  • Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the weekend? YES. Am I worried about it? NO. Indulgence is healthy and you don't need to be highly restrictive with your food intake or over exercising this week to compensate for the Easter weekend. Just get back to the foundations of a healthy diet - stacks of vegetables, some good quality protein and a nugget of healthy fats to balance your meals. I personally crave the simple things after a yummy weekend of eating with family so this plate of steamed veggies with a basic home made satay (recipe below)

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Did you know… exercise supports GIT (gastro intestinal) health from gut motility to even increasing the diversity of gut micro flora? (Monda, Villano et al 2017) That’s just a start too... There have been a number of recent studies showing the impact exercise has on our gut microbiome. Exercise has such incredible benefits for our mental and cardiovascular health, skin and obviously to support and strengthen our musculo skeletal system too. For me... exercise reduces any stress and anxiety, keeps things moving, shaking and strengthening within, increases my productivity with work, challenges me so that I can overcome other obstacles

    7 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Actually my new favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner? Best combination of sweet, savoury, crunchy and little bit creamy…. Sourdough bread (delish toasted with some olive oil too if you have the time) with scrumptious  @rubyriseredpapaya  slices, feta, mint and a homemade Pinenut and Sunflower Seed Dukkah. We became completely obsessed by papaya when travelling recently, such a nutritious fruit rich in enzymes that support healthy digestion. Can’t get enough of it now - yummmmm. I’ll pop the recipe for you below my friends - love Jacq RUBY RISE RED PAPAYA, FETA AND DUKKAH TOASTS Serves 1 1/2 Ruby Rise Red Papaya,

Jacq GREEN SAUSAGE ROLLS Makes 18 small rolls Vegetarian 1 cup buckwheat 150g frozen spinach, defrosted and drained well 100g frozen peas, defrosted 200g cooked lentils 1/2 cup sunflower seeds 1/2 cup feta 1 clove garlic, peeled 1 cup mixed fresh herbs Sea salt

TEFF GNOCCHI

GF: SF: V

Serves 4 as an entree

 

Teff Flour Mix (500g total)

250g Teff Tribe Ivory Flour

100g brown rice flour

25g potato starch

25g tapioca starch

100g sorghum

3g xanthan gum

1g guar gum

 

Gnocchi:

165g teff flour mix

600g medium sized potatoes

1 egg

25g parmeggiano cheese

Pinch of sea salt

To make the Teff flour mix place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well to combine. Measure out 165g of the flour mix to use for one batch of gnocchi (serves 4). The remaining mixture can be stored in an airtight container and used at a later date.

To make the gnocchi, heat a large saucepan with water and once boiling add in the potatoes. Boil until tender and then remove and allow to cool before peeling. Place the peeled potatoes in a food processor and process to create a smooth puree. If you don’t have a food processor this can be done using a stick blender or by hand using a potato masher. Transfer the puree to a bowl and add in the Teff flour mix and the remaining gnocchi ingredients. Use clean hands to knead the mixture together. If the dough is too sticky add a little more of the Teff flour mix but only one tablespoon at a time. Dust a baking tray lined with a clean, dry tea towel, with teff flour. Cut the dough into four portions and roll each portion on a lightly floured surface to make a 2cm-thick log. Using a floured knife cut the logs into 2cm pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and place on the lined tray. Make sure the gnocchi do not touch each other or they will stick together. Place a large saucepan over a medium high heat and half fill with water. Add a good pinch of salt to the water and bring to the boil. Place batches of the gnocchi into the salted water and cook for 2 minutes. Use a slotted spatula to remove the cooked gnocchi from the saucepan and place on a clean baking tray. Make sure a little of the water is kept in the tray to prevent them from sticking. Top with your choice of serving ideas from below.

Serving ideas: sauteed asparagus, peas, shaved pecorino and a good glug of olive oil;  a rich homemade tomato pasta sauce or a slow cooked lamb ragu
