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 »
I wanted to write a really quick blog post just to say how Síofra is doing, mostly as an excuse to show off some photos of her, but also to show how healthy the babies of vegan parents can be! She’s now 11 weeks old and it’s so hard to believe how quickly she’s growing up. I’m really busy every day looking after the three kids, so I guess it’s not surprising that time seems to be passing quickly. She doesn’t really seem like a newborn anymore.Read More »
I went to the first Cork Vegfest yesterday and had such a wonderful day. I ate as much food as I could, brought more food home for the boys, and went to some great talks! I also met so many lovely people. I had Síofra with me in a sling and she was amazing all day, loved meeting new people and wasn’t bothered by the noise or people around her.Read More »
This is just a quick blog post to talk about all the chocolate we’re eating today! If anyone is new to being vegan and wondering if there are vegan Easter eggs available, there’s a great selection of vegan Easter eggs widely available nowadays. Vegan kids (and grown ups) definitely don’t miss out! I couldn’t even get photos of the eggs before the kids started eating them, but did get some photos of Oran’s chocolatey face.Read More »
I’m a bit late writing this blog post (Rian’s birthday was at the end of January!) but I wanted to share what we did (and what we ate) for Rian’s 4th birthday. (I love birthday party blog posts almost as much as I love throwing vegan birthday parties!)Read More »
