Before you get too excited about the new “healthy” breakfast option at McDonald’s, read Mark Bittman’s article from The New York Times. This information should not surprise you – if it's from McDonald’s, it's probably not a healthy, whole food that should become a regular part of your diet.
“The McDonald’s product contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin.”
Those things are bad, yes. But most of you know by now that I’m not much of a calorie counter. It’s more about the ingredients in the foods you are eating. Apparently this particular oatmeal has around 15 ingredients. Hmmm. Seems to me oatmeal should have just 1 ingredient: oats!
I’ll let you read the rest HERE… including how to make your own oatmeal at home in a matter of minutes – faster than it would take you to drive through at McDonald’s!
Have a great weekend!
