McDonald's can get a pretty bad rap but I have some great memories of going there. Back when I was in third grade, my parent’s purchased a farm about an hour and a half from where we lived. We would go up there most Friday nights and spend the weekend there. We would pick my dad up from work and often stop at McDonald's on the way. I remember getting a Big ‘N Tasty sandwich and enjoying them in the car on the way up north with my family. Now, we still go up north to the farm but not every weekend and we often don't travel together. McDonald's was a quick meal for us. We would also often get their side salads.
The family up north at my parent's farm last year.
Now, there are a few things that I like to get from McDonald's when I am on the go. I like their coffee and like that I can get it half-decaf. Another favorite is the Egg White Delight McMuffin. It has egg whites, an English muffin made with 8 grams of whole grain, cheese and Canadian bacon. On the go, this makes a good breakfast.
I've also gotten their Fruit and Maple Oatmeal which comes with oats, red and green apples, cranberries and raisins. I get mine without brown sugar.
The other items that I like from McDonald's are their Premium Salads. They are full of veggies and good in a pinch. I like to stop at McDonald's early in the morning before going to the farmer's market or for an inexpensive coffee while I am away from home.
There are many options from McDonald's that are not nutritious but when I am busy and on the go, I think that they have plenty of wholesome options available.
