Chick-fil-a breakfast menu gets a few tasty additions and I got to try them all. Read more…
Last week I was invited by Housewives in the City to join a group of local bloggers and media personalities to sample the new menu items at the Chick-fil-A Seven Corners. It's no secret that I LOVE Chick-fil-A, so given the opportunity to eat more chick'n and network with other mom bloggers was a treat.
The exclusive event was hosted by WASH-FM’s morning show personality, Chilli Amar. I was lucky enough to be seated beside her for the tasting, and we swapped stories about raising toddlers and buying houses in Northern Virginia.
Chick-fil-a Breakfast Menu
But let's talk about the real reason we were all there…the food! As a part of an exclusive four-city roll-out, Chick-fil-A is introducing unique, higher protein, lower calorie options on its breakfast menu in Washington, DC, New Jersey, San Diego, and Columbia, South Carolina.
First up, there's the Berry Protein Blend. A mix of yogurt, berries, chia seeds and ancient grains, this yummy smoothie is packed with 23 grams of protein, and only 340 calories. Honey Brown Sugar Granola and a bit of Chick-fil-A's signature Icedream® top it off for a tasty way to start your day.
If you love a little bit of everything for breakfast then the Hash Brown Scramble is the way to go. My favorite new menu item comes in a bowl or a burrito and you can choose between Chick-fil-A nuggets or sausage. Along with Monterey Jack cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, and Chick-fil-A hash browns, this is a hearty meal that will satisfy any morning hunger. The bowl comes in at 450 calories with 30 grams of protein, while the burrito is 650 calories and boasts 31 grams of protein. It's served with a Jalapeno Salsa in case you want to kick it up a notch.
Chick-fil-A Moms will love this!
Looking for a lighter option, the Egg White Grill Bowl offers plenty of protein with fewer calories. Freshly scrambled egg whites, sliced grilled chicken and Monterey Jack cheddar cheese make this a great breakfast choice, and with only 180 calories it's guilt-free too.
But Chick-fil-A Seven Corners didn't end our event with just an introduction to these all-star new meals. We were treated to a few bites of all their other familiar favorites as well! While I am of course no stranger to the nuggets and waffle fries (my son's favorite meal) I did get to enjoy them with one of the yummy new sauces, Sweet and Spicy Sriracha.
If you haven't had the Superfood side yet, you're missing out. Chopped Broccolini® and kale blend, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with flavorful dried sour cherries. It's delicious, and one of the few green foods I can get my toddler to eat.
And I found a new caffeinated obsession…. because toddlers, amiright! The Frosted Coffee is pure heaven, like the perfect mommy milkshake. I could go for one (or three!) right now. Actually, I think I might.
See you at Chick-fil-A!
