Here is a description of the book:

“To us food is the spice of life!
We believe that the life of a vegetarian can be as interesting and as enjoyable as you want to make it. We firmly believe that you must enjoy what you eat and you should not eat just for the sake of eating. Eating should be enjoyable and the art of preparing food should be equally as enjoyable as well. The truth is that as a vegetarian there are so many things you can eat and they are so many different foods which you can incorporate into your diet.
This book has been compiled with exactly this in mind and for all the vegetarians the world over so that they can have meals they can enjoy but also meals that can be quite nourishing. It is our sincere hope that you will be able to find recipes in our book which you can try and share with others.”

Celebrating Nature: Recyling

Hi all,

It is indeed a blessed occasion when I have the opportunity to share a post with you! This post is dedicated to Celebrating Nature and Recycling (mainly Trini Style) but it’s all about embracing nature, respecting it and protecting it!

We can all agree that protecting our environment and respecting it will help us to minimize the impact of climate change being faced throughout the world. Together, let’s do it!

Here are some sites worth checking out:

Did you know that you can help recycling plastics, glass, paper, tetra packs and lots of other things right here in Trinidad and Tobago? Just imagine if we all do our part or we all do a little, our effort can make a difference and result in less pollution and maybe less flooding and unwanted diseases! Just imagine doing a little may mean that our effort can help save a live or lives as the case may be! Let’s all do something to help!

A simple search on Google for “recycling in Trinidad and Tobago” will produce very useful information.

The iCARE Project is a project of the Environmental Management Agency (EMA). This National Project is aimed at the Collection of Recyclable Solid Waste. At present there are a minimum of 58 iCARE Collection Bins throughout the country where plastic, glass, tetrapaks and aluminium cans can be placed for recycling. To recycle these items here is what must be done:

  • Items must be collected and rinsed.
  • They must be placed in a transparent bag.

For more information on the iCARE Project please visit

For recycling paper you can contact Ace Recycling Limited. You can visit their website at   or you can contact them at (868) 290-2970.  At Ace Recycling they provide a wide range of services which can be found at .

It provides a free cardboard and paper recycling service throughout Trinidad and Tobago and after calling to schedule collection waste paper or cardboard can be collected within 48 hours.

It is to be noted that glass can also be recycled at Carib Glassworks. For more information on this please visit

In searching through recycling here in Trinidad and Tobago I found the video that I have included below. Kudos to the students of St. Stephen’s College on this initiative!

In closing allow me to share this video from October 2017:
