  • Berry tart with a gluten free choc cinnamon and cauliflower
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Berry tart with a gluten free choc cinnamon (and cauliflower base)... I had you at berry, cinnamon, and cacao and then when I jumped in with cauliflower you no doubt questioned me am I right?????? Well, let me reassure you that whilst the wonder-veg-that-can-be-made-into-anything aka cauliflower is in this tart, you actually wouldn’t pick that it is and the tart is still deliciously sweet, wholesome and healthy all in one. I’ve included  @pompompaddock  Cauliflower Flour mix (made it with a pizza slice not long ago too!) with cacao, cinnamon, butter, and a couple of other simple ingredients for the tart

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition At this time of year I usually post several health hacks to survive the silly season but this year I am going to keep it simple with just three... 1.Keep your body moving 2.Drink plenty of water 3.Prep and pack your lunch. Why lunch? Well i figure brekky you can pretty much pick up easily even if it’s muesli and yoghurt to have at your desk but lunch rolls around and people generally have their moment of fast food temptation and then go into party food and alcohol for the evening ahead. Prep a few ingredients and pack them up
  • PEAR PUREE BAKED PEARS  HONEY RICOTTA WITH PEARS ON
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEAR PUREE, BAKED PEARS + HONEY RICOTTA WITH PEARS ON TOAST! Some for bub, some for you and a deliciously, nourishing and simple way to get good nutrition in to kick off the day. Smooth pureed Packham Pears are some of the best fruits to wean your bub and start on solids. They’re obviously so delicious, but from a nutrition perspective they’re a source of Vitamin C and the soluble fibre, pectin, which helps support bowel movements in bubs too. Not sure how or when to start? A small portion (1/2 – 1 teaspoon) first thing in the morning is
  • I waited a long time for someone like this beautiful
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition I waited a long time for someone like this beautiful man to walk into my life. He is kind, oh so patient, humble, just a bit divinely handsome, present, conscious and considered, loyal and equally strong as he allows himself to be vulnerable. He doesn’t let me sit in a funk for too long before stepping in with his love and reminding me of all the great things we share. He’s incredibly gentle but with a grip and cuddle so tight I know he will never let go. I am truly the luckiest to have you in my life  @svendsenfitnesshealth

5 Ways To Reboot Your Health Routine

Words and image: GENEVIEVE MORTON

Somewhere between tapping’ snooze’ and chocolate-fuelled Netflix binges, you may have abandoned your healthy routine. It’s not always easy to eat well and exercise in Winter when you’re craving comfort food and extra time under the doona.

The start of Spring is a great time to reboot your healthy routine – and make it even better.

5 WAYS TO REBOOT YOUR HEALTH ROUTINE:

  1. Buddy up. You may not be the only one who spent too much time on the couch this Winter. Find your running buddies and set up a weekly time and place to meet for a workout. You’re less likely to flake on a workout if someone is depending on you to be there. According to hbfitness.com.au you’ll get more physical benefits out of a shared session too. ‘You’ll work a bit harder with a partner – it can bring out a competitive instinct that allows you both to push your limits.’ You’re also more likely to try exercise classes outside your comfort zone like zumba or bikram yoga.
  2. Plan to enjoy it.  Having a militant gym schedule is great – unless you don’t like it. You need to enjoy your healthy routine or you won’t maintain it. The best kind of motivation is ‘intrinsic’ where it’s easier to get going because you love what you’re doing. So, ask yourself what you used to like about your healthy routine? Drag out your favourite recipe books and go back to the walking track you love. Meanwhile, let go of what you didn’t like about your old routine (the one you left behind in Winter). If you really don’t like taking exercise classes, don’t schedule them into your week. If you don’t like eating salad for dinner, don’t make it. Plan to enjoy your healthy routine as much as possible and you’ll stick to it – long-term.
  3. Set a bedtime alarm. Yes, alarms aren’t just for torturing yourself with at 6am. Set an alarm at a certain time at night to remind you to start your wind down to bed routine. The right amount of sleep is the foundation of a healthy routine so aim to get between 7 and 9 hours a night. According to shape.com sleep controls your diet. ‘Lack of sleep pushes you in the direction of the foods you know you shouldn’t eat. You just don’t have the mental clarity to make good decisions, specifically with the regards to the food you eat – or the foods you want to avoid.’ The secret to solid snoozing is sticking to a sleep schedule. Get up at the same time everyday – even on weekends. Set a bedtime for yourself allowing at least 7 hours sleep – and stick to it.
  4. Pack your lunch. Sounds simple, right? Packing a healthy lunch along with snacks for the entire day stops you from engaging in an unhealthy afternoon spiral. Pack your gym gear too. Having your gym bag packed and ready to go with you at work will help you get to the gym during your lunch break or after work. Setting yourself up for success means planning for potential slip-ups too. You can plan ahead by simply knowing what your unhealthy eating triggers are. Your stressful job sends you on a chocolate binge? Make a healthier after dinner alternative and stash it in the freezer. Friday night means pizza? Make a healthy zucchini-base pizza for the freezer too.
  5. Build yourself back up. Not many of us can jump straight into HIIT five times a week after slothing about on the couch all Winter. Start with something easy. Get outside and take the dog for a walk. Make a start and go from there. Treat exercise like an unbreakable work meeting. Schedule it in your diary and don’t miss it. Once you get rolling, set yourself a personal challenge. Having a 4 or 6 week challenge to achieve a certain goal will get you back into an exercise routine and set you up for ongoing healthy exercise habits.
