Mother’s Day is around the corner, which means it’s time to celebrate motherly figures and give them some extra recognition and love. Raising tiny humans is hard work, and who wants to cook their own celebration brunch? Here are a few recipes that are simple, healthy, AND kid-friendly. So now there’s no excuses for getting your tiny humans into the kitchen with someone OTHER than you to prepare them :)
Eggs and avocados are both full of healthy fats and proteins to start your day off strong, and this recipe can be tailored for both baby and mom without extra fuss. Simply halve an avocado and take out the pit, making enough room for an egg to fit in its place. Leave the skin on, and crack an egg into the divot. For kids, top their eggs with shredded cheese. For moms, line the divot with smoked salmon before dropping the egg in. Put the avocado halves on a baking sheet and place them in the oven at 425 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Let cool, serve the kids’ avocados without the skin and top with green onion, and top mom’s avocados with dill.
Breakfast Banana Parfait-Split
Parfaits are a sweet option for brunch, especially because they’re easy and you can put whatever you want on them. For a healthy spin on a banana split for brunch, start with a base of Greek yogurt, and add bananas, your favorite berries, and granola. Top with dark chocolate chips for a decadent spin.
The best kind of breakfast is the kind you wake up to, and it’s ready to go. All you need to do is layer ¾ cup of old-fashioned oats in a mason jar with 1 teaspoon of pure maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of sunflower butter, and 1 teaspoon of chia seeds. Add fruits such as berries and bananas, top with 1 cup of your favorite unsweetened milk, cover tightly, and put in the refrigerator before bed. When you wake up, breakfast is served!
Serve alongside drinks made of half orange juice and half tonic water with a spritz of lemon for an extra kick.
We hope you find your favorite way to relax and unwind this Mother’s Day- you deserve it!
