    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Naming this dish -  #lovelyleftovers  ...I truly believe some of my best creations come from the ‘scraps’ in the fridge. It forces me into a creative space that absolutely LOVE and ensures there is zero food waste in our home. This ZUCCHINI PINENUT BASIL PARMESAN PASTA comes thanks to afore mentioned (bit bendy) zucchini and other random bits I found in the fridge : +leftover roasted spanish onion + leftover marinated kale (olive oil kale and sea salt) + some lemon zest from a lemon I’d squeezed into my water. + a few pinenuts left which I toasted in the

  • Totally logical that the first celebration to follow Mothers Day
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Totally logical that the first celebration to follow Mother’s Day is INTERNATIONAL HUMMUS DAY personally I loooooove a hummus party, can easily turn a simple veggie plate into something super juicy I also often encourage clients to have hummus and veggie sticks as an afternoon snack. The combo is a great source of fibre, plant based protein, energy sustaining carbohydrates, calcium and healthy fats from tahini. This hummus party though - roasted broccoli, Spanish onion, cauliflower, sweet potato, coriander, dukkah, cherry tomatoes, hummus of course and totally more-ish turmeric chilli honey walnuts almonds and sunflower seeds - swipe over to

13 ingredients you’ll always find in my fridge

Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team below and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.

  1. Lemons – simple but important, for drinking, juicing and balancing flavours in meals (curries and stir fries etc) plus the acids in lemon help to tenderise (chicken, meat and fish if you choose) and break down proteins so they are more readily absorbed by the body
  2. Kraut or kimchi – they’re both a great source of enzymes to support healthy digestion but they flavours also add great value to simple meals like grilled fish with sauteed spinach and avo or a delicious nourish bowl which I do quite a few of! My favourite is Peace Love and Vegetables
  3. Hummus – if I have time, I’ll make my own, otherwise I’ll go for one of my favourites such as Pilpel or Yalla
  4. KombuchaRemedy of course!
  5. Nut milk – I never make nut mylk, it’s the one thing I simply cannot be bothered to make and there are some great brands on the market – currently sitting in the fridge is Nutty Bruce, however I stash extra in the pantry from Woolworths too
  6. Carrots – when asked what my favourite snack is, carrots are the reply! This comes as a surprise to some, I think they’re expecting some creative raw treat but to be honest I think there’s nothing better than carrots and hummus – and the combo ups your fibre, beta-carotene and plant based protein intake for the day too
  7. Frozen peas (ok so these are freezer ingredients but you get me) because they’re delicious, sweet but savoury and easy to stash into the freezer and blanch quickly to throw into a salad for the green component with grated carrot, eggs, feta, kraut and olives!
  8. Frozen spinach – makes for a great back up green hit, the nuggets of spinach you could also throw into your smoothie to ice and boost your green vitamin and mineral intake for the morning if it’s sitting in the freezer and you don’t have any baby spinach handy – tricks yes!
  9. Maple syrup – for the moment when I MUST MAKE CHOCOLATE. The 3 ingredient combination for raw chocolate I stand by is maple, raw cacao and coconut oil. From there you can be adventurous but these are the best to start with
  10. Olives – because if there’s nothing in the fridge and I’m waiting for home delivery to arrive, then olives and red wine will keep me sane – hehe. Also Jet LOVES olives and it’s a great pre dinner, savoury snack for him too. We usually keep kalamata and Sicilian green on hand
  11. Goat cheese or feta – do these need explaining? I admittedly keep the marinated variety on hand because it’s scrumptious and what really is life without some indulgences, and as they keep better too
  12. Buckwheat or quinoa bread sliced and frozen – that way you’re never short on a meal, also such a great solution when you come home from travel! Find the recipe for Quinoa Seed Bread here and Buckwheat Sweet Potato Bread here. 
  13. Onions – basic but delicious and with an onion I can create a pantry curry with lentils and probably peas from the freezer and then a meal is ready! Did you know onions are a great source of prebiotic fibre to feed the healthy gut bacteria too? Nutrition factoid for you to take with you today!
