Alternative Bagels That Are High in Protein

Rate This

Well if you love bagels but don't love the calorie count that comes with them I have a great bagel for you. You may have already discovered them as they are not that new, but Western Bagel has 5 excellent bagels that you just have to try.

Along with great taste these bagels are low in calories (110) and high in fiber (7-8g - depending on the flavor) and protein (7g)! You can't beat that!! Oh wait they did! They also have their Perfect 10 Bagel which is a healthy grain bagel weighing in at 140 calories, 9g Fiber, 18g Protein, 15% Iron and 10% Calcium! Wow - that is a Perfect 10!

Western Bagel's Alternative Bagels can be found in many grocery stores, but you have to be persisitant when looking for them. I find them here at Pavilions (which is Vons, Tom Thumb, Randalls or Safeway) and Albertsons. However, they don't always have them. They tend to be cheapest at Albertsons, so when I do find them I buy a few bags and freeze them. The flavors are Cinnamon Spice, White, Roasted Onion, Sweet Wheat, and Very Blueberry. My personal favorite is the Cinnamon Spice and my husband's is the Sweet Wheat.

Unfortunately you cannot find them in all grocery stores and not even all states. However, you can buy them online where you can find all of them along with their Perfect 10 Bagels, their NEW Alternative Pitas and their Alternative English Muffins, which I am also a fan of! There is a shipping charge which is a total bummer, but if you just love your bagels then I think it is worth it! Enjoy!
