How To Choose Breakfast In A Cafe?
Sundays are always my favourite day of the week. Waking up thinking the alarm is moments from going off only to then realise its Sunday and you can sleep in. And then when you do wake knowing a perfect cafe brunch is the first order of the day.
Eating at a cafe every weekend does have its pitfalls however. Not everything on a cafe breakfast board is healthy. Here’s some cafe do’s and don’ts.
|Do enjoy||Don’t have too often|
|Spreads – avocado, nut butters, honey, vegemite||Spreads – butter, sour cream, cream cheese|
|Eggs – omelettes, frittatas, scrambled, poached or boiled||Eggs – fried and any covered in hollandaise or béarnaise sauce – keep for the birthday celebration|
|Breads – toast (multigrain, sourdough, fruit), English muffins, crumpets topped with avocado ,tomato, spinach, mushrooms or baked beans||Pancakes topped with butter, syrup, cream or ice creamHash browns|
|Meats – bacon eye pieces, smoked salmon, sardines||Meats – full bacon rasher, breakfast sausages|
|Cheeses – cottage and ricotta||Cheeses – brie, camembert, fetta|
|Coffee – served in coffee cups||Coffee – with added syrups, cream or in large serves|
