Jack In The Box Adds Grilled FRENCH TOAST To Brunchfast Menu


If given the choice between breakfast or any other meal of the day, we’d choose breakfast without a second thought. Unless, that is, brunch is on the table.

Jack in the Box recently launched their new Brunchfast menu late last year. The fast food chain’s amalgam of breakfast and lunch items made our hearts grow three sizes when they finally hit the nationwide menu as a 24-hour offering.

Now, a new gladiator has stepped into Jack’s Brunchfast ring: Grilled French Toast.

The new menu item features three pieces of grilled French toast topped with maple syrup and served with either strips of bacon or a sausage patty.

For those looking for a sweet alternative to those mini pancakes, this new menu item might be just the thing to shake up your taste buds. The new Grilled French Toast will be available at all participating Jack in the Box locations.

The Simple Pleasures of the New Grilled Chimichurri Salmon Dishes from Rubio’s


Working at a food blog, you come to understand what will and won’t do well on your site. You actively seek out the ostentatious, the bizarre, the HOLY SHIITAKE MUSHROOMS, BATMAN. Little by little, your writing becomes less about celebrating food and more about gawking at it (which is, of course, its own brand of fun). Every once in a while though, you find something that – while not bacon wrapped, nutella-stuffed or Sriracha-drizzled – nevertheless deserves to be shared, on no merit other than sounding absolutely incredible.

Say it with me now. Grilled. Salmon. Chimichurri. Is your mouth watering yet?

Rubio’s, the San Diego-based chain who brought $1 Fish Taco Tuesdays into the mainstream, is now offering new Sustainable Grilled Chimichurri Salmon burritos, tacos and salads for a limited time. As the press release details:

“. . . each item features sustainable, grilled Atlantic salmon topped with Rubio’s chimichurri sauce, a savory blend of chopped basil, parsley, chives, garlic and olive oil. The mouthwatering burrito and taco include fire-roasted corn and Fresno chiles. The burrito comes complete with black beans and salsa fresca, while the taco is topped with crunchy spring mix, butter lettuce and crema. Providing an even lighter option is the salad, made with fresh spring mix and butter lettuce tossed in a chimichurri balsamic vinaigrette dressing and topped with fresh sliced avocados, Fresno chiles, crema and fire-roasted corn.”

This summer, do yourself a favor, at least once. Put down the Waffle Taco and pick up something that sounds good and is kind of good for you. If nothing else, it’ll leave you feeling good about yourself, so you’re free to sneak in that extra Frosty cone for dessert.

Coming Soon — GRILLED Chicken Nuggets at Chick-fil-A

For you health-nuts out there, Chick-fil-A will soon have Grilled Chicken Nuggets as a part of their kid’s menu. Although it’s not clear why the bite-sized nuggets are a “kid’s menu exclusive”, Chick-fil-A will supposedly accommodate adults who plan on ordering them. There’s definitely a gap between a 4-piece of grilled chicken nuggets compared to its fried counter-part, which boasts only 80 calories and 1 gram of fat versus 130 calories and 6 grams of fat.

With the rise of healthy fast food options, I guess you could say that I’m not surprised by this new addition. Expect to see these soon at a Chick-fil-A near you!

Grilled Watermelon with Yogurt

No meat on a grill?!? Crazy right? Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but this doesn’t make me miss meat. Okay, maybe I did just cross a line, but still. These still look pretty great and I’m sure to the vegetarians out there you just jumped for joy. To the vegans…I’m sorry. (Thx thebittenworld)
