Review: Dr Zak's Protein Bagels

If you follow me on Twitter (@LucysBeautyBlog - shameless plug), you'll know I've been focusing on improving my nutrition and working out as much as possible. I try to eat 140g of protein per day, though this can be quite difficult to achieve, especially since I don't eat meat for the most part, so when Dr Zak's got in touch to let me try their new Protein Bagels, with a hefty 24g protein per serving, I had to see what all the fuss was about.

Dr Zak's Cinnamon and Raisin Protein Bagels / £3.49 for 4 bagels

The best thing about these bagels, obviously, is their macronutrients - they contain 24g of protein, 36g of slow burning carbs and almost 5g of fibre per serving (and that's without the additional fillings, which can further boost the protein content)! However, that's not to say that Dr Zak's sacrificed on taste to pack in such great macros. In fact, the texture and taste is just as you would expect; filling, thick, stodgy and delicious! You genuinely would not know that it wasn't just your run-of-the-mill standard bagel.

Now, cinnamon and raisin isn't a flavour I was too sold on at first, as I generally don't enjoy a mixture of sweet and savoury (pain au chocolat being the worst offender), but it is actually a very subtle flavour that works really well with the texture. I could happily enjoy them as a sweet or a savoury, my favourite filling of choice being soft cheese, and thankfully the raisins were few and far between and simply offered a zing of juiciness every now and then (any other raisin-phobes out there?).

The only real downside to these is that they are fairly expensive for only four bagels, but this is to be expected when you're buying special protein-enhanced foods. When you consider the cost of protein powders and supplements, you can understand why the hefty price tag. They still work out at around 90p per bagel, so once you've created some delicious healthy fillings, it's still a less expensive option than heading to Pret on your lunch - and with a hell of a lot more protein!

How are you meeting your macros?
