    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition 5 INGREDIENT SPICED CAULIFLOWER AND PUMPKIN : If you have a few simple ingredients on hand you CAN make a nourishing meal. No excuses right? I generally have pumpkin and cauliflower in my fridge and because I don't want to eat it the same way all the time I throw in spices and a couple of other ingredients (kale and walnuts here) and then I've the most delicious meal on hand. Just add your choice of protein to this one and it's beautifully balanced. I've popped the recipe on the blog for you and then are lots more to come

A little lesson in finding the silver lining…

Our school holidays didn’t quiiiiiite start as planned. Our ‘plan’ was to have a super active week but on day one Jet and I were on the trampoline, he came down on his ankle the wrong way and let out a blood curdling scream. To look at it myself, the doc and radiologist were convinced it was broken, BUT being the fortunate case of the bendy young human he is, it was torn ligaments – phew. 🌈🌈In the following days my partner sliced open the back of his ankle, requiring 10 stitches and 10 days on crutches, and a day after I went out for an early morning run and stacked it – thank god it was early and no one saw me?!?! 🏃🏻

Whilst injury always feels like a set back and can get you down (physically – when you are eating pavement at 5am 😂 ) it’s also a good way to revisit what we’re grateful for and find the silver lining in it.

As Jet and I stopped after his xray for a little snack (@roughandbare for smoothies and raw donuts) he said to me “well Mum, at least I can keep the ice pack and you can freeze it and pop it in my lunchbox!”

And for Al, my partner, at least it missed his achilles and artery?!

And then as we agreed after my stack the following day, “well perhaps this is a ‘forced’ way of slowing us down -and maybe we all need it right now?”

As I had a moment to reflect the week of accidents I could only feel grateful that these were temporary things. The fact that each day I can get up, go for a run if I want, make choices about what I want to eat, how I want to live and ultimately be in great health is something I am incredibly grateful for.

There are so many people that don’t have that.

I think sometimes in our fortunate society we take a lot for granted, find negatives too easily and don’t consider how lucky we really are, and whether it’s a temporary injury or something else, it’s always important to look at the flipside, the lesson and what we are grateful for. It was just that for us, and maybe a gentle reminder to slow down too.
