While you may not be celebrating Mother’s Day with brunch at a restaurant or at a larger family gathering, now, more than ever, it’s important to honour mum, and all the roles she’s taken on recently: teacher, chef, activities coordinator and purveyor of puzzles, to name a few.

I’ve put together some low carb Mother’s Day recipes that are delicious and easy for kids and dads to prepare and enjoy, while giving mum a day off.


Whether you’re treating mum to breakfast in bed or you’re letting her sleep in until brunch, you can take your pick from these sweet and savory main dishes. Round out her meal with a side of bacon or sausage.

Let mum relax over a leisurely lunch or a delicious dinner with these recipes. Be the grill master, and showcase your skills with chicken, steaks or salmon. Have the kids help prep, plus they can make dessert!
