  • WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK TO DIVERSIFY YOUR PLANT BASED NUTRIENT INTAKE? I'm trying something new - JACKFRUIT!!!! Fun!!!! I was given some recently so had to throw it into good ole mexican with delicious spices - smoky paprika, cumin, cori, chilli, and lots of fresh veggies all wrapped up in a taco. Can't imagine life without Mexican food or VEGETABLES. Might need a trip to Mexico to completely immerse myself in the food and flavours and become a taco. Obsessed by veggies and look well I know jackfruit is a fruit, but I think
  • A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel Community in Bondi Beach. A few years ago I set up a roster which I named "THE MUFFIN PROJECT" and each week either myself, a friend, family or someone from my community helped bake muffins and deliver them to Wayside in Potts Point or Bondi for their community to enjoy. Wayside has been around for decades, supporting those in our community who perhaps do not have a home, have experienced domestic violence, grief, loss and the list goes on. Their cafes serve these beautiful people and when I offered to

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Brekky on repeat at the moment. Seriously hits the spot and will surprise you how quick it is... as quick as cooking an omelette cos that’s what it is!!!!! SWEET BANANA OMELETTE (or pancake if you want to reframe it for kids!) with a bit of yogurt and berries over the top! To make it simply: mash 1 banana in a bowl, whisk in 2 free range eggs, dash of vanilla and whisk until creamy and not too lumpy. Then cook it in a greased frypan, on a medium heat until you see the sides looked mostly cooked but the

Batch cooking ideas and my simple red lentil dhal recipe

It’s coming into the cooler months of the year in my home town which means a few more warming dinners and dhal is one of my favourites. I tend to make up a batch of this when I can, we eat some, and I freeze the rest in portions which makes life THAT MUCH EASIER...

CARROT AND KALE DHAL

This is delicious when fresh but after day one it will be best kept in the fridge up to 1 week or sliced and stored in the freezer up to 3 weeks. Toasting the loaf brings out the flavours.

SWEET POTATO AND KALE DHAL

Vegan mushroom pineapple stir fry

Juicy sweet but savoury and a little bit spicy – Mushroom Pineapple Stir Fry – inspired by our travels to Sri Lanka (and more of these recipes coming too…). On one evening we had the pleasure of doing a Ayurvedic/vegan cooking class in a 185 year old kitchen with Chef Shan in Weligama. Thanks to...

Spicy bean, corn and coconut salad with turmeric spiced nuts

You might be noticing I’m including different types of beans / legumes in my recipes more frequently in the past 6 months or maybe a little longer. A few reasons for this… + they’re pumped with high quality nutrients – with protein and fibre topping the list + they’re an economical source of protein to...

HOW TO SWAP MEAT FOR VEGGIES

Whether you’re a vegetarian or an avid meat eater, to be honest we can all do more eating of plants. However, it can be tricky if you’re not quite sure where to start right? Here are a few ideas for making your old favourites (burgers, lasagne, stews, eggs and bacon) without sacrificing flavour and certainly...

HOW TO WIN AT MEAL PREP

One of the first comments / excuses I hear from people when it comes to getting organised about their nutrition is that they don’t have time. Most of us are time poor at some stage, so whilst I totally understand the busy-ness that is life, I still truly believe that allocating a small amount of...

AYURVEDA FOOD AS MEDICINE

WORDS AND RECIPE : Jody Vassallo www.beautifulfood.com.au  I consider dhal to be a medicine, it stimulates the digestive fire and really cools the body. It is very soothing for the digestive system as recommended for people with IBS or diverticulitis. I like to serve my dhal with basmati rice as they do in India. Moong...

PANTRY MUST HAVES TO KEEP YOU IN GOOD HEALTH

No denying there are a fair few ingredients constituting the pantry of a nutritionist, and whilst not all items are absolute necessity (the diversity of ingredients definitely comes with curiosity in food creations) there are some which will help keep your health in check as you move into the year ahead. When you fuel your pantry, fridge,...
