Brain Healthy Easter Brunch Made Easy

As with most holidays, the focus has shifted away from what’s important. For many of us, even in these tough times, Easter is a religious and spiritual holiday of new life, a time of renewal. If it’s not a religious holiday for you, Easter likely holds some significance of the changing seasons or time for family, perhaps virtually if you can’t be with your loved ones in person.

Yet it has become an American tradition to enjoy the holiday with brunch foods that don’t love us back—think muffins made with refined flour, eggs benedict drowning in Hollandaise sauce, and mountains of fatty bacon. And then, of course, there’s the candy—chocolate crème eggs (aka low-quality milk chocolate, sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, artificial coloring) and those marshmallow chicks (aka sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, and additives. And you know what comes after the typical Easter brunch—brain fog, a grumbling gut, and zapped energy. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Brain Warriors know that there are no “cheat” days in the war for better brain health. While you don’t have to be perfect, celebrating with gluttony has become the expected norm. Isn’t it time to start a new tradition? What if you could have both? What if you could enjoy delicious brunch foods with your family, and feel energized and grateful when you leave the table?

Having a strategy in hand makes it easy to get through the holidays feeling great.

This year on this day of renewal, set your intention on renewing your commitment to being a Brain Warrior. Think about all the benefits you have been blessed with thanks to your new habits and share them with your loved ones.

Preparing a “Warrior approved” healthy Easter brunch is a great way to give them a peek into how eating right is all about abundance, not deprivation. Try the following menu for a delicious meal with your family. The kids will like it too! Some of these recipes are on this website. Others can be found in The Brain Warrior’s Way Cookbook.
