  • TERIYAKI NO MEAT BALL BOWL  of delicious satisfying happiness!
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition TERIYAKI (NO) MEAT BALL BOWL - of delicious, satisfying happiness! Pickled onion are a staple in our fridge. I use an apple cider vinegar base for it and it's literally ready in 20 minutes for whichever meal I like and then keeps in the fridge a few weeks... if it lasts. Best way to pimp up a meal, adds valuable prebiotic fibres and quercetin to the diet and sans raw onion breath too - win! The (no) meatballs are made with quinoa, beans and mushies and absolutely heaven. Make please! Popped the full recipe on  @bodyandsoul_au  beautiful humans. J xo
  • EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY Making this one because Ive not
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition EGGPLANT MUNG BEAN CURRY: Making this one because I’ve not been able to stop thinking about it but also to store in the freezer for post partum meals which are easy to pull, defrost, nourish and restore. The eggplant gives a really substantial element to this curry, complimented well by mung beans. Mung beans are some of my favourites for curries, they have a delicious flavour, but also deliver significant amounts of fibre, plant based amino acids for protein, iron and interestingly a dense amount of folate too. Folate (Vitamin B9) during pregnancy is required to help reduce the risk

    21 hours ago by brownpapernutrition MANGO YOGHURT RICOTTA SLICE... cheesecake thing which I made with a few things in the fridge and inspired by my case of mangoes : ) I made it by whisking together 3/4 cup ricotta, 3/4 cup greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons honey, 2 free range eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 medium very sweet aka brown banana and 2 teaspoons lime zest until all creamy and delicious. Then poured it into a lined loaf tin and popped it in the oven at 180C for about an hour - or until a skewer came out clean and the top
  • Finished my final work submission today a really bloody exciting
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Finished my final work submission today (a really bloody exciting one too!) before I take time out for birth and beyond yassssssssss bebe girl you is welcome to come into the world anytime... but preferably on the weekend when I’ve ticked a few more boxes of the stuff that needs to happen including putting my heavily swollen feet up somehow. I’ll be honest I feel a bit weird and nervous about taking a step away from my business for the next while, I have driven this engine for a solid 7+ years now and not taken any real extended leave,

Are potatoes good for you?

Julia Childs once said “people who love to eat are always the best people”. I’d like to add something in there (if you don’t mind Julz)… “people who love to eat POTATOES are always the best people”. Potatoes of all kinds receive such a bashing, but potatoes have for centuries been a staple food in many cultures and it’s really our western culture that’s tarnished their other wise good intentions as part of a healthy diet. I’ve know I’ve said this before but if you have fear of the potato because they’re so dense in #carbs, please try to understand what it is about a wholesome carbohydrate experience you’re fearing and work on that before demonising this humble vegetable – they actually serve great purpose in our diet.
If you need a refresher allow me to have your eyes and ears a moment more… white, orange, purple – all of them contain FIBRE. Fibre is up there as one of my favourite nutrients to encourage people to focus on because it is what fuels the bacteria in our gut microbiome.
WHITE POTATOES in particular cooked and cooled (steam them and make a taty salad or whack them in your lunchbowl) are a rich source of resistant starch – this type of starch ‘resists’ digestion in the upper GI tract, toddles on down to the lower aka large bowel, ferments, and feeds the cells in the lining of the gut, protecting it from digestive and other chronic disease.
Meanwhile SWEET POTATOES have the epic antioxidant factor including anthocyanins and beta-carotene which can help protect the body from chronic disease, support the function of our immune system and the strength of our vision just as a start.
The way we cook them is a factor in our enjoyment and so when you do include them naturally avoiding the deep frier is important but try to stick to steaming mostly and seasoning with delicious, hells yeah herbs and spices, or baking them with a drizzle of evoo and serving it up with a balance of other macros (protein, healthy fats) on your plate.
Potatoes cooked like this are SUPER my friend, don’t avoid them, enjoy them! From your humble potato lovin buddy – Jacq xo
