For many, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the cornerstone for those new year’s resolutions. BeginningTuesday, January 9, high-protein breakfast-on-the-go arrives at Starbucks Canada with the debut of Sous Vide Egg Bites.

Perfectly cooked, cage-free eggs are prepared using the French "sous vide" technique resulting in a creamy, velvety texture that's bursting with flavour. Starbucks Canada Sous Vide Egg Bites are prepared with simple, premium ingredients, are wheat-free and available in two varieties. And like everything on our menu, Sous Vide Egg Bites are available all day long!

Your local Starbucks will be offering the following two flavours:

Bacon and Gruyere – (Wheat-free) – A foodie delight, even when you're on-the-go. We added aged Gruyere and Monterey Jack cheese, and topped them with Applewood smoked bacon for a delicious, high protein, convenient breakfast. Two Bacon and Gruyere bites have 310 calories and 19 grams of protein.

"Give Peas a Chance" at ARC Dining, Fairmont Waterfront by Jenn Chan

Fairmont Waterfront will always have a special place in my heart. It is the first restaurant that we covered for  JennChanPhotography.com/blog, the food is amazing and we have made some wonderful friends amongst the incredible Fairmont staff. Recently returning from a life changing two month odyssey through Southeast Asia it seemed fitting that one of the first restaurants we visited was Arc! 

 

We arrived bright and early to a bustling lobby, sun shining through the signature mile high Arc windows and Kristyna, one of our favourite Fairmonters, waiting with her signature beaming smile. I ordered a latte and sat back and enjoyed the ambience and pleasant conversation. You will not have a bad meal at Arc, I will personally guarantee that!

I ordered the 2 Egg Breakfast and Jenn had the Pork Belly and Egg and the Spring Pea Toast. Perfectly cooked sunny side up eggs, an excellent chicken sausage, oven fresh bread toasted just right and delicious roasted potatoes. It is as good as it sounds and I know it sounds damn good! The belly has got to be the tastiest part of the pig; flavourful and tender. Combine that with an organic egg and a delightful parsley root purée and I regretted not ordering it myself. Next time! The Spring Pea Toast uses feta cheese, delicious, greens from Arc's own rooftop garden, peas and beans, the same organic egg atop a fresh slice of sourdough bread. I generally don't like peas, but I found this dish very appealing and snuck several bites whenever Jenn turned her back. A couple of glasses of fresh squeezed orange juice to wash everything down and that is a great way to start a day!

The Canada Place area of Vancouver is tourist central. I state that without a hint of negativity; it's a high compliment coming from me! Tourist areas are shining examples of your town that attracts people from literally 1,000's of miles away to take them in. Fairmont Waterfront is in the centre of centre. The rooms are amazing, the pool is absolutely world class and the food, as above, will suit any tastes or budgets. Tell them Jenn sent you and enjoy!
