  • NOURISHING CAESAR SALAD My way Living my best life with
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition NOURISHING CAESAR SALAD... My way Living my best life with this delicious and more nourishing take on a caesar. Pumping up the greens, adding in some kraut, garlic toasted croutons from the bread bums of my sourdough loaf, eggs for protein and iron, healthy fats in walnuts and avo, and swapping out a cream dressing for yoghurt (you could use dairy or coyo) dressing which is NEXT LEVEL. I'd say this is ticking all the nutrient boxes in a meal and it'll be on repeat on your weekly salad rep in no time at all. Copy link below in comments

  • Brekky on repeat at the moment Seriously hits the spot
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Brekky on repeat at the moment. Seriously hits the spot and will surprise you how quick it is... as quick as cooking an omelette cos that’s what it is!!!!! SWEET BANANA OMELETTE (or pancake if you want to reframe it for kids!) with a bit of yogurt and berries over the top! To make it simply: mash 1 banana in a bowl, whisk in 2 free range eggs, dash of vanilla and whisk until creamy and not too lumpy. Then cook it in a greased frypan, on a medium heat until you see the sides looked mostly cooked but the

I don’t always have my s*%# together, no one does, and that’s ok

This photo on the left is strong, the photo on the right is strong.

They’re strong for different reasons.

It’s important you see both.

Most days I show up give and 250% but if on the next I’m wrecked I know my strongest card is giving myself permission to step back + not have the awful, heavy feeling that I’m not DOING or BEING enough.

I don’t keep pushing to keep a facade that I can have so much going on and still keep it all together. It’s not possible to do so, yet so many of us feel we need to keep pushing ourselves despite the impact on our health.

It took a REALLY LONG TIME for me to be able to recognise this.

I’m sharing because I see / talk to so many people who are burning the candle at both ends in order to simply KEEP UP with the tremendous list of shit that needs to happen to keep their game face on. They feel pressure to do and be it all.

REMEMBER: everyone is actually running THEIR OWN RACE, the only pressure is that which you create for yourself. It’s actually YOUR CHOICE.

You don’t always need a game face on, your greatest strength is also allowing yourself to feel / be vulnerable, recognise when you just need time out to recover and also so powerful….to ask for help.

Get real + raw with yourself (more frequently than you think or want to) and understand why you’re trying to do THAT MUCH, then revisit your true values and reassess your life a little. If you don’t, the inevitable will happen – you’ll burn out too.

Do something for me today, carve out some time to check in with how much you have going on and look at how you can trim it back and create some space to switch off and rest.

If you feel like today is a great day and you’ve done that recently for yourself, then turn to others + check in – ask your friends, family, or maybe it’s someone you feel needs support but struggles to ask for it, if they are genuinely doing ok.

Sending lotsa love to those who feel like today isn’t a day they want to face + letting you know it’s ok not to have your shit together everyday. No one actually does, you are strong and wonderful no matter what, just remember to take care of you.

All my love, Jacq xo
