  • 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.

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!!!!!

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.
