Surprise your mom with the nourishing gift of bee pollen – not to be confused with airborne pollen which causes allergies and hay fever. Bee pollen is considered on of natures most completely nourishing foods as it contains nearly all nutrients required by humans. Top a smoothie with bee pollen or add as a topping to homemade pancakes or french toast!

Bee Pollen

A tablespoonful of bee pollen contains about 45 calories and consists of 35% protein, 55% carbohydrate, 2% fatty acids and 3% minerals and vitamins. Bee collected pollen also reportedly contains 8 flavonoids, at least 11 carotenoids, vitamins C, E, all the Bs, all free amino acids, minerals, more than 100 enzymes and several growth regulators.*

For those without a little prowess in the kitchen, kick start your Mother’s Day with brunch in the city at Bar C or The Ranche or in the Rockies at Deer Lodge, Emerald Lake Lodge and Buffalo Mountain Lodge.

Bar C is featuring a three course set menu for $35 and is opening an hour earlier than usual! Tantalize your taste buds with a choice of  serrano ham, melon and black pepper or smoked salmon, onion jam and toast as a first course before stepping up the flavour with a spinach, tomato and goat cheese quiche, breakfast B.L.T or pork belly served on a bed of french toast topped with 2 fried eggs, tomato confit and basil. Finish your meal with house made doughnuts served with a spicy chocolate dipping sauce or fruit sorbet. Reservations accepted!
