Thomas Bagel Thins Review + Recipe

*Disclaimer - I received a gift card, and full value coupons, in exchange for this post.  In no way did this alter my review.  All of my opinions expressed in this post are one-hundred percent honest and true. Everything expressed in this review is by Mizz Review Lady, not the Thomas brand.*

As many of you may know my goal for 2014 is to lose a total of 40 lbs.  Dieting and exercise has proved to be very difficult. One of the things I have struggled with is what to eat. I have found that I don't have to eliminate my favorite food all together, I just need to come up with healthy alternatives. For example, I love bagels,  but a full size bagel seems to contain too many calories. But the Bagel Thins by Thomas prove to be a healthy alternative because they contain only 110 calories.  In addition to the Bagel Thins, Thomas also offers Pocket Thins and Sandwich Thins, which are also low in calories.


For this review, I was asked to create a recipe using and of the Weight Watchers Thins products. I thought of several recipes, before I came up with an excellent idea - Skinny Breakfast Bagel Thin Sandwich.  I made a list of the ingredients, and then headed to my local Walmart to pick up all of the ingredients, using a gift card that was provided to me for this review.  I wasn't able to locate the Bagel Thins where the bread is usually sold.  After searching the store, I ended up finding the items on an end cap, near the frozen section.

I usually order my hamburgers when we are out eating on Thomas's English Muffins. They taste great and have less carbs than regular buns.
