I think it’s safe to say that New York offers the best bagels, anywhere in the world :). My first old school diner breakfast was in Manhattan about 3 years ago when we had just arrived to the US. I ordered 1 huge bagel piled high with lashings of cream cheese and silky smoked salmon (lox). It was so big I had to get my son Charlie (aka the human trash can) to help me finish it. Nevertheless it was fantastic.
I had a real craving for bagels this morning but I mixed it up to have a 2 course clean eating breakfast. I split a toasted gluten-free bagel (you can use any type of bagel but I’m trying out gluten-free ones this week) and decorated 1 half with lox and cream cheese and the other with peanut butter, strawberries and blueberries.
Peanut butter is one of those great little things for jazzing up toast. A regular portion of peanut butter is 2 tbsp and this contains significant nutrition benefits. It’s a really good source of protein, healthy fats and the mineral potassium. Potassium benefits the workings of the heart plus it helps the nerves function correctly.
