Why Coconuts?
Coconuts symbolize my love for the sunny Hawaiian islands.  Though I grew up in California, my favorite childhood memories come from my grandpa's Manoa Valley home and his backyard jungle.  In particular, Coconut Crumbs is dedicated to my grandmother who worked as a dietitian in Honolulu.  Though I only knew her briefly, the stories of her nutrition work inspired me to pursue a career in nutrition.

Hi there, I just found your blog. I'm so glad to find another coconut lover :)

Like you, coconut is more than just food to me. It reminds me of all of my tropical vacations including Hawaii. When I smell coconut, it takes me to another place :)
