Is 'Healthy' Fast Food for Real? Menu Nutrition Surprises - TIME Healthland
That's the killer. You need to know exactly what you're ordering. They aren't butchering the chickens on the premises.
I eat low carb; I avoid veggies at fast food joints because of the risk of food borne illness (I don't place a lot of trust in people racing around, often with limited life experience or common sense, getting my salad packaged without getting something nasty in it). I'll eat meat & eggs sans salad or bread. I love mcdonald's sausage egg mcmuffins...without muffins. It comes straight from the heat to my container, limited chance of contamination and the ingredients are pretty basic.
I tried the McDonalds oatmeal...it was pretty good I thought. And apparently the nutritional facts weren't too bad either. A little good new for when you want a healthy snack from a fast food chain at least.
