Today on Good Day Sacramento, I shared tips for serving a healthy brunch at home for Easter.
Savory toast and bagel bar
My first tip is to serve a savory toast and bagel bar. I used Little Northern Bakehouse loaves– these are allergy-friendly and gluten-free but with the same taste and texture of traditional baked goods – you can find them in the freezer section of most natural food grocery stores. Then assemble your savory toppings – I have veggies, eggs and the Fresh Cravings savory organic plant-based dips and salsa – these are preservative free so you can find them chilled in the produce section of Safeway, Walmart and Save Mart. Also vegan, gluten-free, made with nut-based protein and the salsa tastes homemade.
Next we have baked granola cups made with sour-sweet tasting US grown Montmorency tart cherries, which are available canned, frozen or dried. I love them because they are long lasting, convenient and incredibly versatile. Plus research is looking at their links to heart heath, sleep, exercise recovery and more.
A brunch beverage with benefits 100% orange juice is our brunch beverage with benefits that contains vitamins and nutrients that support a healthy immune system. An 8 oz. glass is an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of potassium and folate. All the sweetness comes from the naturally occurring sugars that develop as oranges grow so no added sugar.
Adult-friendly beverage For the adult-friendly version we have 100% orange juice sparkling mimosas. Made with Zonin Prosecco made with soft pressed 100% glera grapes and bottled every 45 days for freshness. It’s super fresh prosecco and perfect for brunch.
