Last week I came home to one of the best packages I’ve ever received.
The awesome, brilliant guys over at P28 were kind enough to send me a VERY generous box of their high protein bread and bagels to devour and review for you all. I have wanted to try their products out for awhile now after reading about it in the blogging world. I enjoy bread and bagels occasionally, but don’t eat much of it because I don’t eat a very carb-heavy diet (kinda shocking for a runner). Too many carbs make me sluggish and make me crave more, feeling unsatisfied which is due mostly to a lack of protein in most forms of carbs. P28 has created a DELICIOUS bread (and bagel!!) that is absolutely packed full of protein and CLEAN, natural ingredients! Ingredients include whole wheat flour, whey protein, raisin juice, sunflower seeds, and sea salt.
Within 2 minutes of the package arriving, I cut open a bagel and toasted up 1/2 with PB2 and cinnamon. I went on to have that snack before bed at least 3 times last week. I also made savory versions on some of the bagels and the bread. Let the pictures make you drool:
The bread and bagels have an amazing sweet smell to them, and taste great both with sweeter toppings and savory. The texture is one of my favorite parts of their products. They are slightly chewy, but fluffy and just all around better than any bread or bagel I’ve had! The stats for 1 slice of bread are 130 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbs, 3 grams of sugar, and 14 grams of protein! A full bagel is 260 calories, 7 grams of fat, 25 grams of carbs, and 28 grams of protein. A.K.A., these babies will keep you full!
P28’s headquarters are located in Syracuse, NY which of course holds a special place in my heart being an upstate NYer! For my upstate readers, you can buy their products in Wegman’s! You can also order from them directly on their website, http://www.highproteinbread.com. They offer a trial pack of either 2 slices of bread or 1 bagel with free shipping so you can sample before you buy a whole loaf. They are great to freeze and pull out when you want one, and last in the freezer for up to 6 months! Read this link to their page that lists their ingredients and the benefits of each one! https://www.highproteinbread.com/baked-goods/p28-trial-pack.
I found that by eating these bagels and breads throughout the week, not only was I satisfied and kept full for longer, but that my carb cravings actually went away! Bagels and bread no longer felt like something I had to wait for cheat day to have. I urge you to start with a sample pack of these and feed those muscles the protein they need! 🙂
