''Brunch is cheerful, sociable and inciting. It is talk-compelling. It puts you in a good temper, it makes you satisfied with yourself and your fellow beings, it sweeps away the worries and cobwebs of the week.'' -Guy Beringer, 1895
Back in 1895, Beringer was onto something, especially when it comes to Sunday brunch!
Here are some photos of a recent brunch out that followed a morning of sunscreen and strolling.

Healthier items (à la “wise choice”) may not always be apparent, so think of ways to modify choices into healthier options.
Here are some tips:
o Try to include 3 out of the 4 food groups (as outlined in the Food Guide)
o Choose whole grains
o Opt for egg whites instead of whole eggs
o Use margarine or even peanut butter instead of regular butter on toast
o Be mindful of sides or sauces, like the butter and honey served with the French toast
o Save some for later to make the deliciousness last and spread out the calories!
o If you’re cooking at home, make extra. Reheating in the toaster or microwave can save you time during the week.
o Don’t forget to include fruits and veggies
