  • This photo shows strength the next photo also shows strength
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition This photo shows strength, the next photo also shows strength. They're strong for different reasons. It's important you see both. Most days I show up give and 250% but if on the next I'm wrecked I know my strongest card is giving myself permission to step back + not have the awful, heavy feeling that I'm not DOING or BEING enough. I don't keep pushing to keep a facade that I can have so much going on and still keep it all together. It's not possible to do so, yet so many of us feel we need to keep pushing
  • Happily eating this brekky every day at the moment super
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Happily eating this brekky every day at the moment... super satisfying, wholesome, flavoursome and a great start in high quality nutrition to kick off the day. Here's what I do... soak quinoa flakes with coconut, prunes, sunflower seeds, macadamias, almonds, cinnamon overnight just with boiling water, then pop it together with whatever seasonal fruits are around but this week we had amazeballs strawberries and I used up the rest of the frozen organic raspberries in the freezer. Served up either with coconut or greek yoghurt, take your pick, obviously the coconut is a bit richer so I don't find I
  • Super fun way to end the week celebrating theiconickids Birthday
    14 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Super fun way to end the week celebrating  @theiconickids  Birthday at the very iconic Luna Park. Stepped into my own kiddie element and had my hair braided too (have been told this morning that it’s “a bit embarrassing Mum ” ... oh ) Was actually blown away at how beautiful Luna Park still is and how they’ve managed to maintain it to so much of its original form. Lovely family time together, thanks for having us  @theiconickids   @theiconicau 
  • Went on a mission this year to create more delicious
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Went on a mission this year to create more delicious curries and whilst it's never going to be mission complete, it's definitely so much further than I had thought it would be - how good is learning right?! Most of my curries have been Indian flavours and dhal which are now becoming super easy because I have a simple method with the spices and then I more or less swap in whatever is in the fridge that week - different veggies, alternate proteins like chickpeas, tofu, lentils, on the weekend I cooked up mung beans and popped them in and

SWEET POTATO AND KALE DHAL

GF:DF:SF:V:VG

This recipe is based on and inspired by that of my wonderful friend Jody Vassallo from her book Beautiful Food.

Serves 4

 

1 1/4 cups split mung beans or red lentils

1 tablespoon finely grated ginger

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

1 teaspoon garam masala, plus extra for sprinkling

1 small dried red chilli

1 bay leaf

6 curry leaves

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 tablespoon coconut oil

100g cherry tomatoes, halved

2 tablespoons ghee

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup chopped roasted sweet potato (Jody uses pumpkin)

100g kale leaves, stalks removed and roughly torn (Jody uses spinach)

basmati rice and lemon wedges ,to serve

 

Put the split mung beans or lentils, ginger, spices, chilli, bay leaf, curry leaves, salt, oil and cherry tomatoes in a large saucecpan, add 3 1/2 cups water and bring to the boil over medium heat.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20minutes, until the beans or lentils are just soft. Don’t overcook them, you don’t want mushy.

Remove pan from heat, stir in ghee, lemon juice, sweet potato or pumpkin pieces, sprinkle with extra garam masala, cover with a lid and allow to stand for 5 minutes.

Serve with basmati rice, lemon wedges and an extra sprinkle of garam masala. I added a few coriander leaves too but that’s up to you!
