I LOVE THESE! They have only 100 calories, 5 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein.

If you split them first they toast wonderfully right from the freezer.

Melt some non-fat cheese on a toasted one, top with an egg, a slice of tomato and a tablespoon of "bacos" or other soy bacon, and you have a pretty good stand in for the classic Egg McMuffin, with extra protein and calcium and a fraction of the fat! :carrot:

Oh yes, Western Bagel bagels are really good too! Mmmm.

If you can't find them, though (they're hard to find here...I know Western Bagel is based in LA, and Wal-Mart carries the bagels, but I've never seen the english muffins), another good option I love is Oroweat's Double Fiber english muffin. They're 110 calories, 4 g protein, and 8 grams of fiber.

Oh that is nice to know about the Orowheat, I will look for those -- I usually have to make a special trip to the Western Bagel store to get the other ones so it's nice to have an alternative at the regular store!

btw mandalinn I enjoyed your success story & before and after pix, you are looking good girl!
