    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

    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

    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 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 

My top tips on The Today Show for a Spring clean of your diet

SPOILER ALERT : it does not involved crash / fad / trendy diets!!!!! Ever. It DOES however involve understanding your food choices better and learning to move through habits which have sat with you a while and don’t serve you or your health.

So, when asked “what do people do when they want to lose weight in the lead up to summer?” I am straight to the point and that is:

  1. Don’t be jumping on the latest fad diet. This will only produce a short term change but potentially have longer term affects on your relationship with food and your body because ultimately with fad diets the weight comes back on anyway.
  2. Rather than a fad diet for weight loss, use this time – spring – to look at and reset habits with your health which will be more sustainable for weight loss and longer lasting – THAT’S the best result.
  3. You can achieve weight loss and keep it off long term by simple changes (not fad/excessive/restrictive ones!) which reinforce better habits in your diet such as :
    • reducing alcohol intake
    • looking at the refined and processed foods in your diet, and swapping those out for incredibly nourishing and delicious whole foods – fruits, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes and wholegrains
    • understanding when you might be using food as a support whether it be emotional or reward based eating – so for example, I’ve worked this hard or I’ve been so healthy, therefore I “deserve” this chocolate bar. So aiming to reframe the mindset you have with food which is often what causes a lot of people to gain weight and then struggle to shift it.
