Jacqueline Alwill is a qualified, practicing nutritionist, whole foods cook and most importantly mother to Jet. She is passionately committed to improving the health, wellbeing and happiness of all individuals.

Jacqueline has established herself as a leading nutritionist, health writer and presenter, with an in-demand nutrition practice and wholefoods catering company, The Brown Paper Bag. Jacqueline’s philosophy in health lays the foundations for the experience clients and the community have in her practice, workshops and the food they cook and taste. “At the heart of The Brown Paper Bag is sharing good health with those around you. Giving people an experience in food, health and wellness that makes them feel excited, empowered and happy to start and continue a journey to optimal health”.

The Brown Paper Bag was born from a very simple concept when Jacqueline was young. With an early love affair for food, Jacqueline found her family couldn’t keep up with her cooking ventures, so she would bundle little treats up in a brown paper bag and share them with her friends and neighbours. This concept is what brought The Brown Paper Bag to life, and to its strength today. Making delicious, wholesome food, enriched with wonderful nutrition and sharing the experience with those around you. “When you have a taste of just how good healthy is, really, there’s no reason to look back. A good diet and healthy food, doesn’t have to ever be boring or complex, it’s a space to find your creativity, learn and share a truly incredible experience in food and health.”

Today, Jacqueline and her team in The Brown Paper Bag kitchen create nourishing wholefoods and recipes in catering for events (corporate and private), health and cooking workshops, magazine publications, online videos, for The Brown Paper Bag blog and for Jacqueline’s partners in nutrition and health.

Jacqueline is also an accomplished public speaker, regularly appearing at Health and Wellness events both to speak, and provide engaging cooking demonstrations.

And the sharing doesn‘t just stop there, Jacqueline is a regular health writer for The Cusp, and has contributed to Elle, Marie Claire, Sporteluxe, Dolly, Cleo and Girlfriend magazines, amidst weekly appearances on The Project and Channel Seven’s The Morning Show. 

Currently, Jacqueline is currently busy working as an ambassador, content and recipe creator and consulting nutritionist for Jurlique.

Jacqueline is also a published author, her book Seasons to Share, features 130 simple, versatile recipes collected into sixteen seasonal menus. Each dish is delicious devoured on its own or served as part of a larger meal for family and friends.

Away from the kitchen, you’ll find Jacq doing laps of the soft sand highway that is Bondi, and surfing with her son Jet.
