  • You knowI havent always had this amazing love affair with
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition You know…I haven’t always had this amazing love affair with food. Far from it, for the greater part of my life food and I had a terrible relationship. I starved myself, over exercised, purged any food that did go in, cooked treats for others to disguise my eating disorder, hid food, exercised in secret, avoided shared meal times, it goes on… I could live without physically chewing any food for days at time, scared of the impact on my weight, always thinking - oh people don’t notice. It didn’t really work that way though. People noticed and the more they

  • How good is pumpkin and miso  seriously?!?!?!! One of
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition How good is pumpkin and miso - seriously?!?!?!! One of my faaaaaave flavours combos everrrrrrr. Did you know miso is a fermented food? The Japanese often start their day with miso soup to warm and energise the body and stimulate digestion. I love love love their gentle approach to the morning with food. I knowwwwww I haven't reinvented the wheel by teaming pumpkin wth a miso dressing, I have however on this occasion gone a bit crazy with our home grown cress and then tossed it all with brown rice, peanuts and sesame seeds and a big juicy serve of

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…
