Hi everyone, and welcome to my new healthy recipe blog. I’m Stacey, a lover of food, fitness, holidays, snapchat filters and trying to maintain a social life. I have a passion for creating delicious and healthy recipes and I’m the ultimate feeder. I’ve been creating healthy recipes now for about 2 years, all my recipes are pescatarian and mostly vegetarian too and all photos are taken by me.

Stacey Hogan - Happy & Healthy

Here’s a bit of background into how Happy & Healthy began:

When you feel that you’ve reached the end and life seems to be drained of all purpose, what a wonderful opportunity to turn over a new page and start all over again. That’s exactly what I did, I felt low, I had no confidence, the brand I’d worked so hard to build for over a year had been taken away from me, which devastated me. I’d found a job that combined two of my passions (social media marketing and health and nutrition) and it was gone, but unbeknown to me at the time, it was the best thing that could have happened to me.

I’ve always believed in the power of positivity, but sometimes, life happens and you lose your way. Everything that has ever happened to me in my life (good and bad) has made me who I am, for that I’m forever grateful. I don’t see any time spend on anything as wasted time, I see it as growing time.

I found that the only way to get through the hardest of times in life is to learn to love yourself enough to start a new chapter and to stop dwelling on past problems, mistakes and issues. Do what makes you happy.

Why am I doing this?

Because throughout some negative times in my life last year, I discovered a passion for something. Because when a relationship broke down, I discovered that the only thing I truly missed was having my own blog, creating my own recipes, learning more about nutrition and the online community of like-minded people who shared similar interests as me. I’m doing this because I want to inspire and educate people on a healthy way of living and a happy state of existence, I want to show people that being healthy doesn’t have to be boring and I want to show that being pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan is not just about quorn and tofu.

This isn’t my job anymore, it’s a hobby and if people like my recipes and enjoy reading my posts that makes me really happy.

So if you want to join me on the happy and healthy journey please try my recipes, sign up to my emails, connect with me on social media and email me, I’d love to hear from you.

If you want to be the first in the know about all of my recipes, I post them first in my private Facebook Group, which if you’d like to join, you can do so here: Happy & Healthy.
