Healthy Op­tions

Where Maui - - CONTENTS - BY KRIS­TEN NE­MOTO

In­stead of a carbo-loaded plate lunch, try a ve­gan soup or en­tree at Choice Health Bar or naan from In­dia Ex­press.

It’s not al­ways a roast­ing pig feast on Maui. Sure, there may be a fancy lū‘au here and there or a plate lunch stop ev­ery­where, but lo­cal res­i­dents also like to keep their op­tions open when it comes to the health­ier side of din­ing. Why else would the United Health Foun­da­tion’s 2014 Health Rank­ings re­port con­clude that Hawai‘i tops the list as one of the health­i­est states in Amer­ica? A loco moco meal ev­ery day may not have been the rea­son. Here are our top picks for best veg­e­tar­ian and healthy eater­ies that the most beef-lov­ing meat eaters would swoon over.
