The breakfast menu is refreshingly not like your typical coffee and pastry shop where mostly sugary carbs are sold. Café Bernardo offers a rather delightful array of wholesome foods including cage-free eggs, free-range meats, herbs, vegetables and fruits in addition to the delicious trans-fat free pastries. I typically order the Vine-Ripened Tomato Omelette, skip the potatoes and toast, and have a fresh cup of coffee. It’s the perfect way to start my morning: strong, alert, and full of energy.
To continue fat burning during the day, I choose wisely. My go-to lunch meals at Café Bernardo are typically: the chopped chicken salad (with added nuts), a lettuce-wrapped burger with avocado and tomato, or their seasonal Salmon Salad with romaine, arugula, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and grilled corn. Whether I have a craving for chicken, beef, or fish, Café Bernardo serves it up the way I ask; fresh, with a smile, and on time. Don’t be afraid to ask for additions or substitutions to your order if needed – they are very accommodating.
Tomorrow when you are thinking about breakfast as you head out the door, instead of the usual high calorie coffee and pastry where you can spend $$$, head to my go-to restaurant where you can nourish your body and save $$$. By eating a nutritious and delicious breakfast and lunch, you will likely feel better, look better, and be more productive in life.
You’ll just have to wait for my next post on what’s for dinner!
