In today’s Hawaii’s Kitchen, we’re featuring Uala Leaf Café.  The Blue Zones recognized restaurant opened earlier this year at Windward Community College.  The restaurant implemented changes to its menu to make healthy choices easier for their customers.    Charlene Akina tells us more about that and shows us how to make their 100-calorie bread pudding.
