New Bagels on the Block

Growing up, I would often walk to Panera after school and get a cinnamon crunch bagel and I would get hungry again an hour later. Looking back now, I cannot say that I’m surprised. Those gigantic, refined flour, sugar-laden treats are are not exactly a wholesome snack–they pack 430 calories and 32 grams of sugar. That is eight teaspoons of sugar. Now I don’t want to demonize sugar or bagels, but so many of our modern day products have ballooned in size; a plain bagel twenty years ago was about half the size of today’s bagel.

Luckily, not all bagels are created equal and there are some great options out there that pack a great nutritional punch and taste amazing.

Enter: Western Bagel. The brand was generous enough to send me a sample pack of their Perfect 10 line bagels,which comes in Healthy Grain and Everything flavor.

Curious where the name comes from? Check out the nutrition stats:

 

The bagels have a whopping 19 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber–that’s what I would call a filling, healthy afternoon snack!

 

You can make it sweet with jam (I love Nature’s Hollow)…

It goes without saying that my freezer is fully stocked and ready; these are the perfect on-the-go snack for a long day at school or at work.

  1. Haha, funny you mention Panera’s bagels. My dad got an e-mail saying he gets a free bagel from them everyday in April, and now he, my sis, and I are sharing it among ourselves as far as what days we each want to claim it! So I actually had one of their cinnamon raisin bagels on Friday. It tasted delicious, but I won’t deny that I was hungry soon after lol
