Keep on reading to learn about the health benefits of our brain-powering breakfast options at Chip’s!
Authentic Homemade Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium, which can help improve bone (and teeth) health. It also contains probiotics, which support a healthy bacterial balance in the gut. Served with strawberries, blueberries and bananas, our homemade Greek yogurt is the healthy treat you need to kickstart your metabolism and get the day started!
Oats are super nutritious! They are rich in antioxidants and contain a great amount of fiber! They can lower cholesterol levels which makes oats a very heart-healthy choice! At Chip’s Family Restaurant we serve our steel-cut oats with toasted pecans and fruit to pack all your nutrients into one delicious meal!
Niko’s Omelet is stuffed with turkey bacon, asparagus, tomatoes and low-fat mozzarella, served with one whole wheat pancake. Asparagus is a very nutrient dense vegetable that is packed with antioxidants. It also may help the brain fight cognitive decline. Asparagus delivers folate, which works with vitamin B12 – found to help prevent cognitive impairment. Niko’s Omelet is a smart way to get your fill of asparagus!
Chip’s Healthy Omelet
We can’t forget Chip’s Healthy Omelet! Egg whites filled with any three vegetables and Canadian or turkey bacon. Served with a cup of fresh fruit and wheat-berry toast. Choosing an egg white omelet over a traditional egg omelet has many benefits. Egg yolks contain a large amount of cholesterol which increases your risk of heart disease. Therefore, it may be a good idea to give up yolk and order Chip’s Healthy Omelet!
Mediterranean Breakfast Toast
The Mediterranean Breakfast toast is toasted wheat berry bread with chopped tomato, cucumber, feta cheese and chopped olives with a poached egg. Wheat bread is a much better option than white bread. It is higher in fiber, vitamins B6 and E, magnesium, zinc, folic acid and chromium. The olives topping this toast can also offer you lots of health benefits! Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Studies show that they are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer. Sounds like a good meal to us!
