    Perfect written. We could not agree more🙏🏼❤️
    We have been plantbased for 4-5 years and are now expecting our first plantmade baby 👶🏼🌴(week 38 now)

    When you first start reading about it, you somehow loose the tunnel vision and you start to see the world with new eyes.
    That’s a fact. Everybody feels that.

    With that said, we are also talking about home schooling or the move to Bali as we really adore “The green school” there. If you havent been, go!! And visit the school, at least just for some inspo.

    All the best to all of you.
    Happy that I stumbled over your post on facebook.

    ✌🏼🌴💫

    Hej, hvordan har i skiftet til vegansk for børnene? Både rent praktisk i fht at kunne lide maden og også om det er deres valg fx hvis de bliver tilbudt ikke-vegansk mad?

    Vi har selv 3 børn på 4,6,8 og er ca 80 % veganske, men synes skiftet er svært med børn i fht om de får nok varieret kost da det kniber lidt med at få grøntsager indenbords. Og synes også det er en udfordring i fht pålæg på madpakken (er ikke tilhænger af forarbejdet veganske produkter såsom pålæg), da vores børn er i børnehave og skole.

    Spændende at følge med i jeres eventyr. Vi har selv fået mulighed for at rejse i januar og februar 2018, og turen går til Thailand. Vi vil bruge den ene måned på koh kut og koh chang, så hvis i har nogle gode anbefalinger, modtages det gerne.

    Mvh Stine

      Hej Stine 🙂
      Vi er nok blevet lidt mere afslappede omkring det efter vi er draget ud i verden. Vi er kommet lidt væk fra de ting de kendte fra vores tid som førveganere, og de spiser mere og mere frugt og grønt for hver dag der går. Isabella ser sig selv som 100% veganer, hvor Sophia stadig siger ja tak til fx chokolade og vingummi når det bliver tilbudt ved kassen i suppermarkedet osv. Men ellers er de blevet meget bedre til at smage på ting og lukke nye ting ind på deres “acceptabel mad liste” :-).
      Vi har en regel om at man skal smage på den mad der bliver tilbudt, da der er lagt kærlighed i tilberedelsen. Alternativt har vi altid brugt havegryn/havregrød, så de ikke gik sultne i seng, baseret på en ide om at så længe det vi spiser er mere spændende end alternativet, så vil de før eller siden foretrække det vi spiser :-).

      ..og så har det nok også hjulpet lidt på vores bekymringer, at se hvordan mange børn ude i verden ser ud til at leve fint på ofte meget ensartet kost, så barnekroppen ser ud til at kunne klare mere end vi lige går og tror :-).

      Vi er nok i Syd Thailand i februar, så det kan jo være vi kan mødes? Vi har været på Koh Chang og kan varmt anbefale https://www.facebook.com/indiebeachbungalows/ 🙂

    I think the reason of being vegan is noble. I’m not a vegan but I can understand why you and your family choose to be vegans. Actually what make me interested in is why you change your way of life because of your daughter Isabella. It’s obvious that your daughters are very important to you.

    I felt the same way.. because of my little girl Mili who doesn’t like to go to school.. we change our way of thinking about life and education. I want Mili to learn everything that she like and learn happily without being forced or pushed. Like Isabella.. Mili is very shy and so sensitive.
    The 3 of us (me, my husband & Mili) agree that homeschooling is the right thing for our family. We believe it can make Mili feel comfortable learning everything anytime and anywhere she likes.
    Homeschooling is also legal in Indonesia and it’s pretty popular nowdays because many family find that school isn’t good enough for their children. There so many academical subjects that kids must learn but less moral & manner lesson that they get.

    Maybe you can meet with Indonesian homeschooler community when you visit Indonesia next year. In Indonesia we’re making groups by area so we can meet up and gather more often.

    Say Hello to Isabella from Mili. Can’t wait for your next updates 🙂

      Hi Melissa 🙂
      I am happy that you decided to homeschool Mili.. I am sure she is too :-). As long as a kid is stressed and worried about the environment that she is in.. she will not be able to learn anything. So creating a relaxed environment where Mili feels safe, is the only way to help her grow into a complete person :-).
      It would be great to meet when we come to Indonesia 🙂
      Where in Indonesia do you live?

        Hi.. sorry I’ve been very busy. We live in Tangerang Selatan, it’s near to South Jakarta. It would be great too if my family can meet yours, and perhaps I can ask few of my homeschoolers family to join 🙂

    Such a great story!! We are vegan from Bermuda. I love to keep learning, and we have similar reasons to be vegan: for health, for the animals, for the planet. Travel wise. Big love. x (@bohobermuda)

    A wonderful post – the planet needs more people like you and your family. I’ve been vegan for 23 years and have never regretted my decision ~ the animals are who I do it for and the protection of the planet. Life has much more clarity for me and I think I see the world from a place of sensitivity and compassion. We are blessed with this beautiful earth and so it is our honour to be looking after it 🌏

      Hi Claudine
      23 years! That is impressive! Being vegan today is much easier than 23 years ago I imagine?
      And yes, when you start to embrace life and appreciating your own life, it is hard to accept that animals should be treated as if their lives meant less than humans, just because they don’t speak our language or care as much about money and power as humans do?
      You are an inspiration for us all!

    Tak for dette fine indlæg! Jeg følger jeres blog og Instagram og finder jer meget inspirerende.
    Min kæreste og jeg planlægger en længere rejse i 2019 med vores to børn og findes jeres tanker omkring at rejse med børn kontra skole osv. meget interessant og inspirerende. I er utrolig modige og det er så skønt at blive bekræftet i alle de tanker min kæreste og jeg har som bevæger sig uden for normen, men som jo bare handler om at følge sit hjerte og sin intuition.
    Tak for god læsning:)
    Mvh. T

      Hej T 🙂
      Tak for din dejlige kommentar 🙂
      Der er mange der skriver at vi er modige? Det har vi aldrig rigtig tænkt over. Vi har bare en ide om at man kun bliver lykkelig hvis man lytter til sit hjerte og gør det man har lyst til. Vi har aldrig tænkt at det skulle være sværere at have børn “on the road” end i en travl hverdag hjemme, hvor man jonglerer med institutioner, arbejde, fritidsaktiviteter osv. Vores liv er ikke så meget anderledes end det liv vi levede hjemme i Danmark. Vi prioriterer stadig tid med hinanden højest, og retter alt andet ind efter det. Der findes mad i hele verden, senge i hele verden og folk er søde, dejlige, frække, ondskabsfulde, sociale, asociale og og og.. ligegyldigt hvor man kommer hen. Så ligesom vi altid har gjort, følger vi vores intuition og sunde fornuft når vi omgås andre mennesker og tager beslutninger. Når noget føles forkert lader vi det ligge og drager videre.

      Fedt at læse at I også vil ud og se verden med jeres to børn! Håber at vi ses derude! Verden er faktisk lille når man først er herude ;-).
