Breakfast in a [time] crunch

Once again...Happy New Year! I feel like I just can't say it enough. 2011 is looking great so far :) Hope it is for you as well!

The new year is all about starting off on the right foot, re-evaluating yourself, your lifestyle and having a good attitude to bring a prospurous new year.
Our local restaurants seem to think the same thing; as seen in my previous post about Starbucks' $2.00 breakfast sandwich deal and now an offer from McDonald's!
Starting January 2011, McD's is offerring their fruit & maple oatmeal. Obviously another breakfast choice because we know breakfast is an important part of our daily eats providing essential vitamins and minerals and overall nutrition-related benefits to kick-start our day [and our metabolism] on the right foot! This is a great on-the-go choice for a busy morning at work or taking the kids to school. Now you have no excuse to miss out on the most important meal of the day! Suggested retailprice of $1.99, available anytime of the day at participating McDonald's in the United States.

The Skinny? 290 calories per serving (including brown sugar).
What else is McD's bragging about? it provides 2 of 3 daily recommended servings of whole grains, about a 1/2 cup of fruit, excellent source of dietary fiber (5 grams per serving) and vitamin C (130% of the daily value) and above all, it's made to order with or without brown sugar!


  1. i really love that McD's has a healthy breakfast option - oatmeal is perfect!! i can't wait to try it!

  2. if you try the oatmeal before me let me know how it is! i'm excited to give it a taste :)
