5 Reasons You Should Have Brunch

by Eden on August 26, 2012

If there is anything besides home depot and church that’s synonymous with Sunday its brunch.

Brunch is awesome.

Its up there with other awesome things like

Anyhow, in the spirit of Sunday, I thought I’d count down 5 legit reasons you should be eating brunch:


1. You Will Save Money

I’m a Jew, therefore I know about saving money.

(Its politically correct for me to write the above statement because I’m a Jew and not a racist)

The cool thing about brunch is that its a hybrid of two meals. So you’re getting TWO meals for the price of one. Hence you also feel better about eating stuff that will make anorexics hyperventilate like french toast, bacon, hollandaise, and caloric food in general.



2. You Will Feel Rich

Even thought you’re saving money (see point #1), “going to brunch” is something rich people like to do.

“Oh, me? I’m just sitting here, eating brunch, gazing at my bling, being rich. Typical Sunday.”

Actually, I don’t really know what rich people like to do because I’m not rich. But I do know that brunch is never served at a soup kitchen.



3. You Can Brag About it

You’d think that having a career in food that I eat fabulous, interesting foods, 24/7.

But the reason why I break the “food blogger mold” is that I don’t waste my time writing up an analysis of the turkey sandwich I had the other day.  Do you know how boring the rest of my meals are during the regular week are?

Brunch is the one time you might have your food instagram worthy.



4. You Feel like an “Adult

Eating Cheerios or Pop-Tarts on a Sunday morning doesn’t really scream maturity.

(neither does being so hungover you forgot that you’re an adult, but who’s judging?)

Brunch is that special time you can talk about “interest rates” and “NPR” while sipping on a drink that wasn’t served in a red plastic cup and doesn’t have the word “XXXTRA” or “Lite” on the can. It can also make you feel healthy cause you stick a celery stick in your drink.

Celery? Yep, this drink reeks of health.



5. Anything with the potential to involve waffles is automatically awesome.


I suggest you try my left-over rice waffles when you’re too lazy to go out to brunch and too motivated to defrost one.


Do you like brunch? Why? What’s your favorite brunch food?

Brunch foods are my favorites. Really. Just not at brunchtime. I kind of hate the concept of having to get up and look pretty and spend money on a meal I have no desire to eat until 5pm at earliest…and in my hood I tend to feel inadequate at brunch next to the hipsters who somehow stayed up all night and still look smashing even when hungover…
But to each their own. I will gladly go for brunch if I have it in the evening. Breakdin. Then breakdancing. Or not. All the maple syrup I’d consume would make me a bit too lethargic for dance…


Eden August 26, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I don’t dance. I’m a Jewish white chick so I think “breakdin” might be a little dangerous. But who knows what could happen with a mimosa.


Ellen August 27, 2012 at 1:22 am

Ha! Yeah, and a Bloody Mary might be even more dangerous. I feel like this needs to happen.


Abby August 26, 2012 at 5:27 am

Nope. I’m not a bruncher for a couple of reasons. 1) I rarely eat out because I’m cheap and like to make my own food but mostly because 2) I like to eat. Often. Combining two meals into one seems like a missed opportunity to eat. Give me both breakfast and lunch, not all in one shot.
However, I LOVE breakfast foods and will eat them any time of the day.

Augh I haven’t “brunched” in forever…mainly because I’m a hermit and never leave my house unless I have to (that, and I usually work on Sundays). But brunch does = awesome.


Eden August 26, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Brunch has that amazing capability to un-hermit people. Or at least make you realize how wonderful going out is.

I love going for brunch. My friends and I go every Sunday in the winter. Although I wouldn’t say it saves money because brunch buffets are usually stupid expensive.


Eden August 26, 2012 at 4:40 pm

Yea, I hate that the buffets are so expensive and you’re 100% right, they are STUPID expensive. They don’t really feature anything that’s really expensive cause you usually have to pay extra for the booze and its usually just some fruit, waffles, and eggs. I guess in the winter, the fruit can get expensive, but the rest is cheap for restaurants to make.


Daniela August 26, 2012 at 6:14 pm

seriously. people only have brunch because it makes them feel like grown ups


Eden August 26, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Then they have sex in the afternoon to burn it off. Doesn’t get more adult than that.

you forgot that’s it’s the one socially acceptable time to daydrink! somehow champagne at 10am is okay as long as it’s sunday and you’re also eating lox.


Eden August 28, 2012 at 9:16 am

Oh, I was sure the day drink was a given. And yes, lox is always a bonus.

I’m Episcopalian. Brunch is the Eighth Sacrament.

And it’s eggs benedict for me, please!
