3 Nutritious Spring Brunch Recipes Under 200 Calories

Now that the gorgeous spring weather has returned, the thought of spending an early afternoon brunching outdoors is music to my ears. Decadent dishes like eggs Benedict, cheesy omelets, and gooey French toast are my go-to menu items.

But all that deliciousness comes with a price: calories. A typical brunch — including hash browns, buttered toast, and a few bites of your daughter’s chocolate chip pancake — could easily put you above your recommended calorie intake for the entire day.

While splurging now and again is perfectly fine, you can make a few small adjustments to create a nutritious, yummy brunch at home. Here are some of our favorite spring brunch recipes taken from the Isagenix Recipe Guide. Enjoy!

"Sometimes it's not about losing weight. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I felt lost and trapped in the life I had fallen into. My mom saw me suffering and had just started her own journey. After her first week, she called and told me Isagenix was what I needed, and I fought her on it for four ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I found every reason in the world not to do it: I couldn't afford it. I didn't have the time. I had weddings and holidays coming up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth? I didn't want to do these shakes. I didn't want to be sold something. I didn't want people to think I needed help. I didn't want to admit I didn't have everything under control. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I finally caved to get her off of my back. By the end of the first week, I felt like a completely different person. By the end of the first month, I WAS a completely different person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My stress was nearly nonexistent. I slept like a rock. My energy levels were high and consistent throughout the day. I had unknowingly given up coffee. I woke up feeling alive and not half-dead. That was 2 1/2 years ago. I haven't stopped since. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Isagenix has renewed my passion for exercise and sports, put me in contact with incredible people, and helped me financially.** But above all, it’s helped me realize that no matter how well I'm doing or how great I feel, I started in that same dark and terrible place so many are still in. I was there, and I didn't realize how bad I felt every single day, until I felt good.” — Ray Cataline ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Results you can’t get anywhere else. #isagenix
