    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH... Thought I would miss soft cheese, mussels and prawns the most during pregnancy, turns out I miss sprouts and juicy rockmelon more! Go figure?!?!?!?! Maybe because over the past couple of years we've transitioned our diet so much more toward plants that the shellfish and cheese factor just isn't much a thing anymore, but humble ingredients that I probably didn't recognise were as present as they were are the ones I am hanging to be able to throw into meals again! This is a delicious scrambled cajun tofu bowl with sweet potato,
  • SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE!!!!! My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!! First the title - second pour tea - comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don't have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a
  • One of my favourite breakfasts  SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite breakfasts - SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT QUINOA, CARAMEL NUT BUTTER AND FRESH PEARS on top for the yummy crunch factor. Kicking the day off with a fibre fuelled, nutrient dense brekky like this one sets you up for the day with good energy, helps to stabilise your appetite throughout thanks to the presence of both soluble and insoluble fibre, plant protein and healthy fats, and is easily digested. The brekky is a cracking way to help feed all the wonderful good bacteria in the gut and keep things moving down there too! If you’d like the
  • I cant even begin to describe how many Black Friday
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I can’t even begin to describe how many Black Friday Sales ads have landed in my inbox, social streams and around the city today and it got me thinking about how we as a society consume. I am not about to get on my soap box here but I do feel the urge to drop these thoughts ... rather than consume so many material things and buy up this Friday have a think about how you can consume in ways that will make you feel greater for longer. Consume KNOWLEDGE, consume the ARTS, consume REST, consume BELLY LAUGHS with buddies,
  • This year Ive had this absolutely wonderful human wholefoodhealing in
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition This year I’ve had this absolutely wonderful human  @wholefoodhealing  in my life through our work together and I couldn’t feel more grateful or more aligned with someone in this space. She’s incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, compassionate and kind, with a similar zero bs approach to nutrition, health, parenting and life. We met studying nutrition almost 9/10 years ago (how on earth was it that long?!?!) and I remember thinking what a bright light she was st the time too. This year we created a series of successful, educational workshops with more to come in 2020 and we are in the

Musings on motherhood and an (almost) decade between babies

“Feel like I’m going back to square one” I keep hearing myself say in response to people asking how I feel about our bubba. And then I caught myself saying it recently to someone, and obviously to myself because our words are a product of how we feel and thought actually no, Jacq, you’re not, you have a lot more lessons than when you started the journey in motherhood with Jet almost 10 years ago. So I thought I would share 5 of (the many) lessons I have learned with you too…

  1. Take the time you need. I rushed a lot with Jet. Mostly with healing and I pay the price for it now. I went back to exercise WAY TOO SOON because I was convinced a) that my body would bounce back with being young b) I had to ‘get my body back’ – I won’t be doing the same this time, I’m going to walk my talk and take the 40 days of dedicated healing (the golden month) and a minimum 6 weeks of next to nothing, but gentle walks
  2. Ask for help. There is no shame. Yes you feel like superwoman after birth, any mumma, dad, doula, whoever who has witnessed it would say that women in fact ARE real living superheroes when they birth a miniature watermelon but you still need help and if you convince everyone, including yourself, that you can do it then people don’t offer as much AND you end up falling in a heap at some stage. Soon after or down the track. You do not need to do everything, whilst you think you can, it doesn’t mean you should.
  3. It can wait. The emails, social media, visitors, the pressures of getting back to things, they can actually wait. You just have to be ok with saying ‘no’, which is the start of a great lesson in life if you haven’t already practised it.
  4. Sleep is awesome. Take it at any and every moment you can. I didn’t sleep properly for about 5 years with Jet, I had a long labour (31 hours) which kicked off the exhaustion and then I didn’t really caught up. I’m banking sleep now whilst pregnant and because I’ll be saying no to a lot more when bublet comes, I’m going to tap those micro naps whenever and wherever I can. Park snoozes are awesome FYI – you get Vitamin D, bub gets fresh air, everyone wins.
  5. Everything will unfold just as it should. Jet was an attached bub, he needed to be close, too many (baby) books talk about sleep structures and self settling and he just wasn’t that kid and I thought I was doing something wrong. I wasn’t and he wasn’t either. That was, is, just his personality. Every baby, every person is so unique, they’ll do what they want, you can get caught in the ‘what they should do’ or relax and just ‘do what works for you and bub’.
