5 days agoby brownpapernutritionHi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this? Because really we are SO PRIVILEGED to have these

This was my lunch the other day, a mix of our bits and pieces from catering and home which is essentially all a good looking nourish bowl is because it combines different ingredients, drawing vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fats and amino acids from each to create a beautiful and deliciously colourful experience on your bowl and plate. Whilst it’s easy to leave your health behind during this time of year some of the simple principles I encourage you to follow so you can stay more on track are:
– be mindful and present with your food, switch off distractions (except conversation and laughter with those around you of course!) and be grateful for how fortunate we are to nourish our bodies with good food
– try to integrate bitter, sour and fermented foods into your meal so your digestive system has the support to break down food with ease and absorb the nutrients being fed into our body
– fill your plate once – even if for Christmas Day your plate is fuller than normal the once off approach will help you because at least you are aware of just how much you are eating – and that awareness/consciousness/mindfulness however you might like to approach it is our step one!
– finally if you feel unsure, unsettled, or simply a little over cooked by all the festivities then just eat plants. Make your plate or bowl a rainbow of veggies and you can’t go too wrong.
