    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
  • 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 
  • Mum sent me home with some chocolate melts she didnt
    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

Second Pour Christmas Tea Cake

My friends I have managed with huge willpower to stave off sharing this until December 1st so as to not completely bore you with my obsession with Christmas cake, but now the day is here and I am suuuuuuuuuuper bloody excited!!!!
 
First the title – second pour tea – comes from my need to recycle the tea leaves in my tea pot in the morning for something else. You don’t have to do this, just make enough tea for the recipe. Next the beauty of this juicy number is that you can legit have a slab of it for breakfast every day in December (that’ll prob be me…) and not feel sunk. I’ve taken out the heavy butter and sugar component, and obv the brandy, from traditional Christmas cake, replaced it with other ingredients and if I may say so myself it tastes bangin.
 
Finally!!! Well, not really but for now, if you find yourself a few days before Christmas doing a bit of a S*$% f#*$ S*$% because you’re in charge of making the dessert cake and you haven’t then you can have this baby done in no time and still impress errrrrryone.
SECOND POUR TEA CHRISTMAS CAKE
Serves 8-10
Dairy Free : Vegetarian (Opt – gluten free)
350g mixed dried fruit (I don’t use glace cherries mixes, but if you like them go right ahead)
350ml black tea
1 egg
 1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup cranberries
3/4 cup walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon orange zest
285g wholemeal spelt flour (swap for gluten free flour if GF preferred)
Soak mixed dried fruit in black tea for 6 hours. Once fruit is soaked, and you’re ready to get baking, heat the oven to 170C and line a round 22cm cake tin with greaseproof paper. Whisk together egg and coconut sugar in a bowl add fruit with the tea remaining from soaking, cranberries, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, mixed spice, lemon and orange zest and mix. Fold through flour and mix again. Pour into tin, pop into the the oven and bake for 70 minutes. Cool completely in tin, slice and enjoy!
+ Due to the nature of this cake being without sugar and brandy it won’t keep for months as usual Christmas cakes do – best eaten within a week, store in the fridge after about 4 days on the bench.
