    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,

    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)

  • Did you know exercise supports GIT gastro intestinal health from
    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
