  • CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH Thought I
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition CAJUN TOFU SCRAMBLE BOWL WITH SWEET POTATO HASH... Thought I would miss soft cheese, mussels and prawns the most during pregnancy, turns out I miss sprouts and juicy rockmelon more! Go figure?!?!?!?! Maybe because over the past couple of years we've transitioned our diet so much more toward plants that the shellfish and cheese factor just isn't much a thing anymore, but humble ingredients that I probably didn't recognise were as present as they were are the ones I am hanging to be able to throw into meals again! This is a delicious scrambled cajun tofu bowl with sweet potato,
  • This year Ive had this absolutely wonderful human wholefoodhealing in
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition This year I’ve had this absolutely wonderful human  @wholefoodhealing  in my life through our work together and I couldn’t feel more grateful or more aligned with someone in this space. She’s incredibly intelligent, highly motivated, compassionate and kind, with a similar zero bs approach to nutrition, health, parenting and life. We met studying nutrition almost 9/10 years ago (how on earth was it that long?!?!) and I remember thinking what a bright light she was st the time too. This year we created a series of successful, educational workshops with more to come in 2020 and we are in the
  • I cant even begin to describe how many Black Friday
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I can’t even begin to describe how many Black Friday Sales ads have landed in my inbox, social streams and around the city today and it got me thinking about how we as a society consume. I am not about to get on my soap box here but I do feel the urge to drop these thoughts ... rather than consume so many material things and buy up this Friday have a think about how you can consume in ways that will make you feel greater for longer. Consume KNOWLEDGE, consume the ARTS, consume REST, consume BELLY LAUGHS with buddies,
  • One of my favourite breakfasts  SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition One of my favourite breakfasts - SWEET PEAR AND COCONUT QUINOA, CARAMEL NUT BUTTER AND FRESH PEARS on top for the yummy crunch factor. Kicking the day off with a fibre fuelled, nutrient dense brekky like this one sets you up for the day with good energy, helps to stabilise your appetite throughout thanks to the presence of both soluble and insoluble fibre, plant protein and healthy fats, and is easily digested. The brekky is a cracking way to help feed all the wonderful good bacteria in the gut and keep things moving down there too! If you’d like the

Second Pour Christmas Tea Cake

My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!!
 
First the title – second pour tea – comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don’t have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a slab of it for breakfast every day in December (that’ll prob be me…) and not feel sunk. I’ve taken out the heavy butter and sugar component, and obv the brandy, from traditional Christmas cake, replaced it with other ingredients and if I may say so myself it tastes bangin.
 
Finally!!! Well, not really but for now, if you find yourself a few days before Christmas doing a bit of a S*$% f#*$ S*$% because you’re in charge of making the dessert cake and you haven’t then you can have this baby done in no time and still impress errrrrryone.
SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE
Serves 8-10
Dairy Free : Vegetarian (Opt – gluten free)
350g mixed dried fruit (I don’t use glace cherries mixes, but if you like them go right ahead)
350ml black tea
1 egg
 1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup cranberries
3/4 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon orange zest
285g wholemeal spelt flour (swap for gluten free flour if GF preferred)
Soak mixed dried fruit in black tea for 6 hours. Once fruit is soaked, and you’re ready to get baking, heat the oven to 170C and line a round 22cm cake tin with greaseproof paper. Whisk together egg and coconut sugar in a bowl add fruit with the tea remaining from soaking, cranberries, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, mixed spice, lemon and orange zest and mix. Fold through flour and mix again. Pour into tin, pop into the the oven and bake for 70 minutes. Cool completely in tin, slice and enjoy!
+ Due to the nature of this cake being without sugar and brandy it won’t keep for months as usual Christmas cakes do – best eaten within a week, store in the fridge after about 4 days on the bench.
