  • Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didnt
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICE...a great intro recipe for anyone who hasn’t dabbled with wholefood treats much before as it’s simple and delicious. It’s also a winner for my pregnant and breastfeeding mums out there for a few reasons too. DATES are a wonderful source of fibre – fuelling beneficial gut bacteria, sustaining energy levels and appetite and supporting gut motility to keep you and your bowels regular. Post partum constipation is a common condition for many women which may result from the effects of pregnancy hormones, haemorrhoids, pain from episiotomy or iron supplementation (there are many non-constipating iron supplements now
  • QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the beautiful seasonal peaches we have in Australia. Peaches contain valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and my fave fibre - making them an easy means of upping your daily intake by integrating them into your diet as snacks and meals too of course! I team this salad with a piece of fresh salmon, barramundi or a juicy big handful of chickpeas or butterbeans - it's scrumptious! I've popped my recipe on the link in comments below for you. Copy and paste to cook and dive in!!! Jacq xo  #plantbased   @eimele_australia   @aussiesummerstonefruit   @countryroad

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Lunch date with my monkey and my dad Making the most of a little chats and eating with two hands for the next few weeks! Pretty special to have this time together, although not sure I can do this heat for too much longer, is about 17deg c hotter inside my Buddha body right now... think Jet’s favourite part of my pregnancy has been the arrival of my outie belly button and his obsession with pressing it it feels SO WEIRD but glad it gives him some giggle I guess? ‍♀️ Also a few new preg first time mummas asked

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
