Sunday is Mother’s Day! Have you crafted your plan yet? Will you be eating out? If so, you’ll be in good company. According to the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day is the most popular holiday for eating out.
We like to eat out, but try to avoid it on busy holidays, like Mother’s Day. We’ll be taking her out for dinner Monday night instead. It will be a lot less crowded so the food and service is apt to be a lot better. And we can all be there. Win-Win.
Sunday, I’m planning to invite her over for a casual breakfast/brunch. As I was searching the archives trying to decide what to make, I decided to aggregate some of my favorite Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes for Weight Watchers…
I’ve got lots of ideas including smoothies, yogurt parfaits, breakfast casseroles, baked oatmeal and muffins. All would work well for a light, healthy and delicious Mother’s Day Brunch. Enjoy!
Light & Healthy Smoothie – A sweet and delicious way to kick off Mother’s Day Brunch. There are gazillions of healthy smoothie recipes for breakfast to choose from, but in the name of keeping things simple all you really need is a basic smoothie recipe to use as a template from which you can create your own delicious variations till your heart’s content. Or for more ideas, here’s a collection of 15 Low Calorie Smoothie Recipes.
Strawberry, Yogurt and Granola Breakfast Parfait – A lovely layered yogurt, granola and fruit parfait is a lovely way to begin or end your Mother’s Day brunch. Choose whatever combination of fruit, yogurt and granola Mom likes best. Or skip the granola and make these cute little skinny berry yogurt cups.
Spinach Quiche – Weight Watchers can eat REAL quick as this delicious recipe from The Bonne Femme cookbook demonstrates. Who would ever guess that the spinach quiche recipe from a French cookbook would be the most restrained of the bunch, calling for fewer eggs, less cheese and a mixture of cream and milk? Certainly not moi!
Spinach Feta Quiche with Quinoa Crust – Gluten free? Looking for a less traditional take on quiche? If you are like Peter, love quiche – but not a fan of traditional pastry crust, you’ll want to consider this recipe from Cooking Light with a simple 3-ingredient quinoa crust.
Scrambled Eggs with Smoked Salmon – Made with a combination of whole egg and egg whites, each serving has just 210 calories and *6 Weight Watchers Points Plus. An easy way to impress your mom this Mother’s Day.
Slow Cooker Southwest Breakfast Casserole – Vegetarian, and packed with shredded potatoes, corn, black beans and red bell pepper, this colorful slow cooker southwest breakfast casserole is a tasty way to celebrate Mother’s Day.
Crock Pot Baked Oatmeal – If you’ve never had baked oatmeal you’re in for a treat. To me it tastes like a warm-from-the oven oatmeal muffin or cookie, rather than cereal. I kept this batch of crock pot baked oatmeal kinda plain. But you can add fruit (fresh, frozen or dried) or nuts if you prefer to fancy it up. I love it with fresh fruit and/or yogurt. Or try these yummy variations for carrot cake slow cooker baked oatmeal, individual banana bread baked muffin cups. coconut slow cooker baked oatmeal, crock pot peanut butter banana baked oatmeal
Skinny Western Omelet Muffins – I used finely chopped ham, green onion, red bell pepper and reduced fat cheddar cheese in these omelet muffins, but they’re easy to customize to suit your likes and what you have on hand. Using half whole eggs and half egg whites keeps them lower in fat and calories while still getting the health benefits of the yolks. Each 2-muffin serving has just 119 calories and *3 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
Skinny Kiwifruit Muffins – Yummy! Yummy! best describes these muffins. These skinny kiwifruit muffins baked up moist, sweet and delicious with only 4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus. Enjoy them warm-from-the-oven for breakfast or brunch.
