A Wholesome Breakfast and Special Deals at McDonalds

This is a sponsored post brought to you by McDonalds.

Since the new year and all the weight loss goals I have made, I have been seeking healthy options for breakfast. Along with being nutritious, I want them to be quick, easy, and flavorful. Sometimes I found myself getting out early before I’ve had a chance to eat. Thankfully, McDonalds wholesome choices come to my rescue!

I’ve already shared the Egg White Delight, and how much I love to grab one when I’m in a rush and just have time for the drive-thru. There is another menu item that is guilt-free and yummy: McDonalds Fruit & Maple Oatmeal.

What’s Inside the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal

The new Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is freshly prepared with cream, topped with fresh diced red and green apples, tangy dried cranberries, two types of sweet raisins and blended with brown sugar. I am not a big fan of oatmeal, but the fruit that’s piled inside makes it delicious to me!

Nutrition-wise, the oatmeal also contains two-thirds of a day’s worth of 100% natural whole grain oats and a half-cup of fresh and dried fruit, comprising 25% of the FDA’s daily recommended fruit intake. It is also rich in fiber, vitamin C and a good source of protein and iron. Additionally, the Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is the first breakfast item that can be purchased all day!

Fruit & Maple Oatmeal comes in an 8 ounce portion, and it’s very versatile! You can order it with or without brown sugar, plain with no apples, raisins, cranberries and cream, or you can get both the apples and the combined raisin and cranberry packet on the side.

McDonalds Special Deals

I also have some exciting information to pass on to you!

McDonald’s has partnered with Coke Zero and the NCAA to bring exciting deals, contests and activities to Greater Atlanta during the 2013 NCAA Men’s Final Four. Customers why buy a large soft drink from any Great Atlanta McDonalds will get 50% off their admission to Bracket Town fan experience. The event will be held April 5-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center.

If you attend Bracket Town, be sure to visit the McDonald’s Slam area to win prizes, get NCAA legends’ autographs and more!

Also, until March 30 all Greater Atlanta restaurants will feature the Quarter Pounder with Cheese Extra Value Meal for the slam dunk price of $3.99!

    I am very glad that McDonald’s (probably my favorite fast food chain) is making the effort to offer healthier good tasting alternatives. I love all that fruit in the oatmeal.
