It’s Good Food Friday! Today I shared healthy Mother’s Day brunch ideas to spoil mom.
High fiber build-your-own waffle bar:
These waffles come together in minutes and are made with a better-for you flour. With five times more fiber and fewer net carbs than traditional all-purpose flour, Flourish Flour helps everyone get more fiber, a nutrient that most Americans fall short on according to NHANES data. Plus, it tastes great! To make these waffles, Simply whisk together 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1 tbsp of baking powder, 3 tbsp of sugar, 2 ¼ cup of Flourish Flour. In another bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 1 tsp of vanilla extract ½ cup of vegetable oil, 2 cups of milk and 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Combine your wet and dry ingredients until you have a uniform batter and pour into your waffle iron. Because Flourish naturally contains prebiotic fiber, you don’t have to skip out on your brunch favorites like pancakes or scones. The prebiotic fiber in Flourish feeds the good bacteria in your gut, helping to support digestion and immune health. Flourish isn’t a flour alternative, it’s all-purpose flour. With the fiber benefits you’d associate with whole wheat flour but none of the compromise on flavor. Just replace the flour in your go-to brunch recipes with Flourish for the same delicious results every time you cook. You can find Flourish Flour exclusively on Amazon.
Exotic yogurt parfaits
Next we have yogurt parfaits with an exotic twist. These parfaits are made with unique tropical fruits including star apple, yellow dragon fruit and mango from Fruit Hunters which is a small e-commerce business based out of Miami, FL that specializes in shipping exotic and tropical fruit nationwide including Cacao, passion fruit and custard apples. They work with local, organic farmers to help make the best quality tropical fruit more readily available to all. Including a wide variety of produce in your diet ensures you get a range of different vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients to meet your needs. My favorite exotic fruit from fruit hunters is the yellow dragon fruit. To consume, simply cut the fruit in half and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. The seeds are edible, similar to the kiwi. You can order the 5-7 pound seasonal box of tropical fruits for 69.99 at fruithunters.com.
