Tell the moms in your life ‘Thank You’ with a special Whole30 Mother’s Day Brunch
This week marks our twelfth and final weekly meal plan menu in this series. Sad, right?! Don’t worry. We’ll be back again after the chaos and carefreeness of summer dies down to a dull roar (read: sometime in late August – early September) because we know you’ll all be ready for structure in meals and life in general. So will we 🙂 In the meantime, feel free to repeat any and all of the 12 Weekly Meal Prep Menus which you’ll find HERE.
Since this final menu falls on the weekend that we celebrate Mother’s Day here in the U.S. we thought we’d pull together 5 simple recipes from around the web that you can put together for a killer brunch. Or just prep them all like you normally do on the weekend and get a super delish start on the week ahead.

Whole30 Mother’s Day Brunch Menu
Asparagus Frittata with Spicy Sausage and Leeks from Paleo Running Momma (Serves 6) – Simple yet sophisticated, this easy frittata features the leeks and spicy sausage. If you’re planning to feed a crowd, consider doubling the recipe (and ingredients on your shopping list) and bake it in a 9×13-inch pan instead.
Even better: Bake up a big batch in this gorgeous stoneware baking dish from Lodge and let your guest of honor keep the dish as a gift! It’s like 2 gifts in 1 for all those foodie mamas out there.
Blackberry Sage Breakfast Sausage Patties (Serves 6-8) – Don’t knock ’em until you’ve tried ’em! Blackberries and sage may seem like an unlikely combo when it comes to breakfast sausage but oh. my. gah! These are so good. They’re also freezer-friendly so if you’re not entertaining and you’re making this menu for your weekly prep sesh insted then consider doubling the recipe and stashing half of them in the freezer for an easy reheat & eat protein.
Crispy Garlic Ranch Roasted Potatoes (Serves 6-8) – Quite possibly the most glorious thing to ever happen to the humble potato… ghee + herbs & seasonings and lots of crispy edges. Yes, please! You’ll love these for breakfast or for dinner – just be warned, they may be habit forming.
Arugula Strawberry Salad from Cook Eat Paleo (Serves 2*) – Sweet strawberries and peppery arugula come together for a simple salad packed with vitamins and minerals (and crunchy slivered almonds). If you’re making this for a crowd, be sure to adjust the servings accordingly*. If making this as part of your weekly meal prep, prepare the dressing and store separately in a covered container or a mason jar with a cool flip top lid like this (to minimize the messy awkwardness of pouring liquid from a jar).
*Ingredients for this dish have been doubled on the grocery list to make enough to serve 4. If you need to serve more, adjust the grocery list and recipe accordingly.
Curry Cauliflower Hummus (Serves 6) – Hummus is traditionally made with chickpeas which aren’t allowed on the Whole30 so we’ve created a garlicky, low-carb, Whole30 compliant version using cooked cauliflower instead. Serve it with plenty of fresh vegetables for dipping.
Mix up a mocktail for Mom! Check out these Whole30-compliant mocktails from Whole30 – For some reason, fizzy drinks just make a girl feel fancy! Healthy mocktails are a great way to hydrate when you celebrate because they contain no alcohol or added sugars.
Finally, to round out your Whole30 Mother’s Day Brunch, add a bowl of mixed fruit for color and a little side of natural sweetness.

Tips to Rock this Meal Prep
- Start by preparing the Curry Cauliflower Hummus as directed in the recipe. Place in fridge to chill. Wash and chop fresh vegetables for serving with hummus. Note: This can be done up to 2 days in advance.
- Prepare the Blackberry Sage Sausage Patties as directed in the recipe.
- Prep the Crispy Garlic Ranch Roasted Potatoes to go into the oven then set aside. (Don’t put them in quite yet if you want the potatoes and frittata to be done at this same time).
- Arrange oven racks so that you can fit both the potatoes and the frittata in the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Prep the Asparagus Frittata with Spicy Sausage and Leeks while the oven preheats. When oven reaches 400°F place the potatoes into the oven. Roast for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes, add the frittata to the oven and cook for 20-25 minutes or until center is set. Check the potatoes for doneness, giving them an additional 5-10 minutes as needed. At this time, you can place the cooked Blackberry Sage Sausage Patties into the oven in a oven-safe dish to rewarm them before serving.
- While the potatoes and frittata are baking, prepare the salad and mocktail (and fresh fruit, if using).
