The FTC requires me to tell you that I am a brand ambassador for McDonald's of Central Arkansas. But mainly, I talk about McDonald's because I (and my kids) love the place.
I'm going to be honest. I was planning to do a post this month about "healthy meal options" at McDonald's. We have been making an even more concerted effort to shop for and cook healthy meals at our house this year, and I wanted to show that you can make similar choices at McDonald's, which you totally can. (Order yourself a Premium Southwest Salad like I planned to or get a Grilled Chicken Snack Wrap or a Yogurt Parfait...)
But last week when Selah and I pulled into McDonald's for a late lunch before my baby doctor appointment... I was starving. It was 1:00, I had barely eaten that day, and signs everywhere reminded me McDonald's now serves breakfast all day! It was settled. I ordered a Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit.
Y'all, I didn't feel bad about it even a little bit.
I am crazy about breakfast food... eggs, bacon, sausage, gravy, all of it. But I rarely eat those things because my stomach can't handle big breakfasts early in the mornings. So the option to treat myself to some of my favorite guilty pleasure foods at LUNCH was a no brainer! My Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit was warm and delicious and gone way too soon. I ordered the meal, which also came with hash browns and a drink, and devoured it all before you know who could ask for a bite.
(Side note -- Cutie oranges are now available in Happy Meals again! My girl was pretty excited about this.)
In case you're curious, here are all the options available on the "All Day Breakfast" menu.
-Sausage McMuffin (with or without egg)
-Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit
-Sausage Biscuit (with or without egg)
-Hotcakes (with or without sausage)
-Fruit 'n Yogurt Parfait
-Fruit & Maple Oatmeal
So whether you want a lite and healthy lunch or whether you want to indulge because you're starving or you're pregnant or just a little too crazy about bacon, call up someone special and plan a lunch date today. ;-)
