Healthy Breakfast Options


Healthy Pear, Cinnamon & Chia Smoothie ~ a complete breakfast in a glass

People who eat breakfast are more likely to maintain a healthy weight, but that doesn't mean all breakfast options are good for you! It can be challenging to make healthy breakfast choices from our breakfast menu when you're tempted with calorie-laden choices such as strattas, waffles and French toast. But healthy breakfast recipes can taste great and at HideAway Haven we give you plenty of healthy options.

Eggs - We use Shipleys Farm Eggs which are true beyond organic and free rage.  Eggs provide 13 essential vitamins and minerals for just 70 calories. They are a fantastic source of high-quality protein, and help you stay full throughout the day.  Eggs are a good way to start the day because they provide the energy you need to get through busy days!  Try our poached eggs or scrambled egg wraps served with locally smoked free range ham.

Grains are one of the healthiest options to have as part of a nutritious breakfast. Whole, unprocessed or minimally processed grains are a fabulous source of complex carbohydrates, fibre and protein. Grains break down more slowly than refined/processed carbs like sugary cereals and keep us full and energized for long periods of time.  Try our own home made toasted muesli full of nuts and dried fruit.  Sweetened with our local honey. Quinoa is the new superfood and we have a variety of options available.  Ask about our coconut quinoa served with toasted almonds, bananas and maple syrup - perfect for those who are lactose and gluten intolerant.


Dairy - yogurt-based parfaits and smoothies are a great source of calcium, protein and vitamin B. Try our fresh fruit parfait - fresh fruit topped with yoghurt and our home made meusli. Or one of our smoothies, such as Pear, Cinnamon & Chia or Strawberry & Apricot using locally produced fruit.  When we have our Yard 86 milk available, we make our own yoghurt.

If you want a healthy start to your day we have plenty of options for you to choose from.
