McDonald’s is everywhere across the United States, so chance are you’ll find yourself in one for a meal from time to time even if you’re on a low-salt, low-fat, low-sugar diet. I actually go to a local McDonald’s once a week, getting a salad and bringing my own oil and vinegar packets so I don’t use the high-salt Paul Newman dressings.
Salads were on the list, but one tip I didn’t know about was asking for the Southwest salad, my usual, without the cilantro-lime glaze can cut the sugar in it substantially. The story doesn’t say it, but I’m thinking that would cut the salt as well, which would suit me. I’m going to try this next time I buy one.
The Egg McMuffin made the breakfast list along with the oatmeal. I don;t normally go to McDonald’s for breakfast, but for those that do, this could be a good guide on what to buy.
