  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition 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 and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a
  • RAW LAMINGTONS PLANT BASED  NUT FREE  To be
    21 hours ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!
  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.
  • So Ive just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition So I've just convinced Jet that brussel sprouts are IN FACT AWESOME. He, like many, were utterly disgusted by the miniature cabbbage like veg untillllllllll lots of olive oil and sea salt and a crispy bake came into the mix and now- the whole family are slowly morphing into brussel sprouts hehehehehehe... try it yes!!! Here's what to do: Lots (and I mean lots, not just a measly spray) of olive oil and a generous pinch of sea salt on sliced brussels, is the trick then into the oven at 200C for about 10-15 minutes depending on how much crispy

MOROCCAN PUMPKIN SALAD

Fairly in love with pumpkin, more so than sweet potato and some of the other root vegetables and this super robust dish really speaks for just how insane pumpkin is. The nature of the pumpkin carries spices such as sweet paprika, turmeric and cinnamon so well, not to mention by adding these culinary spices we add small amounts of valuable nutrients to our diet. Everything adds up, remember that. Don’t dismiss a little bit here and a little bit there to the overall combined value in our diet – think of all fruits, veggies, herbs and spices as your multivitamin.

Quick nutrition snapshot of this awesome MOROCCAN PUMPKIN SALAD and then time to dive in:

  • rich source of fibre to support digestive health
  • valuable and grain free source of carbohydrate for sustained energy
  • abundance of vitamins including vitamin C, riboflavin, potassium, copper, and manganese
  • rich in carotene (the orange in fruits and vegetables indicates the carotene) which converts to Vitamin A in the body – we mostly remember Vitamin A’s role in good vision, but it’s also considered a key nutrient in reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer
  • BONUS inclusion of pumpkin seeds and almonds means we’ve upped your daily intake of essential fats, minerals and amino acids including tryptophan which promotes relaxation, calm and supports your body’s ability to move into a peaceful sleep

Serve this one as is or pop you preferred piece of protein on top. Enjoy…
