Restaurant Breakfast that's Healthy? Sure! @PaneraBread

I love breakfast but it's never easy to eat out for breakfast when you're trying to be healthy. I have to say - Panera really impressed me with this one - they have healthy choices, a whole site for their nutrition AND a secret menu?! 


I don't often go out for breakfast now that I'm on Weight Watchers - but I was out and about for a meeting so I stopped in to work for a bit and have a bite. I resisted the Baked Egg Souffles - which was NOT easy and the Cinnamon Crunch Bagel - again - not easy!

I went for the Mediterranean Egg White Sandwich (11 WW+) - it was filled with roasted tomatoes, spinach, egg white, vermont white cheddar and pesto. It was delicious - juicy, filling, warm and hearty. I was really surprised at how much I liked it!

For comparison:
  • Mediterranean Egg White Sandwich - 11 points
  • Sausage & Gouda Souffle - 15 points
  • Cinnamon Crunch Bagel - 11 points (I'd want butter or cream cheese in addition)
  • Power Breakfast Egg Bowl with Steak - 7 points (whaaaaaa????) 

So - I made a pretty good choice - but wish I'd known about that secret menu! Dammit!

Looks good - right?
