    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition MANGO YOGHURT RICOTTA SLICE... cheesecake thing which I made with a few things in the fridge and inspired by my case of mangoes : ) I made it by whisking together 3/4 cup ricotta, 3/4 cup greek yoghurt, 3 tablespoons honey, 2 free range eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 tablespoons chia seeds, 1 medium very sweet aka brown banana and 2 teaspoons lime zest until all creamy and delicious. Then poured it into a lined loaf tin and popped it in the oven at 180C for about an hour - or until a skewer came out clean and the top

  • TERIYAKI NO MEAT BALL BOWL  of delicious satisfying happiness!
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition TERIYAKI (NO) MEAT BALL BOWL - of delicious, satisfying happiness! Pickled onion are a staple in our fridge. I use an apple cider vinegar base for it and it's literally ready in 20 minutes for whichever meal I like and then keeps in the fridge a few weeks... if it lasts. Best way to pimp up a meal, adds valuable prebiotic fibres and quercetin to the diet and sans raw onion breath too - win! The (no) meatballs are made with quinoa, beans and mushies and absolutely heaven. Make please! Popped the full recipe on  @bodyandsoul_au  beautiful humans. J xo

    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition As you shop for your groceries this weekend, have a think about ingredients you can batch prep (roast, steam, blanch for veggies) and legumes like chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans that can easily be thrown into meals and keep your vegetable and fibre intake topped up. There is absolutely no denying that laying the foundations of your diet with plants is tremendously beneficial for your health on so many levels. There's also no denying that I am a massive believer in delicious condiments in the fridge and pantry to make meals interesting rather than plain and frankly a little boring so
  • Finished my final work submission today a really bloody exciting
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Finished my final work submission today (a really bloody exciting one too!) before I take time out for birth and beyond yassssssssss bebe girl you is welcome to come into the world anytime... but preferably on the weekend when I’ve ticked a few more boxes of the stuff that needs to happen including putting my heavily swollen feet up somehow.

MEXICAN CHUCK STEAK TACOS

GF: DF: SF: PALEO

Serves 4

 

1 kg chuck steak, cut into 5cm dice

2 tablespoons ground cumin

2 tablespoons ground sweet paprika

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons coconut oil

4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced

2 cups beef or vegetable stock

1x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

1 piece orange peel, approx 2x10cm

To serve : Tortilla, avocado, limes and tabasco (optional)

 

In a small bowl mix together cumin, paprika and cinnamon to create a spice rub for the meat. Place chuck steak in a large bowl, sprinkle spice mix through and toss to ensure an even coating over all pieces of meat.

Heat a heavy based casserole dish on medium heat, add 1tablespoon coconut oil and half the meat and brown the meat for approximately 2 minutes, tossing to ensure each side is sealed. Remove from pan and set aside in a separate bowl, then repeat the process with remaining beef.

Once all beef is browned and removed from pan, add the garlic to pan and cook 1 minute, then add stock, tomatoes, and orange peel and reduce heat to low. Add meat to pan, cover with lid and cook 1 hour on low heat, uncover and cook a further 1 hour.

After 2 hours of cooking, pull the meat apart whilst on the stove, so there are no longer diced pieces but shredded beef. Increase heat to medium and cook a further 30-45 minutes to reduce the liquid.

Once meat is cooked set aside to cool slightly before serving. Serve with tortilla, salsa and any other condiments of your preference. We opted for Chickpea Tortilla and Cucumber Apple and Jalapeno Salsa. Recipe below.
