  • 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
  • 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

    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

    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 

Vegetarian Zucchini Cannelloni

Gathering a few yummy vegetarian dishes together that will bring some wow to the table, well any night really, but in particular leading into the festive season too! I’ve made these delicious vego Zucchini Cannelloni with ricotta and herbs and popped them on the most scrumptious Italian veggie ragu using Macro’s NEW Italian flavoured Textured Vegetable Protein from @woolworths_au. The Macro Italian Textured Veg Protein in this dish is a great meat alternative that is high protein, high iron and high fibre – vegan friendly too! What are some of your favourite meat substitutes?

 

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI CANNELLONI 

Makes 10

Gluten free : Refined Sugar Free : Vegetarian 

1 packet Macro Textured Vegetable Protein ‘Italian Herb’

1x 400g tin chopped tomatoes

2 tablespoons salt reduced tomato paste

6 medium (750g) zucchini

1 egg

375g ricotta

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, plus extra for garnish 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

2 medium (160g) carrots, grated

In a bowl combine Macro Textured Vegetable Protein with 1 cup (250ml) boiling water, stir and set aside to absorb for about 5-8 minutes. Once water is absorbed, heat a frypan on medium heat, add Macro Textured Vegetable Protein, tinned tomatoes and tomato paste, stir and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes. Heat oven to 200C. Slice the zucchini using a vegetable peeler to create ribbons, leaving about 1cm of core in the middle (you can snack on this with some dip whilst you’re waiting for your Cannelloni to cook so they don’t go to waste). Whisk egg in a bowl, add ricotta, garlic, basil and parsley and mix. Pour Italian Textured Vegetable Protein mix into a baking dish, ready to top with cannelloni. Divide zucchini slices into 10 even groups, then on a chopping layer the zucchini slices for one cannelloni along side each other, slightly overlapping so they will hold together. Add 1 heaped tablespoon ricotta mix to the middle of the zucchini, then peel zucchini up, over and continue rolling, keeping quite tight. Place in baking dish on top of the Textured Vegetable Protein Mix and repeat with remainder of ingredients. Cook in oven for 25-30 minutes and serve sprinkled with extra herbs.
