Some days you eat salads and workout ……Other days you eat cupcakes and refuse to put on pants……it’s called balance…..lol. Funny quotes get me every time, especially when there is truth behind them!

Eating healthy….the struggle is real. Real hard as you get older. As I approach the big 60 I find staying in shape extremely difficult. Although I have yo-yoed since my early twenties, I have always found it easy to lose weight. Eat a little less, walk, pilates or yoga a little more.

Veggie Bagel Sandwich

Veggie Bagel Sandwich

Veggie Bagel Sandwich

Back in March of 2014 I made a bagel sandwich that we made in the deli of the grocery store I used to work at,  Vegetable Sandwich with Dill Sauce was my take on that grocery store sandwich.

Fast forward a few years and it’s time for a healthy re-make. Not that the original wasn’t good for you, but there is always room for improvement right???

Since becoming a Weight Watchers point counter, I try and revamp my favorite foods to be the least number of points as possible. Bagel are 9-10 points and cheese is another 4….. thats 14 points…yikes…no way does that fit in my 23 point world!

Veggie Bagel Sandwich

2 ingredient bagel recipes are all over Pinterest. What the heck I gave them a whirl. Impressive is all I can say…..oh wait….. super easy too!! Self rising flour and greek yogurt. I know right too easy!

So, what do they taste like?? Really, really good and they toast up like a dream. Toasted bagels are the base of my Veggie Bagel Sandwich, so I’m off to a good start.

Dill sauce made from greek yogurt, dill, dijon, and a splash of vinegar is the prefect fresh spread for all those veggies.

Veggie Bagel Sandwich

As far as the veggies……..go crazy use what ever veggies you like. In the original I used cheese and feel free to add it if you like. My veggie choice was tomato, cucumber, peppers, and spinach. Next time I will add the red onion that I forgot……

Veggie Bagel Sandwich is a healthy, vegetarian, good for you sandwich. Perfect for that brown bag lunch or anytime you want a light refreshing sandwich.
