Healthy breakfast catering ideas

Fruit platters are the perfect healthy breakfast treat, especially when paired with healthy baked goods like whole wheat muffins. They’re packed full of Vitamin C which will help your team stave off the cold and flu season and stay healthy.

2. DIY granola, yogurt and fruit bar

If you live in Boulder or Denver, you’re in luck because we’ve partnered with Prosperoats. This local breakfast catering joint has nailed healthy yogurt bowls down. They serve up Greek yogurt bowls with fresh honey and homemade granola. They have steel cut oat bowls or quinoa oat bowls with fresh fruit and warm spices. They have acai bowls with dried fruit, nuts and seeds.

Do yourself a favour and plan ahead, choose the team order and let your employees pick what they want for breakfast.

In Toronto? Don’t miss Astarté Fresh Yogurt Bar. Try their Greek Yogurt (0% Fat) with 100 percent Ontario honey, walnuts and all natural granola. You’ll thank us. Or go bulk and let us set up a DIY yogurt bar for you.

3. Fresh-pressed juices

Think of fresh-pressed juices as the fresh fruit platter equivalent but contained in one easy drink.

Rawsome in Atlanta, for instance, makes delicious raw, vegan juices that are packed with all of the vitamins, minerals and essentials to boost your team’s productivity and get them started—without weighing them down. These are fresh and refreshing. Go for a team order if you don’t want to have to choose from the brilliant array of fresh-pressed vegetable and fruit drinks. Let your employees decide ahead of time.

In Denver? Don’t miss World Juice Bar. Your team will thank us for these premium cold-pressed juices.

In Vancouver? Check out Vancouver’s special, The Juice Truck. You’re welcome.

4. Delicious cafe-style coffee

Rather than have your entire office leave mid-morning to grab to-go coffees, why not take them on a local coffee tour by bringing the best into the office? For example, Lucky Lab Coffee Company in Austin specializes in coffee and worked with us to create menu items specifically for modern offices like yours. Plus they have treats like muffins and homemade pop-tarts.

In Vancouver? Try Quantum Coffee Vancouver’s freshly made and delicious coffee.

5. Breakfast sandwiches

We can’t talk about breakfast in Vancouver without mentioning Yolks, a breakfast catering staple. Depending on what you order, you can find so many deliciously healthy options. Take the Portobello Mushroom Egg Sandwich, as an example. Okay, it has real hollandaise on a double toasted English muffin, but there’s a perfectly poached free-range egg, fresh arugula, and mushrooms on top. Plus you could order a Fresh Cut Fruit Platter (Serves 10-12) with seasonal fruit, lemon, honey, and mint. Win-win.

6. Healthy breakfast smoothies

Smoothies are a perfect breakfast catering idea for your on-the-go colleagues. They are healthy, easy, delicious and filling, especially if you choose the right ingredients. Take Bolt Fresh Bar in Toronto, for example. Their Almond Delight smoothie is packed with essential fatty-oil-heavy seeds, spices and proteins to fill you up for the morning. That one has almonds, cinnamon, maca, vanilla, chia, banana, almond milk and, of course, being Canadian, maple syrup. Yum.

7. Breakfast wrap

Breakfast wraps are always a huge hit among hungry staff, trust us. Let’s look at Vancouver’s Peqish, for this purpose. They have a Fiesta Breakfast Wrap (which you have to order with a bit more notice) that is very good. It has their housemade roasted egg topped with green and red peppers, black beans, corn, carrots, red onion, vine-ripened tomatoes, cilantro, and pickled jalapenos. Savoury, spicy and healthy. Yes, please.

8. Hearty brunch platter

Having a late breakfast meeting in the office that goes over lunch? Why not try a brunch platter with all the delicious fixings we know and love for breakfast? Flying Biscuit Cafe in Atlanta, for example, makes a southern style Flying Biscuit Power Breakfast for groups of ten or more. It’s packed with all the protein and goodness to get your team through the workday.

Think farm-fresh scrambled eggs, chicken breakfast sausage, crisp turkey bacon (which is leaner and healthier than pork bacon) and creamy southern-style grits over roasted rosemary potatoes. Plus they throw in their famous Flying Biscuits with cranberry apple butter. Okay, maybe this isn’t super healthy, but skip lunch and bring in a vegetable platter for the afternoon.

9. Whole grain muffins

Muffins were made for breakfast catering. They’re quick and easy to eat and—when you choose the right ones—can be healthy and good for you. They have a bad reputation because many of them are high in calories, fat, and sugar. But go for whole grain muffins and ones with value with nuts, seeds, vegetables, and fruits. For example, The Alternative Cafe in Toronto has delicious homemade carrot coconut muffins and Mast Coffee Bar in Toronto has a seasonal blueberry bran muffin that is full of antioxidants and good-for-you fiber.

Good morning, breakfast!
