About Me

Veggie Mama is a lifestyle blog written by someone who doesn’t take herself too seriously.

Evidence suggests nobody has taken her seriously since 1984.

I’m Stacey Roberts, and I’m one of those people Ricky Gervais says are clogging up the internet “doing websites” about themselves. I post vegetarian recipes, travel tips, life with kids, and other fun stuff.

Sorry, Ricky.

VMextraBWwI am a mama, book-reader, and laundry-avoider, who can often be found stuffing my face. I have a First Class Degree in Sarcasm, and I’m working on a Ph.D in Dry Humour.

I like British comedy, American politics, and Japanese stationery. I am nostalgic for the 90s (so I created the pop culture podcast Sweet Teen Club), and I don’t sleeeeep. I’ve been vegetarian for 10 years, and it seems you can turn a committed carnivore into a lentil-loving freak with a minimum of fuss. Just don’t ask me to love tofu.

I live in Melbourne, Australia, with a husband (aka Lunchbox, my hetero lifemate) and two kids who are the cheese to my macaroni. Biggie is four, and Smalls is three. They are hilarious. And I’ve no idea what I’m doing, but I’ve realised I am a hardcore CTFD mum. My style of parenting is best described as “Half Attachment, Half Everything I Learned While Watching Roseanne”.

I love bento, cheese, and stuff that smells like vanilla. Including vanilla.

What will you find at Veggie Mama?

  • food  (vegetarian recipes, kid food ideas, lunchbox baking, unhealthy treats, and stuff with chia seeds in it).
  • stories (usually embarrassing)
  • kid stuff (activities, food, games, items, and stuff I would like but could never afford)
  • travel (With or without kids, I’ve been thrown up on in three countries now)
  • things on the internet I find amusing/useful/interesting
  • Sneaky Wayne’s World quotes and references from Kevin Smith films – see that one time I interviewed Jason Mewes in my car on the side of the road.

If you’re on Instagram, I post yum stuff I eat under the tag #veggiemamafood, my kid’s lunchbox items under #vmlunchbox, podcast stuff under #sweetteenclub, and a fun community tag for those of us who love weekend eating under #vmsundaylunch. You should post your sunday lunch shots too!

If you like laughing and eating, I share stuff to help you do both pretty regularly over on Facebook, and pin delicious treats every day on Pinterest. I also do Twitter, if you like, and that’s where you’ll find all my blogging/ProBlogger related stuff.

Welcome aboard! If you have any questions (or funny memes, those email days were the best), you can catch me at stacey@theveggiemama.com.

If you’re into fun news, subscriber giveaways, and fortnightly meal plans so you don’t have to think – then grab the newsletter. You can sign up below.
