Eating, of course, though getting the perfect snap of what you ate might be a close second. Brunch may be our most-documented meal, thanks to all the beautiful ways you can eat avocado toast and slurp a hangover-curing Bloody Mary. And what makes a great brunch 'gram may have as much to do with your surroundings than the food on your plate.
