LC Foods sent me a package of 3 LC-NY Style Plain Bagels. The bagels were fresh and looked like real bagels. The first few ingredients are wheat protein isolates, resistant wheat starch, flaxseed meal, olive oil, and vital wheat gluten. These ingredients give the bagels their look, smell and feel. The sweeteners used are organic stevia rebaudiana and natural lo han guo monk fruit which combined helps give the bagel a slightly sweet taste.

There are times when preparing a meal complete with all the side dishes just seems overwhelming. It’s times like this that I go for a main dish salad. I get all my veggies and my proteins in one dish. This means less preparation, less clean up, and more me time. Because I don’t care to spend all my time in the kitchen, I usually prepare my chicken ahead of time and freeze it so all I need to do is thaw it. This Lemon Garlic Chicken Main Dish Salad Recipe is one of favorites. So enjoy your meal and some quiet time to yourself!
