A few days ago, The American and I decided to walk the Sharon Woods Trail on the most freezing cold morning of my life! To cut a long story short… I walked over 8kms and cried for probably 4kms of it as I swear my whole body was going numb. Spot the Aussie too who was wearing 1000 layers and was still blue from the cold!
When we finally made it back to our car, Scott suggested that we go to Panera Bread to try and warm up with hot coffee by their fireplace. So with a short drive we had arrived and he was right- the place was incredibly warm and cozy from the heat of their fireplace. The lady behind the counter serving us was also very warm in that she congratulated us for walking the Sharon Woods trail in this temperature and told us about other local events called “Winter Walks” where people walk the trails and then share in a morning tea of soup and hot coffee together after.
We placed our order of a small coffee each, a cinnamon scroll for Scott and a Sprouted Grain Flat Bagel for myself. Obviously being fitness and health conscious and counting macros as my nutrition plan, I chose based on that. I love that Panera Bread provides the macros and nutritional information, rather than just the calorie count. My bagel was a total of 230 calories which was made up of 1.5g of F | 48g of C | 8g of P. Better still- when we ordered a small coffee each, we were told that it is self serve and unlimited! Exactly what we needed on a morning such as this!
