Easter is just a few days away and though it’s not quite the food fest that Thanksgiving and Christmas can be, it still can be a calorie overload. Here’s an idea: instead of the Easter mass followed by the massive Sunday brunch followed by the Easter egg hunt followed by the immense holiday family dinner, go super light for 1 of those meals! Here are 8 brunch treats that are under 80 calories, that way you don’t have to feel as guilty when it comes time for dinner:

1. Whole Foods two-bite Blueberry Cafe Scone

2. Nancy’s Petite Quiche

3. 3 Van’s Mini Totally Natural Waffles with 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup

4. smoked salmon bagel bite (top 1/2 Thomas’ 100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thin with 3/4 tbsp. Philadelphia Light Smoked Salmon Cream Cheese)

5. 1/2 grapefruit drizzled with honey & broiled

6. 2 pieces Applegate Farms Organic Sunday Bacon

7. Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Vanilla-Flavored Coffee

8. pomegranate mimosa (combine 1 oz. fresh orange juice, 1 oz. pomegranate juice, & 2 oz. sparkling wine)

Instead of a food-focused buffet brunch indoors, munch & sip your treats outdoors & enjoy all that nature has to offer this spring!
