Bagel Confessions

This past year, Linda has really changed her eating habits.  She used to live on basically vegetarian junk food.   Lots of frozen appetizer foods (fried & stuffed jalapeno peppers!), bagels and cream cheese, pizza, french fries and desserts.  Now she is eating healthy, nutritious food about 95% of the time.  Quinoa, cous cous, roasted veggies and she has added fish to her diet to increase her protein.  Breakfast is a fruit-veggie smoothie, oatmeal or yogurt instead of a 700 calorie scone, muffin or bagel.  Except yesterday.  After her morning classes she couldn't get the idea of a bagel out of her head.  If you are going to eat a food you're craving, you might as well go for the best.... that would be going to our local bagel cafe.

Fat, chewy amazing bagels!!
The bagels and hand-mixed flavored cream cheese are absolutely the best.  So much better than the chains and about 1,000 times better than the grocery store.  The only downside is the price.  This combo cost $5.00.  If Linda ate it at home, it would probably cost about .50 cents.  Back in the day, she would eat this exact meal about 5 times a week.  That's $100 a month on breakfast alone! 
At least she scooped out the insides of the bagel (old Weight Watchers trick) and only used a little of the chocolate chip cream cheese.  It was so worth it!
