Today we’re starting to share a few of our favorite things with you…things that we personally enjoy on special occasions. The key here is to remember that this is for an occasional treat; not an everyday kind of thing.

If you’ve been missing having a bagel with cream cheese for breakfast, then this one’s for you. You might especially enjoy this for an Easter brunch!

Here are three products that can bring this simple pleasure back into your life. Whether you’re following a Paleo lifestyle or have moved further toward Keto, we have discovered some amazing products that we’re sure you will enjoy, as well.

First, for those following a Paleo lifestyle (no sugar, dairy, or gluten), let us introduce you to Canyon Bakehouse bagels. These are gluten free and dairy free, and are delicious toasted. 

For those of you who have moved toward Keto, we love Against the Grain bagels. These do contain dairy and egg, so those who have sensitivities will probably want to try the Canyon Bakehouse brand instead.

Now, who wants to have a bagel without cream cheese? We have discovered that Kite Hill products are a fabulous substitute for dairy products. Their almond based cream cheese with chives is yummy on top of a bagel.

So, there you have it: a simple pleasure that you can savor without feeling like you’re sabotaging your healthy lifestyle. Enjoy!

Be Well,
