    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

    24 hours 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)

Healthy frozen mango macadamia bar

It’s only 200 days in a mango season – which seems like a lot, but when it’s during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangoes, eating of mangoes and cooking with said mangoes the season seems to go far too quickly would you agree?

So I made the most of the above mentioned seeing, eating and cooking with mangoes and made a HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR.

It’s a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter… although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripey portion isn’t cream but macadamias makes it even more delicious. I used the nutty component from my recipe for Tropical Macadamia Bark here and added some melted cacao butter to the blend so it would hold well and it did!

Truthfully – I think the ratio of the bar is a little imbalanced and maybe there should be a bit more mango than white so if you’re doing so either reduce the white component or pump up the mango a bit more – maybe by an extra 50%. You can play around, this recipe is super flexible, you actually can’t go too wrong with it no matter what you do so long as you have the key ingredients.

HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR 

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Paleo : Vegetarian (vegan optional)

Serves 10

Mango layer (can increase the mangoes here for a higher mango ratio)

2 large mangoes, flesh scooped out

Cream layer:

2/3 cup coconut oil, melted on low heat
3/4 cup natural macadamias
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey

80g raw cacao butter, melted on low heat

Blend mangoes and pour into lined 12x24cm loaf tin, then place in freezer.

Clean out blender.

Add melted coconut oil, macadamias, vanilla, honey or maple if vegan option, and melted raw cacao butter to blender and blitz until smooth.

Pour over the mango layer and place back in freezer to set for 6 hours.

Allow to thaw for 10 minutes or so before slicing with a hot knife (dip the knife in some boiling water) and serving.
