    1 hour ago by brownpapernutrition VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICE...a great intro recipe for anyone who hasn’t dabbled with wholefood treats much before as it’s simple and delicious. It’s also a winner for my pregnant and breastfeeding mums out there for a few reasons too. DATES are a wonderful source of fibre – fuelling beneficial gut bacteria, sustaining energy levels and appetite and supporting gut motility to keep you and your bowels regular. Post partum constipation is a common condition for many women which may result from the effects of pregnancy hormones, haemorrhoids, pain from episiotomy or iron supplementation (there are many non-constipating iron supplements now
  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth 
  • Hi friends please excuse my radio silence as weve launched
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Hi friends, please excuse my radio silence as we've launched into 2020 I had a little break from social media to refresh and have honestly just felt a bit speechless with the bush fire devastation in our country so haven't been posting, rather I've quietly plugged away with $ donations to different charities, donated supplies to any of the collections possible and have been supporting those close to us, in particular my family, caught in the fires. My aunty has had to evacuate her home, it's situated right in the middle of the two southern fires, as a family we

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil
  • QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the beautiful seasonal peaches we have in Australia. Peaches contain valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and my fave fibre - making them an easy means of upping your daily intake by integrating them into your diet as snacks and meals too of course! I team this salad with a piece of fresh salmon, barramundi or a juicy big handful of chickpeas or butterbeans - it's scrumptious! I've popped my recipe on the link in comments below for you. Copy and paste to cook and dive in!!! Jacq xo  #plantbased   @eimele_australia   @aussiesummerstonefruit   @countryroad 

Vegan mushroom pineapple stir fry

Juicy sweet but savoury and a little bit spicy – Mushroom Pineapple Stir Fry – inspired by our travels to Sri Lanka (and more of these recipes coming too…). On one evening we had the pleasure of doing a Ayurvedic/vegan cooking class in a 185 year old kitchen with Chef Shan in Weligama. Thanks to some local insights we stumbled across this experience which was only a few hundred metres from where we were staying and were absolutely blown away from the minute we walked in just to book.

Shan greeted us with the most insanely delicious banana blossom smoothie made with fresh coconut milk, banana, cinnamon, jungle flowers and coconut honey (nectar) and showed us around his 185 year old home, once lived in by his great grandparents including the kitchen. The atmosphere was beautiful, the home traditionally decorated and we were utterly convinced we had to return that evening to learn his craft.

We surfed the day and returned to Shan in the evening and he took us through the traditional cooking methods of his dishes – all vegan, gluten free and using the Ayurvedic principles. One of the dishes was this mushroom and pineapple stir fry, which then was accompanied by rice, dhal and a scrumptious sweet potato coconut salad.

I’ve varied the dish only ever so slightly, based on the set up in my own kitchen. Shan had a historic stove top, where after he’d cooked the mushrooms and pineapple together in the pan, he then spooned them back into the pineapple casing and popped it on top the burner to caramelise further. I don’t have that set up so I kept it simple and served it with rice and a big handful of (precooked) moong dhal for my protein source. You’re welcome to add whichever protein works for you, add it in during cooking or quickly at the end if it’s already cooked.

MUSHROOM PINEAPPLE STIR FRY

Serves 2

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 18 minutes

3 tablespoons coconut oil

1 small red onion, peeled and roughly chopped

4 cloves garlic, peeled and roughly chopped

1 teaspoon garam masala

1/4 teaspoon white pepper

1 green capsicum, seeded and diced

150g oyster mushrooms, sliced

1 small pineapple, cored and diced into 2 cm pieces

1 lime, cut in quarters

To serve: brown or basmati rice, cooked lentils/dhal or mung beans

Heat a large frypan on medium heat, add coconut oil, onion and garlic, garam masala and white pepper and cook for 4 minutes.

Add green capsicum and mushrooms and cook a further 3 minutes, then add pineapple and cook a further 10 minutes. The juices from the pineapple should start to simmer into the ingredients in the pan making it sweet and aromatic.

Once cooked serve with lime, brown rice and extra beans if desired.
