How to Make Healthy Choices at Burger Chains

I am not much of a fast food eater any more, but I know you folks still in the work force sometimes don’t have the option of going to the fridge and fixing a nutritious meal or snack for yourself as I do.

So here are some suggestions to help you satisfy your hunger without sacrificing your good health from Helpguide.org.


Less Healthy choices
1.    Double-patty hamburger with cheese, mayo, special sauce, and bacon
2.    Fried chicken sandwich
3.    Fried fish sandwich
4.    Salad with toppings such as bacon, cheese, and ranch dressing
5.    Breakfast burrito with steak
6.    French fries
7.    Milkshake
8.    Chicken “nuggets” or tenders
9.    Adding cheese, extra mayo, and special sauces

Healthier choices
1.    Regular, single-patty hamburger without mayo or cheese
2.    Grilled chicken sandwich
3.    Veggie burger
4.    Garden salad with grilled chicken and low-fat dressing
5.    Egg on a muffin
6.    Baked potato or a side salad
7.    Yogurt parfait
8.    Grilled chicken strips
9.    Limiting cheese, mayo, and special sauces

Buon Appetito!

How Many Calories in McDonald’s Mighty Wings?

Mickey D’s has announced it will roll out its newest creation – “Mighty Wings” – next month. The Wings have been tested in three big markets since the beginning of the year. My town, Chicago was one of them.

The wings will come in three, five and 10 piece orders and there will be nine different sauces available. Prices start at $2.99.
Their national debut is scheduled for September 9.

Of course, many of us want to know about the nutritional content of these new creations. I checked with the Mc Donald’s website and could not find anything. This is interesting as they are already promoting the dish. However, there are figures around the web.
