1. Brunch means you have plenty of time to get a workout in before sitting down to the table.
I know, I know, you're thinking Sunday = Rest Day, so why would I workout?
Well if you're struggling with the last few pounds, or are worried your Sunday Brunching will throw off all your week-long hard work, it can make a difference.
High intensity intervals would be your best bet to boost your metabolism and burn fat to prepare you for the rest of the day. Plus, you're more likely to say no to a plate full of Canadian bacon if you've spent the morning working your butt off.
2. Be careful about not just what's on your plate, but in your glass.
We tend not to think about our drinks as much as we do our food when it comes to counting macros and calories. But a few "café comiques" (i.e. yummy Bailey's in your coffee) or mimosas can really add up in terms of sugar and extra calories. Limit yourself to 1 or 2, with sugar-free juice when possible, and then stick to water for the rest of the meal.
3. Go for your proteins before your carbs.
You can actually still in indulge in your favourite breakfast foods without it breaking your diet. You want to focus on protein first, which is luckily those delicious eggs (hold the hollandaise sauce) and meats (de-grease that bacon first!). Let carbs be on the bottom of your list, so try to hold off on toast and bagels as much as possible. It will also help you avoid that carb crash later on. But hey, this is still Sunday Brunch, so feel free to go to town on all that fresh fruit!
4. Afterwards, avoiding going home to crash.
There's nothing worse than the Sunday Brunch Coma, where you've eaten too much and then just want to go home to Netflix and Chill for the rest of the day. Instead, to avoid that carb crash, plan something involving some light activity afterwards. This could include a walk with friends, or even going straight to the grocery store afterwards and then home to meal prep! Even a walk around the block after leaving a restaurant can help you digest and give you some more energy for the rest of the day.
