New Year’s Eve is fun—but what about the morning after? Whip up a healthy, high protein brunch to get guests back on their feet and ready to face the New Year.
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE
The perfect New Year’s Day brunch takes a few things into account. First, that people were up LATE, making an optimal brunch time closer to 1pm or even later. Second, people may be kicking off that healthy-eating pledge TODAY, so brunch should offer some good-for-you options. And, third, with all the eating, drinking and indulging the night before, this brunch needs some protein-packed eats, fresh fruits and plenty of dishes designed to help party-goers shake it off and ring in the New Year right.
If you have guests crashing at your place after the ball drops, you have a built-in audience. If not, though, it’s important to get your invite out there at the right time—too close to the holidays and it could get lost in the shuffle. Aim to sent in mid-December or, even, after Christmas if guests won’t be traveling far. While people often have New Year’s Eve plans, New Year’s Day tends to be wide open.
