McDonalds Will Serve Breakfast All Day?
McDonalds Will Serve Breakfast All Day?
If you haven’t already heard, McDonald’s is going to finally be serving their breakfast food all day! This will begin on October 6, 2015 as part of their plan to jump start their business. McDonalds have been experiencing declining sales for the past 3 years. With customers demanding better ingredients and the whole of American gearing toward healthier living, McDonald’s is perhaps starting to realize that you can’t feed chemicals to people and have them be happy about it. Consumers are becoming more educated and want better for themselves and their families.
McDonalds already tested their breakfast all-day idea in several cities throughout the United States and found that it was a success. People like to eat breakfast at every time of day! I know my favorite meal is breakfast and I would be happy to live on breakfast food for every meal of every day. Any time I go to a restaurant that serves breakfast all day – 9 times out of 10, I order a breakfast meal. There’s just something relaxing about having a stack of pancakes after a long, stressful day at the office. It somehow just makes you feel just a little happy inside! (That’s how it is for me, at least.)
3 things that Makes Me Happy to Eat McDonalds Breakfast Any Time Of Day:
The Previous Cut-Off Time Was So Silly!
What were they thinking when they decided to only serve breakfast until 10:30 -11am? Seriously? Who, on a Saturday or Sunday feels like rushing out the door to rush and get a McMuffin? That number of people had to be very limited. I know I don’t normally get out the door until around Noon on a weekend day and the last thing I feel like should be the first thing in my belly for the day is a cheeseburger. I always end up going to Eat-N-Park or Sheetz for something breakfast-like on those days – occasionally, I’ll choose IHOP as well.
The Egg McMuffin is Actually Relatively Healthy, for Fast Food!
While they will soon be changing the Liquid Margarine to real butter, the only other ingredients in an Egg McMuffin are an English Muffin with 8g of whole grain, 1 egg, Pasteurized Process American Cheese, and Canadian Syle Bacon (which let’s face it – is HAM). At only 300 calories, 13 grams of fat, 31 carbs, 17 grams of protein, and 750mg of sodium – I would venture to say the absolute worst part of this meal is the sodium. The sodium can be counteracted with a large water or unsweetened tea with your meal and being conscientious of salt intake for the remainder of the day. While, I wouldn’t say you should grab a McMuffin every chance you get – its certianly budget friendly and won’t leave you feeling guilty after your meal. Its perfectly okay and will leave you feeling full.
McGriddles Anytime I want!
I’m would say I am sorry, but I am not. One of the most unhealthy items on the McDonald’s menu is the McGriddle and I love it and I do like to eat one on occassion. I know it has to be on rare occassion but there is just something so good about eating sausage, egg and cheese between two syrupy pancakes! Mmmmm. I’m not even going to post the nutritional information because it’s that scary. I see an increase in my McGriddles coming very soon. I might have to get one once a month instead of once every 6 months 🙂 If only they had nutritional stats similiar to the McMuffin…
The image below is directly from McDonalds.com and illustrates the current ingredients and nutritional facts of the Egg McMuffin. It does not display what the nutritional facts will be once they transition to real butter once their liquid margarine supply depletes – a change they announced earlier this week! I absolutely abhor margarine, so I am so thrilled about this minor change in the food ingredients.
“McDonalds Will Serve Breakfast All Day” – these are magic words to my little ears. I have secretly wished for this to happen since I was old enough to know there was a cut off time for breakfast!
