Written by Steve Collins on March 27, 2023

Easter is a time for family and friends to come together and enjoy a delicious meal. If you're looking to host a brunch that's not only delicious but also gut-friendly, we've got you covered.

Here's a menu that most can be prepared the night before in less than an hour! Sunday morning, wake up and enjoy a cup of (collagen) coffee while your oven does the rest:


How to: host the perfect gut-friendly easter brunch

  1. Collagen Coffee: add a scoop of Perfectly Pure Collagen peptides to your guests coffee, tea or fresh orange juice (tasteless - creaminess inducing!) and watch their face when you tell them your "secret ingredient" coffee for great hair, skin, nails, joints and gut health.

  2. Chocolate Protein Milk: Serve up a glass of chocolate milk made with your favourite milk or mylk and a scoop of Swiss Chocolate Probiotic protein powder. It contains 5 types of digestive enyzmes, probiotics, minerals and glycine - the "active" ingredient in collagen.

  3. Parmesan Scrambled Eggs: For a savory option, whip up some parmesan scrambled eggs and serve on sourdough toast if desired.  This dish is not only incredibly delicious and quick, but also highly nutritious and full of important vitamins and minerals.

  4. Sourdough French Toast: For a sweet breakfast option, serve up some classic sourdough french toast. Properly fermented sourdough bread acts as a prebiotic, which means that the fiber in the bread helps feed the "good" bacteria in your intestines. 

  5. Seasonal fruit: Add some fresh, seasonal fruit to your brunch spread for a healthy dose of vitamins and antioxidants. Berries, melon, and citrus fruits are all great options.

  6. Coconut Kefir: Serve up a cold glass of kefir for a probiotic boost. Kefir is a fermented milk drink that is easy on the gut and promotes gut health.

  7. Collagen & Ricotta Pancakes: For a decadent option, make some ricotta & lemon pancakes. These high protein pancakes are packed with gut-healing proteins, essential prebiotics, and are gluten-free too.

  8. Dark chocolate: chocolate is part of easter and doesn't have to be a "guilty" pleasure. Choose a good quality dark chocolate (at least 70%) - it contains important prebiotic fibers and polyphenols, which have been shown to have a positive impact on gut health by reducing inflammation and promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.

  9. Gut-friendly chocolate panna cotta: This light, yet still deliciously creamy gut friendly Panna Cotta is full of gut friendly ingredients such as gelatin, and collagen. Eating more pro-gut proteins like gelatin, collagen and organ meats is a simple way to both improve your protein intake, and give your gut a powerful healing boost on your way up to better health.

  10. Baked oatmeal protein bars: These collagen oatmeal bars are made with a short list of nutritious ingredients and our favourite "pro-gut protein," Collagen. Perfectly Pure™ Collagen has zero taste and is a simple way to both improve your protein intake, and give your gut a powerful healing boost on your way up to better health.

BONUS: ADD TO EASTER BASKET: Adults and kids immune systems are being left vulnerable with over use of antibiotics, over sanitation, and over consumption of processed food. A diverse microbiome is CRITICAL to a well trained immune system. Opti Flor™ is a brilliant multi-strain probiotic, suitable for kids 2+ and adults - the perfect addition to any easter-baskets. 

Consider a quality probiotic as part of a sickness, allergy and autoimmune (such as skin problems) prevention strategy as early as possible. It's the ultimate gift for anyone. 

In conclusion, hosting the perfect gut-friendly Easter brunch is all about choosing the right ingredients. From collagen coffee to kefir, these gut-friendly options will keep you and your guests happy and healthy. Happy Easter!
