10 Guilt-Free Brunch Recipes for Mother's Day

- in US

You see all of your friends posting weekend plans on Facebook and panic: Mother’s Day is this weekend?! You scramble for your phone, calling every restaurant in the neighborhood before securing a reservation.

But with egg dishes covered in hollandaise sauce, fluffy bagels and lots of sugary baked goods, it looks like the occasion is going to seriously derail your goals for (quickly approaching) bathing suit season. The meal tends to live up to its name, packing in enough calories for breakfast and lunch combined (and sometimes even eating into your dinner budget, too).

Going homemade is the easiest way to celebrate without having to compromise your healthy diet, but when it comes to making brunch plans (and hosting your mother-in-law), who has the time or energy to slave over the stove on a Sunday? Luckily whipping up brunch for a crowd at home can be time- and calorie-conscious, and can still include your favorites from the menu.

Impress Mom this weekend with one of these colorful, flavor-packed recipes. Let her think you slaved over the stove all morning it’ll be our little secret.
