I have a confession to make, I am addicted to McDonald’s. My love of breakfast (and sweet tea) is well known by my friends and colleagues. The problem is that a sweet tea and a couple of breakfast burritos per day is not good for either the waistline or the pocket book.
Lately I haven’t been feeling the healthiest. Not that I’m feeling terrible, just sluggish and yucky. Typically when I feel like this is because I’m overloading on non-healthy food, sugar, caffeine with a little bit of not exercising thrown in.
Outside of the fact that I love their sweet tea and burritos, one of the reasons I stop every day at McDonald’s is the convenience. Having a non-fast food breakfast requires planning and forethought – how fun is that? You’re right, it’s not very fun at all but a necessity if I want to improve my eating habits.
One trick that I’ve been using is to buy the Jimmy Dean Delight Breakfast Bowls. They’re very yummy and I can get them for about $2.19 at my grocery store which is only a couple of pennies more expensive than my McDonald’s run (minus my sweet tea). Of course, my next thought is “I can make that myself and save myself the money!”
The beauty of making your own breakfast bowl is that 1) you can choose your own ingredients 2) it’s significantly cheaper 3) no preservatives or additives.
