A BIT ABOUT MY JOURNEY SO FAR….
Hi I’m Sheree, owner of Happy & Healthy (est. 2002). I live with my husband and three young children on the sunny Kapiti Coast. Becoming a Mum was what first sent me down the wholefood path, followed by a health scare several years later, that cemented my lifestyle choice.
Prior to this, I was your typical ‘grab something as you run out the door’ career girl. So long as it was quick and tasty, very little regard was given to how and from what, it was produced. Food was almost a necessary inconvenience. Cue the arrival of my firstborn seven years ago and a developing interest in exploring new, healthy ways to nourish her growing body.
And so it began, my interest soon became a passion. Food is now an important part of our family life, from the selection and variety of the ingredients we cook with, to how it is prepared, right through to the effects on our health and vitality. I try my best to cook from scratch and be kind to mine and my family’s bodies in the process.
As I continued to learn, wholefoods and organics became the start of something bigger. Through this journey my eyes have been opened to the toxins we expose ourselves to in everyday life and the importance of sustainability - I am aware of my waste, recycling and impact on the planet in general.
Along the way, I have picked up many quick and easy tips that I am looking forward to sharing with you (and hopefully you will share yours with me), as we make this journey together.
Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Day!
