Mother’s Day is Sunday, and whether you’re celebrating your mom, wife, aunt or sister, the perfect way to honor the maternal figures in your life is with an elegant brunch party. Though a lot of brunch recipes can be nutritionally balanced, many of them are also indulgent. At brunch, people typically treat themselves to items they wouldn’t normally eat during the week. Often, since they are eating breakfast and lunch in one meal, diners think it’s acceptable to eat more calories than they normally would.
This week we interviewed Sandra Lee, editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine, the host of two highly rated television shows on Food Network, to find out her favorite tips for planning the perfect healthy brunch party. Along with some of Lee’s favorite entertaining tips, we wanted to call out some of the most important points to consider when party planning for the leading lady in your life.
