  • BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS I think like all parents
    6 days ago by brownpapernutrition BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS... I think like all parents I’m constantly searching for new, delicious and nourishing treats to pop in the school (and my...) lunchbox and these BERRY BANANA CRUMBLE MUESLI BARS totally hit the spot. They’re a great source of protein with both eggs and quinoa flakes in the mix, the yummiest balance of sweet from fruits and some honey or maple, and rich in fibre and healthy fats from a mix of seeds, coconut flakes and olive oil. I’ve popped some options for ingredient swaps in the recipe if you don’t have these on hand too.

    1 day ago by brownpapernutrition I often share Jet’s lunchbox on my stories and get such amazing feedback and thanks from parents so if you need inspiration (don’t we all?!?!?) then have a look on my stories reel under LUNCHBOX. This was Jet’s lunchbox today - simple ingredients made delicious and abundant in quality nutrition to keep up with his growing body and insatiable lil dude appetite! I aim to get veggies in at recess, lunch and crunch and sip, the majority of Australian children don’t eat the recommend intake of vegetables, so incorporating them in just small doses is a great way of conquering

WINTER STAPLE : CAULIFLOWER SOUP

This here is the base soup for the cold months to come. The master cauliflower soup can completely change flavour from one bowl to the next based on the spices, toppings, additional proteins or vegetables added to it.

Cauliflower is one of the more diverse vegetables in the cruciferous family (other members include kale, collards, radish, turnips, arugula, broccoli, watercress, brussel sprouts, wasabi, bok choy, cabbages and daikon), it’s deliciously creamy and not dissimilar to the taste or texture of potato when in a soup such as this.

However it has mountains more nutrition than potatoes. Primarily, it contains compounds known as GLUCOSINOLATES. When we eat foods containing glucosinolates, they break down to smaller compounds, which our bodies LOVE to use in a protective fight mode. These smaller compounds have been shown to have:
+ Antibacterial and antiviral properties
+ Anti-inflammatory effects
+ A role in deactivating carcinogens
+ A role in protecting cells from DNA damage
+ Promoting effects in both phases (P1 and P2) of liver detoxification pathways

Enough to sell you into cauliflower soup for the winter? Now have a look at some of the options for toppings and then you’re off to cook your first batch. Eat some, freeze some and top diversely each time.

Try…
+ toasted corn and smoky paprika
+ shredded blanched kale and herbs
+ poached shredded chicken, chilli and coriander
+ chickpeas, cumin, chilli, ginger and mint

Now time to you get your hands in the kitchen…
