Eat bagels.




  • Poppy seed.
  • Sunflower seed.
  • Everything!


In the "no carb" craze (I am so glad that’s over), I used to shy away from bagels.  And I have NO IDEA why.  Bagels are amazing!  Soft and squishy, filling, comforting… bagels rule!


And they make a fabulous afternoon snack when your tummy is growling from your AM run.  🙂


Bagel lovers, unite!

    Cinnamon raisin bagels are my favorite! I haven't had one in a long time, thanks for the reminder!

  • Anna Webb August 28, 2009, 2:19 pm

    MMMmmm bagels! I'm actually eating a bagel sammie right now.

    Plain toasted bagel with garden vegetable cream cheese, honey ham (sorry!), tomato and lettuce. YUM.

  • Marisa (Trim The Fat) August 28, 2009, 2:26 pm

    I heart bagels, too! Had one this a.m. with whipped cream cheese!

  • Angharad August 28, 2009, 2:39 pm

    I'm so glad I never went through a "no carb" stage – that would suck. I love everything bagels!! And sesame seed. Oh yum. Such comforting deliciousness.
    Happy Friday!

    I was so looking for a bagel in my freezer this morning, but there wasn't one. I haven't had one in for ever.

  • Sleepdreamdress August 28, 2009, 2:43 pm

    You gotta try the onion poppyseed ones from whole foods….I'm completely hooked. I hear ya about shying away from them. During my ED times I would die before I would eat a bagel…now they are my morning staple 🙂 Funny. You gotta try hemp bagels too!


  • Beth August 28, 2009, 2:45 pm

    I have not had a bagel in years, they did get a bad rap for a while…I really need to incorporate that back into the diet. Maybe I'll pick some up this weekend!

  • Leianna August 28, 2009, 2:46 pm

    I love bagels for breakfast before a long run, such good carb fuel!

    I love bagels for breakfast before a long run, such good carb fuel!

  • Mandy August 28, 2009, 2:57 pm

  • Jenny August 28, 2009, 2:57 pm

    i don't know how i ever convinced myself that i could live without carbs! i love me some soft doughy bagel goodness <3

  • K from ksgoodeats August 28, 2009, 3:10 pm

    I'm a BIG bagel fan – fully support eating those carby, circles of joy 🙂

  • platipus329 August 28, 2009, 3:16 pm

    Mmmm bagels. i think one of the worst sins is that Panera only sells cream cheese, no nut spreads

  • Meg August 28, 2009, 3:30 pm

    I totally agree – I love onion bagels with veggie cream cheese! Yum! Poppyseeds are good, too!

    This post makes me crave a bagel!

    Happy Friday!

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) August 28, 2009, 3:39 pm

    YUM, I love bagels although I don't eat them often enough- my fav is pumpernickel. I just had the best combo two days ago though– a cinnamon raisin with pb and banana. It was delicious!

  • Lori August 28, 2009, 3:45 pm

    I eat bagels twice a week. Funny, someone told me that I wouldn't lose weight eating bagels. Guess they should have told me that 100 pounds ago…..

  • runsarah August 28, 2009, 4:01 pm

    I loveee bagels! I buy the weight watchers ones because they are 100% whole wheat and the perfect size – bigger than a mini bagel but smaller than a regular size, so great for snacking.

  • Rosey Rebecca August 28, 2009, 4:15 pm

    I love bagels!!

  • Morgan (lifeafterbagels) August 28, 2009, 4:28 pm

    YES Caitlin! . . . I love bagels so much, that I've had a personal trainer and a nutritionist advise me to stop eating them everday . . . so in my quest for healthy living I have cut down a lot. And to document my quest for living I started my own blog a couple weeks ago

    BTW – you were definitely an inspiration to me starting my blog so THANK YOU

    and thanks for loving bagels as much as me!

  • Niki August 28, 2009, 4:42 pm

    Love me some bagels!!

  • Julie August 28, 2009, 4:58 pm

  • Jenna August 28, 2009, 5:14 pm

    cinnamon raisin crunch bagels from panera…rock your socks off!

  • theskinnyplate August 28, 2009, 5:25 pm

    Bagels are indeed yummy. I love Noah's NY style bagels with their salmon spread. So delicious.

  • HangryPants August 28, 2009, 5:41 pm

    I am a proud bagel eater. If you ever come to NJ I will take you to my favorite bagel place. You will die.

  • *Andrea* August 28, 2009, 5:43 pm

    my younger sister has a bagel almost every day for bfast 🙂 a cinnamon raisin one with cream cheese from dunkin. deeeelish

  • Tina August 28, 2009, 5:52 pm

    I just wrote a post on Health about bagels! 🙂

  • healthyfitmama August 28, 2009, 6:18 pm

    I am totally a classic middle child!

    You definitely just made me want to hit up my favorite local bagel shop. I haven't been there in so long. I've stayed away from bagels too. It's time to do something about that!

  • jibbalibba August 28, 2009, 6:40 pm

    i love blueberry bagels and poppy seed best they are so filling and yum

  • Stef August 28, 2009, 6:43 pm

    I totally agree I love bagels too!

  • Bridget August 28, 2009, 6:55 pm

    Mmmmmm, man I need to get over the bagel "fear" haha… Because when I do have them they are incredible!

  • Oh She Glows August 28, 2009, 7:30 pm

    Bagels are still the one food I am 'afraid' of for some reason. I don't think I have had one in about 6 years. I really need to get over that!

  • Christina August 28, 2009, 7:39 pm

    It's been way too long since I've had a bagel. Poppy seed used to be my favorite!

  • Peter August 28, 2009, 8:14 pm

    high glycemic index!Bad!

  • Susan August 28, 2009, 9:24 pm

    I loooove making my own pizza bagels…so good!

  • Nicole August 28, 2009, 11:43 pm

    I have come to believe in everything in moderation! Bagels are awesome! They are a great pre/post run food! I tried the Zone Diet for a couple of months (which is not sustainable for life by most of the population), and I missed my bagels! Never again!

  • Susan August 29, 2009, 2:44 am

    Certain kinds of bagels actually have a decent amount of protein, especially when you put an egg on top 😉

  • k August 29, 2009, 5:55 am

    i love when they are slightly crunch on the outside (from being made in a wood oven) and then chewy and soft in the middle. delicious.

  • Jolene - EverydayFoodie August 29, 2009, 1:48 pm

    Absolutely! Bagels rock!!

  • Happy Feet 26.2 August 29, 2009, 6:26 pm

    Yummo! Love almost every bagel I ever tried. Everyone must go to New York and try the H&H bagels. We came home with huge bags several years ago. We also have a local place, Southbound Bagels, they make fresh bagels. I get whole wheat or plain with egg and cheese. Perfect combo of carbs and protein. I usually get these for lunch. Had one yesterday. I do not worry at all about carbs, but I do worry about total calories. All things in moderation! Sometimes I am better at moderation than others.
