Yup. Bagel in-yo-face! No need to shun bagels if your goal for 2019 is to get your butt to not look like two giant bagels.
Einsten Bros. Bagels is all tootin’-their-horn with their protein-filled bagels. Their “Power of the Bagel” campaign is happy to share with the world that some of their bagels contain nine-to-17 grams of protein each—which is more protein than or equal to one large egg, three slices of turkey, one cup of two-percent milk, or two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter.
Here’s the skinny:
Plain Bagel and Everything Bagel: 9 grams of protein
100% Whole Wheat Bagel: 10 grams of protein
Ancient Grain Bagel: 11 grams of protein
“Our Chocolate Chip Bagel has 9 grams of protein, the same as a Chocolate Chip Clif Bar, a leading energy bar,” said Tyler Ricks, President of Einstein Bros. Bagels. “Whether guests are looking for energy to power through their day or to fuel their workout, our bagels are a wholesome choice that don’t compromise taste.”
Now, don’t go all schmear-happy. That’s definitely not healthier-for-you choice. Or perhaps not these, either. Though they look so tasty:
Too bad the Einstein folks didn’t actually give us any pictures of the bagels they’re trying to promote. Hhhmmm….
Haus of V is a creative collective that shares a similar mindset -- with a twist.
