Celebrate National Bagel Day with Free Bagels at Einstein Bros. Bagels

In celebration of National Bagel Day, Einstein Bros. Bagels is offering a free bagel and shmear with purchase to all guests on Saturday, February 9. This deal is part of the chain’s newly-launched “Power of the Bagel” campaign, which is shining light on the surprising amount of protein in bagels.

“National Bagel Day is the perfect time to celebrate how much protein bagels actually have,” says Registered Dietitian Kelly Springer, MS, RD, CDN. “We regularly see people looking for plant-based proteins that provide essential nutrients while still tasting delicious. With at least 9 grams of protein, Einstein Bros.’ bagels are a plant-based breakfast food that don’t compromise on taste.”

The power of Einstein Bros. bagels is real, averaging 10 grams of protein. While bagels may not be comparable in other nutrients, any one Einstein Bros. bagel contains as much or more protein than a large egg, three slices of turkey, two tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, or one cup of two percent milk.

The National Bagel Day offer from Einstein Bros. Bagels is available at participating locations, excluding license stores inside of colleges, airports, hotels and hospitals. Learn more about the power of the bagel by visiting www.powerofthebagel.com and www.einsteinbros.com.

This burger was perfectly seasoned and very tasty. I personally was not a fan of the lettuce, but then again I’m not a fan of lettuce. I just took it off. I did, however, enjoy the Angus beef patties, bacon, and a fried egg on top. It was like an elevated breakfast situation. The fries were great as well!

Vegan Beyond Burger

a plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like traditional beef. Featuring a Beyond Burger Patty, topped with pickles, onions, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, and American cheese. You can also enjoy it vegan style without mayonnaise and cheese.

I’ve been a fan of Beyond Meat products for quite some time, so I was very excited to see it as one of BurgerFi’s Build a Better You Resolution-Friendly menu options. If you’re celebrating Veganuary this month definitely stop BurgerFi and pick up this delicious vegan burger.

More resolution-friendly options include:

Grilled Chicken Sandwich: a free-range, all-natural chicken breast, topped with lettuce, tomato and drizzled with a honey mustard BBQ sauce.

A Little Treat

I couldn’t leave without indulging in a frozen treat! It was adorned with brownies, chocolate sprinkles, and chocolate sauce, topped with whipped cream. You gotta have whipped cream on top!

I Had My First 100 Layer Donut and Fell in Love with Five Daughters Bakery

Five Daughters Bakery recently opened their new location in Ponce City Market. I’ve been seeing the Instagram post about how delicious they were. Well I finally got to taste for myself!

They are known for their 100 layer donut, their version of a cronut. Yummm!! It takes them 3 days to craft this croissant donut hybrid, but well worth the time. When I took a look at the many delicious choices, the one that was screaming for my to take it home with me was the Lime Meringue. It was so cute with its toasted meringue, dusted with lime zest. Gimme! After paying and have a photo shoot, it was time to taste this 100 layers of deliciousness. Yummmmmm.

That first bite was amazing! The second bite was even more amazing. I loved the lightness of the donut. I loved that the lime custard inside was not too sweet. The meringue on top was perfect! I absolutely loved everything single bite of this donut. Bravo. Five Daughters Bakery.Bravo.

I Ate 32 Wings Today…Tales of a Hungry Girl in Atlanta

Today was the 3rd Annual Springer Mountain Farms Southern Wing Showdown. If you have a love for wings, this was the place to be. If you have a love for adventurous flavors, this was the place to be. Basically you should have been there!

The sold out event featured 32 southern chefs, each putting their take on the all mighty chicken wing. After attendees tasted all of the wings, they then voted on their favorite.

There were soooo many amazing wings! Just when you thought you definitely tasted your favorite, the next chef blows your mind with another delicious wing! I personally had several favorites.

My most favorite was from Funk Seoul Brother with their Hot Honey Butter Korean Fried Chicken with Smoked Cashews and Mu Radish Bourbon Pickles. Oh what a tasty bite that was!!

The winner of the showdown was Canoe’s Chef Matthew Basford with his Sichuan Spiced Wing with Gochujang Honey Mustard. That was a tasty wing too!! Congrats Chef!!

Well I left a very happy and full girl! Can’t wait till next year!!
