History and Current Trend of Brunches
In the early 1800s, breakfast was the first meal of the day and it was usually eaten around sunrise. By the mid-19th century, however, most people were eating breakfast later in the morning. This late breakfast became known as "brunch." While the exact origins of brunch are unknown, it is believed that the meal was first served in England. In the United States, brunch became popular in the 1930s. It gained popularity during World War II as a way to use up leftover foods from the week.
The term "brunch" is a combination of the words "breakfast" and "lunch." It was first used in print in 1895 by British writer Guy Beringer. In his essay, "Brunch: A Plea," Beringer argued that brunch was the perfect meal for a late Sunday morning.
Today, brunch is a popular social event. It is often served buffet-style with a variety of hot and cold dishes. Common brunch items include eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, French toast, fruit, yogurt, bread, and pastries. Brunch is enjoyed by people of all ages and religions. Whether you're looking for a leisurely meal with friends or family, or a quick bite before heading out for the day, brunch is the perfect meal. Brunch is a meal that is enjoyed between 11:00 am and 3:30 pm and accompanied by Mimosas or Bloody Marys.
Healthy Alternatives to a Hearty Brunch
Chocolate Zucchini Bread
-zucchini (smaller in size to fit in a blender)
-pinch of salt
-chocolate chips (optional)
- First, heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, wash your zucchini and cut off the ends. Cut the zucchini into chunks and add them to a blender. Add in half a cup of water and blend until the zucchini is completely broken down and there are no chunks left.
- In a large bowl, mix the zucchini puree, cacao powder, coconut sugar, almond flour, baking soda, and salt. After the batter has been folded, you may add in chocolate chips if desired. I like to add about a cup, but you can add more or less depending on your preference.
- Pour the batter into a loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the bread. Slice the loaf and serve it after it has cooled.
The chocolate zucchini bread will stay fresh for a few days, but it's best when eaten within the first day or two. This recipe is quite simple. And if you're looking for a healthier alternative to traditional chocolate cake or brownies.
