FOUND DOG IN DUBLIN
This little guy followed my sister and her dog home from the Navan Rd/Screen Rd area in Dublin 7. He kept running into traffic so had to put a lead on him. He’s a Jack Russel I think and has a collar but no contact info. He’s very frightened and was very hungry and thirsty so not sure if he’s a stray. If anybody recognises him please message me. Please share.
Please reblog this guys!
Anonymous asked: You said you ate Burger King Onion Rings, was just wondering if they fry them with the oil with the fish products? I stopped eating there when I read that on one of their menus on the wall
On the nutritional information part of their website, it states that the fries and onion rings are fried in the same oil as the chicken and fish products. However, I’ve asked them more than once in-store what oil they use for the fries & onion rings and they’ve always told me vegetable oil. I always see that they’re cooked completely separate from everything else.
‘Tis a tricky one, so I’ve stopped eating from there because there is no clear answer.
Sorry I’ve taken so long to reply, I only got the chance to reply to my mails now! I hope this helped. :)
Anonymous asked: I'm a cheapskate college student too! What sort of lunches do you bring in when you can't afford to eat out or buy something there?
I tend to bring food with me wherever I go because 90% of the time, a vegan option won’t be available. I always bring fruit with me because it’s a convenient filler, or carrots & hummus (my favourite!) If I’m feeling slightly inventive, I might cook something like quinoa, lentil & veg and bring it with me in a lunch box. For snacking, popcorn or a cereal bar is always a good option. I’ve read from various sources that Cuisine de France’s apple lattice squares are vegan, so that could be a nice treat too!
Quinoa, bulgar wheat, lentils, spinach, green peppers & chickpeas with vegetable stock, a tiny bit of curry powder & topped with sesame seeds. #vegan #veganstudent #vegandublin #whatveganseat
Rainbow dinner! 😊 (spinach, red & green peppers, sweetcorn, red kidney beans & butternut squash) #vegan
Sittin’ in a hammock with this. Its a good day. (Spinach, carrots, peppers & butternut squash in a szechuan sauce…I need to go shopping) #vegan
I had the absolute pleasure of visiting one of Dublin’s brand new 100% vegan cafés today. To say it was both a wonderful and delightful experience would be an understatement. It was magnificent!
Located on Mary Street (keep walking down Henry street away from the Spire), the quirky & pretty decor brings home-comfort & cosiness to a magical new level.
The staff are exceptionally friendly, polite & accommodating. Pretty much everything you could possibly ask for in a group of people running a vegan café!
This was the menu for this week:
They have a daily special for €10, which included spicy lentil & bean soup, along with a potato and broccoli burger with salad. My mother is not vegan & quite reluctant to try new food but after she tried this, she wouldn’t stop ranting about how delicious it was. That is an Irish Mammy for ya!
I had the mushroom & coriander burger on a sesame seed bap with couscous & pasta salad. I was too distracted by how amazing everything else was that I didn’t notice which two sauces hugged the burger but whatever they were, they were goooood.
I also got a slice of the mixed berry cake to go, which was so yummy that I forgot to take a picture of it. Trust me though, it was all kinds of happiness in one slice of cake.
Here’s the carrot cake which had a magical icing-type layer on top. I will probably need this in my life on a daily basis, now. So tasty.
They’re just starting out & need all the help they can get, so I recommend Dubliners & tourists alike to pay this wonderful café a visit.
The prices aren’t student-friendly, but they use fresh ingredients everyday, so you know it is quality food filled with Lurve!
It is the loveliest of lovely places to experience in Dublin. All I’m saying is, if they took over the world tomorrow…I’d be okay with that.
Yep. That’s right. I emailed their company. VEGAN!!!!! #vegan #vegansofig #veganstudent #veganfoodshare #dublinvegan
Carrots, bean sprouts, cabbage, mushrooms, red pepper, red onion, chickpeas with Nandos tomato and basil marinade and sprinkled garlic and herb croutons on top. I dunno, but it worked. 👌 #vegan #vegansofig #veganfoodshare
This is yet another non-food-related post, but I feel it’s important and I welcome all thoughts & opinions on the issue (be nice!).
It has come to my attention that ‘Original Source’ shower gel, although it has the ‘Vegan’ symbol, is part of a larger parent company which test on animals (Pz Cussons).
Now, I know it’s all down to personal opinion. Some might say it’s hypocritical to use these products and I got some mails since posting about the shower gel stating how utterly wrong it is to use that. Yes, of course I agree. I don’t particularly want to fund these companies. However, as my blog title suggests, I am a student. I try my best to avoid all animal products & by-products to my wallet’s greatest extent. If it was acceptable to wash myself with potatoes, oranges and leaves…..actually, I probably wouldn’t do that, but you catch my drift.
