You’re a woman like no m-other. Spring is in full bloom and Mother’s Day is around the corner. This week, we are sharing our Mother’s Day meal ideas to celebrate mom in style. We partnered with Atkins to create a healthy, fine dining experience at home. A low-carb, low-sugar meal with seasonal vegetables and fresh seafood can be just as satisfying as a rich, carb-heavy meal. Best of all, you won’t feel the carbs on your waistline. We are excited to share our Atkins Mother’s Day meal ideas with you.
Discovering the Atkins Lifestyle: A Guide to Understanding the Principles Behind the Atkins Recipes
Going into fat-burning mode. The Atkins lifestyle has been around for decades and focuses on incorporating fiber-rich vegetables, lean proteins, and heart-healthy fats into meals and snacks throughout the day. Last week, we focused on eating low carb, low sugar Atkins friendly meals. The Atkins: Eat Right Not Less features delicious recipes for breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner. This guidebook has several scrumptious Mother’s Day meal ideas. When creating a menu, we recommend incorporating a variety of color, texture and flavor.
Mother’s Day Meal Ideas: Set a Beautiful Tablescape
You’re mum-believeable! Creating a beautiful tablescape is an important part of any special occasion, especially when it comes to Mother’s Day meal ideas. Our Mother’s Day meal ideas begins with a stylish tablescape featuring beautiful linens. We dressed the table with chic pink, gray and green floral linens.
Layering green dinner plates with floral salad plates created a subtle contrast that elevated the overall look of the table setting. We also created custom Mother’s Day menus, and placed them at each place setting. This added a personalized touch to each place setting.
Mother’s Day meal ideas with these small but thoughtful details for will help create a warm and inviting ambiance for a Mother’s Day meal that your loved ones will cherish for years to come. Keira helped us set the table, and had a great time. If you have little ones, get them involved in cooking and decorating.
If moms were flowers, I’d pick you. The choice of floral arrangements for a tablescape is an essential element that can set the tone for our Mother’s Day meal ideas. We selected a combination of flowers that reflected the spirit of the season and added a touch of freshness to the table. Our floral arrangements included pink and white lilies, fuchsia daisies and white ranunculus. These blooms created a harmonious, cohesive arrangement that complemented the rest of the table setting and elevated the overall dining experience.
Toast to Mom: Delicious Mother’s Day Meal Ideas Paired Perfectly with Still and Sparkling Rosé
Nothing says celebration quite like a glass of rosé champagne, and it’s the perfect way to make your mom feel special and loved on Mother’s Day. The delicate pink hue of the champagne is a beautiful and elegant way to set the tone for your meal, and it’s a perfect complement to a wide range of dishes. When choosing a rosé champagne to serve, look for one that is light and refreshing, with a subtle sweetness and a delicate effervescence. You don’t want the champagne to overpower the food, but rather to enhance its flavors and textures.
We recommend Champagne Vilmart & Cie Rosé, a salmon colored rosé that is rich and elegant with intense red-fruits aromas (strawberries and wild raspberries). This wine is full in body and well-balanced, very pure and full of interesting nuances.
And if you prefer still wine, don’t worry – rosé is just as versatile and delicious. Whether you opt for a crisp and refreshing Provencal rosé or a richer, more complex wine from a different region, you’re sure to find a bottle that pairs perfectly with your Mother’s Day meal. We recommend the Robert Sinskey Vin Gris of Pinot Noir. This is a delicate rosé for all seasons, but we especially like it for spring or pink themed dinners. This salmon colored rosé is vibrant and luscious with aromatics and flavors of wild strawberry and peach skin with notes of juicy winter citrus like orange and Meyer lemon.
So whether you choose to serve sparkling or still rosé, make sure to set a glass at each place setting and raise a toast to the amazing mom in your life. With its beautiful color, delicate flavors, and elegant effervescence, rosé is the perfect way to make any occasion feel special and memorable.
Healthy Mother’s Day Meal Ideas with Atkins Recipes: Baby Kale and Blue Cheese Salad
Don’t kale my vibe. Our Mother’s Day meal ideas begin with a healthy Atkins recipe for a salad. The baby kale and blue cheese salad with hazelnut dressing is a delicious gluten-free option that is sure to impress. Not only is kale a superfood that is packed with vitamins and minerals, but it also has a unique texture and flavor that makes it a great base for salads. The combination of creamy blue cheese and crunchy hazelnuts adds depth and richness to the salad, while the tangy dressing brings everything together with a burst of flavor.
Healthy Mother’s Day Meal Ideas with Atkins Recipes: Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
Welcome to Caulifornia. Our second course of our Mother’s Day meal ideas was a rich, creamy cauliflower mac & cheese. You won’t even miss the pasta. If you are a pasta lover, substitute traditional pasta with spaghetti squash, sweet potato noodles, or zoodles (spiraled zucchini). With fiber-rich, non-starch vegetables, you can even go for guilt-free seconds because these substitutions have less carbs than traditional pasta.
Healthy Mother’s Day Meal Ideas with Atkins Recipes: Parmesan Scallops
I see food and I eat it. For the main course, we feasted on parmesan scallops with broccoli. Fresh seafood is healthy and high in protein. Always make sure to get fresh, not frozen and wild caught, not farm raised seafood. The parmesan scallops paired nicely with the broccoli and tomato sauce. You can use canned tomato sauce but we prefer to make our tomato sauce from scratch. The broccoli was al dente so it gave a great crunch to the scallops.
Healthy Mother’s Day Meal Ideas with Atkins Recipes: Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bites
Love at first bite. A meal is not complete without a bite of sweetness. For dessert, we served caramel cream cheese bites. We made the caramel sauce from scratch using coconut palm sugar. It was the perfect way to conclude the meal.
She’s not a regular mom, she’s a “cool” mom. The Atkins: Eat Right Not Less guidebook is full of amazing appetizer, salad, entree, side and dessert recipes. Overall, a low-carb, low-sugar Mother’s Day meal with seasonal vegetables and fresh seafood can be just as satisfying as a rich, carb-heavy meal. Best of all, you won’t feel the carbs on your waistline. We hope you give our Mother’s Day meal ideas with Atkins recipes a try and surprise your mom with a special meal at home.
