  • Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like Ok so my brekky isnt this
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like.... Ok so my brekky isn't this today unfortunately, HOWEVER before you pass this off as a fruit salad, I wanted to break down PROTEIN in this meal for you. The common misconception is that we need a big chunky protein source (most identify as eggs, bacon, chicken, fish, beef or protein powder) in order to have 'protein' in a meal. This isn't actually true. Proteins are comprised of essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are those amino acids the body cannot synthesise and need to be obtained from the diet. Plant foods contain essential amino acids,
  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest - which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.
  • RAW LAMINGTONS PLANT BASED  NUT FREE  To be
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!

PUMPKIN AND PECAN ICE CREAM

GLUTEN/DAIRY/SUGAR FREE : VEGETARIAN : VEGAN : PALEO

Makes 1.3 litres

900ml coconut cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup honey
300g cooked mashed pumpkin (cold)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ginger

In a saucepan heat the coconut cream until simmering. Take off the heat and set aside. In a large bowl using a hand blender blend the egg yolks and honey together until light and fluffy. Slowly pour in the hot coconut cream with the blender running to mix well. Make sure the coconut cream isn’t boiling at this point (you don’t want scrambled egg yolks!). Return the mixture to a large saucepan and simmer gently until it thickens slightly to form a custard, covering the back of a wooden spoon. Set aside. In a separate bowl mix the pumpkin mash with the spices together well. Add the pumpkin mash mix to the coconut ‘custard’. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for at least two hours. Pour the mix into an ice cream maker and follow manufacturers instructions (mine took 50 mins with the ice cream paddle). Put the mix into a container, cover and put in freezer.

Caramel sauce:
1 cup medjool dates, pitted
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 tablespoons nut butter/ spread (macadamia or almond are great)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup almond milk
4 tablespoons boiling water

Method for Caramel Sauce:
Blend everything together, adding the boiling water as you go, until very smooth.

Topping:
1 cup pecans, chopped

Method for topping:
Toast pecans in a hot fry pan until golden and take off the heat to cool.

To serve: Leave ice cream on bench for 15 mins or so until it softens. Scoop into bowls or cups. Top with caramel sauce and pecans.
