Ireland's most iconic vegan duo, The Happy Pear, are the latest to feature on Plant Based News' podcast.

The plant-based entrepreneurs, content creators, and cookbook authors sat down with PBN's Co-Founder, Robbie Lockie, to discuss their male-centric childhood, their spiritual journey, and why they're no longer a 'righteous vegan'.

'Baby steps'

"We're all a species on this planet, we're all imperfect humans trying to do our best and I think it doesn't have to be an all or nothing thing," the brothers state.

"It's about baby steps and to try and be, in my perspective, less judgemental."

'Compassion must start with ourselves'

The identical twins, who believe 'everyone is more than what they eat' also discussed the essence of veganism and the concept of being a 'perfect' vegan.

"The very nature of veganism is compassion and that compassion must start with ourselves and the kindness and the gentleness and the acceptance, and being honest with yourself with where you are with it."

Vegan cooking course

The duo has also launched their own cooking course for people wanting to 'discover how to cook delicious, healthy vegan meals, so you can live a healthier, happier life.
