  • 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,

  • 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
  • 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!!!!!
  • 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.

WINTER GREENS SOUP

When I first made a greens soup I basically threw in everything green from the fridge in a saucepan with onion, garlic, random herbs stock and the almighty sea salt and black pepper and it worked a treat. And you can 100% do that of course, but if perhaps you don’t have the leftovers on hand and are inspired to boost your green intake (without another green smoothie or juice in your life) then this winter warmer is for you. No need for a long slow cook on your green soup, it’s super quick and just the right booster for these cooler days.
