  • On the news this morning:

    McDonalds is rolling out a "healthier" (according to CBS) egg McMuffin - they ditched the yolk and the english muffin is now whole grain. The canadian bacon will also be extra lean.

    So now it will not only BE crap, but it will TASTE like crap, too.

    Seriously, that's just pathetic.

    CBS News - McDonalds Introduces the "Egg White Delight" Yolk-Free Egg McMuffin
    Durp.

    • If only they would offer a double yolk version! (I know, they are probably pouring it out of a carton, not cracking an egg. Still, one could dream.) I have eaten those in a pinch (tossing the muffin) and egg, Canadian bacon, with cheese is a nice little on-the-road snack.

          My mom worked for MD's for a while and said that (at the time anyways-about 6 years ago) they actually used real eggs
          Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

            They use cracked eggs for the McMuffins (the "grill poached" eggs where there's actually a yolk and a white), but liquid or powdered eggs for everything else (liquid vs. powdered depends on the type of egg/sandwich, and I can't remember right now).

            I've always preferred the McD's mcmuffin eggs over any other fast food breakfast eggs...

              • Two things happened today that made me struggle to keep my mouth shut.

                1) At Starbucks as I waited for my chai latte (made with cream) to be made, a woman's order came out: "iced caramel macchiato, extra caramel". The woman asked, "Nonfat milk, right? And double the caramel?"

                2) Overhearing a coworker telling another coworker that she's no longer eating "unhealthy garbage"; instead she purchased a meal replacement powder she's drinking twice daily.

                  • My in-laws are visiting and they told me about the "healthier" McD's breakfast as well. :eyeroll:

                    They are here for less than four days and brought two 12 (24?) packs of pepsi and diet pepsi. Seems like that's all they're drinking. Mind you, they have a ton of health problems. Diabetes, etc.
                    What did they also bring? 6 donuts, I guess for breakfast today. Wow.

                    Oh, but they congratulated me on sticking to my new "diet". Not a diet, people. Haha.
                    I'm just venting, they are nice, but very stuck in CW.

                          • Right so I caught a look at the nutritional advice sheet given to a family member newly diagnosed with diabetes...guess what was recommended..wait for it..A LOW FAT DIET and the advice that "starch should make up the majority of your intake".

                            WAIL!!!!

                            Amongst the "foods to avoid" were avocado, coconut and (this one is really stupid) CAVIAR (presumably because of those TERRIBLE fattening fish oils)! Fake spreads and dairy substitutes were advocated but CAVIAR IS EVIL. What made me laugh is - who actually eats enough caviar to worry about avoiding it even if it WERE bad for you!? Maybe the Queen does but most people don't.

                            Eggs were also severely restricted. I thought even CW people knew that eggs were healthy and I thought avocados had been redeemed ages ago?! I thought CW loves mono and vitamin E. WTF.

                            I am saddened really because I don't want the person in question to a) feel miserable about their predicament and feel they are limited to joyless bird food and b) die

                              Yeah, I'm surprised at avocado, which CW seems to hold up as the King of the Good Fats. Eggs though, tend to still be demonized. Just yesterday, I had a friend (the same one in all my funny CW stories lol) freak out when I said that I had three eggs for breakfast because "that's a TON of cholesterol, be careful!"

                                That seems very random. Like telling people to really restrict their Fois Gras intake.
                                If your friend is depressed....turn them on to Primal.
