Panera’s Hidden Power Menu

By Kelli Swensen, Dietetics Student, Sargent College


The Center for Science in the Public Interest recently published a short piece on Panera Bread’s new food promotion: a hidden “power” menu. Initially released only in New York, as of January of 2013 the nutrition-packed menu is now available nationwide. Each item contains filling protein as well as plenty of vegetables.

At breakfast you can order a Power Breakfast Egg White Bowl with Roasted Turkey or a Power Breakfast Egg Bowl with Steak. Both also contain fresh vegetables.



At lunch and dinner there are four Power salad options:


  1. Mediterranean Chicken Salad

  2. Mediterranean Roasted Turkey Salad

  3. Chicken Hummus Bowl

  4. Steak Lettuce Wraps



For complete descriptions of each Power menu option head on over to Panera’s website. Tried one of these? We’d love to know what you thought! Leave us a comment below.
