Happy & Healthy is a family-owned business. It was established way back in 2002, at a time when the world was really beginning to wake up and celebrate the benefits of natural wholefoods. Right from the start, we have been passionate about making honest, healthy wholefoods affordable. In doing so, we hope that more people can enjoy real food and the benefits of cooking from scratch.
A Little Bit About My Journey
Hi, I’m Sheree owner of Happy & Healthy. 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 proudly believe that we all have a role to play in leaving the world better than how we found it… “We Do Not Inherit the Earth from Our Ancestors; We Borrow It from Our Children”.
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.
