    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition MUSHROOM PIZZAS = SCRUMPTIOUS, took about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes in the oven, plus if you have left overs (unlikely as too yummy) you could chop them up and whack them into a pasta mmmm mmmmmm. Simple steps below for you and if you tune into my insta-stories and on the COOKING highlights reel thing I am doing heaps of kitchen how-tos for you. (Think it's my way of blogging right now as I haven't been doing much of that otherwise, other things happening - wont' be forever though!) MUSHROOMS PIZZAS 12 flat mushrooms, stalks removed 1/4 cup

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can
  • Little reminder for you Remember that protein comes via many
    17 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Little reminder for you. Remember that protein comes via many different foods so if you hear us nutrition folk banging on about protein for breakfast we don’t expect or want you to get up and eat steak, bacon and eggs for brekky everyday. Mix up the variety of proteins in your diet. Why some protein in the morning? It helps stabilise both your appetite and energy levels to start the day, and of course by including it in any meal, so if we have an opportunity to positively impact our energy then why wouldn’t we?

PUMPKIN BUTTER BEAN SALAD WITH CHIMICHURRI DRESSING 

GF : SF : V
Serves 6 as a side

This is my favourite combination at the moment. Grounding elements of pumpkin, butter beans with good plant based amino acids, a touch of yoghurty creaminess (also adds up on the protein count in a vegetarian meal) and the most delicious green chimichurri dressing. It’s worth roasting up that extra bit of pumpkin next time you are making a roast or something of that nature just to have it on hand for this recipe. Feel free to play around with the combos of herbs for the chimichurri dressing too.

Ingredients:

500g jap pumpkin, peeled and cut into chunks

1 small (100g) spanish onion, cut into quarters

4 tablespoons olive oil

400g tin butter beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup greek or natural yoghurt (full fat)

1/2 bunch parsley leaves picked

2 tablespoons pepitas

2 tablespoons walnuts

Sea salt and black pepper

Chimichurri dressing:

1 cup parsley leaves

1 cup mint leaves

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

pinch chilli flakes

1 clove garlic (optional)

Method:

Preheat oven to 200C, line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper, place pumpkin and spanish onion quarters on tray, toss with olive oil, then bake for 35-40 minutes. While veggies are baking make the chimmichurri dressing by placing all ingredients in a food processor or blender and blitz to combine. Once veggies are cooked, allow to cool, then toss with butter beans, parsley, pepitas, walnuts and season with sea salt and black pepper. Spoon half onto serving platter, dollop half the yoghurt and half the chimmichurri dressing, then repeat and serve.
