Today is an exciting day here at Ceara’s Kitchen!
I started this blog over a year ago as a way to share some of my favorite feel-good eats reinvented into healthy *but equally as good ways*. As many of you know, I also started this blog to help me heal from my past of disordered eating – as a positive celebration of food and all the joy it can bring to life. And there will still be lots of comforting eats to be had and shared over here at Ceara’s Kitchen but after some thought and reflection I’ve changed the mantra of this website from “Feel good, healthy eats” to “Eat Happy, Live Happy”.
What is “Eat Happy, Live Happy?”
It’s living a happy life where food is enjoyed, celebrated and shared.
It’s living in world where food is seen in a positive light.
It’s living in a world where eating as little or as much as possible is not seen as some achievable goal.
And eating a substantial breakfast is a must 😉
It’s living in a world where some of my closest friends growing up would not have had eating disorders.
It’s living a life where food is enjoyed free of guilt.
And you get to make your favorite creamy pasta and eat it too.
It’s living in a world where having a piece of chocolate is savored.
And living a life filled with nutritious eats that are dayuuum tasty.
It’s living in a world where food is seen as fuel, nourishment, love and comfort.
It’s about eating your veggies and greens.
But also enjoying that piece of cake once in a while too.
It’s eating happy.
It’s living happy.
CREAMY PASTA = YES! EAT HAPPY, LIVE HAPPY = DOUBLE YES! Loving your new slogan, you and your blog describes it perfectly well!
Lovely post and all that food?! Yum!!

Very nice slogan Ceara! and 100% agree with whatever you have written…moderation is key…that’s what I have always believed in. The fruits and veggie part is easy for me since I’m a vegetarian so that’s all I eat 🙂
Thanks, Manali! I know – the fruits and veggies are a lot easier to fill in since I’ve become vegetarian as well 😉
Happy one year blogiversary Ceara! I am enjoying your posts a lot. I truly love your healthy delcious recipes!

Yay, I love the new slogan, Ceara! It’s perfect and definitely so true. I totally believe in everything in moderation and not depriving yourself. Love that you are spreading such a wonderful message 🙂
Thanks so much, Kelly!! <3
Congrats on the new slogan love the name! Feel good foods always makes up happier then junk food any day 🙂
Thanks, Shundara! I am all about the feel good food over here 🙂
Eat Happy, Live Happy just sums it all up perfectly! Love it. Totally agree with everything you said, especially about eating a great breakfast and getting in all those fruits and veggies…….and of course the occasional splurge. Everything in moderation. And don’t you think you enjoy the splurge more too when it is occasional and not like, every day or several times a day? Chocolate tastes to much better once a week, not 10 times a day.
Thanks Laura 🙂 I totally agree – everything is moderation!

Your blog is so positive and inspirational, and I always look forward to reading your posts. And you inspire me to eat better foods, though that’s still a work in progress! 🙂 I love how everything is about balance, which I think is the key to everything in life. Have a wonderful Wednesday!
