Jeff and Dev--I suppose those breakfast sandwiches they sell at McDonalds may be high in fat and sodium. The kind I make are not, and when I order one in the cafeteria, it is made to my specs. I like English muffins rather than a bagel, one scrambled egg (no salt) and Canadian bacon or ham. No cheese, butter, or fatty meat.

Burritos are the same way...they can be very bad for you if not prepared to your specification.

A little fat is actually good for people every day. It provides nutrients, satisfies hunger, and helps you think better. The brain is actually composed of fatty tissue! Just a little bit does the trick. Was it Julia Child who said "Everything in moderation."


Yuk! McDonalds.  Ewe I havent had anything from there in a year.  I mean it maybe once a year!  The menu is wierd, and I dont know what to look for, so the cashiers look at me.  I know some folks eat McDonalds regular.  I cant stomach it or any other fast food except subway.  :)

hell no. my cousin Kevin shot a bull that will score out at 310 or 320. he was huge. then shot another, which his mom tagged, then we sent him home (sheesh). no one else got anything, but I really go for the poker, the JD, and some 'man' time. of course the girls go too--they actually appreciate the time their men are having  ;D

My weakness, which I'm proud to say I don't indulge too often, is the breakfast sandwiches from Dunkin' Donuts: Sausage, egg, and cheese on a croissant. OMG, they are s-o-o-o good! I don't even want to know the fat and sodium content. ...  :-\

Subway sandwiches are good. When I visit my dad, we often split a foot-long sandwich for lunch.  :)

Sausage, egg, and cheese on a croissant.

Friend Jeff, that sounds like a great breakfast except sausage has a lot of fat and salt. Egg has more fat (just in the yolk part) and sometimes salt is added while cooking. Cheese has a lot of fat. A croissant? Fat again, plus salt. Totalled up, that sounds like the worst formula for a breakfast sandwich you could get!! Next time you see a Dunkin Doughnuts, run the other way!!!

I just finished my breakfast sandwich...a plain bagel with no butter or cream cheese, a slice of ham, and a scrambled egg. Just right for me...not enuff fat to make my brain shut down, but enufff to keep it purring until lunch. I have a lot of vices, but not many of them are in the eating category. Don't have much of a sweet tooth either, though I'm succumbing more and more these days after hanging around Offline Chuck, who likes to take a little tea with his sugar and honey in the morning. He also FORCED me to try a multilayered chocolate and raspberry torte at the Carnegie Deli that I'm dreamining about a week later!! That guy is so baaad!!
May 2019 be better for us all.

Hey, I never said it was a healthy breakfast. I just said it was a weakness in which I did not indulge too often.

Here's something I indulge in from time to time... perhaps only Canadians will recognise this..

Poutine




French fries topped with cheese and gravy!

Here's some data I gathered last winter that some readers might find interesting.

I had gotten tired of toast for breakfast every morning. I've never been real big on cold cereal, but from time to time I get a craving for a bowl of raisin bran or shredded wheat, so I started to vary my breakfast routine. Instead of eating toast every day, I varied it with Kellogg's Raisin Bran, Post Shredded Wheat 'n' Bran, Quaker Oats, and Thomas' Whole Wheat English Muffins, in addition to the locally made whole wheat bread I always use.

Then I got concerned about the amout of carbs in my diet, so I checked labels and put together this list of calories and carbs in what I was eating for breakfast.

Kellogg's Raisin Bran (1 cup with 1/2 cup skim milk): 250 Cal., 45 g Carbs.
Post Shredded Wheat 'n' Bran (1 cup with 1/2 cup skim milk): 240 Cal., 49 g Carbs.
Quaker Oats (1/2 cup dry): 150 Cal., 27 g Carbs.
100% whole wheat bread (2 slices): 200 Cal., 36 g Carbs.
Thomas' Whole Wheat English Muffins (1 muffin): 120 Cal., 23 g Carbs.
