I decided to write about something a little lighter today and what better to write about than food?

I love eating. I mean, who doesn’t? I’m picky sometimes, but I really do enjoy eating the food I love.

I’m usually hooked on one type of food for a while and these days, it’s bagels. Bagels with cream cheese to be exact. About two weeks ago, I spotted a blueberry bagel in the freezer and I just knew I had to have it even though it seemed pretty old. I immediately popped the bagel into the toaster and rummaged through the refrigerator for some cream cheese. The bagel + cream cheese was delicious.

I don’t know why I’m so in love with bagels. Is there really a reason to why you love eating a particular food other than the fact that it stimulates your tastebuds? Well perhaps it’s because it’s easy to have anywhere at any time of the day. Or perhaps it’s because of how well the chewiness of the bagel goes along with the slightly tart cream cheese. But what I know for sure is that bagels are awesome – especially when you have it fresh with a glass of milk with cream cheese bombarded on the top.

Unlike me, my sister doesn’t like bagels. She says it’s too hard and doesn’t taste like anything. I find this quite surprising, but as I said in my post about the crayon quote, people are different and I figure this is a part of that.

Now in order to try and answer my question about why I am so in love with bagels, I decided to try and figure it out by making a list of why I think they are so awesome.

1. They come in so many types and flavors; you never get bored. Flavors include…
plain, onion, blueberry, cinnamon raisin, poppy, sesame, garlic, pumpernickel, salt, etc. My personal favorites are onion, blueberry, and cinnamon raisin.
2. They’re small and lightweight, so you can have them anywhere.
3. They’re not fried or smothered in sauce, so they’re healthier than other types of bread or pastries.
4. Just one of them can fill you up quite nicely.
5. They have a hole in the middle, so you can put your eye next to them and see through them You also won’t have to worry about losing them because you can keep them on your finger like a ring. LOL
6. They taste good with anything: cream cheese, peanut butter, butter, honey, strawberry jam……. and applying them on the bagel is exciting!
7. They have a shiny surface and it makes them look very appetizing. (and they are!)
8. They’re chewy and it’s kind of fun eating them.

Well, I’m going to go grab a bagel now. Which one should I eat? Onion or blueberry or plain?
Hmmmm… I think I’ll go with blueberry! 😀
