Dining in bed certainly feels lazy (in a good way), but you don't want to stuff yourself until you'd rather roll onto the floor instead of stand up. For someone who'd prefer lighter breakfast-in-bed fare, don't limit the menu to dry toast and coffee. What's special about that? Instead, choose a lean protein, such as turkey bacon or smoked salmon, in lieu of pork sausage. Then, round out the plate with different flavors and textures that offer satisfying variety.

Suggested Menu:

  • Entrée: Smoked salmon on a toasted bagel with capers
  • Side Dishes: Sliced tomato, red onion, cucumber and cream cheese to garnish the bagel, along with a poached egg
  • Beverages: Coffee and a fruit smoothie

For a Special Touch: Tuck their favorite magazine or newspaper under the plate for some breakfast reading.
