  • So Ive just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN
    6 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
  • 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
  • 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.

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
