These healthy (and wallet-friendly) recipes will completely change the way you think about your weekend mornings
It means bottomless mimosas.
And I hear you. Weekend mornings are for lounging in bed until you're starved -- not setting your alarm so you can put together a buffet for a bunch of hungry (and likely hungover) guests. But there a few pretty compelling reasons to make the effort -- especially when we've got recipes that are extremely low effort.
Click here to see 6 healthy recipes for brunch.
No. 1: Restaurant brunches are known for sub-par food. In his book "Kitchen Confidential," Anthony Bourdain revealed that the brunch shift is usually when the least-experienced cooks work, since restaurants save their best people for Friday and Saturday nights. What's more, kitchens try to use up their leftover ingredients from the previous day. So that steak and eggs Sunday special? Yeah, there's a good chance that was the T-bone that didn't go over so hot Saturday night.
No. 2: Any decent brunch place is packed on weekend mornings. Which means you usually end up standing in a crowd waiting to get in, hungry and annoyed, watching other people eat.
No. 3: Restaurant brunch food can be expensive and full of diet-wrecking ingredients. (Hollandaise sauce, anyone?).
No. 4: In the amount of time you spend waiting around for a table, you could whip together a healthy, delicious brunch at home for you and your friends -- and not even have to make the effort to get out of your pajamas.
