The bagel has always been a classic breakfast option for those that love carbs or are eating on the go. You can eat it in the car on your way to work or enjoy it with a cup of coffee in the morning. But, bread overall has been really demonized over the past few years for its empty carbs and lack of all nutritional value. Fear not, for there is a bagel that you can eat that is ultra delicious and suspiciously healthy.
Dave's Killer Bread is a fantastic bread company that makes amazing bread, but especially amazing bagels. For a little nutritional information, each bagel has 12 grams of protein, and lots of whole grains. The everything bagel, which is my favorite, has 27 grams of whole grains and over 560 mg of omega-3. If you are more of a plain bagel person, they have that too. The plain bagel has 12 grams of protein, 13 whole grains (with 5 super grains), and no high fructose corn syrup. When you look at the nutrition label and compare it to a regular bagel, the difference is substantial. There no longer needs to be guilt when eating your morning bagel! They also have a third bagel flavor, which is their cinnamon raisin. It has 10 whole grains and 11 grams of protein. Still healthy and delicious. Overall I would say you can't go wrong.
You can find these bagels and bread at almost any grocery store so check them out! They range in price (depending on the grocery store) from $4.50- $5.95. You can compare this to Sara Lee Bagels which on average are about $3.19. So you are spending about $1.50 more, but considering all of the health benefits you are getting, I would say it's worth it.
