Oatmeal at McDonald's?

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!
