Moms are very special. That’s why there’s a special day set aside each May to honor them. All year they work hard to fill the home with love, health, and nourishing recipes for their families. Mother’s Day is an opportunity to make her feel loved and appreciated by serving her, just as she serves you, by making her a fabulous Mother’s Day breakfast or brunch!
Anybody can buy flowers, but making a delicious meal takes time, effort, and care. As you’re planning her special meal, make sure to avoid her food allergies. This is your time to shine and make a healthy breakfast for your mom — just like she would do for you!

Make sure to seek out the good stuff – chocolate that’s at least 70% cacao! Most moms love chocolate, and it’s good for them, too!
