It forces me into a creative space that absolutely LOVE and ensures there is zero food waste in our home. This ZUCCHINI PINENUT BASIL PARMESAN PASTA comes thanks to afore mentioned (bit bendy) zucchini and other random bits I found in the fridge : +leftover roasted spanish onion + leftover marinated kale (olive oil kale and sea salt) + some lemon zest from a lemon I’d squeezed into my water. + a few pinenuts left which I toasted in the

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition Totally logical that the first celebration to follow Mother’s Day is INTERNATIONAL HUMMUS DAY personally I loooooove a hummus party, can easily turn a simple veggie plate into something super juicy I also often encourage clients to have hummus and veggie sticks as an afternoon snack. The combo is a great source of fibre, plant based protein, energy sustaining carbohydrates, calcium and healthy fats from tahini. This hummus party though - roasted broccoli, Spanish onion, cauliflower, sweet potato, coriander, dukkah, cherry tomatoes, hummus of course and totally more-ish turmeric chilli honey walnuts almonds and sunflower seeds - swipe over to

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!
