  • Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of
    7 days ago by brownpapernutrition Believe I might be avoiding getting back into swing of reality by thinking, writing and doing all the baking of cookies. Living the summer holiday dream I say! Then I thought to myself I think it’s time to consolidate all my cookie recipes and see what new ones I can make this year – and so the avoidance continues… So my lovely friends on the blog are 9 OF THE BEST HEALTHY COOKIE RECIPES for you to get mixing and baking. I’d love your comments below on new flavours and what ingredients or dietary requirements you would like to see

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Baked eggplant, zucchini, tomato and tahini yoghurt with a sweet potato bread, smoked trout, avo and some kimchi on the side. How I love to create, cook and eat.

All gluten and dairy free. All 100% scrumptious. Cook with - hit the  @countryroad  live with us blog - lots of love, Jacq
  • GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY  Aiming this
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition GREEN PEA SPINACH AND MUNG BEAN CURRY : Aiming this year to do a series of recipes that use some ingredients from pantry and freezer only. Quick, easy, super tasty, not a cheat’s variation per se, but no excuses meals because the ingredients are there, ready and waiting for you in the freezer and pantry – you know what I’m saying? For the days you can’t be bothered to go to the shops, or have come from travel (my inspiration moment for this series), or maybe just want to budget your diet more, you know where I am coming from
  • HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR  Its only 200 days in
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition HEALTHY MANGO MACADAMIA BAR : It's only 200 days in a mango season - which seems like a lot, but when it's during the holiday time and all you can think about is mangoes, eating of mangoes and cooking with said mangoes the season seems to go far too quickly would you agree? So I made the most of the above mentioned seeing, eating and cooking with mangoes and whipped up a HEALTHY FROZEN MANGO MACADAMIA BAR. It's a bit of a Weiss Bar imposter... although I think the freshness of the fruit and the fact the white creamy stripey
  • PLANT BASED Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this
    18 hours ago by brownpapernutrition PLANT BASED: Made this scrumptious plant based nourish bowl this week and it's all I want to eat right now again! I used rocket, tomato, zucchini noodles, mint and sprouts as my fresh ingredients and then made all the flavours juicy and delicious with the toppers in my fridge and pantry. If you have some staples there to bring flavour into the meal then you can create deliciousness from the most basic ingredients on hand. My fun little taste boosters included: + kimchi + dukkah + olives + hemp butter - just made using hemp seeds and olive oil much

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.
