When Planning a Brunch…

… you’re looking for balance. Consider including something …

    • … sweet and carby
    • … toasty or bready
    • … eggy
    • … quenching
    • … oaty
    • … fresh
    • … meaty

You, of course, do not need to include all of these elements, unless you feel like going all out. Below are some ideas for each category noted above:
