TIP OF THE DAY: Healthy Food, Fast Food

Before we tasted McDonald’s berry healthy summer foods, we would not have imagined that we’d spend so much time eating under the golden arches.

But surprise: We’re fans of two new items: Banana Nut Oatmeal and McCafé Cherry Berry Chiller.

Now available nationally, these two limited-time “Flavors Of Summer” are nutritious options that are made to order from fine ingredients.

Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal

Blueberry Banana Nut Oatmeal tops brown sugar-laced oatmeal with fresh, plump blueberries and crunchy walnuts. There is a hint of banana—though we wish there wre more than a hint!

Each portion contains two servings of whole grain* and 1/4 cup of blueberries, one of the highest-antioxidant foods.

Those who like to keep track of nutrition should note that walnuts are arguably the healthiest nuts.

People who prefer their oatmeal without sugar can order the year-round menu staple, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, with fresh apple, raisins and cranberries (it is available with or without brown sugar). If you want the fresh blueberries, just ask.

*Why you need whole grains.

Cherry Berry Chiller

McCafé Cherry Berry Chiller, a fruit slush, is made to order, with 100% fruit juice, natural cherry and raspberry flavors and crushed ice.

Available through September 3rd, while supplies last, the suggested retail prices are $1.69 (small, 12 ounces), $1.99 (medium, 16 ounces) and $2.29 (large, 22 ounces). In hot weather, the large size will be a godsend.

McCafé Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is also part of the summer menu. The McCafé line includes fruit smoothies and espresso drinks, as well.

 

McDonald’s is the leading foodservice provider in the U.S., serving more than than 26 million customers daily at some 14,000 restaurants. More than 11,500 are wi-fi enabled.

So, answer your email as you enjoy a leisurely bowl of oatmeal, followed by a Cherry Berry Chiller chaser.
