I was excited to try out these lite bagels! I loved all the yummy flavors! I’m a real bagel fan. I like bagels right out of the package, I like them toasted, smeared with cream cheese or made into a sandwich. I found the Bagel Thins to be wonderful each way. Don’t deprive yourself of a bagel, try Bagel Thins!


Nutritionist, Keri Glassman, author of the O2 Diet and Thomas’ Bagel Thins let me ask her some questions and here are her answers~

1. What is your best tip for making healthy eating easy and fun?

Pick your five favorite healthy foods and think of at least 2 ways to eat them in fun ways. Always keep these foods on hand. Maybe you love blueberries – you can make blueberry smoothies with almond milk, ice and a nut butter, or maybe you mash them up with cinnamon and use as a spread on a Thomas’ Bagel Thins bagel.

2. What is a quick chocolate treat that won't make me feel guilty?

I love a ½ ounce of dark chocolate! Cocoa powder is great too and is a source of antioxidants. Antioxidants help boost our immune system, protect us from heart disease, cancer and even prevent wrinkles! Make a hot chocolate with skim or almond milk, or mix some cocoa powder into a Greek yogurt for a chocolate “pudding”.

3. What is your favorite breakfast?

I’m busy, and a big on-the-go eater. I love nuts including pistachios, peanuts and almonds. So I like to spread some peanut butter and cinnamon on a toasted 100% Whole Wheat
Thomas’ Bagel Thins to get my whole grains and fiber in the am!It’s an easy portable option. Then, I grab a green tea skim latte.

4. How about your favorite grab and go snack?

I feel like I’m always eating, so what am I grabbing? Ha ha. I always have a bag of nuts, like pistachios and almonds, and fiber crackers with peanut butter. I also love a really good green apple with cinnamon.

5. What do you suggest when the munchies hit?

If you’re eating consistently throughout the day and you get the munchies, don’t think of it as a bad thing. You may truly need a snack! Sit down and have a real snack, preferably with
some protein for satiety and fiber to keep you filled up. Also, pinpoint your craving. Are you craving something sweet or salty? If you are craving salty, get something salty, with a health
twist, like air popped popcorn with parmesan cheese to satisfy that craving. Don’t try to “eat around” the craving.

Here are some more great tips~

Thomas’® Bagel Thins™ Bagels Morning Tips

Don’t skimp on sleep
o It’s important to get a good night’s sleep to feel well-rested - ready to take on the day! Most adults need about seven to eight hours of sleep each night, and studies have shown that those who get less have impaired memory and physical performance. Not getting enough sleep can also make concentration difficult, and leave you feeling drowsy all day. So aim to get enough sleep each night. It’ll boost your immune system, help your nervous system work properly, and leave you feeling energized all day! Experts estimate that compared to getting 7 to 8 hours per night, the risk
of developing obesity rises 23 percent with just 6 hours of sleep per night, 50 percent with only 5 hours per night, and 73 percent with 4 hours per night!

Have a healthy breakfast
o While sleeping each night, your body is in a fasting mode, so within an hour of rising, you need to break that fast by eating a healthy breakfast. It gives your body the fuel it needs to meet your busy schedule and skipping breakfast decreases your metabolism, and increases your cravings throughout the day! Studies have also shown consuming breakfast improves cognition and memory in children and adolescents making them able to concentrate and be more attentive in school. We all have some kid in us, so use this tip to your advantage!

Eat empowered
o Every morning when you sit down to breakfast (and every meal!), remember that each meal is an opportunity to get back in the game and stay on course. You should feel empowered by making the right choices. There are always healthier alternatives to the high-fat, high-calorie, nutrient-less options that we all tend to go for, and I always keep a healthy staple product on-hand to help me quickly make a delicious and nutritious meal. Thomas’® Bagel Thins™ bagel is one of those better-for-you options - they’re 110 calories each, low in fat and every flavor is at
least a good source of fiber. It’s not “I can’t eat that heavy bagel” – it IS -“I can eat the Thomas’ Bagel Thins™ bagel!

Start with a glass of lemon water
o Drinking enough h2o throughout the day helps with weight loss in several ways. First, there’s an emotional component; it will make you feel empowered and will help spur you to make good choices for the rest of the day. Second, researchers have long known that dieters who replace sweetened drinks with water lose weight more quickly that those who don’t. Finally, many people overeat because they are actually thirsty and just can’t tell the difference between thirst and hunger. Also, when you’re
adequately hydrated, your metabolism functions at its best.

Exercise steady
o Aside from burning calories, exercise is important because it causes your body to release endorphins, making you feel good, and motivating you

I hope you have enjoyed reading all these great tips! I had so much fun working on this review for you.
