When you visit Hawaii, you want to fill your day with activities to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and inviting ocean. When you set out on adventures like hiking, swimming, surfing, and exploring, it’s important to go with a full stomach. Otherwise, you may find yourself getting tired easily and not performing your best. Here are a few perfect breakfasts to prepare you for your activities.
What to Eat for Breakfast in a Hawaiian Restaurant
1. Eggs & Rice
When you’re going for a swim, it’s important to fill up on carbs you can use for bursts of fast energy. Rice is packed with energy, and eggs add flavor to this simple dish, as well as fat and protein for longer-lasting energy and fullness.
2. Loco Moco
If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, try this popular Hawaiian favorite. The loco moco is white rice topped with a hamburger patty, an egg, and brown gravy—so it has all the advantages of eggs and rice, plus more flavor, more protein, and more iron.
This is a similar high-protein option, but you can adjust its nutritional balance with different fillings. Want to get all your vitamins and minerals? Fill your omelet with veggies and mushrooms. If you’re short on carbs, try your omelet with rice.
4. Croissant Sandwich
For a familiar taste, try a breakfast sandwich. A fresh bakery croissant packed with ham, bacon, or cheese still offers a mix of protein and carbs that will help you run or surf your best.
5. Bacon & Eggs
If your activity of choice is hiking, you need lasting reserves instead of a quick burst of energy. Lace your carbs with protein, and choose a bacon and egg breakfast—or, for a little variety, switch out the bacon for another meat, like ham, sausage, a beef patty, or a Hawaiian favorite like spam.
