Doughnuts—they leave a hole in your soul
Yes, they’re delicious, but all-day-long satisfying and healthy? Not so much. (Here are some nutritionist-approved doughnut alternatives.) Chef Deb Gangale, of Claude’s at the Southampton Inn, won’t go near these sticky treats on a brunch table. “Although they’re a sweet, sugary, delicious indulgence, they also tend to be one of the least healthy brunch choices. I like to lean towards healthier, more savoury brunch items, because they sustain me without causing a mid-day sugar crash,” she explains.
