Mother’s Day Meal Ideas for the Special Women in Your Life

Show a treasured woman just how special she really is with one (or more!) of these fantastic recipes.

Breakfast in Bed
Who wouldn’t love to have breakfast in bed? Treat your mom like a queen on Mother’s Day by serving her one of these delicious and nutritious recipes.

• Cereal Surprise. This breakfast tastes as good as it looks. Take a scoop of her favorite whole-grain cereal and mix in a small handful of toasted walnuts or almonds. Add low-fat milk and top with fresh sliced strawberries and blueberries.

Apple ‘N Cranberry Country Bread. To make this wholesome loaf, use Shedd’s Spread Country Crock® instead of butter, which reduces the amount of saturated fat by 3.5 grams and saves 40 calories per serving. The wonderful aroma of this freshly baked loaf will be her wake-up call.

Morning Garden Scramble. Get the kids to help make this easy but nutritious breakfast. Use omega-3-enriched eggs — they are an easy way to get those good omega-3 fats into the diet. Serve with a slice of whole-grain toast and a cup of low-fat milk.

Mother’s Day Lunch or Dinner
Try one of these two healthy recipes if you’re making lunch or dinner for Mom.

Grilled Chicken Sandwiches With Basil Aioli. This is a simple yet tasty sandwich filled with fresh ingredients. Make it on a whole wheat roll for added fiber. Add a slice of low-fat cheese or a glass of low-fat milk to balance the meal.

Warm Tuna & Vegetable Salad. This salad has delicious cooked veggies (using heart-healthy Promise® Buttery Spread) and satisfying chunks of tuna.
