【去cafe hopping 食咩好？】最近很多地方都開了林林總總的咖啡店，掀起了一股去cafe hopping 的熱潮。大家除了會去打卡之外，通常都少不免會叫一些小食或者飲品，不知不覺間就吸取了過多的熱量。那難道我們到咖啡店就不要吃東西了嗎？那又不用煩惱，只要我們懂得選擇，其實去咖啡店都可以吃得健康。
【What should we pick during cafe hopping?】There are many newly opened cafes in Hong Kong recently, a cafe hopping trend has been brought up over social media. People love to go to cafes not only for the nicely presented dishes and drinks, also for the nice photos to share on their social media. However, some dishes on the menu are high in fat, sugar and calories content. Above are some healthier options that are available in the cafes. Therefore, we don’t have to worry about gaining weight while enjoying these delicious dishes.
We can always find desserts like cakes, cookies and scones in cafes, these sweet treats are mostly high in fat and sugar content. A piece of tiramisu has 510 kcal, a piece of mille crepe cake has 450 kcal, and a piece of waffle has 220 kcal. Although waffle seems to be a better option, the syrup and toppings on the waffle also increase the calories and sugar content intake. A plain bagel and with a moderate amount of honey or jam will be a better option when craving for something sweet.
Moreover, there are some savoury dishes such as salad mixed with dressing, pasta with cream sauce, scrambled egg made with a large amount of oil, these dishes also have a high fat content.
Therefore, we can try to make healthier options when we go to cafe hopping next time. Avoid ordering the pasta dishes with cream or pesto sauce, as a large amount of butter and cheese are added during cooking. For sandwiches, avoid ordering processed meat and dressing, that will limit the sodium and fat intake.
In conclusion, ‘choose smart, eat smart’ can help us stay healthy and enjoy the delicious food at the same time.
