Bagel Breakfast Plus
Low Calorie Recipe
Bagel Breakfast Plus is very tasty, very easy to pull together and most important, very healthy! Whole wheat bagels with red raspberries and milk.
3 oz whole wheat bagels
1 tablespoon nonfat cream cheese
1/2 cup red raspberries
1/2 cup skim milk
Mix cream cheese, raspberries and skim milk; spread on bagel to make a "sandwich".
Note that bagels vary considerably in their weight, and therefore calorie content. For this meal, choose a whole bakery-sized bagel or 1-1/2 frozen bagel; either is equivalent to 3 ounces. Spread with 1 tablespoon nonfat cream cheese (toast first, if you like).
Enjoy with an ice-cold glass of skim milk and a bowl of fresh or frozen raspberries.
Alternatively, warm the milk and mix with strong coffee to make a tall cafe late. And for another taste adventure: embed the raspberries on top of the cream cheese-spread bagel.
Yield: 1 bagel breakfast
