    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition My waste not want not salad inspo for you this week - what’s a good hashtag for a no waste meal ?  #nowaste  or  #nowastedfood  or shall we create our own????

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER OATS BARS!!! Hello hump day happiness! My gorgeous friend Evie  @genevieve .writes made these for me - they're heavenly delicious, simple and nourishing. Great one for an after school treat or 3pm pick me up, such a good combo of healthy carbohydrates (oats / dates) and plant based proteins (peanut butterrrrrrrr). Peanut butter, all natural, no nasty extras added, has is one of the higher sources of amino acids in the nut butter family. If you team it with a grain like oats you deliver a variety of plant based aminos to the body with a simple sweep. Cool

    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Friday night = red wine and rocky road Oh yeaaaaah, big week and that right there my friends is BALANCE. Have you made rocky road at home before? It's seriously awesome. I make mine with a coconut milk jelly instead of marshmallows (heaps of jelly recipes on the blog just swap out juice for coconut milk or cream and add some vanilla and honey / maple if you wish), then throw in whatever nuts I have on hand and fresh berries are the absolutely bomb in there too. I haven't in this one but please Aussies include STRAWBERRIES! Buy them,
  • Grilled asparagus smoked trout and the mossssstttt delicious hemp mustard
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Grilled asparagus, smoked trout, and the mossssstttt delicious hemp mustard creme! Yum!!! Plenty of essential fatty acids, nourishing proteins and as for the added bonus extras - did you know asparagus is rich in a bioflavonoid call 'rutin' ? Its role is to protect our cells from free radical damage, assist the body's production of collagen, and to strengthen capillaries so it's a wonderful nutrient for the health of our skin! Love knowing this when I'm devouring a yummy meal Would you like this recipe? It’s on the blog now for you! Much love, Jacq

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.
