Columbus Coffee have just introduced their Lifestyle Favourites* range, full of healthy food options. This range caters to gluten free, refined sugar free, raw, dairy free and Paleo diets. There are multiple locations across New Zealand with each cafe having at least two cabinet options available and some will also have cooked kitchen menu options available too.
For those wanting to dine in perhaps for a Sunday brunch I would recommend the Paleo Crepes with Mixed Berries & Coconut and Paleo Breakfast. They also have a large selection of cabinet options which you can choose to eat dining in. You're spoilt for choice with cabinet items like the Chia Bircher, Bliss Balls, Chia Seed & Coconut Pudding, Paleo Egg Wraps, Thai Chicken Stuffed Kumara (Sweet Potato) or Mushrooms, Mexican Meat Muffin, Raw Carrot Cake Pops and Paleo Bacon & Egg Muffins^. All perfect to grab and go also.
Check out the options I've tried below:
This dish is built using free range poached eggs, salmon, portobello mushrooms, cress, fresh tomato, avocado and spinach. It's beautifully presented with an abundance of food. If you're hungry, this is the dish that will be sure to fill your belly. It's full of good fats such as eggs, avocado and salmon to keep you fuelled for the day.
Made with a combination of tapioca, almond and egg, these Paleo crepes will fool you as they taste like the real deal. They're refined sugar free, served with berries and honey for natural sweetness. They're perfect when you're wanting something a little more sweet for breakfast.
Chia Seed & Coconut Pudding
There's nothing better than when two of my favourite meals are combined and this Chia Seed & Coconut Pudding is dessert and breakfast in one. This is perfect for when you're wanting to treat yourself to a something decadent without feeling guilty. It's vegan, dairy free and gluten free.
Paleo Bacon & Egg Muffin
Their Paleo Bacon & Egg Muffin is a great snack option when you're feeling peckish and is a perfect match with your morning coffee. These mini muffins are like the inside of a bacon and egg pie with a fresh addition of pesto and tomato. I like to make these for myself for breakfast so it's nice to see them in the cabinet of my local cafe. These are dairy free, Paleo and gluten-free.
The bliss balls are made using a variety of fruit and nuts such as dates, sultanas, orange zest, walnuts and almonds. These ones were rolled chia seed, pumpkin seeds and goji berries.
