Easter is the welcoming of spring, the resurrection of Christ, and a great time to celebrate and share brunch with your family and friends. It is important to remember, warriors do NOT take holidays off. It is essential you have a food strategy when it comes to holiday celebrations.

Easter comes sugar-filled goodies, chocolate bunnies, leading to overall brain-fog and a upset stomach. This year I encourage you to avoid a sugar hangover by kicking the nasty white stuff to the curb and transforming Easter into a sugar-free affair.

Take advantage of the Easter weekend and use this time to nourish and rejuvenate your body, get involved in healthy festivities like creating a brain-healthy brunch to share with family and friends. Unlike some holiday meals, this one won’t leave you feeling sleepy before you watch all the kids do their Easter egg hunt. Be prepared and make this your brunch plan for this holiday:

Grainless Blueberry Muffin: Crunchy, warm, and a perfect Easter treat.

Super Simple Tanana Pancakes: Named after my grandson, who loves these just as much as you will.

Fresh Berries with Macadamia Sauce: A perfect and refreshing spin on a holiday classic!

This menu is refreshing, light, and when presented at the table is a beautiful display of the colors of spring. To find more recipes, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the Brain Warrior’s Way Cookbook.
