How many of us have been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Or, maybe we are finding ourselves repeating this same message from our childhood.
According to Heather Arndt Anderson, author of ‘Breakfast’, this most important meal of the day was socially and morally frowned upon until about the 17th Century. Thanks to Queen Elizabeth’s love for the first meal of the day, breakfast gradually grew as the most important meal to kickstart your day.
Since then, numerous studies have shown that eating a healthy breakfast helps:
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Gives more strength for physical activity
- Lower cholesterol levels
So, what are the key elements for a healthy breakfast?
- Protein – helps you feel fuller for longer
- Whole Grains – help you stay sharp and focused throughout the morning
- Fruit & Vegetables – adds vitamins, minerals and filling fibre to your breakfast
Fresh, natural ingredients are the basis throughout our menus here at Sage Café Restaurant & Pizzeria, starting the day with our breakfast menu. Our head chef Nawaraj and Breakfast Manager, Andy have put together an amazing selection of dishes, including healthy choice options and traditional brekky favourites.
When it comes to protein, we have it covered – eggs all ways, including our award-winning classic, Eggs Benedict (voted #2 for best EB on the Gold Coast!). Then there’s the Sage Favourites, such as our delicious breakfast wrap filled with bacon, scrambled egg, spinach, tomato, swiss cheese, avocado, jalapenos and BBQ sauce, on fresh pita bread.
If you prefer a vegan choice you will be delighted with our dish of grilled tofu, hummus, avocado, baby spinach, mushroom and tomato on gluten free bread.
And, for a lighter healthy choice we recommend our wild berry bowls, chia and coconut puddings, organic quinoa or our brekky crumble.
Of course, breakfast would not be complete without your favourite morning cuppa. Click here to browse our breakfast beverage menu, including our range of coffees, teas, smoothies and freshly squeezed juices.
