If you love your morning bagel from the coffee shop, try this simple improvement: Cut your bagel in half, and swap high fat cream cheese for a protein-rich topping like peanut butter or a scrambled egg, recommends Batayneh. “Bagels are nothing more than 300 calories of refined carbs (most have as many carbohydrates as four slices of bread) which will send your blood sugar soaring.” By eliminating some of the carbohydrate and calorie count and balancing it with protein, you’ll not only shave off an extra 250 calories, but you’ll be more likely to stay full (and energized) till lunch. Share the other half of your bagel with a friend, or save it to have with your salad (in place of croutons) or with your soup (instead of a sandwich) at lunch.
