For the last week I have been on vacation in beautiful Kauai and Oahu, Hawaii. What an amazing place! I felt fabulous the first half of the trip since we did almost all of our own cooking at the house we stayed at in Kauai. I was able to control everything I consumed and avoid soy containing products. I even cooked up a delicious batch of protein granola bars before I left on the trip and ate them between meals (recipe to come later). I was doing good until the second half of our trip in Oahu where we dined out almost every meal. I wasn't able to monitor the soy I was consuming, as it is hidden in almost everything and I chose to ignore my lactose intolerance and go crazy on dairy products. All of the food I ate was amazing, but afterwards I found myself feeling ill every night with a very severe case of soy belly. I knew I was going to suffer for eating all of those yummy foods, but I had to indulge a little on my Hawaii vacation!

Here is a generic list of some of the products I found while on my trip that contained the sneaky soy Hawaii List:
