McDonalds, a Great Place for Breakfast Even When Dieting
Whenever we're on the go, particularly when scouting out the state parks and recreation areas, we often find ourselves fast-fooding-it, particularly for the most important meal of the day - breakfast.
After all, it's the meal that will get your metabolism going - and the sooner you eat after rising from your overnight rest, the sooner it's going to gear into action.
One of our favorite spots for breakfast is McDonalds on these occasions.
Since most fast foods tend to be high in calories I carry along a personalized McDonalds breakfast menu which contains the food selections that will fit into my diet - according to calories.
You can get your own simply by requesting it from your server the next time you dine-in.
McDonalds Breakfast Menu - Low Calorie Choices
*Based on Scrambled Eggs.
Can't Beat Eggs for Breakfast
Although high in cholesterol content, it's difficult to beat an incredible edible egg when it comes to that first meal of the day. Oatmeal comes in close - as does other whole grain cereals - whether they arrive at the table hot or cold.
The thing about eggs is that they are so light in caloric values - even the ones prepared at most fast food restaurants.
In the above data chart we can see that they contain less than two hundred calories - and that's for two scrambled eggs. One English Muffin contains about the same values (kcals).
A note about the Maple Oatmeal with fruit and walnuts that is served at McDonalds. The last time that I ordered such, it was a watery mess - and luckily, it's a rare thing when this restaurant delivers low quality food. One thing in our personal experience is that they are consistent.
I made the error of throwing mine away - which made me ill to my stomach - not because the oatmeal was bad. It was because I am on a very limited budget and I had paid good money for the product.
It wasn't a situation where I could return the order to the restaurant. It was about half full of liquid - watery liquid. If I had that to do over, I should have taken the oatmeal home and popped it into my microwave to enjoy at a later time during the day.
That liquid on top was indeed water; the oats were still hard and crunchy.
If you find yourself in this situation and can't return the product, I hope this tip will come in handy for you!
