    [post_content] => Healthy Mother's Day brunch recipesBy Kristin Sidorov
Good food isn’t only the way to a man’s heart—it's a wonderful way to show the moms in your life just how much you love them, too. This Mother’s Day, give Mom something that’s good and good for her—you’ll be showing her twice the love, and we promise she’ll savor every bit of these decadent yet surprisingly healthy recipes. Whether you’re planning a classic brunch, breakfast in bed, or satisfying her sweet tooth, she'll love you for it!

—Asparagus, Green Garlic, and Goat Cheese Quiche (The Cilantropist)
Benefits: Just one cup of asparagus packs Vitamin A, fiber, iron, and is a good source of plant protein. Garlic can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and goat cheese is lower in calories but higher in vitamins D and K than standard cow's milk cheeses.

—Avocado and Dried Blueberry Scones (Family Fresh Cooking)
Benefits: Avocados pack a nutritional punch, with Vitamin K, Vitamin B-6, and carotenoids, which have a protective and antioxidant effect. Avocados can also help prevent against high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke, and are a wonderful source of healthy fats.

—Yogurt Cheesecake with Orange Shortbread Crust (A Spicy Perspective)
Benefits: Greek yogurt is a deliciously thick and creamy type that provides a good amount of protein—almost twice the amount of standard yogurts, which can help you feel full and satisfied longer. It also contains substantially less sugar, but still has all the same healthy bacterias and tons of calcium. Opt for the fat-free variety for all the benefits and none of the guilt.

—Spinach, Portobello, and Parmigiano Frittata (Bell'alimento)
Benefits: Spinach is a nutritional super-food. It's low in calories and chock full of Vitamin K, Vitamin A, manganese, folate, fiber, calcium, protein, and iron. It has also been suggested that spinach has cancer-fighting antioxidants, can help improve cardiovascular health, and improve brain function. Portobello mushrooms are also nutritionally dense, with fiber, selenium, niacin, and phytochemicals, which work as powerful antioxidants.

—Honey Whole-Wheat Strawberry Shortcakes (Simple Bites)
Benefits: Whole grains can help reduce cholesterol, blood pressure, and the risk of heart disease, and contain antioxidants, B Vitamins, Vitamin E, and fiber. Strawberries have Vitamin C, manganese, and are also a powerful antioxidant.

—Baked Eggs in Ham (Babble Family Kitchen)
Benefits: Eggs are a fantastic source of nutrients, with tons of protein, healthy fats, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and choline, which is essential for cell membrane function. Ham is rich in B vitamins and is a great choice for meat protein, with no saturated or trans fat.

—Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Yogurt Hollandaise (A Food Centric Life)
Benefits: With 14 grams of protein in only a 70-calorie portion, smoked salmon is fantastic low-calorie choice. It also has a healthy amount of beneficial fats, including omega-3 fatty acids, which can protect cardiovascular health, plus Vitamins A, E, D, B-12, and antioxidants.

—Skinny Hummingbird Cupcakes (Skinny Taste)
Benefits: These cupcakes use bananas, which are a great source of fiber and potassium, a nutrient most Americans are lacking in their diets. Potassium can protect cardiovascular health and prevent muscle cramping. Throw in pecans, and you're also getting protein, fiber, and a healthy serving of good fats.

—Rosemary Cheddar Cornbread Muffins (The Realistic Nutritionist)
Benefits: Rosemary is a wonderfully fragrant herb that packs Vitamins A, C, and B-6, as well as healthy lipids and antioxidants. Cornmeal is a great alternative for baked goods, with a much richer nutritional profile than flour. Its a whole grain and contains niacin, folate, Vitamins B-6, E, and K, as well as 18 amino acids.
