Mother's Day is right around the corner and it's time to get organized! Get that meal plan organized, your table set, and gifts wrapped! Mamas out there: relax and enjoy some much earned appreciation 💕
My Mother's Day Menu
To celebrate Mother's day right I've created a feast designed around my Mom's (Linda's) favorite flavors and dishes. These include things like fresh fruit, lots of spices, and tons of greens!
Linda is a huge fan of fresh juice and is also a gigantic fan of beets. I remember being a kid and sitting down to a meal with a beet salad on the side and wanting to die! I hated beets as a child, but as I become more and more similar to my wonderful mother I have learned to adore these sweet bright red tubers and now love to incorporate them into my weekly diet!
Next up we have some AMAZING cranberry-blueberry muffins! I can't wait to dive into these and I know Linda will be excited too because I've never met another person on the planet who eats as many berries as she does. And who can blame her! They're an extremely versatile ingredient and are packed with antioxidants to help her recover from those killer endurance training runs.
To add a savory component to our Mother's Day brunch, I'm adding a vegan-egg based frittata filled with some of Linda's favorite ingredients like, mushrooms, tons of spinach, olives and tomatoes!
As a side dish, we're throwing together some super delicious and savory truffle-parmesan breakfast potatoes. The flavor in these potatoes is so incredible, it'll elevate the meal to feel like the perfectly elegant Mother's Day brunch everyone's mom deserves!

For the Mom who LOVES animals
This Mother's day let's not forget about the mothers exploited in the animal agriculture industry. Dairy cow mothers have their babies taken away from them hours after birth and are used like machines throughout their short lives. So let's leave animal products off our plates this Mother's day and make a donation to Farm Sanctuary! Read here about the amazing story of a mother and her baby's fight to stay together.
