  • WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition WHAT NEW FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE YOU TRYING THIS WEEK TO DIVERSIFY YOUR PLANT BASED NUTRIENT INTAKE? I'm trying something new - JACKFRUIT!!!! Fun!!!! I was given some recently so had to throw it into good ole mexican with delicious spices - smoky paprika, cumin, cori, chilli, and lots of fresh veggies all wrapped up in a taco. Can't imagine life without Mexican food or VEGETABLES. Might need a trip to Mexico to completely immerse myself in the food and flavours and become a taco. Obsessed by veggies and look well I know jackfruit is a fruit, but I think
  • Brekky on repeat at the moment Seriously hits the spot
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Brekky on repeat at the moment. Seriously hits the spot and will surprise you how quick it is... as quick as cooking an omelette cos that’s what it is!!!!! SWEET BANANA OMELETTE (or pancake if you want to reframe it for kids!) with a bit of yogurt and berries over the top! To make it simply: mash 1 banana in a bowl, whisk in 2 free range eggs, dash of vanilla and whisk until creamy and not too lumpy. Then cook it in a greased frypan, on a medium heat until you see the sides looked mostly cooked but the

  • A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition A little muffin delivery this morning to the Wayside Chapel Community in Bondi Beach. A few years ago I set up a roster which I named "THE MUFFIN PROJECT" and each week either myself, a friend, family or someone from my community helped bake muffins and deliver them to Wayside in Potts Point or Bondi for their community to enjoy. Wayside has been around for decades, supporting those in our community who perhaps do not have a home, have experienced domestic violence, grief, loss and the list goes on. Their cafes serve these beautiful people and when I offered to

Tips for nourishing kids and building healthy meals

A rainbow plate for the miniature people and a few tips for nourishing your small ones:

  • Offer a variety of foods, even if they don’t want to eat the variety (yet, OR so they say…..), we have to work on exposing kids to different foods in order for them to learn and one day pick it up and try
  • Go for a balance of protein carbs and fats with each meal. It’s easy to lapse into carb heavy meals and finish it with a big dose of dairy to fill kids up but the balance of macronutrients (PROTEIN, CARBS, FATS) will help them thrive
  • Let kids play with their food – after all play is what being a kid is all about! Touch, feel, taste, maybe squirm their little faces up with new flavours but it’s all playful, beneficial and healthy to do so. Sure food might move across the room from time to time, but don’t sweat the small stuff, focus on making food fun.

This is a little rainbow plate with a fun, nutritious balance of protein carbs and fats, plus some snacks on the side for later.

Carbohydrates:  a variety of carbs sourced from whole grains (quinoa rice pasta), vegetables (zucchini, tomato, cucumber) and fruits (apricots, strawberries, apple) and some bonus little Currants just to sweeten the deal (kids love little bursts of flavour)

Protein :  omelette, sprouts, hummus and a variety of proteins contributed to the meal by the plant based ingredients on the plate too

Fats: grated cheese, olives and the butter or olive oil as you wish, to cook it in

You  can build up to more ingredients as you go with kids but give their meals some creativity, work with different ingredients, enjoy locally grown produce like our Australian Currants and watch their little minds and growing bodies flourish.
