    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

    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

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

    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 
  • 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 

JELLY GUMMIES GREAT FOR TUMMIES

Last week at the Goodnessme Box Wholefoods Markets presos I introduced the crowd to the delicious delights that are gelatin gummies. We’ve only just really started playing around with these ourselves recently so with that experience I thought absolutely there may be a few others out there who would love them – and the result was a big juicy YES!

These gelatin gummies are so scrumptious yet because they’re made of just a few simple whole ingredients and non of the colours, additives, sugars or preservatives that come with traditional jelly / gummies / lollies it makes them not only easy but super nutritious too.

How nutritious?

Well, let’s take their main ingredient : gelatin, from pasture fed and raised cows (we used the I Quit Sugar Gelatin Powder as it’s so easy, but Great Lakes do a great product or you can hunt down other alternatives should you wish – please share if you do find a good one in the comments below!).

Gelatin (cooked collagen from from the connective tissue and bones of animals) is rich in amino acids, the building blocks for proteins – remember protein vital for growth development and repair, stabilising energy and appetite among a tonne of other things but hold onto those nuggets for now. However of these proteins gelatin is supercharged with glycine, an amino acids used to strengthen the lining of our gut. When our gut integrity is good and we have a beautiful strong lining we absorb the nutrition in our diet well. Well absorbed nutrition means we can THRIVE.

BUT! Gelatin, made from collagen, is also WONDERFUL for our skin health (natural collagen + skin = youthful glowing plump skin cells = happiness) and to improve the mobility of our joints too (returning to our equation – mobile joints = lots of activity = feel young = happiness!!!!)

So, whilst the little gelatin / jelly gummies are great for kids to improve the state of their gut and for a legit tasty and nutritious alternative to the crud you find in the confectionery isle of your local, honestly, they’re good for all of us. Everyone can do with a bit more care and attention to their gut – it’s where our health stems from.

Recipe for these delicious juicy numbers below. Will continue popping some recipes up for different flavours we make as we explore and build our fun with this goodness!

JELLY GUMMIES 

Makes 12 small gummies (we used a silicon ice cube tray)

1/2 cup no sugar added juice / fresh pressed juice : orange, apple, berry

1-2 tablespoons rice malt syrup or 2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon gelatin (we used I Quit Sugar) 

1 1/2 tablespoons water

Warm juice and sweetener of choice on the stove in a small saucepan until medium warm. Do not boil.

Whilst juice is warming, mix together gelatin and water. It will be clumpy, don’t freak out it all comes together.

Once juice is warm, remove from heat and add gelatin mix to the saucepan. Whisk until dissolved.

Pour into silicion moulds or a lined square cake tin and place in fridge for 1 hour to set.

Keep up to 1 week in the fridge.
