i had Breakfast Lunch Dinner Dessert Courtesy of Klout Perks & McDonalds #imlovinit

we begin with a morning essential: Premium Roast Coffee. Fresh Hot & DeLish! i take mine black no sugar. Stayed hot for up to 90 mins after purchase & not a single ground when i reached the bottom of the cup. i opted for the medium size which by most comparisons was a generous portion.

Next: Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie [medium size] Again a generous portion by most comparisons. i like smoothies but am reluctant to have them unless i make them myself because it's difficult to find pre-mades that don't have banana in the blend. i like bananas but they tend to trigger my migraines so obviously i try to avoid them. No worries with MickyD's Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie---yes it has no bananas :D Cool smooth & refreshing.

Breakfast: Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait: Yummy vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberries & strawberries topped with crunchy granola. So good you would never guess it's only 150 calories.

Fruit & Maple Oatmeal w/diced apples & cranberry raisin blend. i prefer my oatmeal without the light cream that usually accompanies this offering & was able to have it without. The oatmeal was really good---nice & thick. And the fruit---uht-oh here comes that phrase again---generous portions. Not only that the apples were very crisp & there were golden & red raisins. The cranberry added a nice tartness. The copy on the container says it---"wholesome meets delicious".

Lunch: McDonald's Hamburger. The classic. "The mouthwatering original" Inhaled it. Side Salad, was tasty clean & crisp. i opted for no dressing but for those who prefer with there are 5 Newman's Own varieties offered. Bonus! Reusable bowl :D

Dinner: Crispy Chipotle BBQ Snack Wrap i requested my wrap without cheese & my request was granted. The chipotle bbq sauce was perfect not too hot not too mild. i opted for the crispy chicken [grilled is also available]. It was juicy with lettuce tucked into a soft & fluffy flour tortilla. Thumbs-up.

McChicken. Crispy chicken breast filet on a bun dressed with shredded lettuce, & mayo. i like the spicy flavor of the chicken the texture of the lettuce & the tang of the mayo. Devoured it.

Dessert: Soft Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sweet [but not overly so] & chewy good. Soft Baked Chocolate Chip Cookie. Really good the semi-sweet chocolate chips melted in my mouth.

All these goodies came to a total of only $16.79 from my collection of McDonald's McArch cards from Klout. Even if i had paid out of pocket that still would have been very economical. And i was able to select from many healthy choices. Bottom line you can eat healthfully and economically at McDonald's.
Another bonus, when you visit McDonald's website the menu explorer gives you nutritional, caloric & ingredient information so there's no doubt or confusion when counting calories or checking for possible allergy inducing ingredients.

Thanks again for the perks Klout & McDonald's #imlovinit
