This combo packs a big nutritional punch with both fiber and protein, plus the healthy and filling fats in nuts and seeds. Stick with a mini or “flat” bagel instead of a regular one—this is a snack, not a meal. Be cautious buying whole-grain bagels. Labeling that proclaims “whole wheat,” “whole grain” and “7 grain” can be deceiving. In order to know you are indeed getting a product made completely with whole-wheat flour, the package must say “100 percent whole grain.” Top each bagel with one of the following:

Sweet:

• 2 tablespoons peanut butter
• Small handful sliced strawberries or whole blueberries
• Sprinkling of favorite chopped nuts (Walnuts add heart-healthy fat, protein and crunch.)

Savory:

• 2 tablespoons chevre or other soft cheese
• Small handful sliced cucumbers or pitted olives
• Sprinkling of favorite seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, etc.)
