Order Up Because It’s National Bagel Day!

While you’re sitting in the drive thru waiting to order a coffee, consider adding a bagel. It’s National Bagel day and we’ve got the lowdown on this popular grab-and-go food.

Unfortunately, bagels are full of carbs. Most bagels lack vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Without fiber, the carbs in a bagel digest quickly, convert to sugar, and then, very possibly, to fat.

When ordering the bagel, consider these tips:

  • First, mini size your bagel.
  • Second, go for whole grains.
  • Third, limit your toppings.
  • Finally, remove the soft interior of a bagel and enjoy the crust.

Incorporate Grains for Your Eyes

Whole grains contain vitamin E, zinc and niacin, which can all improve eye health by reducing the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.

According to Eye Site on Wellness, “Whole grains reduce the likelihood of blood sugar spikes that can damage the retina over time. Zinc in whole grains protects eye tissue from light and inflammation.”
