    I would most likely pick the bagel. Even with cheese, etc., I think much more benefit than a doughnut. Especially if your going to a work out after

    What are the benefits of a bagel versus a doughnut when it comes to working out?

    I have been craving an everything doughnut from a local shop and they have not had them in. That would be my personal choice for sure.

    100% bagels. I'm not a fan of doughnuts. Don't get me wrong, I am a pig who will eat anything, but donuts are one of the last things I'd choose when going for something sweet.

    Bagels on the other hand are one of the best things ever. I don't eat them often though because it's a lot of calories for something that I devour very quickly and doesn't fill me up much.

    There were no bagels on Roatan. I got home too late to make it to the bagel shop, and they are closed Monday and Tuesday. Poor me; I had to eat civeche and grilled whole fish.

    Anything with a big hole in it - cuts down on calories! :)

    Doughnuts especially fresh made from a real doughnut shop. Are the best.

    Plain glazed Daylight Donuts = measly 166 calories, at least according to MFP, so I can have two.

    I posted this on the "are you still eating out" thread, but it bears repeating here because... BAGEL!

    I want to keep my bagel shop open, so I ran out there as part of a careful trip to the post office and to fill up the truck with fuel.

    Today was their pastrami bagel (cream cheese, pastrami, tomato, red onion, green onion) on a poppy seed bagel. I also got a firestick (jalapeno bagel dough but not round and rolled in cheddar before baking). Being I had just been out at the post office and the gas station, I got it to go. Bonus is I get to enjoy it with a cat on my lap!

    Bagel, always. Unless I'm in Maine, then it's got to be one from the "Holy Donut". I've planned whole vacations around that donut shop. And I don't even like donuts.

    @onward1 -- So what's with Holy Donuts?

    My bagel shop was happy to see me swing through yesterday for two to-go. I hope they can stay afloat until we're allowed to socialize again.

    My office is so slow to respond to the crisis, I kind of wanted to take a dozen doughnuts in yesterday just as a protest. I guess I could have got a dozen bagels....

    Bagels ! Now I gotta go to the store for bagels... lots of bagels so no one else buys them up!

    I love everything bagel with herbs and garlic cheese. Also sun-dried tomato bagel.

    I cautiously went to the bagel shop yesterday. I got four bagels for my neighbors who needed them. For myself, I got their version of lox which is cream cheese, lox, tomato, red onion, green onion, and capers. I also got a bagel to go, and couldn't stop myself from a bag of assorted day-old bagels for later. I am pleased I didn't eat them ALL, but I got close.

    Bonus of bringing it home is a proper plate instead of a wax paper square in a plastic basket.


    Neighbors were very glad to get a paper sack full of fresh bagels. G. went out early yesterday to the grocery. When she got home, S. asked if she got bread -- she didn't. So they were even better than they would have been, and they would have been good anyway.

    After that, S. and I took boats (him in a sit-on-top kayak and me in a whitewater canoe) about a third mile to the boat ramp and paddled up the East channel to the old gravel pond and back. There were a few new obstacles, but we were able to make it all the way up and back. The fish didn't bother us ONE BIT. Maybe I'll take a tiny kayak out today, but first I have two more bagels to eat.

    Neither~ The average donut exceeds 300 calories and that's just your casual chocolate store bought. I've got no idea how many the ones with fillings got... I'd imagine it would approach the 500s.

    Bagels~ Are healthier but not by much. A single bagel offers a whopping 245 calories. Note that's just a plain bagel with nothing on it. A tablespoon of cream cheese nets you another hundred for little nutritional value. I would rather have a slice of toast with a serving of peanut butter. About the same amount of calories but more balanced macros.

    To compare my average protein drink with 2% milk taste better, offers 100x more nutritional value and sits around 200 calories. Throw a banana in their and I got me a nice little snack. 👍
