    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Simple but absolutely friggin all levels of delicious!!!! Had the most amazing delivery from  @napolifoodwines  (not sponsored) who usually supply to restaurants so have it delivered to us was SUCH A TREAT. There was burrata, mozarella, parmigiano, pasta, olive oil, pizza and pasta flour, italian butter, provolone alllll sorts of goodies. So I popped them into an epic meal for us all to graze on. My pasta in the middle is easy and a crowd fave always - I used their kamut spaghetti (Kamut is a beautifully flavoured ancient grain). I'll pop the details for the pasta below so you

  • Created this beautiful Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Nut Butter Frosting
    20 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

    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!
  • AD Hello Monday hello corn fritter taco!!!! New take on
    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.

The morning routine I’m ACTUALLY managing to maintain with a baby…

Mornings can be a bit of a mixed bag with a new baby in your lives but after about 8 weeks I found the groove for my own morning routine irrespective of the night I’ve had with little Elke and to gear myself well for the day with running Jet about to school and sport, managing life with the smallest of bears in the house aka Elke and running my business.

Routine, I certainly believe, with new babies is important. It’s good for them, obviously, but it’s really important for us as parents to have something of a routine for ourselves too. Consistency will help when you are out of whack (read… exhausted) because the habit is there and then you don’t actually have to think about it.

For me this looks like:

  • Rising with 2 glasses of filtered water, followed by tea – I can’t actually function without 1-2 cups of strong tea to start the day. Some do coffee, coffee doesn’t agree with me (the anxiety levels peak very quickly) but tea is absolutely fine.
  • After this I jump on the spin bike and sweat it out or alternatively do a mix of spin / interval training at home. Getting to the gym, despite their reopening, is completely unrealistic for me for the time being due to Elke’s sleep schedule and the needs of Jet, so I’m happy to have the option at home to seriously (and I mean it!) sweat and get my endorphin hit. I do this before the kids are awake because I need this me-time to be a better mother.
  • Following exercise it’s quick shower and a consistent skin care routine (happy to share this if you would like also) then the kids are awake and ready.
  • I get them sorted – breastfeeding Elke at present and Jet is pretty good with helping make his own breakfast etc. then we jump in the car to get to school.
  • When I get home from the school run and get Elke to bed or have her with me depending on how her day has started is when I stop to eat breakfast. I don’t eat it until this time because it’s otherwise completely rushed and not enjoyable or well digested and I’ve reached a point where now I’d prefer not to eat until later rather than rush it and I feel much better for it. I’m hungry by that time too and very ready for the first meal.
  • My food is accompanied by my supplements which include probiotic for breastfeeding, multi-vitamin, algae oil for DHA, and choline. These are driven toward my post natal repletion protocol. Please consult a health care pratitioner to know what supplementation is right for you.
