  • I havent been so active on social media this week
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I haven’t been so active on social media this week, to be honest I’ve felt really paralysed by what is happening with the fires in our country. I’ve watched, listened, grieved with those affected, it’s so devastating I have felt completely unsure how to communicate about it. I’ve sat in fear. This isn’t just a reflection of what we have done in the past, this dire situation is a look into what our future is if we don’t do, think, be, act more. I’ve felt frightened for those out there in the middle of it, fighting it, beautiful Australian wildlife

  • PEANUT BUTTER STRAWBERRY SLICE RECIPE Id planned for it to
    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition PEANUT BUTTER STRAWBERRY SLICE RECIPE... I'd planned for it to be something else, but I think I went into a PB food coma and it became slice instead Popped a banana in there as part of the sweetener because it looked brown and I was low on coconut sugar but you can swap it and up the coco sugar or maple if you like. I like the banana effect - more fibre and potassium too that way.  @picspeanutbutter  sent me a mega jar the other day  #waytomyheart  and I'm still deciding whether I share it or hide it at the

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition "Feel like I'm going back to square one" I keep hearing myself say in response to people asking how I feel about our bubba. But actually no, i’m not, I have many more lessons than when i started motherhood with Jet almost 10 years ago. So I thought I would share 5 of them with you... 1. TAKE THE TIME YOU NEED. I rushed a lot with Jet. Mostly with healing, I pay the price for it now. I went back to exercise WAY TOO SOON convinced a) my body would bounce back with being young b) I had to

5 hacks for a healthier kids’ party

Most parents would agree that planning a kids’ party with the (inevitable) sugar highs that come with party food and treats is a tad exhausting even before the party starts. So to save you from your next kids’ party headache, dive into these 5 hacks for a healthier kids’ party.

FIND FAMILY FAVES: plan the party WITH your kids when it comes to activities and food. Understand what makes them completely stoked and then be clever in the way you balance the party and health-ify it. If a piñata is on the cards, pop in some cool treats to balance the sweet ones exploding out of it. If your family loves a chocolate cake then make that the hero and leave the extra sugary cupcakes or dense brownies out of the plan. And, if lolly bags to take home are a non-negotiable then top up with some items that maybe aren’t related to food, but still super fun – try packs of cards, cool pencils, mini joke books instead.

ENJOY THE SWEET but be savvy in how you peel it back, so it doesn’t become a sugar rave. Kids actually don’t care if it’s lollypops on a table or watermelon cut and presented with a stick like a lollypop. It’s the novelty that counts for them and they’ll eat whatever is there. Remember that, because in the midst of wanting to make each party epic for your kids, it can be lost. Simple go to treats without the refined sugar hit might include:

SAY HEY TO SAVOURY to balance the sweet. Make it a 2: 1 ratio of savoury to sweet on the table and you’ll have a much happier bunch of kids in your company. Remember you don’t have to be making everything yourself, hunt down good quality party food from your local baker, pizzeria, sushi store to top things up and get some quick, little person loving, savoury action on the food table. Consider these crowd favourites:

            • pizza slices – many great pizza shops will happily make up a large slab of pizza with a simple margherita topping if you order in advance
            • mix of brown and white rice vegetable sushi
            • veggie dip boats
            • mini frittata
            • sweet potato wedges
            • vegetarian sausage rolls
            • lavosh or pita bread chips with (no spice) guacamole

SWAP THE SODAS because there are always better options and Remedy Drinks has just made the healthiest yet with their NEW fermented soda range. Whilst the idea of juice boxes and some sneaky sugar laden soft drinks might be tempting to keep the small peeps happy this party season, rethink your choices for a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER event. Remedy Drinks has just introduced 6 new fermented sodas to the Remedy stable including crowd favourites such as Cola, Lemon Lime and Bitters, Lemonade, Ginger Beer, Oranja and Tepache (pineapple – hello Y.U.M!) which means there is a flavour for everyone big and little alike. What’s the difference between Remedy and the ‘usual’ soft drinks or sodas you ask? Well … Remedy Sodas are made with organic fruit juices brewed with Remedy’s live culture to ferment out all of the sugar before adding all natural ingredients including spices and botanicals. Remedy Drinks are making sodas right, with no sugar, naturally. A healthier, tasty fizzy? Yes please!

RUN THEM RAGGED: Finally, rather than leave the cake til last, sneak it in half way, get the savoury food out and run kids around before parents come to pick up. Tap into all your old favourite party games and tricks you loved growing up and bring them to life again – pin the tail on the donkey (maybe a minion?), three legged or egg and spoon races, tag, tip you name it. A party planned around great games, healthy food and drinks and family faves are fun filled, healthy kids’ parties done right.
