Low Carb Everything Bagels

I have been mostly grain-free for the past 2 years and one thing that I do miss from time to time is a great bagel.  I can’t remember the last time I had a bagel made with flour.  It aggravates my gluten sensitivity and they really aren’t worth eating to me any longer.  But today, do I have a great recipe for you!!!!  These bagels are made with almond flour.  They are easy to toast, make as a sandwich, or enjoyed with cream cheese.  The best part is that they are easy to make and the dough does not need to rise.

Zucchini Zoodles With Sardines, Tomatoes & Capers

WAIT!!!  Don’t let the word SARDINE scare you away!!!  If you love tuna, you will LOVE sardines!!  They are so delicious!  Sardines are small fish, so they contain less mercury than most other deep, cold water fish.  Sardines are one of the most concentrated sources of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which have been known to lower triglycerides and cholesterol levels.  A 3.2 ounce serving of canned, wild caught sardines contain 338% daily value of vitamin B-12, 87% daily value of selenium, 61% daily value of omega-3 fats, 45% daily value of protein, 44% daily value of vitamin D and 35% daily value of calcium!  That’s a big bang for your buck!
