It was the year 2000 and I was on break from university and visiting a schoolmates’ home country. While there I was taken to a grocery store that sold a variety of alternative foods for my vegan appetite. In that moment I selfishly decided that I would need to open my own place back at home so that I could have access to the food I needed. As the years passed my decision and reasoning became well rooted. I soon however, realized that I would not only be doing this to feed myself but also others in our growing community. With a focused and determined will I was able to fulfill my need and at the same time present to you “ It’s About Time: Vegetarian Food Store”.

It’s About Time: Vegetarian Food Store (IAT) represents phase 1 of my vision of the one place in Grand Bahama that I can go to and shop for everything I need to prepare a nutritious vegan meal. It’s the one place where we know without a doubt that all the ingredients on the labels are 100% plant based. My main goal when shopping for the items to carry in IAT was that each item would be an item that I could incorporate in my vegan diet. Therefore I researched to be sure each and every item is natural &/or organic and completely free of animal proteins, GMO, MSG and other such harmful properties.

Why go MEAT-LESS?
Did you know – “Cholesterol comes from two sources: your body and food. Your liver and other cells in your body make about 75 percent of blood cholesterol. The other 25 percent comes from the foods you eat. Cholesterol is only found in animal products.” (www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/Cholesterol)

Just to name a few - IAT offers:

MEATLESS MEATS

· Ham, turkey, and bologna sandwich slices

· Italian, Kielbasa and Beer Brat Sausages
