  • I wasnt going to post this because Ive never been
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I wasn’t going to post this because I’ve never been great with a selfie and my ego says “eeeek Jacq don’t do that!” any time I’ve considered it but you know what? - This is actually the STRONGEST AND FITTEST I’ve felt in YEARS! ☺️It’s ridiculous that so often we don’t acknowledge our achievements isn’t it? That our ego will say “do more, be more, more more more!!!!” but you MUST PAUSE and celebrate your goals otherwise what is actually the point?!?!?! I’ve put in a massive effort to create more BALANCE in my exercise in order to feel this

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition GLUTEN AND GRAIN FREE APPLE HAZELNUT SLICE Did you know apple season actually starts in January? I was always baffled by this because I felt forever that apples were an autumn or winter fruit, but they start so much earlier than we think. So now that it’s February and apples are dropping fresh from the tree, it’s time for some tribute recipes to the humble fruit. This Apple Hazelnut Slice is one of my favourites of late. It’s scrumptious of course, but also gluten and grain free and my absolute winning element is actually step 2 of the recipe which


One of my intentions for this year is to make little things for and to see more of my beautiful friends. Sometimes I’ll post them, sometimes I’ll leave them on their doorstep, sometimes I’ll be able to give them with a cuddle. Last year I didn’t see enough of my friends, this year will be different.

Now whilst THIS ‘post’ isn’t what I mean by posting (think snail mail Australia post style), I did want to make some of the recipes my gorgeous friends do and share them with you here also. Recipes we’ve devoured together on some of our brunches, lunches, dinners and arvo teas – recipes made with love.

My primary school buddy, Anna, makes this SWEET BREKKY RICE all the time, and brought it on an occasion to brunch and it is HEAVEN. I always nudge her for the recipe but as with the simplicity of this dish it’s one of those you can pop in whatever it is on hand and in season which is what lovely Anna does every time she makes it.

Whilst there are there of plenty of reasons to dive into this dish I personally love most of all that it’s made with rice because as a grain rice is one that loves my gut most. Yep, not quinoa, not buckwheat, not oats – rice… And it’s important for me to tune into that.

Not everyone digests the food the same, so when it comes to food take the time (because too many of us rush) to tune in and listen to how your body responds ok?

If you push against that and persevere with something that doesn’t work for you but you ‘think’ should then you do yourself a disservice. And if you’re new on the health journey then leaning gently into the simple staples, rice my example here, might be an easier step for you than launching hell for leather into superfood smoothie bowls. Those can happen in time – if they work for YOU. Remember that…

And on that note, if rice does work for your gut, then this recipe you will adore.

From Anna (and a sprinkle of Brown Paper..), with love.
