I get made fun of quite a bit for eating lox and bagel but its soo good! Its also very healthy and satiating. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it!
Recipe: Serves 1
Cut two mini whole wheat bagels down the middle and toast until browned.
In a small dish, mix together 2 tbsp of cream cheese and a tsp of dill. Spread over the bagels. Sprinkle with salt!
Top with smoked salmon, sliced tomato, and onion slivers.
Smoked salmon * Salmon has one of the highest concentrations of omega 3 fatty acids! Studies show that eating omega 3 rich fish just twice a week can lower blood triglycerides (which are bad for your heart). Salmon is also rich in tryptophan, vitamin D, protein, B vitamins, and selenium!
Tomato * Contains the antioxidant lycopene, which has been found to protect against breast, colorectal, lung, endometrial, prostate, and pancreatic cancer!
Onion * Lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and also have antioxidants.
Whole wheat bagel * The outer bran layer in whole grains is where the fiber, vitamins, and minerals are, which is why you should ditch the white.
