  • Ok so you see haloumi pop up a bit on
    1 week 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

    6 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,

THE BEST IS HERE RIGHT NOW

My fave birthday photo and words from the heart…

I realise I’ve mentioned the ole b’day a bit recently, it’s not “everyone let’s gloriously celebrate Jacq ohhh yeaaaa”, rather, I think I’ve been quietly processing something within. I turned 35 this year, and whilst I am not saying by any means that I am old, hell no, but, for the first time in this era of 30’s I feel kinda different.

I’m not sure how to make much sense of it right now, and so maybe I’ll stop trying to and just voice how I feel, maybe that will help me understand it, maybe some of you can relate…

I’ve recently felt a real internal shift, emotional and I think also a biological one too. I feel now more than ever the preciousness of time, because all of a sudden here I am at 35 and it feels like the past 7 years have flown faster than ever? To be honest for a long time I still felt I was 28 (ain’t nothing wrong with FEELING 28 either ha!) and maybe for the first part of my 30’s I was still working through and figuring so much stuff out. But now as I enter 35 I feel like I am about to write a huge new chapter of life you know?

I can’t slow down time, that’s the impossible, but if time flies this fast then what can I be doing right NOW to be most connected to this moment. I feel I’ve been making the most of life, but now my body, my head and my heart are asking what more can I do? This internal shift I guess you could call it, is crazily encouraging me to write my greatest chapter yet. Does that make sense?

So this birthday pic is a special memory for me to start my 35 – walking barefoot, in the middle of Barossa in what was a whole week of new and insane food and wine experiences thanks to my @jacobscreekwine family, I’m wearing a beautiful dress @witcheryfashion and embracing my womanhood, and my lovely man is taking the photo, a photo which he decided he wanted to put me in and somewhat pushed me a little beyond what I might usually feel comfortable doing but in the spirit of making the most of each and every moment I leant into it. 

You know how people say or you see written ‘the best is yet to come’, well, I feel the best is here right now, it really is just what you want to make of it.

Jacq xx
