I haven’t blogged in ages so wanted to share a post about our Christmas as a vegan family. Being vegan doesn’t stop us being able to celebrate with family and friends or stop us eating nice Christmassy food!
What do vegan kids do for Halloween? That’s something that a few people have asked me. People have this idea that vegan kids will “miss out” on so many things, but I’ve found that they can have just as much fun as other kids do! This is what we did for Halloween this year, and some ideas for the future. (And some cute photos of Síofra!)
Síofra is 6 months old already! With three kids to look after, it has flown by. She has fitted into our lives perfectly and now it feels like she’s always been here. She has always been a big baby, and still is very big and healthy! She’s such a happy little girl, and is really a joy to be with and take care of. Life is busy right now, but very happy.Read More »
It was such a lovely sunny day yesterday that we decided to have a picnic in the park. Me and the kids spent all morning baking some yummy and healthy vegan treats. They really love baking! It’s usually messy and slightly stressful for me, but also fun. We made blueberry muffins from Keep It Vegan by Áine Carlin, pumpkin seed breakfast bars from Plant Powered Families by Dreena Burton and also these cashew butter and blueberry cookies. The boys loved them!
We had Oran’s 2nd birthday party yesterday. It was just a very small party with his family and a couple of friends. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and not put too much pressure on myself preparing for it. And for once I actually made the right amount of food and cake instead of making way too much!Read More »
When Oran was a baby I was very happy to be able to donate breast milk to the Human Milk Bank here in Ireland, which was a really rewarding experience. The milk bank issues breast milk to hospitals throughout Ireland to be used for premature or sick babies. The milk can help to save the lives of some of the most vulnerable babies.Read More »
