Recently a member on our private Facebook low-carb group mentioned that they had purchased some bread and bagels that they really liked. Having been burned before on low-carb bread that was more like trying to eat a sponge than baked goods I was very skeptical so I decided to try it out myself…
Michael and I decided that we would have breakfast for dinner last night. I made us some of our favorite ham and egg cups while he microwaved bacon. We shared a ThinSlim Foods Love the Taste Cinnamon Bagel slathered with lots of butter. We purposely didn’t add any jam or jelly so that we could evaluate the bagel on its own.
We both agree… it’s a KEEPER! It has all the same texture of a regular bagel and tastes great! It had just enough cinnamon and at just 2 net carbs for the whole bagel it was definitely something we will buy again!
As you can see the ThinSlim cinnamon bagel has 16 grams of carbohydrates. Subtract the 14 grams of dietary fiber and as is clearly stated on their nutritional label that leaves you with just 2 net carbs per serving. For those of us living a less than 20 net carbs per day low-carb lifestyle that’s great! Couple it with the fact that these bagels are delicious and you have a definite winner!
Yes we could make our own, and have low-carb bread recipes that we could use but sometimes it’s just easier to have something ready made on hand or in the freezer. I left a couple bagels in our fridge and put the rest in the freezer so that we’ll have them when we want them and they won’t go bad.
ThinSlim, like lots of other low-carb groceries, isn’t available to me locally. I will just add it to my regular Netrition order! With their low $4.95 flat rate shipping it keeps my costs low while delivering high-quality low-carb food-stuffs (like 44 different sugar-free syrups, CarbQuik and more) that I cannot get at my local grocery or specialty shops. I have always had fast service and delivery on every order placed and not one item has ever arrived broken or crushed. I highly recommend both ThinSlim and Netrition!
I would love to hear about our experiences with low carb products and breads in your comment below. I’m always looking to test out something new!
In the meantime, ciao for now! ~Marge
