  • One of my favourite breakfasts  SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite breakfasts - SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT QUINOA, CARAMEL NUT BUTTER AND FRESH PEARS on top for the yummy crunch factor. Kicking the day off with a fibre fuelled, nutrient dense brekky like this one sets you up for the day with good energy, helps to stabilise your appetite throughout thanks to the presence of both soluble and insoluble fibre, plant protein and healthy fats, and is easily digested. The brekky is a cracking way to help feed all the wonderful good bacteria in the gut and keep things moving down there too! If you’d like the
  • This year Ive had this absolutely wonderful human wholefoodhealing in
    17 hours ago by brownpapernutrition This year I’ve had this absolutely wonderful human  @wholefoodhealing  in my life through our work together and I couldn’t feel more grateful or more aligned with someone in this space. She’s incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, compassionate and kind, with a similar zero bs approach to nutrition, health, parenting and life. We met studying nutrition almost 9/10 years ago (how on earth was it that long?!?!) and I remember thinking what a bright light she was st the time too. This year we created a series of successful, educational workshops with more to come in 2020 and we are in the
  • SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!! First the title - second pour tea - comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don't have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a
  • CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH Thought I
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH... Thought I would miss soft cheese, mussels and prawns the most during pregnancy, turns out I miss sprouts and juicy rockmelon more! Go figure?!?!?!?! Maybe because over the past couple of years we've transitioned our diet so much more toward plants that the shellfish and cheese factor just isn't much a thing anymore, but humble ingredients that I probably didn't recognise were as present as they were are the ones I am hanging to be able to throw into meals again! This is a delicious scrambled cajun tofu bowl with sweet potato,
  • I cant even begin to describe how many Black Friday
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition I can’t even begin to describe how many Black Friday Sales ads have landed in my inbox, social streams and around the city today and it got me thinking about how we as a society consume. I am not about to get on my soap box here but I do feel the urge to drop these thoughts ... rather than consume so many material things and buy up this Friday have a think about how you can consume in ways that will make you feel greater for longer. Consume KNOWLEDGE, consume the ARTS, consume REST, consume BELLY LAUGHS with buddies,

Healthy platters on a budget

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. Amazing that old REST chestnut isn’t it? It’s amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?!
 
Back to the food…
 
This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you’re planning a get together look at doing the combination of kiddy and adult food can be a fun change, instead of separating the two, and that way we all engage with it together and kids can try and learn a few new foods in the process. Plus you’re not buying a huge number of ingredients only to see half go to waste.
 
You can see pretty easily what’s on it but just in case you’re curious for more of the details:
– beetroot hummus / regular hummus / green hummus (I just blended baby spinach and coriander into the hummus blend to make it green) topped with some dukkah
– cheddar cheese
– pears and apples
– bocconcini
– seed snaps, lavosh and blue corn / hemp corn chips (oh my god so yummy)
– cashews and walnuts
– sicilian olives (kids love these!)
– cherry tomatoes and capsicum sticks
– polski ogorki aka gherkins – because I’m a child of the 80s and they were so popular and I’m bringing them back (thanks @bondibubswholefoods for instigating that obsession!)
 
I want to mention too – this platter is really economical.
There aren’t many indulgent and expensive cheeses.
I made one hummus then just whacked in a few things here and there to make them different.
I’ve used fruit and vegetables to mix things up instead of all crackers (which can add up in price, especially if they’re not eaten and are left to go stale) and included some of my homemade seed crackers (which I batch cook and keep in an airtight jar for weeks on end).
So you can see, you can make beautiful, decadent looking but nourishing food on a budget.
Throwing a do or a cheese platter and nibbles for drinks, doesn’t have to be expensive to be healthy which I think can often happen for many people – it doesn’t have to be the case though.
 
I hope that’s given you some extra reasons to take this week by the balls so you can excitedley bring in next weekend with a healthy platter of deliciousness by your side!
 
Lots of love, Jacq xo
