Thank you to Great Day Farms for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
Everybody in your friend group is on a different eating plan right now, huh? Intermittent fasting, keto, Whole30--the list might be long but we're always on the same page when it comes to one thing: brunch. We need it! If you still want to assemble your squad for everyone's favorite meal without sabotaging anybody's #bodygoals, here's some menu inspiration with a little something for each person in your clique. This healthy brunch menu can serve as the perfect pregame to a good sweaty workout or maybe a get together after a fitness event.
I've partnered with Great Day Farms to build this healthy brunch menu because with their hard-boiled eggs, which are such a time-saver for everything from gatherings like the one you see here to my everyday eating routine. For example, I'll pair a two-pack of hard-boiled eggs with a smoothie or baked oatmeal for an easy and nearly instant breakfast on workday mornings. The six-packs are particularly helpful for hosting at home as they cut out all the cooking time associated with delicious recipes like my avocado deviled eggs. (You can save $0.25 on a two-pack or $0.50 on a six-pack here!) Both are available at Walmart, which is where I grab mine. While elaborate entertaining inspo is fun to look at, I know that we all have limited time so am always looking for time and effort-saving solutions to share with y'all. This is one such hack.
Healthy Brunch Menu
- Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs & Salsa Rojo
- Blue Corn Chips & Guacamole
- Spinach Salad with Spicy Grilled Chicken (salad building tips here)
- Fresh Berry Salad (here's a delicious fruit salad recipe)
- Mandarin Oranges
- Mixed Nuts
- Layered Smoothies (cherry ginger layer and tropical green layer)
- Sparkling or Infused Water
These easy dishes hit on all the points we like--from protein, to nutrients and energy, to healthy fats and good flavors. This spread includes a little of everything--gluten-free, low-carb, no-added sugar--whatever you can think of, it's addressed. But it isn't boring by any means! Brunch is all about mixing sweet and savory flavors with some element of fun, which is well-represented in this healthy brunch menu. And, since we eat with our eyes first, there's no shortage of colors. By the way, if you haven't enjoyed your favorite salsa on a hard-boiled egg, you've been missing out on an easy little snack that's packed with both protein and flavor. Try it out as soon as you can.
And brunch is not brunch without bubbles, right? If you're trying to keep things lighter, pour up some sparkling water instead of champagne. Champagne flutes and straws make it a little more fun. Aside from the easy menu items, all you really need to recreate this setup is decor. But there's no need to fuss. I put together an eclectic flower arrangement with a few grocery store blooms (tips on that here) and then scattered mandarin oranges around that, which also doubled as a menu item. For even more inspo, check out this beautiful brunch I hosted last year. As always, thanks for reading!
