You are running quite late for work, with no time in hand to prepare a breakfast. You quickly whip up a glass of coffee along with a bagel on your way to work. But our question to you is – Is that bagel healthy? To answer this, it will be difficult to make a blanket statement categorizing all bagels as good or bad. In the end, it all boils down to selecting the right kind of bagel. A plain medium bagel has 289 calories, 1.6 g of fat, 2.4 g of fiber and 11.03 g of protein. Opt for a multigrain or whole wheat variety of bagel, if you are looking to incorporate bagels into your healthy dietary routine. Today, Lalita - CEO and Founder of Bagel’s Cafe Pvt Ltd - shares with us one such health bagel recipe. We promise, it doesn't compromise on taste!
