Many of you have become accustomed to Arnold Sandwich Thins as being an easy, calorie conscious choice for sandwiches, mini pizzas, etc, but have you seen the new Thomas’ Bagel Thins?! Such a simple concept, but they have changed my life.
I’ve always been a carb lover, but had mostly given up bagels a few years ago due to the calorie bomb that most of them are…
Dunkin Donut Wheat Bagel (plain) 320 calories, 3.5 g fat, 550 mg sodium
Starbucks MultiGrain Bagel (plain) 320 calories, 4 g fat, 220 mg sodium
Panera Whole Grain Bagel (plain) 370 calories, 3.5 g fat, 420 mg sodium
But now, Thomas’s has brought my love back to me with their new Bagel Thins! They taste just like a regular bagel, but thinner (obviously…), and the best part is for one 100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thin, it will only cost you 110 calories, 1 g fat, 190 mg sodium!
This means you could enjoy a delicious bagel thin, topped with 1 tbsp of low fat cream cheese (45 calories, 3 g fat, 100 mg sodium) for less than HALF of a regular bagel with no creamy topping…
100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thin + Cream Cheese = 155 calories, 4 g fat, 290 mg sodium
Panera Whole Grain Bagel, no topping = 370 calories, 3.5 g fat, 420 mg sodium
For an even more satisfying breakfast, try the breakfast I make for my husband:
1 Whole Wheat Bagel Thin
½ c Egg Beaters (southwestern style is the best!)
2 tbsp chopped onions and peppers
1 slice reduced fat cheese
Saute the peppers and onions in a pan with a little nonstick spray, add the Egg Beaters and scramble. Sandwich the slice of cheese and egg inside the Bagel Thin and enjoy a satisfying breakfast that will stick with you for only 220 calories, 5 g fat!
With a breakfast that low in calories, you’ll be able to add in some fresh fruit and coffee with milk as well. Bagel lovers unite, and bring the joy back to breakfast!
