Do you have any idea whether or not poi is good for you (or what the heck it is for that matter)? If so, you're not alone, as most people, even native Hawaiians, are unaware of which foods common in Hawaii are healthy and which are not.
Hawaii, just like all the other states, suffers from an obesity problem. Hawai'i Foods is the first online database centered around the nutritional information for Hawaiian favorites. So if you're lucky enough to live in Hawaii or even if you're going to be visiting anytime soon and you want to eat locally, but also healthfully, then you should definitely check out Hawai'i Foods.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, one cup of that purplish poi has a whopping 269 calories!
