  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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

    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!!!!!

SUPERFOOD SALAD

GF : DF : SF: V : VEGAN

Serves 4 as a substantial salad main

 

6 kale leaves, stalks removed and torn into rough pieces

juice of 1 lemon

pinch sea salt

2 whole beetroot, tops removed and washed

3 cups raw sweet potato, peeled and roughly chopped

1 red capsicum, seeded and roughly chopped

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

1 avocado, diced large

1 cup basil leaves, torn

1 cup flat leaf parsley

2 tablespoons chia seeds

4 teaspoons white sesame seeds

ground black pepper

Optional: walnuts, feta, goat cheese

 

Dressing:

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons mustard seeds

2 teaspoons Bioglan Camu Powder

2 teaspoons Bioglan Acai Berry Powder

 

Preheat oven to 200C and line a baking tray with paper.

Wrap beetroot in foil and place in oven for 45 minutes.

Whilst beetroot is cooking place kale leaves in a large bowl, pour over lemon juice and sprinkle with salt, then using clean hands massage the lemon juice into the kale for approximately 5 minutes, then set aside whilst vegetables are cooking.

Arrange capsicum and sweet potato on baking tray, drizzle with oil then place in oven.

Keep the beetroot in the oven at this time too.

Cook all vegetables for 20minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool approximately 10minutes.

Peel the skin from the beetroot using your hands, trim the ends, then cut beetroot in eighths.

 

 

Remove skin from capsicum pieces (optional).

Combine all ingredients for dressing in a small jar and shake well to ensure Camu and Acai are dissolved in the oil and vinegar.

Arrange kale leaves, roasted vegetables, cherry tomatoes, avocado and herbs between two serving plates, sprinkle with chia and sesame seeds, finish with a drizzle of Camu Acai dressing, a good grind of black pepper and serve.
