  • You knowI havent always had this amazing love affair with
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition You know…I haven’t always had this amazing love affair with food. Far from it, for the greater part of my life food and I had a terrible relationship. I starved myself, over exercised, purged any food that did go in, cooked treats for others to disguise my eating disorder, hid food, exercised in secret, avoided shared meal times, it goes on… I could live without physically chewing any food for days at time, scared of the impact on my weight, always thinking - oh people don’t notice. It didn’t really work that way though. People noticed and the more they

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition How good is pumpkin and miso - seriously?!?!?!! One of my faaaaaave flavours combos everrrrrrr. Did you know miso is a fermented food? The Japanese often start their day with miso soup to warm and energise the body and stimulate digestion. I love love love their gentle approach to the morning with food. I knowwwwww I haven't reinvented the wheel by teaming pumpkin wth a miso dressing, I have however on this occasion gone a bit crazy with our home grown cress and then tossed it all with brown rice, peanuts and sesame seeds and a big juicy serve of

APPLE HALOUMI SALAD

We went apple picking so it only made sense to include apples in meals for the next while at least. Despite being late summer this is when new season apples are growing AND if you go pick your own at this time of year you’ll see the little guys growing ready for the picking in the weeks ahead of Autumn. Which thus may mean we can look forward to eating this APPLE HALOUMI SALAD many times again too – woo hoo!

We’ve added cooked fennel to this mix because it delivers a yummy contrast to the flavours. If you’re not a fan of the aniseedy/liquorice flavour fennel usually has then the cooking process will help reduce that – give it a try before you judge/dismiss yes?

 
BONUS FUN NUTRIENT FACT…
Did you know fennel is actually quite rich in Vitamin C? 100g of fennel, which would be around only 1/4-1/3 of a decent sized fennel bulb delivers about 20% of the recommended daily intake of Vit C.
So between the fennel, apples, rocket and lemon in this one we amping up the C factor pretty nicely for you.
 
Think about what you are eating and the beautiful nutrients in your food as you make it my friends, it really truly does make you appreciate REAL food for all that it is.
