Healthy Bagels


How Our Kettle Cooked Bagels are Made!


Assorted BagelsContinuing on our binge of healthy items at the bagel store, we have so spoken about eating healthy foods and what healthy foods are available at the bagel store, but we have not touched specifically on healthy bagels! That’s right. Healthy bagels!

This article describes how bagels fit into a healthy diet and gives tips on how you can maximize their nutritional value. Here is everything you need to know about bagels, including what people say about incorporating them into a nutritional diet. Knead the dough, form a circle with a hole in the middle, then cook and bake the bagels.

The nutritional content of bagels can vary widely, with countless varieties made from an assortment of ingredients. In general, bagels are made from whole foods which are healthy in their own right. The simplest bagel is made from a mixture of refined wheat flour, salt, water, and yeast.

Bagels can be healthier than breakfast pastries, such as croissants and donuts because they contain less fat. The exact nutritional value of a bagel depends on the ingredients and toppings used. While its value can vary depending on the variety, bagels are a good source of energy and carbohydrates as well as small to medium amounts of protein.

Bagels that are billed as wholemeal are made from 100 percent wholemeal flour, but you can also eat standard bagels made from processed flour. However, do not assume that they always contain whole grains.

When you buy bagels, it is best to choose from the whole food options: flour, yeast, salt, barley malt, and eggs. Given all these options, it can be difficult to decide which bagels to buy if you want to eat healthily.

Eating Healthy at Cino’s Bagels

Fruits and Vegetables
Eat Healthy

No way you say? At a bagel store? Because you immediately become emersed in the thought of bagels and the calories that accompany them but did you ever think about the food items you can eat that are low on calories and also healthy for your body and brain? With over 30 years of baking experience, let’s see what healthy treats Cinos can do for you!

Yogurt Parfait

Packed with protein, fiber, calcium, iron, and vitamin C, how can you go wrong? This tasty breakfast (also as a snack) contains blueberries, strawberries, granola, and of course yogurt.

OK, we know. Most of these parfaits do have some sugar content, but if you are not that concerned about your weight and even if you are, the calorie content is not that much to really be concerned about, and in general, the health benefits can outweigh the negative; however, it really is up to you – the individual to make the final decision.

Let’s start with some blueberries and strawberries (nutrients discussed in the Fresh Fruits section) for your parfait and a little granola to the top.

What is Granola?

Granola is a very high fiber filling food. It can fill your stomach so you don’t feel hungry for more calorie-ridden snacks. This is referred to as satiation. Granola contains oats and whole grains, which help you not just maintain weight but are also loaded with antioxidants, proteins, healthy fats, and micronutrients.

 

Improves Blood Pressure
Blood pressure problems? Dig into that granola let your blood run (in a healthy way of course). Granola has been found in studies that it can help with hypertension
.

Lowers Cholesterol
The oats in granola contain beta-glucan, which studies have shown that these oats help to reduce “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels. This can help in reducing the possibility of heart disease.

Fresh Fruit

You don’t have to have a parfait to enjoy some healthy low-calorie foods. Have a feast on fresh blueberries, strawberries, and bananas along with your wake me up coffee or cappuccino.

Here are the benefits of eating fresh fruit:

This superfood is packed with antioxidants, which is a healthy element that attacks free radicals and free radicals is not something that you want in your body.

Blueberries are known to have one of the highest antioxidant capacities compared to other fruits and vegetables. The benefits of acquiring antioxidants on a daily basis help to lower the risk of heart disease and brain diseases, as well as help people with stress and anxiety.

Strawberries

Fiber is a welcome ingredient here, as well as fighting oxidative stress (the result of free radicals), which, like blueberries help to reduce the risk of illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

A Taste of Bagel History

Assorted BagelsThe first recorded bagel originated in the Jewish communities of 16th century Poland. The name is derived from the Yiddish word beygal in association with the German word beugel, meaning “ring” or “bracelet”.

As the centuries passed, the bagel became popular throughout Europe, and most recently, within the last century, it has become a household word in North America, especially in the big cities. New York is the primary bagel city.

What is the Bagel Made of?

Man rolling doughA better question would be – what is bagel dough? It is formed by mixing salt, water, and yeast to make it rise, called leveling. The bagels you get at a bagel store are not automated. Instead, they are shaped by hand into a ring; hence, the original word beygal (ring). It is then boiled and afterward, baked. The result, a soft, circular, tasty firm of bread.

What Can I Eat with a Bagel?

Bagel SandwichCream cheese is a favorite, but many people add lox (salmon) and while they’re at it, add some tomatoes for a real breakfast treat! There are so many other foods you can have with a bagel.

You can also add eggs, fruits, vegetables, and on and on. Of course, don’t forget the ketchup. Bagel stores can offer you any combination your heart desires as well as ready-made packages too.

What Kind of Bagels are There?

Some people prefer just the plain type, but why settle for plain? Treat yourself to an egg or onion bagel, or maybe an everything bagel? Put some of the addons mentioned above. Have some coffee while you’re at it and don’t forget to get your bagel with a smear!
