Whether you’re treating her to a day at the spa, a chic pair of Spring flats, or a home-cooked meal, Mother’s Day is all about spoiling the special women in your life in the best way possible. For me, nothing says I love you more than a homemade meal, so why not treat mom to a delicious meal you put together yourself? My mother is a do-it-yourself type that gardens, dances, lifts weights, cooks, and knows how to have a good time. For her, a little thought goes a long way. When we spend time together, it’s almost always centered around the kitchen. Now that my kitchen has just finished a huge redo, there couldn’t be a more perfect time to host a quick and easy brunch. I am currently putting together a top notch Mother’s Day menu, with a recipe below! that she would love with healthy options in mind. this season I looked to none other than Target for all my gift giving. The selections are wonderful for every type of mom, and the prices can’t be beat. My ultimate mothers day gift? Spending time with my kids and my mom in the kitchen!
According to nutrition experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I have included a coconut based yogurt, colorful fruit, chia seeds, cashews, and berries as the first course. i also included a homemade infused cranberry drink in this beautiful clear carafe. The Mia Wine/Water Carafe is handmade from 100% recycled glass by Europe’s finest artisans. The Carafe is perfect for everyday enjoyment of your favorite beverages. Individually crafted handmade glass carafe includes a cork stopper perfect for storage. As for what to put inside? I love fruit blends, fruit smoothies, with a prep time of 5 minutes or less. this recipe is from Practical Paleo a new book I just got that is so easy to follow. Here is a recipe for a healthy fruit slushy. I used cherries & lemon, pineapple & lime, lemon & strawberry, lemon & peach, mango & lime – using frozen fruit will yield the best results, but you can use ice plus fresh fruit if that’s all you have.
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 cup frozen cherries
- ~1/2 cup ice
- ~1/2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup (more or less to your taste)
- You can also top with chilled sparkling wine
