Week Two Clarification

Monday, January 25, 2010

Bagels that you get from bagel places like Bruegger’s are very large, usually between three-and-a-half and four ounces, which is three to four servings of bread.

I always cut the bagels in half and put them in the freezer, and unless I’m making a bacon and egg sandwich, I only eat half at a time. So everywhere it says “bagel with cream cheese,” that’s really half a bagel with cream cheese.

I had discovered a few ounces of cream cheese in the fridge that I had forgotten about, and wanted to use up before it went bad, so that’s one of the reasons I ate more bagels than I might have otherwise during Week Two.

    If you don’t want to use up cream cheese on bagels sometime, I sometimes throw leftover bits into spaghetti sauces, mash some into cooked potatoes with seasonings, etc., even in some curry sauces sometimes to give them a little extra creaminess.

    Again, thanks for doing this–very inspiring!

    Good for you! It’s called portion control. If more people ate only half of a humongous bagel (or cinnamon roll or hamburger, etc.) there would be much less obesity and a great deal of money saved.
