westernbagel.com; $3.50I've always loved bagels but gave them up as a daily indulgence long ago because the nutritional stats for most of them aren't so diet-friendly.
Blessedly, bagels are back in my life now with this great food find -- Western Bagel Alternative Bagels.
I stumbled upon them in my grocery store and grudgingly took them home expecting them to taste pretty awful. But they weren't awful at all; in fact, they were so good that I went back to the store the next day, bought as many as they had, and froze them just in case I couldn't find them again.
The nutritional stats are almost too good to believe. For my favorite flavor, roasted onion, there are just 110 calories and no fat -- for an entire bagel. What's more, each one contains 7 grams of fiber. They come in lots of other flavors too like blueberry, cinnamon, and wheat.
I often eat them with bit of light cream cheese, or use them to make a sandwich with turkey and avocado, hummus, veggies, or whatever else I have on hand. I'm also going to attempt to make them into bagel chips to use for dipping.
