Healthy Breakfast & Brunch Ideas
For Easter breakfast or brunch I suggest having water, fresh fruit, vegetables, and clean proteins to get your day started right.
Drink lemon water or sparkling water
Water is important, especially during the morning because you’ve been without water for 6+ hours.
- Start your Easter morning off right with filtered water.
- Bonus points if you add freshly squeezed lemon to your water.
- You’ll need approx. 1 lemon wedge for every 8 oz. of water. Lemon juice boosts benefits.
- Double Bonus Points if you drink it out of a wine glass. 😉
- TIP: Try my Lemon Water Challenge it’s the easiest detox you’ll ever do.
Quick & Easy Easter Brunch Recipes
- Frittata – A frittata is like a crustless quiche. It’s literally an omelet you bake in the oven. I like to add approximately 2 cups of mixed omelet-friendly vegetables, like diced broccoli, onion, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, etc. and pour 6 beaten eggs over the top. Season with salt, pepper, herbs, and spices to taste. I bake mine in a 10″ cast iron skillet at 350 until the eggs are cooked and firm. It takes about 30 minutes and tastes amazing.
- Easy Egg Breakfast Muffins – These are like mini-frittatas made in a muffin tin. I like to make extras to meal prep breakfast for the next day.
- Traditional omelets are great on Easter, too. Use a lot of vegetables to add fiber and stay fuller, longer.
- Serve sides of veggies, like tomato and avocado slices. This will help get more fiber and plant-based foods into your breakfast or brunch.
You really can’t go wrong with a fresh fruit. Fruit is high in fiber and loaded with antioxidants and vitamins. You can easily serve fresh fruit a few ways:
- Pre-prepped and arranged on a platter – You can pre-slice and prep your fruits and arrange them on a platter. It’s always fun to arrange the fruit into holiday-friendly shapes. Like this super cute Bunny Head Fresh Fruit Platter.
- Whole in a bowl – Whole pieces of fruit like apples, plums, oranges, tangerines, and pears make pretty edible centerpieces for your Easter table. Strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, grapes are easy to prepare. You can also toss them into a fresh fruit salad.
- As a fruit salad – Toss your favorite fruits together in a bowl and dress with lemon juice to prevent discoloration. Apples, pineapples, grapes, melons, berries, and watermelon work well together.
- In a smoothie – Add your favorite fruits in with your favorite protein powder and nut milk for a quick and easy breakfast. This green smoothie recipe is my all-time favorite.
NOTE: Because fruit is high in sugar, it’s good to pair fruit with protein and high fiber vegetables to help regulate blood sugar levels.
NOTE: I’m assuming you’ve already got your main dish(es) covered. Think ham or turkey…
Here are my top ideas for starters and sides that I use and recommend most for Easter.
