Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas
I love Mother’s Day brunch as much as the next mom, but when you suffer from pain like I do, I am choosier on what I eat. I notice that when I eat too much flour or sugar that I get more pain in my hands and elbow for example. This is why I wanted to share with you some of my favorite Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas to help you celebrate without the guilt. It might save you on calories too!
My favorite types of pancakes are those made with oatmeal flour. This is a simple substitution that switches out regular flour with oatmeal. Simply take dry oatmeal and put it in the blender until it becomes a powder. You can load these delicious pancakes up with berries full of antioxidants and sprinkle some cinnamon that can also lower pain. Finally drizzle it with a bit of honey instead of syrup.
Here is a step by step recipe that you can tweak to your taste https://www.wellplated.com/oatmeal-pancakes/
Overnight oats can be a delicious treat that tastes just like dessert. My favorite recipe has coconut milk, almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla, and almond butter and you can cut up some bananas. I like to also add some allspice for extra flavor and sweeten up with a little maple syrup.
Follow this simple recipe to get you started.

May is mango season and if you have never tried mangoes, this is a great time of the year to get some at your local grocery store. I live in South Florida where mangoes are abundant and I simply pick some up from my brother’s tree in the backyard. You can get mangoes that are extra sweet and peel them almost like a banana or you can have them green and slice them. They are very tart and taste almost like a granny smith apple.
This video will show you how to select a mango which is especially helpful if you are a first timer.
I hope you enjoyed these Healthy Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas and maybe you can eat these year round too!
