Ok, fine, breakfast can help start our day on the right foot—but truth be told, there's another a.m. meal that can still sneak a bunch of nutrients into the mix without sacrificing flavor. Yes, I'm talking about brunch. But, contrary to popular belief, breakfast's fancier cousin is not just about eggs, bacon and sugar-laden French toasts. The proof? This healthier brunch recipe! Packed with antioxidants, healthy fats, and energy-boosting carbs, these mascarpone and berry croissants are here to take your brunch game to a whole new level. So, if you are ready to sweeten your Sunday mornings without sacrificing your healthy-eating goals, put the Belgian waffles aside, and say hello to these yummy croissants. You won't regret it!
