    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil

    18 hours ago by brownpapernutrition VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICE...a great intro recipe for anyone who hasn’t dabbled with wholefood treats much before as it’s simple and delicious. It’s also a winner for my pregnant and breastfeeding mums out there for a few reasons too. DATES are a wonderful source of fibre – fuelling beneficial gut bacteria, sustaining energy levels and appetite and supporting gut motility to keep you and your bowels regular. Post partum constipation is a common condition for many women which may result from the effects of pregnancy hormones, haemorrhoids, pain from episiotomy or iron supplementation (there are many non-constipating iron supplements now
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth 
  • QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the beautiful seasonal peaches we have in Australia. Peaches contain valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and my fave fibre - making them an easy means of upping your daily intake by integrating them into your diet as snacks and meals too of course! I team this salad with a piece of fresh salmon, barramundi or a juicy big handful of chickpeas or butterbeans - it's scrumptious! I've popped my recipe on the link in comments below for you. Copy and paste to cook and dive in!!! Jacq xo  #plantbased   @eimele_australia   @aussiesummerstonefruit   @countryroad 
  • Hi friends please excuse my radio silence as weve launched
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Hi friends, please excuse my radio silence as we've launched into 2020 I had a little break from social media to refresh and have honestly just felt a bit speechless with the bush fire devastation in our country so haven't been posting, rather I've quietly plugged away with $ donations to different charities, donated supplies to any of the collections possible and have been supporting those close to us, in particular my family, caught in the fires. My aunty has had to evacuate her home, it's situated right in the middle of the two southern fires, as a family we

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.

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,...
