The bagel that loves you back:

I usually stay away from bagels because they're too hard and flavorless to be worth eating, have 3 or more servings per bagel, and are usually full of empty calories and sugars. French Meadow Bakery's "Hemp Bagels" and I found each other in May, and they're a step forward in bagel-dom.  Though they are a little pricey, I continue to get them on a regular basis. 

A whopping 19 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, half the carbs of normal bagels, no added sugars, no yeast, and only 280 calories for the whole bagel instead of the half-bagel serving sizes you usually see, Hemp Bagels are great! You wanna talk whole grain? These babies have 3 servings of whole grains, 9 types of seeds (that you can see in every bite), and lots of good-for-you stuff like sprouted quinoa. Plus they're YUMMY.
