Cut calories by digging out the hefty middle filling of those big bread servings like bagels, biscuits, croissants, etc.. You can also buy the thin versions of bread e.g. Thomas' Bagel Thins
I wanted to make a quick chicken sandwich on a dinner roll but felt guilty about eating all that bread, so I dug out the middle of the roll and barely noticed the difference in taste.
I enjoy an occasional bagel and found Thomas Bagel Thins (100% whole wheat) in my local grocery store (looks like flatbread). Only 110 calories with 5 grams of fiber! Lightly toast it and add a tsp. of reduced cream cheese or 'light butter' for a yummy and nutritional breakfast entrée.
Bagels can contain 2, 3, or even 4 normal servings of bread. If you must, have a whole wheat mini bagel or whole wheat thin bagels. Thinner bread usually has less carbohydrate and Thomas' 100% whole wheat mini bagels have 22 carbs.
