  • Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like Ok so my brekky isnt this
    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition Diving into Mondayyyyyyy like.... Ok so my brekky isn't this today unfortunately, HOWEVER before you pass this off as a fruit salad, I wanted to break down PROTEIN in this meal for you. The common misconception is that we need a big chunky protein source (most identify as eggs, bacon, chicken, fish, beef or protein powder) in order to have 'protein' in a meal. This isn't actually true. Proteins are comprised of essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are those amino acids the body cannot synthesise and need to be obtained from the diet. Plant foods contain essential amino acids,

  • Our fridge isnt always stocked to the brim in fact
    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Our fridge isn’t always stocked to the brim, in fact quite the opposite, I LOVE to let it run low so I can get creative with what is in there, team the ingredients up with what I have in the pantry and make meals I wouldn’t usually have thought of. However, I probably wouldn’t be able to make as many of those meals without a few key ingredients which make their permanent home in the fridge – check out my fridge team on the blog today and the how’s and why’s of their importance for nutritious meals in our home.
  • RAW LAMINGTONS PLANT BASED  NUT FREE  To be
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition RAW LAMINGTONS (PLANT BASED / NUT FREE) : To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and thennnnn as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form. I've popped the recipe on the blog lovely peeps... link in bio for you! PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!
  • Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition Happy Monday friends!!!! I made this platter for my family yesterday as a starter before a big lunch to celebrate some birthdays and it went down a treat, especially for me as Saturday I spent feeling just outright wretched with zero desire to do anything but rest - which I did and by Sunday morning I was back on top and ready to eat! Amazing that old REST chestnut isn't it? It's amazing how we sometimes resist it but how restorative is it??!?! Back to food... This platter appealed to both the kiddies and adults so if you're planning a

CURRIED VEGETABLE PIE

Clear obsession going on with vegetables, curry and sweet potato (baked, mashed, hashbrowns – I’ll take it whichever way) this winter! Can’t be a bad thing though they all have INSANE properties to support our health and all in one in a pie – oh baby COME AT ME!

Nutrition highlights for this one firing high, check it:

  •  VEGETABLES… where to begin, but if there is one thing to always remember and pass onto others (kids in particular) is that the increase of these wonder plants fuels our body with fibre – soluble and insoluble which aids digestion, improves bowel motions, keeps hunger at bay and can reduce the risk of chronic illness
  • CURRY SPICE – there are a few available – garam masala, curry spice, turmeric, cumin, coriander. You can honestly go with what you have on hand and use these to taste. The beauty of spicing up your meals, particularly over winter when our bodies CRAVE warming foods, is not only the flavour but these culinary spices contain both anti-inflammatory and metabolism enhancing nutrients. Winning!
  • RESISTANT STARCH which is highly available in this pie – lentils and sweet potato being the primary sources. Resistant starch works with the bacteria in our large intestine to convert to short chain fatty acids. These short chain fatty acids support the health of our bowels and work in the blood stream to help reduce cholesterol too.
