Another bean they are using today is black-eyed peas. Black-eyed peas are a traditional American staple in soul food. Wrap up the beans with some fruits, veggies, and add a little veganaise or barbecue sauce for flavor. There you go an amazing healthy wrap for kids to eat at school.

Another amazing addition to these wraps and several other dishes is cashew cream. According to Barbara a handful of cashews is said to improve a person’s mood. Maybe try handing a person who’s upset with you some cashews. It might work, or at least distract them for a moment! The recipe for the cashew cream is super easy to make with simple ingredients. Add cashews, filtered water, a squeeze of lemon, and maple syrup into a blender. Blend it all together and you have a creamy sauce to put on virtually any food you desire.
