Roasted a combo of pumpkin, capsicum, eggplant, zucchini and carrot, then added the home made teriyaki sauce - recipe below - and popped back in oven to caramelise it (kinda - not sure of clever cooking word!) for about ten minutes.

    4 days ago by brownpapernutrition BAKED ZUCCHINI CRISPY CHICKPEAS HUMMUS HERBS AND DUKKAH : Legit lived on this number for about 4 days recently. It absolutely saved me on the days of mania with homeschool and baby. Enjoyed as it was, with some extra seeds snaps or a piece of sourdough some days and others with (pre) boiled eggs too. Delicious way to pack plenty of greens, fibre, plant protein and healthy fats into one. Recipe now up on the blog! Happy Sunday y'all! Jacq  #plantbasedrecipes 
  • Im a big believer that food can be your medicine
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition I’m a big believer that food can be your medicine and that foods such as these are vital to support your health at this time. Those foods rich in Vitamin C, zinc, beta glucans, Vitamin D and other immune boosting nutrients. However, sometimes it can be tricky to pack it all in, which is why I have teamed up with  @melrosehealth  to talk about what we can do to boost our nutrient intake in the body and have our immune system firing for the cooler months ahead of us. Incorporating a powdered Vitamin C with all of the above nutrients

Za’tar broccoli avocado beans and green apple

Shepard avocado season is here and as you can imagine when they’re in abundance, they’re featuring in a whole stack of recipes and meals over here at Brown Paper Nutrition.

Avocados smash through the roof (see what I did there… avo smash… moving on…) when it comes to nutrition. Their unique combo of vitamins and minerals keep your immune system top notch, can boost your energy, enhance brain power, build bone strength, aid gut health, stabilise mood and one of my personal favourites – help create a beautiful glow in your skin.

Whilst Shepard Avos are yummoooooooo as is with lemon, salt and pepper or on top of toast or crackers, I’m loving them with baked veggies like broccoli and a kick of za’tar spice, which is exactly what inspired this recipe!

It’s delicious as is, or with an added grain such as brown rice tossed through or a slice of bread on the side, but we personally enjoyed it with some tinned tuna as a quick Monday night meal. Hope you love it too!
