McDonald’s oatmeal: more sugar than a Snickers bar and costs more than double-cheeseburger. WHY SO WRONG?! Just when you’d think that maybe McDonald’s was going to serve something healthy they go and screw it up! Several Slender For Life™ weight loss hypnosis clients have mentioned that McDonald’s now had oatmeal. Oatmeal on the go is convenient and it is a shame that McDonald’s had to muck up something that is so good and healthy. I have always considered oatmeal to be food of the gods so this is really offensive to me.
How to Make Oatmeal . . . Wrong
By Mark Bittman, New York Times, February 22, 2011: The oatmeal and McDonald’s story broke late last year, when Mickey D’s, in its ongoing effort to tell us that it’s offering “a selection of balanced choices” (and to keep in step with arch-rival Starbucks) began to sell the cereal. Yet in typical McDonald’s fashion, the company is doing everything it can to turn oatmeal into yet another bad choice. (Not only that, they’ve made it more expensive than a double-cheeseburger: $2.38 per serving in New York.) “Cream” (which contains seven ingredients, two of them actual dairy) is automatically added; brown sugar is ostensibly optional, but it’s also added routinely unless a customer specifically requests otherwise. There are also diced apples, dried cranberries and raisins, the least processed of the ingredients (even the oatmeal contains seven ingredients, including “natural flavor”).
A more accurate description than “100 percent natural whole-grain oats,” “plump raisins,” “sweet cranberries” and “crisp fresh apples” would be “oats, sugar, sweetened dried fruit, cream and 11 weird ingredients you would never keep in your kitchen.”
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and oatmeal, as I said, is the food of the gods. It is the perfect breakfast to fire up your engine and stabilize your blood sugars throughout the day – that is unless you buy it at McDonald’s
I know it is possible to have healthy and speedy fast food oatmeal. At the Seattle Tacoma Airport there are several take out places that offer a slow cooked oatmeal in a box that you can take with you on the plane. It’s even affordable!
Busy, on the go Slender For Life™ clients discover that there are numerous options for a healthy, hot or cold on-the-go breakfast. One way is to take steel cut oats and cook several days worth at a time and store it in the refrigerator. All you have to do is microwave a serving and you are quickly ready to eat a healthy, hearty breakfast. If you are pressed for time, look for healthy options. McDonald’s clearly isn’t one of them.
