On Vegan Parenting

Hi guys,

Just wanted to eagerly stop by to point you in the direction of an exciting new venture of mine with the Vegan Lifestyle Association. ¬†I’m going to be blogging over on their VEGAN24¬†News site as part of their Vegan Baby Diaries about raising vegan kids.

I’m not an expert, and I defo won’t be claiming to be. ¬†My aim is simply to share my experiences of healthfully and confidently raising Theo and Anwen as weegans (for the most part). ¬†You can find my first post here.

This also marks a change in direction for my blog. Over the next 6 months or so I hope to make this blog into more of a resource for vegan families (obvs food will be a feature).  There will not be a regular posting schedule (I know, shock).  Instead I will just blog about helpful and interesting things about vegan family living, fave foods, recipes, etc, as and when.  So my posts and blogging will (hopefully) be more about quality than quantity.

Exciting!  Hope you will join me for the ride.

Week #43

Good morning!

I’m a bit late blogging about last week. ¬†It’s amazing how having two adult cats can up the crazy factor in a house.

Tabby’s taking a while to settle in and is still very anxious; but she snuggles in the evening when the kids have gone to bed.

smudge already thinks she owns the house, ha.

Tuesday was our twice monthly crafts meet up.  Sadly they had no vegan cake, so I settled for a bag of crisps for my junk food fix (which barely fulfilled my need).  Check out the amazing crotchet blanket in the background.  Love those colours.

Baby A is finally getting there with food! ¬†Here’s one of my easy and quick go to vegan selections – reduced salt and sugar baked beans, grapes, crumpets with vitalite, and cucumber.

So, because I’m a little neurotic and want to ¬†make sure my wegans’s¬†diets contain everything they need, I bought this little poster from the Vegan Society; which now has a happy home on our kitchen wall. ¬†Too cool. ¬†What can I say, I’m a nutrition (?) geek.

Not a week goes by where we don’t have chilli of some sort. ¬†This one is Isa’s from Appetite for Reduction. ¬†Love it.

Finally, my new bed time reading! ¬†I may blog more on this soon as it’s so good. ¬†I’ve just been slowly reading and digesting it, bookmarking pages of juices and smoothies I wish to try, taking notes of how I can super charge my diet.

That’s it for week 43. Hope you guys are having a good week so far! xoxo
