  • I didnt want to share too much of our excitement
    1 week ago by brownpapernutrition I didn’t want to share too much of our excitement for this little person whilst there is so much devastation in our country, but after speaking to a few friends and being reminded that with all darkness we must also have light to look forward to I thought maybe a bit of bump might be ok to share here too. Can’t wait to meet this tiny human... only about 6 weeks to go. Love.  #34weekspregnant   @svendsenfitnesshealth

    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition QUINOA PEACH TOMATO SALAD to make the most of the beautiful seasonal peaches we have in Australia. Peaches contain valuable vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and my fave fibre - making them an easy means of upping your daily intake by integrating them into your diet as snacks and meals too of course! I team this salad with a piece of fresh salmon, barramundi or a juicy big handful of chickpeas or butterbeans - it's scrumptious! I've popped my recipe on the link in comments below for you. Copy and paste to cook and dive in!!! Jacq xo  #plantbased   @eimele_australia   @aussiesummerstonefruit   @countryroad

    2 days ago by brownpapernutrition Lunch date with my monkey and my dad Making the most of a little chats and eating with two hands for the next few weeks! Pretty special to have this time together, although not sure I can do this heat for too much longer, is about 17deg c hotter inside my Buddha body right now... think Jet’s favourite part of my pregnancy has been the arrival of my outie belly button and his obsession with pressing it it feels SO WEIRD but glad it gives him some giggle I guess? ‍♀️ Also a few new preg first time mummas asked

    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition VANILLA PEANUT DATE SLICE...a great intro recipe for anyone who hasn’t dabbled with wholefood treats much before as it’s simple and delicious. It’s also a winner for my pregnant and breastfeeding mums out there for a few reasons too. DATES are a wonderful source of fibre – fuelling beneficial gut bacteria, sustaining energy levels and appetite and supporting gut motility to keep you and your bowels regular. Post partum constipation is a common condition for many women which may result from the effects of pregnancy hormones, haemorrhoids, pain from episiotomy or iron supplementation (there are many non-constipating iron supplements now

    2 weeks ago by brownpapernutrition Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didn’t know what to do with ... I had two options, 1/ eat them straight up, as they delicious 2/ be kind and get my bake on even though temp and humidity feels like 45 deg C today. Option 2 evidently won, the melts didn’t melt and I am not one bit worried about it. I’ve done plenty of melting today for everyone This ALMOND BROWNIE recipe is a quick variation from one I’ve got on the blog and it’s nek level... especially with cheeky chocolate care of the my lil

Mexican quinoa corn sweet potato salad

Friends… It happened I managed to make Mexican WITHOUT CORIANDER!!! This move may well win some friends back into my life!!!!! Coriander is delicious and one of my favourite herbs but let’s face it, this herb is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. And, if I’m to be honest the only reason it didn’t feature here (or mint!) is because I literally had next to nothing left in the fridge to make this. Super grateful to have lots of yum dried herbs and spices on hand always though because I couldn’t live without them and the flavour of them makes a meal go from boring to awesome. See for yourself!

What are your favourite herbs?

MEXICAN QUINOA CORN SWEET POTATO SALAD 

Serves 4

Gluten free : Vegetarian

1 large (520g) sweet potato, cut into 2cm chunks

2 cobs corn, cut into quarters

1 medium (200g) red capsicum, deseeded and cut into chunks

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

150g cherry tomatoes, quartered

1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa

1/4 cup pickled red onion or 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion

1 medium avocado, peeled and sliced

1/2 lemon

Optional to serve: Pickled jalapenos and hemp seeds

sea salt and black pepper

Spiced yoghurt dressing:

1/2 cup natural yoghurt (dairy or coconut as you choose – I used Jalna Biodynamic Organic)

1-2 teaspoons Mexican Spice blend – I used Spice and Co, you can add more to taste

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

few drops of tabasco or to taste

 

Heat oven to 180C, line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Arrange sweet potato, corn and capsicum on tray, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, toss to coat and place in oven to cook for 30 minutes. Whisk together all ingredients for the dressing and spread over the base of a serving platter. Once vegetables are cooked, cut kernels from corn and toss all ingredients together, except the avocado. Arrange half the salad ingredients over the yoghurt dressing on serving platter, followed by half the avocado and repeat. Finish with a sprinkle of jalapenos, hemp seeds, season with sea salt and black pepper, squeeze with lemon juice and serve.
