  • VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICEa great intro recipe for anyone who
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICE...a great intro recipe for anyone who hasn’t dabbled with wholefood treats much before as it’s simple and delicious. It’s also a winner for my pregnant and breastfeeding mums out there for a few reasons too. DATES are a wonderful source of fibre – fuelling beneficial gut bacteria, sustaining energy levels and appetite and supporting gut motility to keep you and your bowels regular. Post partum constipation is a common condition for many women which may result from the effects of pregnancy hormones, haemorrhoids, pain from episiotomy or iron supplementation (there are many non-constipating iron supplements now

    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth 
  • QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the beautiful seasonal peaches we have in Australia. Peaches contain valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and my fave fibre - making them an easy means of upping your daily intake by integrating them into your diet as snacks and meals too of course! I team this salad with a piece of fresh salmon, barramundi or a juicy big handful of chickpeas or butterbeans - it's scrumptious! I've popped my recipe on the link in comments below for you. Copy and paste to cook and dive in!!! Jacq xo  #plantbased   @eimele_australia   @aussiesummerstonefruit   @countryroad 

WARM BRUSSELS, EGGPLANT AND SPROUT SALAD

GF : DF : SF : V

Serves 4 

I love warming salads for this time of year when the weather is just a few degrees cooler but you still feel like lighter foods and this warming brussel eggplant and sprouts salad is the solution to that! All your flavour dreams come true with this one, oh my and the ingredients just make me one very happy nutritionist indeed. I’ll be honest the only thing missing is avocado which we didn’t have on hand but you can absolutely add!

Ingredients:

1 large eggplant (600g), cut into cubes

1/4 cup olive oil 

350g Brussel sprouts, halved 

1 cup (220g) Buckwheat

1/2 cup (130g) Chickpea sprouts

1/2 cup (130g) Mung Bean sprouts 

3/4 cup Coriander (½ bunch stalks and leaves)

3-4 spring onions, sliced white part only

100g baby spinach

Dressing:

1 tbsp tamari

1 tbsp sesame oil

½ tbsp maple syrup

½ tbsp apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons finely grated ginger

Sea salt and black pepper

Method:

Preheat oven to 180C, line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper, place eggplant on tray, toss in approximately 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 45-50 minutes until soft and golden. About half way through, place brussels on a separate lined baking tray, toss with remaining olive oil and bake for 30-35 minutes. Place the buckwheat in a small saucepan on the stove with 2 cups water, bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer until water is absorbed and buckwheat is cooked – approximately 10-15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and leave to cool slightly. Combine dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Place buckwheat, chickpea sprouts, mung beans, coriander, spring onion and baby spinach in a large bowl, drizzle over dressing and toss to coat. Arrange half the salad on a large serving plate, with half the eggplant and half the brussels and repeat.
