    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

    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

9 healthy snacks for when you’re on the go

There are some simple hacks in health that can improve your productivity and attention throughout the day and one I encourage most is keeping healthy snacks on hand – especially for days when you’re on the go. With a small snack you can maintain your focus and energy for longer (certainly until lunch arrives) and not dive into a state of hangry, ravenously hunting down the nearest corner store for coffee and banana bread. Get prepared and whip up or grab some of these delicious wholesome snacks to keep you firing all throughout your week.

APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE 

Made with almond meal, hazelnuts, apples and dates this slice is a sure fire way to up your energy and fibre throughout the day. Find the recipe here…

HEALTHY SNICKERS 

Sorry say what Snickers? Yep you read right and all your service station snack dreams just had a healhty makeover with this one. You can swap buckwheat for rice or quinoa puffs to suit what you have on hand. Find the recipe here…

HIDDEN VEGGIE COOKIES

Sneaking veggies into sweet treats with this scrumptious cookie. A great one for the car if you have kids too. Find the recipe here…

FRUIT WITH NUT BUTTERS

No time to cook snacks – no probs. Pick up a couple of nut butters such as an all natural peanut butter and an almond or cashew butter so there is some variety in your pantry. Team 2-3 teaspoons nut butter with sliced apple, pears, banana, strawberries you name it!

EIMELE SNACK BARS 

My personal go to for snack bars which tick all the boxes of macronutrients – protein, carbohydrates and fats in a snack too. Eimele has recently launched in Australia with a variety of snack bars, soups and breakfast foods designed for those on the go and needing more structure around portions for achieving their healthy weight range. If you’ve tuned into @brownpapernutrition recently you’ll see I’ve joined the expert panel at Eimele Australia to provide nutrition support to the growing Eimele community on their journeys in health. The Eimele range is 100% plant based, with no artificial flavours, no GMO ingredients, and are absolutely delicious.

TRAIL MIX

There a couple of ways to go about a good trail mix snack – make up one big batch and have the self control to not over eat the jar (trust me it happens to the best of us!) or I’ll encourage clients and my own community to portion out 5 trail mixes for each day of the week in a jar or container of some sort (please avoid plastic). Go for nuts and seeds and if you need the hit of sweet then a couple of dates or figs in there will do the trick.

RAW LAMINGTONS

An Australian flavour favourite just became healthified with this winning recipe that’s 100% plant based and nut free for those with any allergies or aversions to nuts. Find the recipe here… 

VEGGIE STICKS WITH HUMMUS 

Not going to lie, this has probably been my most eaten snack for the past 10 plus years. It’s a great way to up your vegetable and fibre intake in one hit and with the chickpeas in hummus, increase plant based proteins too. Grab a small tub and scoop hummus into it, then simply wash and wrap some of your favourite vegetables to go with – I’d run with carrot, cucumber, celery or capsicum to start and then see where the rainbow of vegetables at the grocery store takes you!

VEGAN MUESLI SLICE

Almost like a muesli bar but a touch more chewy and a whole lot more healthy. Nut free, plant based and keeps incredibly well in the fridge to grab and stash in your bag as you’re leaving home. Find the recipe here…
