    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Did you know… exercise supports GIT (gastro intestinal) health from gut motility to even increasing the diversity of gut micro flora? (Monda, Villano et al 2017) That’s just a start too... There have been a number of recent studies showing the impact exercise has on our gut microbiome. Exercise has such incredible benefits for our mental and cardiovascular health, skin and obviously to support and strengthen our musculo skeletal system too. For me... exercise reduces any stress and anxiety, keeps things moving, shaking and strengthening within, increases my productivity with work, challenges me so that I can overcome other obstacles

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition If you have carrots and chocolate then whack them together to make this scrumptious EASTER BUNNY BREAD (ok it’s more cake like but bread sounds better for this title and I couldn’t find my cake tin thus loaf tin soooooooo...) it’s a fun way to use up the imminent overload of chocolate this weekend whilst actually adding some quality nutrients to a snack. The recipe is below! You can use buckwheat, brown rice or your own blend of gluten free flour in the mix, up to you! ‍ (Side note : the moon looks stunning tonight - is a full

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the weekend? YES. Am I worried about it? NO. Indulgence is healthy and you don't need to be highly restrictive with your food intake or over exercising this week to compensate for the Easter weekend. Just get back to the foundations of a healthy diet - stacks of vegetables, some good quality protein and a nugget of healthy fats to balance your meals. I personally crave the simple things after a yummy weekend of eating with family so this plate of steamed veggies with a basic home made satay (recipe below)

Gluten free sticky date loaf with caramel (dairy free) butter

If you love dates and love caramelly flavours then this one has your name lathered alllllllllll over it my friend. I made it gluten and nut free (with the exception of the caramel butter but up to you if you want to make it to go with) so it’s a bonza snack for lunch boxes, taking to work to share with friends, or you know just making it for you and popping it sliced up in the freezer for a yummy treat! Recipe below…. Jacq 😚

STICKY DATE LOAF WITH CARAMEL (DAIRY FREE) BUTTER 

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Nut free (option)

Serves 10

Heat oven to 170c. Combine 250g pitted dates with 200ml water, 1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda and pop on low heat on stove to simmer and soften until the water is almost all absorbed. Stir throughout cooking. Once cooked set aside to cool slightly. In a large bowl whisk together 1/4 cup coconut oil or melted butter, 1/2 cup @mayversfoodtahini, 1/4 cup maple syrup and 2 eggs until creamy. Add 1/2 cup buckwheat flour, 1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/4 cup desiccated coconut, 1.5 teaspoons baking powder and cooked dates then mix to combine. Pour into a lined 12x24cm loaf tin and place in oven to cook for 45-50 minutes, test with a skewer to make sure it’s cooked through. Cool in tin for 20 minutes then remove and pop on a rack.

Whilst cooling you can make a CARAMEL BUTTER if you like by whisking together 2tbsp @mayversfood almond butter, 1 tablespoon nut milk with 1 tbsp maple syrup until smooth. Smear onto date loaf and enjoy!!!!
