What could be better than the humble brunch? Firstly, it’s the greatest portmanteau of all time. When you shove the words ‘breakfast’ and ‘lunch’ together, it’s an absolute miracle that we didn’t end up with the likes of ‘lunfast’ - so shoutout to whoever made sure ‘brunch’ was put through. Secondly, and most importantly, it allows us to eat more food if we want to without feeling guilty. Sure, you could skip either lunch or breakfast in honour of brunch, but why would you wanna do that? Just do all three. Thirdly, and perhaps just as important as point two: you’re allowed to drink alcohol with your meal, and nobody can give you a bad time about it.
Now, ‘brunch’ isn’t without its problems. For a start, its very definition is pretty vague, as one restaurant’s lunch option is another restaurant’s evening offering - but at its core, ‘brunch’ should probably contain some sort of egg (or tofu, if you’re going down the vegan route), and a good amount of carbs. Whatever you go with, know this: brunch is perfect, and so are you if you embrace it.
