    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition  #AD  Hello Monday, hello corn fritter taco!!!! New take on a juicy fave, just to mix up your Mexi feasting and making it meat free this Monday too. I simply grabbed a bag of the Macro Organic Frozen Corn Kernels and whipped the fritters together with red onion, capsicum, gluten free flour, milk , eggs and cori. Naturally served it up with a delicious tomato salsa tossed with thinly sliced baby spinach as a flavoursome change for lettuce, guac and all served in a gluten free tortilla too! Grab all the ingredients at  @woolworths_au  and make this asap my friends.

    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition We're having a week without sandwiches in lunchboxes so I've popped what Jet will be (likely...we'll see how my baby brain goes come Thursday ha!) eating each day up on the blog. This was Monday - leftover schnitzel from Sunday night dinner (we had both chicken as the boys love it and cauliflower for me) with salad including cucumber and avocado. Recess - mandarin, lemon and honey jellies and capsicum. Also if you haven't done cauliflower schnitzel for your families yet it really is a must - kids in particular love it!

  • Created this beautiful Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Nut Butter Frosting
    21 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Created this beautiful Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Nut Butter Frosting not long ago and I think it might be time to get it cranking for my dad or sister's upcoming birthday... out of control delicious - definitely hitting the recommended daily serve of nuts too! Did you know the recommendations is a mere 30g of nuts which is about a small handful but only a minority hit that target? Pack a small container which will last you for 2 days in your bag / back pack / car wherever and enjoy them as a healthy, hunger crunching, fibrous, essential fatty

SPROUTY CHICKPEA SALAD WITH TAHINI YOGHURT

A bit like a waldorf salad but with a seriously nutritious punch! Loving my throw this in and throw that in, create with whatever is on hand salads that are rocking lunch break at the moment!

Chickpeas and sprouts are the hero in this salad. You might be seeing a few sprouts pop up in the recipes at the moment:

a) because they’re on hand and if it’s on hand it’s going in! and

b) because these tiny sprouts are rich in ‘proteolytic enzymes’

Proteolytic enzymes help digest protein and carbohydrates so they are highly valuable to us in the diet, and win win win one of the richest sources is SPROUTS!

I’ve used mung and alfalfa here, if honestly I had a bit more time I would try to sprout my own chickpeas too, but use what is on hand and easy for you to bring this beauty together. Playing with broccoli sprouts is on my list next.

You can eat as is because there are lovely sources of plant based proteins in this salad or team it up with a piece of protein of your choice.

Enjoy wonderful humans… J x
