Corner Bakery invited me out to try their new Superfoods menu items. Since I have recently started a journey for a healthier me I felt that the timing was perfect. I love the Corner Bakery and their sandwiches are amazing, but it is a huge plus to have healthier options to dig into. The new items on the menu are tasty and had greatc alorie counts (yup I count calories. LOL)
The event featured Corner Bakery’s food guru Ric Scicchitano. He gave a live cooking demonstration on making the new items. He was very knowledgeable and broke down the benefits of Kale and Quinoa. I bet you didn’t know that Kale is high in fiber, iron, and calcium. Did you know that Quinoa is a complete protein with all 9 essential amino acids? I learned so much and I am now planning to increase my intake of kale.
Enough of my rambling let me tell you what the new menu items are!
Toasted Sesame Kale- Fresh kale, shredded carrots and toasted sesame seeds with ginger soy dressing. it was very light and refreshing!
Quinoa Salad- Quinoa, corn, black beans, tomatoes, jalapeños, onions, and cilantro with a zesty lime vinaigrette. I still have to wrap my mind around quinoa, but this dish was pretty good. Lots of flavors.
Corner Bakery is actually bringing an item back to the menu, the Southwest Avocado Wedge and this was my favorite at the tasting. It features fresh avocado, roasted corn, tomato salsa and tortilla strips. This dish was simple yet carried so many flavors, with a hint of heat.
Ric also made us the two new smoothies that will be rolling out as well. The Orange Carrot Ginger smoothie and the Four Berry smoothie. The smoothies are 100% real fruit, it serves for four fruit servings per drink and there is no sugar added. You also have the options to add 6 grams of yogurt protein boost!
What I love about all the new items is that they will all be made to order. These new items will be ready to be order starting Tuesday April, 29th at your local Corner Bakery. To check out more from Corner Bakery visit their website.
To celebrate I am giving away $100 dollars in Corner Bakery gift certificates! I will randomly pick 10 of my Facebook Fans so make sure you are a fan! Good luck and happy eating!
