Festive Mother’s Day Brunch

By: Jacqueline Gomes, RDN, MBA

We all know a super mom…she’s busy getting kids ready for school, she may even be home schooling, preparing breakfast, lunches & dinner, driving to and from school events and the list goes on!

Let’s take care of this special woman in your life by pampering her on her special day. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Breakfast kick starts your day with a dose of fuel to keep you going all day long.
  • Eggs provide protein, nutrients and flavor for a great breakfast.
  • No time for breakfast? Dinner will work great too – roasted chicken with vegetables, pasta primavera or baked fish are easy and delicious choices.
  • Take care of her chores for the day and give her some much-needed quiet time.
  • don’t go empty handed! Stop in one of our stores for a beautiful flower arrangement.
