  • For my little pasta lover  Jet and all the
    5 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

    4 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,

    3 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

Winter warming recipes to keep you in good health

WORDS : Team Brown Paper

Struggling to get out of bed in the winter? Ugh, us too.

Summer poke bowls and jazzy salads not hitting the spot on a chilly winter’s night? We hear ya!

Find yourself reaching for comfort foods on those bleak rainy weekends? You bet ya!

We find when the temperature drops outside, it’s time to really turn up the heat in the kitchen and get those bodies warmed and well fed! 

Check out these delicious recipes packed with antioxidants and immune boosting nutrients to ward off the winter lurgies and keep your health in check. 

PORRIDGE

Winter calls for breakfasts that are warming and grounding, and porridge will tick all the right boxes there. And no…porridge isn’t just for Goldie Locks, especially not when it’s packed with spices such as cinnamon to level blood sugars throughout the day, and ginger to gently warm the body and improve circulation. Try this CARROT SPICE PORRIDGE with gentle flavours of almond milk and a good dose of fibre from oats.

And for those of you who are sick of waiting 20 mins out in the cold to get a table at your fave brunch spot, only to be hit with a $30 bill for a bowl of porridge and a coffee… then get your porridge game on at home by checking out these variations – we love the QUINOA PORRIDGE WITH CARAMELISED BANANA and the BUCKWHEAT PORRIDGE WITH CINNAMON AND VANILLA. Mmmm mmm!

SOUPS

Feeling that sore throat come on? Boyfriend caught the manflu? No better time to get this immune boosting CHICKEN SOUP into you. This recipe is comforting, gentle on the digestive system, incredibly soothing and packed with anti-inflammatory properties to fend off all the nasties. 

If you’re looking for further soup-spiration and want to add some hearty winter soups to your repertoire, then get your paws on this CAULIFLOWER SOUP! Don’t underestimate the burst of flavour provided by a sprinkling of paprika! Or if you’re looking to boost your greens intake have a crack at this WINTER GREENS SOUPS.

PIES

Winter months often make us crave comfort foods. These stodgy foods aren’t great for our energy levels though, and often they make us feel a little timid about stepping out in the spring. Never fear, this CURRIED VEGETABLE PIE satisfies all the right cravings and is packed with curry spice and root vegetables. Whilst you’re at it, keep the oven cranking and bang on this VEGETARIAN COTTAGE PIE – great for midweek dinners.

TREATS

If you’re looking for a little treat that reflects those wintery feels, look no further than a STICKY DATE PUDDING.  This recipe has won a few hearts, and stomachs…over to you now to do the same this weekend!

And when you get asked to bring dessert for the next family get-together, try this HEALTHY PUMPKIN PIE – it sure is a winner! If you’ve never tried pumpkin pie, wow you’re in for a treat (pun intended!).

Finally, for those looking to curl up on the couch around a fireplace with their loved ones, hot water bottle or fur friend, then swap those sugary ho-cho’s you get at the supermarket with this smooth and delicious ALMOND MILK HOT CHOCOLATE.

Time to tuck in – over to you!
