Kim's Light Bagels Review

Kims Light BagelsI'm always on the lookout for a tasty, low-calorie bagel, so I was really excited to find Kim's Light Bagels. They are offered in a delicious variety of flavors including plain, wheat, cinnamon, blueberry and onion. I tried the plain, wheat, and cinnamon bagels. Each was great, but I think the cinnamon ones were my favorite. If you think "Light" means that something is missing - then you would be wrong when it comes to these bagels.

The bagels aren't huge. Like Western Bagel: The Alternative Bagel, each is 54 grams - about half the size of regular bagels. But they're a filling snack on their own and an excellent sandwich base for a meal. They were developed by Kim Bensen, a woman who lost a remarkable 212 pounds through a lot of hard work, not surgery. Given her background, it's not a surprise that the bagels were developed with healthy eating in mind.

I ordered these bagels online for $2.19 a bag (with a $1 discount per bag); shipping is $11 for 1-6 bags, so it makes sense to buy in bulk. The nutritional stats are as follows (variations reflect different flavors): 110 calories, 1-1.5 grams of fat (no saturated or trans fats), 180-200 mg of sodium, 4-5 grams of fiber, and 5-7 grams of protein.
