I looove bagels!! I always have, I love getting them from Timmies (Tim Horton's) or spreading cream cheese over them... but I stopped eating bagels in the past several years. I eat them once maybe every several months now. For one bagel, I mean one plain bagel, no toppings, nothing added to it...can already be over 350 calories! Add the cream cheese or bacon, egg and cheese as my other favorite option for bagels...that could easily be 600-700 calories! I'm not sure if you know but for an average activity woman, 2000 calories is the recommended daily intake but look here, I'm just at the breakfast bun and not even my drink or any additional fruit and I'm close to half my daily intake?! So much for trying to keep fit, huh?
Needless to say, I was really happy to be introduced to Thomas Bagel Thins Bagels. I have never tried them or heard of them before in my life but bagels that are only 110 calories? 1/3 of what I used to have and supposedly the same amazing taste, texture and shape? I'll take it!
They come in 4 flavors and yes, every single one is 110 calories! So, there's whole wheat, everything, plain and cinnamon raisin.
I tried the Everything Bagel. In my attempts to keep healthy, I chose the spinach dip as my topping instead of cream cheese...and that combination was absolutely delicious! It was so good, I couldn't stop at one bagel... Initially, my SO and I were going to split one as a quick snack but after that first one, we decided we didn't want to share another one and had one each. So, all in all, we had 1.5 bagels...working out to be about 165 calories worth of bagels each which is still less than one of my regular bagels.
The good: 110 calories/bagel!!
The Bad: Well, they are bagel thins so well, you get the idea, they are a smaller portion than the bagels we're used to so it might not be enough for other people.
Until next time,
