10 Lighter Versions of Your Favorite Brunch and Breakfast Foods
Quick survey: How many of you love the weekend? I’m going to take a guess and say, oh, all of you. Even if your weekend schedule is packed with activities, it’s still your chance to sleep in a little later, sit and enjoy your morning coffee, and relax. One reason I love the weekend is because I can actually take the time to make and enjoy my breakfast, instead of simply rushing out the door. Whether it’s French toast or waffles, an omelet or quiche, I can kick back and enjoy a meal reserved especially for lazy mornings.
The problem is this: Buttermilk pancakes with syrup isn’t exactly the healthiest way to start my day. The good news is, there are plenty of recipes that can help you lighten up your favorite brunch indulgences. While they wont replace a breakfast of steel-cut cut oats and berries, these “skinny” versions of the original recipes have cut down on the fat and sugar and amped up the protein and veggies. This means you get more of the good stuff while still getting to indulge. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend.
