the time i ate mcdonald's for breakfast

(And I don’t even mean an egg McMuffin or hasbrowns, either)



But did you know that a veggie burger and a yogurt don’t actually count as McDonald’s? It’s true. I mean just look at that veggie burger; it’s so obvious that its vegetables were just freshly picked from the garden behind McDonald’s (which is located in the train station, mind you – a very likely place for a garden). And the yogurt? No sugar added - none whatsoever. Yes, those questionably-bright red strawberries are organic, I guarantee it. Plus, there is WATER in that cup (albeit carbonated water…..so, not water at all, actually…..come on, McDonald’s, are you American or not?!) which did give me hiccups (again, thank you carbonation) but it tasted nice and healthy (I guess). Oh, and when you take pictures of fast food, keep in mind that if you leave the fries IN the bag, then they count as zero calories. Yeah! Cool, huh. Not pictured? No calories. Negative calories, even. Keep in mind I ate this on a train to Poland, with Germans all around me, eating their healthy homemade sandwiches and speaking in sentences at least 30 words in length, while I sat, decked out in American Apparel, watching American shows on my laptop, occasionally humming the star-spangled banner... but someone has to represent the US of A, right?

Moral of the story: it tasted good.

This is hilarious....and if the fries are still in the bag then they are indeed zero calories :)

Haha, sounds good to me! I hate how they don't have hashbrowns at the McDonalds over here. For a country that LOVE potatoes, they are missing out :)

I can just see you sitting on the train with your McDonalds and watching American shows with all the Germans around. If I had been with you I would have been eating a sausage and egg biscuit and orange juice. (I didn't know McDonalds sold veggie burgers.)

i don't think the mcdonald's in america sell the veggie burgers....that's a little TOO healthy for america, i'm afraid.

Hahaha...oh my gosh! Absolutely love this! I eat their oatmeal some morning and I definitely agree...absolutely no sugar added. Regardless of what those stupid healthy people say. It's oatmeal. That's healthy. DUH! : )
