Brunching Your Way to a Healthy Body!

Are you brunching hard or hardly brunching? Brunch has become one of the most popular trends in recent years and this fad seems like it is here to stay! Whether it is a late breakfast or early lunch, brunch is a beautiful combination of the two important meals. But what are you really getting out of brunch?

Brunch can be good, but it can also be oh so bad!

Here's what you should know before your next brunch date:

  • An estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually.
  • Fatty liver is present in approximately 90-100% of heavy drinkers.
  • A higher calorie intake increases the risk of developing excess fat on your liver.
  • Diet plays a major role in the health of your liver.

How does this relate to brunch?

Well, brunch is very well known for including various alcoholic beverages. From sangria to mimosa’s, alcohol is highly popular in brunch. Alcohol consumption should always be monitored or avoided for a healthy liver. Especially when we are eating, it is important to moderate alcohol consumption because you may be forcing your liver to work overtime!

Brunch foods also tend to be filled with sugar and fats that should be avoided. Everything that we intake is processed through the liver, so pushing it to process the sugar, fats, and alcohol can cause it to work a little too hard. Though your liver can regenerate itself, it also has its limits.

How can I brunch without harming my health?

Don’t be sad, we aren’t trying to ruin brunch! We are simply helping you modify it. A healthier brunch is absolutely possible. As long as your brunch menu is filled with healthier food choices, with very limited or no alcohol included, you can still enjoy a delicious brunch with your friends.

In fact, there are even some drinks that can be considered “healthier” than others (as long as they are also drank in moderation); Ones that have fewer calories and less alcohol. Find out some of the best and worst drinks for you here.
