Nutrition On the Go: Healthiest Options at McDonald's

Next On the Nutrition On the Go Series is McDonald's. McDonald's is a very popular fast food joint, so I'm hoping this will benefit a lot of people. With our society growing more health conscious, it is good to be aware how each fast food joint stacks up to one another. Here are the stats for Micky D's...

Healthiest Breakfast

Since breakfast is such an iconic meal at McDonald's, I thought I would give this its own category. Here is my pick for healthiest breakfast:

Egg White Delight McMuffin

Calories: 280

Protein: 18g

Carbohydrates: 29g

Fat: 10g

Healthiest Entree

Of course, we need to single out which entree is best. Are you surprised it's a salad? Here is a quick tip when looking at the menu for McDonald's: if the chicken is the Buttermilk Crispy variety, it's WAY high in fat.

Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad

Calories: 350

Protein: 37g

Carbohydrates: 27g

Fat: 11g

Keto Option

So I am on a roll with this one. Again, as I was browsing the menu, I came across a Keto option and I thought those following the diet would appreciate the mention. Here is my Keto option:

Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad

Calories: 320

Protein: 42g

Carbohydrates: 9g

Fat: 14g

That's a wrap. Hopefully this helps all those McDonald's lovers out. Which fast food chain would you like to see covered next?
