    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition Did you know… exercise supports GIT (gastro intestinal) health from gut motility to even increasing the diversity of gut micro flora? (Monda, Villano et al 2017) That’s just a start too... There have been a number of recent studies showing the impact exercise has on our gut microbiome. Exercise has such incredible benefits for our mental and cardiovascular health, skin and obviously to support and strengthen our musculo skeletal system too. For me... exercise reduces any stress and anxiety, keeps things moving, shaking and strengthening within, increases my productivity with work, challenges me so that I can overcome other obstacles

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Did I eat lots of chocolate and cheese on the weekend? YES. Am I worried about it? NO. Indulgence is healthy and you don't need to be highly restrictive with your food intake or over exercising this week to compensate for the Easter weekend. Just get back to the foundations of a healthy diet - stacks of vegetables, some good quality protein and a nugget of healthy fats to balance your meals. I personally crave the simple things after a yummy weekend of eating with family so this plate of steamed veggies with a basic home made satay (recipe below)

    8 hours ago by brownpapernutrition Actually my new favourite breakfast, lunch, dinner? Best combination of sweet, savoury, crunchy and little bit creamy…. Sourdough bread (delish toasted with some olive oil too if you have the time) with scrumptious  @rubyriseredpapaya  slices, feta, mint and a homemade Pinenut and Sunflower Seed Dukkah. We became completely obsessed by papaya when travelling recently, such a nutritious fruit rich in enzymes that support healthy digestion. Can’t get enough of it now - yummmmm. I’ll pop the recipe for you below my friends - love Jacq RUBY RISE RED PAPAYA, FETA AND DUKKAH TOASTS Serves 1 1/2 Ruby Rise Red Papaya,

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.
