McDonald's Egg White Delight

A Review


McDonald's-egg-white-delight
I woke up late for an early morning appointment and I didn't have time to make breakfast. Hunger called me to McDonald's and I was going to get an egg mcmuffin, but I didn't know they have introduced a lower fat twin.

My first client durning the week is at 5:00 a.m. and I don't like getting up 30 minutes earlier to eat breakfast, so I usually have a piece of fruit and a fiber/protein bar in my car. McDonald's is my usual stop, if I don't prepare the night before. My first choice was the egg Mcmuffin. The egg Mcmuffin was McDonalds's leanest and healthiest breakfast sandwich.  I have preached to clients and clients taking my fitness classes, that if you have to stop at Mickey Dee's for breakfast, buy the egg Mcmuffin, oatmeal, or yogurt parfait.  The egg white sandwich is even better because it is made with an egg white instead of the whole egg, which has less calories and fat.  It has a whole wheat english muffin which has more fiber than the plain english muffin.  The total calories in the Egg White Delight is 250 and the egg Mcmuffin has 50 extra calories.

Of course you want to know how it taste, it was pretty good and you could tell it was healthier.  I used to buy the egg Mcmuffin, take out the yolk of the sandwich but that was a messy job.  I appreciate McDonald's making the choice to cater to a segment of the population that is demanding healthier alternatives to their menu.  What is your go to breakfast if you are running late?

  2. Cool, I didn't know they offered an egg white option, however the yolk isn't all that bad as people make it out to be. It is actually a source of healthy fats.

    1. That is true but for people like me, I need to watch my cholesterol.

    2. I find that there is so much misinformation now a days about cholesterol in food and how it relates to the cholesterol in your body. Is it too much to go in to here, but have a look around and do some research, the cholesterol in food doesn't effect the cholesterol in our bodies the way we may think. A good documentary I would recommend watching is Fat Head.

  3. I followed you here from The Wondering Brain to thank you for reading and commenting on my guest post! Whoa, I love the idea of McDonald's doing this! Unfortunately, here in England, the only McMuffin option is the normal one. I've joined your site via GFC & added you to my circles on G+. I'm also going to follow you on Pinterest!

  4. I have wondered if this was good. You just never know sometimes when something new comes out. I rarely eat out, but this might be something I will try soon. Thanks!

  5. I am in love with these sandwiches, and found that if you order it with no cheese ... you drop another 50 calories, making it still tasty but only 200 calories. Healthy, low cal, quick and tasty?? Sounds like a WIN to me. :)
