  • 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

  • How good is pumpkin and miso  seriously?!?!?!! One of
    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

Berry Naked Smoothie Bowl…that will actually satisfy you

I don’t really order smoothie bowls when I’m out and about, I see all the insta-spam of acai bowls and I’ve tried them but to be honest they simply never satisfy me. Most of those produced and purchased out at shops are acai with fruit and then a generous dose of more fruit, maybe some granola and if you so choose a squeeze of peanut butter on top. There’s not really enough protein in these bowls to satiate appetite and equally as important, balance blood sugar levels. So, I save my smoothie bowl making for home and know that I’ll be as satisfied after eating it as I would avo and egg on toast.

The key ingredients in any meal are protein, carbohydrates and fats, which are our macronutrients. When we balance these macronutrients the result is not only a nutritionally balanced meal but a very happy tummy and reduced likelihood that you’ll be reaching for another snack within 1-2 hours.

In my recipe below I’ve ensured there is protein, carbs and fats and enough of each so you’ll have the energy you need to charge through the day. I’ve also added a dash of collagen powder to support gut, bone, connective tissue and skin health.

Tell me your favourite balanced smoothie bowl combos in the comments below… Jacq x
