6 Ways to Serve a Healthy Brunch at Home

Even though I don’t celebrate Easter I usually get-together with friends and family for an Easter Sunday brunch. In past years, we would hit up a decadent Indian food buffet or go to a fancy hotel to dine. On the menu? Pancakes, pies, and cookies, and way too many calories to count.

This year, in keeping with my healthy lifestyle, I invited everyone over for an at-home Sunday brunch.

On the menu:

* Omelets made with eggs or egg whites with your choice of mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes, spinach, cilantro, low-fat cheese, turkey ham, and turkey sausage.

* Roasted red potatoes cooked with onions and bell peppers.

* Whole grain toast topped with light cream cheese or reduced-sugar organic strawberry preserves.

* Fruit, which included a mix of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, pineapple, and cantaloupe.

* Mimosas made with champagne and 100 percent orange juice.

* Dessert was store-bought sugar cookies that had just 75 calories a piece.

All in all, it was a beautiful day and a successful Easter brunch. Everyone was satisfied and no one complained about feeling bloated or overstuffed—the best part!
