s love baked into every hand-shaped loaf.
Taste the upper crust of craftsmanship with a SCHOON sourdough sandwich or try crunchy croutons on a salad – it’s the bread we can’t stop coming back for.
Bread Winner: SCHOON opens a brand new location this October, so pencil it in because their croissants are life-changing.
Low carb, high health: One pot’s the perfect portion
We could actually go on forever about the benefits, but aren’t those four enough? Packed with freshness, the low carb pot portion is small but satisfying, so if you’re counting calories, you and this salad were made for each other.
Going Green: We’re eating 900% more broccoli than we did in 1999.
Leonardo and the Leaves: da Vinci was the first artist to depict salad in his paintings.
