Bagels: a surprisingly great source of iron

Bagels are a Montreal institution, and a frequent breakfast choice for me as of late. St-Viateur Bagel and Fairmount Bagel are famous for their round slightly sweet and chewy texture. I firmly believe the only good bagels are the ones from Montreal. The ones I've had outside of Montreal, or at Tim Hortons for that matter, have been disappointing cakey messes.

I've been eating a whole lot of the all dressed bagels lately (onion, garlic, caraway, sesame seeds , poppy seeds and salt). Did you know that one bagel served a whopping 25% of the daily recommended intake of iron? Yum!