As much as I’d love to buy all of my products from Lush or buy my shoes online from vegetarian-shoes.co.uk, it’s just not feasible for me. Since the day I decided to go vegan and withdraw myself as much as I could from the treacherous animal industry, I was under the impression that it was all about doing one’s utmost best to prevent animal abuse.
What about the shoes you buy? Do they all state and verify that the glue used to stick the materials together isn’t made from animals? Surely the whole vegan population of the world doesn’t only buy from vegan-certified (pricey!) online stores, right? Unless there is some sort of money-making scheme for vegans that I’m unaware of and have been living off 75c vegetables from the reduced isle in Tesco when I could have been sowing my own seeds in the hundreds of acres of land I could apparently own?
If you’re vegan, you want to make a difference. I don’t slate vegetarians for drinking milk and eating eggs because they’re still helping. They care and they’re still making a difference. There is so much negativity and little tolerance among vegans for anyone and everyone who isn’t vegan. Stop. You’re vegan because you believe in equality & because you believe that you are no better than any other sentient being.
Being on the defense and ready to attack each other doesn’t help anyone. I have a lot of respect for anyone who cares enough to help animals in any way, whether it’s spending an hour a week volunteering at an animal shelter, being vegetarian/vegan or even feeding pigeons your last bit of bread. Less hate, more love. (Christ, I’m a hippy).
ORANGE WAS FOUND SAFE & SOUND!!! Two kind ladies found her and took her in for the night. BIG thank you for all of the help and support! Very emotional reunion!!! :) (Taken with Instagram)
Hi guys, apologies that this is not a vegan related post but we are desperate. My brother’s house got robbed and the burglars let their dog ‘Orange’ out. She was seen near Phibsborough in Dublin today and heading towards Crossguns bridge. If anyone lives in that area please keep all eyes peeled! Thankfully she hasn’t been stolen but we just hope she gets found :( his two kids are beyond devastated. Please reblog & share this around, it’s a more recent picture of her! Thank you. #lostdog #lostpets #dublin (Taken with Instagram)
HELLO! Sorry I haven’t been very active as of late, I’m currently in the process of skid-addling away from my parents’ house into my college house so it’s been slightly hectic.
Moving into a new house means becoming an adult, taking on more responsibilities and having to buy things such as…hand soap. Luckily, my vegan friend John informed me about this brand - Original Source. They have lots of vegan products - shower gels, hand-washes, and bath products. They had shampoos and conditioners but unfortunately, they have been discontinued…BUT! DON’T FRET! You should try out ‘Naked’ as they do many vegan shampoos and conditioners, blog post here. Original Source have been approved by The Vegan Society so there is no slipping through the cracks - these are legit!
CAUTION: This smells so good, you may want to eat it. But, don’t. If you happen to get some in your mouth in the shower well hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
I blogged about Soap&Glory before and their ‘Clean On Me’ body wash - so amazingly yummy, it oozes loveliness. Realistically however, who has €7 to spend on keeping themselves clean? This OS baby is €2.69 in Boots…keep an eye out for special offers though! Vegan John also informed me a while back it was a mere €2(?) in Dunnes (for Irish folk!) so keep one eye open for bargains and BOGOFs!
Just a mini-post to keep my blog alive while I continue to shift my life (slightly but significantly). I’ve discovered some gems in relation to eating-out vegan style in Dublin so after I pay a few more visits, I will share my thoughts!
One question for any Irish reading this - what vegan toothpaste would you all recommend? How much would you spend on toothpaste & where do you buy it?
insignificantart asked: Hi, I was just wondering what uni you are at? I'm starting at Kingston in September, and apparently there are lots of vegans there which is just lovely. I've been vegan for 3 years now but I'll be on a much tighter budget soon!
Hi! I’m in Dublin City University (DCU), I wish I went to Uni in London. It’s a great place for vegans. Veganism is not a strange concept at all there, and there are so many veg*n restaurants and stores. I wrote a post about Vx (it should be somewhere below). I didn’t see many Tescos when I was in London, so you’ll probably be living in Sainsbury’s!
3 years - that’s amazing. Well done. :)
Anonymous asked: Yes that is what i meant :-D where generally do you tend to buy your foods from?
If you like, you can message me your name/go off anonymous and I can chat with you about it? :)
I buy pretty much all of my food from Tesco, it’s the cheapest. I buy my green lentils from Holland & Barrett because I never find them in Tesco. Tesco brand (I’m such a broken record) is the cheapest so I always go for that! It usually has less crap in the ingredients too, so it’s easy to tell whether or not the food is vegan. Hope this helped! :)
