  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest - which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

  • One of my favourite nourish bowls! Teriyaki veggies baby spinach
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite nourish bowls! Teriyaki veggies, baby spinach, pickled ginger, boiled eggies, avocadoooooo and herbs. Servin it up with some Remedy for good measure. The recipe for my teriyaki roast veggies is on the blog - so scrumptious - and you can make up the teriyaki sauce in bulk and store it too if you love it as much as I do!!!! There are 9 DIFFERENT plant based ingredients in this meal, a source of protein from eggs, fibre (vegetables) and high quality carbohydrates derived from starchy carbohydrates such as pumpkin. Whilst you may not always have a
  • So Ive just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition So I've just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN FACT AWESOME. He, like many, were utterly disgusted by the miniature cabbbage like veg untillllllllll lots of olive oil and sea salt and a crispy bake came into the mix and now- the whole family are slowly morphing into brussel sprouts hehehehehehe... try it yes!!! Here's what to do: Lots (and I mean lots, not just a measly spray) of olive oil and a generous pinch of sea salt on sliced brussels, is the trick then into the oven at 200C for about 10-15 minutes depending on how much crispy
  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.

A practise in creating happiness and content

Sunday well spent brings a week of content right? Welp, in the case of this lady it sure will… I haven’t been doing enough of the switching off on weekends thing, I’m going to fully acknowledge that. I’ve been going so fast during the week that by the time the weekend rolls around I’m shattered but have had the mindset to ‘just keep pushing on’ and keep juggling. It hasn’t always been this way, which is why I think I’m conscious of it now, I’ve experienced burnout before, I don’t want to go there again and it was time to pull myself up on this so I don’t.

This weekend I decided was going to be the start of some nourishing within again – not push to go out, not juggle too much, take naps (2 hours yesterday – 2 hours?!?! WTF that never ever happens but clearly my body was ready), go to the gym and take walks at my leisure and not punch the clock, eat yummy curry on the lounge, watch lotsssss of movies, read books, spend hours with my gorgeous girls chatting, having cuddles with bubbas, and spending an afternoon cooking in the warmth of my home.

And you know what, not surprisingly, I feel bloody awesome! So awesome that I thought I’d pick up a basket and smile at the vegetables to show it?!? 🤭That aside ….whilst I know not every weekend will be like this one, it has been a great reminder that I CAN SLOW DOWN and when that happens I feel a more wholesome human for it. Slowing down can be hard (mentally) when you’re so used to going fast, and when you decide to action the change it’s a tad confronting at first but then you adjust.

I thought I would share this, be open and honest because whilst it may SEEM like life is roses and rainbows for some because of social media, remember that we all working through our shit at different times and for different reasons, and that’s life, so long as you, we and me remember to take care of ourselves too.

Lovely humans I hope this weekend brought you some rest, and this week brings you content. Much love, Jacq xx

Oh PS! I put my cooking/meal prepping using not many ingredients on hand, on my insta-stories for you
PPS. my sister @specifiedstore gave me the basket ☺love her very much 💛
