  • Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on my page - it's freakin delicious - but no doubt a few of you are wondering if it's 'healthy'. Well healthy firstly isn't restriction and avoiding foods that make you happy, e.g. haloumi, healthy is enjoying good food moderately and mindfully. Haloumi isn't an everyday cheese though 1) we'd probs go broke 2) it's higher in sodium than other cheeses and whilst a moderate level of good quality salt is necessary for our body we don't need to exceed the RDI of sodium by eating salty cheese everyday 3) whilst
  • Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Someone please deliver me the weekend? Had to work all of last weekend sooooooo this hump day feels pretty ready to be a Friday. QUICK TIP for your platter endeavours as the festive season aka most hectic time of year fast approaches... Dips are rad and obvs super easy but they'll look a bit more fun if you pop different ones together in a bowl and spread them about a little, then give them a sprinkle of something. The sprinkles are the best part! Dukkah, sesame seeds, some chopped nuts or herbs, sea salt, ground spices like paprika, coriander, turmeric,
  • All about the fruit in salads at the moment adds
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition All about the fruit in salads at the moment, adds delishhhhh flavour plus quality carbohydrate sources, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fibre - all the good stuff! This is one of my fave chickpea salads made with the obvious ingredient - chickpeas - and crunchy sprouts, celery, herbs and a scrumptious tahini yoghurt dressing. Nuts would be my other favourite ingredient to add into salads to make them a bit more fancy schmancy and to up the quality of nutrition (in an already nutritious meal lol but why hold back?!?!) - WHAT'S YOURS? Ps. This salad keeps really well for a few

SUNDAY MEAL PREP IDEAS

Meal prep is something some of us LOVE about their Sunday and others loathe. For both the lovers and the loathers I’m going to keep popping up ideas up because my role is to support you and make it a bit easier for you to work through different stages of your health, diet and nutrition – meal prep included. Even if you do loathe meal prep, keep at it, it does become more likeable over time, especially when you find simple things that make you happy, lift your energy and health.

This meal prep session was actually a little while ago and I didn’t post it at the time because I was busy getting Brown Paper Eats off the ground, but goodness was I grateful for it.

A few of the ideas and ingredients for you…

  • Quinoa cinnamon pops with dehydrated apples – recipe not exact but…
    •  2 cups quinoa puffs
    • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
      • Heat oven to 160C. Whisk together melted coconut oil, honey, vanilla and cinnamon, then pour over the quinoa puffs and coconut. Spread over large oven tray lined with baking paper and cook for about 10-12 minutes, stirring half way. Store in airtight container. Add fruits or nuts if you wish!
  • Oat and berry bircher muesli – I soak oats with a bit of lemon zest, sultanas, water and a dollop of yoghurt (coconut or oat work well) then pour boiling water over just until they are covered. Mix then soak with a handful of berries. A more accurate recipe by Brittany Darling is here.
  • Raw juices – there are 3 of us in the house so these go fairly quickly !
    • Carrot beetroot celery ginger
    • Carrot orange ginger
    • Green – probably just whatever green leaves, herbs, cucumber, celery and bit of green apple
  • Mexican bean combo to pop into wraps, on top of brown rice or with salad and guac etc – I’ll have to write a recipe for some of the bean mixes I do because they really are yummy and a saviour when you have a spicy, savoury, delicious hankering
  • Quinoa salad with ricotta, roast spanish onion, mint, cucumber, parsley – haven’t recorded this recipe, but another delicious one that is quite similar is Quinoa Avocado Salad recipe here.
  • Roast beetroot
  • Roast carrots
  • “Whatever is in the pantry” energy balls – dried fruits, nuts, seeds, coconut cream, cacao – another great recipe on the blog contributed by Amanda’s Wholesome Kitchen is here for you…
  • Lime juice – which we’ll pop into gummy jellies together in the coming days – gelly gummies are a massive hit in our home – there are quite a few recipes on the blog. 

Will put some more ideas up as we do them in the coming weeks for some of our past MEAL PREP SUNDAYS read these articles.
