    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on

    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can

  • Little reminder for you Remember that protein comes via many
    18 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Little reminder for you. Remember that protein comes via many different foods so if you hear us nutrition folk banging on about protein for breakfast we don’t expect or want you to get up and eat steak, bacon and eggs for brekky everyday. Mix up the variety of proteins in your diet. Why some protein in the morning? It helps stabilise both your appetite and energy levels to start the day, and of course by including it in any meal, so if we have an opportunity to positively impact our energy then why wouldn’t we? Try these quick ideas to
  • PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE  Id say treat yoself cos its
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

31 WAYS TO EAT AVOCADO

WORDS : ELAINE FORMBY, Brown Paper Intern and Nutrition / Dietetics Student

We all know that avo is the secret hero to all happiness in the kitchen but did you know just how many ways you can eat it beyond the ole faithful avo on toast? And do you remember all the great reasons avo is just such a wonderful team player in health? Tune in for some avo lovin…

WE LOVE THE NUTRITION IN AVOCADO BECAUSE…

Avocado is a source of monounsaturated fat: 

  • Reduces the bad cholesterol levels in your blood
  • Provides nutrients to help and maintain your bodies cells
  • Aids in weight loss as a healthier alternative to margarine or mayonnaise

Avos are a great source of antioxidants: 

  • Containining natural antioxidants including vitamin E
  • Anti-inflammatory compounds helping to protect against cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes
  • Contains vitamin C to support collagen production to maintain skin elasticity

They’re rich in protein and fibre:

  • To keep our digestive systems healthy whilst also keeping us fuller for longer
  • Contains fibre to help absorb the high amounts of protein and assists fat burning and building lean muscle mass

But we wouldn’t leave you hanging on just that, we reached out to our Instagram community to find out their favourite ways to eat avocado and of course added a few of our own!
