Panera’s Got a New Hidden (and Healthy) Menu!

The Power Breakfast Egg Bowl with Steak includes two all-natural eggs, seared top sirloin, sliced avocado and tomatoes. Yum!

If you’re anything like me, you’re a regular at Panera Bread for yummy food before, between or after classes and rehearsals. So I was reeeeally excited when I stumbled across info about Panera’s new “Hidden Menu.” It includes six exciting options—two “breakfast bowls” and four lunch/dinner options (salad, wrap or bowl).

And all of these hidden choices “contain limited processed carbs” and “are an excellent source of protein,” according to Panera’s website. Just how much protein? Hidden Menu options range from 22 to 35 grams apiece—that’s about half the recommended daily intake for teen girls! Perfect for keeping you satisfied and energized through those grueling summer intensives.

Oh, and did I mention that these meals sound absolutely scrumptious? Care for some seared top sirloin and sliced avocado in your Power Breakfast Egg Bowl with Steak? How about the Power Chicken Hummus Bowl’s “all-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, with cilantro jalapeno hummus”? Dee-lish.

As you might guess from the name, these secret meals aren’t displayed at any of Panera’s bakery-cafes, so you’ll have to tell the employee taking your order that you’re ordering from the Hidden Menu. But you can scope out these new choices online before you go! And for nutrition info on all of Panera’s menu items, click here.

Is dance a sport? Should it be in the Olympics? They're complicated questions that tend to spark heated debate. But many dance fans will be excited to hear that breaking (please don't call it breakdancing) has been provisionally added to the program for the 2024 Summer Olympic Games in Paris.

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)

All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
