  • Hi my lovely ones  wondering if I can plant
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Hi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this? Because really we are SO PRIVILEGED to have these

CURRIED VEGETABLE PIE

Clear obsession going on with vegetables, curry and sweet potato (baked, mashed, hashbrowns – I’ll take it whichever way) this winter! Can’t be a bad thing though they all have INSANE properties to support our health and all in one in a pie – oh baby COME AT ME!

Nutrition highlights for this one firing high, check it:

  •  VEGETABLES… where to begin, but if there is one thing to always remember and pass onto others (kids in particular) is that the increase of these wonder plants fuels our body with fibre – soluble and insoluble which aids digestion, improves bowel motions, keeps hunger at bay and can reduce the risk of chronic illness
  • CURRY SPICE – there are a few available – garam masala, curry spice, turmeric, cumin, coriander. You can honestly go with what you have on hand and use these to taste. The beauty of spicing up your meals, particularly over winter when our bodies CRAVE warming foods, is not only the flavour but these culinary spices contain both anti-inflammatory and metabolism enhancing nutrients. Winning!
  • RESISTANT STARCH which is highly available in this pie – lentils and sweet potato being the primary sources. Resistant starch works with the bacteria in our large intestine to convert to short chain fatty acids. These short chain fatty acids support the health of our bowels and work in the blood stream to help reduce cholesterol too.
