Possibly, Brighton could start the trend of combining breakfast and fitness outside of a gym. So we visited them, hoping that a healthy breakfast would be in store, and perhaps a change in our lifestyle would follow.
Known as LoveFit Cafe, the restaurant combines healthy, gourmet cuisine with a touch of savoury goodness.
If it weren’t for the lack of exercise equipment and weights, LoveFit Cafe could very well be a gym. The walls are adorned with plasma screens advertising offers available inside and outside of the cafe. Promotional material adorns all surfaces, while a notice board displays information about fitness classes and fun runs. The chairs are comparable to those found in gym cafes and have a capacity of twelve, but there is also al fresco dining in the square for those who can brave the weather.
Healthy breakfast menu
It is a fact that lean meats are used in each of the UK’s leading high-protein restaurants in their meals to ensure customers remain trim.
Lovefit Cafe’s menu caters specifically to these customers with dishes like “Immune Boost Porridge”, which is a berry-infused porridge with honey, and Greek yoghurt, plus the “Power Porridge” loaded with 20g of protein, available for seating or takeout.
A breakdown of calories, protein, carbohydrates, and fat in each meal is listed on the menu so that you can keep track of what you are eating. We have observed this in a few other cafes we have visited!
On top of their breakfast menu, they also have two pages of fresh fruit juices and smoothies prepared at the spot. You can choose from an endless array of options, each providing a unique health benefit.
Even with all the healthy choices, there is still room for those who don’t normally engage in gym activities. The menu includes nicely grilled chicken breasts, bacon rolls, and club sandwiches. Lovefit Cafe also serves delicious brownies and pancakes.
The taste of Lovefit
I chose the Lovefit Breakfast Club as it reminded me of the fried sandwiches I used to make as a teen, back when I didn’t care about calories. Typical ingredients in this sandwich are low-fat sausage, low-fat bacon, tomato slices, fat-free mayo, a low-sodium HP sauce topped with a sunny side up. A greasy breakfast like this is almost as good as any I’ve ever eaten, and the portions are pretty substantial.
I was completely in awe of the ‘Detox’ juice, which combines apple, lime, and celery. Celery is rarely used in drinks, but when it’s combined with apple, it brings out its true flavours. And the lime gives it a zesty edge. A dash of white rum would have made this the perfect drink to quench your thirst in the summertime!
Wine is another specialty of this location. Great teas, chai lattes, and fresh juices are available too.
There is a lot to like about Lovefit Cafe. Breakfast is tasty and affordable, and the environment is motivating. A return visit is also worthwhile to sample another of the outstanding juices they offer. This may be worth a try if you’re interested in ditching the breakfast guilt in favour of a healthier lifestyle.
