    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition This was my plane food the other day. Maybe it’s a bit nerdy to pack a lunch box and raw snacks, but I can’t bear the thought of being caught out at the airport, on the plane or touching down and being hungry, sooooo I go prepared. Plane and airport food has come a long way yes but it ain’t gonna change to uber healthy for, well, ever most likely so if being a health nerd is my only option then I am totally down with that. Plus food, and certainly a grown woman with a byo lunch box on

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition For my little pasta lover - Jet and all the pasta lovers in my life aka basically everyone. This RAINBOW PASTA is too easy not to make, and the lovely quinoa rice (gluten free) rainbow pasta shapes make it all the lovelier. Beautifully balanced in macronutrients and flavour, and ace because whilst you can eat it hot it’s also absolutely yummo as a pasta salad served cold. Been a feature in lunchboxes for us too, as a change to sambos and other more picky / small food type items. HOW PRETTY IS IT THOUGH? recipe just below for you, can

    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition MUSHROOM PIZZAS = SCRUMPTIOUS, took about 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes in the oven, plus if you have left overs (unlikely as too yummy) you could chop them up and whack them into a pasta mmmm mmmmmm. Simple steps below for you and if you tune into my insta-stories and on the COOKING highlights reel thing I am doing heaps of kitchen how-tos for you.

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE : I’d say treat yoself cos it's Tuesday but you don't really need to save a weekday treat for a Tuesday or wait until the weekend to blow out your healthy eating for the week either. Eat intuitively my lovely friends. Listen to your body, when you feel like something e.g treat, ice cream, chocolate, eat and enjoy it mindfully instead of starving yourself of x and then overdoing/bingeing on it when you finally give in. I have lots of different treats in our fridge and freezer, I don't feel tempted to eat them all the time,

VIDEO : LEARNING THE CORRECT SQUAT TECHNIQUE

Being all for trying new things, I had the opportunity to experience InPuls Studios recently which I’d say is a training technique that will completely take you out of your comfort zone. See more about InPuls here… However just as when you are a child you should crawl before you walk, I know as an adult too, launching into a new style of training it’s important to revisit the basics before you push beyond the cushy zone. So that we did with working through a basic squat movement.

Why the squat? Why not the lunge, the push up, or the burpee? Well, to be frank I have super lazy glutes. A few reasons – labral tears through both hips from a combination of childbirth and running means that my hips and quads try to take the load and my glutes switch off really easily. Squatting for me for many years before my labral tears really flared up was a lot of leg work instead of activating glutes. Now that I know what I need to do, whenever I train I fire up the glutes first or if I walk into a new training technique like InPuls I ensure I work through this essential squat pattern so my body is moving right.

Plenty of individuals have this same issue with their glutes, and sitting down most of the day doesn’t help either! Hopefully this short video will help you understand the importance of good squat technique and how to improve your squat. The first segment gives you insight into what BAD squat technique looks like before we work through the CORRECT squat technique.

Big thanks to Christoph at InPuls for his expertise and training. Stay tuned for next video which takes you through the EMS machine and a session!
