Nothing says Mother's Day like a delicious brunch to spoil the special mamas that we love so much! Here's a round-up of some of my favorite healthy brunch recipes that would come together to make the most perfect menu for your brunch festivities this weekend!
You guys know I love a good snack board / cheese board situation… but how about a Pancake & Waffle Breakfast Board!? Don’t even get me started – it’s a brunch dream! This is so much fun to put together and even more fun to share with your friends! It’s loaded up with paleo pancakes & waffles and all the toppings your heart could dream of – berries, oranges, banana, whipped coconut cream, peanut butter, chocolate almond butter, maple syrup, chocolate chips… you get the idea, it's the ideal way for everyone to build their own perfect pancake and waffle stack! And with Mother's Day coming up on Sunday, this would be such a special way to spoil the amazing mamas in your life!
Why does homemade pie crust seem so intimidating? Maybe because with a regular pie crust you have to worry about the cold butter and refrigerating the dough and rolling it out, etc. etc. That's what has kept me from attempting a homemade crust for so long, but with a paleo crust, none of that is a factor and you can whip it up in a matter of minutes! No rolling required, no refrigerating, no intimidation necessary — you just mix a couple simple ingredients together and press it into a pie dish with your hands. It's truly as easy as... pie!? ;) Seriously though, it's so simple and the perfect crust for any pie or quiche recipe that your heart desires (I strongly recommend trying it out with my Paleo Pesto & Veggie Quiche)!
I've thought about putting my Homemade Cashew Milk on the blog for a while now, but I almost wondered if it was too simple to share on here. I mean can you call it a recipe when there's only 4 ingredients and all you have to do is blend it!? Then I realized, yes, yes you can, and who doesn't love an easy peasy 1-step recipe, especially when it tastes this delicious!? I'm a huge fan of making nut milk at home because 1, it tastes way better (I swear this is like a healthy milkshake!), and 2, you don't have to worry about any weird thickeners or additives in it like you do with so many store-bought options. Of all the nut milks, cashew is my favorite, not just from a taste perspective, but also because you don't have to soak or strain the nuts, so it literally comes together within 2 minutes! Let's make it shall we!?
Anyone who knows me, knows my love for sweets. I mean just take a look at the Desserts section of my recipe box - it's 2 or 3 times longer than any other recipe category. I truly LOVE desserts. They bring so much happiness to my life, and my day just feels incomplete without a little something sweet. But I also realize that eating a whole bunch of sugar every day isn't ideal for our health, so my strategy has always been to create healthy modifications to my favorite treats. That way, we never feel deprived, and we can satisfy our sweet tooth without the sugar crash!
