    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Did you know… exercise supports GIT (gastro intestinal) health from gut motility to even increasing the diversity of gut micro flora? (Monda, Villano et al 2017) That’s just a start too... There have been a number of recent studies showing the impact exercise has on our gut microbiome. Exercise has such incredible benefits for our mental and cardiovascular health, skin and obviously to support and strengthen our musculo skeletal system too. For me... exercise reduces any stress and anxiety, keeps things moving, shaking and strengthening within, increases my productivity with work, challenges me so that I can overcome other obstacles

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition If you have carrots and chocolate then whack them together to make this scrumptious EASTER BUNNY BREAD (ok it’s more cake like but bread sounds better for this title and I couldn’t find my cake tin thus loaf tin soooooooo...) it’s a fun way to use up the imminent overload of chocolate this weekend whilst actually adding some quality nutrients to a snack. The recipe is below! You can use buckwheat, brown rice or your own blend of gluten free flour in the mix, up to you! ‍ (Side note : the moon looks stunning tonight - is a full

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the weekend? YES. Am I worried about it? NO. Indulgence is healthy and you don't need to be highly restrictive with your food intake or over exercising this week to compensate for the Easter weekend. Just get back to the foundations of a healthy diet - stacks of vegetables, some good quality protein and a nugget of healthy fats to balance your meals. I personally crave the simple things after a yummy weekend of eating with family so this plate of steamed veggies with a basic home made satay (recipe below)

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVES

If you were a fly on the wall in our kitchen today you’d hear the big questions asked like… “What 5 foods would you take to an island if you had to live on them forever?” Our head chef, responded with cheese as her number one, but all cheese captured under that one, not just a single type of cheese of course.

Yep we are answering life impacting questions today ladies and gents!

Cheese amongst our divine grazing boards are just the start of some of our favourite cheese dishes to create. But, if a weekend grazing board is just a little too far away still then have a taste of this delicious NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE SALAD during the week with a portion of protein to accompany.

Nashi are in season throughout the winter and make the perfect crunch in a salad next to the rich flavours of blue cheese. You don’t need much of the blue, but make sure you do include it, as it truly is the hero ingredient of the dish.

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE 

Serves 4 as a side

Gluten Free

2 nashi pears, cored and sliced thin

100g blue cheese, crumbled

1 bunch curly endive

1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped or broken

sea salt and black pepper

Quick pickled red onion:

1 small (140g) red onion, peeled and finely sliced

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 cups water

good pinch sea salt

Dressing:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Make the quick pickled onion by combining apple cider vinegar, water and sea salt in a medium bowl or jar, then add red onion and allow to pickle for 5-10 minutes. Whilst onion is pickling whisk together ingredients for dressing. When ready to serve, drain the onion from the pickling brine, and toss together endive, nashi, onion and dressing in a large bowl. Transfer to serving platter, sprinkle dollops of blue cheese and walnuts around the salad, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve.
