Living in Dublin: How a Plant-Based Diet Changed my Life as a Mom

Let me ask you some questions.

  • Have you ever felt you were seriously inadequate?

  • Have you ever stared a brick wall you thought you could not break through?

  • Have you ever felt that despite how much love you gave, you never really got back your fair share?

Well, I have. And this is why I would love to share my story with you.

My name is Lilian. I live in Dublin, and mother to a cute brooding boy. I had always been a food and meat-lover since I was a kid. But it was in my university years that I peaked. The long hours of both part-time work and full-time study took a stressful toll on my health. The relentless demands of the city life weighed on me. 

I had little time to socialise with my best friends. So I turned to what I loved best most times. Food. 

I loved it! To me food was more than just pie, or a hamburger or a buttered steak. It was an obsession. An obsession I always looked forward to when I was alone. And I won’t shy away from admitting that I loved every bit of grease. The greasier it was, the more I wanted it. I would often try to hold back when I was with my friends or in public. But when I was alone at home, the only thing I would look forward to was dig in with absolute freedom and no interruptions. As a result I became significantly overweight and did not treat my body right. I also had incredible high levels of cholesterol.


But then, everything changed when my son arrived. 


When I looked at my son for the first time, I knew right then and there that I would give him everything. My love and my life as well. But to do that, I had to truly learn to love myself and treat my body right first. For how can you really give love if you do not truly love your own self? 

I would only contradict myself every step of the way. I needed to live long enough to make this happen.

With the weight I had gotten, and increased risk of heart disease, I convinced myself I couldn’t do it. But then I gathered the courage to ask for help from my friends. One of them also a single mom. And she introduced me to Veganism, and the many health benefits of switching to a plant-based diet and exercise.  

Not only was this new experience great for my mood, but I also really felt like I was doing my little part for the environment and animal welfare. My risks for chronic diseases has greatly reduced and renewed energy which I focus on giving my son the best love and care. I lost weight, but gained tone as well.

But I would admit that this was not easy. I had to depend on a lot of support and a trusted recommendation form my Vegan friend. This recommendation was The Green Protein.


So What is The Green Protein?

The Green Protein is a new and trusted Dublin-based producer of Vegan and plant-based protein supplements and recipes. Their products are clean, effective and affordable. Sourcing all their materials from Ireland also meant to me that they could keep products CHEAP, environmentally friendly and affordable.

And Now we get to the Good Part. 

How did their Products BENEFIT me?


First and most importantly  – AFFORDABILITY!

With an impressive product range of both Vegan and Plant-Based products starting at just €12.99, The Green Protein allows you to spend €2.60/100g in a market where the average protein supplement costs €3/100g. 


That is a saving of 13cents for every €1.

Talk about value for your money!


Secondly. Most of their plant based products are made from Irish Flax Seeds which is a great energy source for vegetarians and vegans due to its complete amino acid profile. Flax protein is often referred to as the ‘complete protein source’. 

This is not only because it contains all 20 amino acids, but also due to the fact that it’s naturally high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, not to mention that it’s high in fibre.


And that’s not all!

All orders placed online before 3pm are eligible for Next Day delivery in Ireland and the UK. So not only do they SAVE you money, they SAVE you valuable time as well.
