Corporate breakfast menu ideas

Breakfast, as many people know, is the most important meal of the day. This might sound like a cliché, but it really is important to give your body a kick start with all the best nutrients. If you are hosting a corporate event in the earlier part of the day, it's also important to make sure that you offer everyone a healthy meal.

Many people agree that protein is important to get you through the day. This is why eggs are popular for breakfast. You could include an omelet bar with a variety of fillers from which to choose. Some people prefer egg whites only and others enjoy the whole egg. You should have a variety of meats and veggies too. Some popular omelet ingredients include tomatoes, peppers, olives, and onions. You will need cheese too, of course.

If you already have an omelet bar set up, you could also offer scrambled eggs with or without cheese. Other delicious ingredients like sausage can be added to the eggs as they are tossed around in the pan or on the side if preferred.

Some other options include French toast and pancakes. You could even offer some fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, cheese and cold cuts for those who prefer a cold breakfast. Don't forget to include a few different types of bread and crackers. Biscuits, scones, and muffins are also great to finish off the meal. Finally, don't forget to serve coffee, tea, and fresh fruit juices. Orange juice is one of the top choices for morning meals.

Breakfast options for your employees

When we think about catering meals for our employees, we usually think about lunch and possibly even dinner if employees work late. Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day which makes some wonder why so many people skip this meal. By skipping breakfast or not eating a healthy breakfast, you are compromising your health as well as your mental capacity. As a business owner or manager, you can help improve performance and encourage your team to arrive early by serving a delicious variety of breakfast foods.

Now, breakfast does not always mean bacon and eggs. You want something light, healthy, and foods that will not leave everyone feeling hungry an hour or two later. Some good examples include bagels, muffins, yogurt parfait, fresh fruit, cheeses, cold meats, and a selection of breads. All of these items are easy for your caterer to whip up and deliver first thing in the morning and they will not leave anyone feeling far too bloated to think straight.

Don't forget to include some beverages like coffee, tea, and fresh fruit juice to help make this meal even more fulfilling. Fresh fruit juice is particularly great for hydration as well as nutritional value so make sure that you don't skip these!

Bad foods for a breakfast meeting

Morning meetings can be incredibly productive but they can also get off to a bit of a slow start if everyone has barely had the time to enjoy their cup of coffee. When you serve food at such an early meeting, you will want to choose the right kinds of breakfast foods. As satisfying as some foods might be, they aren’t always good for concentration.

The first kind of food to avoid is cereal that’s high in sugar. Too much sugar might give you a wonderful high but you will come crashing right back down again. Processed foods aren’t advisable due to many health concerns. This is why they are best left off all menus – and not just breakfast.

Tasty treats like donuts and pastries are high in carbohydrates and sugar. Apart from the fact that these foods are extremely unhealthy, they will also give you a sugar rush followed by a crash.

Oily foods like fired eggs, bacon, and sausage might sound like a typical breakfast but they can cause you to feel more sluggish than energetic. Fatty foods require more energy to digest which is why you often feel tired just after eating.

So, instead of serving these foods, stick to low sugar cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, boiled or poached eggs, healthy whole grain breads, and you can even offer dark chocolate as a sweet treat!
