One of the downfalls or struggles of being vegan is giving up dairy, including ice cream, milk, and cheese.

Serve with crackers to complement the Brazil nuts and other ingredients, and watch as people go for seconds.
One ingredient: Brazil nuts. Two kitchen utensils: a baking sheet to toast the nuts and a food processor to grind them into a creamy spread to use as you would any other nut butter. Grab a spoonful by itself for a morning energy boost, or smear it on a slice of toast.
