Welcome to the D.A.D Blog

Hi I'm Shane and I am the proud D.A.D (Dairy Allergy Dad) to Sally, my wonderful daughter and to my fluffy poodle son, Carlsson 👨‍👧🐩 I am married to my wife Donna and we live in County Donegal, Ireland 🇮🇪 I am a registered Mental Health Nurse although at the moment, my main role is as a Stay at Home Dad.

Sally has a Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) and is also allergic to eggs. I always had an interest in cooking (and eating!) but when Sally was diagnosed, I stepped it up a gear and researched the benefits of Vegan nutrition 🌱 Finally, I am a health and fitness enthusiast but I don’t get much time to practice these areas of my life these days. Sometimes running after a toddler is exercise enough! 😅

I am hoping to create a weekly blog about my life, covering a variety of different areas. I hope you find them interesting and maybe even inspirational🤞👍
