I also had some dates, cranberries and coconut ready to go, so boom – these delicious almond energy bars were born. A small handful of almonds… Continue reading

Where do Vegans get their Protein?

More often then than not it’s the first thing people want to know when they find out I don’t eat animal products.

Ultimate Scrambled Ackee Breakfast
