So, I've been looking for a substitute for a bagel and cream cheese for a while. They're on my top ten favorite foods list, but the good ones have a bajillion calories. The bad ones have maybe 3/4 of a bajillion calories, but aren't worth the expenditure for this anal-retentive calorie counter. Every time that I've tried a substitute, though--Bagel Things pop into mind--I've been thoroughly disappointed. I think I've found the solution:
Thomas's pretzel bagels. They're 120 calories. They're thoroughly satisfying. The salt is in a separate packet, so I can ignore it. And, when topped with a Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb wedge, they're 155 calories. They completely satisfy that craving. I'll call that a win.
Just thought I'd share!
