    8 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Actually my new favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner? Best combination of sweet, savoury, crunchy and little bit creamy…. Sourdough bread (delish toasted with some olive oil too if you have the time) with scrumptious  @rubyriseredpapaya  slices, feta, mint and a homemade Pinenut and Sunflower Seed Dukkah. We became completely obsessed by papaya when travelling recently, such a nutritious fruit rich in enzymes that support healthy digestion. Can’t get enough of it now - yummmmm. I’ll pop the recipe for you below my friends - love Jacq RUBY RISE RED PAPAYA, FETA AND DUKKAH TOASTS Serves 1 1/2 Ruby Rise Red Papaya,

    4 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

    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)

Real talk : food and I haven’t always had a loving relationship

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 wanted to care the more I withdrew and isolated myself.

I remember at one point being utterly convinced that I could continue this way for the rest of my life, I didn’t think about the consequences. Not on my family, not on my friends, definitely not on my body.

The moment of change? The moment that I made a choice that my mind would not rule me anymore? When my tiny human, Jet, came into my life. I simply, absolutely, could not have him growing up with a mum who didn’t love herself in the way I wanted him to love himself in this life.
I couldn’t have him wondering why mummy wouldn’t eat at certain times, that she would say no to the fun foods and not just live a little.

I needed more than anything for Jet to grow up seeing a healthy mumma before him and in that process of wanting to be the best role model for him, I let go of something that had tormented me for some 15 years and became the best role model for me too.

Everyday, and I am serious, every single day, I give myself a mental hug and pat on the back that I have come this far. Because in the process of doing it for Jet I learnt to find peace in my heart and kindness within myself too.

Don’t ever stop acknowledging just how far you have come my friends, whatever the stage on the journey you’re at, because it is without doubt one of the greatest motivators to keep going.

All my love, Jacq 😚
