Bagel and cream cheese is a perfect duo to satisfy your soul with a delicious treat. But you can’t neglect the fact that bagels are high in carbohydrates, which can lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar levels. Further, the cream is a good source of saturated fat and increases insulin levels. Additionally, many bagels contain added sugars, which can further increase blood sugar levels.

Optimise Bagel Intake with a Few Moderations
• Try to add vegetables to the bagel sandwich to make it non-starchy and add cooked protein (100 gms).
• Try to switch regular bread with almond flour, lupin or handmade sourdough.
• Consider eating an open sandwich.
• Try to control the proportion to improve glucose response.

Too many bagels can lead to long-term health problems. Due to their high carbohydrate content, bagels should be eaten in moderation and with other foods that contain protein and healthy fats to help slow down the release of glucose into the bloodstream.

So get your bagel and cream cheese ready and whip up a delicious, nutritious meal for your next snack or meal!
