Montreal food indulgence and healthy choices part 3


      In our Montreal days, we used to wake up late and loved to have full power pack brunch to kick-start a power packed day. Then the copper brunch came across. The theme intrigued me. Plant-based, environment-friendly and nutrient dense food in a fast-paced setting is convenient in a modern day setting, whether you are visiting a place or in your regular lifestyle. In a casual setting, Copper brunch menu has global-inspired organic natural and gluten-free options including bowel, sandwich, wrap, soup and healthy dessert.


      I opted for Aristle -with non-GMO basil balsamic vinaigrette. Sweet potato, organic spinach hummus, bruschetta, black olives, lettuce, beets, carrot, broccoli, organic sprouted mung beans, spiced chickpeas, non-GMO hemp seeds. I love the whole combination of this bowel definitely innovative, super healthy and delicious with the array of colorful veggies. Yet, my minor grip was the food should look little fresher.


      For our kids, we opted for Southwest wrap scramble - Organic tofu scramble, mozzarella style shreds, lettuce, tomato, spicy South West sauce. It almost tasted like egg scramble, enticing and filling at the same time. Crunchy vegetable with tofu added mild favor ideal for tender taste buds.  Husband opted for Unity falafel wrap - organic spelled wrap, carrot keftedes, romaine lettuce, red cabbage, carrot, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, non-GMO aioli sauce. This is something you definitely need to try whenever you are in Copper brunch. Incredibly filling, flavourful and healthy at the same time.


      Wheather I am home or traveling my Indian spicy taste buds often crave for spicy food. When it came to drinks in Copper brunch, I opted for Smoothie Gandhi- Non-GMO spinach, organic turmeric, non-GMO pineapple, non-GMO banana, ginger, lime, organic orange juice. I have never come across something like this whether the name or the taste. Never knew the refreshing food, and a
hint of spices do such a wonder in your taste bud. A must try and get ready to tantalize your taste buds.


      When it comes to dessert, most people nowadays tend to let it go because of the sugar. What if your dessert is designed in a healthy twist with no compromise on taste. Yes, that's what I felt when I tried dessert in Copper brunch. I tried Cashew lime cheesecake - Raw cashews, freshly pressed limes, organic coconut, organic coconut milk, organic coconut oil, organic raw cane sugar, filtered water, dates, organic vanilla extract, natural sea salt, organic chlorophyll. A creamy, succulent taste in every bite. And then Chocolate zucchini brownie - Dairy free chocolate chips, cane juice, brown rice flour, zucchini, cocoa, Earth Balance buttery spread, organic soy milk, potato starch, non-GMO canola oil, organic flax seeds, non-GMO hemp seeds, tapioca syrup. That was my kids favorite whipped and moist brownie and quite filling and is shareable with two. . .
