  • 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
  • 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!!!!!
  • 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.

  • 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,

RAW CARAMEL ALMOND SLICE

GF:DF:SF:V:VG:PALEO

 

Serves 20

 

BASE:

½ cup walnuts

¼ cup almonds

½ cup medjool dates, seeds removed (approx 5 dates)

2tbsp coconut oil, melted

3tbsp raw cacao powder

1tbsp linseeds

1tbsp chia seeds

2tbsp rice malt syrup

 

CARAMEL:

¼ cup almond butter

2tbsp tahini

2tbsp rice malt syrup

¼ cup dates, seeds removed (approx 3 dates)

2tsp vanilla

1tsp maca powder

¾ cup chopped almonds

 

TOP:

3tbsp coconut oil

3tbsp rice malt syrup

3tbsp raw cacao powder

 

Combine all base ingredients in food processor and blitz to combine into a crumb, or if you prefer a smoother base, until a paste is formed. If you need to loosen the ingredients to assist with blending, add a touch of water. Line a square cake tin (20cmx20cm) or loaf tin with baking paper, then evenly spread base into tin and place in freezer whilst preparing caramel and topping. Place all ingredients, except chopped almonds, in food processor and blitz until smooth caramel is formed. Spread over the base and top with ½ the chopped almonds, then place back in the freezer once again. To finish the slice, make the chocolate, by heating a small saucepan on the stove on low heat and melting coconut oil. Once oil is melted, remove from heat and add rice syrup and cacao powder, whisking well to create a smooth melted chocolate. Pour molten chocolate over the slice and spread evenly then top with remaining chopped almonds. Return slice to freezer and allow to set for approximately 4-6 hours. Serve from and store in the freezer up to 2 weeks.

 

+Nutrition Tip: given the richness of this slice, I would suggest just eating a small portion to satisfy your sweet tooth. I have recommended 20 serves from the slice. Remember, just because they are raw treats, it doesn’t mean we need to overeat and lose the nutrition we gain from other foods in our diet to create BALANCE.
