Most Important Meal of the Day

Breakfast has always been touted as the most important meal of the day but it is also the most overlooked.  Many people simple grab a prepackaged muffin, visit Dunkin Donuts or enjoy the breakfast pastry known as Pop Tarts.  Living in New Jersey, we are known to enjoy the delicacy of a Taylor Ham, Egg and Cheese sandwich in the morning.  All of these things are quick but on the unhealthy side.  On the weekends, many of our pool members come as soon as we open in the morning meaning they are often getting their breakfast on the go as well.

As we look back on 2018 and strive to improve our offerings for 2019, there may be an opportunity to offer a healthy breakfast menu at our pool snack bar.  There was actually a pool member this year who would swim her morning laps, then bring some healthy breakfast food from home and ask the snack bar to prepare them.  While an unorthodox arrangement, it shows that there may be a viable audience for this healthy breakfast menu.  Simple things such as egg white omelettes, breakfast parfaits, yogurts and whole grain breads could provide a healthy start to the day while providing the energy for an action packed day at the pool or wherever your summer adventures will take place that day.
