Get The Scoop: Panera's Hidden Menu



As you know, I've been on a recent kick to shed this serious case of Blogger Butt that I've got goin' on and I was recently let in on one of the best kept secrets (until now) out there!

Panera Bread is now offering special “Hidden Menu” breakfast and lunch options that customers can request in the bakery-cafes. These healthier eating options are here just in time for summer beach season AND for the Foodies Shedding Booties Challenge! 

Panera Bread bakery-cafes nationwide are offering a new lineup of “power foods” with lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and veggies as part of its all-new Hidden Menu. The items won’t be promoted in-store, but MyPanera members and fans/followers on Panera’s social media channels will get the inside scoop... Oh, and well... obviously you too!

The Hidden Menu is an effort to provide customers with a variety of dietary options outside of Panera’s current menu. Check out the options below!
