A healthy breakfast choice for you ! 3 egg whites, 2 turkey sausage patties, 3 slices of melon and rye toast for only $6.49!
February is heart healthy month, after all, and there’s no better time to feature our heart healthy breakfast in our cafes. What makes this breakfast heart healthy? Riboflavin, that’s essential for cell growth, is abundant in egg whites. Besides this, the calorie content of egg whites is as little as 20 calories and these calories aren’t derived from harmful fats but from proteins, sodium, and carbohydrates. The folate present in egg whites is also good for the health of your heart. There are as many as 40 different types of proteins present in egg whites that are essential for your health.
Although eggs are regarded as rich sources of cholesterol, egg whites have almost no cholesterol. However, a substance found in egg whites can negate the adverse effects of the cholesterol present in egg yolks. This makes the consumption of a whole egg wholesome and not harmful. The proteins present in egg whites are easily digested by the body. They also provide essential amino acids to the body.
Our customers love having this low calorie, heart healthy option for breakfast on our menus, especially as we are now out of the Holidays and into some good healthy eating. I often hear it from the stores all the time, and the nice part is it’s cooked to order on the spot. Fresh and delicious!
You can get this special during all hours of our café operation without exception. This meal is available in our Rolling Hills, South Pasadena, Manhattan Beach, Westchester, Newport Beach, La Jolla, and Palm Desert locations. While you visit the store, come early, have some breakfast and spend some time to do your shopping afterwards and you will have checked two things off your list.
