Hello! I'm Dannii and I run Hungry Healthy Happy with the help of my husband Dave, who fixes all the technically issues, a few social media helpers and our two chief taste testers, Avery and Ziggy, who always give (very) honest feedback on my recipes.
I started the blog in 2011 as a place to share healthy recipes that weren’t boring or restrictive and how to sneak a few extra vegetables in to your diet. I wanted to show that healthy is all about balance, which is why you will find so much more than healthy recipes here. HHH (for short) is all about making healthy meals exciting, and enjoying all the other things too.
I didn't grow up helping out in the kitchen and you won't find hundreds of recipes passed down through my family here. I learnt to cook as a poor student and that culinary education continued as our family grew and we had two children. I taught myself to cook delicious, and healthy recipes using ingredients you could find in your supermarket, and that is what you will still find here today.
Hungry Healthy Happy shares healthy family friendly recipes, from comfort food to light salads, veggie packed to delicious treats and a mixture of quick and easy recipes to those that require a bit more attention. There is a vast selection of vegetarian and vegan recipes and something to suit all dietary restrictions.

Since 2011, Hungry Healthy Happy has turned in to a fantastic community of like minded people who see being healthy as far more than a restrictive diet and are thinking more about their mental health and what makes them happy, which is why HHH is more than just food.
With a social media following of over 150,000, HHH has been ranked the Number 1 Food Blog in the UK for 3 years in a row. HHH is the place to go for quick and easy healthy recipes that are not restrictive (you will still see cheese, butter, ice cream and all the good stuff here – everything in moderation).
In 2015, the Hungry Healthy Happy book was published and is available online and in all good bookstores. Having a book published was a dream come true and is just one of the many wonderful things that has come from blogging. It contains 100 recipes for healthier alternatives of traditional unhealthy foods.
In 2018 the second book, The Healthy Slow Cooker was published. It contains 100 healthy slow cooker recipes that the whole family will love. We wanted to show just how helpful a slow cooker can be when it comes to saving time, which is what a lot of people says holds them back from eating healthier meals.
The book also includes healthy options of some popular 'comfort' dishes, together with tips for choosing your slow cooker and how to get the most out of it.
