Paula Duggan Balance Nutrition

  • I’m Paula Duggan and I am a Nutritionist based in Kerry. I specialise in nutrition coaching, weight loss coaching, workplace wellness and I also offer Healthy Eating talks in schools. Although I am based in Dingle I work with most clients online and I travel all over Ireland for Corporate Nutrition.
  • While I am extremely passionate about nutrition, I have a very balanced and relaxed approach to my diet and I most definitely consider myself a foodie.
  • I eat meat, I eat dairy, I eat carbohydrates & as I am not allergic to gluten, I eat that too.
  • There are so many extremes in the world of nutrition, eating healthy simply seems unachievable to most people.
  • I help people piece it all together, I guess you could say I have a no-nonsense approach. No more guilt please!

  • Mediterranean style tomato based chowder @dingleskellighotel! I love a good chowder but this one makes for a great healthier low calorie alternative to regular creamy chowder. It was slightly spicy, full of flavour and actually more like a fish stew, it was a meal in itself! 
This is my take on the recipe ... Serves 4
1 tbsp oil
2 cloves garlic - crushed
1 large onion - diced
1 stick celery - diced
3 medium carrots - diced
2 tins tomatoes - chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried oregano 
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 cup dry white wine
250g white fish
250g salmon or prawns 
2 tbsp parsley - chopped

In a heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic, vegetables, herbs, chilli, tomatoes and wine, and cook uncovered for 10 minutes.

Add 3 cups water, bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer. Mix in fish and simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Ladle tomato fish chowder into bowls and sprinkle with parsley.

  • Brunch ... lunch ... call it what you want ... nomnom! Little tip if you are crap at making poached eggs like me, boil egg for 5 minutes for a soft egg, run it under cold water, de-shell and cut to let yolk run out ... it’s far easier and I actually prefer the texture too ❤️ #somethingfortheweekend #brunch #weekendbrunch
  • HOMEMADE BAKED BEANS & POACHED EGG SPRINKLED WITH A LITTLE BLACK PUDDING ☄️Preheat oven at 200C ⭐️You need an ovenproof casserole dish or alternatively this can all be done on a hob ⭐️Add 2 cans of butter beans ⭐️Add 2 cans of chopped tomatoes ⭐️Add a crushed clove of garlic
⭐️1/2 tsp paprika
⭐️1/2 sage
⭐️Season 💫Bake for 25 minutes 💫Crack in some eggs, cover & bake for another 12 minutes approx (egg is cooked when white is cooked) 💥In the meantime, grill 1 piece of black pudding per person ⭐️Serve up and sprinkle the black pudding over the beans and eggs 💥Black pudding is the best source of Iron (with the exception of liver) and it is really tasty. It packs a punch in terms of flavour so a little goes a long way. This one has a crumbly texture so it works with this dish. I like to show my clients how to use their favorite foods (ie how much to use!) as opposed to imposing restrictions on foods. If you really like black pudding and like to eat it more often I recommend a brand which is much lower in fat and saturated fat.

  • Banana pancakes. Just 2 essential ingredients - banana & eggs! Mash banana & whisk in 2 eggs, add an extra egg white for more protein if you like. I also like to add cinnamon. Fry on a medium sized non-stick pan on medium heat. Top with berries and/or Greek yogurt ... tasty & quick, a winning combination!
  • And the winner for my Nutrition coaching food shopping trip is ... Elizabeth McMahon. Thank you to everyone who entered!!!
  • Falafel salad with quark (or Greek yogurt) - this is a falafel burger recipe but I rolled into little balls instead and I served with a salad instead of a pita. I found this recipe like I find many, I typed easy fast healthy falafel recipe into the google machine!! It’s often that comes up trumps! People ask me a lot for a healthy recipe for this or that but honestly this is a really efficient way to find a healthy recipe for just about anything which is also quick and easy (very important to me!!) #falafel #falafelrecipe #feedfeed #eat #commontable #lifeandthyme #eeeeeats #onmytable #tastemade #forkyeah #yahoofood #buzzfeast #instafeast #onthetable #vscofood #vscocook #beautifulcuisines #heresmyfood  #realsimple #foodporn

  • Great after training or as a night time snack! Milk has been shown to be better than water for hydration after exercising (2016 study); it contains water as well as electrolytes, lactose and protein. Make sure you buy a Cocoa without any added sugar, Cocoa isn’t drinking chocolate!!!

  • One thing I always tell my clients is a treat doesn’t have to be junk food, a treat can be luxury healthy foods. Go buy a fillet steak or prawns or scallops for your Saturday night dinner. I love eating al fresco, it makes me feel like I’m on holidays, prawn pil pil make me feel like I’m in Spain!! My advice is to take pleasure in real food most of the time and junk food occasionally .... #alfresco #seafood #feedfeed #eat #commontable #lifeandthyme #eeeeeats #onmytable #tastemade #forkyeah #yahoofood #buzzfeast #instafeast #onthetable #vscofood #vscocook #beautifulcuisines #heresmyfood  #realsimple #foodporn
