It is very good that they have lower calorie choices now. I still don't like to eat processed foods, but in a pinch it's an improvement over past options!
Love their coffee.Of curse I love the sausage biscuit and the flavored coffees.When I stay away from McDs I lose weight.I wonder why?

I don't go to McDonalds very often , but if I do I get a hamburger Happy Meal with lowfat milk, or a small hamburger, a side salad with low fat italian dressing and a diet soda or a bottle of water

I LOVE their oatmeal! So very yummy & I haven't had it in a while. Woohoo - thanks for the reminder! After breakfast, I opt for their bacon, chicken ranch salad, with grilled chicken and a light dressing. So good!

I keep thinking I want to try their egg white delight sandwich, but am just not sure. I LOVE their sausage mcmuffin with egg...soooo good...and soooo many calories :-/.
I haven't tried their oatmeal. I thought it was pretty high for some reason. I am intrigued by both their's and also Chick-fil-a's steal cut oats. Might have to check the calorie counts on those two.
I'll occasionally stop here in a pinch. The Egg McMuffin or parfait are my morning go tos. I will occasionally get a cheeseburger or chicken sandwich (sans mayo) as lunch/dinner which I will pair with fruit which I try to bring with me to have when I know that I may have to grab a sandwich. Not too bad as an occasional meal once in awhile when I'm on the road and need something more substantial than a protein bar.

Like all the FF places, if you look, the better options are out there.

McDonald's often gets a bad rap, IMO. I worked there back around 1979 when they had fewer healthy options. I have been very pleased to see all the healthier options they have now, such as salads, grilled chicken sandwiches, grilled chicken snack wraps, Egg McDelights (which you can order without meat, of course), and oatmeal. The Yogurt Parfait may not be super healthy but it is not the worst choice possible, at 160 calories (I love them). The low fat ice cream cone at 170 calories is just the best!
I realize a lot of people don't go to McDonald's to eat healthier foods but if I am with someone who wants to go to a Fast food restaurant, I usually choose McDonald's because they have reasonably healthy options if you want to make that choice. Even with all that, I am not advocating that anyone eat a McDonald's or any such restaurant all that often. I don't think it is a terrible place to eat on occasion, though.

My favorite is the sausage mcmuffine with cheese and a hashbrown. To many calories.

I use to get the oatmeal all the time, but I discovered Chick fil a steel oats are better.

Oatmeal and salads is about all we order at McDonalds. The kids meal around here has carrot sticks, and apple slices, too. It's far better than some other menu items.
I'm surprised they offer oatmeal. Most people probably don't go to a fast-food joint to order something healthy.

Those places are exactly like the world we live in, some eat healthy some of the time, or most of the time, but not ALL of the time, so they provide what sells, veggie burgers sell, but not enough to keep them on hand all the time, same thing with turkey burgers. If a person wants to worry themselves to death about eating out, carry your cauliflower and tuna in your purse, and order a side salad. Bingo, that is the choice. Every eating establishment can't cater to our tastes at any given moment, and many healthy people have enough "moments" that they want to eat something tasty now and then. Reality.
McDonalds is trying to be healthy. It's kind of ironic with all the junk they have on the menu. But I do like their French fries. I wish they would offer a veggie burger. Burger King used to have one, wonder if they still do.

This is the first time I had breakfast at McDonalds and often make breakfast sandwichs as dinner. I never seen Oatmeal advertised for breakfast or on coupons..just think its a nice option for someone not hungry for a sandwich.

Yes, this choice has been on their menu for years, but it's not mentioned too often. We like the simple egg mcmuffin meal, too, a fast meal, on the run, and not too bad, particularly compared to other junk you could buy at other places or regular restaurants.........it ain't ALL bad!

We had to be somewhere very early this morning, so no time to make breakfast and neither me or my husband felt hungry. So we were running somewhat early and he said lets go to McDonalds for breakfast since there was one close to where we needed to be. I agreed, since I was beginning to feel hungry. He ordered egg, chesse, sausage McMuffin, a hash brown and coffee. As he was placing his order first, I noticed they offered Whole Grain Oatmeal! So thats what I ordered, it came topped with cubed apples and raisins, and ordered a small regular coffee w/1 creamer. I was so happy to see my favorite cereal on the menu and another choice than a breakfast sandwich!
